This will require we re-evaluate the meaning of value and begin
organizing production in this new way.
We will need a way to discuss and conclude the shape of our organizational form.
I have completely original approach to this problem that solves many
problems simultaneously - maybe the most noteworthy is full-steam
production and complete investor satisfaction without the usual
troubles of profit-seeking.
After we understand how we must organize, we will then need real
property ownership in land and tools to create an agriculturally-based
"Production Arena" which we will use to generate the material needs of
the participants and so allow us to become self-hosting without the
need to pass tokens (use money) within that arena. Think of this as a
"Basic Outcome" - a play on the intent of a "Basic Income" brought
about through reorganized production.
We can achieve this through a modified form of crowd-funding I call
And we will also need people to do any work that is not considered
'play', for which I also have a solution.
Here is an attempt to describe the approach I envision, please suggest
1. Consumers become real co-owners when the micro-invest just enough
to gain the property needed to produce what they predict they will
need. This is a bit like crowd funding, but the investors become real
property owners in the Production Arena. Strangely, this means the
product does not need to be sold because it is already in the hands of
those who need it and so the Price they pay as consumers is simply the
Costs they paid as owners and so Profit is 0 (actually it is undefined
because the transaction is missing). This means external governments
cannot collect sales tax on the missing transaction. See
athttp://Wikipedia.org/wiki/Imputed_rent for a partial explanation.
2. Workers also receive co-ownership in the land and tools used to
produce that which they need (not necessarily that which they have
skill and desire to 'operate') when they commit promises to work in
the future. This is a sort of "work bond" that eliminates traditional
wages and puts workers on equal footing with other investors. This
means external governments cannot collect income tax because there is
no transaction to tax. See http://Wikipedia.org/wiki/Imputed_income
3. Each co-owner may do whatever they like with their own surplus, but
if they just leave it in one of our storehouses, it will be sold to
those with insufficient ownership for a profit, but will then treat
that overpayment as an investment from that payer so that each
consumer also incrementally gains the co-ownership needed to supply
them with the products they need in the future. This also means the
growth of that business is autodistributed to those willing to pay for
4. Any subgroup must be able to secede from the group for any reason
while retaining their portion of the property, or when the property is
not realistically divisible, able to sell their portion. This is an
attempt to solve the Tyranny of the Majority problem.
Thank you for your consideration.
I hope we can work on this together.
