What is Decentralism
Decentralism is a new concept for the post-capitalism era, a new socio-economic system. We believe that capitalism has some flaws and with a few changes, we can update it into decentralism, a better system for future social conditions.
Decentralism - the book
Decentralism as a concept is detailed by Decentria's founder in his book, Decentralism, The Whitepaper of a New Economic and Social System. You can read it and get involved in debates on different topics here: Decentria's Forum. An e-book will also be available on Amazon soon.
Let's see some key new concepts from decentralism:
- - most businesses become decentralized similar to models like steward-ownership and benefit corporations;
- - open financialization so that everyone can access the benefits of monetary mass expansion/contraction;
- - quality consumerism is incentivized and rewarded;
- - good environmental behavior is encouraged;
- - free jobs market and business efficiency;
- - conditioned UBI system;
- - new health care systems are being explored;
- - and much more.
Is this communism 2.0 ?!?
Decentralism is in no way close to the communist system, but more likely to the capitalist one, with a few layers on top to fix it: transparency, fairness, accessibility, and scalability.
Here is a comparison between Communism-Socialism and Capitalism-Decentralism:
As you can see, Decentralism falls more on the right side while embedding the social aspects of a healthy society.
Is this system really decentralized?
Any system has some form of hierarchy and Decentralism is no exception. But due to the transparency and initial goodwill of the founders, we aim to decentralize the system more and more each year until it will become a true DAO. This term is used freely lately but we are at the beginning of DAO's evolution and we can only promise that we'll research and implement the best options into this system.
Our objective is to create an autonomous self-organized system in the first 3-5 years. This will include Decentria Foundation and all formed Institutions for governance or other fields.
What about corruption?
We are prepared for this danger and we'll select very carefully the first decision-making people in the network.
Later, due to tracking mechanisms, different metrics, and voting, we will be able to find better and better leaders.
But be assured that we are well aware of this risk and we won't let this be our Achilles' heel.
Decentralism is more than an economical system. Its ramifications are going deeper on many levels. In our simulations, the world could be totally different in a few decades of decentralism.
If we think that a few machines overseen by a dozen people can produce the food for a city, robots could make goods and even houses, it is not hard to imagine that the world, jobs, and people's interests will be different in 50 years from now.
With Decentria we try to reach that point in an elegant way, with a healthy society and not with 1% ultra-rich and the rest as slaves at the bottom of social classes.
We also believe that with decentralism communities will become more resilient, social unrest will go away and society as a whole will be on the right path.
