What does the transition to an incentivized asynalagonomy look like? If a person owns a lot of property, will they lose it? Won’t the very wealthy resist? What about if my house has a mortgage? Will I lose my home?

An incentivized asynalagonomy will normally emerge from the HAND System web site itself as a record of a majority vote so it fits Democratic models of government. It is not forced on the people. A dictatorship could employ such a system, as well, of course, restricting whatever features it chooses but the system is designed for Democratic rule or representative government with revised constitutions that eliminate trade and monetary systems.

Several measures are highly recommended in order to prevent any sense of loss in a transition to an incentivized asynalagonomy. First, is grandfathered rights. In short, if anyone has any wealth, they can keep it, no matter how much they own. A constitutional asynalagonomy will write this provision into its constitution. Second, along these same lines, is the constitutional template. A quick response to a global economic crisis could institute constitutional democracies across many nations instead of anarchy and mayhem by preparing constitutions for each nation in advance of collapse, approved by the people through the HAND System web site.

Reality is complex. Many assets are not actually owned by individuals but by corporations. Much property is also owned primarily by banks, which have lien-holder rights on properties that are mortgaged. In an incentivized asynalagonomy, corporations are not property holders; people are. In situations where no grandfathering benefit exists, people have to earn property rights through work. Their work may not qualify them for the same properties enjoyed by who have been grandfathered in. A sense of certain people enjoying grandfather privilege not deserving all they have is predictable. What, for instance, if a person purchases a property on a nice lake just before the transition that only a person with very high prestige would normally qualify for? This is a limited resource. Will the incentivized asynalagonomy take the property away if the grandfather owner lacks prestige?

No. Here is how this works. Nobody is required to forfeit their home, even if they formerly had an upside down mortgage and insufficient income that placed them into a likely foreclosure. They are not required to forfeit their property under any circumstances other than crime. However, if they do forfeit it voluntarily after a transition, as with any of their assets, this serves as a resource contribution. Not all resource contributions are human labor. Physical grandfathered in assets, including real estate, may voluntarily be contributed to the resource pool – or withheld.

In the event they are withheld, they are protected. They simply can’t be used to increase prestige until they are contributed. Further, they can be contributed to family as an inheritance. Protection of the assets of the fortunate is a stabilizing feature in the constitutional transition to an incentivized asynalagonomy from a socio-capitalist economy. The wealthy do not lose their assets. The poor merely gain a means of obtaining them as unemployment is eliminated and construction and production of real goods flourishes in an economy where everyone is contributing. Gradually, the common people will have as much wealth as those whose assets were grandfathered in. Limited real estate properties, such as those on waterfronts, would be an exception. These can’t be easily duplicated, but there can be plenty of value in making them available to those who have earned much prestige. With these transition policies in place, not only will there be peaceful change, but families will not lose their homes, not even the very wealthy.

Where has incentivized asynalagonomy been tested and proven?

People are hardwired for incentivized asynalagonomy from birth. Every family uses it and proves it works. Incentives are rewards for good things family members do. Psychologists have proven that positive reinforcement is ten times as effective in raising a child as negative reinforcement. Parents do not charge money to their children for the things they give them. They use the family’s common resources. They communicate each other’s needs and they work together, using what they have, to maximize their quality of life. If a family member wants breakfast, they don’t have to trade anything for it. They simply ask for it, and if resources are sufficient, breakfast is served. That is how incentivized asynalagonomy works.

Incentivized asynalagonomy needs to be contrasted with every other system. Every other system tested on a national level so far has had a currency. There is only one purpose for a currency – trade. When Lenin’s Bolsheviks took over the means of production in Russia,  “state capitalism” was implemented, along with “mixed capitalism” of the NEP. In no way was trade eliminated at any point. The state simply took over private enterprise to varying degrees, until it realized it was unable to manage it effectively, and had to hand over some of the operations to private entrepreneurs. The ruble remained its currency and entrepreneurs were taxed, just as in the economy of the United States today. The Russian chevronets was created so that its currency could be backed by gold. Asynalagonomy was not tested in Russia, except in families, where it worked. What was tested and failed on a national level was state capitalism, though many in those countries, especially followers of Trotsky, prefer to think of it as state socialism.

