Medical Medium: What Your Brain Really Wants When You Crave Dairy, Caffeine & Junk

Our cravings for all things sweet stem from the organs needing one thing.

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    When we are craving things like caffeine in the morning our body is really asking for bioavailable glucose or fruit. Fruit is the most natural food a human can eat.

  • Reflect On:

    How often do you use caffeine in the morning to wake you up? Why not try smoothies for a week instead and see what happens?

Last year I stumbled upon the work of a man known as the ‘Medical Medium,’ and my life changed.

His name is Anthony William, and his information about food and chronic disease is taking the globe by storm.

But there is something unique about Anthony.

He isn’t your average health guru—the one with washboard abs and a Chiclet smile that promises you the moon. He doesn’t have an academic background, and he doesn’t source his information from scientific studies.

If you’re already thinking it’s time to stop reading, have patience, because there is a twist to William’s story that might spark your interest, and if you’re suffering from any disease, disorder, or any uncomfortable mystery symptom that conventional medicine hasn’t been able to help you with, it’s highly likely the Medical Medium will have your answer.

Anthony’s story

Anthony William, the ‘Medical Medium’.

During a family dinner when Anthony was four years old, he heard a voice that identified itself as, “the spirit of the most high.” The spirit told Anthony to announce to the family that his grandmother had lung cancer. In his book, Life Changing Foods, Anthony explains that he didn’t even know what the term ‘cancer’ meant. But with enough coaxing, he relayed the news to his grandmother, and medical testing soon confirmed what he had been told was true.

Thus began his journey of what was to become a lifelong gift. But as Anthony explains, in his early years he never saw it as a gift. He writes in his book that he wanted to be a kid like all of his friends, yet no matter where he turned, spirit would not let up. The spirit Anthony communicated with was always in his ear, filling him in on the health status of everyone around him.

He had to learn how to do visual scans of people, he says, like supercharged MRI scans that reveal blockages, infections, trouble areas, past problems, and even soul fractures. This, Anthony explains, means he always zeros in on suffering.

When eventually he accepted his duty, he came to the stark realization that suffering was far more rampant than what we even see on the news. “There is a hidden epidemic of people dealing with extreme fatigue, brain fog, pain, dizziness, and more, and they don’t know why,” he writes in Life Changing Foods. 

“There are also people who get dire diagnoses and lose all hope in life. Far too often, those who are ill go on suffering for years without answers…my job is to tell the truth, to give people the answers medical science hasn’t discovered yet.”

As he explains, his books don’t contain “citations or mentions of scientific studies.” All of his information is relayed directly from a higher source of knowledge, a source of the purest compassion for human suffering.

Medical science is missing the answers we seek

Modern medicine is failing hundreds of millions of people by labeling their suffering as a ‘mystery illness’. Does the Medical Medium have the answers we are seeking?

Anthony isn’t the first to say that modern medicine is in shambles.

“What happens if you type, ‘what causes Alzheimer’s disease?’ into the web?” he says. “You’ll get a virtual smorgasbord of hits. Some sites will say it’s unknown, others will list possible causes and risk factors, and a few will offer management tools. None will redirect you to the right results for alternate questions like, ‘why are we losing our loved ones to this ruthless disease?'”

William states that he means no disrespect to science or the countless healthcare professionals who fight every day for their patients. “I have nothing but deep admiration of the practice of medicine and other healing arts. I’m all for science. Spirit simply wants me to make you aware that something’s missing in what science has discovered so far.”

He says that the 200 million people in America who are sick with mystery symptoms are evidence of this.

“The mother who is in bed without any answers, too fatigued to look after her children, and at her wit’s end wondering how to get better…ask her if medical science has come up with all the answers yet.”

And the truth is, he says, that on top of the stress and nonstop pace of life today, we’re up against a pernicious set of pollutants and pathogens that he calls the ‘Unforgiving Four’. And those are: radiation, toxic heavy metals, viruses, and DDT. 

William says that Spirit is our security team, and it is his responsibility to share the advanced information that will help us safeguard ourselves, our children, and our children’s children.

