A call-out to App, Platform and Crypto Developers who want to support their communities

The chances are that if you are one of the many people with an interest in new currencies, new ways of living and a new (or a return to) people-centric world and way of living who has been reading through Levelling Level, my blogs and material I am continuing to create, you will by now appreciate that the collapse that I have been talking about, is already well underway.

I cannot overstate just how challenging it is for many people to understand that systemic collapse doesn’t necessarily mean that absolutely everything stops.

Because it could very well be the case that not everything stops at the same time, many of those same people will still continue to believe that the world around us is continuing as it always had.

This creates two specific dangers for us all:

  1. That these same people will literally stand still, do nothing and allow those whom have created all the problems we have now, to dictate and recreate a system that continues to work only for them, and:
  2. That when things do reach a critical point and we are experiencing social disorder, people will not look to ourselves and to our communities for the answers and the solutions, and instead will continue to listen and go around in circles – back to point 1!

Whilst I have little doubt that the world elites have simply gone too far to turn everything around this time (as they did when they last lost control during the Great Financial Crisis of 2008), it would be foolish to fall back on confidence alone to mitigate the inherent risk, that plans like those being pushed through the WEF narratives will succeed.

Preparation now, is and will be one of the most effective ways to counteract and lesson that risk. But more importantly, it is the best way to help ourselves, then people we care about and everyone within the communities where we live.

There is no doubt, that the success of the Local Market Exchange and the True Economy hinge on building new app-based exchange systems for foods, goods and services, and that these are fully interactive and linked to or with the fully localised or Decentralised Currencies that we need create and correlate them with.

All Local Market Exchanges will need a localised or franchised version of an app that works as follows:

  • Operates within geographical parameters that are definable using existing postal codes or GPRS
  • Allow an item (or group of items) to be swapped directly for a rate of currency to be agreed, OR another item (or group of items) IF the two parties involved in the direct transaction should agree
  • Allows a source of community governance to set the values of basic or essential foods, goods and services, but prohibits any other kind of change.
  • Shows what essentials foods, goods and services are available collectively to the community transparently at all times.
  • Makes any goods that are not essential to community members, (which could be the surplus of otherwise essential foods etc.) available to other Local Market Exchange Franchises – in the order of prioritising immediate neighbours first.
  • Is based on a membership structure that requires sign-in and acceptance of all terms
  • That will either be or can quickly and easily become fully interactive with a new Local Digital Currency that is directly linked to the number of ‘members’ in terms of the structure of its value, with the ability to change or rescind those values on the membership status of each member of that community group
  • That is fully open source.
  • Each ‘franchise’ will be owned by the community that manages it, with a salary to be paid from the local governance body to those administering the system on behalf of it.

Some of you brilliant people will know how to do this now. I realise just how time consuming this could be. However, the contribution that you could be about to make – if you can do this, or contribute to its creation – could be incalculable, in terms of the new world that we have to work together to create.

I will be happy to work with any of you who are developers to write the governance notes and create the process diagrams for the Local Market Exchange system model, so that a formal barter and exchange system that interacts with the creation of a localised Cryptocurrency can be created and be ready for when we need it, so that none of us have only the choice of beginning from the start with no help from others, when things are in a real mess.

It doesn’t matter where in the world you might be. Everything is about to become local in a way that many of us have never seen anything like before. However, it is also vital that we work from those grassroots-up, to ensure cooperation at every level right up to the equivalent of worldwide and international in the way that we understand it right now.

Love is international and has no boundaries. Practical reality always meets us at the front door.

We all have a stake in making sure that each and every community survives and then thrives as we transit through the change from the dark world we are exciting and meet the challenges that we face as we open the door to the new world of balance, fairness and light that lies ahead.

The NHS Test & Trace Service: The only certainty is the loss of freedom

May 29, 2020 1 comment

The much heralded NHS Track and Trace Service apparently came into service on Thursday. But what help to you and I can it really be?

Throughout the Lockdown, the Government and the Police have sought to encourage friends, families and neighbours to dob each other in. The creation of the Track and Trace Service takes that further and fully establishes the UKs new social police service.

We have so far lost 9 weeks of our freedom to the Government’s Coronavirus response. Why should we deliberately undertake an act now that will take away more freedom from us and the people we know, when it is only that loss of freedom that is sure?

The only time that tracking and tracing might have proven to be the bombproof strategy for fighting Coronavirus as the Government would like us to think it will be, was when the first handful of cases were identified present in the UK, right back at the start and before the Lockdown began.

With the Virus now circulating and thought to have become intimate with 1 in 4 of us or more – even if we haven’t shown any symptoms – trying to use either an app or a manual track and trace service cannot and will not serve the legitimate purpose that it is being sold as in any way.

Statements coming from the Government this week include threats to close down entire ‘estates’ and making participation mandatory if we do not volunteer information to support the service. It does not help us trust our leading politicians. Nor does it reenforce our weakening faith in what they are doing in any way.

Should we really be expected to volunteer the details of who we have met and what we were doing when there is no conclusive evidence to say that even if we have been carrying Covid-19 and come into close proximity with another person, we could be the only possible source of infection for them or anyone else who might have crossed our path?  

Will be actually be breaking privacy laws if we communicate any of this information about anyone other than ourselves or those we are responsible for in some way?

The options for abuse in itself are staggering from this two-edged sword approach.

There will be those who would malevolently rise to the occasion of getting someone they don’t like or perhaps a work colleague they are jealous of ‘quarantined’ for a fortnight or maybe even two.

But there are many more on the flip side who will not knowingly wish to take responsibility for condemning other human beings and the many others around them to the prisons of their own homes. And why should they just so a Government that is messing up a national emergency so catastrophically can go live on air at the Daily Briefing each day and announce that they are ‘getting the job done’? 

For whatever reason and whatever the way of thinking it is that underpins the Government strategy on fighting Covid-19, the most consistent part of the whole process has been the wheeling out of Matt Hancock whenever the announcement for some dubious new process or action is made. 

The obvious response and what you are probably thinking is he’s the Health Secretary and as its a health emergency it simply makes sense. But can we really be so sure?

The lack of comedy makes a Hancock’s Half Hour revival unlikely. But one has to wonder if Matt Hancock is being lined up as The Fall Guy when the Government finally accepts the wheels have fallen off the Boris Johnson show.
