Living Income Guaranteed: Basic Nutrition and Education

Posted on Updated on

 

The latest research into basic nutrition, the medical profession and the researches claim that poverty cannot be addressed until basic nutrition has been addressed. The research also indicates that the amount of children that die and/or suffer from malnutrition is much higher than reported.

What is lacking in this understanding is that Basic Nutrition is subject to Basic Income. If there is no Basic Income, there can be no Basic Nutrition. Neither can there be ‘basic education’ because Basic Nutrition is dependent on Basic Education, and Basic Education is dependent on Basic Income. This is really easy to deduce and the repeated evidence – which is after all what science is based on – that is produced through the cycles that exist which is what a scientist measures, exists on earth forever and yet in spite of our claims of basic intelligence evolving, basic common sense seems to be going nowhere.

So, if you want to end poverty in the world, you’re going to have to sit down and work out for yourself on a piece of paper what Basic Nutrition is subject to:

  • Is it just existing or do you need ‘something’ before you get it?

So write down what is basic nutrition and then you write down what you need to get it per person, per family.

  • Then write out what Basic Nutrition is – meaning where do you get it from, you have to write down what is required, for you as Basic Education to be able to understand Basic Nutrition is.
  • Then, you write out what you require to have both Basic Education and Basic Nutrition and how you achieve that when there are no jobs available.

If you look at the latest figures of for instance Croatia, which is now becoming part of the European Union: 50% of the youth is unemployed and there are no jobs available; and they have no possibility of any changes in their future and they are the next generation of parents which are going to have children which are going to be subject to Basic Nutrition, but they don’t have Basic Income. Now, will they not have sex because they have no Basic Income or will they have sex and there will be children? Have a look at Africa, on average 50% and more of a country in Africa are without jobs. Even though unemployment is high – it doesn’t stop the fact that people will act within their basic nature and produce children. They will have no money, no Basic Income, no Basic Nutrition and no Basic Education – then the children suffer.

Those with money do understand these problems but refuse to consider a system that can resolve the issue. Because once you have Basic Education in place – which will produce an understanding of Basic Nutrition – you’re going to have a change in the population growth and it’s going to go down! You don’t have to ‘cull’ the human to reduce population growth, you just need to educate them and give them a reason to live: Basic Income Guaranteed. And, most of the evils in the world will go away by a simple application, a consideration to give to others as you would like to receive – you would like to have enough money, to have a decent life, to be able to give yourself and your children Basic Nutrition, to give yourself and your children the Basic Education and to have a basic happy lifestyle! Give that to everyone with Basic Income Guaranteed, ensure that your political parties – or the ones that you join and that you vote for – embrace a Basic Income Guaranteed and if you don’t have such a political party in your country: start one! It’s time to care.

Capitalism has always in times of great uncertainty and where the system was in melt down, moved towards war. If we want to prevent another World War, we need to sort out the ills of Capitalism which are based on the fact that there is a lack in consumption. This lack in consumption is causing a big problem with unemployment and is putting the profits of corporations under pressure, causing even more unemployment, causing more people without Basic Nutrition and Basic Education. This is all solved by one simple thing: Basic Income Guaranteed, and we can Guarantee a Society that is Living in Balance.

Living Income Guaranteed and Human Rights

Posted on Updated on

 

Why are the Human Rights of every person on Earth not protected? If one takes this to the level of a parent, every parent wants for their children the best future in this world. With the current application and the implication of the way that our current system functions, it is more based on luck than on the fact that one has a birth right as a human on Earth to have a decent life with basic needs fulfilled. No one that currently has got these needs fulfilled would like to give it up and live in the conditions of those that do not have Human Rights in this polarized system between haves and have not’s.

With the Basic Income Guaranteed – which is in a way positive capitalism – this problem can be resolved and a lot of unnecessary discord and wars on Earth can come to an end because we have a system that works. War has only become an easy way for the few elites to make a lot of money, utilizing people living in poverty through paying them a pittance for their patriotism to go out there and kill people. And all of this just to support an arms industry that is in its very nature of existence a violation of Human Rights in every way.

We suggest that it is important to investigate what Human Rights are for you and then to have a look if you have them. If you are lucky enough to have them, then also investigate if everybody has got them as well and if they don’t: we have the responsibility to ensure that they get them. If we are not willing to live the lives of those in poverty, then why should we keep others refrained from their right to have a dignified living? Currently we’re living in a modern day holocaust wherein capitalism and elitism have become part of our individual ideology in which we haven’t learned to care for anyone else but ourselves and where we use money as a dividing line between having Human Rights and not having Human Rights, accepting it as ‘how the world works.’

Through the correct use of democracy, there is going to be a change in the system and once we all realize that we can use politics to bring about a change, we can use democracy as the majority rule to bring about a change that is best for all. Within this there are also going to be consequences, because the violation of Human Rights will certainly be investigated – even only in a way like what happened in South Africa after the apartheid era, a forgiveness tribunal was established where what really happened was exposed, so that we all can learn from it and prevent it from ever happening again.

We suggest that we all get involved now, let’s realize that there is a change in the awareness of the human being wherein slowly but surely, we are all having the realization that we’ve been taken for a ride through propaganda and through manipulation of the mind, which is a necessary and inevitable step to finally take the veil off our eyes. Rather than waiting until it happens – which will place one squarely in a position where you may be perceived to have been part of the violation of Human Rights – we suggest to act now and take action. It’s going to take a lot of education and it’s going to take a lot of effort to help those that are stuck, which are the people with money – the rest have been stuck because they don’t have money and they have to focus on always getting money to survive day by day –  but something is certain: this will not continue the way it exists now.

