I have added the Equal Money System FAQ information and perspectives explaining how these events will change or stop within the Equal Money System.

Here are the key events in world news for the month of December 2011.
• Parliamentary Elections Spark Massive Protests in Russia (Dec. 4): Parliamentary elections spark protests, mainly from middle-class Russians. International and local monitors condemn the election as fraudulent. United Russia, the party led by Vladimir Putin, comes out on top in the elections, receiving nearly 50 percent of the vote, but they lost 77 seats. Monitors say that United Russia would have lost more seats were it not for ballot-box stuffing and voting irregularities. For example, videos, some taken with cellphones, surfaced on the internet showing local authorities threatening subordinates at polling stations. (Dec. 10): Over 40,000 Russians rally near the Kremlin. It is the largest anti-Kremlin protest since the early 1990s and is approved by city authorities, although riot police are on hand. The activists call for Putin's resignation and denounce the election results. Putin accuses the United States, singling out Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, for instigating the demonstrations when she criticized conduct during the parliamentary elections. (Dec. 12): Billionaire industrialist Mikhail D. Porkhorov announces that he plans to run for president against Putin in 2012. Porkhorov owns many businesses in Russia as well as the New Jersey Nets, the NBA franchise, in the United States. In his announcement, Porkhorov says, "I made a decision, probably the most serious decision in my life: I am going to the presidential election." Many observers question if Porkhorov is truly challenging Putin or if he has Putin's approval to run to create an air of legitimacy to the race.
• European Leaders Call for Changes to Treaty (Dec. 5): Together German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President Nicolas Sarkozy of France make a joint call for Europe's governing treaties to be amended in order to provide better governance on the economic policies of the 17 countries within the euro zone. The proposed amendments include monthly meetings of all European leaders, automatic penalties for nations that exceed deficit limits, and a creation of a European monetary fund.
Why using Money as a solution – will money not lead to corruption again?
Money is not intrinsically Evil or does not by itself promulgate greed. In the current system it is the way money is used and defined, that is promulgating greed – those are rules that are agreed upon. The rules of what money is based on can thus be changed. An example of such a rule, is that: no one has right to any money unless someone has worked for it. This rule dictates that children will receive no support in this world unless directly by Parents that work to earn money to sustain the child or indirectly through redirected taxes. (A third way can be through charity but that is not consistent enough to be of any significance in the bigger picture.) A consequence of this rule is that children born on earth in the current system have no right to exist – because the fact that this child exists does not grant it the right to actually have the means to live, which is money. Rights only come with labor – And if you are unable to buy yourself the right to exist through labor, someone else must be found that can buy that right for you.
This rule creates a situation of fear. Because under such conditions no-one’s existence is ever secure – as your ability to live is permanently dependent on your ability to get money from the system.
Here we can easily see that it is the rules of the money-system that are creating a struggle for survival.
It is important to see that such a struggle is a result of the rules of society – which are man-made – and not a condition of life per say.
Many use the argument that ‘the struggle for life’ can be found in the Animal Kingdom as well – which is then brought forth as the reason why such a struggle is inevitable in general. Though when placed in the proper perspective, this is invalid: because there is at this stage no reason for starvation to exist or for anyone to exist in any form of deprivation. There is actually enough for everyone today – this fact is well known, and the reason why no change has thus far come forth is due to lack of political will.
One has to understand greed. Greed is created out of fear there will at some point not be enough. So therefore one will grab as much as possible, disregarding anyone and everyone else – because in fear one is only able to act in self-interest, especially when it comes to fear of death.
Though when a provision exists whereupon everyone can trust, that no matter what, I will have access to anything I require to sustain myself in this world and lead a life in dignity, fear is immediately out of the picture, and so is greed.
Therefore one can see that such forms of greed will disappear as trust gets established and people realize there is no more need for such behavior.
So, money can actually be used as a key to change the human experience on earth, where one can walk the streets without fear of being robbed and where one can actually start trusting each other.
Politics and Media in an Equal Money System
In an Equal Money System ‘politicians’ as such will not exist – but there will be positions that need to be taken where a certain level of responsibility is required. These positions will be filled based on democratic elections – and the best way to describe such a function would be that of an ‘administrator’ rather than a ‘leader’. An important aspect of such a function is that one will only be allowed to do it for 1 term – which would be 1 or 2 years, after which a new administrator is elected to take over your function, after which one will not be allowed to pose as candidate for administrator again. This is to make sure that there is never any possibility for misuse of power – and it also makes clear where the focus must lie: on the principle, not on the personality.
