Democracy NOW

by Johnny Cash on May 09, 2017

Democracy NOW

Hello everyone,

The empowr engineers have been reviewing the AMCO cash outs that the system is about to distribute, and the summary is that the per-person cash out amounts are not going to satisfy many of you.

There’s just not enough cash to go out to provide meaningful cash outs to most, given that your sales and purchases have more than doubled, yet again, from the month before (from February to March) but cash flowing into empowr has not. 

Why is that? Why do cash outs per person shrink as the empowr economy succeeds?

The success of the empowr economy is good news – it’s exactly what you have been working so hard for.

That success means that everyone can use their empowr profits to purchase any of millions of products and services. It means that we’re that much closer to fulfilling our mission.

 That same success also means that the average size of each individual citizen’s AMCO cash out is shrinking, because cash outs are based on sales, and sales have grown more than 200 times (20,000%) in the last 8 months, while the outside cash flowing into empowr has grown only 2 times over that same period.

I know this concept (why empowr’s success is leading to smaller cash outs) has been difficult for some of our citizens to grasp. Again, take a moment to refresh your memory here.

I know it’s frustrating because you could really use more cash, to pay for living expenses as well as things like shipping costs for your product sales.

As you know, we’re in the process of rolling out many different features to help alleviate many pain points you have brought up – features such as empowr transport (to near-eliminate shipping costs) and the app platform (to allow thousands of developers to bring features to you, without waiting for empowr).

 

But while we’re working on those things:

Rather than provide tiny cash outs that we’re sure will insult many people, I believe it’s time for the community to take control of many aspects of the community, including AMCO cash outs, in accordance with empowr’s mission.

In other words, it’s clear that we’re getting to the stage as a community where more democracy is becoming a requirement, as opposed to a “nice to have”.

Today, I’m going to suggest that we begin our move to democratization immediately, pushing power away from the empowr corporate headquarters, to our community members.

 

NOTE: You’ll want to pay very close attention here, as what we’re discussing will affect a lot more than your AMCO cash outs.

 

In this post, we’ll discuss:

Democracy... why now?
The Approach
Questions
Next Steps

 

Democracy... why now?

It’s simple. empowr was set up to “enable opportunity, hope and influence” for you, our citizens -- as opposed to “maximizing shareholder value”, which is the main driver of most other corporations.

With all the progress we’ve made together in recent months and years, we’re rapidly getting to a stage where many of the things you want and need, will most optimally be determined and controlled by you, as opposed to empowr employees working in an office on the other side of the country or world.

As you may remember, about 90 days ago, I suggested we move forward with further democratization (in a post titled “Cash outs, frustrations and democracy”) but you overwhelmingly convinced us to delay moving forward.

Well, I sincerely believe that the time to hand over power of the community to you, is now.

 

One size doesn’t fit all

It’s becoming quite clear that things that work for our citizens in, say, South Carolina or Malaysia don’t work optimally for our citizens in, say, Mexico or New Jersey.

 

What things?

By things, I’m referring to the community and marketplace policies and rules, enforcement, approaches, features and capabilities.

We’ll get into more specific examples in a moment, but the list of those things is endless -- limited only by your imagination.

The bottom line is that unless we open up the power to change things to you, in the ways you want them changed, many of the issues or opportunities you want or need will continue to remain unaddressed.

Of course we're aware of the many issues, but imagine the ability to resolve many of them much faster, and on your own terms.  You'll no longer be waiting for empowr to address each and every issue.

 

The Approach

Take a look at what’s happening in your country or neighboring countries. In most cases, it doesn’t look pretty.

Here in the United States, our federal government has become a joke. Approval and trust in our government and its various institutions has fallen to record lows based on the U.S.’s government’s inability to get anything accomplished.

Part of the problem is that the people – the citizens -- in most countries are becoming divided.

The people disagree with each other on many important topics. And therefore, their national governments are at a standstill and cannot generate forward progress.

There is some hope, however.

