It's actually a very good insight into the workings of markets/economies. I can't see why you wouldn't understand it, or why anyone would be insulted at your lack of understanding...


Case in point.

You catch even the slightest tingle that someone is going to ask the tough questions and you get nasty.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Will you have Priests?


Clergy will consist of Arbitrators in the House of Arbitrators: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kEMCVd244rmykq4iIe2II7BvgUCxvWKPGPaXmygU5sw/...

I'm not insulted that you think part of the explanation of how free markets work is religious dogma, I just think it's pitiful that you can continue to be so wrong.

I think the Chief wants to be an Arbitrator... how does one go about becoming an Arbitrator?

Not an arbitrator - I wanted to be a Cardinal.  I like the robe and the pointy hat.   

Wait . . . .  that doesn't sound right!   Embarrassed

Take this test. If you don't pass it you'll need to freshen up on your economics knowledge. Once you pass, you're in.

https://www.classmarker.com/online-test/start/?quiz=vbk5530f3e658c03

or

https://www.classmarker.com/online-test/start/?quiz=vge52fc45b0b764e

When you pass, forward me a copy of the certificate, as ClassMarker no longer sends the results to the administrator on basic accounts.

Or I can add you as a Class Member if you send me your email.

No Cardinals. Wrong church. But there is a hierarchy of sorts among the clergy, based on length of time as an Arbitrator. Since the Church is new, you would have an advantage if you become one now.

So it's going to be a legalistic sort of religion...

What advantages will there be to being an Arbitrator?

Do I understand that anybody who passes the economics test will be an Arbitrator?

How many levels of bureaucracy will there be above Arbitrator? Is their a Grand Vizier or a Caliph or anything of that equivalency?

On the contrary. It will be opposed to statutory (State) legal mechanisms, and supportive of voluntary legal mechanisms such as tort law, contract law, and property law. The Arbitrators will settle disputes much like the AAA does now.

A popular Arbitrator will get status and earn crypto. Since it is a church, earnings will be tax free, and not need to comply with KYC and AML.

They need to pass the test and sign COP. https://wiki.seasteading.org/index.php/Civil_Order_Pact

No layers. Only agreement between bodies for making changes to the structure or functions. (see my link above).

Sorry, I assumed you would know what I meant when I said "legalistic religion".
