Social Services

Social services must be built into the economy at the neighborhood level, accommodated for in the social operation of the economy as well as the physical infrastructure of the neighborhood itself.

Social services must be, and merely be, a normal part of neighborly life. Social services must be provided by neighbors who love each other, and not by the government, not by NGOs, not by any other absurdly inadequate and dysfunctional way.

This is achieved first by changing what it means to work. The economic model runs on the self-sufficient provision of necessary ammenities, where survival is attained through chores and projects, in a humane and healthy model that enables someone to pull their own weight in 20 hours of work per week.

That right there probably eliminates 70-90% of existing need for social services. The remaining need, caring for those who can't pull their weight, can be done joyously, lovingly, by the neighbors, there in paradise.

This possibility is made possible by the synergies of ecological design which culminate in harmonodes.

This is not some new theoretical social concept or politicalism, this is the utmost pragmatism and competent systems design.
