Summery: Focus on doing what you love to do and are good at. Do all you say you will do, don’t encroach on others or their stuff, and make amends for the inevitable mistakes. I define what is valuable to me and trade my valuable stuff (time, brain, body) only by mutual agreement with other competent entities. I will defend my stuff and not take on your stuff.

  1. If you want to add one item, subtract one item, FIRST.
  2. Focus on the union of what you love and what you are good at. This creates people who are fulfilled, and less likely to fall for the con of others “helping” them out.
  3. Do all you say you are going to do and respect other’s privacy and property, or make amends by taking responsibility and cleaning up the mistake. This has zero to do with “punishment”.
  4. Choose organizers based on how well they follow these items, and then CONTRACT with them. Right now the worst that ever happens to a “representative” is nothing but a pat on the back for such a bold lie. There is no incentive to be honorable; no disincentive to not lie.
  5. Pay/charge a flat fee for local organizers only near the origin of the product or service at the time of sale. No taxes on anything else. No property tax. Property tax negates private ownership which greatly lessons economic stability. Only CONTRACTED sales tax at the point of sale. It is very inefficient to collect a million different taxes a million different ways. It reduces productivity and is hard to enforce. Companies already keep books.
  6. Local organizers CONTRACT with residents and visitors. Anyone who does not like the contract can leave; the contract must be concise, fair and apply to all or people will move somewhere else.
  7. Local (city, or burough if a biger city, town, incorporated area) representation decides what percent of local revenue to contract with neighboring towns and the “county” level of representation in exchange for contracted products and services.
  8. County representation decides what percent of local revenue to contract with neighboring counties and/or the “state” level of representation in exchange for contracted products and services.
  9. State representation decides what percent of state revenue to contract with neighboring states and/or the “federal” level of representation in exchange for contracted products and services.
  10. Avoid fiat money. Use competing currencies. “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be MASTER — that’s all.” “Power is never granted, only taken.” “Give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes it’s laws” — Amschel Rothchilds. Don’t give anyone control.
  11. Mind your own business, not other’s business.
  12. One open item.
