Greed, poverty, inequality, environmental destruction, war… how do they, at the top of the hierarchy, pull it off? How can a system in which so few make the important decisions, be able to sit comfortably in their pile of wealth while the rest of the world goes to waste? How can a small group of men in suits be able to direct the current in which an entire human society moves?
as republished from the-open-mind.com preface by Gregg Prescott, M.S.
I often ask people, “What would you be doing if there was no such thing as money?” Some people will answer along the lines of, “That would be impossible to fathom” or look at me as if I’m crazy without realizing how trapped within the system that they have become.

Watch the complete 2 hour movie on YouTube! From the Director, Christianne Wijk:
Our external reality is an expression of what we have collectively created together and we consider this to be REALITY.
Reality in this case means ‘OUR THOUGHTS REALISED’. So, yes, it is a form of reality indeed.
However, a lot of the realities we have created are not in harmony with our true being and planet earth. Western society is a slash and burn reality where what we take is not given back. This will eventually result in the exhaustion of resources of our planet.
