Supplementing Universal Basic Income with Small Business Development and Energy Self-Sufficiency.

Universal basic income (UBI) is a policy proposal that would provide a regular, unconditional cash payment to all members of a society. While UBI has been advocated by some as a way to address the challenges posed by automation and the changing nature of work, it is currently not feasible to implement on a widespread basis in most countries. There are a number of logistical and financial challenges that would need to be overcome in order to implement UBI in a way that is sustainable and equitable.

However, despite the current challenges to implementing UBI, it is becoming increasingly clear that it will be critical in the coming years to find ways to support individuals and communities as the economy and job market continue to evolve. With this in mind, governments should consider advocating for and supporting initiatives that aim to establish and strengthen small, ethical artisan businesses (SEABs) and farms (SEAFs) in their communities.

These types of businesses can provide job opportunities and support local economies, and can also help to strengthen the food supply and promote self-sufficiency. Adding “gigs” or short-term, project-based work to support SEABs and SEAFs can also help to create more flexible and diverse sources of income for individuals.

In addition, governments can consider supporting the development of interoperable small scale residential energy production systems, which could help to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and increase the self-sufficiency of communities. Gamification and the use of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) to govern communities can also be explored as potential ways to engage citizens and encourage participation in local economic development.

While UBI remains currently impossible, there are steps that governments and communities can take to create more resilient and sustainable local economies that can provide income and support for citizens in the coming years.

In summary, universal basic income (UBI) may be a desirable policy for addressing the challenges posed by automation and the changing nature of work, but it is currently not feasible to implement on a widespread basis. However, there are other strategies that governments and communities can consider to create more resilient and sustainable local economies that can provide income and support for citizens in the coming years.

One such strategy is the establishment and support of small, ethical artisan businesses (SEABs) and farms (SEAFs). These types of businesses can provide job opportunities and support local economies, and can also help to strengthen the food supply and promote self-sufficiency. Adding “gigs” or short-term, project-based work to support SEABs and SEAFs can also create more flexible and diverse sources of income for individuals.

In addition, governments can consider supporting the development of interoperable small scale residential energy production systems, which can help to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and increase the self-sufficiency of communities. Gamification and the use of decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) to govern communities can also be explored as potential ways to engage citizens and encourage participation in local economic development.

Overall, while UBI may not be currently possible, there are steps that governments and communities can take to create more resilient and sustainable local economies that can provide income and support for citizens.

From Globalization to Interplanetary Decentralization: A Roadmap for the Future of Governance

As we stand at the threshold of a new era, it is important to reflect on the lessons of the past. Throughout human history, we have witnessed pain, despair, and horror in the pursuit of social, economic, and scientific evolution.

But now, we have the opportunity to be the seed of the universe. From what we can prove, there is nothing else out there – just a vast expanse of space and a few rocks that may one day be able to support life. In a billion years, the inhabitants of other planets could be descendants of Earth.

Yet, despite this incredible potential, we continue to fight wars, exploit the weak, and turn a blind eye to the suffering of the homeless and hungry. Perhaps it all means nothing in the grand scheme of things. Or perhaps it means everything.

We believe it is time to put an end to this cycle of violence and suffering. It is time to focus on the future – the future of humanity. And that future, we believe, lies in interplanetary decentralization.

Join us as we explore this exciting new frontier in our upcoming white paper, where we will delve into the potential of decentralization for improving national security, citizen data security, and collaboration between governments and citizens. We will also examine the role of quantum-resistant cryptography, the development and deployment of space drone network nodes, and the separation of governance and financial networks.

Most importantly, we will make the case for collapsing the business technology hierarchy in order to achieve efficiency and innovation. This is the future we believe in, and we hope you will join us in making it a reality.

A Paper outline written from conversations between the Int3rPlanetary Technology Office and chatGPT:

Introduction:

Decentralization is the future of governance and communication, and space-based decentralization is the next frontier. In this paper, we propose the establishment of a network of space-based decentralization nodes to support interplanetary communication and governance. We argue that this network is necessary for the protection of citizen data, the enhancement of national security, and the promotion of collaboration between citizens and government. The current state of globalization has its limitations, and it is time for a shift towards interplanetary decentralization. This paper discusses the implementation of such a system, including the role of quantum-resistant cryptography and the development and deployment of space drone network nodes. We also examine the role of BZDO in the implementation and maintenance of decentralization and the case for collapsing the business technology hierarchy. We hope to inspire governments and industry to adopt and support decentralization efforts as we work towards a brighter future for humanity.

Background:

Globalization has brought significant advances in technology and communication, but it has also created vulnerabilities and inequalities. Data breaches and cyber attacks have become more common, and the centralization of power and resources has led to a lack of transparency and accountability in government and business. Interplanetary decentralization offers a solution to these issues by distributing power and resources across a network of nodes, rather than relying on a centralized system.

Objectives:

The main objective of this paper is to explore the potential benefits and challenges of interplanetary decentralization, and to provide a roadmap for implementing this new paradigm. Specifically, we will aim to:

  • Define interplanetary decentralization and its potential advantages for national security, citizen data and voting security, and collaboration between government and citizens.
  • Outline the steps necessary for implementing interplanetary decentralization, including the use of quantum-resistant cryptography and the deployment of a network of space drone nodes.
  • Discuss the role of the BZDO framework in interplanetary decentralization and its importance for a full-stack technology architect core.
  • Conclude with a call to action for governments, citizens, and industry to adopt and support decentralization efforts.
