8 Reasons Why I Have Hope For Our World & You Should Too

Published

on

It’s hard to deny that things are becoming increasingly challenging here on Earth. Many of us are struggling through economic hardships comparable to that of the great depression, while others live every day in fear for their life as the place that they call home is now an active war zone. No matter the intensity of your individual story, we all face challenges and thanks to the mainstream media beast we are all also constantly thrust with negative story after negative story -with the occasional irrelevant pop culture distraction tossed in every couple of minutes.

Despite this, I still choose to stand on the glass is half full side of the spectrum. I strongly believe that deep down we are all hard wired to not only survive and thrive here on planet Earth, but also to come together and recognize the interconnectedness that we all share. Here are 8 reasons why I have hope in the world and I believe that you should too:

1. Our Charitable Donations

Despite a great number of our financial situations worsening year by year, the amount that we globally donate to recognized charitable organizations that we believe in continues to grow. According to charitynavigator.org, total giving in 2013 was $335.17 billion, an increase of 4.4% from 2012 and the fourth straight year that the total has risen from that of the previous. What’s even more remarkable is that 72% of that came from individuals, and only 5% came from corporate giving accounts. This shows me that no matter how difficult things become we still do everything we can to support what we believe in.

2. Increase In Vocal Activists

Whether it be an otherwise unknown 15-year-old girl taking a powerful stance against GMOs, or a globally recognized celebrity speaking as a UN messenger of peace at the 2014 climate summit, more and more people are vocally standing for what they believe in. The issues of the world are becoming increasingly apparent that they need to truly be solved and thanks to these daring voices they are quickly becoming impossible to ignore. Whether or not you personally agree with the message each of these activists are delivering it’s still empowering to see their willingness to vocalize it passionately.

3. Growth In Alternative Media

Flashback just a couple of years and websites -such as our own -were something that primarily served a niche market, with a number of others regularly following the content, but refusing to admit to it publicly. Today, millions upon millions of people are openly reading, sharing, liking, retweeting and connecting with one another through alternative media sources -sources that inspire people to think outside of the box and challenge the mainstream. Being on the backend of one of these resources, I can honestly say that it truly feels like we are moving towards a global tipping point where awareness will force the hand of those in power to fully disclose everything.

4. Number Of Protests & Revolutions Worldwide

To many, the idea of a protest or revolution may seem scary, and understandably so as the mainstream media does a pretty damn good job at making them seem that way. But what is a protest at its core? A group of people coming together to stand for something that they believe in, in hopes of building enough awareness to inspire and create lasting change. Sounds pretty awesome to me, and if we apply these 5 Things That Can Change The Way We Protest, I really think that they can be used to instigate even more change than they already have. To better get a grasp of the power in protesting I encourage you to either google the March Against Monsanto, or to read this piece on the 10 Protests That Changed The World.

5. Amazing Projects Already Underway

Even though most of us go through our daily lives based on the status quo, there are an increasing number of individuals and groups that have come together to build awareness and be a living example of the change they wish to see. Individuals such as Kip Anderson, who documented his journey to uncover the most destructive industry facing the planet today in his film Cowspiracy. Groups such as The Valhalla Movement, who are dedicated to inspiring sustainability and self-reliance through collaborative action. No matter their focus, each of these individuals/groups are actively doing what they are passionate about, rather than waiting for the world to give them support or “permission.”

6. Growth & Limitless Potential Of Alternative Energy

Alternative energy sources are a regularly occurring subject here at Collective Evolution and for good reason, the vast majority of us have awoken to the reality that we cannot continue to power our lives with the traditional methods we currently rely upon. In response to this, several globally accepted alternatives, such as solar power, continue to rapidly grow with a solar system being installed an average of every 4 minutes in 2013 by comparison to every 80 minutes in 2006. (source) But solar energy is just the tip of the iceberg with free energy devices being the ever-growing and exciting base -for more information on the potential of free energy read any of the following: Link 1, Link 2, Link 3.

7. Our Response In Times Of Need

Whether it be something as catastrophic as Hurricane Katrina was on the city of New Orleans or something as local as a child getting hurt while riding their bike, the vast majority of us seem to have an innate desire to help in any way that we can. Even though some of us may suppress this, we often can’t help but at the very least feel empathetic for the individual(s) dealing with hardship. I like to look at the incredible rescue, support and rebuild efforts that are happening daily worldwide as a bright glimmer of hope and an even brighter glimmer of the potential we have to come together and right this ship called Earth.

