People for People
A Book Written for People Interested in Creating a World for People
Introduction to People for People
~“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.”
Robert Kennedy, U.S. Attorney General and Adviser, 1925-1968 ~
Perhaps I am not the person to write this, as I have no doctorate in political science and no medical education. However I am not writing from that perspective. I am writing from the perspective of an American citizen living in America with other people.
Though I grew up somewhat internationally and English was not always my first language, I am a U.S. citizen. And seemingly many of us are international by the very fact that we are Americans.
Moreover as I write this, there may be another who is writing much the same thing. And as they write yet another person is writing something similar again… and so forth.
Then these manuscripts will find their way to agents and blogs and one, perhaps two, will find publishers or small time movie producers.
Subsequently there will be those few of us who will read this, or that other manuscript. In the beginning fewer still, who feel that perhaps there is something to the words that call out to us the people of this country and the people of the world to develop a civilization on this earth that is more suitable for humans?
Not just a western culture that exists for the ever-expanding world banks, wars and corporations of this or that cheep… no, I can’t write that… so we will call it… stuff.
Until we have the hundredth-monkey effect and move forward into another age and time where people will have room to be happy in the environment of our western economic system and create true value, once again, in our own country. Perhaps making that, the history of our generation.
Apparently the approach we have now (and have had over the last forty years or so) serves only about one percent of our population. The incredibly wealthy and powerful, the wealthy that rule the banking establishments of the world and own around forty-five percent of America’s assets, this creating power perhaps already more dangerous than a warhead in the evildoer’s hand.
Consequently it seems we are in desperate need of change.
We must acknowledge that we every-day people, people with integrity, interest in the environment, our children and a future for this planet and each other, will most likely never be in that one percent category of the powerful and wealthy of this country.
We must collectively face this truth!
As more and more people in our country suffer under foreclosure, unemployment, depression, addiction and obesity, we need to look beyond our selves, bodies and spirit and seek for the root causes of our difficulties, hopefully finding solutions that those in power will most likely NEVER be giving to the people of this country or the world.
In addition, every day our planet is becoming more and more polluted, mostly from this same one percent of our population, as they deforest our world’s jungles and foul our oceans.
Remember that we humans need trees, for trees take up carbon dioxide that together with water create oxygen and organic compounds (plant life/food) on our earth by photosynthesis, which can in turn be breathed in and out by us humans and turned into water and CO2 (carbon dioxide) again.
But trees and large old growth forests that can be cut down in hours are not replaced over night and fish do not swim in oily waters. Subsequently what do we humans do when there is nothing left to destroy?
Yet perhaps by exploring our economic situation, as I have tried to do in the first five chapters of this book and moving through the possible origin of our epidemics into the last five chapters of potential solutions and healing, this book can be a contribution to finding a different course for the remaining ninety-nine percent of our population to travel on.
Let us, as the people in this country vote and choose with awareness of what it is we really want, not what is being sold to us by our corporate leaders.
Hopefully helping us find strength and a path of success towards a western economic system that will serve us, the everyday people of this country, too.
We, the collective people of the United States of America can stop relinquishing our power. For as humans we seek, and our curiosity has survived even our formal western education, losing a home, our sense of security, our health, divorce and the personal degradation of the endless lies we are served day for day by those that live off of selling us… stuff.
For corporations need us not to be people, not really even human, but consumers. AKA a Person
~ We are raised and brought up in a western economic system that depends on people to be dependent…~
~ Western financial markets depend on a growing amount of consumers to sustain them…~
3.) Deteriorating Health
~Western medical industries thrive on the sick and dependent…~
~ Western corporations live off consumers’ addictions; shopping, television and video games, processed-food, ill health and need of medication and financial aid… always we return to “people” supporting the corporation for the corporation to expand…~
~ A growing epidemic in western and westernizing economies seems to be depression, creating dependency on corporate healthcare or support that is often nonexistent… but it is perhaps a natural instinct that sets in when we have experienced death and loss, trauma, divorce, disappointment, betrayal, insecurity, fear, deprivation…~
6.) Realization Reality
~ Recognizing and naming dependency… how it comes to be in our lives…and how we can move away from it…~
7.) Stepping into Change
~ Finding the strength and discipline to manage our own life, needs, desires and finances…~
8.) Believing in Yourself
~ Finding a reality that is closer to the truth concerning our own health, bodies, minds and lifestyles…~
9.) Recapturing your Dream
~ Taking the steps to live and do what we want… releasing addiction and dependency on all levels…~
10.) Dissolving Patterns of Depression
~ By fulfilling personal needs and living our own life, not the dependent life we were taught to live…~
