Work For All
is a hierarchy of human work: The lowest but most
urgent form of work is for sheer personal survival.
The highest form of work is improving the social order
including relationships with others and doing work
the soul must have.
Global Justice Movement honours peacemakers be they individuals,
churches, organisations or governments. Their efforts, however,
tend to be piecemeal and, at best, a late stage intervention
when things have already gone badly wrong. It is also, unfortunately,
too often the case that even an early stage intervention cannot
hope to succeed because the underlying causes of dissension
are much too deep-seated.
general truth, therefore, is that Peace,
and certainly long-term peace, cannot come about by itself.
Rather it is the result of properly structured societies in
proper relationships with each other. Those relationship,
moreover, are the result of the internal structure of societies.
Today’s ‘democracies’, for example, are
far from being true democracies yet it is generally agreed
that the chances of two such ‘democracies’ going
to war with each other are much less than war between one
such ‘democracy’ and a totalitarian state.
also have to beware of a trap – their laudable concern
to avoid war can sometimes lead them to support plutocratic,
authoritarian or totalitarian, even medieval, regimes of the
worst possible nature. Furthermore, it has been observed that
some peacemakers so vociferously uphold the rights of authoritarian
and dictatorial regimes that there can sometimes be doubt
as to whether those peacemakers have any genuine sense of
democracy or justice. Upholding the rights of a cruel regime
to kill and torture its own people is not just moral blindness
but, in some circumstances, may amount to a subtle racism
which assumes that the people of those countries are incapable
of any form of democracy.
it is all too easy to reason that war only comes about because
of the actions of evil men. Such reasoning, of course, is
a convenient way of ultimately blaming war upon everybody
else but ourselves. The truth, however, is different –
all war is directly, or indirectly caused by the structure,
or rather, malstructure, of whole societies and their interrelation
with each other. For that malstructure, and the failure
to alter or improve it, we are all responsible.
let it be said clearly — Peace Justice
is essentially something that arises from the implementation
of the other four Justices –
Money, Social, Economic and Environmental. Indeed,
tackling Peace in isolation from the other four Justices is
self-defeating. Effective peace-building requires a holistic
approach, embracing the whole gamut of our relationships with
one another – economic, social, cultural, humanitarian
and environmental – creating a multi-level security
campaigners who campaign solely for Peace, therefore, are
ineffective unless they also address the malstructure of societies.
Like everybody else, peace campaigners should always be prepared
to specify and openly declare an alternative structure for
then raises the question – is there any form of society
which is less fundamentally inclined to get involved in war?
Is it true, for example, that modern ‘democracies’
are much less likely to go to war with each other?
answer is difficult particularly because modern ‘democracies’
are not, in reality, very democratic. Indeed, they are based
on unfree market finance
capitalism which is unfree,
inefficient and unfair. It is unfree
because most people are in practice excluded from the acquisition
of productive capital. It is inefficient because ample supply
fails to generate adequate demand. It is unfair
because millions of people do not receive proper reward (and,
in the case of women, for example, often no reward at all)
as well as being excluded from the chance to have a second
income coming from capital ownership.
worst of all, the unfree
market system (being fundamentally based on ever-escalating
and unsustainable debt) is unheeding of the way it is now
being viewed by the poor countries of the world which, seeing
themselves as the eternal milch cows of the rich, are becoming
increasingly determined to do something to correct their invidious
GJM, of course, is giving the lead in creating Peace and it
is doing that by fighting for the true, genuine democracy
provided by Inclusive Justice. Indeed,
without Inclusive Justice, war is inevitable.
and independent nations
cannot be at peace with themselves and others unless they
are genuinely based on Inclusive Justice and, at the core
of that Justice is the need for a society to control its own
money supply. A nation which issues its own money is independent
and need never go to the IMF or the World Bank. It is absolutely
amazing that countries right around the world have allowed
themselves to be bamboozled into believing that money always
has to be borrowed from someone else. Yet they have been bamboozled
and, as a result, they not only have to repay the principal
but are burdened with compound interest as well. That is why,
throughout the world, country after country has built up huge,
ever-escalating debts. Consequently, those countries have
lost their independence
present scale of nations’ debt is the result of an institutionalised
conspiracy or, more precisely, the mother of all stings. By
a global deceit the banking system has been allowed to introduce
enormous swathes of credit money and then add interest on
top. All of which matters on a transcendental scale because
having to pay out, every day, every month, every year, astronomical
sums to those who usually live abroad, nation after nation:
cannot be independent, and
• cannot achieve a reasonable standard of living.
nations become much like Pakistan haris. A hari
is a debt slave. When a person borrows money for a funeral,
dowry etc. and the money is not quickly repaid, interest soon
takes the owed amount up to a level where it can never be
repaid. The debt does not die with the person, however. Rather
it continues as a family debt. Thus the debt bondage which
goes on over generations
nations, moreover, will never repay their debt, will always
be in poverty, and will always be in the power of rapacious
others. Unfortunately, even highly intelligent people gullibly
accept the present system. Those who dare to challenge in
any way, moreover, are dismissed as troublemakers.
sting is essentially able to operate because, every day, a
trillion dollars zooms around the world. Most it goes not
into productive investment but into the buying or selling
currencies, corporate shares, government bonds, futures (options
to buy things which might come into being in the future),
and derivatives (instruments based on some underlying financial
asset). A little of the money is actually invested in productive
enterprise, but most of it feeds a global casino with little
or no connection with the real world of wealth creation. As
to from whence the money comes, the answer is nowhere –
the banking system conjures it all up out of nothing.
Justice is appalled and demands that the newly created money
— society’s money — be put into new productive
investment with millions of new owners
throughout society. It is shocking that there
is little or no control over the banking system and its power
to create credit without bothering itself whether it is, or
is not, being put into proper productive capacity with widespread
it should be understood that true nationhood requires not
only a use of its own money supply on Global Justice principles
but also local ownership of its productive capital. An indebted
nation, particularly one whose productive enterprises are
owned by outsiders cannot ever be truly happy or independent.
flight – inwards
of the Five Justices will have a remarkable result —
inwards capital flight. At the moment, we are constantly told
that any proposal remotely touching on justice is certain
to cause capital flight from a country. However, in contrast,
the Global Justice Movement confidently asserts that the implementation
of its policies and Inclusive Justice will have the opposite
effect – capital flight inwards.
if there are to be prosperous, properly democratic and independent
nations, Global Justice must be introduced. And the quicker
that is said out loud, the better. In particular, it should
be shouted that, with Global Justice there will be capital
flight – inwards – as speculators realise that
a new, sound economy is being established, one that cannot
have crises engineered by people of bad faith. Should the
inward capital flight be undesirable in any way action can
be taken at the appropriate time.
point is that, at the moment, the unfree,
unfair and inefficient finance capitalist system bullies everybody
with the threat of outward capital flight. However, with the
implementation of Global Justice, the threat will be seen
to be nugatory.
to the Middle East, Kashmir and other danger spots
it is true that a people should have some land as a physical
and psychological base, the larger requirement is that they
have not only the basics of warmth, clean air, clean water,
food and housing but the means of earning those things for
themselves. Furthermore, people must be able to:
be respected, equal and free
• choose their own destiny
• fulfil their full emotional, intellectual and
a sentence, the danger spots of the world – more than
anywhere else – require the implementation of the Five
Justices – Money Justice, Social Justice, Economic Justice,
Environmental Justice and Peace Justice. Without them, the
prospects of long-term peace are remote.
