Introduction ---- If a good number of individuals agree or think that the current system
is not or is no longer suited to our needs, it is a factor in environmental destruction,
it induces the injustice or inhumanity, few of them are seriously considering and
practically a substantive change in society. ---- The reasons are multiple. ---- The most
common, in their minds, is that there is no other way to function socially. When an
alternative is considered, it rarely exceeds more distributed management benefits of the
market system. ---- For those familiar with the hypothesis of a social revolution, it
seems impossible to them because of a power which they suppose too favorable to those in
power today. ---- The uncertainty about the benefit of a better alternative society, and
the worst associated with painful experiences recorded in the conscious or unconscious
collective states called "communist" end of fossilized inertia and contributes
significantly to delay social upheaval nevertheless useful.
Yet a social revolution, not only necessary and can bring significant growth in all areas
for all members of the human community and alive.
Capitalism is not inevitable
It is not to recall the evils of capitalism.
Many people and organizations perfectly describe the overproduction, planned obsolescence,
waste, unemployment, poverty, pollution orchestrated by the financial profitability and
Many of them offer a better distribution of benefits including taxing speculation, sales
or labor, but few of us dare to question the very principle of the market economy and the
tool which turns : money.
In the minds of the current system which is immutable, if it was not, the balance of power
of those who control it is too disproportionate it is possible to challenge their power.
Yet the social and economic organization is the result in the installation of a concrete
theoretical constantly updated by the human mind.
So what is done can be undone as well.
Moreover, the balance of power in favor of those who hold the reins of power is a function
of their ability to pay the forces of repression in their service.
But money itself depends on the production and financial manipulations that can have a
real cash and mostly fictional.
The existing balance of power is not the side that we believe and it is sufficient
awareness of this fact immediately to organize a new way of working.
How to change the system?
A social revolution can only succeed in a global world. This may seem difficult but the
interdependence of globalization and capitalism makes this universality possible. It
depends on the collective consciousness of the goal and a clear vision of its implementation.
Fundamentally change the economic system requires moving to a non-market exchanges. The
aim is no longer making a financial profit but the real needs of the entire population.
For this, it is to allow everyone to bring what he wants and then can create to put all
its productions available to all. Private property is replaced by the freedom of use.
Achieve this way of working requires a common agreement. This unit can be achieved through
unification of struggles that unite in a general strike. One must go beyond protest to
allow reporting of natural resources and the means to transform the community to organize
a free distribution of the entire material and intellectual production.
This free then completely devalues ââthe money that is used by the rulers to establish and
defend their position. The revolutionary tilt is operated immediately, without transition.
It is better organized and more peaceful it happens.
A cashless society is viable?
A cashless society is not only viable but can meet the needs of all humanity without waste
or pollution. Far from hampering progress or operate a flashback, she opened the doors of
the human mind and allows him to discover the secrets of nature, most still hidden, and
the best use.
Do not have the goal of achieving financial gain as is now the goal of all transactions
negates the need to manufacture the sole purpose of selling.
It is no longer producing goods of poor quality for the market to poor people, but many
but to create sustainable products and quality available to everyone.
It is more overproduce in competitiveness but you need to adjust production according to
It is no longer wasting energy to find ways to sell is profitable, but to use them to
measure what is really useful.
It is about losing the intelligence and the means for controlling the proper functioning
of a market system obsolete but use them to find clean energy and inexhaustible.
It is no longer to have a tool or place used but rarely have access to all places vacant
and available objects.
There is more work to survive but to work its original vocation: a creative and fulfilling
allowing harmonious social relations.
This economy is about 70 to 80% of human energy wasted today by the market system
associated with the ability to make full activity for those who want to cause a
considerable increase in the productive forces allowing satisfy all human needs without
any environmental pollution.
It just do it.
Switching to a classless society without money and without state depends only on us.
The utopias of the past have shaped today's realities, utopias today can make tomorrow's
