Michael Tellinger is a South African author, archeologist and politician
Tellinger is a proponent of Contributionism, a social movement based on the African philosophy of Ubuntu.
In 2012 he founded the Ubuntu Party in South Africa, based on his principles of Contributionism.
Ubuntu USA headquarters are located at Bolton Valley, Vermont.
The word ubuntu comes from the Zulu and Xhola languages, and can be roughly translated as "humanity towards others," and "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity. It commonly refers to an African ethic philosophy focusing on people's allegiances and relations with each other. The philosophy is mirrored in cultures around the world, particularly in Native American culture.
UbuntuUSA’s aim is to move from a money-driven society to a society driven by people, their talents and their passion for life where everyone contributes their natural talents or acquired skills to the greatest benefit of all in their community.
A move toward a world without money is a giant step toward higher consciousness and a highway to enlightenment. UBUNTU Contributionism is a blueprint for human prosperity in which money plays no part at all.
The immediate benefits of a world without money are simply astonishing, as all the negative aspects of life tend to disappear. The moment we remove our dependency on money in our lives, communities and society, everything changes for the better almost immediately. As we remove money from our reality we also eliminate the following:
Crime – Hunger – Homelessness –greed - Gluttony - Extortion - Hoarding - Debts - Accounts – Hierarchy control - Obstacles to progress
