Politics

Transparency/awareness over secrecy

A commitment to transparency accepts that p2p oversight is here to stay.

"Parties", not "Party"

From singular entities to plurality. Remember, you are a party of one.

The most important political entity in Peer-to-Peer Advocacy is the you, person. Your value is exponentially greater than any party or organization of any type, in Peer-to-peer systems.

Government by you and your peers, where and when needed, and not present when not needed

Economics

Resource sharing and commons co-governance over resource hoarding and self-interest

Sharing re-usable tools not only cuts costs in our increasingly unstable global economy, but it's also just plain fair.

Transparency/awareness over secrecy

A commitment to transparency accepts that p2p oversight is here to stay.

Society

Communication Infrastructure

The new world requires global always-on communication infrastructure that is co-owned and co-operated by everyone and protected from those who would enclose it for narrow self-interest.
