Description

Some say that money is the root of all evil and the solution is to get rid of money to create peace on earth. Others say that human nature cannot be changed. At the Equal Life Foundation we are living proof that human nature CAN be changed and we show how changing the systems and structures of this world isn't enough to establish a fundamental change. Changing the system goes hand in hand with changing ourselves.

When you trap people in a system of debt they can't afford the time to think. Tuition Fee increases are a disciplinary technique, and by the time students graduate, they are not only loaded with debt, but have also internalized the disciplinarian culture. This makes them efficient components of the consumer economy." - Noam Chomsky https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7ADdBAT7h0 Suggested documentaries to watch for further Self-Education: Inequality for all documentary: http://www.putlocker.to/watch-inequality-for-all-online-free-putlocker.html The Four Horsemen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fbvquHSPJU On Advertisement and the end of the world: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8gM0Q58iP0 Third World America - Chris Hedges http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drZE65_134g The Power Principle http://metanoia-films.org/the-power-principle/ The Trap http://archive.org/details/AdamCurtis_TheTrap Psywar http://metanoia-films.org/psywar/ Human Resources: Social Engineering in the 20th Century http://metanoia-films.org/human-resources/ The Century of the Self: Part 1- Happiness Machines http://youtu.be/prTarrgvkjo Visit my Blog http://teachersjourneytolife.com Connect with me here: http://facebook.com/annadestonianbrixthomsen Tags: Social change, truth-out, Michael Johnson, social change theory, facilitating social change, real change, changing the world, Noam Chomsky, Chris Hedges, Money is the root of all evil, human nature, human nature can't change, can human nature change, changing human nature, education for a better world, World Economy, Capitalism, Free Market, Richard Reich, Market Capitalism, The Wolf of Wall Street, The 4 horsemen, Economics for Dummies, the one percent, the 99 %, The Real News Network, Marlen Vargas Del Razo, Political Power, Democracy, LIG, Living Income Guaranteed, Equal Life Foundation, basic income, ELF
