Making Light of Black PR, Part 4, OUR Solution.
OUR Solution to the $cientology Problem, Inter Alia
This is OUR planet, ha, ha.
I am posting this to alt.religion.scientology because the ideas herein, although not originally connected to $cientology, can now be seen as a workable solution to the $cientology problem, and because many of the ars participants know me, and I don't know just about anybody else.
China threatening Taiwan, and me and everyone, with neutron bombs (as if being threatened with some other kind of bombs is a better deal) and the likelihood that for any other reason I might be offed prematurely (as if there's an unpremature time for even the off season) I figured I'd post this today.
I suppose, ironically, $cientology has rendered my otherwise off topic communicable idea about money on topic by their own black PR use of the idea including in posts to ars. The attacks generally quote a November 11, 1992 article from the Marin (CA) Independent Journal and many iclude a copy of the IJ's classically classic photo of me in Zappadmasana with a big globe in my lotus lap. The $cientology cult additionally sent one of their buddies in the IRS, with whom they're on a first name basis, a letter, which I'll try to dig up and post, black PRing my monetary ideas.
I've also written about this subject and related events in my life, in several declarations which have been filed in $cientology litigations, and produced most of the documents which follow here in discovery to the organization. But today it's because it's about time. I hope it helps all of us, and I hope anyone else who also thinks there's a hope, gets that with me and he or she, there's more than a hope.
Let me be perfectly clear, I'm not asking for your money, and I don't want you to do anything, or anything any different from the what you're doing. I'm not running for political office; although when I do my campaign slogan will be, "Vote for me is all you got to do." (R) Obviously for this to work in a reasonable amount of time I need help. Ha, ha, ha.
In 1989 I wrote the following short essay and sent it to, I think, the Oakland (CA) Tribune:
A CRASH COURSE IN SPECULATION
The crash of '87 demonstrated at least one fact: money has no value. In a breath of history a trillion dollars disappeared, and nothing changed.
Some say the crash is back, and some say it's a matter of time. Some fear a crash will lead to panic, and some that panic will lead to a crash. In truth there isn't even fear to be feared.
But if the crash comes, or even if there's a panic, I have a solution: give money its real value, nothing. Have nothing to do with money. Accept no wages and pay no bills. Neither give nor receive money, for it has no value.
I am not urging a cashless, credit-based economy, for credit, based on money, is as worthless as cash. Nor am I arguing that money is the root of all evil, because evil is, like money, in reality, nothing. I am, however, suggesting that if our society is looked at closely and with hope in mind and heart it just might be observable that the elimination of money need not have a downside; i.e., it does nothing. And the ideal time for such a shift in perception to occur is when money can seem to be all important, at the point of greatest financial crash and panic.
I am not the first philosopher to note money's illusory nature nor to propose its elimination. In earlier times, however, money appeared to make more sense, society seemed to need it, and those who had accumulated lots of it were somehow successful in convincing those who had less that they were poorer, less secure, and should do what those with the lots wanted in order to get more. Now there is computerization, robotization and instant communication. Now money can go and not be missed.
It can still be collected, because collectors will, if they wish, continue to collect. Car makers can make cars, builders can build, truck drivers can drive, and farmers can farm, because that's what they do. Police can still bring law and order and PG & E can still provide power. Even the government can still govern. Mark and Jose can bash baseballs and each other and Rickey can still steal bases. (n1)
On the other hand thieves might not want to steal if there isn't any money in it. The war on poverty can be declared won as everyone's real wealth will become obvious. The war on drugs would go the same way as there would be no one to sell to or buy from. Who would backhaul deadly chemicals in food containers if the illusion of economic advantage was removed? Traffic problems disappear and environmental issues can be resolved. The homeless can have the banks, brokerages and insurance companies; in fact the whole financial district. Brokers, bankers, investors and insurance agents can do whatever they want. No more deficit, no more taxes, no more stock market, no more crashes.
