Thank you, well said:
"We will all be able to dedicate our lives to do that which we genuinely enjoy doing and have natural skills for – or create them, since Time or money won’t be a restrain to develop new skills and explore new areas of human development - we won’t be bound to one single 9-5 job for 40 years just to have sufficient retirement funds. Instead we will be able to have a variety of professions, expand our skills and challenge each other to reach new grounds in all fields of investigation and human development since money won’t dictate what we can or can’t do during our lifetimes that we will instead realize must be devoted to supporting All Life in Equality – this means the End of all ‘Modern Day Slavery’ forevermore."
...Freedom IS possible!

read and noted on 5-9-13 thank-you for the great article and so true, but if our so called government does not get off their butts and start helping this economy to thrive once again with suitable employment all that we will have to look forward to will be living out of cardboard boxes and dumpster diving for our meals and wondering when this mess will end, but it's all up to each person to update there skills so that they can gain employment and stability and to make many positive moves in life.

America just like the rest of the world are being mislead into believing they have rights when the Zionist bought out most world governments who saw a quick buck in selling out the people by giving the Zionist control of our banks and resources. Just read the protocols of Zion and see how true it is today, this is just one of the truths out there if you care to wake up and look..

Wow Nikolas, watch out for the black helicopters. Do you think the Men in Black movies were documentaries?

I am not sure we should wait for the cardboard homeless lifestyles. After all since we keep insisting that we are the majority suffering from either austerity or plainly revolting horrific life conditions, an organized solution to end it all would be enough. At the moment we are just scared by those with the Money Till, forgetting that Money itself is just an agreement and we can agree to a different monetary system which would imply a natural organic redistribution since we are the Value of Money and we can decide how to share it. Then, whoever has been playing the Money game with our permission won't have it anymore, and it must start from there, because there is no Freedom or Equality unless All are Equally worthy and to get there we have to gain Economic Equality, that will change the game for good, for All.

There are many in America who aren't qualified to hold a job. Are you saying the government has an obligation to make sure they show up at work every day? This article is absurd. It's right up there with people having the right to have two cars in their driveways. This is way out there.....

The point that there are people who are not qualified to hold a job just shows we have a system problem, if we didn't everyone would have been able to develop themselves to their full potential while at the moment, the best Education is available only to those with Money and it is not possible to believe that the ones left at the bottom are there for faults of their own. If you are born at the bottom, this system is designed to leave you there. I live in Italy, we are reachine unheard levels of unemployment, I have seen mature men cry for being unable to find a job, which they were more than capable of doing until private interests moved production to cheaper places to maximize profits, hence as you can se, the problem must be tackled globally because when all will be of an Equal Value, there will be no place else to go to exploit people and their work and everyone will win both the right to a job and the right to a fair retribution that allows for a dignified Life. As well what you are stating Diane O. is that it is absurd to give people the right to live, this is the obvious conclusion of not recognizing the right to a job to all within a system where if you don't have money you must DIE. So, a question for you, how absurd is it to ask people to die for deliberately not providing them with the chance to access money? Because this seems pretty 'out there' to me, specifically when I consider how many do not have a job due to the fact that we allow private interest of corporations and lobbies to override the common good and as we see the common sense of the people, to the point that we come to believe that some should die so we can keep up doing what we are doing now versus finding solutions to change this system into something humane that considers Life as the Capital and all the rest in function and service of it.

Diane O., have you asked yourself how you got your job in the system? Or how you got your 'Qualification'? Was it entirely by your own creation and doing or did you happen to have certain opportunities and chances in the system you were born in that gave you the necessary support and guidance to eventually step into a job? And where did that 'job' and the opportunity to develop and obtain certain 'qualifications' come from in the first place? These are questions that people who have a job and money in the system will not ask themselves, because they may realize that in fact every aspect of our lives and why and how we got to where we are, has been entirely determined by the system we were born into and the chances that that system gave us through a multitude of factors in our environment that have shaped the entirety of 'who we are' and how we are able to deal with our environment since the moment we were born.

So, the problem isn't that 'humans aren't qualified', in fact that is an excuse to divert the attention from the actual situation, in an attempt to try and validate and justify ones own position in the system. The problem is that we've never even bothered investigating how the environment shapes an individual and determines if and how a being will in fact become 'qualified' - because it's easier to think and believe that 'we did it all ourselves' while we can't even really tell how exactly we came to be the person we are today, where our thoughts come from or how our 'personality' was created.

And so, this whole idea that a being can make anything of themselves in the system as long as they 'put their heart to it', is pure American brainwashing - to justify the existence of poverty and to be able to look away from such situations and feel good about oneself and ones 'own life' --- yet, is not based on any form of real insight in how the system works and how there isn't 'endless opportunity', just like there isn't 'endless resources' on this planet. How we've come to define 'opportunity' in the system is not based on the reality and does not take into account how the individual is shaped by its environment.

Well, there probably are people who should not work - children, the bedridden terminally ill, some profoundly disabled (not all - some profoundly disabled can work very satisfactorily) - but those people need to be cared for by those of us who CAN work. If it can't be handled in their families, or if their families can't do it without help, then help should be forthcoming, and it should come without condescension - without making these people feel they are without worth.

And I would add to what Kim A has said, "self-made" people are generally very effective warnings about the pitfalls of unskilled labor.

I am a realist. I am not a dreamer. I have always had my feet on the ground. For anyone to state that having a "job" is a right, well, that's so unrealistic. It's a personal choice. We can't make personal choices for other people. We can't get them to go to school, learn a trade, get a college degree hopefully a masters degree, go into the healthcare field, technology, engineering....the list goes on. We cannot have our government give each person a job when the fact is that not everyone wants a job and not everyone is even qualified to have a job for many different reasons.

This is pure socialism laced with a heavy ladle of communism. We are America. America was built on personal responsibility Americans......Americans who knew they needed to make serious choices early in order to support their families.
