Nature protection in Copiosis
Disclaimer: If you do not know the basics of how the new socioeconomic innovation called Copiosis works please watch the 3 minute video below before reading this article.
Why are nations, governments and corporations not protecting our precious nature? Why do volunteer organisations have to stand up and try to stop the destruction of our biosphere?
The answer is obvious. Our current socio economic systems are not designed to protect our nature, species and environment. To capitalism, nature as a factor of production. Not a life-sustaining, life-producing, integrated system.
What if there was a blueprint for a way better system where nature protection would be a priority? A system that at the same time generated tremendous wealth for everyone?
Copiosis was born in 2013 and has been evolving ever since. Actually in Copiosis nature protection is not even needed. The more environmentally friendly a human act is the more the actor is rewarded. In other words, decisions polluting our planet or destroying nature are not rewarded at all in this global socioeconomic innovation. For example overfishing ends completely because there is no virtual currency (Net Benefit Reward - NBR) given for people who fish endangered species.
Today many people have become more conscious consumers. Buyers do not need to question as much as in the past whether their sweater is made with child labour or if their vegetables contain poisons. But even in our modern era, there still is incentive to try making things in ways that compromise nature, human health or both. That’s because the cheaper you can make your thing, and the more you can sell it for, the more money goes from other people’s pockets into your own. Shortcuts that harm the environment are tantalizing because they reduce cost.
Again...Copiosis is inherently designed so producers strive to produce only ethical and environmental products. In fact, all product and service creation becomes ethical and environmentally friendly. One reason is because producers need not worry about cost. It costs nothing to make things. So why not make things the best we can?
There is a term in capitalism called planned obsolescence. Electronics, cars, houses and tools are not built to last these days. It’s better if your car breaks down because mechanics, part makers, and repair shops make money off a car that breaks down. New car makers also take more money from you if you buy a new car frequently. They even have a term for this. In capitalism it’s called the “lifetime value of a customer”.
Consumption runs our society.
In Copiosis durability is highly rewarded. Cell phones would be designed to last.. In fact, it makes more sense for cell phone makers to own your phone. Not you. Instead of buying a phone, you would “hire” one..
If your phone needs repair or upgrade, the cell phone maker would do that work for you at no cost to you. Why? Because as long as you keep using their phone, they are getting NBR.
Cell service would be no cost too. And the dudes providing network service, like the phone maker, would get the virtual reward for keeping that service working great.
A car would easily be designed to last for 100 years. Or at least be made so its parts can be reused for other things. After all, most people wouldn’t want to still be driving their 1980 Toyota in 2100. Especially if in 2100 cars can fly.
But like phones, you would not need to own a car. Rather you might hire a car via your phone, much like you already can in some places today. But if you really want to have a car sitting in your driveway available to you exclusively, you will be able to do that. And, you can have it look however you want. But you ultimately won’t own it. The maker will own it. That’s the best way to keep your car in the best shape. And, you aren’t charged anything for that.
Trash and plastic. Garbage is a massive problem in capitalism. Not in Copiosis. You guessed right! There are all kinds of ways we as a civilization haven’t explored that can help us with our massive waste problem. We haven’t explored them much because it either costs too much to do that, is too inconvenient right now or, as the old capitalist saying puts it: “there’s no money in it.”
In Copiosis, every potential possibility gets explored. Why? Because people follow their passions in Copiosis. That’s how they get rich. And you can bet there are people excited about finding new ways to use trash and plastic. They’re just waiting for the right time and resources to start their exploration.
Let’s face it. Copiosis is a way better blueprint for a global governance model than any of our current models. At this moment the only thing we need to do is to get the word out in order to find more intelligent designers for a future we all want.