At a local level much more progress is happening. The more local you look (cities vs. states) the more progress you see.

That’s because it’s a little easier for people in a city, or even a state, to agree on a set of policies.

So why do we think that most citizens in empowr will agree on most things?

We don’t.

As empowr grows, its citizens will disagree with each other on a lot of things...

... from what types of content or commerce activity should be allowed... 

... to what should happen when people break the rules...

... to how funds should be spent including how cash outs should be distributed...

... to what opportunities should be opened up to new citizens at various stages...

... to... the list is endless.

 

Local governance is the better approach

Along with giving you the power to vote and choose the empowr’s president, we believe that – just as importantly -- you should have the ability to vote and elect your local leaders, and you should have the power to control and change things at a local level.

In that manner, if the people of, say, Ukraine are frustrated by the inability of the platform to accept their local billing systems, they can change that.

Or if some of our friends in, say, Saudi Arabia believe that some of the photos people upload to their empowr accounts show too much skin, they would have the ability to create and enforce new rules.

Or, if our empowr citizens in Mexico believe that the platform should be available in Spanish, they would have the ability to localize the platform to their liking.

Therefore, as quickly as possible, we want to give you the power to form local countries, vote and elect your leaders, discuss and set the rules and approaches and control the platform at a local level.

 

But wait.

 

Didn’t we just say that people all over the world are having tremendous difficulty in agreeing with each other in their countries?

So, does that mean that, once we give empowr citizens in, say, Russia the power to modify empowr to their liking, that Russian empowr citizens will have an impossible time agreeing on most things?

Yes, I believe that’s exactly what will happen.

As an example, some people in the Muslim world are quite conservative in their social lives, and they believe that women should have their faces covered when in the public.

Yet others in those same countries are more liberal in their views. They may have opposing views about women's rights and freedoms. 

 

To use another example, here in the United States:

Nearly half the country believe that Donald Trump is fantastic (and Obama was a fool). 

And the other half believe almost exactly the opposite.

The people of the U.S. have probably never been more divided, with only a few exceptions in the country’s history.

 

It’s clear that localizing down to the country level is not going to work.

     Unless...

Unlike the world’s countries, which are based on unmovable land, empowr has one key advantage. 

We exist in cyberspace.

 

Just imagine....

... if our citizens could form their own countries, created to best match their citizens’ values & beliefs, wants & needs.

For example, what if one of our citizens formed a new country and called it “Liberal Pakistan” – making it clear that she’s founding this country as a place for Pakistanis that are liberal in their social thinking. Do you think some people would join it?

Another country might be formed with the opposite values and beliefs in mind, where (as an example) lingerie and bathing suits are not allowed in photos. Some people would want to join this one.

 

Or, imagine a new country being formed, with its founders making it clear that this country is being formed by people with “fiscally liberal and socially conservative values”.

And of course another might be formed by people that are fiscally on the conservative side, but liberal in their social views.

 

A new way of organizing the world?

As more and more of everyone’s commerce, communication and information move to the web and apps...

... people around the world will want a greater say in the way all of that happens for them.

By being the first to enable our members to form democratic economy-enabled countries that don’t force them to be directly tied down to their current (land-based) countries, I believe together we are the pioneers at what will become the primary way the world will be organized.

 

Why?

 

I see this approach as, quite possibly, the only path for the people of the world to come out of the deep division they’re facing...

... a division that’s causing a lack of progress in many areas that are important to them.

Now, instead of two (or more) sections of society endlessly battling each other...

... a battle that neither side will ever win but is resulting in the paralysis of both society and government...

...  we’ll all be able to join like-minded people in democratic economy-enabled environments, where at the very least, we start with an agreement about our core values and beliefs.

 

With those common values and beliefs as a foundation, we can then have lots of discussions and agreements, fights and disagreements, trials, errors and successes...

... in our common quest for progress and prosperity.

Those healthy disagreements between people who share the same general values and beliefs, are exactly what’s needed to make a democracy healthy and successful.

