we define a conditionless, European, and seriously financiable Universal Basic Income.
it may sound impossible, but neither it is impossible, nor does it have to be fictional, ridiculous, unrealistic, oder have to be a neo-communist approach. Just requires a bit of modesty, good-will, and a smart approach where we trade, we balance nature’s benefit against poverty and neglecting, selfish behavior of the super posh and shiny super rich.
Let’s calculate a simple, financiably viable UBI (BGE) of 400 Euro/month for the 4-person family.
This is a very interesting article by Wang Zhao about fundamental blocks of System Dynamics archetypes in elaborated detail, posted by @YoungModeler.
For everyone new to the topic, a simple overview of the basic feedback loops that are common to Business Model Generation as well can be found on Wikipedia’s article about System Archetypes. As well, the basic picture of those interacting Problems-and-Success Models can be found within each Dynamic Application.
Building World Models, altogether. A great topic to discuss.
I found that management picutre on German Wikipedia, translated the picture to English, called it “Balanced Scorecard – Management”, and added that picture to the top right icons in Dynamic Applications. Finally, i’ve uploaded it to the english article on System Archetypes at Wikipedia. Where it resides until today.
How could such archetypes or “building blocks” be incorporated with Dynamic Applications? – your suggestions are highly appreciated.
For everyone interested in more detailed building blocks, see PDF Attachment at the bottom of the article by @YoungModeler, reblogged below.

Modellers face a problem: Too few of their models ever get reused. Meanwhile, many projects start by building a new model from scratch requiring plenty of research to conceptualize the model structure. If we see these two aspects from the perspective of ‘supply’ and ‘demand’, is there any ‘mismatch’ in between that hinders models from reuse? If so, what could be the reason?
Interesting idea of founding a network of people supporting each other in working for or towards a better world for everyone, as i understand it.
In the ages of rage and fake news, has a lot of potential.
Seems to be in line with the Ethics or Culture of The Sharing Economy.
Find joy, fun, and a small income by working for the people, not the bank account. In being founders, this also means that we have to work ourselves up from crap, towards beauty and reduction and excellence. There’s so many powerful tools out there, but only the best ones get the point of finding a measure for excellence, not massivity of overloading features.
If we want to reach many people, remember there are more than 4.000.000.000 people out there who haven’t even got the money for an old Laptop or PC. Maybe the greatest potential of enthusiastic followers in the whole world, not only for a process democracy project.
So i’m not sure if i follow that project 100% here, but it seems to have something.
Be invited to make up your own mind about it. Would be great to hear a few opinions.
Let’s not forget in being base democrats, our mission is to empower the people, not the next king of the world. We the people, united in online democracy, with a same value of 1 for every person on earth. Fair right of participation, as a basic requirement for justice and chances for a successful life, in all its decent modesty. Sharing is Caring.
If we follow that guideline, all is fine. Nothing is perfect today, but we are targeting something, here: a better world for everyone. So what are you working on, today?
The Pursuance Project – Impactful, agile, secure civic collaboration
The pursuance system is the world’s first comprehensive framework for process democracy. That is, it allows individuals with no prior relationship to self-organize into robust, agile entities governed via a “proceduralism of agreement.” These entities, called pursuances, in turn engage and collaborate among themselves to whatever extent they choose, leading ultimately to a vast and formidable ecosystem of opposition to institutionalized injustice. (Excerpt from Project description)
This system will be populated on an invitation basis, beginning towards the end of 2017. But Barrett has initiated a collaboration with Pirate Parties International. Raymond Johansen, activist and member of the board of PPI is now in the process of populating several rooms in Mattermost, soon to begin onboarding people into an alpha version of the Pursuance System. PPI’s usage of and feedback on the software will help Pursuance’s software developers…
