Throughout discussion we have realized that much of the corruption that has been caused within the systems that exist today stems from the involvement of representatives within those systems. While there is no way to ensure that representatives or authoritarians remain incorruptible, a solution to this would be to remove our current representative and authoritarian-based governances. This does not necessarily mean that we abolish ‘democracy’ as we know it, but rather, that we revolutionize it and innovate ‘democracy’ with the foundation s of a more direct form of democracy. Collectively, we can literally delete the elite.
How Is This Possible?
We hope to promote or otherwise bring forward an operating system choice which can be installed or dual-booted from any device by any individual upon earth. This operating system will allow for individuals and participating sanctuaries to connect with one another through a basic open-sourced operating system (in the likeness of Ubuntu) which would include applications and other open-sourced software to allow for individual involvement within a global system. Effectively we will eliminate corruption and inequality by creating a new economy using technology that already exists while continuing to create new programs which will effectively suit the purpose of our needs. Through an open-sourced, community project that is available within the global public domain we will be able to allow for complete project transparency.
The use of such a program will allow for individuals to better understand and secure their own computers while using currently known applications allowing for open-sourced programs to be continuously developed, introduced, and implemented in order to create new forms of online and operating system securities. Such measures would not only protect those dwelling within sanctuaries, but also those who participate from a satellite sanctuary or individually.
A Simple Operating System For A Complex World
The basic structure of the operating system would appear in-line with current operating systems such as those available on Windows and Mac computers. We prefer to use a linux-based distribution which would be modified to suit the purpose fo providing the relevant applications needed to create a unique global operating system and network. The operating system will be able to be installed upon most machines allowing for individuals from anywhere to quickly be brought within our operating system structure and incorporate their communities into the sanctuary system. Our operating system will also come with basic applications such as word-processors, spreadsheets, and more pre-installed software so as to provide a standard machine for individuals to use to organize, educate, or inspire.
With various – yet specific applications, we can then work on transforming our current representative-based governing systems into more transparent and less corruptible open-sourced, community-based and oriented applications which will better serve humanity. While the operating system will provide for a base to run applications upon, we’ll work to standardize applications which hole the potential to create a new ‘representative-free, consensus-based governmental system’. These projects will be leaderless and are to be developed in order to help better dictate the needs of sanctuary life, in order to allow for self-governance.
Global Applications For A New Way
-The Privacy Pack
Individuals have a right to personal privacy and should know the programs that are available to help them secure their communications. We advocate for an individual’s right to privacy, therefore we are working to compile and will work to incorporate programs such as Tor and other tools into our future operating system in order to keep communications via network and computers encrypted and secured.
-A New Voting Platform
There have been various successful tests of direct e-democracy systems that effectively eliminate the need for representatives and better reflect an accurate expression of those who participate within a voting system. A primary focus of building sanctuary for humanity will be to recreate a voting platform in this order. Such systems would be coded by a community of individuals who would be dedicated to keeping an open-sourced system operating which allows for both transparency and innovation for those who wish to use such a system while also allowing for the creation of new elements or structures for each sanctuary locale. Currently, we recommend using Loomio for this purpose.
-Global Logistics To Eliminate Need
An application for global logistics could literally wipe hunger off the face of the planet. Once we create sanctuaries we would then be able to allow for each sanctuary to connect to a logistics network which would display needs, along with allowing for other sanctuaries to eliminate such needs by providing mutual-aid or resource-sharing.
-A New Global Currency
Individuals working to build sanctuaries will be able to generate a form of ‘crypt-currency’ by converting current monetary types into new crypto-currencies, which would allow for individuals to participate within new marketplace structures. Individuals would also be able to ‘cash out’ from their choice of crypto-currency and convert it back into monetary types used in non-sanctuary areas, as desired. Individuals will be able to interact with the evolution of our new operating system and applications while we work to phase out and eliminate the need for a monetary-based system overall. Our eventual goal is to inspire the development of a new type of mutual-aid and resource-based sharing economy, if not a gift economy.
-A New Global Marketplace
Our sanctuaries will be able to create and disperse products using our new logistical system to either help sustain other sanctuaries through the use of mutual aid, or offer suggestive pricing in order to help fulfill the needs of an individual’s own or other sanctuary locations. Suggestive prices would help continue the building of sanctuaries while utilizing ‘crypto-currencies’ so as to support the efforts of the creators of goods and services. This would allow individuals to control their own market places and decide how best to effectively the goods and services placed within the market.
