We Humans have certain adaptations, abilities, instincts, and behaviors that provide us with natural advantages in our environment. Among these are the abilities to communicate, cooperate, use tools and instincts to live and live well - let us call these faculties our Natural Rights, human rights, genetic rights or simply our rights. Important traits that we have include our opposable thumbs, vocal cords and large brains. These endowments were inherited from our parents and ultimately from God or as a phenomenon of the natural universe.
These natural rights are inalienable and cannot be separated from us. Even if we should have our tongues cut from our mouths -by force - we will still possess the just-claim to communicate because the genes to communicate are sequenced in every DNA chain in every single cell in our bodies. Therefor our rights came before there were governments, constitutions or laws and our rights are a direct result of God, our biology and or millions of years of evolution. We the Homo sapiens have obtained all our rights simply by being born human.
We are all equal in our claim to our own natural rights. Every member of our species, short or tall, smart or simpleminded, has a just-claim to seek out the best for them, and use their parent-given genetic rights to try to achieve their goals and pursue happiness independently. Within the human population there is much genetic diversity. Diversity is inequality. Males and Females have different chromosomes and each person will have unique genetics based on their unique ancestry. With few exceptions the pursuit of happiness and our rights are not related to our race, gender, sexuality or religion. Because of our diversity, Humans may not succeed equality - but all people have the right to pursue happiness in an environment where institution do not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color or ethnicity.
There is a natural state of preferable human behavior in which people voluntarily organize around monetary systems. By communicating with each other with prices, calculating value using our math skills and comparing costs of past purchases, the entire society emerges. But there is also a state of war in which people attempt through the use of force to take what is not rightfully theirs. The history of mankind is a history of war, death and carnage. History has shown that when humans control other humans, those people being controlled do not live long. Humans will often deny each other's rights in order to further their own welfare or force their beliefs of how humans should behave upon others. Humans often suppress the rights of other humans in order to achieve their own selfish goals. Even when humans have good intentions they may inadvertently take the rights of others thinking that it is righteous, fair, equitable or scientific.
However, freedom provides the possibility of failure and freedom is necessary for human happiness and the long term evolution of our species. That is why it is ethical and good to make certain that no other humans are given control of our lives - and that we may be independent and live on our own terms, free to fail and always in control of ourselves.
We the humans have the right to institute governments to protect us from the human tendency to dominate, enslave, coerce, cannibalize, socialize, and even murder other humans. Humans will dissolve governments that do not protect rights, liberty and individual sovereignty as well as those governments that seek to tax, control and in-dept the people they claim to own. The only purpose of governments is to allow people to live and reproduce by using their natural right, faculties, instincts talents as they wish and to protect them from theft and violence from others.
Premise 1: We are born with adaptations such as vocal cords, thumbs, brains and instincts that taken together are uniquely human.
Premise 2: Nature selects for traits that give advantages to a species and these traits are passed to offspring.
Inference 1: The use of vocal cords, thumbs, brains and instincts gives humans a natural advantage
Let’s call the things that give humans natural advantages Natural Rights, Human Rights or simply Rights.
These rights include Core Rights that we share with many other life forms including:
1. The Right to the Preservation of Life
a. Like all life forms, we have evolved with a strong drive to avoid death, do those things that prolong our lives and to live well.
2. The Right to Seek Happiness and Pleasure
a. We have a right to strive for those things that make us happy and give us pleasure. We require freedom to act in ways that bring us well-being and therefor we need freedom and independence to be happy.
3. The Right to Self Ownership, Independence and Liberty.
a. We have a just claim to self-ownership with all its associated privileges and responsibilities of Independent peoples. Labor, consumption, marriage, sexuality, offspring, medical treatment, death and drug use are some of the areas in which you have the right to decide your own actions and must live with the consequences. Slavery, serfdom and forced debt repayment are absolutely inhumane.
4. The Right to Achieve Property, Money and Capital
a. Humans are territorial animals and will establish and defend territories even to death. Property ownership is part of being human and includes ownership of land, tools and assets such as money.
Other rights stemming from our vocal cords, opposable thumbs and large brains include:
5. The Right To Communicate
a. Humans are communicators and must communicate for survival. We have a right to communicate and employ communication technologies. It is unethical for anyone to infringe on our right to communicate and this includes surveillance.
6. The Right To Use Tools
a. Humans are tool-users and will go extinct without tools. Our economy is tool-based and we have the right to use tools and be innovative in tool creation. Tools include medicine, money and weapons for self-defense.
7. The Right to Cooperate
a. Humans cooperate and work with each other to further their survivability beyond what they could achieve alone. People should only be forced to not infringe on the rights of others.
8. The Right to Hold Beliefs and to Advocate Beliefs
a. Humans form belief-systems (including religions) that create the strategies that we will employ to further our survivability and happiness. Freedom of choosing belief-systems and religions cannot be ethically denied by any entities.
b. The state shall not impose religions. The State shall not take on any roles of a church and church and state shall be strictly separate.
9. The Right to Collectively Defend Rights
a. Humans are social animals who live in hierarchical societies (Nations) with leaders and followers. There will be government but the only ethical purpose of government must be to protect liberty and justice for all people.
b. Governments are to serve people in general and not specific people or Gods. Government should not pass laws that only apply to certain people.
c. Humans have a just claim to dissolve their governments and to organize private militias.
d. Humans have and will continue to do some very bad things including genocide, slavery and war. To reduce this, governments should have limited control over people and instead protect liberty.
b. Humans are the only animal that use money and trade it for goods and services. Individuals have the right to choose what they will consider money and the value that they will place it in. People shall not be forced to accept a money.
c. We have the right to become rich, wealthy and own many things or at least try to.
d. Like separation of church and state, there must be a separation of economy and state. The State shall not pass laws that grant monopolistic powers, place advantages to certain businesses or preferential treatment to any group. Governments should not be involved in people's businesses. Governments may certify but not licence the work of the people.
10. The Right to Bare Children
a. We have the right to voluntarily mate and pass our genetics to our young. We have a just claim to control our own DNA.
11. The Trivial Rights
a. Humans have many more rights that are too numerous to list but should still be recognized as rights. Like the right to cook food, wear funky pants and eat peanut butter.
The purpose of the CloudCoin Consortium is to provide a “perfect” currency that cannot be counterfeited, double-spent, mined or lost; eCurrency that is 100% private, requires no public ledgers, accounts, or even encryption; a monetary system that is absolutely fair and ethical and requires no special software or downloads.The if the supply needs to grow to provide a more usable unit of account, that the amount will do so proportionally so that all people's money will multiply at the same rate.
We write opensource software for the management of CloudCoins and take steps to reduce theft.
We create the protocols to eliminate theft and loss. We provide links to those use CloudCoins to buy and sell.
To promote a Libertarian society where all people can enjoy freedom and work together voluntarily without the initialization of force.
We keep the RAIDA so that the currency will persist and that data is never added to the raida, the serial numbers never grow beyond 16,777,216 or use negative numbers. The Authenticity Numbers and month last spent will be updated but never by any other method except the programmed scripts that follow the protocol standards.
