  • - Awakening -

  • The world today is broken.

  • Business, financial and political leaders have led us into despair,

  • and the selective pop culture style news that floods our mainstream media

  • have done nothing but fuel anger and confusion

  • among the American population and the population of the world.

  • Fortunately there is a logical solution to fix

  • many of the ills that plague us all today,

  • but one of the hardest things for a culture to do

  • is step back and realize that a major shift needs to occur

  • in order for the future of their children to be secured.

  • The solution is simple, but it is not easy.

  • Changes of this nature never are,

  • but they are obvious throughout history,

  • and they mark key points in humanity where we rose to the next level,

  • and made life better for a larger group of people.

  • History can be broken into levels of development.

  • Level 1 showcased the nomadic and cave based humans,

  • capable of only sustaining themselves, their mate and their children.

  • Level 2 showcased the Hunter/Gatherer humans,

  • capable of sustaining their group.

  • Level 3 showcased the Agricultural humans,

  • capable of sustaining their towns.

  • Level 4 showcased the Industrial human,

  • capable of sustaining large cities,

  • their nation and nations in desperate need.

  • And now we are at the doorstep of Level 5, the Technology human,

  • capable of sustaining the world and the entire human population

  • at a high standard of living.

  • As each new level was reached,

  • a change in the economic system needed to occur

  • in order to be the most efficient for the new paradigm.

  • What needs to change now is the system of economics

  • that governs the Technological Age.

  • What's needed is the proper resource utilization of the entire planet

  • for the benefit of the entire human race

  • and not just a portion of it.

  • But before we detail this change,

  • we must start by addressing the problems we're facing today

  • and the root cause as to why we have them in the first place.

  • Only by understanding our problems,

  • and how they came about, can we begin to develop a solution.

  • We have inflation, ever increasing taxes,

  • significant unemployment, political corruption,

  • energy concerns, financial instability,

  • crime, environmental issues and so much more.

  • It is obvious why the world is so stressed

  • and humanity suffers as it does.

  • Now, more than ever, is the time for humanity

  • to stand up and do something about it.

  • Politicians and industry alike have repeatedly tried

  • over and over to solve these issues, and never once have they succeeded.

  • The best they've ever done is delay or mask the concerns.

  • The reason for this will be made clear during this video,

  • but in short, it's because no one has ever seriously addressed the root cause

  • for all of these issues,

  • and that cause is the outdated system of economics

  • we use around the world today.

  • The Monetary System, or more specifically the Price System,

  • is the basic underlying factor that is the fundamental cause

  • for all of the issues we're facing today.

  • By definition: A price system is any economic system

  • that effects its distribution of goods and services

  • with prices based on commodity evaluation

  • and uses any form of money or debt tokens.

  • Do not confuse this with Capitalism, the Free Market,

  • or any other term an economist would use.

  • It is also very important to understand that this is not a political argument,

  • and has absolutely nothing to do with political controls.

  • Every nation on this planet, no matter their political ideology,

  • be it a Democracy, Monarchy, Socialism, Communism or whatever,

  • operates using this same underlying economic system.

  • They ALL employ this system

  • for the exchange of goods and services throughout the world.

  • It is the one major common link between everyone,

  • which is also why it is the fundamental cause

  • for so many problems we see in the world today.

  • And here's why:

  • The Monetary System requires 2 key components to work:

  • Scarcity and Growth.

  • In the past, prior to 1800,

  • these two requirements were perfectly valid throughout the world.

  • This was a time when traveling just 500 miles was dangerous,

  • if not deadly, and the shipping of goods was no less difficult.

  • Scarcity is very important in this system,

  • because it serves the purpose of establishing value... price.

  • Think back to Economics 101: Supply and Demand.

  • The less the supply, the more scarce it is,

  • therefore the price is higher.

  • The more the supply, the less value it has,

  • so the price is lower.

  • Prior to 1800 there really was true scarcity as a natural phenomenon,

  • and since modern civilization was still rather young,

  • there was plenty of room for growth, so both requirements were satisfied.

  • Today however, these 2 requirements are gone

  • and the Monetary System is in serious trouble and under great stress.

  • Just look at all the financial industry problems that have destroyed lives

  • in the past few years alone. They are impossible to ignore.

  • Scarcity has been eliminated by the advent of technology,

  • and with the absence of scarcity, there is simply less growth.

  • We have reached a point where we can produce more of everything

  • than we can consume and the only true expansion left is into the stars,

  • which itself is severely restricted by cost.

  • In the Monetary system, money, or debt,

  • is the life blood of the system and therefore it is necessary

  • to continuously create new debt to validate the existing debt.

  • So our financial manipulators are always seeking new ways

  • to justify the creation of additional debt.

  • They are willfully blind or blatantly ignorant of the root concerns.

  • Just look at how in debt our society is right now

  • as compared to just 50 years ago.

  • It's important to notice

  • that it was around 1980 when the debt started to skyrocket,

  • which coincides perfectly with the fact that this was also the time

  • when technology started to seriously expand,

  • giving humanity the ability to make life better for everyone,

  • if the technology would be used that way.

  • To better understand our present social instability,

  • we should review the principle physical events

  • that have led up to our current mess.

  • To help with this, let's establish a time reference.

  • The two dates shown aren't specifically important,

  • but just separate the time line into three distinct regions.

  • Now let's start adding vital information that will help you understand

  • how we got to where we are in today's world.

  • Prior to 1800, the world was a low energy society.

  • Why? Because throughout all recorded history before this time,

  • the primary energy conversion machine for doing work was the human being,

  • and a healthy human can only produce about 0.1 Horse Power (HP).

