The Concept and Structure of
31 March 2012
“We are all creatures of one world; we are all of one blood. To hate a man because he was born in another country, because he speaks a different language, or because he takes a different view on this subject or that, is a great folly. Desist, I implore you, for we are all equally created… let us have but one end in view, the welfare of mankind.” Johann Amos Comenius (slight edited)
The outline of the polycentric community is given in the essay polycentric community linked here. Community originates from Latin ‘communitas’ (cum, “with/together” + munus, “gift”)
“There is something about modern society which persistently denies mankind’s nature. People are separated from the natural conditions in which they might be happy and fulfilled and as a consequence social problems develop.” Community is the solution.
The concept of community is in direct opposition to that of the concept of State; a State holds control over the individual, regulating, licensing, monopolizing, and bureaucratising, as a master over a slave; while a community is common unity of interaction between individuals; the inherent tendency of the State is to concentrate, to narrow, and monopolize all social activities; the nature of community is, on the contrary, to grow, to broaden, and disseminate community and individual interactions in ever-wider circles, founded on social activity. In other words, the State is institutional and static; community is fluent, and dynamic. These two tendencies are incompatible and mutually destructive. The corporate system is based in the stagnance of the corpse, a dead systems of control through ownership, practically holding the living in a state of living death, a state they seldom even recognise as they have known no other state, as a result this commonly engenders feelings of depression, apathy, worthlessness and futility in life itself; in contrast community is the natural state of social life, a living state, a place few in the corporate dominated world have ever enjoyed.
The concept of community is not well understood, as the corporate system is a powerful force against it, working to suppress or removing it completely, it drains the resources, so opportunities for the individual, and squanders their time on the treadmill of predominantly pointless industry for the attainment of the delusion of accumulating wealth.
A community is a group of men, women and children living and interacting with one another in a particular environment for the benefit of both themselves and those around them. The individuals in a community affect each other’s abundance, distribution, and evolutionary adaptation in production, innovation and development. Depending on how broadly one views the interaction between individuals, a community can be small as in a family or group of friends, or local, as in a village or town community, or regional as the collective of communities that grow out from the individual community groups, where individuals interact regionally becoming wider then it’s a global community of individual interactions between distant communities, so manifesting diversity, creativity and common unity; like Russian dolls community hides within itself community, all from the common unity between living souls.
“We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living….We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his ‘right’ to exist….The true business of people should be to go back to school and think….” Richard Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983)
There are many structures that can be created as a basis of community; I will give a few examples to present the concept clearly.
A Technology Based Community
Technology is using knowledge and tools to solve existing problems, advance solutions of potential problems, or developing new avenues of creativity.
The corporate system functions on monopoly, either by State sanctioned privilege or economic State regulation, these globalised monopolies manifest in the retardation or complete suppression of new technological developments that would threaten an existing monopoly.
To a community based system that situation is a gifted which avails opportunity, this retardation of technology has existed for a least a 100 years. The State institutions of media, education and bureaucracy have worked to discredit these technological developments, marginalise the scientist responsible, through creating disinformation to confuse, deceive and mislead the common man.
“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” William Casey, CIA director (from Staff meeting 1981)
“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge” Stephen Hawking
A community based on the development of technology is by nature one of selective inclusion, as dictated by three elements, knowledge, skills and imagination. In many ways this community empowers all others; it is a potential engine of creation that lifts society out of scarcity and exclusion, therefore is the most important to develop. Technological communities are not limited to energy generating system, but all aspects of scientific knowledge.
If suppressed or ignored technologies are developed, this will make viable the creation of communities based on the allodial cooperative model, founded on the production, implementation or dissemination of these technological developments.
If the disinformation generated by the State is removed through the practical application and physical evidence of the creation of advanced technological products, it exposes the States disinformation for exactly what it is, both demonstrating the State, their universities and corporations as liars, but also making those in the community based model of society the most advanced and technological based system.
A Trivium Based University Community
Originally education was in social codes and manners within a systematic schooling and training for the benefit of performing work.
With the creation of the trivium this evolved into the developing of the powers of reasoning and judgment, and the general preparation of the intellectual faculties of the individual.
The State has worked diligently to remove the trivium from the State education system, leaving that method of the development of reason available only to those lucky enough to be in the private schools of the elite, a trivium based education is called a ‘classical education’. To understand the trivium method of reasoning please read this link ‘The Trivium’.
