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.
