I have a negative thought about basic income as it is at the moment. The biggest reason is that discussion about financial source has not been held. And furthermore, I feel that earthlings’ awareness for work is still immature. As a matter of fact, this article made me more strongly think so.
I have picked up this article once. I quote more sentences from the original article than before. I really understand Mr. Michael Tellinger’s explanation about Ubuntu contributionism in a conversation with Mr. David Wilcock. However, my opinion is that given the awareness of earthlings, what he tries to do sounds like Utopia and it is not practical.
In the conversation, Mr. David Wilcock asks questions about what he naturally has doubt. Regrettably, however, Mr. Tellinger does not give any proper answers to any questions.
The world described in a famous song “Imagine” by John Lennon could be realized if there were no bad people on earth. Reading Mr. Tellinger’s answers, I felt the same way as he does.
Let me take an example. Mr. Wilcock askes: “What if some guy goes around raping women at knifepoint? In response to the question, Mr. Tellinger just says: “Communities govern themselves.” The real issue is how to deal with brutal crimes committed by outsiders. Is there any political organization in a village? In a society where everything necessary is provide with only a few hours’ work, I wonder who would be willing to achieve such a dangerous task as a policeman.
In the latter half of the article, Mr. Tellinger says: “If our political party advocating Ubuntu contributionism wins in the local municipal election in Africa, we will immediately implement the Ubuntu system, shut down the capitalist system and liberate all of us.” In my opinion, if one local community without intelligence agency or army should achieve success, spy elements would infiltrate the community and assassinate all leaders, and the Darkness would completely took over the community. There are many people on earth who try to put themselves above an organization to control others.
Libya was destroyed in no time. It is so easy for the Dark forces to destroy a local community. I wonder what kind of countermeasure against such sabotage they are going to take. Would it be all right if people who maintain public order in the village are in the same position of mere volunteers as ordinary citizens are? Is it possible to maintain security by forming a vigilance committee whose members go on patrol for two hours a day? It seems to me that such an issue has not been realistically discussed. In a word, they just talk about Utopia.
I think that if there is the most realistic means to reform the society, it is to determine the maximum wage. Secondly, it is necessary to reform the financial system radically. I think that people need to change their awareness of work through making such changes.

Excerpt from Sphere-Being Alliance – March 4, 2016 –
Cosmic Disclosure: UBUNTU AND THE BLUE AVIANS’ MESSAGE Part 2 Season 3, Episode 9
DW: <snip> The interesting thing now is with this special edition episode, we've also brought in Michael Tellinger, who was specifically named by the Space Program Alliance because his Ubuntu contributionism system, they said, is a blueprint for an entirely new way of living on Earth that will be in much greater harmony, where the goods and services that we need can come about in a loving, co-creative fashion rather than in one that involves destructive competition. <snip>
But people believe it, that if you don't have a competitive, capitalist system, that the need for money, the need to earn money and to procure money or else you will starve, is the only thing that lances the boil of human selfishness and greed that would otherwise make people want to live off of others and not contribute to the system. How do you address that?
MT: Well, once again, that statement comes from within a capitalist system. The moment you don't have money, where that doesn't even enter the equation. <snip> When you start working in a structure of collaboration and cooperation, and not in competition-- <snip> Democracy is part of the problem. <snip> Capitalism, democracy, competition, the money system-- <snip>. Until we get rid of that, we can't level the playing field and create a united community that actually works towards a benefit of all. <snip>
DW: Oh, Michael. Hang on a second. People are going to be sitting around with their phones. They're not even going to look you in the eye. They're not going to want to do any work. They're going to just be sitting there twiddling their thumbs. This doesn't sound practical.
CG: There's going to have to be a transitional period. And a-- what's the opposite of indoctrinating a person?
MT: Liberating a person.
CG: Liberating people's minds. <snip> There's going to have to be a catalyzing event <snip> , a global economic collapse. People are going to be very upset. They're going to realize this has been a giant Ponzi scheme run by criminals. And all of these people that are supposedly in the democratic system that they voted for have been in the pockets of these people the whole time. It's just been a big scam. When the sleeping masses realize this, that's going to be a catalyst for them to want to know more. And then this is when a lot of document dumps are going to happen. A lot more information is going to come out. And don't you think that's going to stimulate people to be open to new ideas? <snip>
MT: <snip> Pretty much everyone alive on this planet knows that something is wrong. <snip> Are you happy with your life? <snip> The answer is 100% no, guaranteed. 100%.
