Day 175: We Have All Become Yes Men

Tonight I watched a documentary called ‘Yes Men’.

A comedic documentary which follows The Yes Men, a small group of prankster activists, as they gain world-wide notoriety for impersonating the World Trade Organization on television and at business conferences around the world. The film begins when two members of The Yes Men, Andy and Mike, set up a website that mimics the World Trade Organization's--and it's mistaken for the real thing. They play along with the ruse and soon find themselves invited to important functions as WTO representatives. Delighted to represent the organization they politically oppose, Andy and Mike don thrift-store suits and set out to shock unwitting audiences with darkly comic satire that highlights the worst aspects of global free trade. 

If you haven’t seen this documentary show, I suggest to watch it: Yes Men, to see a really clear example of how we as humanity have become brainwashed to accept whatever is presented to us, where only the really obviously extreme actually gets us to question things. You’ll see in this video a stark example of how we as humans have come to lack any ability to recognize that which is harmful to life and should not be accepted, and the shocking level of what we as humanity will accept and allow within this world, and within the very organizations that we accept as having prominent positions in our world system.

Of course, this isn’t actually the way to save the world. The first step is just to waking ourselves up to what we’ve been accepting and allowing, so that we can really see who and what we’ve become, and that we are in fact responsible for how we create this reality, and all the suffering and abuse that is taking place, through allowing an economic system that is not effectively supporting everyone.

The key is to see within/for ourselves as individuals how we live this point of accepting what is presented to us, and not questioning what is going on, and to educate ourselves as to what is really going on in this world, and how we must care for all life here, if we want the best life for ourselves. And thus develop the ability to recognize that which is harmful to life and that which benefit life as a whole, so we can support that which is benefit and not allow that which is abusive. I mean, it’s really quite strange we don’t exist that way already, that we’ve allowed ourselves to disregard life to the extent where we take a back seat to reality and just accept what’s here, regardless of the consequences.

But it is really no surprise that we exist in such a level of ignorance when you look at what it is we’re doing to this world and ourselves, how we’re treating life here, and practically abusing life in every way possible. Deluding ourselves that humanity cares in some way, when there is no evidence of this caring when we allow beings to starve to death and go without the necessities of physical life.

How is it that we can go through our entire education system and come out as a human being that disregards our world and all life? Our school system has been designed to support the system and business, and not life, and the result is we teach children generation after generation that the disregard of life is acceptable for the sake of business and making profit. This requires to be corrected, before we completely annihilate ourselves and all life here, and thus the initiative of Equal Money Capitalism is under way, to take Capitalism and align it into a system that no longer abuse and disregard life. To stop churning out humans within the school systems to be batteries to fuel the system of business and making money while not caring about life and the very environment and nature that supports us to live, but rather giving children an education of real value, to become beings that actually care for life, in learning how this physical reality actually operates, how our very lives are dependent on it and the quality of it, and therefore everything we do in this reality should be evaluated to ensure that we are in no way harming life here, as to so is to harm ourselves.
