Modern Society

Most of modern society is (still) based on economic gain.

Many (most) people nowadays will find this logic, because they don't know anything else and society has worked like that for generations. Thus they think this is unalterable. As in former eras people thought it was unalterable that society were mainly based on war or on religion or on some feudal system or that the earth was flat. The same way that these ancient convictions turned out not to be necessarily true, it could turn out that economics does not necessarily have to be the base of society.

Como es bien sabido las empresas que más reclamaciones generan son las empresas de telecomunicaciones, aunque las constructoras e inmobiliarias parecen estar haciendo un esfuerzo contínuo para desbancarlas. También están los bancos, el sector médico y la propia administración pública.

Money, banks, economy and worse.

Money

Money is a means.

In the "old times" money didn't exist. People simply exchanged 'products' or 'services'. Eggs for a piece of meat, ....

 

Most people nowadays have forgotten this. They think of money as a goal. In fact a great deal of society thinks money is a goal and is based on this shortsighted understanding of life.<--break->

As long as I remember, I have always felt lucky to live in current times (and in Europe, actually, Holland). I developed this conscience at a young age when I started to understand how fine a life I (we) had comparing to what the middle ages must have been; misery, hunger, cold, the plague, war, political oppression and religious oppression... That alone was enough to feel happy about any circumstance I could be in.

The established order

The "Established Order" (let's say EO) is a concept that can be considered at several scale levels running from small and short term to large and long term. We all know the small scale, generally short term, Established Order by personal experience, being our parents/tutors the first established order we have to deal with. Then there is the teachers, the police or your boss.

The large scale established order is generally not represented by a specific person that we deal with directly, even if in many cases it does have direct influence on our lives, sometimes even without being aware: emperors, kings and queens, spiritual leaders, religions, governments and most recently: banks and the international mega-coorporations.<--break->

I believe in a cosmic force "out there" that maintains balance all over the universe.

Both "What the bleep..." as "the Secret" refer to this greater universal or cosmic mechanism as a kind of energy that's out there waiting to be used. Strong intention with the right mindset would be the instrument to get it working for you. I think is should be possible.

Ik beschouw internet als de belangrijkste uitvinding voor de menselijke vooruitgang na de boekdrukkunst.