Starting next week, empowr citizens will uniquely be able to create countries without physical borders; for the reasons stated here, I truly believe this is the beginning of a new world order.

 

Questions

Can anyone form a country?
What’s the process of creating a country?
What does it take to become the citizen of a country?
Can you switch from country to country?
Who is the leader of the country?
What’s to stop people from creating many (fake) accounts just for voting?
What if we end up with millions of countries, each with exactly one or few citizens?
Can you be a citizen of multiple countries?
What powers will the countries have?

 

As far as answers, I’ll quickly share my opinions – but they are just that – opinions. 

The more optimal answers will come from our collective intelligence, as well as from practice (trial and error) until we get it right. 

Let's get right to it.

 

Can anyone form a country?

Yes

 

What’s the process of creating a country?

Creating a country will be as simple as naming it, and mentioning what it stands for.  What makes it different such that it deserves to be a country? More details soon on the creation process but it will be that simple.

 

What does it take to become the citizen of a country?

One click.

 

Can you switch from country to country?

Yes. But not more than once every 90 days. So choose carefully.

 

Who is the leader of the country?

The country’s President, elected by the citizens of that country, through multiple rounds of voting.

 

What’s to stop people from creating many (fake) accounts just for voting?

Each account’s voting is not equal. If your account was just created a few minutes ago, or has had no activity, it will have nearly zero voting power. 

Your account will, however, have lots of voting power, if you have been building the empowr economy:  Take how many times you hit your daily goal (all-time) and multiply that number by your all-time number of “item received” sales.

Do you remember the “stock option points” calculation? Soon that will be renamed to something more appealing such as “Mission Points”.

Starting in about 48 hours from now, you’ll be able to click or rollover your all-time daily goals badge (at the top right of your profile) to see your Mission Points already calculated for you.

Now, your “Mission Points” will determine your voting power, as well as your potential stock option ownership.


What if we end up with millions of countries, each with exactly one citizen?

When a new country is first being formed, it will be called a “pre-country”. 

As soon as it grows to have enough “Mission Points” (by adding up the Mission Points of all the citizens that have joined the “pre-country”) it qualifies and becomes an official country on empowr.

At first, only 100 countries will be allowed to form. (If we need to, we’ll open up the opportunity for more). 

After that limit is reached, periodically the bottom-performing 5% of countries (based on their Mission Points) will be warned, and if they don’t get out of the bottom 5%, they’ll automatically be converted back into a pre-country. 

That means that new (pre) countries will need to wait for any existing countries to drop back into pre-country mode -- at which point the pre-countries with the most Mission Points will become new, official countries.


Can you be a citizen of multiple countries?

No. By becoming a citizen of a country, you’re agreeing to abide by and live with by the policies, rules, approaches and features of that country, so being a citizen of multiple countries will make it impossible for you to know what the rules are that apply to you.

You can, however, be a member of many pre-countries. As soon as any of them become a country, your citizenship will be transferred to the new country, and you won’t be able to switch for 90 days. You’ll also be dropped from any other pre-countries you joined.

And by the way, you don’t have to join a country if you don’t want to, although you won’t enjoy many of the benefits they’ll provide. So for maximum empowrment, we highly recommend that you join (or create) a country.

 

What powers will the pre-countries and countries have?

The primary power of pre-countries is to prepare to become a country. Once you set up a pre-country, people can join it, and discussion can start.

The powers of countries and their elected officials will be limitless. We imagine that, going forward, our jobs as employees of empowr will be focused in a large way on opening up more and more controls to the countries.

Also, using the empowr app platform, we will open up APIs so that you can actually build your own capabilities, features and controls -- and even provide (or sell) those innovations to other countries via the empowr app platform.

