One World Rising: 'Moneyless Manifesto' - video ab. Mark Boyle's book of the same name - Dec. 29 (He emphasizes a localized, gift-based economy)

Yes. Getting there. And Charles Eisenstein’s ideas on ‘Spiritual Economics’ – money treated as a gift. And Michael Tellinger’s working with the principle of Ubuntu in South Africa. And Jacque Fresco/thevenusproject; and Peter Joseph’s thezeitgeistmovement. And. And…
And the key to it all, to my mind, is the understanding that We Are All One. Is the reality of reincarnation. Without which understanding (aka We Are One Another), we will continue still to see ourselves as separate beings, with no real reason for being, other than simply for itself only; and thus, what I do to others (and Gaia) makes no difference to me. Unless, of course, I can con them into supporting me, in my personal pursuit of some sort, at least, of happiness in life. Me. You. With no REAL connection between us…
I am saying that it is not enough for us simply to be looking at withdrawing our consumption habits from the system, or replacing oil with hemp, or a hundred other specific items of withdrawal of support from the Beast. The Beast itself must be slain – and replaced with Truth. The Truth about Life. (Ta-da!) Yes; Mark Boyle’s ‘The Moneyless Manifesto’ is part of that. But only a part. If we don’t include the REASON for, not just another, more holistic take on social life, but for life itself, we are not getting there, or getting it; or going to enlist the mass of humanity in our Cause.
We do it – want it; a better way of doing things, of being – because the universe has Purpose; and that Purpose is Good. Without that piece to the picture, we are just spinning our wheels. Making sound and fury, signifying nothing. A tree falling in a forest with no ears. Or few.
This is fundamental to life, now. We need not to blow this Opportunity. Yes, the economic system has to collapse. But it has to collapse, in order for something better to replace it with. Not just more of the same, essentially; just dressed up differently.
Like us, in the parts we play, over and over again. Until we get – really get – what we’re doing; and don’t want to play at ‘life’ anymore. Want the real thing.
And won’t settle for anything less.
It’s all. Or nothing.