All State systems of education are based upon the Prussian school of education, which is based on memorisation and regurgitation of authoritative knowledge, this form of knowledge based on the logical fallacy of an appeal to authority without investigation of evidence or comprehension of the basis, structure or true nature of what is taught, the true form of knowledge is comprehended knowledge. This perversion from true education is a result of the Napoleonic War, which demonstrated to the elite a population able to reason through the methods of the trivium cannot be easily controlled, indoctrinated or confused.
The States further attacks the reasoning abilities of the population through chemical poisoning of water supply and food, and the promotion of misrepresented pharmaceutical medicines; this is compounded by the media system and bureaucratic system.
In the modern world education has fallen more and more into the manipulations and confusions of the elite sovereigns who dictate upon the people, this has inevitably lead to a situation where, what is taught is not what is useful, true or evolving.
For an example, within physics, nothing has truly advanced in theoretical physics since the 1930’s, the abstract mathematical theories are no longer held up purely through experimentation or the observation of physical phenomenon, but by the invention of new theories or forces invented to maintain the failures in practical application of the central theories, all founded on the extensively disproven big bang theory.
The desire of all States to maintain ignorance and propagate disinformation has led to the long standing situation of stagnation, in many areas of scientific investigation. Within physics it can be traced back to the modern banking system, which required the charging of energy to maintain its control of the world, hence our continued use of the combustion engine, a technology that has not fundamentally changed very much since its first development a 150 years ago.
“Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.” Nikola Tesla
The University of the Trivium as a basis of a community is by its nature one of selective inclusion, as dictated by three elements, knowledge, skills and imagination.
As the State corporate system has worked to corrupt or hide knowledge and has a corporate university system based upon profit and graduating in degree, as an attainment of memorised authoritative knowledge, knowledge widely consider wholly worthless in real life application such as industry, with the vast majority of graduates failing to gain any true benefit from the years spent attaining their very expensive certification.
Detractors may argue a community based university that granted qualifications would not have them recognised, however a system based on comprehended knowledge that can truly be applied in the real world would afford the individual achieving such an education a vast and powerful advantage over the authoritative model of soon forgot memorisation.
A document signifying an understanding of the highest level of a subject would stand on its own merits, in physics for example you may not get the grants of the sovereign state but you will most certainly be sort out by anyone who wished to truly develop technologies utilising knowledge the conventional universities refuse or are prevented from having known.
A community based upon the University of the Trivium would have a huge potential of growth in symbiotic service communities around it, accommodating the endless influx of students, in temporary living accommodation, shops and restaurants, social facilities and entertainment.
The cost of attending a community based university would be a fraction of the cost of attending a conventional one, as would the cost of accommodation and services. This would also increase the appeal and open up greater opportunities for the less affluent. In theory it may even be free, in a system without taxation or profits, altruistic support would be the common and healthy reality, as the affluence of those who had gained benefit from the community contributed towards the education of others, and the allodial cooperatives who reaped the benefits of the knowledge and skills of graduates showed their appreciation and investment in potential future cooperative members.
Finding experts in the fields of study that would be taught within the university is also yet another gift of the corporate system, as those individuals that do not accept the conventional views, these conventional views standing against the physical evidence, are marginalized, often refused grants, job opportunities within state or lesser corporations, due directly to the control of the banking elite, wishing to make the truth an expensive career move. The true cream of all the intellectual minds, are the ones pushed out of the sovereign system. They are also the altruistic, the seekers of truth, the brave and the honest, intellectuals, pioneers and innovators as all these attributes are needed to stand up for the truth.
The creation of a university community would be the most advanced and would quickly become both sort after and highly regarded place of learning. The education provided would lift students up to genius levels of competence making them the true cream of intellectual, philosophical, technical and creative fields of every area of knowledge and development.
An Allodial Industrial Based Community
Industry is the physical production of goods or services diligently created.
An industrial community based upon allodial cooperatives are created based on production of goods or services; there are major advantages over the corporate model. A corporation is the organisation of a group of men and women who work together for their own advantage, to gain ‘profit’ through capital advantage, granted monopoly, and the protection of corporate legislation to remove accountability and limit liability for those involved.
