6– Greater Progress through Cooperation

CORE VALUES FOR COMMUNITY WELL-BEING

  • We believe that we must organize our own small economic structure to support each member of that organization to do better in the open marketplace.
  • We believe that community economic structure greatly impacts the well-being of a community and those who live there.
  • We look for leaders who resonate with the well-being vision and who are fully committed to the principles of well-being for all, not just a few.
  • We believe in cooperation, not competition
  • We believe in the co-op business structure that is solely worker owned, rather than in corporations that retain all the profits for themselves and their shareholders
  • We renounce taking control of another human being
  • No hierarchies. No votes.
  • Autonomy and authority belong to the project, and its agreed upon objectives dictate policy
  • We believe serving must be voluntary and without obligation or force. Each commitment and agreement must be made freely and fulfilled joyfully.
  • We believe that Contribution Agreements must be easily broken, with easy exit strategies built in.
