“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
― From “Strength to Love” by Martin Luther King, Jr. (1963)
True innovation is easier demonstrated than expressed in words. This is in part because there can be no convenient shorthand available for that which is outside our experience.
Forming now is Λn Solas Sí ΛrtScience (ΛSSΛ CO-OP), a production company without precedent, and requiring co-creative co-founders who are characteristically self-directed, people who are invigorated by cooperative collaboration, having outgrown that desperate need to be important in the eyes of others, placing a greater priority on the doing of what is important.
We will dramatically illustrate the destructive narratives forming a corrosive thread down the course of human history since before the rise of Pharaonic Egypt, the ascendancy of the first Oligarch’s myth of redemptive violence, the lie used for millennia to spellbind and subjugate humankind, like a virus causing delusion, convincing us, a natural, even divine order justifies the private ambitions of a few, above the well-being, even the survival of the many.
We seek to demonstrate the possible end of this fiction demanding people justify their right to exist, demonstrate the practical means to engender universal suffrage through mutual aid, the ending of coerced wage slavery, prioritizing health and resilience for all, above all, by involving all, empowerment born of lifelong education and training for adaptive fitness to create, produce and thrive in a volatile world.
This is a mission to foment that sociocratic democracy, one that by design encourages individuals to collaborate in better discernment, to act with coherence in cooperation. Consent without the sacrifice of plurality to this proposed intentional common sense, a lingua franca of reason subject to continual action research, testing, and revision.
“The signal in the physical world is the foundation of design. We can understand how the human system works in order to design the most effective signals in a world full of distractions.”
― Dano Qualls
Through our craft we will demonstrate the relevance and viability of Economic Democracy for Social Democracy, to Optimize Human Strengths, Accommodate Human Limitations.
We will creatively engender an Otherworld experience, technology indistinguishable from magic, bridging the gulf between mundane life of desperation normalized for so many and that vital experience of living that we can, that we must build together.
By attraction rather than promotion Λn Solas Sí ΛrtScience (ΛSSΛ CO-OP) will be the herald and founding cooperative of Ɍáithold Cooperative Union (formerly Anarcho Pacifica), a federated cooperative, a union of evidentiary principles manifest, dedicated to provisioning critical intelligence and infrastructure to its constituency.
ΛSSΛ CO-OP will employ the oldest of human technology, storytelling, the modus operandi of culture, the primal drive to share, in achieving the needed cognitive resonance.
I request you help craft, refine and reforge this signal into every language and dialect of the world, render its word symbols recognizable to other self-directed individuals who may consent to the disciplined study and practise of critical reflection, analysis, and peer assessment needed for the successful consummation of this society’s founding.
Note: Please make use of the links provided for greater understanding.
As the standard for online documents has been since the founding of the World Wide Web, links, seen as highlighted in pale green, connect you to definitions of these terms, our language of art, their specific meaning when used in context. We hope this aids our readers unfamiliar with their use.
Most links currently lead off-site to reliable non-commercial resources, however, for reasons of security and ease of use, an in-house lexicon is actively being developed to eliminate this necessity.
