“When you’re surviving you can’t dream”
Survival of the fittest
Politics, food stamps, welfare, social services
Inspiration: Pocket Scientist wondered why there isn't a way to look at the government spending publicly. He then stepped back and realized that others wondered about tax solutions for citizens needs and wants whenever.
“the law enforcement system, the legal system, the taxation "requirements" (just shaking poor people down), and ultimately, the financial system. They are vulnerable to abuses of power. Loopholes and people that know them end up creating a larger wealth gap and socioeconomic inequalities.”
What it does: Wikipedia lists countries by tax rate. Our web app views how taxes in all the world’s governments are distributed filtered through the maslow’s hierarchy pyramid. Also get the data of all the people in the world's demographics too. Pull from tinder for the girls and guys, pull from yelp reviews for the food. Show all companies working on each need and want. "The state power must be eliminated in favor of the demographic organization of industrial society with direct popular control over all institutions by those who participate in as well as those who are directly effected by the workings of these institutions: workers counsels, consumers counsels, communist assembly, regional federations."
"Criticizes wage labour relationships within the workplace, instead emphasizing workers' self-management of the workplace and decentralized structures of political organization."
“personal vouchers or "credits" would be awarded for work done to purchase goods and services... Unlike money, credits would disappear upon purchase, and would be non-transferable between individuals, making bribery and monetary theft impossible.”
“The political sphere: policy-making, administration, and collective implementation.
The economic sphere: production, consumption, and allocation of the material means of life.
The kinship sphere: procreation, nurturance, socialisation, gender, sexuality, and organisation of daily home life.
The community sphere: development of collectively shared historical identities, culture, religion, spirituality, linguistic relations, lifestyles, and social celebrations.”
How it works: "We have seen why the state cannot demographically control industry. Industry can only be democratically owned and controlled by the workers directly from their own ranks industrial adminstrative committees. Socialism will be fundamentally an industrial system. Its constituencies will be of an industrial character. Thus those carrying on the social activity and industries of society will be directly represented in the local and central counsels of social administration. In this way, the powers of such delegates will flow upwards from those carrying on the work and conversant with the needs of the community. When the central administrative industrial community meets, it will represent every phase of social activity. Hence the capitalist, political, or geographical state, will be replaced by the industrial administrative committee of socialism. The transition from one social system to the other will be the social revolution. The political state throughout history has meant the government of man by ruling classes, the republic of socialism will be the government of industry administered on behalf of the whole community. The former meant the economic and political subjection of the many, the latter will mean the economic freedom of all. It will be therefore a true democracy." - The States of Origin it's functions William Paul
“A libertarian socialist sees the state as a coercive authoritarian institution which the elite uses to exploit the people. A libertarian socialist sees capitalism as a way for the ones with money, i.e. power, to enforce oppression on the ones who don't.”

“In the mid 1980s, there were some more capitalist versions of barter around. Company's basically marketed barter and people agreed to trade their services for some sort of points. When these systems were flying high, they had some of the panache that bitcoin has currently... it fell apart and went bankrupt because there were too many people offering services like "art" or "therapy" and not enough offering basic things like groceries. So the supply and demand thing fell apart.”
“One interesting fact is that there never was a real barter-economy (contrary to Adam Smith). Some economists just assume that there was because it is convenient for their theories. The only barter-like systems are really large important things like marriage-price or settlements from wars.”
“David Schweickart suggests participatory economics would be undesirable even if it was possible, accusing it of being:
a system obsessed with comparison (Is your job complex more empowering than mine?), with monitoring (You are not working at average intensity, mate—get with the program), with the details of consumption (How many rolls of toilet paper will I need next year? Why are some of my neighbors still using the kind not made of recycled paper?)”
“Theodore Burczak argues that it is impossible for workers to give the unbiased assessments of the "largely unobservable" characteristics of effort proposed as the basis for salary levels, and the absence of market exchange mechanisms likewise makes calculating social costs of production and consumption impossible.”
"If only there were no governments, think the anarchists. If only governments obeyed their own laws, says Chomsky. Which is the more unrealistic?" - Noam Chomsky "Libertarian socialism is nothing but a front for communism." "A free society is contrary to human nature." And "Centralized management is a technological imperative". "Requires a joint effort of works in a number of advanced countries." There are certains things that are difficult to categorize. Logistics. If food is in Texas. How to get it to Connecticut? Start in one state. How to get it delivered? Possibly have one at each corner where someone can use their phone to request it. (Since most have smartphones now). Also difficult to get people working in those locations. Users taking advantage of the app is possible. For most libertarian socialist, the word Libertarian is defined as in skeptical of hierarchy and the state: Socialist as in power to the workers and out of the hands of the capitalist. I don't see the hypocrisy here......Except "power of the workers" only works in theory, not in practise. When collective property exists there must always be some sort of central authority to ensure that everyone is getting a fair share of the deal and to ensure that no new private property arises by individual claims. And to think that this absolute authority won't go corrupt even if it initially had noble ideals is naive to say the least. In other words, the idea of collective property necessarily excludes skepticism of authority, since authority is the very thing that collective rights depend on....." "Socialism may mean "means of production are owned by the workers" in theory. But this is never what socialism is in practise, because the collective ownership by workers necessarily implies a state to begin with. Who else is going to make sure that the ownership is collective? Who is going to make the ownership collective? Collective ownership is indeed oxymoronic to libertarianism because collective ownership prohibits individuals from doing what they want with their money. Socialism is always forced collective ownership, so how can libertarian socialism make sense? Collective ownership can only be libertarian if it is voluntary, but then, voluntary collective ownership is still a form of private ownership, it's simply private property that is shared by several owners. Therefore, voluntarily shared property is already allowed in right-libertarianism." “Like all other socio-political conceptions (democracy, liberalism, social democracy, capitalism, markets,….), libertarian socialism is a set of guidelines, leaving their implementation to the societies, in this case, a free participatory society. I think we can take it for granted that the choice would not be a barter economy”
“The very act of challenging a legacy program can be seen as a threat to someone, somewhere. As long as a career was made on it, someone has incentive to keep it. A safer approach, I believe, is to find existing programs and see if you can work within them, or find calls for ideas whenever and wherever you can. Even the wealthy and powerful have incentive to follow new trends, at least in some parts of the world.”
What I learned:
“Libertarian socialism is just one of many, many possible ways an economy could be changed. I think some form of online neo-syndicalism may arise in the near future, given how social media tribes form. I recommend Neil Stephenson's book "The Diamond Age" for a really fascinating exploration of the concept. Most nation-states are hollowing themselves out, and large companies filling the void. There's still a few outliers, though, and they may be the last ones standing (and perhaps, shapers of the next paradigm), should instability become the norm.”
What’s next: In theory, we want our website to include a web app online registry any citizen in the world can go to request his or her human need and human want whenever. Other next steps would be to market the app to other coders, so they can refine it to attract citizens.

“Re-distributing income without touching means of production”
Why money exists, and who invented money:
Featured quote: “While wealth distribution follows a power law, the distribution of human skills generally follows a normal distribution that is symmetric about an average value. Average IQ is 100, but nobody has an IQ of 1,000 or 10,000. The same is true of effort, as measured by hours worked. Some people work more hours than average and some people work less, but nobody works a billion times more hours than anybody else.” — 2018 MIT Technology Review article