“These are lessons of a new era, secrets that should never have been secrets. It’s time to tap into the wisdom that should have been yours all along.”

Food is the new frontier

Anthony William’s book, ‘Life Changing Foods,’ is a simple yet powerful resource for healing chronic illness and learning the incredible power of fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs, and wild foods.

Anthony states that even though we are constantly bombarded with the toxic Unforgiving Four pollutants on the daily, there is an antidote right before our eyes. He calls them the ‘holy four food groups’. They are: Fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, and wild foods.

He says these four food groups are the sacred assistance granted to us to make it through life here. “These are the answers for humanity. These are what will save us.”

The answer is that simple.

Bringing more fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, and wild foods into our lives will heal us beyond our wildest imagination. If we want to stave off illness, says William, we must be proactive and embrace the medicinal power of these life-changing foods.

This isn’t to say we can’t eat other foods, he says, but the more of these foods we incorporate into our lives and the less meat and processed foods we eat, the faster we will heal and transform our health in ways we never thought possible.

Interpreting Cravings

Anthony says that our cravings have their own language, and that we have to learn how to interpret them.

“Our minds and bodies have been conditioned by years of advertisements, misinformation, social eating situations, and less-than-healthy snacks and meals. Usually, cravings have much more to do with what’s going on emotionally at a given point in time than what would be beneficial for us to eat.”

Each food in the holy four group has their own physical, emotional, and spiritual benefit to help soothe the underlying cause of our cravings.

What Sugar Cravings Really Mean & The Need For Caffeine

A yearning for sweets is one of the most common cravings. First thing in the morning, during an afternoon slump, or after upsetting news, we often reach for a pastry filled with cream and sugar, a candy bar, or pizza.

In this case, the craving is communicating something specific biologically: your brain wants sugar. We’re trained to think sugar is bad, but natural, unadulterated sugar from whole plant foods is key for brain function.

Our body relies on the brain and liver maintaining proper reserves of glucose. These glucose reserves provide vital functions such as stabilizing blood sugar levels when you go too long between meals and powering the brain through mental processing and emotional upheaval.

With the amount of emotional stress and neurotoxins causing electrical override in the brain, we need two to three times as much sugar than we would normally need.

The bioavailable glucose and fructose in the holy four foods is the top fuel to help you meet the challenges of the day. These natural sugars should not be feared. They are a travel band of potent phytochemicals that help fight and flush out the Unforgiving Four, he writes in his book.

William states that even our cravings for dairy are sugar cravings; the sugar content in dairy, called lactose, is very high. But dairy is also ridden with fat, and the combination of sugar and fat can ruin our insulin-regulating bodily mechanisms.

“True brain foods like dates, figs, melons, grapes, citrus, raw honey, and smoothies with coconut water will give your body what it’s really asking for when you crave sugar.”

We associate caffeine in the morning with a boost of energy to wake us up and get us on with our day. But what our brain really craves is bioavailable glucose. If you rely on caffeine regularly, Anthony says that replacing it with fresh, juicy fruits will give you exactly what you need to wake up your brain.

Cravings During Detoxing

As we add more produce to our diet, our body begins to rid itself of the pathogens, heavy metals, viral by-products, radiation, and chemicals we’ve accumulated over the years.

Eating more of these foods and less processed foods could trigger very valid feelings of loss as we distance ourselves from unhealthy food choices that glimmer with nostalgia, says William. Going for a gooey date instead of that pizza will reward us in the long term, but not because we need to prove ourself morally.

It’s because when feel a very specific craving for a food we know doesn’t serve us, our cells are releasing old toxins from that very food we once ate. As the toxins release, it can feel like a bubble bursting in our consciousness, releasing any emotions that we were using the food to stuff down when we ate it.

An intense craving during detoxing means our body is finally getting a chance to rid itself of all that old gunk. The last thing we want to do is interrupt that process. If we can find a way to ride the waves of detox cravings, we will find ourselves a renewed person afterwards.

If we give into the craving, we are cutting ourselves off from healing and enlightenment. The emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects of your being are infinitely interconnected, William reminds us.

