Help Make Dec. 21st, 2012
the Most Momentous Day in the History of the World !
The day we realize it is not about nations,
and the whole world is one.. oh, that will be the grandest of days”
December 21st 2012, one of the most awaited days in the history of the World is but a few weeks away. Some of you know that the misunderstood Mayan Calendar resets on that day. The misinformed have imbued Dec. 21st and the meaning of the Mayan Calendar reset with every sort of fantasy and misconception.
That last statement is in accord with what the anthropological and archeological records have to say about how the ancient Maya viewed the end of one cycle and the start another. As you read this article millions of people around the world are making preparations to observe and celebrate December 21st with themes of personal, collective and cultural renewal at the forefront.
The question about December 21st, 2012
is not — what’s going to happen — but rather,
What are we going to make happen ??
In an effort to make the most of the momentum carried by December 21st, Emergent-Culture.com has sounded the call for a Global Jubilee. A Debt Jubilee unifies vast swaths of the global population. No other social movement has such a broadsupport base ! 
A Jubilee refers to more than debt cancellation. It also refers to a time of celebration, healing, restoration and renewal. Themes that most people can relate to, and approve of. The themes associated with the Mayan Calendar’s reset are intimately related to the idea of a Jubilee in general.[1,2]
We are talking about hundreds of millions of people who are already supportive of a Debt Jubilee and hundreds of millions more who would readily join in to support once they are made aware of the effort. Debt cancellation is an easy subject to understand, and communicate.
We have something momentous
to celebrate and the global circumstances
surrounding this time couldn’t be anymore epic !
A Debt Jubilee has been voiced by various mainstream economists and academics in a number of high profile mainstream news outlets on several continents. Economic professionals and everyday people are recognizing that the only sane and humane wayout of the Global debt crisis is widespread debt cancellation.
Many have and many more are coming to the conclusion that widespread debt cancellation for individuals and collectives (sovereign, student debt) is the requisite first step toward the redress of our varied and numerous collectively shared problems.
The following groups are either already calling for a debt cancelling Jubilee(**) or they would happily get involved upon learning about the effort.
- Student Groups**
- Social-Environmental Justice Groups**
- Human Rights Movement
- Indigenous Communities
- “Third World” Countries**
- Labor Unions
- Enlightened Economists
- The Indebted Population
- Peace and Anti-War Activists
- The Jewish Community**
- The Christian Community**
- The Islamic Community**
- Cultural Creatives 200 Mil. Worldwide**
Organizations actively pursuing a Debt Jubilee.
- Jubilee USA Network
- Jubilee Debt Campaign – England
- Jubilee South
- Jubilee Australia
As you can see there is wide spread cross cultural support for debt cancellation and the potential for even greater support is evidenced by the shared values between the various groups.
October 16, 17, and 18 of 2009 saw over a 173 Million people gather around the world to voice support for an end to poverty. That gathering broke the world record for the largest mobilization in history!
The event was sponsored by the U.N.’s Millennium Campaign, and was therefore more symbolic than anything else, as it did not provide for an action plan. It was a toothless demand to world leaders that they take steps to reduce poverty.
What are we to expect from the U.N.? It does the bidding of governments, not the people. It should be clear to those paying attention to world and national affairs that we the people are on our own. It is we the people who must take action to deal with the mounting collective challenges before us.
The Governments of the world have proven themselves useless to create a sane and just world! In fact it is their very polices and so called law and order schemes that are to blame for most of the world’s collective woes and in particular the all consuming debt crisis.
It is we the people, a collaborative coalition of justice seeking collectives and individuals who will forge the pathways to a better world for all concerned. It is we the people who must absolve ourselves of our individual and collective debt as the first step toward greater and brighter accomplishments !
The world’s governments are owned by the banking establishment, thus we can never expect them to take steps to reduce poverty, or debt for their purpose is to induce it in their populations and to create it themselves.
The current banking-financial system derives its vast illegitimate wealth from incentivized debt induction schemes and a fraudulent monetary-banking system. A 16 Trillion dollar debt for the US Government alone ! A debt paid by you the unwary tax payer. A debt created largely by imperial wars where a few profit at the expense of the many.
The “Poverty Eradication Gathering of October 2009″ demonstrated a massive degree of support for the idea of poverty reduction, and any honest economist knows that the first step to do so under our current debt laden conditions is debt cancellation. But the U.N. program makes no mention of debt absolution.
Therefore it is up to the people to take the necessary measures to restore sanity to our beleaguered planet and the first step is to unload our individual and collective debt (sovereign, student debt) in order to free up the resources needed to adequately begin addressing our most pressing collective problems. Now the question of when to begin the process.
December 21st, 2012
The first step is to sound the clarion call for “Year of Jubilee 2013″ ! Discussions around how to best go about the process of debt cancellation at the collective and individual levels must begin in earnest.
The Occupy Movement has already published The Debt Resistors Operations Manual, but the debt cancellation conversation must come to the forefront within the entire Social and Environmental Justice Community as the single most important first step in the process of bringing about restoration and relief to our communities.
Emergent-Culture.com is proposing that we bang the drums louder so as to encourage as many people and organizations as possible to observe December 21st with said themes in mind !
The purpose of which is…
- to sound the Clarion Call for a Year of Global Jubilee 2013 !
- to catalyze greater global participation toward the creation of a better world !
- to honor the past and to celebrate the start of a New Cycle of Time !
- to inspire collaboration on a scale never before seen !
- to draw the world’s attention to our most pressing collective problem. !
* A record breaking mobilization would get a great deal of press coverage. We wouldnot be protesting, blocking traffic or smashing windows.
We would be gathering in such a way as to set the stage and example for the next phase of human cultural evolution !
Emergent-Culture.com implores of those reading this call to action to get involved in the outreach effort by contacting as many people and organizations as possible with this proposal. Outreach Kit further down.
December 21st offers the Social and Environmental Justice Community a unparalleled opportunity to advance our agendas in a very powerful way !
Our hope is that you will contribute what you can to help make December 21st, 2012 one of the most momentous days in the history of the world !
