I. A change

Money: mechanisms and consequences

Money is the means by which we access everything, even food. For each human being, it is a vital element.

Money can accumulate. The quality of life of everyone is proportional to the quantity they gain. Wealth varies from nothing to ever more, allowing us to compare the standard of living of everyone, creating disparities between us.

Money, circulating like communicating vessels, it is necessary, in order to gain, that others lose.

Money allows for investment, and therefore, to earn more money. Inversely, the less money we have, the less possible it is to earn.

Like 4 billion human beings exploited for 2 dollars a day, it is necessary to submit in order to live. The more money we have, the easier it becomes to dominate.

Money is no longer a neutral element, but a master element. It places itself, simply in its existence in the highest classification of elements. It surpasses every element, even life, as it is a prerequisite to life. It is an individual and generalised competition engine, a profound element of social imbalance, a means of corruption, a weapon of domination.

We do not need a means of exchange, neither to organise or motivate.

Freedom: mechanisms and consequences

Being needed by others is a fundamental need, and in a world where money doesn't exist, it is not possible to pay to obtain something. This is why, it is in the interest of everybody to integrate in life in a community on an equal level with everybody else.

How do we organise ourselves without money? By providing, freely, your vocation to the community, and by replacing money by a "thank you".

Without an immediate return or equivalent to money, we will all obtain a deffered return, multiplied and generalised by the whole community.

Only freedom allows everyone to exerce their vocation, to control their work conditions, advance in cooperation and not in hierarchy, to obtain personal satisfaction and evolve in general agreement.

If everyone exerces their vocation, we can ask ourselves, "who will do the difficult tasks?".

If a student decides to flat share, would he pose the question, "who will do the housework?"

The question is not "who will doit?". We will ask, "how will we do it?".

The end of the obligation of difficult tasks will induce necessary adaptations. We will move away naturally from what is superfluous and will respond to what is fundamental. If certain tasks don't create enjoyment, we will improve conditions without budgetary and human restrictions. From comfort to hours, passing by automatisation and repartition by a huge work force, our human and technological potential can only lead to the satisfaction of everyone.

All things being equal, if a place of production is too distant from the demand, its relocalisation will certainly take place.

The induced adaptations by freedom will have multiple beneficial consequences for Man and the Planet:

The necessity of a Free World

For an optimal and natural evolution of society, we have no need for corporate culture, dogma or “superior” authority in order to validate what is good or bad for us. What is beneficial for society will provoke a craze, which will disappear just as naturally. It is as simple as that.

Word of mouth and information sources are vast enough to let everyone know where to go for their needs. And we can be sure to have quality services thanks to the Ego. Motivation for benefits aside, it will be an engine for professionalism. Nobody will want to feel useless or incompetent in their domain. We will look naturally for recognition, notoriety, a good reputation in order to validate our Ego.

We can have confidence in our individual choices because they are, simply, the best. Nobody can assume to know whats best for someone else. We dont need a degree or a general consensus on what is best, we only need our individual conscience in order to make good choices, to make the best choices.

We will follow the right path, because it does exist, in experimenting and proposing ideas, principles, convictions, while never imposing them on others. Everyone must agree on the system for it to work.

We must look above and beyond the mass errors imposed by or corporate politicians, academics, ideologists, systematically totalitarian and self-proclaiming in their superiority, which have stopped us from thinking for ourselves.

In asking everyone to stand up for their own ideologies, beliefs and convictions through personal, individual experience, we will rediscover an evolutionary, "biological" system: natural selection of what is good for Man is based on personal experience and choice.

Such a system provides only advantages, and they are numerous, freedom of thought, action, evolution of individual conscience, improvement of societal responsibility, optimisation of societal structure, serenity in our social climate, harmony in our general evolution. In fact, in making a habit of thinking and analysing for ourselves without exterior pressures, we protect ourselves from all possible indoctrination.

The panic myth

Once men are caught up in an event, they cease to be afraid. Only the unknown frightens men
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Sociological studies based on events seeming to induce panic indicate that, in reality, this is not the case. In the wake of extreme events such as natural disasters or terrorist attacks, studies clearly conclude that solidarity, discipline and calm overcome selfishness, looting and panic.

Over the course of our studies, based on more than 700 cases, I would struggle to name (…)even just a few marginal events that caused panic
Enrico Quarantelli
Cofounder of the Research Centre of Catastrophes

If this innate behavioral intelligence prevails in cases of unforeseen, frightening events, then it is all the more likely to do so in planned circumstances that have been chosen, prepared and wished-for and that do not entail any physical or material damage.

A society without neither money nor leader

The principle

The basis of the organization we propose holds on an essential principle: that of free.

The principle of gratuitousness is the free exercise of one's vocation to others. No direct return, neither in any form whatsoever, nor bartering.

Why would someone give a free service? To benefit from the services of others too.

