Part III. Foundations of a new, libertarian, social order.
- The most suitable instrument.
- Ethical inspiration.
- Structure of Part Three.
Starting from the monetary reform we have suggested in Part
One, the bases of a new social order may be established, qualitatively
different from the present one.
The immediate possibilities suggested in Part
Two, even if they are very interesting contributions, do not change
in depth the main features of our present civilization: they only supply
an instrument for clarity, transparency and information within the prevailing
But we want to go farther on, and to offer a valid, practical and specific
option, to the most urgent problems faced by society, problems which find
no solution in any of the two antisocial models in force: the capitalistic
model (in all its versions) and the communist model (in all its versions
1. The most suitable instrument.
All the present ideologies, especially those prevailing in both worlds
(capitalism and marxism), are completely anchylosed, tied up in the past
The social and technical realities have evolved a lot from the last
century, but these ideologies have not been able to fit into this change,
and now they are outphased: they are unable to give suitable solutions
to the most important and deep problems of our civilization.
We do not want to introduce a new ideology able to find answers for
all the social problems, but we prefer to directly strike at each one of
these problems, one by one, and to find practical and specific solutions.
To make these solutions feasible and useful, we have a privileged instrument:
the pro-telematic cheque-invoice.
In fact, the introduction of the pro-telematic cheque-invoice as the
sole legal monetary instrument, and the accounting centralization of the
telematic monetary network for statistic-analytical purposes, create an
all-documented market and society in the monetary aspect, which we call
(monetary) market and transparent (monetary) society. Clear market
and transparent society mean that:
every particular problem will be objectively and exactly known in its monetary
dimensions, at least;
with this knowledge the more practical and effective solutions can be found,
especially the most suitable monetary solutions;
through a continuous monetary information, the effectivity of the solutions
applied will be controlled;
finally, the responsibilities of any monetary action will always be well
Within the framework of the suggested monetary reform, then, it is possible,
in our opinion, to start to create new social structures, new forms of
social organization to favour and protect the specific liberties of every
individual: that is libertarian structures.
2. Ethical inspiration.
We have spoken about offering specific solutions, forgetting any ideology
whatsoever. Now, the solutions to social problems, even if based on an
objective and exact knowledge of reality, can never be absolutely neutral;
any approach, suggestion or social project always partakes more or less
of ideas, perceptions, intentions... which are not «scientific»,
very intimate, personal, subjective, whether we are talking of individual,
group or class interests... or of ethical ideals in the service of all
Also the specific solutions which we shall introduce in this Part Three
participate in a background of this sort, and we are not trying at all
to conceal this, well on the contrary we want to openly declare which are
the ideals which encourage us, so that nobody be deceived.
Our ideal, the driving thread of our suggestions, is the obtention of
the maximum and best specific liberties for everybody. We do not
speak about Freedom, because, from the ethic-specific ideal it was, it
has become an abstract myth which everybody defends but which nobody tries
to put in practice. We are talking about actual, phenomenal, practical,
possible liberties, in terms of the level of the technical development
For example, if the present technical progress makes it possible to
produce with much less labour, it is necessary for everybody to have the
liberty of working only 20 hours per week; and the same is valid in many
A society protecting all the specific liberties already attained, and
which promotes and encourages the obtention of new specific liberties,
technologically possible, is a libertarian society: all the suggestions
we shall make hereafter are meant for its benefit.
The specific liberties must be attained in all the fields of man's life;
but there are two fields, very important ones, where it is necessary to
create new libertarian structures with priority: political life and utilitarian
a) Politics. Politics is the discipline that every geopolitical
community imposes on itself, on its own behalf. It consists of a double
action: in the first place, the free and responsible rule (or archy)
of a democratically elected monarch; in the second place the obedience,
also free and responsible, from the electors. Both the ruling and obedience
are carried out through an ethical conviction and vital interest.
If politics grows as a spontaneous and expansive development, naturally
beautiful and good, as a communal strategy for all the members of the geopolitical
community, then we have a selfpolitics.
If, on the contrary, politics becomes an arbitrary and imposed development,
an individual strategy, oligopolistic or class-bound on its own behalf
by means of the exploitation of others, then we have an anti-politics.
The anti-politics are all anti-libertarian, because in them the liberty
and responsibility inherent in all politics -both on the side of the ruler
and on the side of those obeying- have become the irresponsible power of
some individuals on others; the power over individuals is the negation
itself of liberty.
Therefore an objective having priority will be the construction of libertarian
self-political structures, bound to attain the total disappearance of any
sort of power over individuals.
b) Utilitarian life. The utilitarian life is dedicated to solve
the material needs of man. In this field the specific liberties are:
as far as the production of utilitarian goods is concerned, liberty of
companies and liberty of their collaborators.
as far as the consumption of utilitarian goods is concerned, assured subsidy
of the essential needs of each individual.
To find specific solutions for the first item is something which can be
attained rather easily by means of an intelligent legislation, which protects
the different possible liberties on the market.
The second case is, of course, a specifically monetary problem: specific
liberties in consumption, means, in the first place, to have the necessary
money for consumption. At present, the technological conditions for production
allow giving this liberty to all the citizens in a geopolitical community.
It is necessary then, also with priority, to find specific mechanisms,
specific structures which will bring the birth of a total solidarity on
a geopolitical level: a solidarity which will not deny the liberties naturally
and vitally egoistical of the utilitarian producers, but which will take
advantage of them to obtain a permanent monetary osmosis among all the
The final objective is to attain the disappearance of all sorts of material
misery and social proscription because of money.
3. Structure of Part Three.
With the intention then of suggesting specific and effective solutions
to the most urgent problems of our days, by means of the establishment
of libertarian social structures, we shall deal with the following matters:
In the first place we shall make some prior considerations and definitions
in order to make understandable all that will follow (chapter
In chapter 11 we shall consider the libertarian
self-politics called to cause the disappearance of all sorts of power on
In chapters 12 and 13
we shall submit the basic instrumental measures of the new libertarian
order: the monetary legislation (chapter 12)
and the imperialization of all the analytic-statistical information obtained
through the telematic monetary network.
In chapter 14 we shall deal with the mechanisms
of social omni-solidarity meant to cause the disappearance of all misery
and social proscription because of money.
The following chapters will be used to study the minimum laws which
shall have to protect the specific liberties in the different social fields:
in the utilitarian-productive society (chaper 15);
in the liberal society (chapter 16); and in
the utilitarian-consumer society (chapter 17).
Finally, in chapter 18 we shall try to show
how all the structures suggested up to now may constitute the favourable
basis for the realization of social ideals and aims of a much larger bearing.
