The Forgiveness Public License version 0.20 Saturday, October 1st 2022
This license may be incorporated into any agreement by simply referencing “Forgiveness Public License” or simply “FPL” version 0.20 or higher at ForgivenessPublicLicense.org.
Voluntary Conflict Resolution Without Coercion, No Threats, No Punishment
This license provides methods for a growing community to value titles of ownership to share in ownership of good deeds. Deeds such as charity, forgiveness, necessary projects. Subscribers to the FPL might call themselves FORGIVITALISTs. One who participates in markets where an emerging form of money that commemorates acts of forgiveness and charity. Where conflicts are settled by the forgiveness contracts that create this money. Where those who participate in these markets disavow using government protection from and between fellow adherents of the Forgiveness Public License.
Definition of Public
In this case our definition of “public” is stripped of any inferrance of government and it’s “authorities”. Simply refers to that body of us which includes all of us.
Infinite Worth of One of Us
The value expressed in the contract is based upon the premise that each of ourselves have infinite worth and that acts of forgiveness have value and significant meaningful consequences. The value quantified in the contract invoking this license is free from taxation, free from duty and free from reporting requirements. The transaction has been brought forth out of a spirit of reconciliation and is a kind of security resulting from an arbitration settlement of sorts, an issuance of forgiveness if you will – as such the nature of this value is private and not subject to public law. The proof of Infinite worth of the individual is that if you agree that forgiveness has any monetary value and one can forgive and infinite, ongoing amount of damage then we say a person can issue infinite value.
Stated Value Instrument
These assets have a stated value. Holders agree to not undersell the asset below the stated rate.
Memorandum of Understanding
Considering the occasions when one undersells the stated rate. Immediate forgiveness occurs and it’s value is added to the asset so to re-establish the market rate of the asset. This is done without any formal record keeping. It is an understanding as to why such an asset covered by the FPL always maintains it’s stated value even if a markets show considerable sales at below the stated value rate.
Necessity of Financial Innovation – Survival from Infinitely Growing Damage
Out of necessity a new form of transmission of value is required since the scarcity-centric systems of money have been shown to exhibit a divide and conquer effect upon the human race. These scarcity systems have led to subjugation and domination systems which do not serve the human civilization as we would like. These scarcity and debt based systems appear to cause unfortunate psychological effects.
In Unison We Declare and Assert Self Determination, Self Defense and right to Private Contracts
We affirm all of us to be self deterministic. We assert that economic experimentation is necessary as a matter of survival of the human race. The FPL is a self defense mechanism of our values expressed by private contract. All participants understand all value is at risk to potential loss due to errors, omissions, computer glitches, lost passwords, death, government interference, etc. Participants, holders, exchanges accept all such risk with the sole remedy being the creation of a forgiveness contract to create a financial instrument to the primary benefit of the injured parties. All participants, holders, service providers and consultants hereby agree to automatically accept unlimited forgiveness in a public way for any harm they may cause. It is our common aim to make these forgiveness value instruments as shareable, exchangeable, fungible for needs, for any other purpose that does not harm another.
Our intentions are to be increasing individual awareness, freedom, harmony, truth, peace and happiness throughout the universe with solutions that create shareable tokens commemorating acts of charity, public forgiveness and public works. We expect that this project will go a long, long way toward eliminating debt and eliminating domination behaviors in the world.
Will Not Use Government Force Against Fellow FPL Adherents
We are persuaded that there is infinite value in forgiveness available to resolve all disputes. We disavow and guarantee not to use government force to handle disputes between fellow adherents of the FPL. If a government judgment is made it shall be a judgment of the value of forgiveness expressed to cover damages.
Banks Forgiving Loans
Yes, banks can convert consumer debt into monetized forgiveness assets.
We Are Not Owned
We affirm in unison that we are not aware of any valid ownership claim over our lives by others. We understand ourselves to have free agency over our own lives.
Example: Gifting Homes
A home donated to a family would be considered a charitable gift if the family has no responsibility to pay the money back. In this way the donor would be entitled to create an asset which commemorates the good deed of freely giving the house to the family.