This principle avoids the use of a means of exchange and discards the numerous side effects, consequences and drifts we know.

This relationship between the individual and his or her community avoids any abuse on an individual basis and cannot exclude any minority.


The participation of each can be done on the following 2 axes:

How to take decisions

We propose the GDO: Global Democratic Organisation (Quarter, City / Village, Resource, Culture / Nation, World). It allows everyone to take part in the decisions that concern them, and to implement community agreements (or internal rules) without the intermediary of leaders.

Toughness

The disappearance of money provides the framework for reducing labor hardship to its maximum: by the mass of individuals, the technological means (automation without fear of losing jobs), the chosen conditions, the absence of hierarchy, the absence of expected returns and the cessation of activities related to money and the quest for profit.

Toughness has its virtues: in order to reduce it as much as possible, we will adopt the opposite tendencies to those of today. We will naturally limit our needs to what is essential to us, in order to avoid any effort that would not be worthwhile. For the same reasons we will naturally optimize the duration of the goods and reduce any waste generated upstream.

Questions / Answers

How to access food?

Level 3 of the GDO5 (resource zone) is devoted to food management (production, transport and distribution of food from the territory to the towns and villages it receives).

Distribution can be done through baskets, distribution points, or any other model, at the free choice of each community.

The food surplus will be able to transit towards territories in difficulty.


How to access a property? A service?

By applying to the competent persons.


What if no one is providing a good or service?

Adapt, learn how to do it yourself, get together with interested parties, discuss, give oneself the means to implement it.


What about private property?

Common places (Nature, streets, etc.) cannot be the property of anyone. As far as housing is concerned, if we all want to own (or have a right to use) our home, there will be a consensus, and probably so. Other forms will be possible: living in shared housing or nomads.

Ownership or right of use for other areas will be determined within each community.


How do we ensure equity when housing is not equitable?

Housing disparities reflect today's inequalities. We will then be able to move towards equity in housing only once the financial inequalities disappear.


To whom should I attribute a rare good / resource, a free housing?

By mutual agreement between the interested parties:

About distant resources:

Without it, finding an alternative and recycling will be the first attitudes, all in favour of the environment.

If the resource remains wanted or necessary then different solutions may appear after discussion: setting up free exchange networks, donations, or any other agreement.

The international transit networks that we have developed around the world should be able to respond without difficulty.


About demography:

Getting out of the system is necessary to manage the demographic issue:

III Mocica Project

Stage 1 : The gathering

The first stage can be divided into two phases, the one of the gathering as such and then, later on, the one of the gathered ones.

It will be necessary to wait for the second phase, with all (or almost all) actors in society, to be able to decide together on the organisation, community agreements, prepare for and anticipate the exit from the monetary system.


Phase 1: Gathering

First, become a member in the Adhérez section

In the first phase of stage 1, our primary objective is to federate and meet in ever-increasing numbers in the neighbourhood assemblies in order to:

All actions towards autonomy and gratuitousness are welcome, but it will probably be difficult to create change before leaving this system, for lack of time, energy, means and simply freedom, especially in poor or particularly enslaved countries. We will not have to reorganize society to get out of the system, but we will have to get out of the system so that the reorganization can take place.


Phase 2: gathered

After a massive gathering and the structured ODG5, we will be able to decide together on our future organisations and anticipate the exit from the monetary system.

When to take the next step?

After the assembly, we will be able to decide together on the right moment for the transition to stage 2.

Ideally, this should be done at the same time on a planetary level, so that, depending on the evolution of the project and the world situation, it may be possible to start from a sufficiently large but smaller geographical level, such as a continent for example.


Stage 2: The transition

This stage will probably be short, from a few days to a few weeks.

On D-Day, we offer everyone to continue their usual activity without using money and without any consideration.

For example, professionals in finance and administrative activities could support other sectors or set up new networks; empty houses could be opened up to the homeless, etc. This would make it easier for them to find new jobs.

After a massive agreement by all members, we can move on to the next stage.


Stage 3: the organisation

Each one will be able to exercise his or her vocation.

We will be able to implement what was anticipated in the previous stages.

GDO5 will be structured for organization and decision-making.

It will be too:

Precisions


The Mocica project is a pacifist action whose universal proposal is fair to every citizen of the world.

It only depends on humanity's choice and not on the will of its leaders.

It does not require any structural prerequisites or financial costs.

It enables a rapid and adequate response in the event of an economic collapse.

The Mocica project may seem vague and contain a lot of unknowns. That's the way it is. The unknown is invariably linked to the paradigm shift. We cannot demand the latter without diving into the former.

Nor can we propose on the one hand a system where human potentials can express themselves freely while imposing a precise and formal framework on the other. But it is nevertheless possible to establish the necessary guidelines and principles for genuine logistics and the implementation of a new model that brings freedom, security, equity and environmental protection, to which we hope to respond modestly here.
