A Thede Union
I have not figured out a name, and what I am dreaming up I do not think has a name. I will leave that to the marketing department. Please pick this idea apart. Only through constructive criticism can an odd idea be made better. What I envision is this: a nonprofit charity crossed with an REIT crossed with a union crossed with a universal basic income (UBI).
Mechanics of the idea is a pool of capital used for real estate investment to generate income. Nothing flashy, simply seeking decent cap-ex rates of return. Primary concern is on safety of capital, not reaching for yield. Now an REIT has shares one purchases to receive disbursements and the distributions must be 90% of the earnings. Our version of REIT distributions would be sent to Thede Union members. By being a nonprofit charity, we could dodge a taxation issue for the organization as well as "hide" motives. Every year, the members get their UBI. Basically this is a charity with massive real estate holdings that distributes proceeds to it's members who are designated as recipients of charity.
Our thede. Not their thede. Strict enforcement of who is let in. I envision the covenants that go into co-ops in NYC or possibly setting it up like annual, renewable grants. Signing up for the thede union is not simple signing the paperwork, one must read it and live it. Like any union, their are duties one would have to satisfy to receive benefits. Hell, if some union members wanted to make an election in December not to receive their UBI but to reinvest it into the charity, we could do that. Think of the thede. How often do parents complain about "safe" things for entertainment for their kids? Couldn't some thede members curate or create thede reinforcing books, essays and whatnot for consumption by others in the thede. How many in the thede homeschool? Could you provide home schooling materials, essays, research, whatnot that we could distribute for use by the thede or even for "non-whig history". I am talking small numbers, so why not consider the non-financial support for a thede member expecting a child? Can you cook? We could figure out what we need and call upon different thede members like the Godfather. Could we bump thede members additional UBI if they do things we consider positive, like having a kid, marriage, work within the group or even outside the group? I'm brainstorming here, but consider the idea of building a society that is quasi-outside society.
Nancy Pelosi once said something that touches on why this Thede Union UBI could build outside while destroying the current system. Nancy Pelosi gave a rationale for health care reform of (paraphrased), "think of how many more artists we could have without worry of health care". Now conservakin made fun of the frozen faced witch, but she was getting at kernel of truth in the modern trap. How many Americans work a job they don't want or are improperly used because they need health care? Pelosi could have rephrased it to, "No one should have to work a crummy job they don't want just for health care," and a lot of people would have clapped, nodded their heads, andagreed. She used the artist thing because that's the SWPLs dream. A UBI works similar for our thede in a few ways. "No one should have to work a sh*tty job just to exist in a safe space in crumbling America." I'm just going to number a bunch of ways I could see this helping..
1. Even if it is small, it could supplement or cover child care if you went that route.
2. If a woman wanted to take years off to stay home with the kids, the UBI gives a cushion for the financial calculation part of that decision. "Gee honey we save by not paying for day care and the UBI makes up for some of my lost income!"
3. If the UBI was even 5K per year, what does the gap between having a BA and not having a BA shrink down to? Maybe more people go into trades rather than college if they know they'll get an extra 5K a year and NOT have college debt. Added bonus is fewer people go into the college indoctrination system. We could keep our thede away from progressive poisoning. Starve the university dragon to death.
4. This would kind of act like insurance in the event of unpersoning by the SJWs. it isn't going to make up for a 100K salary, but a blue collar worker making 20-35K annually would have some security with a 5K annual UBI.
5. This UBI allows for people to rearrange their work schedules. What if 20 hours a week to The Man is all you want as you build a life outside the system. Stop chasing shekels! Life is more than economics. "I am not a number, I am a free man!"
6. Live in a great area that has crummy schools because the apartment buildings 3 miles away that are stuffed with the underclass and UN refugees? I bet that 5K UBI would help tremendously for making a decision on should we stay and go private schools or should we sell and bug out.
