One of the principle causes of cultural decline and belief attachments is the artificial scarcity which is engineered by the monetary market system. The monetary marketing system is based on the ideas and principles of Adam Smith and the belief that perpetual economic growth fuelled by endless consumerism and consumption causes economic prosperity.
The fallacy of monetarism
Monetarism is based on this same principle of perpetual economic growth which is a belief attachment in itself. Perpetual economic growth isn't possible because it is not supported by universal principles in that creativity and interaction is necessary to promote existence and maintain balance. The belief in perpetual economic growth is linear thinking, the reality of the universe and existence is based on cycles - specifically the creative cycle.
The monetary market is based on fractional reserve banking, where
money is created out of thin air. This means that all money is debt
and inflation and poverty are inevitable. There is a symmetrical
aspect here which is tied to physics. The greater the economic
growth and more money is created, the greater the degree of
poverty and inequality in society.
This means that the wealthy cannot become wealthier without other people becoming poorer and experiencing more hardship. This is what creates a social hierarchy and a need for domination which serves as a vehicle for belief attachments.
The monetary market system is not only destroying the planet and Nature through its relentless pursuit of natural resources and reliance on fossil fuels, it is also arresting social progress and human evolution through everyone needing to work and earn money to pay for things to keep the economy growing.Such important and basic rights as freedom of choice when it comes to occupation and self-determination when it comes to work are no longer widely recognized, and many people decide to do the jobs they do out of sheer financial need and a desire to avoid social stigma which can result from being perceived as not working and not contributing to the economy (actually the monetary markets).,
