Let's Co-opefy The Economy, Decenter The Corporatocracy

- Disrupt the systemic concentration of economic power towards Corporations & the 0.01%

- Bypass gatekeeping political parties & politicians serving the 0.01%

- Re-distribute economic & thus political power to everyone directly

Here's How:

1. List down Our Targets ie the 0.01%-owned Corporations

2. Setup Co-op(s) against each Target Corporation

3. CrowdFund the Co-ops

4. Buy from Co-ops. Stop buying from the Corporations

5. Continue until all Corporations defunded

All We Have To Do:

- Affirm that We the 99.99% do not need the 0.01%

- Unshackle Ourselves & just walk away from them https://postimg.cc/NKv8f3wV

- Appeal to the humanity of the Order Executors: Be A Human Be Humane

Imagine: If everyone committed to Co-opefy The Economy

We would flip the economy into our hands in no time

To reclaim control over our own lives

& create leverage against the 0.01%

Co-operatives are Political Parties with benefits

Everyone joining a co-op gets

- wages - decided jointly & locally

- medical insurance

- immunity against the Corporatocracy

- economic & political leverage for further changes

Co-operatives

= Unions 2.0 (minus the Brinkmanship)

= Corporations 2.0 (minus the Exploitation)

= Political Parties 2.0 (minus the Corruption)

A Co-opefied Economy

= Socialism 2.0 (minus the Totalitarians)

= Capitalism 2.0 (minus the Oligarchs)

= Democracy Reimagined

In a Corporation-dominated Economy:

Income goes to Corporations & ultimately the 0.01%

Economic & political power exponentially concentrated

In a Co-opefied Economy:

Income circulates within Local Communities

Total community income multiplies

Economic & political leverage distributed

Local Communities can create & circulate their own Community Currency

- To provide a Community Currency Basic Income (CCBI)

e.g. Tenino wooden money

- To jumpstart & co-opefy their community economy

- To generate & distribute abundance & leverage

- To protect their people against State inaction / tyranny

Here's perhaps a way that Local Communities could organize to bootstrap themselves - beginning with community-owned land & property put into Community Land Trusts (CLTs)

i.e.
CLTs for:

(A) Affordable Housing

(B) Food Producing & Carbon Sequestering Syntropic AgroForestry

(C) backing Community Currency for

(1) Basic Income

(2) Credit Unions

(3) to Co-opefy the Local Economy

for

(a) Wages

(b) Medical Insurance

(ci) Economic & Political Leverage against the Corporatocracy

Here's How To Co-opefy The Economy:

Existing Co-ops - Join / Expand Them

Existing Businesses - Convert Them

Existing Workers (of Oligarchs' Corporations) - "Unionize" Them to compete against the Corporations

Consider The Mondragon Corporation
