LAS VEGAS, Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When asked about the "Occupy Wall Street" movement, Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, expressed approval. But he said the protest doesn't go far enough.
"The only solution to the world's problem is paradism," he said in a statement released today.
Rael officially launched the societal concept of paradism in 2009, explaining it as a form of communism without a proletariat and without banks or money. Under paradism, everyone would share the benefits of science, technology and prosperity while still respecting the planet (see www.paradism.org).
"All those protesting now worldwide, like those in the OWS movement, are right to do so, but they don't offer solutions," Rael said in his statement. "Paradism is the solution, so I have asked that all Raelians around the world bring this solution to those protesting in the streets."
Rael has long predicted the fall of capitalism, an economic system driven by growth and in which competitiveness is praised and the accumulation of goods is encouraged.
In opposition, Rael explains that cooperation is the future of humanity, with everyone working for the good of everyone else. He states that in a paradist society, money would no longer exist, since money is the fruit of power and competition.
"We don't need money if everyone works for the good of everybody else and everyone helps each other," Rael explained in his statement.
Raelians say paradism is also an answer to those who predict that the fall of capitalism will bring generalized poverty and regimentation.
"There is no reason to fall into poverty, considering the level of technology we have now," Rael said. "If the right resources were spent on dedicating our current technology to the well being of all rather than on financing wars, we would have enough robots to do our work and enough food generated for all."
"The time for a world revolution is now," Rael concluded. "It's the only way to save humanity."