Rising up from the cravings

Anthony William’s simple whole-food protocol is changing lives around the world.

Planning meals ahead of time, being stocked up on fruits, vegetables and herbs, and keeping healthy snacks with you at all times will be your saving grace moving forward.

As cravings arise, it’s important to ask ourselves, ‘what’s it really saying?’ If there’s an emotional or spiritual need that we can identify, there is a fruit or vegetable that can assist in that specific need. Anthony’s book, Life Changing Foods, is an incredible resource for this, and I would highly recommend having a copy in your home.

It makes for great conversation among friends and family, and it will be the knowledge you use as your protection against the slew of toxins and pollutants we are constantly surrounded by in today’s world. It may even be the very thing that saves a loved one’s life in a time of crisis.

At the very least, Anthony’s information is a reminder of the simplicity of healing, and the hidden powers that fruits and vegetables contain. It re-establishes a relationship with food that for many has been lost or damaged—a relationship that may be the most important piece missing in living a life of health and happiness.

Association of American Physicians & Surgeons Sues Rep. Adam Schiff For “Censoring Vaccine Debate”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Association of American Physicians & Surgeons are suing Rep. Adam Schiff for "censoring vaccine debate."

  • Reflect On:

    Should information that creates and generates concern among the population about vaccines and vaccine safety be censored, even if it's factual and not actually 'fake news?'

Vaccines are a hot topic right now, and vaccine hesitancy is growing and quickly gaining momentum. The reality of vaccine hesitancy is no longer a secret, as many studies on the matter have been published. And it is no longer simply among concerned parents. This study published in the journal EbioMedicine discusses how practitioners in France are becoming increasingly hesitant to prescribe some controversial vaccines to their patients.

The World Health Organization believes vaccine hesitancy is one of the biggest threats to global health security. Professor Heidi Larson, a Professor of Anthropology and the Risk and Decision Scientist Director at the Vaccine Confidence Project, was one of many academics to speak at the World Health Organization’s recent Global Vaccine Safety Summit, where she explained why this is being considered a major problem:

The other thing that’s a trend, and an issue, is not just confidence in providers but confidence of health care providers. We have a very wobbly health professional frontline that is starting to question vaccines and the safety of vaccines. That’s a huge problem, because to this day any study I’ve seen–and we’re constantly looking on any studies in this space–still, the most trusted person on any study I’ve seen globally is the health care provider. And if we lose that, we’re in trouble.

Dissenting Professionals, Conflicting Statements

This type of hesitancy among health professionals has begun to spawn organizations looking for answers to their questions. ‘The Physicians for Informed Consent’ is one of multiple examples. It’s promising that doctors, scientists and health safety advocates that have come together to share resources about vaccines, and more importantly voice concerns that they have about certain vaccines and their safety.

At the summit, Dr. Martin Howell Friede, Coordinator of Initiative For Vaccine Research at the World Health Organization, brought up the issue of adjuvants, noting some of the problems with using adjuvants that do not have a proven track record of safety. Many people at the conference also emphasized the need for more safety testing and studies to address the concerns that are being made by vaccine safety advocates. Personally, I think this is encouraging. Science should never cease to question, and who wouldn’t want more safety studies and testing on medications that are being administered worldwide?

As this issue becomes more scrutinized by the public as well as health care professionals, more and more conflicting statements made by high-ranking health authorities are being uncovered, which in themselves may lead to a breakdown of confidence in vaccines. For example, Soumya Swaminathan, MD and Chief Scientist at the World Health Organization, stated at the conference,

I don’t think we can overemphasize the fact that we really don’t have very good safety monitoring systems in many countries and this adds to the miscommunication and the misapprehensions, because we’re not able to give clear cut answers when people ask questions about deaths that have occurred due to particular vaccines… One should be able to give a very factual account of what exactly is happening, what the cause of deaths are, but in most cases there’s some obfuscation at that level and therefore there’s less and less trust then in the system.

Prior to this statement, the WHO released a promotional video just days before the conference began, where Dr. Swaminathan contradicted her statement above, saying “we have vaccine safety systems, robust vaccine safety systems.”

