From the ashes of the old slavery system, a new framework for humans to live in the world will emerge – a framework that’s collective, equitable and honors everyone’s truth.
If you’re like me, you’re sick and tired of being on the hamster wheel of life, with society prodding us to churn out the goods and services to make the people at the top unimaginably wealthy while leaving the “little people” struggling to make ends meet.

“It was apparent that materialism was in complete control of the economic structure, the final objective of which was for the individual to become part of a system providing an economic security at the expense of the human soul, mind and body.” – Manly P. Hall
We are born into this world with the most amazing tool to shape our life: an open mind, a brain without connections. We spend the first five or so years navigating the outside world without any preconceived notions. We learn using our senses and we see reality as it is, not “how it should be.” Imagination, at this point, has no limit.
At around the age of five, we enter the school system, where a one size fits all philosophy dominates. For the next thirteen years, we learn how to read, write and do math. It’s during this period that the atrophy of the spirit begins. While learning these logical, left-brained, and in today’s world, useless aptitudes, the holistic, idea-generating right brain begins to die. We instead become logical and robotic. Imagination ceases to exist.

Between 1974 and 1979, a radical experiment was taking place in a small Manitoba city that has all but been forgotten. Yet the result of the Canadian program is nothing short of astonishing: for those five years, poverty was utterly eradicated. The secret? Providing a basic annual income for everyone — no strings attached.
What might sound like a capitalist’s nightmare — People wouldn’t work… They would become lazy and a burden on society… The free-market would be destroyed! — turned out to be an incredible success without issue. But when a Conservative government came to power provincially in 1977, and 1979 federally, the program was dismantled and seemingly lost to the archives of societal experiments — until now.
Want to figure out what the big to-do is with the Federal Reserve – or help someone else better understand it? This is one of the best explanations I’ve ever seen of how our financial system actually works. It’s a must-see video.