MT: <snip> So clearly, something is dramatically wrong. <snip> And now we just got to present a new system. <snip>
DW: I'm hearing a lot of beads and sandals, feel-good platitudes. I'm not hearing practical things, though. I'm just hearing a lot of philosophy right now.
MT: <snip> I believe that the way to do this is to go into the small towns and small villages where you can reach all the people. <snip> You <snip> and then become the model for this new way of thinking and the new way of acting and the new way of creating abundance for themselves, thriving. How do you do this? Well, you can do this by bringing a lot of money into a small town. The other important thing is to say, we're going to have to use money to free ourselves from the money. <snip>
So people that are out there and saying, oh, Tellinger, you're a fraud. <snip>
We are creating a new reality for ourselves. <snip> the whole Ubuntu contributionism system is based on establishing a number of diverse community projects within small communities that benefit that town. <snip> And each one of those community projects is then worked. Everybody works for a few hours a week on one of those community projects. <snip> We are not creating self-sustaining communities. <snip> We create so much of what we do that we can make it available to everyone around us, either by selling it or making it available for free.
DW: If the Space Program releases technology where you can create any material item or good or food that you want-- you just hit the button and you got it-- how would that factor in? <snip>
MT: That's a really good question. It's something I've thought about quite extensively. And this is where individual humanness actually comes in. While I might want to use the replicator to make me a pot of whatever, I actually enjoy the art of cooking. I enjoy making a wooden cabinet. <snip> And we are each born with very specific and unique talents. <snip> So you can choose to use a replicator to make you a pair of pants. But I think you're getting a lot more joy by talking to your mother or your granny or the tailor to make a beautiful new sets of clothes for you. <snip>
So we create a political party that actually says something completely different. <snip> We're going to shut down the Federal Reserve System and create a People's Bank as an interim that issues money for the people, tax free and interest free. <snip> So it actually starts serving the people to put into place, in the interim phase, all the community projects and the public works that we need so that you can release the people from their prisons in their metropolitan areas.
DW: Doesn't it seem like things are already kind of leading this way? Look at the number of people who will make their own YouTube videos. They know they're never going to make money on it. <snip> Why are they doing it? Because they want to be seen as socially valuable. <snip>
MT: Absolutely. Really, what you just said there, David, is critical. <snip> -- when you wake up in the morning, and you know, as Corey said, everything you need is provided for. <snip> There's too much food, too much technology, too much fabric, too much anything. <snip> All you have to do is contribute a few hours a week towards the community projects, and the rest of the time is yours. <snip> How that will evolve, I don't know yet. But the communities will decide how that's going to evolve. But what it results in, that most of the time you have in the week is your own. And you can then express your own talents, whether you're a painter or a sculptor or a musician or a horse breeder or an engineer or a scientist. It doesn't matter what you do. <snip>
CG: What a world.
MT: So when you wake up in the morning with a smile on your face because you know you don't have to get up, get dressed in a suit and a tie, and sit on a train or a bus or ride a bicycle in the rain or the cold or the wind to go to a stinking job. <snip> You get everything for free.
DW: What if some guy goes around raping women at knifepoint? What are you going to do with him?
MT: Well, that's one of the frequently asked questions. <snip> the Ubuntu model, is to move away from a centralized government. Communities govern themselves. <snip> They'll set up a new legal system, guidelines as to the behavior. <snip>
CG: So you're not talking about, like, a centralized government ideological system in that aspect. Different regions that have their own moral compasses and—
MT: <snip> And there's a lot to discuss, obviously. <snip> The community will elect its own council of elders that will then be the guides for the community. And they'll decide daily and hourly and minute-by-minute what is best for the community, not what's best for me. <snip> I call this a minority-run system. <snip> There are an infinite number of minorities. There are those that look after butterflies and those that care about peach trees and the soil and the clouds and whatever. <snip> Every minority will get all the tools, all the technology, all the support, all the labs, all the research, everything you need to do what you're supposed to be doing for your community. That's why you can call this a minority-driven system. <snip>
DW: So the cesspool gets clogged up, right? The sewers are clogged. Nobody wants to go into the sewer. What do you do then?
MT: Great. I love it. It's just beautiful, where it's just one of the frequently asked questions. <snip> when I do the workshops and I bring up this as a question, guess what happens? There are always two or three people that put up their hands. I'll shovel the crap. <snip> But it goes a lot further than that. <snip> So whoever is on duty for that week to look after the sewers will go and unclog the sewers. <snip> So the amazing thing is that for every crazy Michelangelo or Leonardo da Vinci, there are 1,000 crazy young chemical engineers who are passionate about solving the sewage problem. And they will come up with systems to solve the sewage problem.
