In our current capitalistic consumerism era products are specifically made to last only for a specific (short) time; then they break and you have to buy a new one. Look at our televisions, refrigerators, computers, bikes, coffee makers, furniture, mp3 players... In the 50s, 60s items were produced to last 'for ages'; not any more - to keep money flowing (into the pockets of corporations) the life span of products is shortened, by using inferior materials or even by deliberately engineering them to fail at a specific time frame.
At the expense of the environment. And the environment is we, is the animals, plants, atmosphere, the earth…
There is no need for this other than profit and money. As the 50s and 60s show, we are capable of producing high quality functional products and so we will in an Equal Money System. We will make sure all products are designed and fabricated in outstanding quality that will last a life time. And made with care and love.
Also: there is no need for the continuous introducing of new models; new models of the same products with just a slight adjustment or (pretended) improvement - like PlayStation and Nintendo, computers, washing powders and cosmetic lotions, claiming to be even better or more exciting than the previous; just deceit and manipulation to make more money by making you believe you can’t do without. In an Equal Money System we will see to it that products are of highest quality and functionality possible, in what we know now and only when new, significant information/techniques is available that is in the interest of all, the design will be improved.
One or two high quality functional models of one product will do - we do not need hundreds of different models from different brands. The competing will end because the money making will end: all effort, skills, knowledge and ingenuity will now be joined to bring forth products that are best for all.
So - no profit making, no deceit. We will not allow any waste of resources nor will we allow the production of items for the sake of money making, profit and consumerism.
We Destonians stand for the removal of this Money-Profit-God from the face of the Earth that always place money first and beings needs last. By implementing a new system, Equal Money, every single human being on this Earth will be provided with the basic needs, like food, housing, clothes, education, health care – equally. No one will have more or less. Removing the fear of survival (where money and profit comes in and with that in-equality because some have it all, and most have nothing: no food, shelter, medical care, education…) because survival is been taking care of. We will be free to express ourselves as we are. And profit making will be something of the past – gone – exit – basta
