TROM Project Trailer

  • 0:02 - 0:06
    Almost all the problems in the world are created
    because of one single thing.
  • 0:06 - 0:11
    Just one! Five letters long, thousands of years old,
    and it is not m-o-n-e-y.
  • 0:14 - 0:17
    It creates the following issues:
  • 0:17 - 0:22
    poverty, famine, crime, violence, wars, poor education,
    pollution, climate change,
  • 0:22 - 0:28
    overpopulation, terrorism, social classes,
    corruption and bribery, water scarcity,
  • 0:28 - 0:34
    environmental destruction, abuse of animals,
    including humans, slavery and coercion, greed,
  • 0:34 - 0:37
    hoarding of resources, deforestation, massive waste,
  • 0:37 - 0:42
    stagnation of scientific and technological development,
    lack of health care, immigration,
  • 0:42 - 0:46
    territorial disputes, high stress and so much more.
  • 0:48 - 0:49
    That thing is TRADE
  • 0:49 - 0:55
    And trade gives rise to money, bitcoin, barter,
    exchanges of goods or services and so forth.
  • 0:57 - 1:01
    As long as there is a need for trade,
    most problems would still exist.
  • 1:01 - 1:07
    This is way trying to solve today's problems is not working,
    because many are forgetting about trade
  • 1:07 - 1:09
    or not even recognizing it as an issue.
  • 1:11 - 1:14
    If you stop people in Japan from killing
    blue whales for consumption
  • 1:14 - 1:18
    or traditional medicine or whatever, then fantastic.
  • 1:18 - 1:23
    But people in Cuba or Thailand or other parts of the world
    will do the exact same thing for profit
  • 1:24 - 1:27
    for their customers in Japan or for other customers.
  • 1:27 - 1:32
    Trying to ban everyone from killing blue whales is a great
    and nobel attempt yet quite unachievable.
  • 1:33 - 1:36
    And the black market will always exist
    even if you achieve that.
  • 1:36 - 1:41
    Because you didn't address the cause of the problem,
    you only dealt with the symptoms.
  • 1:42 - 1:45
    The cause is what drives people to seek for profit.
  • 1:45 - 1:49
    The symptoms are the acts that they do
    when seeking for profit.
  • 1:49 - 1:55
    In this case, people will still try to kill blue whales
    because there is a profit to be made in doing so,
  • 1:56 - 1:58
    And hence, there is no way you could ever stop this
  • 1:58 - 2:02
    unless you remove the cause behind
    their seeking for profit.
  • 2:03 - 2:04
    So think about this,
  • 2:04 - 2:09
    Let's say we have one trillion problems today
    and we attempt to solve 500 of them,
  • 2:09 - 2:11
    In the same way just described.
  • 2:11 - 2:16
    We would still be left with the same trillion problems
    as only the symptoms would be addressed
  • 2:16 - 2:19
    Rather than the cause generating the problems.
  • 2:19 - 2:23
    If we solve in the same way another two thousand
    or two million problems
  • 2:23 - 2:26
    There would still be one trillion problems left.
  • 2:26 - 2:30
    The math is not wrong, because it's an illusion
    that we solve problems in that manner,
  • 2:31 - 2:36
    since the force of trade, making people
    seek profit at any costs, will still exist.
  • 2:36 - 2:40
    And because of that, people will find
    ways to hijack any laws,
  • 2:40 - 2:43
    no matter how drastic and
    well implemented they are.
  • 2:43 - 2:47
    And so, problems will arise everywhere no matter
    how much you try and stop them
  • 2:47 - 2:53
    with this old and outdated approaches, because
    you fail to understand the cause of the problems.
  • 2:54 - 2:58
    This is similar to trying to find a cure
    for the diseases of old age,
  • 2:58 - 3:04
    Like Alzheimer disease, cardiovascular disease,
    cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, and so forth.
  • 3:05 - 3:11
    You can not find a cure for this diseases because
    they are a result of getting old, and everyone gets old.
  • 3:11 - 3:15
    So the only attempt to solve them is to first acknowledge
    that aging is the problem,
  • 3:16 - 3:18
    And that those diseases are the symptoms.
  • 3:18 - 3:23
    Aging is ingrained in our cultural consciousness
    as something that is natural,
  • 3:23 - 3:28
    But that notion is increasingly challenged today,
    with many doctors acknowledging that aging
  • 3:29 - 3:32
    is the source of most health problems
    and thus trying to tackle it
  • 3:33 - 3:35
    instead of focusing on it's symptoms.
  • 3:35 - 3:40
    In the same way, people can not imagine how we
    can live in a world with no trade, no currency,
  • 3:40 - 3:42
    no property, jobs and so forth.
  • 3:42 - 3:45
    But this notion is also challenged today by so many
  • 3:46 - 3:49
    And we are one of those who do that in great detail,
  • 3:49 - 3:54
    Because like in the case of aging, we do not see any
    other alternatives in solving today's problems,
  • 3:54 - 3:57
    other than getting rid of the need for trade,
  • 3:57 - 4:02
    like there is no alternative in solving the diseases
    of old age unless you tackle aging.
  • 4:03 - 4:08
    Therefore we spent years trying to describe in detail
    how a world without trade can function.
  • 4:08 - 4:12
    We are talking about a world where trade
    is obsolete and unnecessary.
  • 4:12 - 4:15
    This should be a world of abundance for all.
  • 4:15 - 4:18
    A world where people are accessing instead of owning,
  • 4:18 - 4:20
    where people work but have no jobs,
  • 4:20 - 4:24
    where everyone gets whatever they need
    and want without any trade involved,
  • 4:25 - 4:28
    without them needing to give anything
    in return for those favors.
  • 4:28 - 4:34
    This world would rely on volunteers, open-source projects,
    a scientific mindset and so forth,
  • 4:34 - 4:40
    That will have no unique tag attached to them, but
    instead will become normalities that need no label.
  • 4:40 - 4:44
    We are describing how changing today's infrastructure
    into a self-sustainable,
  • 4:45 - 4:48
    automated and autonomous and open-source one is a must.
  • 4:49 - 4:53
    Education is another essential aspect
    where people's values must change
  • 4:53 - 4:56
    for us to achieve such a world for all of us.
  • 4:56 - 5:01
    In this kind of world, as we showcase,
    we need no politics, countries,
  • 5:01 - 5:03
    police, currencies, armies and so forth.
  • 5:04 - 5:07
    But it takes a while to understand such
    ideas and this sort of approach.
  • 5:08 - 5:12
    This is why we made a huge 14 hour
    documentary explaining this direction,
  • 5:12 - 5:16
    together with a big e-book
    (The Monetary Game and Beyond)
  • 5:16 - 5:22
    where we elaborate more directly and in more detail
    on the problems and solutions that we must address.
  • 5:22 - 5:27
    We recommend both the documentary and e-book
    as they vital in order to properly understand
  • 5:27 - 5:29
    all of the TROM materials.
  • 5:30 - 5:35
    Use TROMSITE.COM as a free tool to educate yourself
    and others about this direction.
  • 5:35 - 5:38
    We have plenty of materials to choose from.
  • 5:38 - 5:40
    Help us get this message across!
  • 5:42 - 5:44
    Thank you very much!