The concept of ‘Profit’ is not well understood, it is an invented amount added to the selling price above all the cost of production. Profit has many logical fallacies applied to give it some justification; a common claim is as a pecuniary gain resulting from the employment of capital, please read the ‘Fraud of Capitalism’. The profit of the corporate system has many layers; each external element of production adds profit, as does the granting State corporation which adds its own profit, extracted through taxation, this applies to every aspect of production, fuel, transport, capital advances, rent (rates) from the State Corporation, etc. This profit is considered part of production costs, the producing corporation then adds it profit as does the granting State corporation as tax, as do all retailers who sell on the products and as does, again, the State corporation which adds its profit of taxation. The end result of this profit based system is, the end consumer of a product pays on average over 90% more for goods and services than the true value.
This corporate profit once removed gives enormous benefit to an allodial cooperative system, allowing the creation of products free of profit, but increasing the earnings of those who are producing significantly while reducing the cost to the end user by a vast amount.
The corporate system commonly produces goods with limited application through engineered redundancy, intentionally manufacturing goods to fail after limited use, in the view of the producing corporation as close to the end of the warranty as possible. The production of goods which are energy greedy and inefficiently designed, that do not take advantage of advances in technology that would weaken or remove the existing monopolies of the producing corporation.
For example: a washing machine created by the consumer products giants Unilever (who along with Procter & Gamble (P&G) in October 2012 have been fined 315m euros (£280m, $456m) for fixing washing powder prices in eight European countries) was developed that used no chemicals at all to clean clothes, and cleaned clothes considerably better than any chemical based cleaning additive, but instead of using washing powder it used oxygen in the form of ozone within the water, ozone generated by the washing machine. This technology would be easy to develop and produce within a cooperative model, further a machine could be designed to last a life time, being over engineered, designed easy to maintain and to repair. The adding of State taxation and corporate profit that inflates the cost of a washing machine, would not be applicable, an allodial cooperative could manufacture with cheaper costs than the corporate model, while being constructed from much higher quality components, attention to detail, workmanship and technology, while providing considerably more benefit financially to those actually labouring in its creation.
The truth is, an imposed monopoly, always creates an opportunity for those who it cannot be imposed upon, the media whore of the corporate system attempts to convince the masses that the existing system is the very best that can be offered, when it is the opposite.
Air Field Travel Based Community
At present the corporate system holds people within Corporate States, making a living man, woman or child a corporate entity, with a certified berth in the ship of citizen (birth certificate). When the State acts against or in benefit it is through the Citizen-ship, hence in court you are in a dock, a place to harbour a ship, or if you want to leave one Corporate State for another, you use a Port, a sea port, or an airport.
In reality a State is a fiction to enslave those within its control, but a living man or woman is not a fiction, and are not the property of a state, these fictions are imposed through the founding fiction of ownership, explained here ‘The Onion of Ownership’.
Within the corporate system the costs of flights are inflated by as much as 90% by State imposed taxation, in addition States impose a system of visas which are endorsements of certification to restrict or gain revenue from those wishing to pass from one port to another.
“A DEA helicopter was used to gun down two pregnant women and two 14-yr-old boys in Honduras because they were “suspected” of being drug dealers? Well, those same tactics are now being used in America.
After being pulled over for having a suspect “covered truck bed,” a vehicle which fled from Texas game wardens was shot at by Texas “Department of Public Safety” agents with a sniper rifle from a helicopter. While the police claim they were intending to disable the car, they instead killed two passengers, and sent another to the hospital. No drugs were found, and the DPS says their shooting was “within policy.” From a news report in San Antonio from 1 November 2012.
The agents of the Corporate States around the world murder many innocent people annually to prevent them from passing across their invented fictional borders, and their acts of cold blooded murder go without account, if in the corporate system you murder for the State, those murderers believe they have immunity from any accountability, this insanity cannot be allowed to continue, people must begin to wake up and remove themselves from these invented fictions. Those guilty of murder must be tried in a court of the living and if found guilty executed, their resources going to their victims’ families.
The allodial cooperative has many advantages over the corporate structure, with the creation of an airfield and facilities for the landing, take-off, shelter, supply, and repair of aircraft, and facilities used for receiving or discharging passengers and cargo at regularly scheduled times, the basics of an air field would be in place, this would be a large community project requiring many skilled members.
With no involvement of the Corporation of State the cost of transport would be a fraction of the corporate cost. Technology could be quickly improved developing air craft based on the Hutchison Effect, discovered by the Canadian John Hutchison, which allows anti-gravity systems that are far safer, cost effective, none polluting and quiet.