 

Here are some of the items that we’ll be working on opening up to your local control:

Localization and language
Community and commerce rules and procedures
Content and marketplace moderation
Success Coach hiring, training, managing and auditing
The ability to launch and control billing platforms
Distribution of AMCO cash outs
Presidential election and terms (president chooses cabinet members)
Election of judges
Citizen penalties, suspensions and removals

 

Let’s get back to the topic of AMCO (Accelerated Matured Cash Out) distributions

Note: Here, I’m only talking about accelerated AMCO cash outs -- and NOT regular matured cash outs or ECOs (early cash outs).

As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, your sales and purchases (from Feb to March) doubled yet again. Congratulations!  But of course that means shrinking cash outs on a dollar to dollar basis. 

Do you remember the story we shared a few weeks ago, where the citizens in some imaginary island went from $2 in “AMCO cash outs” for each dollar they sold, to only 3 pennies ($0.03) per dollar they sold? 

Well, following with that example, with sales doubling again you can expect those “3 pennies” to drop to “1.5 pennies’ per dollar sold. (Again, that was just an example).

 

Going forward, AMCO cash outs will only happen at a local country level... with decisions coming from your elected officials, using rules and approaches that you create with them.

 

The new AMCO cash out process

1.  Each month, empowr will add up all the cash that comes into empowr from each country’s citizens – regardless of what they were paying for (ads, ad platform fees, power user subscriptions, marketplace purchases, etc.).

2.  empowr will then provide 97% of all that cash back to each country. For the sake of transparency, if we can get around everyone’s privacy concerns, empowr will provide full details to the country’s elected officials, showing exactly which of their citizens brought how much cash into empowr.

Note:  empowr will use the other 3% to run the company, servers and payroll for employees, and to fund item no. 4, below.

3.  Each country will decide how they want to give AMCO cash outs to their citizens.

4.   empowr will provide an ability for citizens to contribute cash to their country’s cash out pool. 

When they do that, it will add to their personal and their country’s “Mission Points”.

empowr will match that cash (dollar for dollar) -- and 100% of that combined cash will be provided to the country, for distribution as AMCOs to the citizens of that country.

5.   All profits from citizens that are deleted or removed due to inactivity, will be returned to the country for distribution to that country’s citizens.

How will that happen?  Perhaps each time you progress to the next power level color, at that moment you’ll automatically receive a lump sum payment that was sourced from accounts that went inactive or were removed.

 

Let’s make this happen fast

The sooner we form our local countries and conduct our elections, the sooner we will be up and running again with AMCOs.

Again, I am talking about accelerated (AMCO) cash outs here, not regular matured cash outs that have not accelerated.  Nothing is changing with regular (non-accelerated) matured cash outs.

And for the people that will still be in pre-countries – meaning they’re waiting to become official “countries”:

We are working on an idea to get cash to you. We'll talk about it in a just day or two – the moment our engineers have confirmed the approach and built any enabling technology needed. It's basically a fun way to distribute all the cash to you, based on your mission points (sales and daily goals) and yet have no one be offended by the amount of the cash. Think of it almost as a lottery approach. Again, more on that soon.

 

Next steps

The only step for you right now, is to start thinking about what country you would like to form.

What beliefs and values do you have, that you believe are shared with enough other citizens in the empowr community? 

In other words, what is your country’s purpose or mission? Why would a fellow citizen want to join you?”

What will you name your country?

Who will be the founders of your country (your nation’s mothers and fathers)?

Discuss this with other empowr citizens.

We’ll give you a couple of days, and then later this week we’ll open the process so you can form your country, broadcast your pre-country’s existence, and people can start joining it.

 

An important milestone

This is an important moment that -- speaking for many of us here at empowr -- we have all been working towards: 

Giving YOU the freedom and opportunity to self-govern and have control over the decisions that most affect YOUR life. 

This is exactly what empowr has been building toward... a platform for its citizens, operated by its citizens.   

This has always been one of the major objectives – and why the empowr platform was created.

We promise to listen and work as hard as we can...

... to open up more controls and abilities for you...

... so you can have the power to decide and take action, when specific things become important to you.

