“…You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete…”
― Richard Buckminster Fuller
Agrarian = those who seek security and social stability from their relationship to environment and community
Agroecology = the close meshing of social humanity with functional ecology, hydrology, and geology
Wildness = reconnected to instinct, natural reality, and the free living adventure of life
Indigenization = deeply evolving socio-cultural connection to locale and integrated ecological niche within the ecosystem
Social Gravity = what happens when we relax controls and let things move in a natural flow
Paradigm = the environment and its bent to shift society in one direction or another
The business of meaningful Progress…
Paradigm affects social gravity and the social gravity dictates the net effect on everything. Therefore, in the case of global dominance of paradigm, it actually drives the average achievement of human society toward planet, including humanity, creatures and all the factors of geo-socio-ecological reality. It dictates the net achievement while we publicly celebrate the gross achievement.
Importantly, the most ambitious ventures that succeed drive either the extension of the current paradigm or they drive an evolution into a more holistically advantageous paradigm. Anti-factors can worsen the current paradigm or drive an evolution into a different but non-advantageous change. Therefore the entrepreneurial challenge is to reverse engineer the destination of progress which will not simply be new, but a palette of old new and yet to be discovered. The challenge is to create viable business structure and vision at this time and to build to adaptively bridge successfully into the eye of the evolving change into a more holistically earth-centric advantageous paradigm to come. It is to perpetuate that evolution by every degree of success… to design venture capital business as a powerful driver into the new paradigm that will buoy the success of the most important engines of abundance, sustainability, and social cohesion.
As a farmer and peasant with big vision and clarity, I have chosen entrepreneurial venture with my entire soul. I have chosen to use the system I mistrust to create a system we all can trust. I have chosen a unique target clientele in the least successful peoples—in modern terms—of the world, the agrarians. I have clarified a meaningful definition of agrarian that is not linked to farming, rural dwellers, or tractors, but rather to the desire to obtain security from the tender care of the environment and local community. The contrast is with those who advocate or those who seek security in financial economy. My clientele are underserved and lacking in cohesive or organized infrastructure. They are simple wall-flowers forgotten by the profit machines of our time. And though they are marked by adventurism, innovative capacity, and brave spirit, they are as David in front of Goliath in their pursuit to build a world integrating humanity into semblance with the timeless cycles of earth and ecosystem.
I have drawn a theoretical engine to accelerate and amplify the efforts and work of agrarians toward success and toward prosperity and abundance. I have suggested the creation of a metric to measure success in the form of increasing prosperity and ease of abundance. The Benefit-corporation venture has a double bottom line: increase the ease of abundance for our clientele as the first metric and maintain business growth and/or profitability with adaptability as the second metric.
