Promise

The Promise workgroup accounts for open governance adoption, contract performance, and conflict resolution among all stakeholders and institutions, and stewards these data in open public forums, moderated by members from every location, for verifiable ranked-choice sense-making and peer-to-peer open source decision-making everywhere.  >>> key questions below.

A promise is intrinsically a social act. Our investment of equal time-value and in-kind resources in home-grown multidisciplinary mesh networks of oneday.community will determine in the next decade, more than ever before, our return on every investment we make in life, liberty and property. Barring natural catastrophe, the future of humanity depends on our organizational capacity for open source social contracts that align with the immutable elements of fairness, through accountancy for life ecology. Closed governance is the antithesis of social contract, for power shrouded in secrecy is inherently antisocial. Inclusive, participatory governance and open accounting holds the only promise humans have ever had of living equally well and sustainably together at scale. The scientific process of understanding and consensus is fundamentally a social contract of open governance in life ecology.

To piously claim that it is only the "love of money" that is the root of all evil, as though finance works differently if you unlove it, is to fall for the simplistic propaganda of capital-socialism extant in political and religious extremism, where irrational and uncooperative attitudes of tribalistic nationalism offer nothing but to blame the other for our disconnect, despite having the technology to logically and reasonably vet our differences openly and fairly. The divide and conquer strategy of corporate-state controlled opposition to both Capitalism and Socialism, in a party-system of closed governance, is the only play left among an intellectually bankrupt ruling class, whose rules of debt-finance and secret dealings cannot possibly work in ecosystem reality, not even for The Inner Circle (Konchalovsky, 1991)

Love is a rose but you better not pick it
Only grows when it's on the vine
Handful of thorns and you'll know you've missed it
Lose your love when you say the word mine
(Linda Ronstadt,1975)

Monetization is predicated on scarcity. Resources that are universally available to everyone, over which there is no conflict (Air), have no monetary value. If it is sustainable abundance and violence reduction we seek, inclusive fairness and participation must be the basis of legitimacy in social contract. Fair access to clean air, water, food, housing, healthcare, information and infrastructure, cannot be financialized by closed governance for private passive profit, without the inevitable horrors of imposed scarcity, inequality, and structural violence against Human Economic Purpose. As long as money is created by the few and issued as debt to the many, Capitalism will never borrow our communities out of servitude to those who control our access to capital. Thus, a financialized state/market system of closed governance cannot extricate itself from the ecological crises that it continuously creates. Closed source money is never a voluntary open source social contract.

We all want an easy way out. If only we could magically create and spend more money (inflation and taxation) as a Socialism solution to imposed scarcity and environmental destruction, without actually ever having to match accurate data and natural resources with verifiable human skill sets and tool kits, or be accountable to each other for how we each participate in society. The idea that it is possible for everyone to achieve financial independence through passive monetary income is and always will be a self-destructive pyramid fantasy.

Adoption and adaptation to inclusive open source participation in oneday.community is the most technically efficient and equitably meaningful way for everyone to secure our self-evident Human Economic Purpose in harmony with life ecology. Community is the currency of human agency and fear is lost in transparency. See A Communion of Purpose