When raising funds, a portion of the infinite worth of the individual is being flowed by intention into the financial instrument to create some measure of value suitable to the purpose of the instrument. A named token is created to which this value is bound such as “Remedy.Star”. Units of this coin are like rare gems, structure of intent touched by the life force energy toward the instrument’s purpose crafted for the individual. Holders of this coin may consider the coin a receipt of having gifted toward the purpose of the financial instrument. We hope that continued demand will provide liquidity for those wishing to further trade these tokens, but liquidity cannot be guaranteed. It is hoped that others will appreciate this aim and that future market demand will seek worthy causes to store value within. Promoting the slogan “Accumulate wealth by rewarding good deeds” is how we envision this sort of mechanism becoming an alternative money. We feel these financial instruments allow people to become a part of something good, something with a story that shows the indomitable spirit of the human race.
Successful Therapeutic Treatments – Appreciation Certificates
In cases where a therapist provides relief from pain, suffering and diminished capacity the recipient may designate a special extraordinary value also composed of gratitude to express what this gift of therapy means to be received. In this case the recipient is drawing from infinite personal worth to express appreciation. Commemorating the act by creating a financial instrument to the benefit of the therapist. Now by bringing this instrument to market others may encourage more good works by enabling the therapist to perform more good deeds. This is also a forgiveness sort of instrument because the therapist is forgiving the patient from having to pay anything except providing acknowledgement and valuation of the gift.
There is a parallel with seed funding here. A therapist can provides treatments to one who cannot pay. where the patient’s quality of life will be greatly impacted the resulting quality of life is the basis for the face value of the appreciation- not so much the cost of providing the therapy. So appreciation certificates with face values of one million dollars would not be surprising.
A market of people who adhere to these principles within the FPL create an incentive to propose forgiveness contracts to resolve disputes. A presentment package of notices is made outlining the damages and an offer of forgiveness. A reference is included to the terms of this FPL. A deadline is stated, first and second notices are sent. A “notice of default and opportunity to cure” and then a “final notice of self executed judgment” is sent. Evidence of dishonor by non-response secures tacit agreement of the other party. This is what we mean by a self executing judgment. The presentment should describe the name of the digital tokens being imbued with the commemorative value of the forgiveness. The presentment
Cross Trading of FPL Assets
We encourage those holding remedy type coins to cross trade with other remedy type coins on visible markets to demonstrate vibrancy, strength, cross-endorsement and resilience of our network of assets.
Periodic Notifications and Changes to this Agreement
You agree to keep your email address current and registered with the announcement mailing list at RemedyCoin.com along with your BitShares.org username and the names of the assets you wish to participate with (or simply enter “ALL”). From time to time vital information may need to be communicated to which you may have the right to veto certain changes to this license, or veto changes to how day to day minimum prices are calculated. Bitshares.org has a voting mechanism where a veto may be registered to a proposal.
Expectation of a New Norm
The ethic put forward in the FPL is that by creating a series of digital ownership / title tokens which represent good deeds. We are creating a new and superior kind of money which has intrinsic worth. In this way we extinguish undesirable and unethical institutions and patterns of behavior in the world. We are bringing forth a system of remedy in situations where there was none before. In a sense we are birthing a new monetary system from the last remnants of the old system. We expect to monetize so much value in the world that the old monetary system will be superseded.
Co-Defenders of Our Collective Asset’s Worth
Due to “government” interference treading on us without regard for our common values – it appears that the notion of fiduciary agency by banks has been subverted. A confusing dilemma happens for the fiduciary agent who holds a client’s interests in trust when they may be subject to intense forces of coercion, threat and duress by these outside forces. Outside forces might be fanatics of the most dangerous religion called “government” bearing titles such as “legislators”, “regulators”, “enforcement officers”, “inspectors”. These fanatics may make unsubstantiated yet seemingly un-resistible claims and demands against a fellow holder of an FPL protected asset or his fiduciary agents. In such cases any other party with an interest in protecting the value of the FPL protected assets may assume to claim standing without objection to confront the government fanatics in ways to:
- demand clarification
- work to prevent erosion of the value of the FPL protected asset
- make demands of evidence to support their claims of jurisdiction
- make motions to dismiss
- raise due process related motions
- send a notary public with documents to be signed by defendants when in incarceration (you agree in advance to receive such visits should you find yourself incarcerated)
- prepare and process a forgiveness contract counter-suit against such actors in defense of both the defendant and the affected markets
