The hyperlink is a copy of http://dematerialism.wikispaces.com/ which has never been edited or commented upon. It begins with formal definitions from dematerialism; continues by presenting the salient features of my idea of a natural economy, a regrettable choice of terms; and ends up by discussing briefly the possibility or impossibility of achieving a society with no resource hierarchies and no possibility of ever establishing one. The basis of my solution is the elimination of resource dominance from human society or some subset of human society either isolated from the rest of society or distributed about within it as a sort of open conspiracy. The epigraph that appears at the top of http://dematerialism.net/ reads as follows:
The prevention of competition for wealth and power is a necessary and sufficient condition for Universal Sustainable Happiness. Any method whatever for achieving this is dematerialism. (This change in the Fundamental Principle was inspired by the possible necessity for one or two hard-and-fast laws to subvert the most maladaptive aspects of human nature*.)
* Footnote to epigraph: On February 4th, 2006, I wrote, “My critics believe that evolutionary psychology provides irrefragable evidence that, regardless of any moral consideration, our propensity to acquire resources in as great excess as possible - which is a hard-wired adaptation that arose during the Pleistocene, our Environment of Evolutionary Adaptedness, due to its usefulness for survival - cannot be suppressed in any manner whatever. I believe that it can be transcended through persuasion, education, indoctrination, diversion, and/or coercion. It would not be important except that the fate of the human race (extinction or not) depends upon who is right”. Formerly, I wrote the Fundamental Principle in terms of voluntary abandonment of the pursuit of wealth, as many people, myself included, abhor the activity in themselves and others; however, initially, at least, there will be a large residuum of people who must be required by law to desist from competition for material wealth. Why should they not be so restrained, as the practice is just as harmful to its victims as murder, which is unlawful in every society; and, the class of victims includes every living thing!