Ask yourself the BIG question: why is it that everyone on Earth does not have Equal Human Rights? Why is it that Human Rights have become a commodity that can be bought with money?

Basic Income Guaranteed - Human Rights are Not Optional

Living Income Guaranteed: Taxation and Transparency

Posted on Updated on

One of the fundamental problems in the world in how crime develops is through tax and tax evasion and for that, specially companies employ lawyers to find loopholes in laws so that they can set up all kinds of foundations and charities with which to evade tax; and with which to influence the markets and the goods available to the consumer, to benefit their own bottom line. Now with Basic Income Guaranteed it is suggested that there is no tax at a personal level and no tax at a corporate level and that one only works with either sales tax or value added tax or, if necessary, with an import duty.

Charities and foundations should be eradicated because they are actually only duplicating the work that should have been done by the government – and the government being the people, the government is not a separate corporation and it is the social arm of the people. Therefore all the work done by charities is actually the work and responsibilities of the government of the citizens, for the citizens. And this duplication exists in order to be able to evade tax, placing governments under pressure to borrow more money, taking vast parts of the budget going towards interest is quite a foolish thing to do because that just makes the government more ineffective.

The most sought after jobs in the world should be those within the government that will require the highest level of expertise with very clear guidelines to ensure that the work delivered at all times is without question the best that can be. After all the foundation of respect between citizens is based on effectively delivering goods and services required to live. This is being hampered by the current methodology where especially profit and tax evasion plays a role and where the services of government are undermined – in many cases deliberately – simply to make profit quickly. This type of behavior which is a form of financial treason, should be outlawed in every way.

And therefore the positioning of accounting services really should be replaced by automation – this implies a universal software that is linked to the banking industry which is under Basic Income Guaranteed which automatically assesses the profit margins and automatically keeps a tap on the income to make sure that the minimum wage is always adhered to, as well as ensuring that nobody can defraud the system. The only reason why there is no transparency at any level when money moves is because there is dishonesty. Absolute transparency means nothing is hidden and one should also apply this within the context of the pricing of goods so that one ensures that when a company is operational, there is enough money moving to ensure everyone gets their wages and that there is sufficient profit for the investors, so that at the end of the day the sales tax and the value added tax are paid effectively. All of that can be automated, removing the human factor that at this stage causes so many problems, because of the temptation that still exists to abuse the use of resources for personal benefit.This will only be stopped in time through education and understanding how peace and harmony depend on our ability to trust one another.

Basic Income Guaranteed and Taxation

Living Income Guaranteed and Property Ownership

Posted on Updated on

Basic Income Guaranteed is particularly focused on those situations where a person is not in a position to have sufficient income to be able to participate as an equal within society through spending, purchasing, ensuring the basic needs required for a human to exist. There are conditions where a Basic Income Guaranteed is not required meaning that those that have = do not qualify for a Basic Income Guaranteed which is destined to ensure that there is enough income available to support those when in trouble, or when society is not yet able to produce sufficient jobs.

One of the foundations of capitalism is owning property, but also one of the foundations of capitalism is having a society that is able to consume because they have the means with which to do so, and this is why it is suggested that a balance must be struck.

The basic regulation would be that if you have more than one house you’re owning = you do not qualify for a Basic Income Guaranteed because you are able – due to your property value – to sustain yourself or at the very least, you’ll have to sell one of the properties and then if you do not have employment, you’ll be able to qualify for a Basic Income Guaranteed.

Another point is Investments. If you are able to sustain yourself through your investments – that means you have money somewhere in some form = you won’t need such investments any longer, because the Basic Income Guaranteed will also act as a pension. Eventually, a mechanism will have to be established to see at which level investment would be sufficient so that you are no longer dependent on the Basic Income Guaranteed and you are able to sustain yourself. Therefore savings or investments from the perspective of it creating sufficient wealth for you to sustain yourself will automatically place you in a position where you do not require a Basic Income Guaranteed, because you are able to financially sustain yourself.

Capital growth is thus one of the points that will be promoted within a Basic Income Guaranteed system because it will eventually create a situation where one will be able to be financially self-sustained, and the objective is to get each human to be financially self-sustained so that you are no longer dependent on your social systems – pension plans, insurance, loans, investments – as well as acquiring the skill to use capital in a way that you actually are able to sustain your existence. Then capitalism will become a functional system that benefits everyone with this necessary support when needed and a necessary responsibility when your Basic Income Guaranteed is no longer required. This also places one within the self-development mindset that capitalism represents where you specifically acquire skills to eventually free yourself from the needed support, because you have been able to create for yourself a self-support system. Within your hierarchy of needs this would mean that you have achieved a level of self-fulfillment, thus a higher level of living within responsibility.

The psychological benefit one can find within capitalism will be worthwhile as it is structured practically within this reality, you do not have the stress that comes if you get to fail in your endeavor and you have nowhere to go, because there will be support. And as we have noticed within capitalism, one tends to fail the first few times because you haven’t got the skills yet and the experience, although that should be developed also within the education system so that failure is limited to the minimum, because failure means resources get wasted and when resources get wasted: it becomes more difficult to have a sustainable balanced system.
