Retirees are living off iT
Baby Boomers prospered from iT
Students don't get much of iT
Bankers depend on IT
The Rich are addicted to iT
Governments function because of iT
Yet nobody wants respsonsibility for iT [more]
Expect to start reading more like the above as the Industrial Economic Model collapses and more realize it is becoming an Udder World.
The problem with our current political, social, economic, financial, and legal systems are they are not prepared to handle the new technology that is rapidly unfolding right before our eyes and very disruptive to current paradigms. [more]
As more realize we can't borrow our way to prosperity [more]
When you give money/financial assets(the legal right to the production of others) to a few and NOT the many.....you make the many slaves of the few in the current system.
Now, if government doesn't free the slaves....what moral and legal obligation do you think they have?
FREEDOM FAILED WHEN WALL STREET WAS TOO BIG TO FAIL [more]
With a population of over 7 billion, humanity can't keep consuming the earth's resources at the current rate
Every war in history has been fought over CONTROL OF PRODUCTION/RESOURCES
(the FREEDOM to control one's own production and the capability to control the production/resources of others)
ADVANCING DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY decreases the need to CONTROL others(labor) and control resources
EVERYONE is entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness
FREEDOM is the right to control one's own life and production
In a SPECIALIZED WORLD, we collectively depend on the production of others for life (food, water, shelter, security. etc....)
Very few around the world are truly self-sufficient anymore
MONEY is simply the means to obtain/control another's production
There are THREE FORMS of money used to obtain/control the production of another:
TRADE-The Mutual Exhange of Production
FORCE-The Unilateral Demand of Production Without Consent
In a CONSUMPTION ECONOMY, jobs drive production and without jobs, trade is not possible for most people
Government bailing out a few with government MONEY, and NOT the many, is the modern day equivalent of economic slavery
It concentrates the people's MONEY in the hands of the few unjustly permitting the privileged to control the lives of the many
When TRADE is impossible, the only two ways to control production of another is LOVE and/or FORCE
And often, LOVE is in short supply when desperation is high
In a KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY, technology drives production & decreases the need to control others for production
As human production advances to DIGITAL, the need to consume the earth's resources will deminish radically
The issue facing humanity, and its 7 billion inhabitants, is whether we can advance from an UNSUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION ECONOMY to a SUSTAINABLE KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY without destroying the earth, and many of those living on it.
FREEDOM IS THE ABILITY TO CONTROL YOUR OWN LIFE
Money is simply the means to control other lives.
How does society allocate control/freedom when government/We The People can print money out of thin air and hand control of other's lives to whoever it wants? [more]
The past generation bankrupted America....
They refuse to let students dischage their debts in bankruptcy.....
They don't give the students much opportunity in the current economy.....
And now technology is replacing most of the adults "job" functionality......yet the adults still want control of other people's production/lives with their bankrupt financial assets
RELAX......if we start paying people to learn....everyone will have a "job" [more]
UDDER WORLD'S SOLUTION FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORLD
Instead of handing trillions of OUR taxpayer dollars to Wall Street....and wasting trillions more on unnecessary military spending:
... Advance humanity to a technologically driven world where we get PAID to learn. This way, we can learn all the way up until we die and retirement begins at birth.
We can learn anything we want, and applying that knowledge to further society will only add to one's compensation. With current technology, we can deliver education for free in an online format (www.khanacademy.org)...and virtual technology is improving everyday. Further, we can SUSTAINABLY deliver a world class education globally without much consumption of resources or the need to build much infastructure.
Imagine how fast humanity can advance with 7 Billion educated people....ALL getting paid to learn and advance humanity?
This was not possible in a resource consumption based economy and/or before internet technology.
The Udder World is closer than you think....we just have to start thinking. [more]
Is this what the government has planned for retirees? One generation borrowed 10X more than all generations combined. Now they want to saddle this debt on the next generation and retire? [more]
Each accusing each other of screwing America....concentric contraction traction reaction.