It would be nice to have answers as to why the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act has paid close to 4 billion dollars to families of vaccine injured children, and what that says about these ‘safety systems’ she is talking about. Clearly, there seems to be a need to make our vaccines safer and more effective. Personally, I believe forced vaccination to be quite unethical given the fact that so many questions remain unanswered.

Association of American Physicians & Surgeons Sue Rep. Adam Schiff

The growing vaccine hesitancy has led the pharmaceutical industry and its supporters to a dangerous strategy: mass censorship. For those of you who haven’t heard, politicians and social media outlets are taking action steps to censor information about vaccines that is not aligned with the industry and its regulatory ‘arm,’ the CDC. In other words, just about anyone who is even questioning vaccine safety, let alone providing evidence that vaccines are not safe, is liable to be discredited, de-monitized, or de-platformed from social media.

Leading the charge is Congressman Adam Schiff, an advocate of vaccine safety and friend of the pharmaceutical industry, who has used his power and influence to immediately strengthen censorship efforts. His moves have been seen as unfair, unethical, and even illegal. In fact, on Jan 15, 2020, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, along with Katarina Verrelli, on behalf of herself and others who seek access to vaccine information, filed suit against Adam Schiff in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Plaintiffs allege that Defendant Schiff has abused government power and infringed on their free-speech rights.

Here’s how the association characterizes the situation:

Who appointed Congressman Adam Schiff as Censor-in-Chief?” asks AAPS General Counsel.  “No one did, and he should not be misusing his position to censor speech on the internet.”

In February and March 2019, Rep. Schiff contacted Google, Facebook, and Amazon, to encourage them to de-platform or discredit what Schiff asserted to be inaccurate information on vaccines. He then posted the letters and press release on the House.gov website.

Within 24 hours of Schiff’s letter to Amazon dated Mar 1, 2019, Amazon removed the popular videos Vaxxed and Shoot ’Em Up: the Truth About Vaccines from its platform for streaming videos, depriving members of the public of convenient access.

Under a policy announced in May 2019, Twitter includes a pro-government disclaimer placed above search results for an AAPS article on vaccine mandates: “Know the Facts. To make sure you get the best information on vaccination, resources are available from the US Department of Health and Human Services.” The implication of this disclaimer is that if information is not on a government website, then it is somehow less credible.

On Facebook, a search for an AAPS article on vaccines, which previously would lead directly to the AAPS article, now produces search results containing links to the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Institutes of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Visits to the AAPS website have declined significantly since March 2019, both in absolute terms and relative to the decline that would result from a story’s losing its recency.

“The internet is supposed to provide free access to information to people of different opinions,” stated AAPS Executive Director, Jane Orient, M.D.

Dr. Orient continues, “AAPS is not ‘anti-vaccine,’ but rather supports informed consent, based on an understanding of the full range of medical, legal, and economic considerations relevant to vaccination and any other medical intervention, which inevitably involves risks as well as benefits.”

AAPS argues in the complaint against Rep. Schiff: “The First Amendment protects the rights of free speech and association. Included within the right of free speech is a right to receive information from willing speakers. Under the First Amendment, Americans have the right to hear all sides of every issue and to make their own judgments about those issues without government interference or limitations. Content-based restrictions on speech are presumptively unconstitutional, and courts analyze such restrictions under strict scrutiny.”

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) is a national organization representing physicians in all specialties since 1943.

The Takeaway

The terms “anti vax” and “pro vax” are really not serving in the best interest of the collective. All they do is divide people when in reality, all of us want the same thing, healthy children, and effective and safe medications if we are going to use them. With all of the concerns that are still being made about vaccines, questioning vaccine safety should not be a problem and in fact, should be welcomed by everybody. Forcing mandatory vaccination policy and censoring information on vaccines, in my opinion, seems to be quite tyrannical and immoral at this stage. I may have a different opinion if vaccines were 100 percent safe and effective for everybody, but they’re not.

