Is the state one of the players of the trade or the regulator of the trade? If the state is one of the players then it is a big monopolist. Almost everyone agrees that monopoly is bad. Why then does state play commercial service provider when registering and "servicing" businesses and NGOs? The states follow the model of a commercial business when doing this. It is a nonsense, as the state is not a commercial business (at least inside its internal trade). It just "plays" the role of a commercial business not being it in reality. Registration of businesses and NGOs should be free, not a "commercial service" of the state! For more arguments read more of this blog and our site.
Why did everything was taken over by large corporations? Why 1% of the population owns 82% of world wealth? The answer is simple: Mostly corporations either only grow and become big monopolists or only decrease and disappear. The result is simple: only large corporations remain. Where is the way out? Small, microscopic corporations must arise. They must grow and confront those corporations that are big now. One of the main and most simple and effective measures for this is to reset to zero the fee for registration of a corporation. Join our struggle for freedom of small businesses and NGOs.
I propose to limit maximum length of user agreements ("terms of conditions"). It is too boring and time consuming to read them. It will be no problem for the service providers if we create a centralized repository of "building blocks" to build legal agreements from standard blocks describing a more or less wide class of situations, so that the lawyers could just provide hyperlinks to them. These building blocks could also be commented (non officially and officially), and to them may be created particular precedents in courts applying to many agreements at once (so reducing the load of courts). This was successfully done in software world to split software into independent reusable components. The same must be done in legal world. I also propose to obligatory make legal document section headers obligatory to allow the reader to skip reading the irrelevant sections by skimming their titles. Join our fight against economical barriers.
Don't care about small businesses and the poor? Think of taxes for the state. If a small business needs to pay a non-zero fee for registration at the very beginning of development (when it may critically lack money), this is another argument for it to work illegally. And if you started working illegally, then later even if you want it is difficult to pay taxes. Fight for the abolition of fees.
We are struggling to set to zero the fees for various types of registration (registration of NGOs, businesses, etc.) Why were these fees introduced at all? I think that the main reason is that it’s not even necessary to pay for the work of officials. The main reason is the concept of class society. Society is divided into classes and the transition from one class to another is a "taboo". People subconsciously want to hinder the transition. This comes from the feudal classes. I even think that you are to some extent influenced by Marxism (even if you are a liberal). People are accustomed to this and do not understand that you can live differently. Join our struggle with class struggle.
Another reason to reduce registration and reporting costs for business is to improve reporting. Business will report better if it costs less for it. You state officials want to get better statistics to know something about how to develop economy. Stop to prevent the business to do it for you. Reduce reporting costs.
Business registration fees should be set to zero. It is a moral debt
of the state toward small businesses to provide them freedom and not
cause to him pay higher (relatively) fees than big business.
Otherwise, it may be better an anarchic revolution: The society grabs
money from small business and does not return it. Better no state and
complete switch to BitCoin that such a state. I even think the issue
of setting these fees to zero is critical for the state, if our
policies won’t be followed that is morality toward small business
ignored, it can be completely destroyed (by lack of enough economical
grow of small business) and dominated by BitCoin instead of the
state, bearing in mind all deficiencies of anarchy on the Earth. For
nonprofit registration the problem is even more explicit: The current
system requires anyone wanting to do good for the society to pay for
this from his own pocket as it were his own commerce! It is a need of
society to pay for this. Set registration fees to zero!
We need to decide the structure of governance and membership of our political nonprofit. Currently we are going to create a small board of partisans with me being the CEO. I want our organization to be governed democratically, but I tend to prefer if new board members will be assigned (and resigned) by existing board members to be sure that we don't lose our ideology. However we should also consider open membership scheme where the board would be voted by members who are accepted after a little ideological checking (the full list of questions a prospective member must answer?) This scheme is probably less stable against fluctuations of ideology. We don't want to be transformed into a regular left or right party. Concerning membership: What exactly should be the criterion of accepting new members? Should we require a membership fee? If yes, how much exactly it should be? Should the fee be fixed or at the member's choice? What is the criterion (if any) and the procedure for excluding members? Should we require every member to like our pages at Facebook? Should membership be based on a closed (or maybe open?) Facebook group specifically for members? Please discuss.
