Money and justice

The gap between rich and poor is widening. This is a well known and accepted fact. The reason is the money. If there was no more money, there would be no more concept of rich and poor.

With a money-based society model, we will always run after the solutions without reaching them. We are spinning in a circle.

This explains how a society can function without money.

The corona lockdown reduced the economy and global transport to such an extent that it seemed that global warming caused by CO2 could be stopped. But the politicians are quickly feeding the ominous consumer-throwaway cycle again with a lot of money. No climate protection initiative has even tried to maintain this state of rest. The reason for this is that everyone takes it for granted that money has to be earned. And as long as there is money, it will stay that way.

The Swiss sociologist, politician and one of the best-known critics of capitalism and globalization, Jean Ziegler, is clearly of the opinion that there must and will be a change in the system in order to eliminate injustice in the world. He sees the solution in a planetary civil society. However, civil society only works on a voluntary basis. Only when there is no money can this general society become a reality.

Pope Francis is passionate and active in eliminating injustice in the world. In his writings he places love at the center. The brotherly love between all people on our earth. When this love is a reality, there are no more disadvantaged because everyone seeks the benefit of the other. But where money is involved, there can be no love, since brotherly love can only be gratuitous. There is only one solution to this contradiction: the abolition of money.

Today’s philosophers and thinkers see the dawn of a new age, that of the planetary age. For the first time, humanity is able to free itself from gravity, to view our planet from the outside and to sense its fragility. In addition, thanks to technical and scientific progress, today we would be able to enable all people on earth to live without need. There has not been something like that before. Humanity is ready for a great step towards a new quality of living together. Towards a togetherness in brotherly and sisterly love without the limiting yardstick of money. The behavior of almost all of humanity during the Covid-19 lockdown has also shown what drastic and sudden changes we can handle with almost no problems.

How do you want to do that, a life without money?

Very easily. A deadline is set from which all people in the world will do the same thing they did before. But nobody gets money for it and nobody has to pay anything. Everyone works for free, but they get roughly what they have bought regularly for free. The compulsion to have to buy more and more will then no longer exist, since no one can make a profit.

Nobody will commission advertising, but the people who have previously worked in the advertising industry will still receive the regular items that they have received so far because they are simply available. But they could stay home. After a while, they will get bored and find a volunteer job that they are drawn to without having to go to an employment agency. Maybe they help in industries where there is a bottleneck. Out of gratitude for that, because they got everything they need for free.

The same applies of course to other industries that are then no longer needed.

There will also be no expropriations during the transition to this moneyless society, since property that is not needed will be given away by itself. For example: A wealthy person owns a large piece of land worth, for example, 10 million euros. When there is no more money, he still owns this land. But it is no longer an object of value but becomes a burden that he will probably part with. He will only keep as much land as he can cultivate himself.

Maybe some things will turn out badly, but there will be much more things that turn out good. Let’s just think of the disappearance of human and drug trafficking, dumping, usury with rent and stock market transactions in food.