Togo, West Africa Added To A Growing List of Countries That Are Banning Glyphosate

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Togo, a country in West Africa has decided to ban the use of toxic chemical pesticide, glyphosate because of growing health and environmental concerns.

  • Reflect On:

    Togo joins 20 other countries who have decided to ban this pesticide, do you think your country will ever do the same?

Recently, a country in West Africa, Togo has prohibited the ‘import, market or use of glyphosate and any other product containing it.’ This decision was finalized in December of last year by the Minister of Agriculture, Animal Production and Fisheries, Noel Kouerta Bataka.

If you are unfamiliar with glyphosate, it is a chemical pesticide made by none other than agricultural giant, Monsanto, Bayer. Glyphosate can be found in RoundUp and used on crops that have been genetically engineered specifically to resist its toxicity, allowing farmers to kill the weeds and pests without killing their crops. The problem is, it is extremely toxic not only for the consumer of products containing it, but for the land and soil as well where it is grown.

There have been numerous studies, many of which CE has reported on that link it to cancer, liver disease, autism, birth defects, brain damage and more.

“It is commonly believed that Roundup is among the safest pesticides… Despite its reputation, Roundup was by far the most toxic among the herbicides and insecticides tested. This inconsistency between scientific fact and industrial claim may be attributed to huge economic interests, which have been found to falsify health risk assessments and delay health policy decisions.” – R. Mesnage (et al., Biomed Research International, Volume 2014 (2014), article ID 179691)

After 2 years of political discussions in Togo, regarding the worlds most popular herbicide, many are celebrating the decision that was finally made to have it outright banned. Bataka has allowed a 12-month moratorium for all of the current glyphosate supplies to be either used or destroyed.

Ban Of Glyphosate Around The World

As awareness grows regarding the health concerns of glyphosate, so does government level support worldwide. Not only has Key West, Los Angeles, Miami and The University of California banned or restricted the use of this toxic chemical so, have 20 countries around the world. These countries are,

  • In Africa — Malawi and Togo.
  • In Asia — Thailand, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar.
  • In Central America — Bermuda, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Costa Rica
  • In Europe — Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, The Netherlands

So we still have yet to see bans in Canada, United States, Mexico and many other countries, but hopefully stories such as these will keep the awareness and momentum going and help others to see that this toxic chemical pesticide should not be anywhere near the food we are eating or on our precious Mother Earth.

It’s a big problem, and it’s now entered into our food supply.

How To Avoid Glyphosate

One might believe that they simply have to avoid genetically engineered foods to avoid glyphosate, and while that is a good start, unfortunately it’s not that black and white. There are many non-GMO foods that are still sprayed with this chemical and thus have high concentrations of it.

In reality your best bet would be to grow all of your own fruits, vegetables and even nuts, but unfortunately in this day and age this is not very plausible for everyone.

The foods that are highest in glyphosate are: soy, wheat, almonds, peas, beetroot (including beet sugar), carrots, sweet potatoes, quinoa, peas, tea, meat and dairy, corn and oats. However, many other unsuspecting foods have also have tested positive for high levels of glyphosate including many fruits and berries such as: apples, apricots, cherries, grapefruit, grapes (wine as well), lemons, olives, peaches, pears and more.

To avoid glyphosate altogether sticking to an all-organic diet is necessary. If this is an obstacle for you, consider locally grown produce where you can talk directly with the farmers about their growing practices. Many farmers grow organically , but cannot afford to obtain the organic certification. You can also wash your produce in baking soda and vinegar click HERE for instructions.

Final Thoughts

While it may seem hopeless at times to even try to avoid environmental toxins like glyphosate, we have to remember that the more we do, and the more we put our money where are mouths are and vote with our dollars, the less these chemicals will be used. We have already seen many big brands step away from using GMO ingredients because of consumer demand, so it may not be as far off as you think.

As countries like Togo step forward and do what is right for their citizens and the planet, awareness will continue to grow and it will assist others in seeing the truth about these chemicals and inspire others to make a change as well. We have more power than we realize and anything can change, with enough awareness.

Let’s Contemplate A Future Without Money & How It 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.
