Our SystemSuccess is realised by the extent to which our products realiseourselves, not in money or popularity. Money and popularityare by-products over which we have far less control.If income sharing in permanent and unconditional then we donot have to try and accumulate financial fortunes to guaranteeit. Instead, we have the freedom to focus on making our bestcontributions in products that realise our potential.Our whole system should be geared towards making our systemone in which we can all find fulfilment through realising ourpotential: that is the common purpose.This purpose should be reflected in our legal systems, oureconomic systems, our organisations, and our social systems.
EnlightenmentWe all have to right to realise our potential. Only a sharedbase income can guarantee that right for everyone.A world in which fulfilment without harm is guaranteed is atits most efficient. It is a world were all things are done easily:in the right way, at the right time, in the right place.This is the world of enlightenment, where fulfilment leads togreatest understanding, and no harm to guardianship of all.Our enlightenment on the nature of our world will be theoutcome of us, as a species, realising our potential in each andevery individual – an enlightenment and understanding thatwill see us living as guardians of nature operatingharmoniously with its forces and resources, rather than asmasters seeking to exploit it.
Make Change 1:3Transform our system into one no longer based on finance and power,money and control, but on our fulfilment and the realisation of all ourpotentials without harm.In general, we are the same, in particular, all different. It is ourdifferences that make us special, unique and individual. If we give up,surrender or derogate our fulfilment, we submit to the forces thatdenigrate our individual expression and we live lives unfulfilled andunexpressed. The world loses our product and our potential, and welose ourselves.It will not be until we insist on our rights that they are instituted andour organisations reflect them. It is not enough to not harm, we mustreject harm as well. We must do what is right for ourselves withoutharming others.
Make Change 2:3Refuse to recognise authority that harms, even when it is not us beingharmed, even if protesting means we are harmed. If we do not, wepermit harm.Recognise the basic right of all of us to fulfilment without harm. Thisrequires us all share in a base income we all receive so that we can allmake our own choices about how we make our best contributions torealise our potentials and find fulfilment.Do not conform. Insist on flexibility and tolerance. Do what expressesourselves, do what is right.Reject the confiscation of our ideas, reject rigidity in work time andplace, reject total compliance with commands, and reject restrictionson dress and appearance. Employment contracts must be fair, asbetween equal members, equal participants.
Make Change 3:3By being strong and expressing ourselves we contribute to the neverending whirlpool of debate and opinion that is our collectiveintelligence and our common fulfilment.Align everything to fulfilment, divert financial incentive, but notfinancial signals, and replace them with the fulfilment-growth incentiveby contribution.Advance work that is fulfilling; open learning via all channels; promotecontribution and ideas.If the world is not fair (and it is not), make it fairer: that is ourchallenge, not our excuse.
Find Our NicheCompetition occurs in closely related niches, between painters withdifferent styles, physicists with different theories, toymakers withdifferent toys, between people in similar fields trying to make their bestcontributions.Open information systems are essential to breaking through the legaciesof former producers in our niche.The most effective tool of human selection is the realisation of our ownpotential, as when the contribution from realising our potential islauded, then the effect of that popularity on the whole population’sselection for traits alike to ours is at its greatest.So if there is competition to contribute, then it is competition tocontribute as ourselves, in ways that express and fulfil who we are.
The TransitionTo make progress towards our common fulfilment we need to questionour current systems and hold our purpose in mind.The detail of how opportunity and income is shared, so opportunity tocontribute and find fulfilment is shared, must be a decision from thechoices of all of us via the information systems we have constructed.More than likely it will not be a fixed decision, but a series oftransforming decisions, modified as our society adapts and modifies.We need to think about the mechanics of how we make life anopportunity for all of us to find fulfilment without harm, as well as liveour own lives in pursuit of our fulfilment without harm to others,contributing were we are best able, in the right way, at the right time, inthe right place.
