The Bank’s vision is to play a pioneering role in the development of new ideas and outlook into affairs worldwide to gain a better understanding of how we can all contribute to increased freedom and prosperity whilst also considering the existing and potential issues which may operate to prevent such progress.
The Bank will operate as a repository for progressive knowledge, “savings”, and will use these “assets” to make “investments” in the further development and research of beneficial ideas relating to our intentions as set out in our vision. We welcome valuable and worthwhile “investments” in the bank from contributors around the world who can expect to obtain enormous returns on their original deposits over time. Whilst the current global outlook presents daunting challenges for investors our management is confident that, with a strong track record of successful analysis of the global “markets”, the Bank’s equity will increase exponentially to the benefit of the entire planet.
How is the Bank’s equity measured? Extremes help to create a theoretical basis from which to quantify. Total freedom in an individual is the ability to inflict the greatest devastation imaginable with complete impunity for an unspecified period of time. Total servitude is when the aforementioned condition exists and the individual is not the one in possession of total freedom. The condition of humanity at any given moment is a manifestation of a point between these two theoretical extremes. This can be quantified by every individual on the planet on a continuum between 1 to -1 (1 being total freedom, -1 being total subservience) and an average derived. The concentration of power in the hands of a single individual would result in an average very close to -1 (only prevented from actually reaching -1 by the existence of the free individual him/herself). The Bank’s objective, therefore, is to get as close to 1 and as far away from -1 as possible. The closer to 1 the harder the object becomes to measure. The closer to -1 the easier the object becomes to measure because any subjective assessments of freedoms made by individuals are irrelevant as they become subject to the concentrated power of a single individual.
The use of such a measurement metric is experimental and it’s usefulness over time remains to be seen. However, it has the potential to inject a degree of objectivity and overview that is so often lacking from such investigations.