I am not advocating anarchy, but believe it can easily be avoided if, when the urge to panic arises, we do nothing; including and especially doing nothing with money. Nor am I promoting any political idea akin to communism. The communists have not shown the courage or risibility needed to relinquish their rubles. I am suggesting non-mutual exclusivity as a better idea. Something does not mean something else.
No one need feel threatened by any idea herein. Ownership and occupancy of property is not an unsolvable problem. Equitable distribution of goods is not necessarily less easy than the current inequitable system.
It is becoming clear that we are entering the Age of Wisdom, because we can now understand what it is. No one has ever been able to write on the Face of God that in money we trust, but someone in his wisdom got it right the other way around.
(n1) At this date Mark McGwire and Jose Canseco still bash their share of long balls, but rarely if ever each other, having left the A's and gone to separate teams and leagues. Rickey also moved on, but what, is he back with the A's? where one would hope he would end his Cooperstown career in crime.
In 1990 the Iraq-US War happened, and in 1991 I was back involved with $cientology litigation as full time as full time could be, and sometime during this period the thought came to me that it might be possible to get enough people to see wisdom in the idea that the economic system by general agreement could be changed beneficially, to actually make beneficial change possible. Something could be organized.
In 1992, while working for anti-cult attorney Ford Greene, I wrote a few more short essays on the subject and put together a package of my writings which I sent to several people, including those on the recipients list which follows here.
October 23, 1992
Greetings. I am the founder of the Organization of United Renunciants (OUR), which the accompanying papers concern, and The Gerald Armstrong Corporation,(n1) which owns some of the rights to some of my works. I am by profession an artist, writer and philosopher.
I believe that these papers contain a worthy idea and I ask that you take them seriously.
I have had, even to me, startling success in getting signatures to OUR Pledge, and I do expect that in the not too distant future we will reach OUR critical number. I urge the recipients of these materials, therefore, to do what is in their heart and power to ensure the peaceful transition of the country's values.
I do not believe that I have the system and nothing but the system. I have thought about this subject a great deal more than I have written about it, and my writing on the subject is neither complete nor polished. I, therefore welcome your questions and suggestions.
I am enclosing a list of references for your ease of investigation.
God's blessing to all.

The resolution of all planetary economic problems, except those generated by unnecessary resistance to the resolution, is now with us. It arrived as a godsend.
Its implementation will be peaceful, kind, fair and safe. It will not cost anything. It is so simple a child would understand it.
Implementation is possible immediately except for two obstacles: not enough people know of the plan; and significant anticipated unnecessary resistance. This document will bring to people word of the plan. The setting of OUR deadline, November 11, 1992 (n1), will confront all resistance.
The plan calls for a single act of courage on that date by somewhere between one and eleven percent of the national population. (n2) Because it will be done on that specific day by courageous souls linked in purpose and faith, its effect will be heroic and irreversible.
There is sufficient time before November 11 for somewhere between one and eleven percent of the population to forge the needed link. The Organization of United Renunciants is dedicated to linking people for this plan, providing information and understanding to all who ask, and protecting OUR participants.
I am the founder of the Organization and responsible for its writings and decisions. (n3) I welcome communications and accept help. I have no designs on the U.S. Presidency, which will never be available to me because I was not born a citizen. I am, however, eligible for the Prime Ministership, a job I have also not sought, of Canada, an even bigger country. Regardless, I am as American as Mahatma Gandhi.
My plan is based on the fact that money has no value. I wrote about this in 1989 in an essay I called "A Crash Course In Speculation." Between then (n4) and now various events and realizations occurred which led to the plan and made it timely. And everything has continued to convince me that money indeed has no value.
George Bush's deadly deadline to Saddam Hussein gave me the idea of issuing our deadline. The fact that it was OUR deadline resulted in the Organization of United Renunciants. Organizing renunciants made sense because I had, in August 1990, as a result of understanding the Persian Gulf crisis, and accepting the idea of renunciation as guidance, given away all my money, real estate, paper holdings and personal effects and forgiven all debts owed me.
