WHAT IS A HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY

One Community’s definition of Highest Good society is the combination of all of the elements we consider foundational to supporting people living for The Highest Good of All. It is a social architecture built on three things: helping each other and others, fulfilled living and emotional sustainability, and making a difference in the world by setting an example. Its purpose is forward global movement of self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities (we’re starting with the Earthbag Village and Duplicable City Center) by specifically catering to the 6-foundational emotional needs with duplicable components that address the foundations of education, social injustice and inequality, crime, economics and poverty, discrimination, emotional health, and happiness.

WHY A HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY

a new way to life, living fulfilled, an enriching life, enriched life, fulfilled life, ascension, evolving consciousness, loving lifeWe think philanthropy and humanitarianism for purely altruistic reasons isn’t working sufficiently. Our approach to addressing this is creating a social model that provides specific benefits most people want while simultaneously and comprehensively addressing the most pressing problems humanity is currently struggling with. By coupling solutions to these problems with what most people will consider a significantly better way of living, we create a model that pinpoints the very roots of our socio-economic challenges while teaching others how to address these challenges too. In this way, Highest Good society provides the global value and  individual value necessary to build the wide-spread mainstream support (including financial involvement) capable of positive and permanent transformation on a global scale.

One Community is open source project launch-blueprinting all elements of the Highest Good society model for individual implementation while demonstrating how combining them together will:

Maintaining the success and function of all of these elements will be made possible through a community contribution model. Specifically, 35 weekly hours for each person is dedicated to everything that keeps One Community functioning and fulfilling our global change methodology and 5 hours for each person is contributed to support hosting social contribution to an architecture of enriching personal growth, recreation, and interaction. Participation in hosting and attending these events is optional and people can instead choose to contribute their 5 “social hosting hours” as regular community contribution if that is their preference.

STRUCTURING SOCIAL CONTRIBUTION

Highest Good society, fulfilled living, enriched life, enriching life, living to live, how to live an enriched life, keeping it all running, sustainable living, social architecture, fulfilled living, thriving, thrivability, emotional sustainability, the good life, a new way to liveBecause Highest Good society is about living and sharing happier, more abundant, and more positively impactful lives through cooperation and collaboration, the element of Highest Good society that is a social architecture of enriching personal growth, recreation, and socialization is structured around participation. For a hosted event to qualify as social contribution, it will be available to the entire community (and the public once we are hosting) with at least 5% of the community (or visitors) expressing interest and committed to participate. If less than 5% of participation for 2 events in any one period of monitoring is achieved, the activity ceases to be an option and is replaced by something different. Events times are organized by the host with the structure of the model requiring participation for continued event existence, keeping both the host and the participants accountable for the maintenance of activities.

Hosted activities that count as social contribution include: classes of any kind, exercise, meditation, spiritual or any other open gathering, reading groups, game groups, music and entertainment of any kind, and anything else open to the participation of the entire community with 5% or more people consistently involved.

Participation in all aspects of the social model is voluntary and ideas for new activities, changes to activities, and the social structure as a whole are discussed and evolved through the consensus process. Activities are posted so everyone knows what is available and sign-in sheets are used to monitor attendance. Changes are made by the host and any activity that has been removed from the schedule due to non-participation can be re-added with a commitment of at least 10% of the community to participate. If a social activity is cancelled due to non-attendance, the host either gathers support and hosts a new activity or uses the available hours to help where it is needed in the community. The same applies if a person chooses not to contribute to hosting classes for the social contribution structure – unused hours are filled with other community contribution aspects of the individual’s choosing.

SUMMARY

Highest Good society is a model for cooperative and collaborative living for The Highest Good of All. It addresses the very roots of our species’ socio-economic challenges while teaching others how to address these challenges too. By coupling solutions to global problems with what most people will consider a significantly better way of living, we create the necessary global value and individual value needed to build the wide-spread mainstream support (including financial involvement) capable of positive and permanent transformation on a global scale.

 

FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS

Q: Is this a religious or spiritual philosophy?

No, it is a non-ideological approach to cooperative and collaborative living. One Community’s spiritual philosophy is also non-denominational and non-ideological. (click here to read about it)

Q: Do you consider this concept of Highest Good society as the best or only way to live?

No, our philosophy for The Highest Good of All is non-ideological and this applies to Highest Good society also. We are offering this structure and its components as an option for those who’d like to increase cooperation and collaboration in their lives in a way that benefits others too. The Highest Good society model is foundational to our organization and our global transformation approach because we believe the specific individual benefits Highest Good society provides will encourage application and implementation into the self-replicating teacher/demonstration community, village, and city model. How others choose to use any and all components of One Community, however, is the choice of those individuals and groups.

Q: I want to join One Community but I don’t agree with some of the outlined concepts of your Highest Good society approach. What does this mean for me? 

We understand that preferred living models and structures will differ greatly between different people and values systems. For this reason, we strive for transparency in all policies and/or procedures that we believe may affect a person’s decision to join One Community so that only people who truly feel One Community is a good fit for them will choose to join us.

