Demonstrating local care
Description: Actualizing equitable distribution patterns and participation at the local level. The effect is to show an individual how one effectively participates in the distribution of goods and services.
Context: An integral part of repatterning distribution of benefits to allow individual participation in local economic planning, and in establishing working standards and in planning the employment of workers' skills.
Implementation: Tactics include: consumer awareness to inform the individual as to the priorities and possibilities for equitable exchange; exchange criteria to demand of local services and industry that they develop a scale of quality and expectations accountability for their production; volunteer engagement to enable and expect social service participation, in one way or another, from each citizen; advisor demand to clarify the need and thereby set the stage for care structures which would respond to inequities experienced by individual institutions or corporations; and civic concern to communicate the pressing distributional needs and the subsequent implied responsibility for a society of civic organizations, clubs, and businesses in order to redirect their social energies. An example is a labourer in a clothing factory becoming involved in neighbourhood guilds to plan for the distribution of local goods including the clothes from his factory.
