When The Need For Change Becomes Self-Evident

There are times in human history when the need for change becomes so self-evident that change is not only assured but is only a matter of time. This is such a time! Today we need a totally different type of government system if we are to achieve the global institutions that we will need to meet our problems. With the global problems that we are facing we need to have available to us different global ways of resolving our problems.

Meeting our global problems would require different types of global institutions to exist at the same time and this would be achieved through a system of civil and political entrustments. Civil and political entrustments would be contractual governments that would entrust us together. This contractual form of entrusted government would provide us with a way of quickly establishing the types of governments that are desired by the public when and where they were needed.

Entrusted Certainty and Institutionalization

In order to provide a sense of certainty between people, their relationships must be entrusted between those that have them. A system based on entrustment would be about entrusting the relationships between people and between people and their institutions. What makes social entrustment different from all other forms of institutional existence is that it would be impermanent as opposed to the permanency of all of the others. Entrustments would only exist as long as their members would wish to maintain them. Therefore, by forming the institutions of society through entrusting them would make them temporary and the result of the people that they were meant to serve.

Forming Self-Supporting Institutions and Societies

People are fearful and uncertain about their future. What they need is the kind of societies that can give them a sense of certainty about tomorrow. This sense of certainty could be provided by people socially entrusting themselves together for a mutual purpose. By people socially entrusting themselves together they would be able of support one another in achieving their common goals. This would allow groups of people to pool their resources in order to provide themselves with the mutual support that they wanted from one another.

A Government for All

A government for all would be one that could be everything to all people. But, can people with different needs and wants exist happily within the same societies? Or can real happiness only be achieved within societies geared to resolving only the similar concerns of those within them? The only type of society that could be formed to meet the needs of a particular group would be an entrusted society. Within an entrusted society everyone would be able to live within the kind of society that they felt best provided them with the kind of environment that they needed.

This means that those people that would wish to live within a less regulated environment would have a system designed to provide one. And those that would wish to live within a more regulated or even a controlled society would also have the kind of society that they would want for themselves. This would result in creating societies in which everyone would be in the kind of institutions that they personally wanted. The result would be the creation of self-supportive societies that would be able to concentrate our interests and concerns and as a result allow us to maximize our human potential.

Entrusting Ourselves to One Another

The current argument is weather government should cater to the corporate needs of society or to the needs of the public. Who should determine the direction that the state and its institutions should take? And how do we create institutions that work for us and are designed to meet our needs? We entrust them together! By entrusting ourselves together we determine between ourselves what would be expected from one another. Basing our institutions on the social entrustment of their members would make them self-governing and self-supporting institutions.

An Ecological State

By issuing the natural environment with equal rights, we would be emancipating it from human domination and misuse.   Emancipating the biosphere would create an ecological state. The biosphere of the ecological state would also become a member of the natural resources state trust that would be holding it entrust for the entrusted resources state. In a world organized along entrusted resources state lines, their combined natural resources trusts would form a common ecological state among themselves.

The ecological state would act as the custodian of the combined natural resources that it would hold entrust. It would provide the natural foundation upon which the various political and social institutions of society would build upon. It would consist of the natural resources trusts of the many social and political institutions that would be holding them entrust.

Giving the natural environment its own state system would make it an ecological state that would be capable of representing its own interests. All natural resources would be a part of the ecological state that would represent them collectively. It would defend the natural environment from the abuses heaped upon them by the social institutions that want to use them.

It would have the ability to negotiate the use of its natural resources with the social trusts that wish to use them. This would provide the natural environment with a state of on its own that would allow it to protect itself. This would then allow the ecological state to act in it’s own behalf, beyond the dictates of the various social and political institutions that its natural resources would be entrusted to.

Everything within its natural state of existence would be considered a member of the ecological state. Therefore, each person with every other natural thing within a natural state of existence would also be considered a natural resource of the ecological state. Then we would all be protected from those institutions that would wish to do us harm by having membership within the ecological state. This would allow all of nature’s natural development to take place within a state of nature beyond the dictates of human interests.

[x] Medical Entrustment

An example of an entrusted form of self-government would be to socially entrust our medical industry. This would require that each medical condition be given its own civil trust consisting of all of the doctors, institutions, manufacturers, hospitals and patients involved with the condition. All of the various participants of a given medical condition would within their own civil trust have their own hired trustee to represent their interests and concerns to everyone else.

Since a civil trust would also be its own legislative body, the hired representatives of the doctors, institutions, manufacturers, hospitals and patients would be able to govern their relationships in the best interests of all concerned.

This would permit all of the members’ concerns with a medical condition to know the needs and capabilities of all those involved in its consumption and production. Medically it would bring together all of those involved with a particular medical condition which would help in tracking a condition, researching it and providing for its patients and healthcare providers.

This would place all medical conditions within their own civil trusts that together would be apart of a greater medical industry that could be self-supporting and self-governed by those most directly involved with each particular condition.

(pt24) Civil Trusts as Legal Governing Entities

(1e) Civil trust…

A system of civil trusts would be legal governing entities that would permit the people to act collectively in either a political role representing their interests, or structurally by providing themselves with government services.