 

Nothing but smooth sailing ahead?

That was a trick question.  I’ll answer that question with a quote from Robert Kennedy:

         “Democracy is messy, and it's hard. It's never easy”. 

 We are committed to do our absolute best, to make it as easy as possible for you.

But we would be lying if we pretended that any of this will be easy. Or that change will come fast.

What we can promise you is that we will keep at it.

We will not quit. We’ll keep marching forward, one issue at a time, one line of code at a time, or feature at a time.

Each time we get egg in our face or are knocked down, we will get right back up, wipe our faces, raise our chins and keep moving forward until everyone is satisfied.

 

Summary

1.  Together, 8 months ago, we decided that the most important thing we needed to do to accomplish our mission was to grow the empowr economy.

Since then, you have succeeded in doubling the size of empowr’s economy (sales and purchases) every single month.

2.  To continue our rapid pace of progress, the next step needed is to push more power to YOU so that the decisions being made are optimal to your needs.

Effective immediately, our engineering team has been issued a mandate to shift control of as many platform functions and features as possible to the community, including language, policies, moderation, coaching, billing, accelerated cash outs, judicial systems, elections, and enforcement.

3.  No AMCO cash outs will be distributed tomorrow.

Regular matured and early cash outs are not affected.

4.  AMCOs will now be handled by countries.

You’ll be able to start forming countries approximately 48 hours from now.

5.  A new lottery system is being designed to distribute AMCO cash outs to citizens in pre-countries, citizens not in countries, as well as those citizens of countries that choose to utilize this new distribution approach.

We’re rushing to launch this feature this week with objectives of continuing to provide AMCO cash outs while also increasing the average size of those cash outs during this peaceful transition of power.

 

Are you ready to take control?

What features and controls do you need or want first?

Hi Sharif, thank you for taking the time to comment here! Please keep in mind, as detailed above, AMCO cash outs will be determined by the country you are in. There will be many ways to distribute cash outs soon and these methods will be decided by YOUR country! :) empowr is also implementing a new lottery system to distribute AMCO cash outs to citizens in pre-countries, citizens not in countries, as well as those citizens of countries that choose to utilize this new distribution approach. We’re rushing to launch this feature this week with objectives of continuing to provide AMCO cash outs while also increasing the average size of those cash outs.

Hello Delilah Jones

Thank you for clarifying that information, as there's a lot to take in right now so I would like to repeat it here for everyone.

"empowr is also implementing a new lottery system to distribute AMCO cash outs to citizens in pre-countries, citizens not in countries, as well as those citizens of countries that choose to utilize this new distribution approach. We’re rushing to launch this feature this week with objectives of continuing to provide AMCO cash outs while also increasing the average size of those cash outs. Thank you for your continued support of empowr!"

Keynotes above is knowing that Empowr is not just focusing on having people create new countries but also on the transistional process to get there to make sure that no one is left behind, that AMCO's continue to go out during this transitional phase in a manner that helps to increase the size of those cashouts \ (•◡•) /

I spend a lot of money ... to buy goods and sell them again in empowr. Why I do not get the profit that suits what I sell. What do i do after this? Because more and more losses. And many buyers I have not yet sent their products..
This is because AMCO is not balanced with the price of the goods ... and this month there is no AMCO ... Please help me...

This blog will help for transparency in AMCO. And of course, it should be like this as people of each country will get back their money like this. They will not have any complaint to the empowr community as they are getting a share of 97% of total collection amount of their own country. Good step. I welcome this.

Mila Sorensen

Hi Arjit, we're glad that you've found the post helpful, and that you feel it provides transparency. empowr's objective is to give YOU as empowr citizens, the power to make important decisions (for example, regarding AMCO cash outs), rather than the empowr team making such decisions. Each country should have the power to decide what is best for themselves. We hope that you're ready to start exercising your power! Thanks, Arjit!