7. If you were starting a business, you could operate at a slight loss because the UBI would subsidize you.
Does it end there? No it doesn't have to. The current regime's system has created a mess of things, and we can find loopholes to build around it. Here's something that the homosexuals have helped us with in this instance that they never intended. The gays and their straight enablers have barked up a storm for marriage. Well, this is because they did not realize how a government marriage is all they were getting. What does a government marriage get you? You would be shocked to find out how many health care, financial and other institutions are open to domestic partners and other beneficiary designations. What does government marriage get you gays? It gets you access to family court. Gays now go through that ringer. What if the Thede Union had provisions for its married members? What if a marriage of thede members getting a UBI had some financial disincentives for the ones who break the covenant? What if you could avoid government marriage, get married in the Thede Union for the UBI bonus, and a divorce wouldn't have government meddling since it was not a government marriage. You would subject your divorce assessment to the Thede arbitration unit. This wouldn't be insanity. The current system is insanity, and everyone but whorrible women know it is broken (deliberate misspelling). We do not have to have a perfect system, but we could easily divide property in a reasonable fashion appealing to many. You can still get the frivolous divorce, but you now do not get your UBI anymore. I hear our Thede has some lawyers, and their services to the Union would be a part of collecting their UBI. An actual easier leap would be to set up a Thede bank outside the FDIC/Federal Reserve system along Austrian lines or at a minimum a Thede life insurance policy so no one would be unable to pay for a proper burial. Let's stick to just the UBI though for this idea before I go off too far.
Our Thede actually has a really good core basis for setting this up. You'd be shocked how much the real estate bubble missed red states and flyover country. The cathedral's eye would not be as aware of quiet, small moves. I would not limit this purely to turning a REIT based on rental properties, but it'd be a base, but what about Timber land holdings? Farmland is a different matter, and I'd avoid. You could use a little leverage at the near zero rates to expand the base quickly. The red state zones offer great ROI for starting up, plus the leech possibilities on the current system. Instead of the parasites sucking out money from us, which will happen regardless, why not explicitly target real estate holdings that have section 8 tenants? The transfer of wealth would be from all US taxpayers, Asian-Oil-FED lending to our Thede through the conduit of section 8. The underclass becomes a financial conduit for our Thede Union. Bwahaha, maniacal laughter as we find a way to use the underclass against the system for our group. That is roughly what McDonald's is now, so why not do it for us?
Now the world is still going to go on around you. You will interact with it and live your life. We're just trying to divorce you from the addiction of the monthly paycheck to stay in their system. If the progs have spent decades now destroying any institution that could create competing bonds like the family, the churchs, the private clubs, then why not create a competing bond that is more aligned with our thede's interest so it takes care of the asabiyah issue while providing a bit of financial replacement for their system. Here is another item why I walk down the charity route. President Nixon and Daniel Patrick Moynihan saw the value of a UBI. Part of it was reducing costs and sending a higher percentage of every government dollar to the recipient. Another part of it was doing away with the corrosive social workers who did more to enable the underclass or push borderline people into the underclass to secure their jobs. How separate from the underclass are the middle to upper middle class donors from it? This is like the old mutual aid societies of yore.
This is a changing piece to charity in society. Scale has allowed charity to be removed from church and community to large corporations that are umbrellas for the wide reaching social workers. That divide mentality has only grown, and now how do you fell about charities? They are all pozzed. Every single "Day of Caring" that my company does with the United Way turns off a few volunteers from ever donating money again. Once you see who is getting it or where it is going, you get a bit disturbed. My division moved away from toys at Christmas for the needy to simply food drives. If I can set it up as a real estate holding CHARITY that acts like a union, suddenly those of the thede who might feel the drive to give to those less fortunate have an outlet. It is an outlet that would be tax free to the IRS. It is an outlet that they would know their money is going to their people. Once again, using the system's loopholes to build a program to help people get outside their system.
Part of this dawned on me while researching Nixon's UBI attempt. Another part was learning the money mechanics of a mega-non-denominational church in Indiana. The foundation of their funding was a core of five, wealthy families. That is all. The church grew rapidly and into a massive community. The physical structure was giant, and they had a lot of programs for their community. The church borrowed money, thinking more and bigger would
I know this sounds a bit odd and pie in the sky, but so is hoping for secession. I am trying to think differently for an exit. You only lost your time or might have strained your eyes rolling them at the idea if you made it this far. I am trying to find an economic escape, which is basically all that is holding the US together, with a ethnic component relating to the thede. This all goes back to my view that Christianity provided an exit and some voice for Roman subjects from the dying, corrupt empire. The early Church carved out enclaves for people by providing them basic food, some care and a sense of community and voice within their community that they could not find in Rome. It offered a chance to build something worthy of their hopes as well as picking good parts of their past. Christian patches sprouted within the Empire early on, and built a viable community that could not only survive but swallow the dying Empire. In the end, the foundations of said patchwork formed what sprouted across Europe. I'm not saying this is a huge idea that could rebuild Western Civilization. I'm not that ambitious with this as I know the parts that build it but have not figured out exactly what it is. I'm just trying to find you an exit.