Consider joining us as a Satellite Member (click here for the Invitation Form), consultant or partner (click here for the Consultant’s/Partner’s Page), and/or just follow our progress. We expect other communities will follow (we’re open source, you could start one!) with different views on these issues and we will happily be promoting their success also if they are part of the open source and free-sharing network of teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities that we are helping to create. Here are the best ways to follow our progress:

Also, the point of One Community is to build living blueprints open source so everyone can then use them for duplication. If you feel like you’d like to see a different version of One Community, we invite you to embrace the task of working with us and using everything we’ve already created to form another iteration of this idea, with a new set of rules, and attract to this idea the people who share your values and thus like your rule sets. In so doing, providing another for The Highest Good of All option with potentially a totally different approach.

Q: Does the “5% of the community (or visitors)” mean social architecture minimum participation needs will fluctuate with the number of visitors?

No, the 5% is based on the number of permanent residents only. If visitor participation plus One Community member combined equals 5% of the permanent population, then the activity will count as social contribution.

Q: What sets One Community apart from similar projects?

One Community's open source project-launch blueprinting strategy and the fact that we are open sourcing and addressing ALL elements of society simultaneously are a combination unique to our organization. Together, these will help others duplicate what we do and create self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities capable of positively impacting every single person on this planet within one generation.

Q: What sets One Community's open source goals apart from similar projects?

To our knowledge, no other project exists that is providing the comprehensive nature and detail of everything we are open source project-launch blueprinting.

Q: What is the specific One Community short-term goal?

  1. To become a world leader in global-solution information content within 6 months of moving onto the property as detailed in our open source project-launch blueprinting page.
  2. To expand within 5 years to a community of 200 full-time residents producing ongoing tools, resources, and tutorials while hosting thousands of annual visitors as outlined in our long-term vision page.
  3. To define the global-solution industry itself as an open source industry, expanding mainstream awareness, appeal, and desire for comprehensive sustainability by demonstrating and sharing a more attractive and fulfilling way of living that people can have if they desire to create it also.
  4. To teach as many people as possible to duplicate and/or evolve our global transformation model.

Q: What is the ultimate One Community long-term goal?

To transform our world into a sustainable and happier one through teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built all over the world. We will work with these hubs as our open source partners and fellow leaders of the open source, Highest Good of All, and sustainable planet movement leading to a New Golden Age of cooperation, collaboration, innovation, creativity, sustainable living, and increased happiness for the entire human organism.

Q: How is One Community funded?

We are still seeking funding. Please see our Funding Related Details Page.

Q: Where will One Community be located and why?

Click HERE for property details that include why we have chosen the location we have.

Q: How far is One Community in the creation process?

Visit our progress page for a regularly updated list of our accomplishments and progress. Visit our blog for our on-going mini-updates and weekly summaries of accomplishments and progress.

Q: Why not just build a small-scale prototype home or community that includes a minimum-scale revenue-generating demonstration/operation? Wouldn't this get things going faster?

This already exists as Airbnb and people are doing amazing with it, so small-scale operations are not what we see as missing. What we see as missing is a complete model for self-sufficiency that is open source and reasonably replicable. Even complete models for self-sufficiency already exist in the form of the many eco-villages out there, what none of those offer though is any sort of understanding and/or path for how average people with average means can replicate them. We also think there isn’t enough of a compelling reason for most people to bother with changing how they live now to engage such a path/project, so our project is purposed to provide and demonstrate that too.

From a total global-change perspective though, we think it is even more important to create a permanent place dedicated to open source and capable of providing for the complete needs of hundreds of people working on open source creations full-time, with enough revenue generation and space for expansion to grow to over a 1000+ full-time volunteers while also being able to support the establishment of other open source teacher/demonstration/R&D hubs around the world. This is why the intended propertyvillage models, and social architecture and economic focuses are all big.

To support faster and broader implementation while working on these big goals, we are also taking the extra time necessary to develop everything so it is modular and also implementable as individual components. This will allow for anyone who doesn’t desire the full teacher/demonstration hub approach to have options too, but our primary goal is to demonstrate the complete teacher/demonstration hub as easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough for average people with average means to want to replicate it and/or use what we provide to build their own version.

Q: If you are giving everything away through open source, how do you intend to make money?

Our model is designed to prosper specifically because we are giving everything away through open source project-launch blueprinting. We accomplish this through eco-tourism marketed with the open source infrastructure we have already created and other supported revenue streams outlined on our revenue streams page. All of this further promotes our model of spreading sustainability and actively promoting and distributing even more open source blueprints for duplication by as many people as possible.

Q: How will this help people in Third World countries and other areas where resources are needed most?

Using the four-phase strategy above, we wish to demonstrate building a teacher/demonstration community, village, and/or city as profitable for large investors and/or a way for small groups of people to pool what resources they have and get out of debt. We see this spreading and bringing resources to the areas that need them most because building these villages in these areas will be more affordable and easier to do with less building restrictions.

Q: How do you stop the model from being totally capitalized without the positive intent of the original model? 

We are not focused on putting limitations on the use of everything we are creating because of our open source commitment. We will, however, directly support any organization contributing specifically to open source project-launch blueprinting and operating for The Highest Good of All.

Q: Where would I find a more detailed description of how this works?
