Our Agenda

A conscious acknowledgement of our common purpose as fulfilment without harm so we may organise ourselves, our justice systems, our economies, our organisations, and our societies to enable our pursuit of it. The organising principle of fulfilment without harm must override the pursuit of money and/or power. Specifically: (more...)

A New Morality

A morality based in reason, not in religion.

The purpose and principle of fulfilment without harm means that behaviour that damages another's fulfilment is harmful. This means that control is harmful as it restricts and thus harms our pursuit of fulfilment without harm.

Fulfilment without harm means that we have all the rights of the Declaration of Human Rights because these rights protect our pursuit of fulfilment without harm. The pursuit of fulfilment without harm requires that we all have a common respect for each other.

The priority of fulfilment without harm means that we pursue the expression of our abilities and ourselves in whatever we do, that our contribution is a reflection of who we are.

Fulfilment without harm requires that we are responsible for our fulfilment and considerate of others. Fulfilment without harm means that we do not try to control others as trying to control others harms their fulfilment.

The pursuit of fulfilment without harm is the highest priority. This means it comes before the pursuit of money or power. Fulfilment without harm means we must share resources for everyone to find fulfilment and not be harmed.

The pursuit of fulfilment without harm is 'the right way'. It leads to free and fair markets, a shared base income, and democratic organisations, as these all accord with the pursuit of fulfilment without harm.

'The wrong way' is not to understand or pursue fulfilment without harm, but to harm, through controls and accumulating resources, in the pursuit of power and money.

'The wrong way' leads to unfair markets, massive wealth disparities, and monopolistic, non-democratic organisations pursuing power and money, ignorant of our fulfilment and causing it harm.

It isn't hard to see which way is prevalent.

Actually this morality is not new. Many religious leaders have espoused very similar messages. But we still haven't listened. And we still have a system that exploits us so a very few with great resources, and many so aspiring, can preserve their ownership of them and the income this brings. Until we share this income unconditionally the pursuit of ownership, money and power will always trump us contributing without harm.