8. We All Cry

This may seem like a very sappy ending to an otherwise hopefully empowering list, but for me one of the greatest symbols of hope in this world is that we all cry. Yes, many of us suppress this as well -due in large part to beliefs such as “men don’t cry” or “crying is for the weak” -but the truth is we all have tears within us. Tears that when shed, reveal not only how human we can all be, but also how interconnected we all are. Whether all it takes is a touching story/movie to get your waterworks going, the passing of a close friend or relative or a joyous moment such as the birth of a child we all have a breaking point. This breaking point shows me that no matter how tough our skin may be on the outside, when push comes to shove we all have a softer side that is ready to be a part of fixing this world.

CDC May Officially Downgrade COVID From An ‘Epidemic’ Due To Remarkably Low Death Rate

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The CDC is on the edge of downgrading COVID-19 from a 'pandemic' due to very low death rates. As time has gone on, hysteria over COVID-19 has not been backed by emerging data.

  • Reflect On:

    Has COVID-19 been another catalyst for humanity to begin questioning why we trust the sources we do? Is it time for us to activate self-responsibility and begin setting aside the parent-child relationship we have with government?

What Happened: The COVID-19 death rate across the US has now been confirmed to be so low that it’s on the edge of no longer being qualified as a pandemic, and therefore the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is poised to soon stop calling the virus an “epidemic.” The primary reason why confirmed death rates are so low is due to extreme amounts of testing in the United States. Although most outside the box thinking people and health professionals knew a couple weeks in that the death rate was extremely low, it has taken up until now for the CDC to admit to this position.

“Based on death certificate data, the percentage of deaths attributed to pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19 (PIC) decreased from 9.0% during week 25 to 5.9% during week 26, representing the tenth week of a declining percentage of deaths due to PIC,” the agency wrote on its website.

Media and government continue to report on ‘new cases’ every single day as testing continues. The challenging part is, they are not sharing how many of these cases are symptomatic or result in any form of hospitalization. Therefore, simply reporting on how many new confirmed cases there are is doing nothing but rile the public up into fear for no reason. The vast majority of “confirmed cases” are people who have no symptoms and have no idea they even had antibodies for the virus. Not to mention the likely inaccuracy of COVID testing.

Why it matters: As many outside mainstream consensus spoke about since late February, testing results show that more people have likely contracted COVID-19 than testing data reflects. This means even way back then, the mortality rate for COVID-19 was lower than any of the extreme estimates that came out of government and health agencies. All of which have been proven wrong along the way.

Those who have questioned the narrative, like us here at CE, have had to deal with shadow banning on social media, fact checking fallacies, and demonetization as a result of reporting on the facts instead of the hysteria. The sad part is, everything we have reported on and suggested would soon happen did and yet we have been constantly ‘punished’ for it. Death rates were not as high as thought, testing is not accurate, and this virus is not near as serious as it’s being made out to be – point blank, there was no need for a lockdown.

But given there was a lockdown, we can look to either complete government incompetency or the fact that there is likely much more going on here behind the scenes than many people want to admit to. Further to that, and going deeper, we can ask how this lockdown and entire virus situation was actually serving the collective to see what’s really going on in our world and why it might be time to bring about some BIG change.

Remember, it’s not the people vs. the deep state, they simply play a role in pushing the evolution of consciousness. I cover this in great detail here.

The Takeaway: More statistics and events are coming to the surface showing that we have been misled greatly about the recent ‘pandemic’, and even though many people in alternative media and alternative health said since day 1 that this was fishy and made no sense, mainstream media and government continued on.

How is it that people with so few resources and access knew the truth before massive and ‘trusted’ sources did? Was it another catalyst for humanity to begin questioning why they trust these sources? Was it another catalyst for people to begin listening to well backed and grounded ‘alternative’ or ‘conspiracy’ ideas as they consistently turn out to be true?

