Universal Basic Income: The trojan horse

Universal Basic Income: The trojan horse

I should have written this article about 6 months ago, when I finished my thesis on a Resource Based Economy, but this could not be a better occasion. Due to various circumstances, we find a key to the expansion of an idea whose time has come now. Unlink employment, in the minds of people, from the right to exist.

My Proposal for an RBE Game

My Proposal for an RBE Game

I've been working for a while on this concept in my head.

After searching for other such proposals on the web for me to join in and share ideas, and being disappointed by what I found, I decided to start working on my own proposal from scratch.

How Can We Get There?

How Can We Get There?

Often, when engaging the public on the subject of TZM and a post-scarcity society, I am asked a question like "How do we get there?" in the sense of what methods can we use to gain support and move society into a new zeitgeist, or how can we collect the resources necessary to build a new infrastructure?

Moving Even More Forward: Addendum (or, how I learned to relax and love the change)

Moving Even More Forward: Addendum (or, how I learned to relax and love the change)

Having finished watching "Gasland" (on YouTube, not mega upload, thank you very much) an hour ago, I feel really sick to my stomach. I would like to apologize again for working in the oil and gas industry.

This is where it comes from.

Moving Even More Forward

Moving Even More Forward

I breathed a sigh of relief this afternoon as I realized my first attempt at a blog; "Moving Forward with ‘Moving Forward’ " had been published. Somebody must think I'm on the right track. So now I’d like to expand on some of my ideas and maybe present some new ones...The first one took me a few days to write and I struggled to keep it short and thus readable....

Una noche sin amanecer Many say that the worst is yet to come, things will not improve, that the collapse is inevitable and there is not much you can do, that the future is bleak and we are in a night without dawn...

Essay: A People's History of a Resource-Based Economic Model

“Arawak men and women, naked, tawny, and full of wonder, emerged from their villages onto the island’s beaches and swam out to get a closer look at the strange big boat. When Columbus and his sailors came ashore, carrying swords, speaking oddly, the Arawaks ran to greet them, brought them food, water, gifts.”

Possible requirements for the transition to an RBE.

This article doesn't pretend to be the guide for the transition, but a prospective view on it. On the issue of how to reach a resource-based economy (the transition) there is a wide variety of possibilities. Probably the key to change begins with changing how we interact with the monetary system every day.

TZMNZ introducing a RBE to Occupy Wellington

On October 24, 2011, Occupy Wellington' held an event for anyone or any organization to come along and express their issues with today's society along with their proposed solutions to it.

Local TZMNZ members attended to take the opportunity to march along side with those sharing common problems, mostly of those against monetary corruption.

Three members, Gordon Dykes, Matthew Leathers, Sam McPherson, and myself occupied a tent to introduce and video tape the concept of a Resource Based Economy to those who attended the event.
