2011 - Venice Tourist Attractions - Biennale: Art or Self-Deception?

Yesterday I was in Venice with Barbi, visiting the famous biennale art exhibition where artists from all over the world are chosen to display their works of art and are also given awards for their efforts. One of the awards went to a German artist who tried to help a local community in Africa by building them basic life support facilities like hospital and houses, but he died of lung cancer before the project was finished. They showed the videos of the construction project from Africa and of him explaining his vision for the local community, they also designed a room with an African atmosphere, presenting everything as an art piece. So obviously a lot of people were "touched" by this artist and what he wanted to do, which is a complete self-deception. Why? Let's be self-honest:

Let's first have a look at why death of this artist made his work a lot more popular and "heart-touching" for a lot of people. If we look at how many others are trying to help those in need in a similar way today, there is almost nothing to be heard of them and no one dares to help them to come up with solutions for our common global problems, or give them an award. But when one of such people dies, now that's a great entertaining story for the wealthy, who have the time to "notice" it and use it for self deceiving entertainment. They go: "Oh, he was such a good man! What a sad story, he is a great inspiration to us, what a piece of art! Let's give him an award!", and the next day or even 10 minutes after that, they absolutely don't give a shit anymore about the artist, his art, his work or all the facts about the abuse on this world that the artist exposed and tried to correct and do something about it. And these "inspired observers of art" don't even realize that they themselves are a part of all this abuse and that they themselves help to perpetuate it every day. So, while this artist actually tried to do something about the world starvation and abuse of life (let's not focus right now on the fact that his solutions were a complete failure because he didn't consider all the facts of reality, but just his own ego desire while doing it), most of other artists just expose the abuse and horrors that we as people accept and allow in this world every day and don't even bother to look for and present a solution for these problems.

Now we at Desteni are all about practical solutions to make this world a better place, best for all actually, and we already have a lot of practical solutions that are proven to work on an individual level. Do we get any awards? Of course we don't because we're not making a show for the rich people who want to entertain themselves with "heart-touching" stories and art pieces. The real art is to be self-honest and to constantly correct self to do what is Best for All Life, everything else is just an entertainment and a waste of time, because people try to deceive self and avoid self-responsibility by, for example, visiting Venice Biennale and have a good entertaining life while most of the world suffers because no one gives a damn. Oh sorry, we do give a damn at an art exhibition where we see a German artist trying to do something and then dieing doing it. Yes, that is very touching and entertaining and those 5-10 minutes when we look at his art we actually give a damn in our MIND. How about DOING something about it PRACTICALLY? Don't say you don't know what and how when I explain to you the second time that we at Desteni already have and apply solutions that are Best for All and that will ensure a Dignified Life for All. It is time for use to get self-honest and stop deceiving ourselves. Explore the Equal Money System and the Desteni'I'Process course, they are our way to a world that is Best for All Life in all ways.

Of course Venice, the city on water, is a big entertainment in itself for all of us top 10% rich people who can afford to visit it and don't have to worry about money, hunger and abuse every day. Imagine for a minute how much trash is produced by millions of tourists that come to Venice every year to have a fun experience and enjoy the spending of "hard earned" money. Most of the products that end up as trash are being produced in the poor countries of the world where modern slaves still work up to 12 hours a day, so that we, the top 10% rich people of the world, can buy a souvenir or some other piece of trash in order to feel "happy". And still we are not even close to happy, because we are always limited by money, even if we have it too much. Why? Is it any good if we have loads of money when others don't? Just look at all the absurds and unacceptable things that exist everywhere around us, just because there isn't enough money for everyone. Crime, poverty, poor products, poor infrastructure, miserable people, dangerous decaying buildings ... We can see all of this, not just in Venice, but everywhere. What good is it when you are rich and then have to worry all the time about someone robbing you or killing you just for some change or in some other way taking the money away from you because we allow competition? In an Equal Money System we will ensure everyone a Dignified Life by unity and working together instead of competition and so we will be able to start to trust each other, knowing that wherever we go, we will be safe and able to take care of self because all of the people will have enough money to live in Dignity and no one will be able to take that away. And with this we will be able to sort out all of the above problems and even more. We will have time to do what we enjoy, to alway produce the best possible things that enrich our lives and make it easier. No one will care about souvenirs and similar trash as one will realize that we are all able to visit any place we want and when we want it, because money will no longer be our limitation, but a tool for making our life easier and enjoyable.



Another example of how self-deceptive we as humans are is this: When we were waiting for our boat to get back to the mainland we observed some black people that are trying to survive by selling purses and souvenirs and such on the streets to the passing tourists. They are mostly migrants from Africa and other countries so they have no other choice but to try and survive in ways like this. Of course street selling is prohibited by law in Italy as sellers don't pay any taxes because they barely get enough money to survive. Then some policemen came and start chasing these people up and down the streets, trying to scare them away and make them pay for the "crime" of trying to survive. And what did most of the people (tourists with money) do when they noticed this? They watched and laughed and had a good time. Exactly what they came to Venice for, isn't it? To have a good, happy and entertaining time because they can while others are poor and in pain and while the poor slaves from all over the world enabled us, the rich tourists, to live with enough money to do so. Aren't we great? Let's give ourselves some awards for our life styles and presents for Christmas, we deserve to have a good time now and then for all our good work we're doing, don't we?

How about getting self-honest and taking back self-responsibility for what we do every day in order to start participating in solutions that are actually, practically Best for All and that will ensure a Dignified Life for all, ending all the abuse of Life once and for all?

Join Destonians, support the Equal Money System, make sure that we work together in building a world where everyone will be able to visit a place like Venice and have a good time all the time, because we All deserve it, not because we can laugh at other people that are less fortunate. Let us be the true artists of Life and perfect ourselves in the art of what is practically Best for All Life. Then everything we will make will truly be an amazing piece of art and our reward will be a Dignified, enjoyable life we will All be part of Equally.