  • In comparison, a washing machine motor is more powerful,

  • averaging 0.5 Horse Power (HP).

  • Regardless of this low power number, 98% of all work done during this time

  • was a result of human labor, because humanity had not yet developed

  • advanced technology to do the work for them.

  • The other 2% came from sources outside of human muscle,

  • which we will call non-human energy.

  • The sources of this energy came from animals,

  • like horses and oxen, and crude technology like windmills and water wheels.

  • Because the human being is so limited,

  • the output from his work is also limited,

  • so no matter how many people you had on the job,

  • or how long they worked,

  • they could never produce quite enough to cover growing populations,

  • or provide a high quality of living for everyone.

  • If ever a few people did enjoy a decent standard of living,

  • it was always at the expense of the many who barely survived.

  • The fact is that throughout history, 95% of all people were either

  • peasants, serfs, slaves or indentured servants,

  • even up to the time of George Washington.

  • From the dawn of man until around 1800,

  • the 98% of work done by humans

  • and the other 2% by other means never changed,

  • ever.

  • This is over 7,000 years of recorded human history

  • with absolutely ZERO change in this dynamic.

  • This caused every society on the planet

  • to live in a Social Steady State,

  • which means there was no change in the rate of energy conversion at all.

  • There was no fundamental change in how people worked to produce goods,

  • and so scarcity prevailed everywhere.

  • Now just prior to the year 1800, a very significant event occurred.

  • In 1782, James Watt developed the first steam engine.

  • This invention was the beginning of an entirely new way to do work.

  • It was the beginning of the widespread use of non-human energy

  • and since that time there has been an accelerated effort to build

  • bigger, faster and more efficient machines to convert energy into work.

  • That effort has spread throughout the world,

  • with the United States as a primary leader.

  • Over the next 100 years, from 1800 to 1900,

  • we find that the two energy lines started changing significantly!

  • The Non-Human Energy line moved up, and the Human Energy line moved down.

  • In America, studies were done in the 1920's

  • to see what social impact this change was having.

  • Data was gathered on every basic industry in North America,

  • charting the growth of production, the rates of energy conversion,

  • declining man hours, and the overall effects on employment.

  • It was predicted that if the trends continued at the same rate,

  • the lines would cross and look like this.

  • Humanity was evolving from a low energy society

  • to a high energy society as the two lines switched places.

  • This new condition is the exact opposite of what had occured

  • all throughout recorded history, and that is no small change.

  • Time to get a bit technical, so bear with me:

  • As of 1992, noted by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce and Census,

  • America had over 35.3 billion horsepower of installed prime movers.

  • What does that mean?

  • Prime movers are mechanical engines, turbines, and work animals,

  • which originally convert fuels or force (such as wind or falling water)

  • into work and power. Let's break it down by person.

  • Prior to 1800, the average society had an energy conversion

  • of just 2000 kg calories per person.

  • Does that number sound familiar?

  • What is the calorie intake

  • that is labeled on virtually every food item you buy?

  • A 2,000 calorie diet.

  • So it makes sense that if people are the primary workers

  • their energy is limited by their average calorie intake.

  • Now back to 1992:

  • 35.3 Billion HP equals over 22 TRILLION kg calories

  • and the population of the United States was just over 250 million people.

  • So in 1992, America was converting more then 89,000 kg calories per person

  • of just non-human energy.

  • That is over 44 times larger, a gain of over 4000%,

  • as compared to the average society prior to 1800.

  • This was a significant source of American growth and prosperity.

  • We were the first and only country

  • that was able to produce more then it could consume.

  • Fast forward to today and consider these implications

  • in our globally connected world.

  • So what does the Monetary system have to do with all this?

  • The Monetary system has started to falter over the past 90 years,

  • because the conditions of life on this planet have drastically changed.

  • The two major requirements of the Monetary System to survive,

  • scarcity and growth, no longer truly exists.

  • The globe has stabilized as far as growth is concerned

  • and scarcity has been eradicated by technology.

  • As a result, we've experienced serious economic problems,

  • and any solution that has ever been tried has served only

  • as a patchwork solution of bubble gum

  • in a cracking dam that is destined to break.

  • No solution ever addresses the fundamental problem,

  • because to do so

  • would require a fundamental shift in our economic structure,

  • and the people who have benefited the most from this system

  • refuse to change the game.

  • The surveys done in the 1920's covered every manufacturing industry,

  • which were then plotted on charts.

  • This chart is a summary of all those findings averaged together.

  • The first line reflects physical production.

  • From 1830 to 1900 production was low and growth was slow.

  • Then we moved into a period of rapid growth.

  • This was due to advances in technology and machinery,

  • and a greater use of non-human energy.

  • From 1900 to about 1930

  • there was a spectacular exponential growth in physical production,

  • at about 7% per year compounded each year.

  • However, this could not last forever, and a leveling off occured.

  • Now let's add another curve

  • to show what was happening to the man hours per unit.

  • This represents one person working one hour, regardless of their task.

  • Notice in the early 1800's that man hours were high,

  • but then dropped as industry developed.

  • This was inevitable, because it was cheaper to use technology vs. people.

  • A kilowatt hour will do the work of 26 man hours, but at a far less cost.

  • The Monetary System encourages businesses to replace costly manpower

  • with cheaper and more productive technology, in order to maximize

  • PROFIT!

  • Now, from the 1980's onward we have a unique situation

  • that has NEVER been present throughout the history of mankind.

  • High production with far less human work needed.

  • This would be great for everyone

  • were it not for the interference of the Monetary System,