Given the fact our infrastructures collapsed so quickly, is it an opportunity for us to re-imagine our world? Re-imagine what’s possible and truly question the type of world we wish to live in? Is it time for us to activate self responsibility and begin setting aside the parent-child relationship we have with government?

It’s all been a catalyst.

How A Future Without Money Would Work

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Several brave thinkers, including Jacque Fresco of the Venus Project and Colin Turner of the Free World Charter, have proposed ways in which a future society could thrive if we eliminated money and trade and instead built a resource-based economy.

  • Reflect On:

    The first step in any new paradigm is believing it's possible. Do you believe humanity could not only survive but thrive in a money-free world? What would it look like?

“For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. By craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.”–1 Timothy 6:10

While it is still not commonly held in mainstream discourse that humanity could survive and even thrive without some form of monetary exchange, more and more people that are starting to trace their general discontent about contemporary society to its source are finding money and profit motive at the root of it.

Perhaps the first of the knee-jerk reactions some people might have to the idea of shifting into a money-free system is the sinking feeling of watching their hard-earned wealth evaporate into nothingness, which they might equate with abject poverty. We are so programmed to equate money with abundance that we don’t understand what abundance truly is.

At the heart of it our ‘net’ abundance is shared, and is grounded in the resources available in nature on the planet. The aggregate of these natural resources not only represents our potential abundance but our very survival. A money system grants ownership to many of these resources, and makes it exponentially easier for those with abundance to get more abundance at the expense of the vast majority of people. A money system is, in some ways, antithetical to the proper management and distribution of these resources. Without money, each individual would naturally be entitled to their share of all the resources in the world, and that would never change. But how would such a system work?

Resource-Based Economy

Jacque Fresco, founder of the Venus Project, believes that the world has reached a level of technology that will allow us to build fully self-sustaining communities all over the world which, when optimally designed, will provide not only an unimaginably high level of abundance for all its residents, but a far greater sense of shared purpose within a community. This vision is grounded in the principles of a Resource-Based Economy:

In a Resource Based Economy all goods and services are available to all people without the need for means of exchange such as money, credits, barter or any other means. For this to be achieved all resources must be declared as the common heritage of all Earth’s inhabitants. Equipped with the latest scientific and technological marvels mankind could reach extremely high productivity levels and create abundance of resources.–Venus Project website

Without profit motive, individuals within the community will naturally turn their energy towards the efficient maintenance of the infrastructure and problem-solving and innovation for the collective, as the happiness and well-being of the community is naturally equated with one’s own happiness and well-being.

In the video below is a brief introduction to Fresco’s inspiring vision of our potential future. More information. including where the Venus Project is at on their timeline, is available on their website.

No Need For Trade

Since money is nothing more than a medium of exchange, it is only in removing the convention of exchange or ‘trade’ itself that then renders money obsolete. That’s why a Resource-Based Economy proposes that ‘all resources must be declared as the common heritage of all Earth’s inhabitants.’

In his TedX talk, Colin Turner really questions the idea that ‘trade’ is the only organizational model for life on the planet, and in fact outlines the ways in which trade is actually antithetical to human abundance and well-being:

We all more or less accept trade as being the de facto way of operating our society, so much so that we even see it as some kind of universal law. But it might surprise you to know actually that trade has only existed in relatively recent years, that in 90% of our modern human history we didn’t actually trade at all, there still are no archaeological traces of trade. In these early tribal, agrarian communities what actually happened was there was an implied understanding that everyone in the tribe looked after each other. And this was how the tribes operated for perhaps the vast majority of our early human history.

So we see trade now as a very important way of doing business, and you have to say that trade works, I get what I want and you get what you want and we all go home happy. But when you actually scratch the surface a little bit more about how trade actually pans out in the real world, it’s not such a nice story. It seems to be a better theory than actually works out in practice.

For example, the most obvious case is, about 3 billion people in the world today live on $2.50 or less a day–many of them much, much less than that. Obviously they are wracked with starvation or dying of curable diseases, so, I mean, you have to ask yourself, is trade really working for them, for those people? Clearly, it isn’t.

