Introduction To The Four Pillars Of Progress

The Four Pillars Of Progress are: direct ownership – direct markets – direct democracy and direct funding.  See also: How To Measure Progress


 

Direct Ownership of local resources is based on principle of Subsidiarity.

  • Direct ownership of local resources by locals; no ownership of local resources by non-locals.
  • The systematic elimination of ownership of local resources by non-locals.

Direct ownership means the people own their political jurisdictions. A family owns where they live, a neighborhood owns where they live, a community owns where they live, a province or state owns where they live and the people of a nation own the nation.

No other set up is scientifically justified. All four pillars of progress are legitimized by science using the principle of verification. Neither capitalism or communism or any other known configuration can use science to back up their model.


 

Direct markets are an alternative to free markets. Direct markets are established and capitalized by direct funding. They are of course directly owned and governed by direct democracy. The four pillars of progress all work together.


 

Direct democracy is a direct way to administrate direct markets. They use direct funding which makes direct democracy in Social Positivism different than what is usually meant. Direct democracy normally only means the people get to vote on propositions directly. This kind of direct democracy can lead to a tyranny of the majority.


 

Direct funding is a way to fund or capitalize development directly, without the need of banks or governments.
