Working on the Honr System (sm) – Social Economic Justice via Pervasive (Micro)payment

These are preliminary notes

Powerpoint needs to be done in epiphaneo video format: youtube, vimeo, facebook – others (as many as feasible)
possible TED talk

Daily Work, Daily Pay Same Day Fair Day’s Pay – daily labor daily wages

WHAT IS HONORED (VALUED) IN A SOCIETY IS RECOGNIZED (AWARDED, PAID)
Honr – Pauline NT principle, OT based – Honor (pay for the value of) Parents, Teachers, Teaching Elders
Add illustrative verses (below)

CURRENT WORLD PARADIGM

NO METRICS = SOCIAL IGNORANCE ; BIASED METRICS (necessary data excluded to reinforce status quo structural inequities)

economic injustice is obscured because many metrics which describe tasks performed which are necessary to society are unmeasured and uncompensated due to controlled taxation system [ie allowable deductions, disallowable deduction] of the dominant class

example – why can I declare my currency gift to a nonprofit organization but not my labor (voluteering)? If we actually measured the total societal impact, it would have to be reflected in state and federal budgets (UN, foreign aid, etc. too)

example – prison industrial complex – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_Jim_Crow poor “criminal caste”

1% backed governments, banking debt system, war banksters, UK rehypothecation ponzi scheme

Workers compensation is falsely framed as salary and employer-based benefits
(BENEFITs are just reduced salaries)

Should be paid immediately in real-time entirely in digitally liquid currencies (don’t illegally/immorally sacrifice float to banks and employers).

The point is not alternative currencies (necessarily)

Flattr button on not just blog posts and blogs but on online activity logs for every kind of activity
Quora, Wikipedia, Amazon Reviews (ANYTHING which provides value add — whether recognized by society or not)

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/flattr/

pay (tip) an employee at a restaurant but not at an employee at Wal-Mart (folks complain they are undercompensated, denied benefits

Relational Tithing

only way a good teacher gets direct payment in THE PUBLIC SYSTEM requires that a book publisher gets a cut or a college, university or for profit school administration gets a cut

“We” say we are for MARKET BASED SOLUTIONS and then deny the customers in the market an avenue to pay for anything the dominant class (Government, current “ruling class” [ in US: corporatism, war banksters ] disallow

NEW WORLD PARADIGM

Social Movement –

Doctr [ used to pay in chicken, pig or cheese ]
Mentr
Instructr
Teachr
Stay at Home Mothr / Fathr
Family Care Givr

Seers, Vizrs

EVERYONE gets an online task log populated with tasks which can be paid for immediately upon view
[taxation could be included as well where applicable by law]

Distribution Allies
Noam Chomsky. Max Keiser, Robert Reich, (Carbon Credit Al Gore), Al Franken, Pete De Fasio, Elizabeh Warren, Pat Schroeder?

Which Foundations would fund, if any?

Bimetalism taught us that “the people’s best interest” is served by having multiple competing and complementary currencies

Bimetalism – needed for liquidity – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bimetallism

so Flattr and Paypal and Bitcoin and proprietary wallets must be an Honr button/platform which can be an INTERFACE to other underlying platforms

Need to have more than one currency or liquidity is sacrificed
Wlliam Jennings Bryan
will not be crucified by cross of gold
desilverization was a tactic of market rigging

There’s a brave new world filled with entertainment, news and tools made by everyone, and not just the big guys. This new world deserves your support.

Pick how much you’d like to spend per month. Then, whenever you see a Flattr button on a website that you like, click it. We count up all of your clicks at the end of each month and distribute your monthly spend between everything you’ve clicked on. Simple, right?

Flattr was founded to help people share money, not only content. Before Flattr, the only reasonable way to donate has been to use Paypal or other systems to send money to people. The threshold for this is quite high. People would just ignore sending donations if it wasn’t for a really important cause. Sending just a small sum has always been a pain in the ass. Who would ever even login to a payment system just to donate €0.01? And €10 was just too high for just one blog entry we liked…

Flattr solves this issue. When you’re registered to flattr, you pay a small monthly fee. You set the amount yourself. In the end of the month, that fee is divided between all the things you flattered. You’re always logged in to the account. That means that giving someone some flattr-love is just a button away. And you should! Clicking one more button doesn’t add to your fee. It just divides the fee between more people! Flattr tries to encourage people to share. Not only pieces of content, but also some money to support the people who created them. With love!

Flattr requires an account at flattr.com!

Theological basis and illustrations

Jesus and Korban Mark 7:11-12

Romans 4:4 If you’re a hard worker and do a good job, you deserve your pay; we don’t call your wages a gift

Galatians 6:6. Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share {Κοινωνείτω} all good things with his instructor.

1 CORINTHIANS 9
3My defense to those who examine me is this:4Do we not have a right to eat and drink?5Do we not have a right to take along a believing wife, even as the rest of the apostles and the brothers of the Lord and Cephas?6Or do only Barnabas and I not have a right to refrain from working?7Who at any time serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat the fruit of it? Or who tends a flock and does not use the milk of the flock?

8I am not speaking these things according to human judgment, am I? Or does not the Law also say these things?9For it is written in the Law of Moses, “YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING.” God is not concerned about oxen, is He?10Or is He speaking altogether for our sake? Yes, for our sake it was written, because the plowman ought to plow in hope, and the thresher to thresh in hope of sharing the crops.11If we sowed spiritual things in you, is it too much if we reap material things from you?12If others share the right over you, do we not more? Nevertheless, we did not use this right, but we endure all things so that we will cause no hindrance to the gospel of Christ.13Do you not know that those who perform sacred services eat the food of the temple, and those who attend regularly to the altar have their share from the altar?14So also the Lord directed those who proclaim the gospel to get their living from the gospel.

1st Timothy 5:17
17The elders who rule well are to be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching.18For the Scripture says, “YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING,” and “The laborer is worthy of his wages.”
