The strategy with SAFE coin seems to be to migrate from the intentional artificial scarcity of the tangible economy (credit to Dan Robles) to the abundance of the virtual economy. As we recognize that this might be money with better properties., i.e., that if all money is debt of some variety this will be constructive vice destructive debt. I’d like to suggest that might not be aiming quite high enough.
If you have any debt or any regular bills you are not free you are enslaved to money. If you have to work for other people to survive you aren’t free and the social contract of that society is broken. Work should be freely given as service in the spirit of open source open access.
The attempts to say that money is speech are attempts to say that that slavery is speech and also that the implements needed to keep slavery going which include bribery and censorship are also speech. Thus a society like the US has a tradition of laws like Santa Clara-Buckley-Citizens, weak labor law and a sponsored media to constantly mislead its people back into slavery. It’s also why it’s so averse to any limits on money including taxes and vouchers. It’s actually got laws against transparency including anti whistle blowing codes and broken suppressive IP because. It’s got lip service laws to ward off uniting claims of slavery but it also has its more cryptic core laws to keep slavery going through continued corruption.
In the traditional slave societies enslavers found they couldn’t enslave people in place so they would cart them off. This is what having both spouse in the work place means today. In traditional slavery one person paid another for a prisoner whose life was converted to labor over the withholding of food/water and through constant punishment, negative reinforcement and threats. In the current wage system the slave/employee is paid what would have been paid to the slave trader but vital to the system it is never enough to free the enslaved employee, they can run from one mast to another but it makes no difference. This is especially the case where pensions are absent.
If it’s not clear enough, say you’re born into a world where someone else has prior claim to all the assets and all the resources. That is not simply a function of population, it’s an intentional situation.
All slavery is slavery even its milder forms and all of them will revert to the harder forms when threatened or when the opportunity presents. It’s not enough simply to wish to take the place of the master in enslavement. The promise of Secure Access for Everyone implies reliable access to the good life and opportunity for everyone, and that means no slavery in any form, the aim is a coercion (violence) free society. That means true voluntary collaboration not working for other people to get money.