Once the announcements are made if anyone needs help in creating a country or joining one please let me know, as I think the key to Empowr success is people finding countries that match their passion.

There will be a country for everyone to join.

I know this because I'm creating a country where everyone is welcomed and it's a country that's being designed to help other countries succeed as well as matching people to countries where it can ignite their passion to making their country stronger, which in return will make the foundation of Empowr stronger. Which at the end of the day helps my country, so it's a win-win for everyone to more successful you become.

I'll post this as a new comment as well \ (•◡•) /

All I know to say right this moment is: Oh, yeah, wow, that's a lot to take in. Didn't see that coming. What I am concerned about is, what am I going to explain to my clients.

Hi Marijke! First, thank you for your continued dedication as an empowr success coach. I know that you take a lot of pride in your work, and that you always do your best to provide the absolute best service to your students. :) Coaches should continue to carry on coaching as they have been. We will certainly announce if any changes are made. What are you thoughts on coaching, and how it might relate to the new countries that will begin forming?

Ana Montano Johnston

Wow... I am a bit disappointed! I was hoping to get an AMCO cash out for the sales I did last March! I have spent close to 3k USD for selling items in the marketplace! I wish you have informed us ahead of time, not just in 48 hrs time, so that I wouldn't have risk my money. Not to mention the time spent hitting my daily goals everyday, trying to juggle between family, home, work, social life and empowr. Now, I don't know if I will ever recover, if you say through matured cash out or early cash outs, I would say it is not likely to happen because as soon as I have some that matured in say 30-60 days, it get's spent when I do upgrade on my power level.. Since the beginning, I only received AMCOs.. and early cash outs that are actually my own money just being given back as rebate wjen I pay my ad platform fees..

I would still continue to be an empowr citizen though as I still believe in the platform. I will however be cautious on how I spend money here though.. I would also not just give up my power level now and the ownership points I have so worked hard to build up.. I hope someday, my perseverance would pay off.. I also made so many friends here so I will stay ;-) GO EMPOWR!!

Delilah Jones

Ana, thank you for sharing your concerns with us. Please keep in mind that you will still qualify for an AMCO for the work you put in this month. It will just be through the lottery system we are constructing or through the country you choose to join (or form!). Please also note, that being at your highest power user level and continuing to buy, sell, share, and transport in the marketplace will only help further those Mission Points! Also, empowr transport layer has launched it's first stage thus far, which will help alleviate local shipping costs and sharing will enable you to incur recurring revenue which will help ensure you always have revenue coming in. We understand it is A LOT pretty fast but please know we're on your side and working as fast as we can! Thank you for your continued support and stay tuned for even more details!

This is been the most complicated aspects on Empowr is to a create a new democratic country even though it is virtual but the economy is there. It cannot be made by 48 hours but a country name, beliefs, and mission can be.

It is like we are playing around and then turn it out into reality - a Virtual reality I can say.

I have a mix-up feeling on this for the moment, getting excited and feeling blue. Feeling blue because there will be no AMCO this time. Hope my April AMCO will arrive soon. It might help lighten up a little. I need it.

Possible will add more comments later. I have to think of a country name. Hoping for Scandinavians to participate.

Katherine, thank you for voicing your concerns here! You are absolutely correct, a democracy cannot be built in 48 hours, but the opportunity for citizens to START building your own democracies can. We are aware this will take a bit of time to set up which is why we need YOUR help! What do you want to see right off the bat in your country or in a country you plan to join? Please keep in mind you will still qualify for AMCO's based on hitting your daily goals, buying and selling in the marketplace, transporting, and providing services. They will just be distributed by your countries elected official or via the new lottery approach! Stay tuned for more details on that! Thank you for your continued support and I can't wait to see what name you come up with!