It is rapidly becoming an Udder World as our unsustainable CONSUMPTION system collapses and we move forward into a technologically driven knowledge based world. [more]
As technology makes people and functioning more efficient, the need for financial workers and financial services will be greatly reduced and/or eliminated. [more]
Udder World has taken on a new focus: [more]
As an Udder World reader, you should be prepared for a financial panic. It is something we have been forecasting since 5/11/11.
We will get through it, and when we do....consumption and production will be allocated more fairly. [more]
GOVERNMENT'S (WE THE PEOPLE'S) PRINTING PRESS
If government can print $23 Trillion dollars (WE THE PEOPLE'S MONEY) and simply hand it to the top few percent of society, OVER $1 million dollars for every man, woman, and child...who would otherwise be bankrupt,
Why can't it print a similar amount and hand it to the rest of the population.
This way, the one who did not get bailed out would no longer have to be the economic slave of the one that did in a system where one needs money to eat. [more]
Yes...as we analyze the current corrupt system, we can sound like downers.
But we are fortunate to have some really smart and creative people to consult with here at Udder World. Many have way too much education and those with Ivy League degrees are not penalized.
As more and more current human functioning gets replaced by technology....we believe humans will get compensated in unforseeable ways in the future.
Right now, most people pay to get an education. With education moving online and virtual....soon we will be able to educate the world at little or no cost. Further, it will be in humanity's best interest to have as highly educated society as possible.
FORECAST: In the not too distant future....instead of paying for an education, people will get paid to get educated and serve society.....and they can get paid right up until they die. Kiss retirement good-bye in the Udder World....we will be having way too much fun. [more]
Without Freedom.......there is no such concept as "investing" [more]
WE DON'T NEED MANY SALES PEOPLE WITH DIGITAL MARKETING [more]
Remember, it is the Gardner Brothers advising you to invest in Wall Street.....plus a whole lot of Fools that call themselves "investors." The funny part about it all, most of them couldn't give you a decent definition of money.....yet they are dispensing advice about money? [more]
Capitalism fails when capitalism is too big to fail....now the only way to keep the system going is criminal fraud. [more]
WHY PEOPLE MUST UNDERSTAND ZOMBULATION....
Zombulation is convulsive impact of BOTH Financial Deleveraging and Advancing Technology eliminating more jobs GLOBALLY than humanity has ever seen ever before.
It is NOT something to be afraid of....simply something to be aware of.
We live in a jobs based society. Jobs drive incomes to families, revenues to business, and taxes to government. Without SUFFICIENT jobs at sufficient pay, our CURRENT system collapses- just like the tractor collapsed America's horse and plow farming agricultural system a little over 100 years ago.
However, this time is we have over 300,000,000 people vs. only 50,000,000 when the last change occured....and few are aware of what is happening. Furthermore, unlike last time, we have 100,000,000 Americans today dependent on a bankrupt government for monthly income.
Without understanding the problem....we can't identify a sustainable solution. And most politicians have no clue what is happening right in front of our faces.
There are solutions...but first there must be awareness. [more]
WALL STREET TAXPAYER BAILED OUT RECIPIENTS LIVE IN $20-$40 MILLION DOLLAR HOMES [more]
THE 1% ARE SCREWING THE CHILDREN
THE PRIMARY REASON THE 1% HAVE A NET WORTH IS BECAUSE WE ARE BORROWING TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF PUBLIC MONEY [more]
Where we will all know that most of our current jobs can easily be replaced by technology or will be eliminated by deleveraging.
THE "CAPITALISTS" KILLED CAPITALISM [more]
And anyone else recommending anyone to invest in organizations knowingly and intentionally concealing information from shareholders and those that bailed them out. [more]
Because if we treated Wall Street like everyone else, they would be Globally MFed.
Welcome to the Udder World....Where all men are created equal...and there is equal justice for all.