November 11, 1992, since it is a week after national elections, since things don't take as long as they took, and since it is to this country's leaders that the deadline is issued, is the perfect day. And the ultimatum to the leaders is simply this: come up with a better plan or we will, starting November 11, have nothing to do with money.
If by November 11 we do not have enough renunciants to effectuate OUR ultimatum we will set a new deadline; April 15, 1993, for example. (n5) We will not call for OUR members to have nothing to do with money on any deadline date unless we are certain that we have the number necessary to achieve OUR goal: the peaceful transformation of the system of management of the affairs of government and people.
The Organization of United Renunciants asks for no money. Neither does it refuse money. All money received will be used, until it is no longer currency, to inform and maintain communication between OUR members. Neither I, nor any other of OUR members, will receive any monetary remuneration for OUR work. (n6) If the resources necessary to do the work are not provided, it merely will not be done. Since resources are as far as the eye can see, there's really not much space for failure.
(n1) At this time, OUR Latest Deadline ("OLD") is November 11, 2000.
(n2) I have been told by someone who swore that studies indicate that information diffusion in a human set occurs when in the neighborhood of fifteen percent of the set have been exposed to the information.
(n3) I meant by this that I was solely to blame for the idea and the writing. I did not mean I held or sought any control over anyone, or even over whatever flowed from any of this. I am actually praying that the good computer folks will put their heads together on this, and take it completely off my hands. Then I can put my hands to what they're great for, picking up trash.
(n4) The first statement of OUR plan, along with OUR Pledge and related writings, was mailed to fifteen political people or organizations and newspapers on October 23, 1992. These documents have been given to a number of other people since then. Consider yourself one of OUR friends if you're getting this now.
(n5) Any future date, e.g., April 15, 2000, works fine. OUR idea had been to stick to the eleven- eleven date, because it's a remembrance of armistice, a perfect day with every good reason to do nothing, but there are plenty of days to go around.
(n6) I've changed my mind about this. I don't think it makes any difference if the good folks who might do this get paid, and if they want to be paid to do it, then happily pay them as much as it takes.
We, the Organization of United Renunciants ("OUR"), being of sound mind and good intentions, and out of a love of our fellows, our world and country, do hereby Pledge:
1. In recognition of its valuelessness, and unless someone comes up with a better plan before November 11, 2000 ("OUR Day") we will, from that date forward, have nothing to do with money.
2. On November 11, 2000 we will forgive all debts owed to us.
3. From November 11, 2000 forward we will pay no taxes, buy no insurance, deal with no banks and keep no financial records.
4. From November 11, 2000 forward we will work as called for the peace and prosperity of all; but we will not work for money.
5. From now on we will peacefully resist tyranny.

WISDOM HAS NO DOWNSIDE
The resolution of problems is neither easy nor hard.
Government's primary function is to feed people. Because this is so simple and takes so little time, and in fact people as a rule want to feed themselves, government can do all sorts of other things.
Elections in large part are the action of deciding which of vying political groups can do in the best way the best set of other things. If a political group does not even have the determination to feed people it should not be considered as a potential government. If a government can't feed people it not only has no business being a government it isn't one. Since every country, state, city or planetary space is owed a legitimate government, a group, acting as a government but not feeding its people, is standing in the way of the legitimate government. All the illegitimate governments of the world fall into this category.
The only answer to the national debt is to cancel it. At the same time cancel all debts owed to this country. It's too bad, perhaps, that the U.S. didn't cancel the debt owed to it back when it was a global creditor, but it's no less timely now. Maybe a little more embarrassing. I submit, however, that the nation (n1) can argue that not only did it not understand before now that money had no value, but there also wasn't the computer to zero things out.
