We humans have always been the value this has to be brought forward not only in words but consciously as well. You are right Karl but the value does not lie in pearls nor in diamonds but in us.
Now for people in the alternative news realm this is not news, I've mentioned it several times but as life goes on events unfold and just highligths stuff that can't be ignored.
We work our hours and exchange them for electronical currency which sometimes if need be is pulled out from a ATM. So this value exchange system has quickly being forced upon us but is getting more obsolete by the day. We do consent to it otherwise it would change in an blink of an eye.
Many decades ago almost everyone worked the fields and the woods in order to exchange the labour hours for food and shelter directly. There was no middle man in form of Banks cause it was not needed. We traded directly with each other and everyone was fine until some schmuck came up with the ideas of IOU's.
From Wikipedia below.
An IOU (abbreviated from the phrase "I owe you") is usually an informal document acknowledging debt. An IOU differs from a promissory note in that an IOU is not a negotiable instrument and does not specify repayment terms such as the time of repayment. IOUs usually specify the debtor, the amount owed, and sometimes the creditor. IOUs may be signed or carry distinguishing marks or designs to ensure authenticity. In some cases, IOUs may be redeemable for a specific product or service rather than a quantity of currency.
1/3 of the US populace is on wellfare and still the Government is acting up as everything is fine!
Now on a personal note, I'm currently on sick leave which is for the first time in my life. I've worked for over 20 years and was never on sick leave. The irony is that I got my injury while enjoying my passion playing soccer.
So it was "desided" that I needed to rest in order to concentrate on other things than traditional work! Our Earth and we with it are transforming meaning we are creating something complete different. Trickery and deceit will not be able to operate or function anymore among some changes.
Giving the timing of events personally and globally there are huge things afoot. No, everything will not change in an blink of an eye cause people would go totally nuts if that would be the case.
Instead of working my hours and exchanging them to a salary so I can live, I'm currently earning money without "doing" ordinary work! This is a completely different value exchange than what I'm used to. I've seen others do it but I have not experienced it myself. Working in itself is not wrong but work in order to be able to live that is totally wrong.
The notion that there is not enough for everyone is so false just checkout how much we spent on our military and you see right away what I mean. We can feed and house everyone many times over but we need to do this. There is no scarcity and never was it's just away of keeping us in FEAR.
Individuals all around the world are seeing this and moving out of the hamster wheel. People have always done this but I think it will explode with new energy devices etc coming into our awareness.
This is just the beginning!
