Setting up the Holon server is a major step you can take to bring different viewpoints to ultimately the Zero Theft Movement. While the setup process might get a bit technical, we have broken it down into easy-to-follow steps so anyone who wishes to launch a Holon can.
WHAT IS A HOLON?
Holon originates from the Greek word holos (“whole”), and is defined as something that simultaneously functions as a part of the whole as well as the whole itself. We use the term to refer to the interpretive groups or communities on our voting platform that, all together, constitute the Zero Theft Movement. You can look through our Holons, created and run by fellow users, and join the one that best represents your views on the rigged economy. To vote and author proposals, every user must be a member of a Holon.
Hosting Server Options
To create a Holon, you need to sign up with a hosting server. Many great options exist, but we have gone ahead and provided some below.
Essentially, whatever service you choose, you need to specifically look for Linux hosting. You will be creating an Ubuntu server, so make sure you have it and Nginx downloaded before you start this process.
While we recommend DigitalOcean to all users (Holon installation guide for DigitalOcean), we encourage you to use whatever service fits your needs best. If you’re an Amazon Web Services user, feel free to follow this guide. We also have a dedicated guide for those of you who use Google Cloud Platform. Alternatively, you can peruse many other options below.

The Zero Theft Movement does not have any interest in partisan politics/competition or attacking/defending one side. We seek to eradicate theft from the U.S economy. In other words, how the wealthy and powerful rig the system to steal money from us, the everyday citizen. We need to collectively fight against crony capitalism in order for us to all profit from an ethical economy.
Terms like ‘steal,’ ‘theft,’ and ‘crime’ will frequently appear throughout the book. Zero Theft will NOT adhere strictly to the legal definitions of these terms (since congress sells out). We have broadly and openly defined terms like ‘steal’ and ‘theft’ to refer to the rigged economy and other debated unethical acts that can cause citizens to lose out on money they deserve to keep.
