Secrecy Avoidance within model construct
Secrecy is one form of communication action/inaction. From the perspective of "seeking the truth" as a primary objective or purpose, secrecy is a negative practice.
Imagine a model solution with a design that does not reward the player who uses secrecy. Instead most reward comes from playing openly, honestly and truthfully. Turning something into a secret one holds alone or in a small group actually creates negative/no reward for the player(s.)
I believe a very large majority of all the communication today, in the present model, involves some form of secrecy component. Mainly because the model was created with power, money, physical objects, and belief influence as the primary reward.
Consider a model (game) with a different set of rewards: 1) happiness; 2) freedom; 3) recognition; 4) better understanding of what might be the truth; 5) attention/influence; 6) little bit of $$$.
To maximize these rewards you must be creative, transparent and honest. You must freely share your creativity vs. hold it close and keep it a secret from others (all or some.)
In this model ownership does not exist. Everything is free or leased - both objects and concepts.
This is at the heart of the Lease Economy. And secrecy no longer creates so many side problems as it does in our present model.
Secrecy and the misinfo created because of its usage in today's model - because of the need to be the owner of creativity and the reward objects - is at the core of the dead-end design of this model. It encourages most of the negative behavior that is quickly leading to the implosion of itself.
We are witnessing the near death moment of this model. Capitalism (for $$$ reward) has forced the imbalance between humanity and our planet's natural long-term offerings. We are (and have been for decades) consuming the future generation's resources.
But there are possible new models that can create indefinite long-term sustainability. So do not give up hope and continue to help work to shift into a better model.
The Lease Economy is just a starting place tangible offering to build upon. It, as is, is NOT the answer. It's importance comes from its innovative concepts. It's always easier to compare what we have now to something as tangible and possible.
Don't give up imagining and creating the better tomorrow! And most of all DO NOT keep your ideas a secret. All great things grow from seeds in one person's mind when those seeds are improved upon with the help of others minds.
