Greetings all! Very nice to stumble upon this site and the idea(s) behind it. I live in El Centro, which is in the south east corner of California. I am currently working for a large farming outfit where we grow a lot of your standard type of produce. Farming food at this level of production is quite impressive as far as the ability to produce so much with a fraction of the work / energy as it does to produce food on smaller scale farms - - - they got it down to a science. - Down side of it is that this type of farming is viewed through the prism of money, which results in a lot of food going to waste due to the market.I have been involved with various types of agriculture throughout my life, my favorite was probably my exotic fruit farm in Hawaii,where I lived for about 17 years.
I was raised in the San Diego area. Dropped out of school after 9th grade and went to work full time at a plant nursery. I did do home schooling, finished all the classes except PE, which forced me into deciding to take the GED. One day, I had eaten a bunch of magic mushrooms, midway through a pretty good trip, Took the test anyhow...totally aced it. Kind of how a lot of my life went, able to mix work with mind altering substances, and still enjoy some success. - I no longer do any drugs including alcohol. I raised myself on reggae. Rastas have been warning people about the system for a long time, which I am grateful for. Without reggae, I might have grown to be as brainwashed as so many people are. Since age 13 I have always known and said, "Land of the free and home of the brave, is a lie, total BS! The U.S. has become the very thing it fought to get away from via the American Revolution"
In knowing of the system's fuckery, about 8 years ago I started investigating the workings of what is truly going on...exactly who, what, where, when and how this fuckery is produced. The scam of the monetary system and the systems of mind control are the two things that piss me off the most. Overall, I hate the system of things...I call it the Babylon system due to all the reggae I have listened to throughout the years along with the concept of fractional reserve lending potentially coming out of ancient Babylon. I am not a Rasta though, I do not belong to any group, I am me.
My wife died about 1 1/2 years ago at the age of 38. So these days I work and take care of my kids. In my free time. I am doing what I could not really do when my wife was alive. I am working on an internet project along with learning more and more about internet marketing with the intention of throwing rocks at the Babylon system - - - I have to say, the concept behind the project seems to be sound in that it accounts for the reality of what currently is and holds quite a bit of potential. My wife never liked the idea of me messing with the system or trying to stir things up. I am glad I kept that energy for her, but now that she does not need the attention, I am free to try and put all those ideas and mental images that have built up over the years into reality. - I have always had a creative mind, it is time to put it to use. ( oh, and I should mention, I view death as an illusion, so in part, fucking up their system, is for my wife too )
My understanding of Meritocracy is very limited, I have a plethora of questions. The one thing that attracted me to Meritocracy is that it seems as if there is some awareness of the powers behind the scenes along with some of the root causes of the fuckery humanity has been subjected to and continues to endure. - I want to learn more about the thinking behind Meritocracy, and perhaps if there is alignment in beliefs...scratch that, fuck beLIEf, if there is alignment in what is known, then I am pretty darn sure I could help you guys grow the Meritocracy movement, both in gathering more supporters as well as in fund raising.
