Have you ever felt like not paying for something?
I don’t mean stealing or pilfering, for that would be morally bereft. I mean taking the time to consciously sit back, look at the world around you, and say to yourself: “Why should I pay for this?”
And by “pay”, I don’t just mean cough up the cash. I also mean “pay”, in the sense of having to suffer or be made to endure a situation that is simply not working for me.
Yes, I know I have free will; and that I should be able to remove myself from any such situation. But, hey, some situations (no matter how many positive thoughts I put out there!) “seem” to be way beyond my immediate control.
Who among us hasn’t had that inkling of a thought that they shouldn’t “pay” when their income tax account has arrived?
I know I have often asked myself: “Hang on a minute, when did I sign any document to say that I would agree to pay this amount? I hardly have anything in the bank right now despite working hard all my life, and just where are all my taxes going anyway?”
But what do you do when your government, who collects all your taxes – and who you (supposedly) voted into office to help, protect and lead you – tells you: “you are going to have to tighten your belts” (read: suffer and pay) “for years to come, because – guess what? – we stupidly took out a fake loan based on fake bonds from a highly deceptive bank run by a group of phenomenally rich people who have been pilfering from you and us for years.”
On top of this, they also add: “Oh, and did we not tell you? We have completely mishandled, misspent and misappropriated all the money that actually belongs to you and all the people of this country. Which is why you now have no nation-wide infrastructure, no societal support, no health insurance and why we have provided you with so little to allow you to enjoy your lives and live in comfort.”
Last year, in the same way the Occupy Movement rose out of New York’s Zuccotti Park, that bastion of ancient “democracy” Greece gave birth to a whole new people power philosophy: “Den Plirono” , which translates literally as “I Won’t Pay.”
Although it has taken a while to come to the wider world’s attention, I Won’t Pay is now growing in popularity and even has its own Facebook page. Judging by recent updates, I Won’t Pay is reaching out way beyond Greece.
Here’s what’s been going on: (Note: The title of this particular video is a slightly re-worked translation of Den Plirono).
Whether you agree with Den Plirono’s modus operandi or not, it is evident that, like the Occupy Movement, this new movement is also based on a deeper societal awakening that something is terribly, terribly wrong with the way the world’s economy is operating.
I Won’t Pay is simply another method of asserting that something is seriously amiss (and remiss) in what we are being told; in how we are being told to behave; in what we are be asked to believe; and, in what we are seeing and being given in return.
In a world where people often ask for proof that change is happening, I Won’t Pay shows that more and more of us are awakening and questioning the way the world’s economy is currently operating. It shows that more and more of us are not going to put up with a system that is inherently unequal – no matter where we are born or where we live.
It also proves that more and more people are standing up and asking for the equality and abundance that only the new economy and NESARA will bring: a world where everyone will be given the means whereby they can afford to enjoy their lives; where no one will be denied that which is vital to them simply on the basis of whether they can pay or not.
As SaLuSa said, back on July 14, 2010: “As promised, within the provisions of NESARA are virtually all of the steps necessary to reverse the established systems that have held you back. These are necessarily far-reaching and indicate the direction in which Humanity should have progressed.”
I Won’t Pay is part of our progression.
Just last week (February 27, 2012), SaLuSa added : “It will all be part of the end of old systems that allowed much fraudulent activity, and obscene profits made. Profit is not as you might say “a dirty word”, but it should reflect a fair reward for services given. A small number of people have acquired most of the wealth of the world, leaving millions poor and many on less than survival wages. Do not doubt for one moment that it will remain as such because abundance is coming, and the standards of living will be greatly increased.”
Even Matthew Ward told us in this week’s message (March 1, 2012): “National economies in bankrupt status will not be successfully revived; the global economy will reach rock bottom and an honorable system will start operating worldwide.”
I can’t wait. Then, like everyone right across the world, I will, honourably, never have to “pay” again.
