What would Asterix & Obelix do as 'INDIGENOUS' (Latin 'self-generating') Celtic Gaulois peoples? Before the oligarch commanded invasion by Romans, Gaul ('France' as land of the 'Free') like all the world's indigenous peoples exemplified LOVING SOLIDARITY WHERE WE LIVE & WORK with Multistakeholder (Founder, Worker, Manager, Supplier, Townspeople & Consumer etc) Participation in the collective Multihome-Dwelling-Complex (eg Longhouse, Pueblo & Kanata style architecture) domestic, industrial & commercial economies. We are still now everywhere living under oligarch top-down command & control, divided & conquered. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/relational-economy/extending-our-welcome-participatory-multi-home-cohousing

Time-based equivalency accounting on the COWRIE STRING-SHELL used in the specialized Production-Society-Guilds as a system of recognition for all contributions recognizing experience, expertise, decision-making acumen & progressive ownership within these. String-shell was used worldwide (eg. Wampum on Turtle-island N.America, Quipu in S. America & Cowrie in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia & all islands. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/relational-economy.

PRODUCTION-SOCIETY-GUILDS with Collective intelligence & good decision-making at all levels of operation by invested stakeholders brings high profitability as well as the highest environmental performance. Pollution = lost materials function = lost profitability. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/structure/7-participatory-companies

Indigenous peoples operated on a 'FRACTAL' ('fraction, multiplier, building-block, where-the-part-contains-the-whole') empowered organization from the individual, friends, family, extended-family, multihome, village, city, region, nation, confederacy, continental & hemispheric Council Process. All humanity's 'indigenous' (Latin 'self-generating') ancestors before violent colonization divide & conquer had formal 'Council-Processes', which enabled all people to engage through dialogue/debate. Its this lack of formal dialogues in our homes, families, multihome-buildings, business, schools. Mohandas Gandhi developed 'Satyagraha' (Hindi 'truth-search') based upon simultaneous inquiry with both parties in dispute or re-search asking "What are your best intentions & how can we help you fulfill these?". Gandhi, "I can imagine a fully armed man to be at heart a coward. Possession of arms implies an element of fear, if not cowardice. But true non-violence is an impossibility without the possession of unadulterated fearlessness." We need transparency in all levels of human interaction including military, government, education, business listening to both sides. DIALECTIC RIGHTS We need to openly engage each other. As Socrates proposed, dialectics (both-sided inquiry) should be the foundation of social & economic literacy. Most conflicts, issues & events in our colonially manipulated & consumptive world aren’t as they appear. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/structure/both-sides-now-equal-time-recorded-dialogues

To recapture humanity's economic memory, we can begin to think like our body is designed from the parts to the whole. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/structure/3-economic-memory
