The Peace & Plenty Festival will tackle how we make the changes we need to to create a sustainable planet.

Plenty to go round

How do we make the changes we need to to create a sustainable planet? Christopher F McIlrath is part of the Peace and Plenty Festival, who are tackling this head on in a series of presentations and workshops. He spoke with The Echo about the upcoming event.

What is the Peace and Plenty Festival all about?

Intelligent highly informed people designing a sustainable management system for our planet.

For hundreds of years a very few people have been busy guiding and controlling the people of Earth by issuing paper and book-entry money from nothing and by control of the media and politicians. Since the Second World War these few elite families have cranked up their control, as warned by Eisenhower in his final ‘Military Industrial Complex’ speech as US president: ‘We annually spend on military security alone more than the net income of all United States corporations… this conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new..the total influence – economic, political, even spiritual – is felt in every city… we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications…[for] the very structure of our society… we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist… [in]endanger[ing] our liberties.’

Now we face extinction as stated so wisely by school children (front page Echo 5 Dec).

What is EMR and how does it affect us? 

Electro-magnetic radiation from Wi-Fi and mobile phones and towers is proven to be harmful to humans – cell deformation. Recently Byron Shire Council voted unanimously to refuse consent for the mobile phone tower in Wilsons Creek after being informed by local group ECSFR of the dangers and their liability.

You have a session presented by Denis Cooney on time travel and global currency reset; what’s that all about? 

Denis Cooney presents a summary of the vast evidence of time travel being utilised by the US military – he names and quotes several people who have done time travel to affect the future. The Global Currency Reset is soon to come because of the failure of the current entirely fraudulent system where ‘There is no limit to the amount of credit the trading banks create from nothing’ – a verbatim quote to me from the official spokesperson for the Economic Research branch of the Reserve Bank of Australia. The ‘reset’ is a new and stable fair system where the equivalent value (but no more) of all goods and services in the marketplace within each country is distributed equally as a gift to everybody. That way people can buy what they need and there is no inflation because only enough credit/cash is distributed to buy what is for sale. Inflation is when there is more credit and cash than goods and services available.

What are peace and sufficiency and how would they make our world different? 

When the people have what they need for a modest but comfortable life there is almost no crime. This is achieved by equal distribution of wealth. Those who want more get it by providing goods and services to consumers. 

How do people come to your festival? 

Next driveway past Macas Camping Ground (same property) is The Funny Farm (festival venue), 1234 Main Arm Road, Upper Main Arm.

Is it camping? 

Some camping is available at The Funny Farm and more at Macas Camping Ground.

What should they expect from the three-day immersion in off-the-grid thinking? 

The certainty that if we work together for sane benevolent management of Earth, we will get it. The current malevolent system is enabled by officials who are human (if we act before artificial intelligence goes to its logical conclusion) and humans can recover their humanity when properly informed. This was demonstrated when the long Salazar military dictatorship in Portugal was displaced in a single night by 20 officers and their men with virtually no blood lost in 1974.

The Peace & Plenty Festival at The Funny Farm, 1234 Main Arm Road runs
for three days from Thursday at 10am daily. $20 per day or $50 three-day pass.
