Transition Concept


Pre amble.

The basic tenant of this transition is to transform our existing  consumer orientated, debit/credit management system ,to a free, sustainable network of self-reliant communities, existing within a flexible and cooperative, global system of self-management. 

The core tenants are community and sustainability, individual freedom and social equality, with free access to goods and services, and free access to decision making processes and manufacturing facilities.

The method is simple and clear. We, as a nation through our government and our monetary power, use taxation and the method known as “ quantitive easing”, to transform our communities into open sourced, self-sustaining, networks of free people, in a social landscape of respect and co-operation, where all people have free access to the means to thrive.

The responsibility of the community. To allow free access for all people within the community, and of those in need, of the following.  Heath and social care.  Food. Housing. Transport. Communication. Education. Means of production. Safe passage.

The Responsibilities of the individual. To aid others who are in need of safety, shelter, food, comfort, healthcare, and knowledge to the best of our abilities. To respect other beings. To at least try and give the community as much as you take from the community.

Transition

Transition will use a task force. The task force for local and regional management solutions will be given funding and assistance to create and apply local and regional management systems. All those working within the management system, including co-ordinators, programmers, skilled, semi-skilled, and unskilled will be paid by the government a good living wage, and the outcome of their productivity: power, food, etc will be free to all within the community.

Year 2 -3 implementation of the above.

YEAR 4 – 5. Summary of progress: By now all individuals will have free access to the things they need to thrive: sustainable housing, food healthcare, education, communication and transportation and data, provided by their servers, the communities. All employees working for the servers will be enjoying a good living wage, alongside those working in the private sector, but all services provided by the community servers will be free at the point of access. The difference between private and community sector will now be more apparent and the goods and service provided by the private sector will be superfluous to actual human need.  Assist and facilitate in integration of private sector and community workers  where needed, drawing attention to environmental data, social concerns and psychological factors.