An Agricultural based community (hemp)
The corporate State prohibits the growing of hemp, as this single plant genus is the most important to agriculture. Under the lie of drug use, they have prevented the cultivation of this group of plants, it has no damaging side effects even as a recreational drug, in studies it has been shown to improve the health and capacity of the lungs, it aids the body in healing, it relaxes and calms the user, it is impossible to over dose on hemp, no one has ever died from using it as a drug.
“Whose property is my body? Probably mine, I so regard it. If I experiment with it, to who must I be answerable? I, not the State.” Mark Twain
Hemp is one of the most useful plants on Earth. For thousands of years, humans have used parts of the hemp plant for food, textiles, paper, fabric, and fuel oil. It grows quickly, naturally resists plant diseases, requires little weeding, thrives in most climates, and enriches the soil it grows in.
Hempseeds and hemp oil are highly nutritious and delicious. Hempseeds are an excellent source of protein, minerals, and dietary fibre. Hemp is the only plant that contains all of the essential fatty acids and amino acids required by the human body.
It is a natural emollient so is ideal for lotions and many other skin, hair, and cosmetic products.
Hemp has been used to make paper for thousands of years. It regenerates in the field in months, unlike trees which can take 30 years or more to become harvestable after planting.
It can be used to make a variety of fabrics, similar to but more durable than cotton. Hemp is also excellent for making rugs and other textiles. The word canvas comes from the Latin word for hemp.
Standard plastic is made from fossil fuels using toxic chemicals. Almost everything we buy is wrapped in cellophane and our landfills are full of it. A variety of alternatives to plastic can be made from hemp.
In 1941, Henry Ford held a media event where he swung an axe at a prototype car body made of hemp and other plant material to prove its strength, proven to be 10 times stronger than steel. The technology was never put into mass production, cars continued to be made of steel, and plastics made from petrochemicals became the norm.
Hemp based materials can replace wood and other materials used to build homes and other structures including foundations, walls, shingles, panelling, pipes, and paint. The modern hemp building materials Hempcrete and Isochanvre are lightweight, waterproof, fireproof, self-insulating, and resistant to pests.
As a base of a community hemp would provide the raw material of production endlessly, in diverse and sustainable areas.
These are just a few examples of what a cooperative based community could organise around, in fact the possibilities are limitless.
The structure of community can be varied, the main constraint being maintaining the inherent power of the individual, and the prevention of hierarchical structures being imposed upon any other.
The idea of a leader, boss, or superior authority is widely propagated by corporate society, it being founded on hierarchies; this creates inequity, a superior over an inferior man, who is driven, compelled to labour, is made dependent through the scarcity of monopoly, who lives in fear, taught wilful ignorance and subjugation. This leads to many who are made to feel inferiority themselves having a desire to dominate those weaker in society, so using others for their own advantage.
“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” Ernest Hemingway
Community is based on education, so the most valued members are not leaders, bosses, etc., but teachers; coaching and guiding others, generating trust and instilling passion, enthusiasm and security. Knowledge is the endless spring of transformation.
“Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything, you can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.” Robert Heinlein
The central element of community is trade, people create and people require this is the nature of mankind. This means the central component of a community is the establishment of an allodial labour repository. Please read the essay ‘Repository Finance’.
Trading is done under the protection of the surety bond system, a surety bond is a written agreement between two living men or women that creates a reciprocal bond, an individual can have up to 23 bondsmen, if one bondsmen defaults on any trading obligation the other bondsmen will step in and fulfil that obligation to the best of their ability, this protects agreements in trade, providing security and certitude. Please read the essay ‘Surety Bond’.
As trade is central, and for the most part unique to mankind, the need for a market to exchange goods is also central, in the original system of market towns and village satellites, each village had easy access to several market towns, with each market opening on different days of the week, this allowed traders to move from one market to another to sell their goods. This was often refined to have different traders on different days; grocers and food goods market on one day, a clothes and furnishings market on another for example.
In the simple diagram below is graphic views of the idea of communities building outward, all variations of community are both independent and interdependent.
Community by definition must be tight knit, a group of strangers can only exist in a locality not in common unity. Group size varies according to what type of community is involved, for example within an allodial cooperative the group size should ideally never get above 15 members as it can generate conflicts within the group, when the group reaches or surpasses 15 it would be wise to split the group into two separate cooperatives.
Likewise in social community too great a number of members can remove the unity that is the foundation of community. Therefore ideally as a community grows too large it gradually and organically divides, what the ideal number is for a community would depend on that group of individuals.
