Question: Capitalism has allowed the average man of today to live better than the nobles of yesteryear. Yet the masters don’t seem particularly excited about the future of this system, or even of moving from a debt-based economy to a gold standard. Can you elaborate on this and what kind of economic system or life system they envision?
Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Washington, D.C. (USA) in 2019.
You cannot say that the average citizen today has a higher standard of living than the noble class in medieval Europe. Because the average citizen today still has to work for living, still has to do their own housework and bring up their own children instead of having 500 people do all the work for them. It is, of course, possible to take a one-sided view of capitalism and compare it to how it was 200 years ago and say, there’s much more wealth in societies today, and the average person of today is better off than the average person of 200 years ago. But is that because of capitalism or in spite of capitalism?
You need to recognize here that there are two separate elements here. Underlying everything is the economy itself, which is based on certain universal principles. You might call them natural laws. You might call them spiritual laws, or certain principles that are working in the economy. Then human beings have from time-to-time in different historical epochs come up with various ideologies or theories that they have super imposed upon the economy, wanting the economy to work a certain way. What you see going on here is simply this: the collective consciousness is being raised and has been in the process of being raised for a long time. As the collective consciousness is raised, the economy will grow. It’s an inevitable follow up of the raising of the collective consciousness. The economic growth you have seen primarily in the democratic world, over the past couple of hundred years, is a natural follow up of the raising of the collective consciousness. It is also a follow up of democracy and a more egalitarian society that gives greater opportunity to greater numbers of people.
Capitalism, however, is an economic system that at least when you talk about what has been called crony capitalism or monopoly capitalism, has the purpose of concentrating wealth in the hands of a small elite. What we have said before is that there is an alternative is to have no economic system. We are human beings are not creating a theory and super imposing it upon the economy, saying this is how the economy should work. Instead, you use the scientific process, and the incredible knowledge and tools that is available today, to actually determine how does the economy work based on these natural principles?
I can assure you that if you could take a team of economists and people from other sciences, put them together and have them all be neutral and have the goal of discovering these universal principles for how the economy works, they could do it. The reason why this hasn’t happened, the reason why there hasn’t been a theory that comes out about it, is that the power elite have sabotaged this time and time again because they want to maintain monopoly capitalism. Get the power elite out of the equation, like Sanat Kumara said, all of the basis for a sustainable economy that isn’t focused on profit, but focused on serving all of the people are there, they are in place.
Why aren’t they working? Because the power elite is systematically sabotaging it. You will not have a natural economy as long as you allow the power elite to sabotage and monopolize. It cannot happen. It will not happen. It is not a matter of coming up with another system. It’s a matter of discovering the natural principles that make the economy work. This is doable. But the fallen beings will do everything in their power to prevent it.
