"Masters of the Gyokku Ninja Clan, I feel that governments and large corporations limit my freedom, and hold me almost as a slave through money. I feel useless and I feel I will never reach my full potential, and that I am subjected to poisons that affect the mind and body."
Not many people realize that money is in many ways the antithesis of freedom, and a subtle tool of government oppression - it is used to keep humanity enslaved and chained. The problem with today's world is that people are caged, and do not even see that they are caged. There are more things than money that cage people, my brother - even the system of education prepares children for 'life in the cage'.
Many of us are - knowingly or unknowingly - bound by subtle chains. Almost everyone has to earn a living - for this one usually has to study, to get a degree. But whether you study or work, you might find that you have little time to spare. Indeed, that is the most subtle chain of all - increasingly, in our modern world, few indeed have the luxury of time. Read on, to know how the Gyokku Ninja Clan counters the chains that bind most of modern society...
Everyone of us has dreams of one sort or another. Yet many of us find that we have to balance our dreams with 'realities'. Usually, these realities are a lack of resources, money or time.
The answer is in this sword.... No, do not shake your head. It is the right of a master to speak in parables. Look at the sword below, created in the forges of the Gyokku Ninja Clan.
Look at the artistry, the exquisite beauty of it. Such a sword would be welcome in any museum of the world. It should cost a fortune. In the Gyokku Ninja dojo, such a sword costs roughly ten dollars to make - and that of the finest grade steel! A gi, the black uniform of the ninja, costs us just six dollars to manufacture - and this of cloth so tough that it lasts for years under the heaviest of use.
Now tell me if the Clan has not - to a great extent - defeated the need for 'money'? When the cost of everything is negligible, money becomes unimportant.
...THIS LESSON IN PHILOSOPHY CONTINUES AFTER THE MESSAGE BELOW...
The Gyokku Ninja Clan controls every stage of the production process for everything the Clan needs. Food is grown on Clan Lands. Excess is bartered for other necessities, but only for raw materials - the Clan always handles production of everything we need in-house. Clothing is created by clan members; weapons are created by clan smiths.
Quite simply. No one is corrupt. No one is selfish. No one is greedy. That's all it takes. Labors that are necessary, are shared - for example, the growing of food. Education is free because everyone who loves knowledge loves to teach. And when people love to teach, children love to learn from them.
And when all production is in-house, the profits of big businesses are not part of the price of a product! - which means that what we produce costs ONLY as much as the raw materials, nothing more.
In time we hope to make the entire system completely independent of the outside world. But for now, even in this form, it WORKS. Clan members pursue all that interests them - arts, science, writing, physical training. Anything.