We have ourselves to thank for the deficit, and we can thank God He didn't create it. Therefore it is unarguably in our hands to take care of it. The deficit's wonderful lesson is that the more gargantuan and ghastly it became the easier it was to see it really didn't exist and would disappear with the stroke of a pen. While we're at it we should disappear all debt of any kind anywhere. God, Who created us in His Image, is indebted to no one.
Some rich soul may argue that as a debtor nation we must honor the international commitments our debts imply. Thank God this country really is a superpower; who's going to argue with us? Of course it would become instantly clear to our global neighbors that to survive in a sane world they would want to cancel their debts as quickly as possible as well.
A better answer to the homeless problem is private ownership. Right now we're headed, in the name of capitalism, on a break neck tear toward total socialism. A few more recessionary squeezes and all property everywhere will be owned by the state and a few other faceless corporate fictions. It makes ever so much more sense for everyone to own where they are. Once that's taken care of, see who's out in the cold, and where the empty homes are. A perfect task for a computer. Landlords and ladies would be happy because they wouldn't be responsible for all the homes they don't live in.
There is no evidence that the employed eat more than the unemployed; in fact there is some evidence that the more employed someone is the less he or she eats. It is the indolent who have more time and space for eating. In any event, there is no reason for people to not be employed. In fact, it is impossible that anyone could be unemployed. Someone might not do his job, and might not show up where he was needed, but he would never be out of work.
The assignment of resources is local according to a distribution program passed by elected legislators. "The program is the platform."
Fortunately, by eliminating money the nation's consumption of fuel will be manifestly reduced. So there won't be much of a need for oil drilling or coal mining for a while. And by that time there could be a prodigality of applicants for drilling or mining adventures.
There are lots of incentives in the world, the most valueless of which is money. But if money must be replaced with other incentives, its best replacements so far thought of are fame and vacations. Clean up your mess, see Paris in the springtime. Because business class, and the poor salesmen's economy class, will disappear, commercial airlines can retool to handle the burgeoning holiday-bound
Since money has no value, more is no greater than less. The reason player salaries are embarrassing is that they render fatuous otherwise perfectly fine athletes. Ask Joe Montana. (n2) He threw way more touchdowns when he was getting way less money.
Because so many people can't find work right now so many things don't get done.
Paint the house that needs painting. First.
(n1) I am posting this from Canada, of course.
(n1) Joe has now retired, and his TD passing days are over, but the same principle continues. Tripling Shaq's salary will not mean one more bucket next season.
It goes without saying that it has been said that money is a means of exchange. It has been that for a long time. It has at least that purpose in every country of every political coloration and to every reasonably rational individual including those who have none and those who have renounced it.
Until recently money was arguably as good as any other conceivable means of exchange and so it remained the predominant currency; and in fact is defined almost universally as currency. And currency is defined as a means of exchange. Now, unlike before, there is the computer. It is a far better, and much cheaper, means of exchange.
Even now money and the computer perform the same function: they direct the movement of things. Money directs wheat into flour, tomatoes into bottles, olives into oil and pizza into ovens; cars into showrooms and thence up driveways; bodies into bikinis and onto operating tables; cable into TVs; phone calls along wires; gas into tanks; presidents into white houses. Money directs much of what gets done all day and all night everywhere. It just does a terrible job of it.
The computer directs planes onto flight decks; missiles into targets, ink to printers. And it directs many of the things that money too directs: cars into showrooms, calls along wires, even grain into flour. The computer does, except for one glitch, a great job. Poetically, replacing money with the computer as currency repairs the glitch.
The glitch is a programming error, immediately correctable, which arises from the assignment of value to money in computations. Money has no value, and assigning it value, or the inclusion of it at all in any computation skews the result. The computer will always produce a wrong answer, just as man in his pre-computer wisdom has, when money of any assigned value other than zero, is entered into his computations. Remove money from any computation, and, all other data being reasonably accurate, the answer will be reasonably right.