Remember that in an equal Money System everyone will be supported from birth to become a fully self-responsible and effective living being. Hence there will be no requirement for leadership as it exists today – because that is in fact based on separation where the majority have abdicated their responsibility towards their reality and towards the whole world to a select group of people, to have them be responsible, and who are then given carte blanche to abuse in the name of ‘the common good’.
In an Equal Money system great responsibility will be expected from everyone – because only when taking responsibility for oneself and one’s world – can one really be an honorable being. Therefore the current system of politics and entertainment is a system that promotes dishonor, limitation and slavery. To give away one’s responsibility is an act of fear – because one is unwilling to face that self- is in fact responsible. Is it then such a mystery that in today’s world everyone blames the politicians and the elite? Blame is much easier than taking responsibility – and it also indicates that self is still unwilling to take responsibility and will divert all attention from this fact through blaming another.
In an Equal Money System such behavior will not be accepted – and all will be supported to face their inner demons and learn to take responsibility for themselves and their reality. What is currently being tested and explored within the desteniiprocess is already showing that it is possible for a being to take directive charge of themselves and their lives – and that one can learn how to stop ones self-obsessed way of existing and that it is possible to live in a way that is considerate of others as equal as self.
In an Equal Money system there will be no separation between ‘politicians’ and ‘the public’ – because everyone will simply be empowered to take responsibility wherever they can. This will in turn make the media as it currently exists obsolete because the media has mainly existed as a tool or amedium that stood in between the public and the politicians – creating an alternate reality of ‘news’.
In an Equal Money system the administrators will not have to be worried about what the media will say about them – as the media will no longer be an institution based on manipulation, gossip and profit, but instead be a collaboration of people, based on real interest and passion, on how to organize and disseminate information locally and all around the world. Within this the emphasis will be to allow for all perspectives to equally be heard and equally be accessible. This will not be done through giving everyone in fact equal access to the same technology that allows for such communication to exist. The way to do that is by giving everyone Equal Money from birth to death. No more marginalization.
In an Equal Money system a ‘politician’ will simply be a servant – a guardian of the system – who makes sure that in the first place the Equal Money System keeps running, so that everyone is at all times supported, and secondly ensures the administration of all the collective decision making processes on how the system can be improved.
Practically this means that he or she will have to administer online forums that are accessible to all and anyone. In these forums suggestions will be shared in a structured manner so that each participant is able to asses whether what is said is best for all or if it requires improvement to be able to stand as a the solution to a problem or as a viable alternative to an already existing approach. This means that there will be communication regulations one have to adhere to, to make the process as effective as possible. For instance one will have to explain the problem, why or where the current solution is not yet best for all – and how the new solution is superior to the old one in that it solves more problems and is more beneficial to all participants.
Hence one must understand that all political decisions will be made in complete openness where the process of how a decision was made can completely be traced back in all its steps.
The role of the media in this regard will be limited – as there will be no more ‘secrets’ to reveal or hidden plots to expose. Hidden politics will simply not be allowed. Everything must always immediately be shared in a public forum so that there is full transparency at all times.
If you are interested in a future where everyone has an Equal say and where all Life is Equally valued – I would say don’t wait and join us.

The Road to Freedom is Through Voting?
“The road to freedom is through voting?” – at first glance, especially when taking the context of this current system into consideration, one would probably be more likely to retort: “yeah right, my vote doesn’t count!” or “voting is useless, nothing ever changes. It’s just the same shit, different leader” etc. These are understandable responses, yet one must look at the point of:
WHY doesn’t my vote count?
WHY do I see voting as useless?
WHY doesn’t anything ever change, no matter who leads a country?
WHY does the process of voting not make me feel more free, but only more enslaved?
In these very questions are the answers that will provide insight into why the current system of voting is not effective, and how we as humanity can and must stand up to take back our one vote.
Each of these questions can be answered in one shot, with one word: self-responsibility – because the real questions that beg to be asked; the questions that we all must ask ourselves are:
WHY am I not taking self-responsibility for all that is here?
WHY have I abdicated my freedom to a ‘leader’ instead of being the leader of my own life?
WHY have I accepted and allowed myself to believe that for anything to change, someone else must do it for me, or that someone else must do it first?
WHY have I blamed others for what I alone am responsible for?
WHY have I turned a blind eye to the abuse in this world?
