About the Open Nation Model

The Open Nation Model is a holistic model of how to create a society where human rights are provided for independently of the monetary system. Holistic development includes external development in the world we live in, as well as internal development within ourself as this influences how we perceive and relate to the world.

2015 Open Nation Model will be our first iteration of the synthesizing towards a fully functioning complex socially just, ethical, present, money free, circular-economy society.

The model at this date consists of the following parts:

  • Organizing Change
    • Governance
    • Connect and collaborate
    • Management for organizations
  • External Development
    • Resource Production and Recycling
    • Resource Allocation and Distribution
  • Internal Development
    • Eudaemonic Development/Inner Transformation/Mind-shift
    • Psychological and spiritual/philosophical development

This is based on the context:

  • Perspective
  • Values
  • Assumptions
  • Culture

External Development

We are trying to identify individual and holistic projects for reuse, recycling, produce and allocate the following resources with appropriate technology. This to direct community builders to projects necessary for building their own communities, as well ass highlighting needs for developers of where there is are gaps and shortcomings in the commons-based economy. The resources are:

  1. Clean Water
  2. Nutritious food
  3. Healthy Clothes
  4. Good housing and facilities
  5. Access to Healthcare
  6. Transportation
  7. Education
  8. Information
  9. IT infrastructure. This include hardware such as computers, routers and optical fibers, as well as software, such as data-processing algorithms.

Internal Development

Internal Development follows the SWARM-Model, which is S - Self-actualization and self-transcendence (which includes fulfilling all the other parts of maslow's hierarchy of needs, so that self-actualization can work as a main incentive for development and growth - basically intrinsical motivation) W - Wellbeing A - Altruism R - Responsibility M - Mindfulness

The two most looked at aspects for transcendence are presence and self-inquiry

  • Presence and Mindfulness in daily life
  • Presence and Mindfulness in nature
  • Self-inquiry
  • Connection with animate and inanimate nature
  • Connection with self and others

Network Perspective for a holistically integrated mindful post-capitalist society:(see 2015 Opena Master Document)

  1. Awareness, Perception (Sensing network)
  2. Values and Relations (Communication Network)
  3. Projects (Project network)
  4. Stewardship (Resource network)
  5. Management (enabling 1-6 holistically)
  6. Governance (managing outcome and power)

From an internal perspective we are talking about a Presence and value based management perspective. From an external point of view we are talking about a complexity perspective on management.

  • Multi-Stakeholder participation processes
  • Organizational development and management models
    • Complexity management
    • Project Management
    • Organizational Management


Values instead of Vision and Mission

Values are at the core of how things are evaluated in any society. By trying to make implicit values explicit, we open up the process to honestly reflect over what values we have and which we wish to improve upon, alter or delete.

The idea to focus on effectiveness by how well a sett of values are expressed is the definition of the Value Paradigm. It can be values such as: Quality, GRIT, Effective, Change oriented, Socially just, Environmentally responsible, multiple forms of diversity - including: religious, cultural, bio-diversity, political, and other forms, Altruistic, Self-actualization, presence based awareness, mindful, work is voluntary, post-capitalism, non-monetary based economy, motivation-inducing-environment, openness, accountability, transparency

Or chosing top five-eight values, it can be: Mindfulness, post-capitalism, altruism, diversity, effective and change-oriented. (Internal, External, I, E, Organisatorial, O)

Top 5

  1. Mindfulness
  2. Ethical Post-capitalism
  3. Diversity
  4. Effectiveness
  5. Change-orientedness

Connect and Collaboration: Glocal socially just RBE Resource-Network

fig Glocal collaboration between communities mean that each community is self-reliant, but is connected globally through a mesh-network in order to be part of a greater whole and collaborate on a global scale, as in today's society. The differences from today's society is aimed to be that the stability of each local node is not dependent on the global status of the world, so that if the world at large is having effectivity and resource problems, it should not to a great deal, effect each local node's ability to successfully distribute human rights to its local, and some surrounding at least, inhabitants.

See picture for explanation.

Network Typology

Types of resource networks. Each resource network have glocal-flow ability for increase resilience and adaptability. Glocal resource flow means that each community, or node, have the facilities for closed-loop economies/resource flows of each type of resources defined in through the network typologies below.

Complex Democracy and Governance

  • Edges and democracy: Edges and resource flow-processing-ownership-tracking; how they relate to democratic representation and socially and environmentally just accessibility

Network Dynamics

There are two main types of dynamics: Dynamics between different types of resource-networks. And dynamics within each types of networks. A multi-level model would include the dynamics within various types (levels) of networks, while a uni-level model would look only on a specific network type.

Resource Tracking

Commons Private
Identical Resources 1 2
Distinguishable Resources 3 4

See also Common-pool Reource for an alternative classification system.

  1. Commons based identical resources can be tracked only with type and quantity. Maybe it will make sense to also record and track flow (internal and external), and processing for each type and mother-node.
  2. Private identical resources as above
  3. Commons based distinguishable resources can be tracked by assigning an ID# and assign a mother-node of that ID#.
  4. Private distinguishable resources can be either as tracked as 1 or 3, but not no one, as it may move make the enjoyment of to many resources inaccessible to the rest, and lay the foundation of imbalance, social injustice and in the end the lack of human rights implementation ability.

Commons Based Resources are resources that are available to the grid, so that anyone interested can use them. Commons based distinguishable resources can be tracked by assigning an ID# and assign a mother-node of that ID#.

Private Resources are resources that someone do want only for oneself and should not be made available to the general public. These resources does to a large degree account for the power-imbalance in the contemporary society. To get social justice and ethical power equality it is therefore important to approximate the power-balance in terms of private resources to be able to map and answer to any disproportional power-imbalance.

Identical Resources are resources that are all the same. It can be for example water. If you buy 1 litre of water of a certain quality, then it does not need to be tracked exactly what litre of water it is that you receive, but it is only necessary to track the quantity of this entity. Quantity, processing and flow. No resource ID#

Distinguishable resources are unique, and two of the same may not exist, but if they do they may still be not identical to such a degree that it makes sense to separate them as separate entities.