I definitely agree with Luke. I have to express my situation, seeing his message points out what I am struggling.. I am jobless when I joined Empowr and believed it's mission and vision that it can help me to improve my financial status. My little savings has been brought to the marketplace, some adfee, transportation of goods, internet connections, time & effort. I received less...I have been bashed by some buyers because I can't send their products anymore or too late that it's been months ago and they will give poor rating on me.. I shop but most items were too expensive for its actual price and of course some were not being delivered with same reason as I do. My family already warned me to stop but I am already too attached here and still believing that I can tell them loudly I am right..
I can agree with Katherine that its getting complicated and I'm quite afraid where it leads, although the thought that citizen will handle this platform by country is appealing.

Sounds exciting and definitely thought provoking to have the absolute Freedom to either create or become a citizen of a country of my choice. For me, this brings forth a deep discernment of where I truly stand in my conviction to values such as peace, acceptance, tolerance, and unity. Wow!

Hi Darlene! Wow - your enthusiasm is contagious!! :) We really want to provide citizens with the freedom of choice, to begin making decisions that are best for themselves and the rest of the community. As JC points out - it is time that citizens and their countries making important decisions, rather than the empowr team. We look forward to seeing how these new countries develop, and how they make decisions that will only further grow and improve the empowr platform. It sounds like with your values of peace, acceptance, tolerance, and unity, you'll be an excellent citizen for whichever country you choose to join (or create!). Very exciting times ahead. Thank you for your support, Darlene!

I see in the blog bias and racism against the Islamic world
This is new on the site
This is also incompatible with democracy based on objectivity and neutrality
Women in Islam can get more freedom than any other faith
On the example example
The financial dowry of an Islamic woman is independent of the husband's full independence, whereas in some other faiths the financial dues of the wife are not independent
The wife in Islam keeps the name of his father's family and this reinforces his independence when Western societies get the nickname of the husband and erase his family's nickname.
A woman in Islam is allocated a compulsory husband's expense from the husband, even if she is a working woman
As for the ruling on women in Islam through dress and the rule that women are threatened in Islam, this is not impartiality, objectivity or exclusivity
There are many views in Islam about wearing women
Islam did not specify a specific garment

Hi Abd, we are extremely, extremely sorry if we have in any way offended you or your personal beliefs. That was in no way our intention. JC was only attempting to provide examples of how various countries or citizens may agree or disagree on certain things. We are well aware of our very diverse community - which is one of the greatest aspects of the platform. With diversity, empowr is able to spread its mission across the globe. Again, we sincerely apologize if we've offended you - this was not our intent. Thank you for your support, abd!

Hello : Mila Sorensen
I do not object to any person who is given a opinion in any faith, including my beliefs, Islam
But the opinion must be through a scientific study and deep in line with neutrality and impartiality
Talking about beliefs in general is a kind of excess sensitivity to some
So when you talk about the dogmas you should be following a deep study until you build a full view properly
There is no objection to talking about the doctrine of Islam, which is my faith, but it is objective and impartial
Thank you so much for attention

Dear elmanam,
Empowr is not wrong using your faith to draw some illustrations here. If this upset you, sorry, but I'll advise you to cheery up as your faith or religion has been made popular and given notice to. What about other ones that are not heard on empowr? That means they are living or doing right? No, not so, but just an illustration. We are all living on earth as the only human existence regardless of races. Thank you for letting known your heart and fellow Islamic mind here, empowr mean well to you dear.
As I always said and write, " Nothing is wrong using an illustrations, for they help promote histories and keep learning alive".

Hi Illya and Luke - as always, we appreciate your feedback and that you've chosen to take the time to communicate with us (wether it be positive or negative). Please remember that you are always paid for your successful sales in empowr earnings. Which you can then use to purchase products and services. AMCOs are of course also never guaranteed - they are an added bonus (when available) for those who have contributed the most to the needs of the economy. The other good news now, is that you can you earn by sharing (which requires zero actual selling of products), providing services, and soon - transporting! We are doing our very best to provide alternatives to merely selling products in the marketplace - we are trying to expand the different ways that citizens can earn. Now, we believe that its time to give our citizens MORE power, so that less of the very important decision making is left to the empowr team. This is why we are so excited about allowing citizens to create their own countries, which will be responsible for much of the important decision making. We realize that our citizens should be responsible for such decision making, as they are the reason for the platforms success, and ultimately they know what is best for our continued success. I hope this has provided you with more insight as to the reason behind empowr's recent decisions, and why we feel this is another step in the right direction. Thank you both! All the best.

