The Free World Charter

Have you noticed that the environment is under great stress? That billions of people are hungry and thirsty? That species are going extinct at an accelerated rate? What would happen if we guaranteed everyone on the planet today would have their basic needs met? If no matter where you are in life, you would be free to live without threat of hunger, or thirst, or lack of shelter, and you could spend your valuable time perusing education or better health, rather than just survival money?

The Free World Charter is a document that proposes an advanced alternative society that uses no money, is free, fair, and sustainable. It is based on common sense, science and survival, and is neither political nor religious.

A voluntary initiative, the Charter defines ten founding principles of an alternative society that uses no money or trade, has no exclusive ownership, and is fairer, sustainable and more technically advanced as a result.

It is not a blueprint or design for such a society, but rather the framework on which such a society can exist and evolve. It is important, we feel, to copperfasten the fundamentals of any such radically different society before we can ensure its success - consider it designing a just world from the bottom up, rather than the top down.

In case you haven't noticed, the World has become a hostile place. We have inadvertently made it that way ourselves. The time has come to make some adjustments. The Free World Charter is, we believe, the first crucial step we must now take in order to protect and preserve ourselves and our planet

The Free World Charter sets out the basic parameters for how we can run a successful, modern society without money or trade. It is based largely on the ideology of industrial designer and futurist Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project who have spent many years designing and planning what they call a "Resource-Based Economy" to replace the dysfunctional monetary system we see today.
