Hi folks. I could use some help fleshing this out, and you guys could use some help saving the world, right?
The basic idea . . .instead of fighting all these problems and losing, to turn our biggest monster into our pet and win. To turn a corporation into a nation that's not stuck to a chunk of dirt, to turn employment into peaceful citizenship, and to take everything to the logical next level.
That's where it gets a bit complicated, because you can't cover the entire scope of life without a lot of nuts and bolts, but it's really not that difficult in the end. We have prototypes and pieces. TED talks, Valve Mondragon, and so very much more. This is just connecting the dots that are already out there, and giving people something to protect them while they take their lives back.
Of course, it's not all quite that simple, and we run into different issues depending on approach, but once we've got a good vision out there that's really inclusive and takes advantage of who we really are, and we've got a couple of paths there that exploit existing systems, then it doesn't take long before we run out of major issues. It's not just that we've got solutions for all of your problems, but you do too.
Because let's face it, this is easy mode, the bar is set so very, very low.
This isn't a script, yet it is. I spent over a year on the science but had difficulty communicating such a complicated idea except in conversation. In desperation, I tried something silly, and it's working amazingly well. I want no credit and consider myself fairly unimportant in the grand scheme of things, I'm just good at lateral hops and have been motivated by the best person I've ever know.
It's an explanation of how to exploit a gaping flaw in the multinational corporation and use it to take our lives back and to break away from our corrupt governments and businesses, but it does it in the nicest, most peaceful way possible.
A quick summary (it's overspecific, there are other approaches, but this should plant some seeds) would be. . .
1) To create corporation that's owned by all of us
2) Turn that corporation into our very own nation, to turn 'employment' into 'peaceful citizenship'
3) Offer up a variety of amazing sorts of 'life packages' that will only get better,
4) Hire EVERYBODY who can agree not to hurt anybody else in exchange for safety, support, health, and awesomeness, and
5) reset the world, making all other governments and corporations irrelevant and putting the innocent and gentle in charge.
Keep in mind, it's only got specificity because the vague approach didn't click with people. If you don't like it, figure out how to make it work for you. That's the point. It's not a singular vision, its' a way to create MANY visions without having to worry about the mess we're currently in.
Any help would be appreciated . . . spread the word, help flesh out the characters, whatever it takes. This is just a seed to help crowdsource a revolution. This idea's way too big for the few of us who've been working on it.
And lastly, feel free to toss in questions or solutions!
[Update: The doc still has info, but it's slowly getting ported (along with new info) to a temporary cut-and-paste friendly website. Definitely a better place to get started!