Colin Turner is the founder of The Free World Charter, which currently has 58,611 signatories among people from 215 different countries (and would welcome yours, if you are so inclined). The charter constitutes a set of principles that really formalizes the notion that all human individuals are entitled to maintain an equal share of the Earth’s resources, but it also outlines the natural responsibilities and practices that each individual would assume in order to live optimally and harmoniously together in a money-free community and world. Here are the ten principles:

  1. The highest concern of humanity is the combined common good of all living species and biosphere.
  2. Life is precious in all its forms, and free to flourish in the combined common good.
  3. Earth’s natural resources are the birthright of all its inhabitants, and free to share in the combined common good.
  4. Every human being is an equal part of a worldwide community of humans, and a free citizen of Earth.
  5. Our community is founded on the spirit of cooperation and an understanding of nature, provided through basic education.
  6. Our community provides for all its members the necessities of a healthy, fulfilling and sustainable life, freely and without obligation.
  7. Our community respects the limits of nature and its resources, ensuring minimal consumption and waste.
  8. Our community derives its solutions and advances progress primarily through the application of logic and best available knowledge.
  9. Our community acknowledges its duty of care and compassion for members who are unable to contribute.
  10. Our community acknowledges its responsibility to maintain a diverse and sustainable biosphere for all future life to enjoy

These are certainly not the final words on which principles should truly define a future society and world free of money, but in reading them one can clearly grasp the overall essence of the kind of mindset we will need to develop and implement in our lives if we are to shift into this new paradigm.

Walking Away From A Money Economy

The shift we are looking for here is grounded in a conscious move by the individuals of this planet away from a model of competition and towards a model of cooperation. We are all quite familiar with both, as we surely have an ample amount of experience in both ways of relating to the people around us. If you could choose right now, which kind of model would you want as the basis for the entire planet?

Some might argue that the competitive/trade/money paradigm has been instrumental in getting us to make progress, especially technologically, which we may not have achieved by remaining with the cooperative tribal model. There may be some truth in this. But does it not seem that, at this time in history, most of us have had it with the debt, scarcity, and inequality that is a hallmark of the money model? Are we not hungering for more love, cooperation and shared abundance imbued in the very organizational structures we create for ourselves to live?

Understand that making this change is not as simple as going to the United Nations or other authoritative world body, as Jacque Fresco has already done. Presenting a compelling vision of a future without money to the benefit of all of humanity does not automatically mean that the world authority will implement it right away. The powers behind world authority like the UN are actually made up of those who have the most money. What we see going on in the public arena are essentially the machinations of the puppets they control.

This is nothing new. An overall system that maintains power by the few has been in place ever since money and exchange were introduced. While in the past this wealth was protected over generations and generations by certain families who were the visible ‘royalty,’ ‘noblemen’ and ‘aristocracy’ of the day, today’s world only differs in the sense that these powers are more hidden from sight, while countries maintain the illusion of having some form of ‘democracy.’

The point is that we will never be able to elicit the help of our authority if we want to abandon our current money economy. Those in authority, who at the very top own a vast percentage of the world’s resources, certainly believe they would have the most to lose if we moved to a model founded on equally-shared abundance. What we actually need to do is elicit the help of each other, energizing important movements and fostering an awakening as to how powerful we actually are as a collective. When a critical mass of us begin marching in step to a new way of life, the current authority will have no power to stop us.

The Takeaway

A money-free society and world can certainly work from the standpoint of creating abundance for everyone on the planet. What is needed is a new awareness founded on some of the natural principles discussed here. The more that individuals of the planet slowly move away from competitive money-centered practices and spend their time and energy cultivating cooperation, the more quickly we will be able to collectively walk away from a system that no longer serves us.

Dr. Fauci Says “Individual Institutions” May Make The Coronavirus Vaccine Mandatory

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Anthony Fauci recently expressed that the coronavirus vaccine will not be mandatory, but private institutions may require it.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we being forced to accept measures that we, as a collective, don't agree with? Is this really in our best interests? What will the reaction be when some institutions mandate the vaccine for adults?

What Happened: Dr. Anthony Fauci recently explained that the US “could see individual institutions mandating a vaccine.” As of now, it seems quite clear that this vaccine will not be mandatory, but what seems to be the case is that health authorities may make it mandatory to travel, and individual institutions that employ people, for example, may make it mandatory as well. Who really knows at this point. We do seem to be trending in that direction though, perhaps we won’t be if a majority of people simply don’t accept it?

