Crony capitalists and corrupt government officials will attempt to squash the Zero Theft Movement. But we’ve come prepared.
Your proposals and votes serve as our evidence proving rigged economy theft. For the movement to succeed, they must remain secure, uncensored, untouched, and public at all times. That’s why we are building a technological platform advanced enough to protect all our voices from any form of suppression and provide YOU with the power to eradicate the rigged layer of the economy.
It’s important to note: we didn’t choose this technology because it was exciting, challenging, or interesting. We chose this telechnology because it is safe, secure, and extremely difficult to suppress. Complex problems like the rigged layer of the economy often take a sophisticated and comprehensive solution. Our technology is vital in preserving the legitimacy of our movement and achieving our goals.
Let’s tour you through how we are utilizing technology to construct a secure and powerful platform.
DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization)
Traditional organizations, unlike DAOs, involve a stratified and bureaucratic structure where all employees are bound by contracts. Employee contracts follow the underlying laws of the country in which the organization operates. Nevertheless, the enforcement of those rules and regulation, while perhaps included in every contract, doesn’t necessarily occur on all levels of the organization. Especially when its leaders are not subjected to strict oversight.
In order to eliminate transparency issues and power imbalances, the Zero Theft Movement will operate as a DAO for information, not currency or investment. In simpler terms, our platform will not have centralized governance, and will promote open source and open data. No one—including the founders of Zero Theft Movement—has the power to manipulate or erase proposals or votes on our platform, ensuring our valuable information remains secure even from insiders.
- No authority or central governance.
- A flat structure, preventing power imbalances.
- Extremely difficult, if not impossible, to suppress information.
In the interest of democratizing our movement, we encourage citizens to form and join ‘interpretive groups’ or ‘Holons’. These communities serve as lenses through which one can interpret rigged economy theft.
If anyone in the Holon has valid reasons to believe a member is casting false votes, for example, the group can block these attempts to distort the truth. Our community must band together to thwart those who attempt to corrupt Zero Theft “from the inside.” Of course, all decisions, including ones made by individuals and Holons, are completely transparent and subject to review.
- Holon members specify their shared views
- Suspect submissions or votes (e.g. potential conflict of interest) can be publicly removed to preserve accuracy and fairness.
- The original content is never lost and can always be compared to any view.
- All adjustments remain subject to the review of all citizens.
“Blockchain is an open, distributed ledger that can record transactions between two parties efficiently and in a verifiable and permanent way.”
We deploy blockchain voting to create a permanent, verifiable record of voters, proposals, and votes that is public at all times. Each block (piece of data) is linked, recording the data of the preceding and succeeding blocks. Thus, if a major corporation tries to change the votes on a report exposing them, the blockchain can detect and invalidate the alterations. In the case a block gets corrupted, the data network allows for recovery.
- Blockchain ensures our records cannot be tampered with or erased.
- Any attempt to destroy or corrupt content can be detected and corrected.
Ethereum Smart Contracts
Blockchain provides decentralized storage but requires a small transaction fee to make submissions. We have decided to use Ethereum Classic (ETC) as our platform’s currency because it was specifically built to support smart contracts and is cost-effective. Smart contracts are fully integrated in blockchain, making every single transaction transparent, public, and permanently recorded.
Contributions can be small and for your own exclusive use, or you can fund others’ proposals and votes. It’s important to realize that this measure is not intended to bar access, rather it allows the platform to remain independent.
We will not take any money from a source that looks to gain control over our platform. With your contributions, big or small, our movement can remain completely free from outside influences.
All transactions fully go back to maintaining the blockchain. No exceptions.
- Small transaction fee required to submit the content into the blockchain
- By being crowd-sourced, no funder can control or influence the content anymore than anyone else.
- Citizens can contribute service resources to keep content backed up and/or to test content to ensure it remains valid (and isn’t corrupted).
Join the Zero Theft Movement and Eradicate the Rigged Layer of the Economy
The Zero Theft technology distributes our power between all members of the public, providing you with a secure platform where your voice cannot be suppressed by crony capitalists and corrupt lawmakers. We will truly be independent, uninfluenced by bad actors who think money can buy immunity.
The rigged layer of the economy is responsible for 50 years of stagnant wages, 50 years of anti-competitive markets, and 50 years of government officials succumbing to moneyed interests and regulatory capture. We have been ripped off of trillions of dollars long enough.
It’s about time we fought back, but we need your help.
Past movements against the rigged layer of the economy (e.g. Occupy Wall Street) failed because they did not have the technology nor strong evidence to prove theft is occurring.
We have the technology, and YOU bring the evidence.
The Total Theft Report totals the estimates of our highest rated, citizen-voted investigations into potential instances of rigged economy theft. We now have an accurate estimate of exactly how much is being ripped off and by whom.
Heroism Made Easy
In under twenty minutes, you can comfortably review and vote on a report. All you need to do is decide (1) whether the case actually is theft and (2) if yes, whether the author’s estimate is accurate.
With your consistent participation, our proposals will reach a point where they cannot be ignored. Our strength rests in our numbers (go out and share Zero Theft with your friends and family!). The villains cannot stop our movement when we have all of your support.
Free Educational Articles
An aware and awake public is exactly what those in power fear. We must educate ourselves on these issues, otherwise crony capitalists will continue to deceive us.
On our website ZeroTheft.net, we regularly publish informative articles that teach you all about the rigged economy in small easily digestible chunks.
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 article. 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.