This system of governmental trusts would allow us to commonly organize ourselves into legal social, political and economic entities that would be able to provide us with an alternative form of government. They would also be able to not only provide us with what we need but also be able to protect us from those private and governmental institutions that would do us harm.

As autonomous government entities, civil trusts would have the governmental powers and responsibilities towards those entrusted to receive its services as any form of government. These civil trusts would allow those within it to separately self-govern themselves in order to be able to provide themselves with the things that they commonly needed or wanted to achieve.

[x] Entrusted Conditions and Obligations

A system of civil trusts would be a means of institutionalizing the responsibility that their members would have toward one another. The conditions and obligations that the members of a civil trust would have toward each other would be contractually determined. This would allow the participants of each civil trust to determine their own parameters.

The establishment of a civil trust would specify what its members would have to provide to the civil trust and to each other. These civil trust conditions and obligations would entrust the members personal responsibility toward each other so as to mutually achieve their common entrusted goals.

[x] Autonomous Development

The social market would be the vehicle that would be defined by a civil trust that would be self-regulated by its own civil trustees who would negotiate the interests of their members on their behalf to one another. The internal economic environment of a civil trust would allow the activities within it to be tax exempt from the larger economy.

A system of civil trusts would function as a self-governing entity that would be a separate parallel shadow government that would function next to our existing government systems. The internal interactions of the members within a civil trust would be tax-exempt, just like the activities of the employees of a corporation are in meeting their hired obligations.

The taxes paid by the members of a civil trust for the services that they would provide for themselves would be personally tax exempt to them and only taxed in a collective way by the civil trust as a whole. This would permit the people of a civil trust to first provide for their own common needs and only afterward pay their taxes collectively to the general government, just like corporations do.

(pt21) A system of social entrustment based on people’s common interests and concerns

(1b) Civil trusts…

In order to achieve our common interests and concerns within an entrusted system of government, people would form themselves into civil trusts that would be specifically designed to achieve their interests and concerns. This new entrusted system of civil trusts would allow people to organize their common interests and concerns into voluntary self-supporting and self-governing entrusted civil and political entities.

A system of social entrustment would be an entrustment process that would entrust the people’s common interests and concerns into civil trusts designed to service the needs and wants of their interests and concerns.

A civil trust would bring together those that had a need with those that could provide a service for that need. It would begin when the needs of the people would form the civil trusts that would be tailored to meet the people’s common needs and wants. All or some of the common needs and wants of the many interests and concerns of society could be given its own civil trust to develop and govern itself with.

An entrusted form of government would be a system of civil trusts where each type of need and want for each kind of interest and concern would have its own self-governing civil trust. Civil trusts would consist of those involved in the consumption and production of a common need or want and their civil trustees who would manage them. As these common needs and wants of people would change, so would the kinds of civil trusts needed to service them.

A system of civil trusts would concentrate our human capabilities by placing them into nurturing environments in which those most interested in a particular common idea would become members of the same civil trusts designed to provide for it.

(pt18) The Second Part of the Entrusted Government System, its Consumer and Producer Based Specialized Civil Trustees

(1a) Consumer and producer based specialized civil trustees…

Cooperativism sees all forms of social relationships and that includes social organizations as consisting of those that want a product and those that want to provide them with it. The political formations that would organize cooperative society would be provided within political Cooperativism, which would be the cooperative formation of the institutions of society.

Political Cooperativism would be applied to the public by three kinds of social entrepreneurs.

(1)      The first type of social entrepreneurs was explained in blog (pt13), and dealt with each person’s personal civil trustee, and how he would be their primary civil trustee because they would be the one that they would turn to for help.

(2)      The second type of social entrepreneurs would be the consumer and producer based specialized civil trustees that would provide a person with the entrusted affiliations that they would need in order to receive products that they wanted.

(3)      The third type of social entrepreneurs would be the political trustees that would be hired to politically represent people at particular functions or to politicallly arrange to achieve particular purposes.

All of these social entrepreneurs would be licensed to provide government service products to the public. These social entrepreneurs would be able to supply government services to people on an individual basis and then organize their similar needs and wants into their own entrusted governments.

Every person would participate within an entrusted system of government by hiring their own personal civil trustee who would become the person through which they would participate within cooperative society. In order to provide their civil clients with government products, a person’s personal civil trustees would link them to the various consumer and provider based specialized civil trustees that would be able to provide them with what they needed.

Specialized civil trustees as social entrepreneurs would be activists that would pro-actively go into the community to assess the needs of the public and then develop ways of dealing with them. Within political Cooperativism the specialized civil trustees would divide a community into its own consumers and providers according to their common needs and wants.

Specialized civil trustees would supply people with their selection of government service providers that they would have organized for them to choose from. Through the personalized government service product providers supplied to them by their specialized civil trustees, each person would select their own personal products.

Each person would then hire the government service providers that they needed to provide them with the kind of government services that they wanted from those supplied to them by their specialized civil trustees.  This would allow each person to construct the kind of government that they wanted for him or herself , one government service at a time.

Both the consumer and producer based specialized civil trustees would come together to entrust their members government service needs and capabilities into their own civil trust where they could self-manage their relationship.  These specialized civil trustees would compete with one another in providing the public with their common government services.  If a person felt that their government service providers were not providing them with the type of government services that they wished for, they would simply fire them and replace them with new ones that could.