The old system of a Common within a village community, where all could share the land for grazing, can be extended to a Permaculture Common; this is in addition to independent market gardens around a home, or the green house farming of out of season fruits and vegetables, or a cooperative based farm. If an area is designated for the purpose of a Common anyone who wished to contribute their time or resources into its creation and maintenance could do so.
Once established a permaculture system would require minimal maintenance, harvesting of food would be the main activity and that its self would be for the individual who wished to take what they needed in fruits and vegetables from that common source, the only constraint being it is free and not to take more than you require.
Permaculture design emphasizes patterns of landscape, function, and species assemblies, maximizing useful connections between components and synergy of the final design.
This would allow anyone requiring fresh and organic fruit and vegetables a seasonal supply with minimal labour and effort. Although all could share the resource of the permaculture Common not all would be involved in its creation and development, this does not matter as in a community many common elements are involved, common roads are created by some and used by all, common parks are created by some and used by all, everyone contributes as their nature allows some in labour others with the donation of resources, others through teaching, others through helping, all benefit.
Democracy is a fraud and is not the basis of community; see the essay ‘The Fraud of Democracy’. All decisions of a common nature, not decisions of an individual nature that do not need the consent of any others, are based on consensus, not majority dictate, and are always bound by the innate duty of care each has for those around them.
For example if a bridge is suggested over a river, at a location, the first thing to establish is if those who dwell directly around the site of the bridge have any objection. If they do another location would have to be found.
After this it must be supported by 23 members of the community.
Then the community must be informed of the proposal, and all suggestions, additional proposals and objections put forward for rebuttal or agreement. If objections are raised that cannot be settled between those for, and those against, then the dispute could be taken to arbitration, where a group of 23 peers randomly selected and unconnected to the case or any in dispute listen to the arguments for and against, and establish a conclusion that is binding in consensus.
If all are then satisfied and the bridge is to be built, those who wish its creation must either provide the resources and labour needed, or seek donations as unadulterated gifts of resources and labour to achieve their objective from community members, they must also seek or provide the competence to achieve the task technically, sustainably and harmoniously with its surroundings.
If a suggested project involves more than one community, for example a road between two communities, then a similar process is undertaken.
Enforced monopoly stagnates innovation, initiative, and engagement, and is not healthy for the community or the individual. States function upon the imposed monopoly of services, and rob the population through force or the threat of force to pay for these imposed services whether you want them or not.
If a service is truly required then people will create it locally for local use, for example children need education, in the corporate system parents do not have time to educate their children, but a parent is an important teacher in life, and would be the best early educator. If within a community a school is required it would be funded through the community repository as it is the foundation of the innate condition of mankind, we are created to learn, to reason, to imagine.
Those who wished could give the resources and labours towards the creation of the school, and any short fall would be provided by the repository which would advance the labour required to establish the school, and fund the teachers, and learning materials. The school would be a cooperative of all the teachers within it, the advanced labour would be repayable by the teachers but would be held in surety by every member of the community whose child was a student of the school, the teachers would not be bound to repay the advance it would fall straight to the surety.
The advance of labour would be repaid to the repository by donations from members of the community and through fund raising events.
The resources donated as unadulterated gifts that form the school, are held as the possession of nature, having been returned to nature, and so are held in the allodium of nature itself; no man or woman can make selfish use of shared elements of nature.
A community school would not teach based on the Prussian school of education, of memorisation and regurgitation of authoritative knowledge, but would teach based on the trivium so teaching and learning comprehended knowledge, as detailed in the essay ‘The Trivium’. This is known as a classical education.
Some services are open to two options, payment on utilisation or bonded assurance; these services include the multitude of medical services, and dental services. Please read the essay ‘Bonded Cooperative Assurance System’ to understand this further.
The vast majority of imposed services of the State are rendered redundant when theft, monopoly, subjugation and exploitation no long function through invented authority to dominate the people. The police for example are not required, as the surety bond system establishes order within the community, and those who champion the cause of the weak establish relief through the court of the living.
Court of the Living
“To disarm the people… was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” George Mason
An armed population is not dangerous, in fact educated and community based individuals are quiet capable of possessing a gun safely, just as they are of possessing a car, which can be used with equal destructive force if in the wrong hands. What is proven incredibly dangerous is a Corporate State holding a monopoly on gun possession.
We feed off of its industry, we bury its seed in the dust, we burn up its resources, we maintain its condition of indigence, what is it, the flesh of our neighbour.
