If the legal structure enforces "social ownership" then a worker must report all his activity to a social body in order to check if any means of production have been used for profit in case it must be "shared" into social ownership.
Ok, i think we can restrain the check to three things: - The resources used/spent and the pollution produced. - That the outcome which are expected by the use of this resources are shared. - That no one is abused by other, that the right of everyone is respected in the process.
People aren't expected to produce anything when they use the resources which are intended to be just house and garden to live . If they produce something with it, good for them, but nobody really care about that ;) (if they doesn’t pollute, and doesn’t use other resources)
It is a worst punishment to the workers, if there is no check of how the means of productions and the resources are used, because then a few could completely waste it, and let about nothing to the others.
The checkers could only have the role to check, no special power. If a checkers report a anomaly, then he report it to the workers, and the workers democratically decide what to do. Then, the workers check the checkers.
This sounds interesting. And I already have some ideas about where I would corrupt this process. For example I could bribe the checker to NOT report an anomaly. Also I could try to bribe the vote counters to corrupt the democratic process (unless your using blockchain technology ;).
To avoid this situation, we could have a lot of different checkers, that check randomly. (then nobody know before the check, who to corrupt) And you can check many time, by different people, important things.
I didn’t assume you can’t repeatedly do it, only that it is a less harmful form of corruption than a false positive (by false positive i mean, telling that somebody is guilty of something when he is not).
Social ownership legally requires any profit in society to be shared. So all human activity needs to be checked in case of profits. Therefore workers have no choice they must join the group as it is built into the law.
Each worker should be their own judge of corruption in the social body. So even if corruption doesn't exist and appears to exist only for a worker, that worker should retain the option to reject joining the body.
By example to take a decision : Everyone could propose something, and vote on something. All the propositions and vote are public, copied in many place.(or transfered by peer-to-peer system). Anyone could anonymously know the vote result, and see if there is a anomaly with its own vote.
This is a great idea. But it's only one component of a social body. More components are required for the whole social body to function. For example to communicate between each other and also implement the decisions of the votes. There might be centralized points in there.
If it is about doing something particular, the vote should specify how people get and lose the role to do it. But roles are more organizational, than about power, they are only about doing a particular thing, and are checked.
That's what I said. Centralized points of power will attract lobbying efforts to use their creativity capacities to find the ways to corrupt them. There is always a way to corrupt a centralized point of power. Can you give an example of a centralized point of power that has no way to be corrupted?
You explained why a centralized point of power is more vulnerable than a decentralized one. But you doesn’t explained why this vulnerability is enough. By example generally you need resources and a reason to corrupt something. (And generally the reason is to get money and private property)
I said lobbying which implies to "get money and private property", or to control the social body, or to control the means of production, or to get revenge, or to help because you think people are stupid, or because of jealousy, or because of racism, or because of sociopathy. The reasons are endless.
They are exactly as corruptible as each other all protocols being equal. Being a "body" makes it social i.e. involves multiple people. The transparency of a body's standards, protocols and actions determines whether it is private or public.
I agree they are exactly as corruptible as each other all protocols being equal. But you explain that if they are public or private, will depend on the protocols. But it imply the protocols between public and private aren’t the same, this is why you lost me on this argument.
The worst form of corruption is when the few people that try to corrupt, succeed to take total control on the means of production, which is basically private ownership. Then private ownership is a lot worst than social ownership.
If its few or many its still cruel.What you think is "worse" depends on your status in the group.If joining a group is voluntary one can avoid corruption by refusing to join a corrupt group. With social ownership to avoid the group you are forced to change residency which is cruel.
Sorry but my "support" above is a bug in the app. I didn't add it and I can't see the button to remove it.
Where "social ownership encompasses the various forms of ownership of the means of production for socialist economic systems. It encompasses public ownership, employee ownership, and citizen ownership of equity."
"What does it mean to socially own something?" I have a complete sub-tree on the definitions. "Social ownership" is right there. Definitions are exactly from Wikipedia descriptions which I figure is a fair source.
"Who is implementing social ownership?" Anyone. The points I raised are problems of protocols ( standards and processes) that are used to implement co-operation required to form any social body. So "the Who" is irrelevant as long as they're protocols are evident for transparent auditing.
