It is not a popular ideology. In fact, many are proud to loudly reject it in front of me however the Democratic Economic Cooperative model works and it is better. People often wonder. Why did I pay a writer with no direct return on investment for so many years? She brought in an audience, she was sophisticated in Business, and she and I collaborated on a Business Plan that was very well received by my Community College at Loyalist College. We will always and forever consider Diana Skye a member of the family even as she moves forward with her professional life.
The Democratic Co-Op & Partnership models works people! They work unbelievably well. It is weird to say but New Democrats are not that radical. In fact they are insanely practical, transparent, and diplomatic. You just have to care enough to see it. Some of them are Democratic Conservatives believe it or not. This means they idealize a government with Social and Fiscal responsibility. How Radical and tyrannical for a party that is said to use the Socialist Ideology?!
How the Co-Op model fixed my Animal Crossing game?
I suggested my town would operate under the rules of equal & shared ownership. Also oddly enough I didn’t surveil how the Co-op members operated in my town. What do you know though? It paid off! By using a model of equality, no surveillance, and implied collaboration. We democratically transformed my Animal Crossing town Roadhouse from a bare natural resource economy. To a replenished and healthy large volume producer of fruits.
This was an Economic thought experiment
Much like Monopoly or even in the right Context The Sims….
First of all we toyed with a model of revolutionary Socialism… Which was short-lived. Then we switched to Democratic Co-Op.
Why the Democratic Co-Op did better?
Under the model of the Co-op it allows for the practice of ownership but fair & moral decision making. Should we begin chopping down all of our trees? No because we have dwelling resources and it will jeopardize production. So what do we do? We leverage the share of Production sales with my brother’s Island Paradise. In exchange, we practice a process of Economic Specialization. I have been able to specialize in fruit Production and he extracted natural resources to help us contribute natural resources to the development of our store. So not only did we experiment with a Democratic Co-Op we experimented with Economic Trade agreements.
I wasn’t as much of a philosophical democrat as my brother. Indirectly or directly. Based on this experiment. He sold me on many of his philosophies.
- I created a strategy for renewable resource conservation/development management.
- I maintained a diplomatic relationship with neighbouring islands.
- I created a Communications propaganda center from my Animal Crossing town. It was reduced after the revolutionary phase but remains active in the Co-op phase.
- We are nearing the creation of our first non-tent store.
Right wing Resource Conservation approach – This democratic idea came from my boyfriend who warned of the fatal flaws in unsustainable development. It is a shame this ideology is a Teddy Roosevalt throwback in a way. I think Conservation Conservatism has many merits. Unfortunately if Conservatism isn’t approached Progressively true environmental thought will not be used. Politics requires a shared intelectual values based approach.
Shout out to Capsim. Even this experiment with Animal Crossing, using a sustainable resource simulation economy under Co-op conditions. This was more educationally valuable than my experience using that software with my community college education. That is some kleptocracy they are running with that program.
Self Reference to fight Capism:
All Simulated Economies are games. – You can’t sell me a Business simulator group game and tell me it is educationally legitimate.
Community Colleges should be places of collaborative Business style educations for the interest of innovative Sustainable development. Break the Capsim Mould people! Demand more rewarding thought experiments. We do not have to submit to intellectual rot. Extracurricular education and general education courses in Eco-sustainability and Political science kept me sane in the College for business education. I will admit that. Keep trying out new thoughtful experiments to improve yourself & the world.
