What are the rules and regulations of the community?

While a full transcript of the rules should be decided by a committee of the initial members, essentially it should cover the ethical oath of your initial entry, the principal routines during the day of the members. The balance of hours between individuals; work, chores and duties, learning, training and teach, relaxing, reflecting leisure and the assignment of tasks.

The document should also cover inappropriate behaviour but should more generally state what is good and assume a certain level of individual responsibility and cognisance of what is inappropriate or morally wrong . All interactions should stem from respect, patience and responsibility.

Finally, the document should clearly state all the positions within the community, the methods of electing such people, those who are permitted to vote and the powers invested in each station and the procedures for making amendments to the original document.

[note: I know essentially this describes a constitution but I obviously wasn’t thinking about it at the time, it borders on a semi-political / ethical document that describes and enforces the ideals of the community.]

 

9 – Code of conduct

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The founding members should draw up a universal code of conduct within the institution. This constitution should consider respecting the civil liberties of the individual, but there should be a system of induction available for the community’s lifetime members.

To be clear, all individuals’ rights and freedoms are to be protected, but it is not a certainty that all people can become lifetime members; this is the same as any institution. Although I would hope all transitory visitors are allowed temporary access.

[present note: this is written directly from the notebook and shows how confused my original thoughts were, this is an incoherent mess of thoughts ranging from the institutional structure of moral standards to forms of induction into the community, it then goes on to talk about visiting transient members. Things do improve in later texts as the focus improves.]