The same holds true for China, North Vietnam, North Korea and Cuba. Communism has implemented various forms of state capitalism wherever it has been tested. Mao Zedong called this the “preliminary stage of socialism.” So called “communism” has always suffered from this. It has never advanced beyond its “preliminary” stages, which mixes capitalism with socialism. When its economy staggers, it introduces private enterprise and ownership to increase productivity.

Libertarians and critics of socialism mock them for this while dismissing valid complaints concerning class struggle and the frustration of labor. When inflation outpaces wage increases, when unemployment is rampant and homelessness abounds, when homes are in foreclosure and the gap between rich and poor widens, when large corporations merge smaller ones and every city looks the same because small businesses require significant capital to start, free enterprise can’t be called a success except in a relative way as it is compared to “preliminary socialism.” It isn’t an incentivized asynalagonomy it is being compared to. It is state capitalism.

What is missing in state capitalism that is improved on through mixed capitalism, is an element called “incentive.” People have an incentive to work in capitalist societies and that is what makes them produce. Capitalism fails, however, when there are obstacles to starting businesses because only the tiny funnel of profit making, both short and long term, makes private business ownership feasible – the rest belongs to the few. There is thus failure both for capitalism and for socialism. And neither have their hybrid sociocapitalist forms solved the problem. Incentivized asynalagonomy is the obvious solution because it reintroduces incentives to produce through prestige. No one is bound by class. They all have the opportunity to transcend it. Class is a matter of choice. Transcending it directly contributes to production. The result is all the social benefits of socialism, only without the uncomfortable preliminaries and all of the productivity of capitalism, only with a transposition of the restrictions.

The restrictions of capitalist production presently are the need for profit. In an asynalagonomy, the restriction of production is the need for responsible use of resources – so that both the economy and the environment can be permanently sustained. In short, planning is necessary so that the resources of the earth are not depleted. With capitalism having no inherent concern for the earth’s resources outside of what it needs temporarily for profit making, there can be no question which form of restriction is superior. Incentivized asynalagonomy thus works in families. It will also work for nations and states. And nothing else works.

How does everyone in an incentivized asynalagonomy have a voice?

There are bad incentivized asynalagonomies and there are good ones. A fascist asynalagonomy would not. This question would probably be better expressed as “how does everyone in a good incentivized asynalagonomy have a voice?” Incentivized asynalagonomies work best in constitutional democratic republics that have been thoroughly revamped for the elimination of systemic corruption. This is why James Carvin introduced the five Anti-corruption Acts of the Restoration Party. (More accurately, the first two were adopted rather than introduced and the fifth also moves on existing efforts). This is also the purpose of the HAND System. For more information on the five Anti-corruption Acts, click here. For more information on the HAND System, click here.

The HAND System is a web portal for expressing needs and posting availability so that needs can be met with utmost efficiency. It not only serves as a job posting board but provides an unhackable voting system and a means for all views to be expressed, given that expressing concerns for society are a category of need. With HANDS, each person has access. The HAND System is a portal that builds on the Equality of Influence Act protocol. The Act equalizes or eliminates unfair economic power and special interest factors from dominating public discussion. The protocol supports alternate non-profit communication and discussion forums that are not filtered through news feed algorithms controlled by private corporations.

How does an incentivized asynalagonomy establish security?

There are two types of security – economic security and national security. Economic security exists in an incentivized asynalagonomy because nothing can be taken away from anyone through trade or taxation. Ownership is permanent and can only be forfeited voluntarily or through crime. There is no such thing as bankruptcy, foreclosure or debt. There is no pressure to pay bills on time. Everything is free. All are equally insured by one value – classification. And classification cannot be taken away by anyone or anything. It is protected by tenure and enhanced by exceptional performance.