WHY have I not done whatever must be done to ensure all life here on this planet is able to live in freedom and dignity?
WHY have I suppressed my feelings of shame for the state of myself and this world, as a reflection of myself, and instead projected anger onto politicians/those in “power”?
WHY have I given away my freedom, my power to be the self-directive powerhouse of my life, in order to “live” a life where I must rely on others to make decision for me?
This is the type of self-investigation that is required in order to explore deeper the entire point of “WHY” so that one can come to the “HOW” to stand up and begin to take self-responsibility for ourselves, and this world, as ourselves.
Understand, politicians, and those that we perceive to be “in power” didn’t create this world all by their lonesome, obviously; it was created by each and every single one of us participating and agreeing in each and every breath we’ve breathed here to continue this system; this system where starvation, murder, apathy, torture, child trafficking, animal abuse, extreme poverty, war, corporate control over food resources, absolute atrocity, and unimaginable abuses are allowed and can be readily seen…if one dares.
There is no excuse.
We are co-creators in all that we do, whether that be in perpetuating this current money system which is clearly not best for all, or whether that be in providing solutions that will ensure all are cared for and given unconditionally the ability to enjoy and move themselves freely in this one life.
Therefore, once we see/realize/understand that it will take each one of us standing up within ourselves as “one man, one vote” we will be able to simply do what must be done – it won’t exactly be “simple” – no – but that decision that self makes, will be in one simple moment of breath; one moment of an absolute commitment to stand within the statement:
“NO MORE WILL I ALLOW THIS WORLD – MY WORLD – TO BE RAVAGED BY POWER AND GREED.
NO MORE WILL I ALLOW MY WORLD TO BE ANYTHING OTHER THAN A PLACE THAT IS BEST FOR ALL LIFE, AS I SEE CLEARLY THAT I AM ALL LIFE THAT IS HERE – ONE AND EQUAL.
THEREFORE, TILL HERE NO FURTHER I STAND, AND WILL NOT STOP STANDING, UNTIL A WORLD OF DIGNITY FOR ALL IS HERE, IN FACT”
So, it’s not a point of trying to ‘go against’ anything; it’s not a point of blaming anything, resisting anything, or dropping out of anything – as that is not a sustainable solution because it is only self fighting against self from a starting point of an energetic reaction, which will eventually burn out. We’ve seen this happen throughout history. This way of so-called ”change” is still an abdication of self-responsibility.
The point is to work with what is here. Thus, we use the democratic systems that are already in place – yes, the word “democracy” has been abused extensively. Yet, who has abused this word? Each of us has. Thus, we must redefine democracy by/through taking back our power, our self-responsibility, to vote – and to vote for that which is best for ALL.
To believe that we can just vote – just push a button and pull a lever – and then our responsibility as a human being living in a democratic system is done, is precisely why we have a world as we do today.
Again, we must use what is here to change what is here.
Before an Equal Money System will be implemented, the Basic Income Grant (BIG) will be voted in. BIG, which is a system that has already been, and is currently being tested in Africa, Germany, and the United States, includes these primary points:
• provide everyone with a minimum level of income,
• enable the nation’s poorest households to better meet their basic needs,
• stimulate equitable economic development,
• promote family and community stability, and
• affirm and support the inherent dignity of all.
So, once BIG is in place, and a good deal of financial, emotional, and physical weight/burden that has crippled so many is lifted, we will begin to see that an Equal Money System is the next common sense point, as it is indeed what is best for all.
To be clear, both BIG as well as an Equal Money System will only be seen/understood through each of us walking “the road to freedom” through a process of self-realization in regards to what it is to be an effective, self-responsible, caring being who is able to be trusted with/as Life. The point of “BEING the change we want to see in this world” is relevant here, as that is indeed what we must do, because if we take a proper look at history, we will see clearly that change through any other means is not actual change that is lasting, but is change that exists as a mirage for a moment, until the same abuse that was only dormant reappears with an even greater vigor for destruction.
In each moment of breath we are casting our vote. We are either voting for Life, as what is best for all, by/through standing for a solution that will ensure freedom and dignity, or we are voting for our own limitations; we are voting for a system where God is money and the perception that there is nothing that can be done about it – we are then thus voting for our demise.
So, ask yourself:
What I am voting for in this very moment?
Will my one vote in this moment set me, and this world as myself, free?
Will my one vote in this moment further enslave me, and this world – as me?