Why do we always comply with that which does not resonate? Why do we give away our consciousness and allow our perception to be moulded by a small group of powerful people?

One thing is for certain, wherever a vaccine mandate pops up there will be a tremendous amount of controversy. Fauci  told CNN last month that vaccine education efforts in the US is “not going to be easy” and went on to say that “there is a general anti-science, anti-authority, anti-vaccine feeling among some people in this country – an alarmingly large percentage of people, relatively speaking.” He went on to say that “we have a lot of work to do” with regards to educating people “on the truth about vaccines.”

This type of “education” seems to be the censoring of any information, no matter how credible, that paints vaccines in a questionable light. It also seems to be complemented by a massive campaign of ridicule, as Fauci did above. How can a number of scientists and doctors who support informed consent and question vaccine safety “uneducated?”

Perhaps skepticism about vaccines is growing because people are becoming educated? Is this why we now have a digital authoritarian Orwellian fact-checker patrolling the internet? Should people not be able to examine information and evidence from other experts and decide for themselves what is instead of having a “fact-checker” it for them?

Why This Matters

When Bill Gates said that the world won’t go back to completely normal until we get a vaccine, his Instagram feed was littered with comments from people who oppose vaccines. This is the result of vaccine hesitancy, something that continues to grow among people, physicians and scientists. This point was recently emphasized at the World Health Organization’s summit on vaccine safety.  You can read more about it here.

Multiple studies suggest that this hesitancy is a result of not only faulty products that have caused injury, but also a lack of trust in pharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, multiple studies call into question vaccine safety, and the need for more appropriate safety testing. Take aluminum, for example, it’s been added to vaccines for more than 100 years simply because it’s been presumed safe. Studies have not been conducted to actually prove that it’s safe. There are still many unanswered questions with regards to where these metals end up in our body after they are injected. Studies are already showing that injected aluminum doesn’t exit the body like the aluminum we take in from food, for example, and that the substance may end up in distant organs and eventually lodged within the brain. (source)(source)(source)(source)

According to a MedAlerts search of the FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database, as of 2/5/19, the cumulative raw count of adverse events from measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines alone was: 93,929 adverse events, 1,810 disabilities, 6,902 hospitalizations, and 463 deaths. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid out approximately $4 billion to compensate families of vaccine-injured children. As astronomical as the monetary awards are, they’re even more alarming considering HHS claims that only an estimated 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).

This act has already paid 4 billion dollars to families of vaccine injured children has now been paid to families of vaccine injured makes it quite clear that vaccines are not a one size fits all product, and injuries could be happening at a far greater rate than what we have been told, as emphasized above.

These concerns aren’t even the tip of the ice-berg, and it’s a shame that, in today’s day in age, concerns raised about vaccines in a credible, scientific way are often ridiculed rather than countered in a peaceful manner. This is usually the result of mainstream media also ridiculing the idea of questioning vaccine safety.

Why are the points made by vaccine safety advocates never addressed? Why are they simply met with ridicule?

One of the biggest problems we have to day with regards to science is the politicization of it. And one of the biggest problems we have with regards to health is the amount of fraud that plagues the industry. Our federal health regulatory agencies have been completely corrupted, and there are countless amounts of examples that prove this, like the Spider Papers, among many others.

Some people have accused Fauci of this, with his connections to bill gates, the Pharmaceutical company Moderna who seems to be winning the race for the vaccine, and his position as the Director. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

The Takeaway

It’s great news that the new coronavirus vaccine will not be mandatory, but again, the idea that it could be mandatory or perhaps necessary to travel and enter into certain public places is concerning to many. To single out these individuals under the premise that unvaccinated individuals are a danger to vaccinated individuals is completely unscientific.

Is this the world we want to live in? One in which we are forced into specific measures if we want to be part of society? It’s been happening with children for a long time with regards to public schooling, are we making our way to mandatory vaccines for adults?

Are these measures for the greater good of everybody? Why does so much evidence exist showing that vaccines don’t really protect the “whole”?

At the end of the day, more people are loosing trust in federal health regulatory agencies, it’s never to late to take your power back and start thinking for yourself and doing your own research.

This is one of many ways in which the world changes, with information, awareness and transparency.