National (military) security is established in incentivized asynalagonomies wherever sufficient national resources exist for the purpose of defense. The job of fighting enemies, foreign and domestic, is one that requires skills in combat and involves high classification, since few wish to risk their lives for a living.  There is never a shortage of police or other security forces in an incentivized asynalagonomy because prestige is not expendable the way money is. Defense is a priority activity for the nation. Security is not for everyone but there will be no shortage of human resources devoted to it because local and national budgets are never even required, much less problematic.

How is debt eliminated in an asynalagonomy?

All debt, both public and private, is eliminated in an incentivized asynalagonomy because money has no relevance or meaning in a society without trade. Everything is free. It can be obtained without cost so long as personal privilege exists for possessing it. Privilege is not something that is traded. It is merely exercised. It cannot be depleted. It can only be lost if a person decides to stop working, performs in substandard ways when audited or breaks laws and is so adjudicated. The result is complete and permanent relief from debt for all citizens. As for the nation as a whole, only foreign debts are owed during the transition, where that may apply. The difference may be resolved through the Foreign Resource Electronic Exchange System (FREE).

How does incentivized asynalagonomy solve the health care crisis?

Rising prices, lost choice of doctors, unmet medical needs, dropped insurance policies, lost jobs, inadequate coverage and corruption in the health care and pharmaceutical industries are all intrinsic to sociocapitalist failure and would have no part in an economy that was driven by service instead of trade.  The core value of  incentivized asynalagonomies is meeting needs through well managed allocation of natural and human resources. Profit taking is not a consideration. Wealth is not a consideration. Coverage is 100% for all.

How does incentivized asynalogonomy save the environment?

Since asynalagonomies are  resource-based, the environment is the overarching source of all goods from which resource managers plan for the sake of meeting human needs and the needs of other creatures. Since it is not driven by the need for profit, such planning is free from corruption and competitive forces that are likely to undermine it. Planning for an unending future that maximizes the quality of life for as many as possible is their primary job description.

How does incentivized asynalagonomy foster abundance?

Since the only limit to what people can possess is the limitation of resources and the time that may be required to make things, asynalagonomies are free from the restraints of funding and financial profit. The other limitation is planning for renewability, recycling, waste management and efficiencies. Efficiency refers both to reducing duplication of effort and avoidance of obsolete technologies and methods and also to the comparative inefficiency of sociocapitalism. At least 70% of all jobs in sociocapitalist economies produce no actual goods or tangible services. Human effort that is devoted to accounting, financing, sales and marketing could be redirected to work that actually improves the quality of life. Abundance is not the aim so much as quality of life. Asynalagonomy optimizes both and maximizes awesomeness.

How do incentivized asynalagonomies reduce injustice?

Injustice takes many forms. It takes the form of oppression of classes. It takes the form of unfair judgment. It takes the form of depriving people of what they have earned. It takes the form of letting crimes, large and small, go unpunished, while victims receive no recompense. There is no taking back a life once taken. There is no restoring innocence to a victim of sexual assault. Incentivized asynalagonomy does not remove every type of injustice but it removes many of its causes. It checks managerial corruption through auditing by the people. It checks unfair judges and managers by voting them out based on their ratings. Job satisfaction increases when there is no fear of losing a job and workers are rewarded as much as managers. Economic oppression becomes impossible because it is very easy to find work. It is also very difficult to suffer economic loss. Unless items are irreplaceable, it is impossible to lose them so long as a person has earned the privilege of possessing them. There is no struggle to make payments on an insurance policy. Victims of accidental loss and of crime can easily replace the majority of their possessions because nothing has any cost. The result is a dramatic reduction in the level of injustice one typically finds in a sociocapitalist economy.

How does incentivized asynalagonomy end tyranny?

Tyranny exists when rulers dismiss the will of the people in favor of serving their own ends. Incentivized asynalagonomies directly reward public service by offering increased prestige and privilege for jobs well done for all citizens who serve. This same principle applies both to those who manage the public and to those who are managed. Government officials and managers are audited randomly and their auditors are also audited, in order to assure accountability and quality of performance, which assures that their attitude is that of service to the public good rather than serving their own ends. A sure way to end a career of public service in disgrace is to betray the public trust. The system of penalties can result in a permanent loss of privilege that can be difficult to recover from for those who abuse their power.