There are meter maids and men who drive around our city streets in little gas vehicles chalking the tires of larger gas vehicles parked in these streets for no other reason than to make money. The men and maids grow nothing, feed no one, heal not a wound. Nor do they even bend over to pick up one scrap of the national tonnage of trash they drive by and wade through on their daily rounds. Their products are chalk dust, deadly gases, sebaceous glutei, wasted paper, wasted fuel and wasted lives.
Every day, using computers, a few men and women who have never missed a meal, buy zillions of tons of corn, beans and chickens, for no other reason than to make money. The same few sell the same commodities for the same reason - to make money. The commodities didn't move from their warehouses and the brokers didn't move from their glutei. While millions of men, women and children, who spend a lifetime missing meals, can't buy an ear of corn, a handful of beans or a chicken because they have no money.
Every day countless millions of people drive to work and spend untold unhappy hours doing it for what is completely valueless - to make money. We clog our highways, pollute our planet, squander our resources, lie, cheat and steal for the same valueless purpose. We say we need jobs to make money to buy corn and chickens lest we starve. But all the money in the world, no matter how well watered and fertilized, can't grow a stalk of corn, and chickens won't eat the stuff. God grows all life and makes all things. Man can direct where some of the lifeforms and things go; the computer can be a better currency in that task.
Take doctors for example. They know that having more money thrust at them to perform better operations is stupid. They'd have to take off their gloves, lift their gown, pocket the cash, or even a check, wash their hands of lucre's filth, and call for a new pair of gloves. The patient expires. The doctor has to get more money to pay his escalating malpractice insurance. Money's only function in medicine is to slow productivity, and guarantee malpractice.
Eliminate money as currency and with it go malpractice awards and any need for an insurance industry. Doctors would still regulate their industry, and in a kinder, gentler fashion than its present governance. But the operations that got done would be those that are needed. And stupidities in the name of insurance would be not only not de rigueur but absurd.
There is the undeniable risk that perhaps unhappily for some the elimination of money might annihilate the advertising industry. After all, who would advertise if there wasn't money to be made in it? It is true that sectors of the ad industry would disappear. Who in his right mind, for example, would run an ad to sell a table, even his second one, when he could just give it to somebody who didn't have one? And would somebody who had just one table, if he were in his right mind, advertise to sell it because he didn't have enough money?
Truly, however, the ad industry can become the education industry; Madison Avenue populated by ed men. "The best message wins." (R) They can have real clients for a change, doing "real things for real reasons." (R) "Each word can be memorable in its own right." (R) And the ed men can stay at home more, lie less, live longer, love a lot, and stop sucking up to Phillip Morris.
Law is a worthy subject. Right now there are lawsuits being filed for no other reason than they make "economic sense." Good people are not defended because they can't pay, and bad people are because they can. Remove money from judgments and legal consideration and American jurisprudence becomes rational and fair. Include money in justice's deliberations and its decisions will always be skewed and therefore unjust.
There is the question, of course, if people don't take money in payment, who will do the work. The immediate answer is, the same person who has been doing it. Bankers, brokers, insurance blokes and bookies obviously wouldn't have to show up. They can get real jobs of any kind they want and have all the time in the world to learn a useful trade. There will be lots of people to take care of all the needed work. Bridges still need painting, but they don't need toll booths nor people to occupy them.
Anyone can figure out what jobs really need to be covered and what ones should be eliminated. For the most part people will be able to do ergonomically what they want to do; which is a bunch better than the way it is now with most people doing what they don't want to do because they need money, and unable to do what they're called to do or love to do because no one will pay them to do it.
The general rule regarding priorities is that they don't matter. Rules are always qualified by safety, courtesy and wisdom. Stupidity has no effect so it's silly to engage in it. Time is here as far as the eye can see, so don't be concerned about losing it. Except in matters of safety, courtesy and wisdom, where there's no time to be lost.
The only journalist to follow up on OUR first mailing was Richard Polito at the Marin IJ. The paper had done a story on my $cientology litigation earlier that year and Polito talked about me to the reporters involved with that story before we met. During our meeting he asked some good questions, which I answered, and then followed up with this letter.

