Our Values

Optimisation rather than Maximisation

Maximisation is what has brought us to the current ecological imbalance. Nature does not maximise but She optimises. She seeks to attain a good enough level of everything, knowing that optimisation leads to abundance through symbiotic interactions, while maximisation of a single variable leads to future scarcity as a result of the law of diminishing results and the neglect of the other variables.


Collaboration over Competition

Without collaboration it is not possible to attain the symbiotic interactions needed to optimise and bring abundance.


Accountability instead of Limited Liability

We consider that everyone shall be accountable for what they do and decide. Accountability does not mean punishing people for their actions. It means organising society in a way that compels everyone to exert such responsibility.


Transparency by contrast to Opacity

Without transparency, it is not possible to compel everyone to exert their responsibility.


Personal Sovereignty as opposite to Surrendered Sovereignty

Personal sovereignty is needed to set limits to transparency. Transparency should not collide with Self-Sovereign Identity, which is our ability to administer and make claims about our own identity.
