Pope Attacks Global Economy: Money Is Evil?


When i was a catholic, i read that 'Money is evil', so i took it as my belief. I even had a desire then to be a nun so i will not have to be part of this so called 'evil', believing that a nun does not have to work to get money and that if i become one, i will go to heaven.

So, why is the pope urging people to fight for work when he does not have to fight for work to survive?  That has to be answered by those who can see clearly what is being accepted and allowed in this world and of course we have to forgive ourselves for accepting and allowing ourselves to support a system of abuse.

In the news, Pope Francis talks about money:

Francis said globalization had brought with it a culture where the weakest in society suffered the most and often, those on the fringes "fall away", including the elderly, who he said were victims of a "hidden euthanasia" caused by neglect of those no longer considered productive.
"To defend this economic culture, a throwaway culture has been installed. We throw away grandparents, and we throw away young people. We have to say no to his throwaway culture. We want a just system that helps everyone," he said.
The global economy is an ecosystem - a system formed  by the  relationships and interaction of the community of  people, plants, animals etc. and the physical environment. 

This will work well within the principle of equality where one develops an equal and one relationship with all the parts of the whole that is life.

Money is not evil.

Money should be given a value equal to life as all parts of life has the same value = Life.

Nature gave us its resources so we all can equally survive.

Why do we have very little jobs available and many unemployed?

'As mechanization has been increasing – which should simply function as the replacement of labor, not the replacement of employment: more and more jobs are lost.Yet, prices are still being inflated. And now we sit with massive unemployment, inflated pricing, a problem with supply and demand because people don’t have money to buy and consume. So despite an appearance of inflation, the economic reality is that the economies are shrinking and not inflating– and you sit with the problem that your real value of a product has been lost a long time ago, because the real value has been labor all along.. And because the ideas of saving, competition, inflating the corporation and the war for a monopolized control has become the way of the world — the reality of what really exists is no longer easily accessible because: all we have is our inflated images.'

'If we do not change the system, this Inflation point will have an effect. Obviously if theLiving Income Guaranteed becomes a reality, we have to change the economic model: it’s not working, it has a fake and false inflated image by economists that are not worthy of the word ‘Economist’ because they are not managing and researching the ecology, the ecosystem of the world to ensure that every human being’s basic Human Rights are being protected.'


What is the solution?

What should we do to make this work for everyone?

We have to look at nationalizing resources like water, oil etc. to create dividends enough to pay the poor, the elderly, the unemployed and the uneducated a Basic/Living Income, Guaranteed from birth to death in areas where this is needed and workable.

One of the big concerns that people have is that “If everyone gets a living wage, who is going to do all the dirty work?” because nobody wants to do it. So, in a Basic Income Guaranteed approach it’s going to be vital to change the ‘living wage’ or the Basic Minimum Wage and here it is suggested that it should be at least double the Basic Income Guaranteed so that it is a motivation for people that would like to live a more extravagant or luxurious life to actually do the work – whether it is a janitor, a road worker, a gardener, a child-minder, whomsoever works – and thus does not depend on the Basic Income Guaranteed, gets a minimum wage that is double the Basic Income Guaranteed, that will ensure that there is motivation for people to do the labor and for those that would like to improve their lives, while the Basic Income Guaranteed ensures that everybody has got enough to make a decent living.
The difference between the two would merely be a measure of luxury and therefore, businesses will have to consider that wage – which is obviously an input on production – must be equated within the price. And so, pricing will be based on ensuring that there are minimum wages and that people earn very good incomes. This will obviously increase again the amount of money that can be spent and so the economy will grow, the house market, the motor car markets… all the markets that are now in extreme trouble and where the trouble is increasing will all grow and life on Earth will be sustainable.

All of us deserves to live a life of dignity, not just a few.