In order to understand Alstry's blogging, you must understand money. MOST INVESTORS DON'T. Money is simply the means to obtain the production of another.....in essence, it is the primary representation of the production of humanity....see previous blog. [more]
If you understand money...you understand life and human nature.
Most people go through school and life really never really understanding money. It is strange since it is something we spend our entire lives laboring for, trying to save, and few really know what it is...
To understand money, you must understand human production. Human production is simply the effort/output of a human....in essence, it is human life and the driver of life. It is our thoughts, efforts, and creativity manifested through a variety of outlets....both tangible and intangible.
It is the quest for most people to control the production of others....for in specialized systems, such production is often the difference between life and death. If we can get the production of the farmer, we can get food if we don't farm...in an urban setting, we want the production of the grocer.
Production/intellect is the key difference that separates humans from animals....
Money is simply the derivative of human production....the two are interchangable. Money is the means to obtain another's production.
There are three basic forms of money:
TRADE-the voluntary exchange of goods and services (and derivatives of trade including currency, gold, and silver)
FORCE-the unilateral demand of another's production without consent
All three are effective forms of obtaining another's production...listed in declining morality.
Currency is simply the means most people use to obtain production in the industrial age. Without making this post too long, when bankers break down the morality of currency it becomes impossible for many to trade.....and the only way for people to survive is LOVE(begging) and FORCE.
When bankers print currency out of thin air, like they are doing now....and don't tie its creation to human production....the bankers are essentially counterfeiting currency and stealing the production/life of humanity.
As people figure it out...they get angry and begin to reject currency for their production...such as go on strike. As currency breaks down in functionality...the only choice bankers and government have to control the production of people is FORCE/war. People will almost do anything in a war environment.
We are now on the brink of currency breaking down globally due to unprecedented counterfeiting by bankers As this is written, the West is imposing restrictions on Iran's financial capability to trade. Such restrictions are essentially a declaration of war as nations must be able to trade for their populations to survive.
Russia and China have proactively stated they will defend Iran against aggression.....and today, the vast majority of our Senate decided to be aggressive.
Hang on....facts are moving fast.....Udder World will keep you updated as issues develop.
US firearms sales hit all-time high on Black Friday [more]
THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP THE BANKRUPT INDUSTRIAL AGE FUNCTIONING IS THROUGH CORRUPTION
How much fraud will America tolorate? Much more than Udder World could have ever dreamed....as this generation controls the lives/production of the next generation though fraudulently propping up financial assets.
Why would anyone invest in the stock market these days when fraud is not only rampant, but encouraged by government officials. [more]
Alstry is the only blogger addressing the impact of Financial Deleveraging AND Advancing Technology collapsing Industrial Functioning. Most address one or the other. [more]
In the United States, for 30 years we have been borrowing more and more money to fuel a system where we each labored for each other. As we borrowed more, we payed ourselves more...some saved more...others went into more debt.
... The assumption of the entire system was we could keep borrowing....and we did. In 1980 we started with only $5 trillion of TOTAL debt....today it is over $50 Trillion and government owes us another $50 trillion that it can never pay based on current tax receipts....unless we borrow even more.
Now, instead of us borrowing personally to drive this system, we are borrowing publicly...which is legally and morally borrowing against our children's future production....which is basically theft/fraud knowing they can't pay it back.
To compound the problem for ourselves and our children, technology is replacing the need for us to service each other as much....and the ability for us to get jobs. Consequently our system of borrowing, based on jobs, is collapsing right before our eyes, yet many of us look the other way.
Soon we will ALL be forced to look....the only question now is when and what will be the trigger?
The three most likely situations will be a very large conflict, economic collapse, or a combination of both. But remember, it is not the end of the world, simply the end of an unsustainable economic model...and if we act PROactively...we can avoid much of the distress.
TECHNOLOGY IS REPLACING PEOPLE AS LABOR
What should we do with all the people?
