The mission of the Equitism.org, Equitist.org, and Equitarian.org websites, as of the Equitist Advocacy group, is to catalyze the detailed, optimal definition, widespread public comprehension, and majoritarian implementation of 'The Equitarian Reform'. By 'The Equitarian Reform', we mean a non-violent, legally-enacted transformation of the prevailing, capital-based social relations that shape human society's self-creation, and that shape human society's continual self-re-creation.
We hold that 'The Equitarian Reform' is a 'revolutionary reform' — a reform which, if implemented, will drive the society of the capital-relation forward, into a qualitatively new, higher, more equitable, more democratic system of social relations.
We, the members of the Equitist Advocacy group, hold that this Reform — this revolutionization of the prevailing human social relations of human society creation — is the only available alternative to the plutocracy-orchestrated global, totalitarian, multi-genocidal degeneration of human civilization now underway.
We hold, further, that 'The Equitarian Reform' will make possible the global regeneration of human civilization: a Global Renaissance — the first planet-wide renaissance of material-biospheric, intellectual, aesthetic, emotional, and spiritual prosperity in the recorded history of the Terran human species.
'The Equitarian Movement' is an already-existing, real movement within the Terran human species for the creation of comprehensive democracy, which means political-economic democracy.
The U.S., the U.K., the rest of the E.U., the rest of western Europe, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and Australia, form the core of the global system of capital. In that core domain of the capital-relation, only the creation of comprehensive democracy can preserve even those tattered remnants of political, representative democracy, civil liberty, and the rule of law, such as still endure, from the multi-genocidal totalitarian tidal-wave with which the global oil-finance plutocracy has moved, and is moving, to drown humanity, globally.
This new tsunamic deluge is designed to include, now, especially, this capitalist core — no longer just that zone of intensified deprecation and depredation of humanity which the plutocracy has created in its marginalized periphery of the core capital-system, its "Third World".
The global oil/finance plutocracy, in its still [of course] publicly-undeclared "War on Humanity" — a global War that is still a well-kept secret from the global public, and which that public is discovering only bit-by-bit, as the many nooses already deployed by the plutocracy tighten around its breathing space — is now moving to create just "One World" of intensified deprecation, depredation, and extermination of all of the humanity that they see as threatening their rule, planet-wide [that plutocracy itself, of course, and their selected servile classes, excepted].
The 'Equitarian' Reform and the 'Equitarian' Revolution
More specifically, the mission of the Equitist Advocacy group is to catalyze the popular re-foundation of global human society upon the principles of 'generalized equity'.
We seek to accomplish this mission by promoting the promulgation of 'Equitarian' constitutional amendments, of their enabling legislation, and of the democratic election of candidates committed to their implementation.
This implementation is designed to create, at length, a transition from the darkening present, to a brighter future.
The 'Equitarian Reform' is designed to drive a social transition out of the increasingly unjust, 'in-equitarian', incipiently totalitarian, multi-genocidal, state-/private-capitalist, monopolist / oligopolist / plutocratic political-economy of the present. The 'Equitarian Reform' is designed to drive a social transition in to an 'Equitarian', comprehensively democratic political-economy, founded upon the constitutional establishment of four new species of social, universal, fundamental, human-rights-based equity.
These four new species of socio-economic equity arise in the supersession of, and as a necessary supplement to, the existing, first, and original species of equity: capital-equity.
That is, that single, presently-elaborated species of equity is, by name, 'internality-equity', the capital-equity stockholder, ownership-rights-based principle of "one share, one vote"; of economic-equity stockholder democracy, however much that principle is, presently, honored mainly "in the breach".
The four additional classes of socio-economic and political equity — proposed to you, by the Equitist Advocacy group — can be briefly characterized as follows:
'Citizen Externality Equity' — is the proposed constitutional requirement that each local operating unit of each enterprise that imposes significant "externalities" or "external costs" upon its local public(s) — e.g., toxic pollution — must incorporate a democratically-elected, locally-elected, publicly-elected, public board of public directors, counterpart to the existing, standard, local "management committee", or "local governing board", appointed by the enterprise's head office private board of directors, with the public board and the private board, thus, having co-authority over the annual 'externalities operating budget' of that local operating unit.
