The message of a top-line collapse rendering the Executive function of Corporations and governmental Cabinet Offices to a state of collapse is not a message that was ever destined to be easy to deliver.
The ruthless behaviours that manifest from the bottom-line fixation of a stuck-addict seem easier to see than the bottom-line fixated antics of say the biggest bank in the world RBS in 2008, than the antics of the directors and auditors of Carillion and InterServe or BHS and Debenhams here in the UK.
Equally the present exposure of illegal activities from within large pharmaceutical and addiction treatment conglomerates is as, if not more, fixated on the bottom-line of making money than is the bottom-line fixation of a drug addict to get their drugs.
So, how to give some information to begin to give some new food for thought for the leaders of finance in a collapsed monetary system.
First, when in a hole admit it and stop digging.
Second, see that this elevating of money to a primary position in the mass governance of people by very small numbers of leaders has happened over and over again in history and it has never ended well according to the scriptures of all of the world’s religions.
So, to look at my message of stuck-addiction collapsing global cultures, it’s now time to look into the ordering of the administration of the now globally cohering 12 Step Fellowships. How do millions of previously dying, diseased ego-maniacs manage the money needed to have ensured that their continued presence is now undeniably working across scores of 12 Step Fellowships in up to 190 countries?
Simply put, the Fellowships manifest with individuals who have a conscious contact with God, as they understand God, coming together in autonomous Groups that submit collectively to a Group Conscience that is an organ of organisational power from a Higher Power, from a top-line.
The bottom-line necessity of money is rigourously kept in place and connected to the top-line of the Group Conscience by the principle of a prudent reserve.
This principle of prudent reserve has protected the 12 Step Fellowships now for over eighty years. The Groups are self-supporting by their own contributions and any excess money is given swiftly to a central office.
This is to guard against the sickness of financial hoarding that is actually a symptom of the illness that is destroying our planet, not helpful to a sustainable Human propiety at all, despite the enticements of a published “Rich List”.
So, the creatives might have to work through this principle of prudent reserve into workable social policy with all of the urgency of people escaping from a collapsing, flaming building …. but it is a principle that has provenance.
The prudent reserve needed for a person in an occupation earning the wage say of a government’s Prime Minister, which is somewhere near 7x the wage of a low earner in the UK presently, well their prudent reserve might be 7x larger than the lowest earner once the size of that reserve had been established.
A start point might be approximately one year’s food and housing expenditure. Anything more than this might be seen as posing a spiritual threat rather than as a symbol of great success.
To start to live under spiritual principles rather than in physical hypocrisy will be a great shock for people, but the world is on fire, it’s time to decide.
As it says in the 12 Step Programme, Spiritual Principles are not theoretical, they now have to be lived.
This post is offered as a point to ponder. The Human, being a leader, meeting with The Human, being members of creative teams will be well able to create sustainable ways of harmoniously dwelling within recovered cities and cultures.
25 people on this planet Earth have as much material wealth as 3,500,000,000 people. Clearly the system is broken akin to the film Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs with nobody able to challenge the rogue money machines that do half of their work now with BOTS that are way away from any connection to democratic control.
This is the brinkmanship that the very ill hoarders of money are enmeshed within, as ever. They stare with their lobby driven puppet governments down the barrels of each other’s MAD weaponry and threaten each other with financial instruments of destruction, all with the insanity of their imagined apparent impunity from Spiritual consequences.
My message, as in Morris West’s The Clowns Of God, is the Dickensian story of A Christmas Carol being brought to life in real time within the backdrop of Attenborough’s message to the UN being actually true. The Scrooges had better wake up and rejoin Mankind while they still have time.
