Day 7 Security of Law

Yesterday I was interrogated while coming back into Canada from the United States of America. I was driving my car. I was required to to drive my car over to the Canadian Boarder Security Office Headquarter for an extensive vehicle search. I decided I would video record the ordeal since I had a video camera on my phone and I thought it was ridiculous that the boarder police were going through all my stuff and examining and searching my vehicle with meticulous attention to detail. The boarder officer asked me if I was video recording and I told him I was and he asked me if I knew why they were searching my vehicle and I said, "ya it's for security purposes".

In looking at the word 'security', I see that there is many meanings. Initially I just associated security with protection and safety....however with further consideration of financial terms, security is money.

Lets look at the legal definition of 'security':

Protection; assurance; indemnification.

The term security is usually applied to a deposit, lien, or mortgage voluntarily given by a debtor to a creditor to guarantee payment of a debt. Security furnishes the creditor with a resource to be sold or possessed in case of the debtor's failure to meet his or her financial obligation. In addition, a person who becomes a surety for another is sometimes referred to as a "security."

After the boarder interrogation I was asking myself about the legitmacy of boarder security.
In looking into boarder security and questioning the legitimacy of boarder security, I noticed that any product that was deemed to be an issue at the boarder crossing is able to be purchased within my counrty. I noticed that the boarder security was all about money....protecting money interests....controlling money interests and regulations. I noticed that cocaine for example is not produced in canada....yet there is a shit ton of it here and that it is in fact big business....and for a shit ton of it to be here, it is not making it's way here in itsy bitsy little, it's being brought through boarders in huuuuuge amounts. Why and how does cocaine make it's way through the boarder in huuuuge amounts? ? ? MONEY. Money moves products.
I was looking at the word  'country' and 'countries' after my experience in travelling to and from a country. I noticed the words 'count' and 'try'....or 'count and tries'. I associated count with accounting and money as like coutning the value...and I connected the word try and tries to the fact that every country is playing the same game of trying to accumulate value and worth...and is always counting the money as like strengthening security because the wealth of a nation is dependent upon it's security protections...because when security protections are in place a country can operate in all sorts of crazy ways to uphold security protections at the expsense of individual privacy rights and protections because the security of a country is worth more than the security of one individual...and an individual citizen of a country is an essential product of the country that contributes to the total value of the country.
Also, I noticed and remembered that war is about money, oil and security protections. Is there any real difference besides the spelling in the words; money, oil, and security?
Also, I looked at wartime propoganda slogans along the likes of, "we must fight to protect the security of our country."
I looked at boarder security as a means of terrorism security like preventing the participation of terrorist activity. I then looked at the point that I didn't forsee a real issue with terrorism if we had a sound economic system as like Equal Money Capitalism. See I examined the fact that our entire world system is rooted in terrorist activity.
I experienced a little bit of anxiety within myself throughout the boarder interrogation experience even though I had nothing to hide....I feared the potential loss that could happen from the incident...even though it didn't seem rational for me to be charged with some bogus crime and be imprisoned.  Then again our legal system isn't based on common sense rationality. Experiencing anxiety was hell. Our shared reality reflects a prison planet and the prison planet reflects our mind imprisonment.
Lets change the nature of our minds to that which is best for all Life here.
Lets bring forth a world where All Life is of the highest value and All Life is secured in the greatest ways possible.

Day 6 - When Social Rights become Meaningless

Why is there such a big difference between what we declare in our constitutions and international agreements and the actual world we are creating?  

In this blog we will look at social ground rights. This is a specific form of constitutional rights, and we will look specifically at the situation in the Netherlands. Ground rights are a type of rights in a constitution that in theory express ‘the human dignity’ and ‘respect for the individual’, such as the right to privacy, the right to free speech and the right to non-discrimination, etc.

In Dutch law there is a difference between classical ground rights and social ground rights. Classical ground rights will be those rights that are supposed to protect the citizen against abusive tendencies from the government (such as the right to individual freedom and privacy). Here the government stands accountable and the citizen can take the government to court for infringing on his classical ground rights.

With social ground rights, on the other hand, the government is giving itself social responsibilities in relation to the welfare of the population, however this is done without there being any form of accountability.

An example would be the goal to provide “sufficient employment” (Art 19. of the Dutch Constitution: “Improvement of sufficient employment is an object of concern of the government”. See also Art 20: “The subsistence of the population and the spreading of the wealth is an object of concern of the government.”). One could ask what is “sufficient employment”? Hence it is never possible for a citizen to make the government or any institution accountable for not being able to provide “sufficient employment” – because “sufficient employment” conveniently means nothing.

Social ground rights often sound good, but when having a closer look, we see in the very wording of those rights that they stand as empty promises without any form of accountability.

In Equal Money Capitalism for instance the objective is to create 100% employment. That is a clear commitment that cannot be misunderstood. It means that any person who is not able to get employment has the legal right to a job – which must then also be provided, as jobs are that which generates income, which is how the right to a rich and equally abundant life for all is ensured. Obviously Equal Money Capitalism is based on the premise that there is always more than enough work to do – because the journey to perfect and improve life on earth equally for everyone is certainly never complete – and therefore jobs will always be available.

In the current form of capitalism we have become used to the idea that Human and social rights don’t really mean anything, - and hence to the idea that life has inherently no value - and that it is okay for half the world to exist in poverty combined with skyrocketing figures of unemployment, because “hey, we are doing our best.”

This will certainly no longer be acceptable in Equal Money Capitalism. The fulfilling of its social commitments will be the primary way in which the effectiveness of the new system can be measured. The social rights in Equal Money Capitalism will thus be actual commitments that can be measured so that the written words and the lived reality become Equal and One.