The resulting structure of enterprise board governance would no longer be "uni-cameral"; we would have transformed it into a "bi-cameral" structure.
We members of the "grassroots" voting public, especially those of us local to each such externalities-generating enterprise, may be impacted — possibly fatally — by the externalities output of that enterprise. However, today, under present social relations, we have little recourse. We have little recourse, unless we own the offending capital, or unless we can offord to finance costly-and-uncertain litigation under capital-equity as the dominant form of '''social''' equity.
The second "house", the new, "popular house" of popularly-elected public-directors will give every participating member of the "grassroots", voting public: (1) a voice in setting the annual "budget" of such externalities that each such local operating unit is legally permitted to produce, (2) a voice in setting the rate of taxation for the 'externalities taxes' that each such local operating unit would be legally required to pay for the externalities that it is still permitted to impose upon the public, and upon its environment in general, and (3) a voice in the allocation of the new public revenues so generated, for the remediation of the social damages induced by those externalities still allowed, etc.
'Citizen Birthright Equity' — is the proposed constitutional requirement which establishes that each and every child born into equitable society shall be endowed, by that society, with a lifetime social trust fund, sufficient to support the expected lifetime healthcare, education, home purchase, retirement pension, and other social-baseline life necessities of that new citizen, with that individual's disposition rights over those societal funds defined so as to avert their misuse.
These 'Citizen Birthright' trust funds would be financed by a tax, on the 'Citizen Stewardship Equity' use of social property — e.g., on socially-owned production plant and equipment, ceded by society-as-a-whole, for use by a given, particular stewardship enterprise. This tax would, thus, constitute a '''social rent''' for those stewards' use of social property, designed to generate funds for the maintenance and expansion of societal self-investment, both human and instrumental.
'Citizen Stewardship Equity' — is designed to gradually supplant and supersede the capital-relation, by superseding the wagéd-labor and salaried-labor relationships, the latter, forming the core of the capital-relation. This new species of equity entails the constitutional empowerment of each citizen to participate in the co-formation of, and the democratic, 'one steward, one vote' co-conduct of the production and the democratic self-management of, localized, enterprise-level, associations of producers (i.e., socialized producers' cooperatives) on a 'one citizen, one vote' basis.
This means that each such citizen-producer would be empowered to act as a co-steward of that part of the total social property — in the form of, e.g., production plant and equipment — granted and '''rented''' to that citizen's qualified producer-association, as collective self-employer, by a local, public, social bank, itself also a 'Citizen Stewardship Equity' co-stewardship association, democratically self-managed by its own citizen-producers, as collective self-employees.
This 'Citizen Stewardship Equity' right would include the right of each such citizen co-steward of such social property in-use to an equal share in the net profits of enterprise generated by that cooperative association of producers, as well as to a — perhaps unequal — base-salary in return for the collectively required productive participation in, and contribution to, that association for production, as democratically decided by the assembly of the co-stewards of that cooperative enterprise. Payment of those profit-shares and base-salaries to themselves by those co-stewards, would depend upon their productive contribution, and also upon their collective success in finding fellow-citizen customers for their product/service output, fellow-citizens/customers willing to pay a price sufficient to fund that salary and that profit-sharing, and for whose patronage they would face competition from other socialized stewardship cooperatives.
'Citizen Allocational Equity' — is the constitutional requirement that the proceeds of the social self-investment fund, generated by the '''social rents''' on the value of social property — production plant and equipment — granted by society for use in stewardship by qualified enterprise-level '''associations-of-producers'''/'''socialized producers' cooperatives''', will be allocated to the various geographical localities of the social territory on a per-citizen, per-capita basis. This requirement is designed to ensure that equal populations of citizens receive equal opportunities to contribute to, and, thus, to partake in, the human societal production of human and natural biospheric prosperity. This constitutional requirement might be subject to certain temporary "corrections of the past", designed to undo the adverse social consequences of past inequities of wealth and opportunity allocation.