Re: OUR PROGRAM
I've given some more thought to your questions regarding who would do the work, who would clean the sewers, who would bother to show up and so forth if what needed to be done was not done for money.
Initially it is predicted that everyone would experience both some relief and some enthusiasm. To not only not have to worry about money while working in the sewer but to not have to work in the sewer at all could not help but be a relief to any sewer worker who enjoyed neither the worrying nor the work. If someone did not enjoy the worrying but enjoyed the work he too would experience relief. In that no one hereafter need worry any longer it might turn out that sewer work could be as enjoyable as any other profession. If someone enjoyed worrying about money, then whether he enjoyed working in the sewer or not, clearly, as Ross Perot might say, money's elimination is not for him.
Initially as well, working for something different from money would be such a departure from the way things were that the present pervasive job boredom would have to give way to excitement. Since the elimination of money would occur on one day across the country, the population would be educated in advance of that day in the reasoning behind the elimination, and what to expect and how to function on their non-money-motivated jobs and in a moneyless society. The education process can itself produce a new enthusiasm for our jobs and lives.
If sewer work really was so distasteful or dangerous, the men and women who perform it should be the most adulated of our servants. If they are not paid money for what they do they will be seen for the heroes they are. Hence give them great vacations and make their faces household words.
It is far more important to give whomever is asked to do the job the materials with which to do it than to pay him or her money. That's the task of management, who can still manage without money, and undoubtedly more efficiently, and hence sanely, than present management, which pays homage to the false god, Bottomline.
Finally, regarding the American people's morality, and therefor ability to work for a higher reason, I remain convinced that in truth the real work done even now is done for that higher reason. And I remain convinced that we are moving into the Age of Wisdom when nationally and globally that higher reason will be understood, and will be strived for far more passionately than money ever was.
Please feel free to call at any time if you have any questions, or for any reason.
Organization of United Renunciants
And the only politician to respond to OUR mailing was President Clinton who sent me this very cool handwritten card.

Paid for by the Clinton/Gore '92
And then there's a little printer's bug which I can't read, and on the action side the President writes:
Thanks so much for your letter. I welcome your ideas. They will be carefully considered. I'm grateful you took the time to write.
I haven't again heard directly from Mr. Clinton, so I don't know the result of his careful consideration, but there's still plenty of time to hear from him before he leaves office. I was thinking he'd try to hire me as an easily underpaid economic advisor on one of his many teams.
Every morning when I read the paper, every night when I watch TV, and in between every time I look anywhere on the internet, I see big problems that I also see as resolvable if money is not thought of as the solution. Just think what the world might be like if the silliness that the economy has become during money's reign could be replaced, and peacefully, with something smarter, better and cheaper by money's disappearance.
On the $cientology problem, no court or government anywhere would let them get away with what they're getting away with if the money they use to get away with it was recognized as being worthless. Without money, courts and governments would be much harder to buy. All the money in the world has only bought global injustice.
For quite a while I worried that gamblers would raise the devil if there wasn't money to be gambled away. But now I believe that even this can be remedied in many ways. The non-gamblers, for example, could simply give the gamblers all the money. They can gamble all they want until one just gambler with all the money is left. That guy is the most unlucky, since he spent the most time winning all that stuff of no value. The luckiest gamblers are those who lose all their money the quickest.
The real poetry in the plan is that until there are sufficient renunciants to make renunciation effortless and overwhelmingly safe, you don't have to renounce or do anything. You can make as much money as you can as fast as you can afford to, and you should. You should make truckloads of the stuff, so that when OUR Day comes you'll have plenty worth renouncing.
OUR idea will certainly take care of the money-based copyright law stupidities we've all endured these past few years. But even before OUR Day dawns, feel free to copy any or all of this and pass it on, post it or publish it wherever you want.
