There is plenty of money, food, water, oil, energy, raw materials, arable land, clean air, space, and time. Why do we choose to believe all of the stories, fear porn, and narratives that contradict reality? Never before in recorded history has wealth been so abundant, or general prosperity so widespread. There are more billionaires and millionaires worldwide than ever before. So why are there wars? Why is there any hunger? Why is there an increase in suicide, depression, and addiction? How is it possible that there are homeless people anywhere in the world?
The problem with charity is it shouldn’t exist. It shouldn’t even be a thing. The fact that we have increasing needs for charities, non-profits, and non-governmental organizations is proof that our old systems are defunct, destructive, and incapable of providing our cultures and societies with their basic needs. They serve the few, and the special interests. But they don’t entirely serve humanity, nor the planet.
If you’ve achieved massive success in the capitalism of the modern world, you’re probably ready to give away 95% of all future earnings, right?
Most of the world is at peace.
Most humans care about the wellbeing of other humans, and the planet.
Most of the planet is uninhabited.
There is more money than ever.
There is more awareness, mindfulness, collective consciousness, and elevated spiritual energy than ever.
