Advanced AI was invented by soviet communists to help humanity better understand itself and the world. Let’s use it for that purpose, instead of merely for the purpose of selling better ads and to better manipulate the population. For this post, AI also created the illustrations.
When we talk about creating a moneyless society, we are arguing for the creation of a new global society which fulfils the fundamentals of Marxist thought which have never been embodied by any nation state that has yet existed. Namely, the abolition of rent and wage slavery, the abolition of class hierarchies, and the abolition of the state itself. Many things will have to fundamentally change about the modern world in order to create such a moneyless society in the future. In terms of things we can start doing today as individuals an organizations, the first step is to reduce our dependency on money as much as possible.
1. Advocate for a Basic Income Guarantee
A Basic Income Guarantee (BIG) is an annual payment to all citizens, regardless of employment status, which would replace most existing social welfare programs. A BIG would eliminate the need for most other social welfare programs, as well as reduce poverty and inequality. It would also give people the freedom to pursue their dreams, rather than having to take jobs they don’t want in order to survive.
2. Use Alternative Currencies
There are many different types of alternative currencies, which can be used to buy goods and services, or to exchange for other goods and services. Some of the most common alternative currencies include bartering, time banks, and local currencies.
3. Participate in Community Exchange Networks
Community Exchange Networks (CENs) are networks of people who use alternative currencies to exchange goods and services. CENs allow people to trade without the need for money, and help to build community ties and promote local economies.
4. Share Resources
One way to reduce our dependency on money is to share resources. This can be done by sharing cars, tools, or housing, or by participating in sharing economies like Uber or Airbnb.
5. Invest in Community-Owned Projects
Community-owned projects are projects that are owned and operated by the community. They can include things like community gardens, co-ops, and credit unions. Community-owned projects help to build community ties and promote economic justice.