DW: When I was in high school, there was probably about 20 jocks who were always on the morning announcements. <snip> Everybody else, <snip> all marginalized. Never got any recognition, never got their name on the announcements. How do you avoid cliques and good ol' boy clubs, where <snip> just a few names are getting all the attention?
MT: <snip> Laziness is not human nature. <snip> Human nature is to create. <snip> -- the talent that you're born with. And that gets beaten out of us in the school system. <snip> your schooling system-- which obviously we're going to have to do completely. <snip> So when you grow up in a united community, where everything is available to everyone all the time, you're not worried about who-- you love those people around you. <snip> It's about what you do as an individual that drives you, that you'll be respected and loved for by your community. <snip> And this is where it gets really interesting, when you start understanding the impact of who we become in our communities.
DW: When I came over here from the airport, there was a lady driving the shuttle bus named Teresa for Alamo. She's got two jobs. She works at Delta, she works at Alamo. She's working 16 hours a day. <snip> if she does the overnight shift, and she's sleeping from 2 o'clock to 4 o'clock in the morning.
MT: That's disgusting.
DW: <snip> But when I talked to Teresa, it turns out that she went to Haiti. <snip> And if she could afford it, she wants to go back to Haiti and create something like a business for all-terrain vehicles where people can drive around, enjoy themselves, do something that contributes to the common good. Anytime you find somebody in one of these dead-end jobs, if you to them about their dream, they got a dream. <snip>
CG: I'm sorry--is this something that people can begin to practically implement in whatever country they are right now on a small scale? And is there a place where they can learn more about it <snip> these social experiments and show others? <snip>
MT: Proof of concept is critical. But this brings me back to what happens in community projects. First of all, to set up a community project costs money. <snip>. But then to manage them and actually let them become successful so they bring an income, so that they start bringing abundance into the town, first with money, and then that money keeps upgrading and improving. That is where it normally falls down because as an individual like myself, I end up running out of money every time we start to get out of the starting blocks. So this is why I need to bring it back to the political platform. <snip> So we basically now are going-- in 2016, we have the South African local municipal elections. And I'm using this as the catalyst, the spearhead for the global Ubuntu movement. Now, we've got members in more than 200 countries. <snip> So we need to raise enough funds to contest successfully the local municipal election. <snip> if we win one municipality and the four or five towns who make up that municipality, we will shut down the capitalist system and implement this Ubuntu system, contributionism system, virtually overnight. <snip> One little town can bring down the whole banking and money control system of humanity and free us all. <snip> And our main promise to the people for this election is free electricity for all. <snip> Everybody gets free electricity in return for giving three hours a week to one of the community projects. <snip> You don't have to give up your job. <snip> What we did in Australia just recently, in Byron Bay, there was a statistician there. And he did a calculation. And this is what he said. <snip> as an example. 5,000 people, three hours a week, it's 15,000 hours of labor a week. Right? <snip> He did the numbers, and he said one year of people contributing three hours a week in this system, one year of this is equivalent to 31 years of people working eight hours a day as slaves in the current system. One year to 31 years. Those are the ratios. So within a very short space of time, we'll turn out community into a community of unimaginable abundance. We'll have so much food. And then you decide how this unfolds. <snip>
DW: Well in America, something like this happened after the Depression, <snip> where these large social causes mobilized the public, and they got involved in public works projects. And people were really inspired. And that was the last time that America really had a manufacturing boom. And then when we expect everybody else to do all the work for us and we're going to import everything, it crumbles from the inside.
MT: What it does to our town and our community, instantly turns into an attraction for anyone who wants to create, invent, and use their skills to serve themselves and the rest of the people. <snip> All you have to do is make your business <snip> And you retain one third of whatever we produce and sell. <snip> it works on all levels-- with farmers, with industrialists, manufacturing, anything.
CG: Well, I can tell you, everything you've said pretty much interweaves with what the Alliance has been saying, what the Blue Avians said in their message. And what they've said is that this is the wave of the future. <snip>
MT: Well, thanks, Corey. <snip> The transition from where we are now to living in this world of abundance is so simple. It is so much simpler than most of us could have ever imagined. But most of us keep tripping ourselves up <snip>
Things are difficult. You've got to work hard. No. Put that out of your mind. We're going to rid ourselves of the money. We're going to create a beautiful future of abundance for ourselves.
