How can we infuse money-making practices with the two principles of The Revolution, abundance and expansiveness, to dismantle capitalism? Faction 3 of The Revolution is committed to the redistribution of wealth through a socialist-based conduit corporation (Conduit Corp) working in tandem with a nonprofit that supplies Free Means of Production (FMP Nonprofit) to the public. The FMP Nonprofit provides communities with free means of production to produce goods that are sold through the Conduit Corp, using a Robin Hood model of selling to the rich and redistributing the profits to marginalized communities until everyone’s survival needs are taken care of: free food, clothing, shelter, health care for all on this earth and beyond. Ideally, the Conduit Corp will eventually create a monopoly of sorts, like Amazon, providing all forms of goods and services (even credit unions); HOWEVER, the important distinction is that the sole purpose of this “monopoly” is strictly to redistribute wealth and not for profit. Everyone working for the Conduit Corp and FMP Nonprofit gets paid the same no matter what position they hold. The Conduit Corp can also function as an umbrella corporation for already established small businesses. The businesses under the umbrella of the Conduit Corp are free to function just as any other business functions today while receiving the added benefit of access to the FMP Nonprofit to help produce their goods. The only condition is that a portion of their profits go to the Conduit Corp to help in the redistribution of wealth.
GOAL: The goal of this Assembly is to research past and current models similar to this to help us draw up a comprehensive and detailed plan of how all this will work. Another goal is to come up with branding (e.g., W.A.G.E.) for Faction 3 of The Revolution to then approach existing small business to get them to join in this network.
