This page is an echo to the BuildFreedom web site which contains good questions and probably much interesting material but at least one Very Bad Answer:
What is Free World Order ? - Quintessential Questions to Change the World (explaining the phrase "killer application").
My answer is that :
- It seems that contrary to pure freedom principles in the form
usually presented (free market with no regulation), the free
political system I described here, as a kind of structure for self-regulation
of the society, with a good sense of the general interest, is likely to
be competitive on the very domain of political questions, so that it can
be strong in front of the old political structures and quite more popular.
(It is less trivial but once explained it can be very clear to people that it should be a good, efficient and just system). Maybe a majority of the people to whom I told about it and who paid enough attention finally agreed.
- Once started, this system should be already a killer application in itself, as a system to provide a relatively secure information about who is honest (and who is not), and as a tool to find the honest people (if they belong to this network).
- Then, it can open many possiblilities of other applications based
on this information.
Let us see a few of them:
Now, the Internet is dominated by the unfair commercial practices which
are a parasite phenomenon. So many people are fed up with it and would
be very happy to escape from it, like people are happy to come to Linux
to escape Microsoft's unfair commercial practices.
I mean the dominance of advertising banners and the fact that so many Internet activities are managed for profit with no care for honesty.
An advertising banner, put according to a commercial logic (when the author of the site who puts it for money and not for his conviction), is a concrete nuisance for the public who is annoyed to get it
on the screen, and it is no benefit for the economy.
If one follows a commercial banner, necessarily it leads him to a company that is likely
to get profit from him, with a higher price than if if he had the honest information about which company offers the honest and cheap service.
And it is the same problem with portals: a commercial portal will make a higher profit if it accepts money from the unfair commercial companies (who ask for a higher price...) for putting them in good place, but this is unfair because it is a bad information service for the public who is not aware of this, and who does not access the information of what service would be better or cheaper.
So all this what is dominant now is just a war about
So people know this, they are fed up with it and would love to have
the opportunity to get out of it and find usefull and relyable information
about the available services on the market.
Therefore, I think that making a portal based on a security system to ensure the honesty and devotion of the authors to the public interest would be a killer application.
The second problem with virtual markets is that sometimes we cannot
know if the offer is really what it claims to be: if I pay for something,
shall I really receive it ? Does it have the quality it claims to have
? Is it unrelated to any traffic of stolen objects ?
Extending our system to all sellers on such a market is then the solution. The same way to ensure that a given love meeting announce is not related to any procuring network.
- A currency system needs to have a guarantee system to ensure that
nobody with a negative account can simply leave the system without paying
his debt, so that the people with a positive account will be ensured to
have the opportunity to buy services with their account.
More precisely, we cannot base this on any legal enforcement that would punish those who do not sell services to pay back their debt (negative account).
The only solution is to base this on the graph of trusting relations as we presented, but with many variables stating what amont of credit everyone grants to his friend, so that for whatever set of people would decide to stop paying their debt to the rest of the system, we can find other people still in the system with positive account that are accountable for them, and that would automatically be made to pay back all these debts without breaking anyway the logic of the system.
More mathematical details should be develop to ensure the stability of the system, but once it will be done, it should be much more competitive than the present banking system, offering better services at practically no cost.
- Conversely, the fact someone is monetarily accountable for someone
else is a kind of guarantee that this declaration of trust is serious,
so that this information can more easily be trusted by other people, with
the guarantee to obtain a financial compensation from them in the case
it would reveal misleading.
Here are the details of this money theory
To comment in more details about Big Booster and its short-sightedness:
How can one believe such tales just comparable to the idea that everybody
can surely earn his living up to millions just by playing in a casino and
inviting everybody to do the same, whatever game one can invent there ?
Who will take care of agriculture and industries to provide physical living to all these players ?
The "free world order" built this way is but a jungle where everyone
is trying to abuse (exploit the credulity of) everyone else making such
a fuss that the sane-thinking people trying to work for serious production
cannot make a step without being annoyed with such stupid advertisings.
And the claim that "As soon as we discover any major negative about any of these programs, they will be removed from the list. " is just ridiculous because it is mathematically obvious that all these
games will finally collapse as a pure loss for most members.
How can this be presented on equal footing with a serous construction
of freedom, with serious money systems, and serious alternatives to the
present economic and political structures to be profitable to everyone
