The recent series of entries to the Compendium have underlined the need for the next series of entries for this week and the next. Those topics in question are as follows:
-An Introduction to the Work-Standard to complement the existing entry related to the specifications that define all Currencies. It will be a multi-part series devoted to the various recurring concepts that appear in the various entries within the Compendium;
-Why the Characteristics of the Work-Standard set itself apart from all other Alternative Currencies like “Labour Vouchers” and “Time-Based Currencies”;
-The National-Socialized Financial Instruments (NSFIs) of the Kontor, the “Financial Office” designed to be a Socialistic alternative to the Financial Market and its Liberal Capitalist Financial Instruments (LCFIs);
-Investigations into the Role of NSFIs in “Mission-Type Economic Planning” (MTEP) to be used alongside the “Vocational Civil Service” (VCS) economic model and the “Work-Standard.” MTEP is unlike most forms of economic plans insofar as its properties are a direct result of the Work-Standard and NSFIs;
-Elaboration on the Role of the Mechanization Rate and the distinct Metrics employed by the Work-Standard. These entries will always include separate ones devoted to their known Liberal Capitalist equivalents with equations for comparison and contrasting purposes;
-The Role of Council Democracy as strategically vital to the Work-Standard, including how it would function in both theory and practice with historical examples;
-A Multi-Part Reading of Ernst Jünger’s Der Arbeiter, which was a continuation of “Total Mobilization” that ultimately conceptualized the Arbeiter, an archetypal figure that is considered to be the opposite of the Anarch from Eumeswil;
-An Investigation into the Concept of Dasein from Martin Heidegger in relation to the Work-Standard;
-The Study of Guilds and the potential for their possible return under the Work-Standard;
-Concepts of “Real Trade Agreements,” Economic and Military Alliances, Work-Standard Methodologies in the conduct of Protectionist and Autarkic policies;
-Why the Work-Standard is more suitable for the “Splinternet” than the Internet as it exists in its current form as the World-Wide Web;
-And Studies into “Hamiltonianism,” the American Federalist worldview of Alexander Hamilton and whether the Work-Standard is capable of revolutionizing the “American System” in a distinctly Socialistic direction that not even the Soviet Union was capable of achieving.
As one can tell, the entries in the Compendium as of late cover politics, economics, finance, philosophy, and economic history. What I will eventually cover at some point in the near future are topics related to the Work-Standard in its relationships with the armed forces, financial and informational technologies and their applications, and hopefully ample forays into its philosophical and theoretical origins. Four of its historical influences like Spengler, Jünger, Heidegger and Hamilton have been mentioned, but there were a few dozen or so other historical figures whose works have yet to be introduced.
Overall, it should be made apparent by now that the SMP Compendium has yet to be completed. I am expecting the whole document to be completed sometime before the end of this year.
