The Defective Day Part 2

The Defective Day Part 2

Read Part 1 here

The morning after the field trip, I awoke to the sight of the sun cautiously breaking the horizon outside my window; manipulating the sky into an array of bright and fiery colors. I pulled myself out of bed and watched the glow for a few short seconds, and then noticed the moon off to the left, slowly fading into the day time. In a quick motion I set my hand on the window and arranged my thumb and index finger on the moon, pulling them apart to zoom in. The grey sphere enlarged and I could see the ships entering and exiting the lunar docks. My parents had traveled by orbital maglev to the moon two days ago for a vacation after a long work session attempting to create matter without the empty space between the atoms, as a method for drilling to the center of planets. They deserved the time away on the moon.

A shift in social values

A shift in social values

A new member of the Los Angeles chapter (Roberto Tejada) gave his first TZM Townhall presentation this past June 2014. The topic was about a shift in values contrasting the current monetary paradigm with how our values would differ in an NL/RBE. I enjoyed his talk and wanted to share it here.

The following are my comments in regards to "values" following upon the conversation started in this presentation:

A Call to Chapters

A Call to Chapters

There are many TZM activists all over Earth and each and every one of you are celebrated!

What exactly is the difference between an official chapter and a group of activists?

Neither is of more or less value than the other. All of us involved are individual awareness activists. When we organize with others we become a group of activists. There is great benefit that many groups of activists are missing by not connecting with the global network in an official way.

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.

Carta Aberta aos Trabalhadores do Bem Comum

Carta Aberta aos Trabalhadores do Bem Comum

Queridas e queridos trabalhadores do Bem Comum e Cooperativistas,
Em um discurso de 19 de setembro de 2012, o presidente do Equador, Rafael Correa, pediu à juventude de seu país para lutar por e alcançar a visão do "bem viver" de uma sociedade baseada no conhecimento comum e aberto. O projeto Flok Society (''Free/Libre Open Knowledge'') foi criado para desenvolver um plano de transição e políticas públicas para alcançar essa visão única. De acordo com o Plano Nacional do Equador, não pode existir uma política de "bem viver" que não esteja inspirada e enraizada no conhecimento livre e aberto e em um bem comum próspero.
O projeto Flok Society é um esforço de pesquisa conjunto entre o Ministério Coordenador de Conhecimento e Talento Humano, a SENESCYT ( Secretaria Nacional de Educação Superior, Ciência, Tecnologia e Inovação) e do IAEN (Instituto de Atos Estudos Nacionais), que tem por objetivo finalizar uma proposta a ser apresentada em uma cúpula em abril de 2014, reunindo o presidente, oficiais do governo, participantes da sociedade civil e especialistas globais do bem comum. O projeto recebeu impulso do reitor do IAEN, Carlos Prieto, dos líderes do projeto Xabier E. Barandiaran & Daniel Vázquez e do Diretor de Pesquisa, Michel Bauwens, entre outros.
