Community Motive ~ Cooperation Industry Earth 2300  News & Thought 

By Community Motive - Cooperation Industry Earth 2300 | What is “community motive” and how does it relate to Cooperation Industry Earth 2300? Since 2008 it was clear that the profit motive had failed and was regularly failing to live up to the notion that it was what solved all problem. The people who I worked with and saw doing the work of community, important work, were not paid. There must be something like a “community motive”. Searching the internet early in 2011 I found only one citation that used it in the way I’d thought of it: “Acts of conservation without the requisite desire and skills are futile. To create these desires and skills, and the community motive, is the task of education.” — Aldo Leopold "Conservation: In Whole or in Part?” (1944); RMG 319I concluded that community motive had not been adequately recognized, even though it was recorded over 60 years ago and began to promote the term and fit it into my community theses. The "profit motive" that works in the civil markets made possible by self-governed communities, has been made to appear as the first cause of wealth. Yet, in one's life, the most important things one does are not for profit, but for family and community, to ensure their perpetuation. Both work together now, though in the beginning, there was only community motive, since survival and perpetuation depended upon the community.History confirms industrious human communities have survived and advanced through out time, leading to the present world which has enormous challenges, environmental, social and economic. They require more and more, all talents and abilities of humanity to achieve balance and eliminate the waste of war. Cooperation Industry Earth is inclusive of all humans and their activity, therefore it has no classification code. As a singularity, it works worldwide, still recognizing the importance of boundaries for community self-management and the organization of regional/greater communities. Those who cooperate only for the domination of others, using war and conquest, are catalysts for greater peace. To see this requires a Greater Community Spirituality, without domination of any single religious or non-religious group. This then is a paradigm offered to Humanity as a result of years of work, practice, study and inspiration: "Cooperation Industry Earth 2300: Acknowledge boundaries. Work across them. Think local planet, act regionally."