Osvaldo Daniel Sanson Garrido

Democracy is very good for empowr, but it is time to act with respect to the economy because many of the citizens are registered and really the first thing they read and believe to understand is that it is paid at 90 days and empowr although they are not active paid Daily a percentage that although it is little in the 90 days reaches $ 1.00 and if we think that it is not one, are several thousands that really shows that they are not interested empowr, only in 90 days they can have money without working and then Of long time come to claim to the SC that can not realize Cash Out without even worrying about how empowr works.

I think it is time to think about this and take action, because most of us who are trying to fulfill and spend our time in this big business and thinking about the mission of empowr, we can not continue to affect us economically for these citizens.

Greetings to all

Delilah Jones

Osvaldo, thank you for sharing your concerns here! Please keep in mind, cash outs are based on your 90 day matured earnings MINUS any platform fees or ad credits utilized. The Country feature has been implemented to give citizens more control over a multitude of aspects on the platform, including but not limited to: AMCO distribution, billing mechanisms, language features, etc. It is our goal to ensure as much transparency as possible with our citizens and this seemed to be the best route to do so. empowr's mission has always been, and will continue to always be, "to enable hope, opportunity, and influence". Countries will ensure all citizens of empowr have a voice and a say in how things in their specific Country are run. Thank you for taking the time to comment here! Remember, if you have any ideas or features you will should be implemented with this new feature, please share them!

Wow.
What an announcement today. Empowr is getting better and better, and, with this change, I think we are going to see dramatic improvements -- both in functionality and in profits.
I don't feel as if I have been here long, but I have been here consistently, every day, since the middle of September 2016. I feel as if I have been very successful. As of today, I am 3rd on the list for monthly earnings in the United States. However, I know that I am nothing special. I haven't done anything other than work this website everyday. Each morning I get up before my children and spend 1 to 1.5 hours commenting on blogs, and liking and sharing other people's posts and list a product for sale. Around 4pm, I post half my allotted posts -- typically in the form of a picture with a nice blurb on top (and yes, often those pictures are of hot women in work-out gear). Then around 9 or 10pm, I post my remaining posts, and list a blog (so the blog spends almost 20 hours at the top of my feed). The blog is something cute or interesting or related to my picture posts that I pull off YouTube.
That system has allowed me to make modest AMCO's, around $10,000 to spend in the marketplace every month, and sky star -- all since September. Finally, as of today, my mission points are among the highest in the company -- nearly 40,000. These 'accomplishments' aren't really hard or special; however they have allowed me to see many of the areas for improvement. It is those areas of improvement that I will be focusing on as I search for a new country.
* My ideal country, those who list items for sale with no intention of actually selling the item will be removed as a citizen. This would have a small review period, but would be followed strictly.
* My ideal country would honor sellers with 90% of our allotted AMCO's. Our countries total AMCO would be divided amongst those who actually sold something (tangible items, services, transportation) in proportion to their actual sales.
* My ideal country would withhold approximately 10% of allotted AMCO's to focus on country specific technology improvements.
* My ideal country would focus on the marketplace as I believe this is the best component of Empowr. We would redesign the marketplace to add more search capabilities, automate and perfect the 'I Sold' and 'I bought' tabs, and ensure that citizens are able to cancel items that are sold out.
* Finally, my ideal country would allow funds to spend in marketplace to accrue immediately (albeit a smaller percentage) after upgrading so you do not need to wait until the end of your month to purchase items in the marketplace.
I do not have a huge interest in forming my own country, though I will if needed. I would be interested in running for an elected position in that country with the understanding that my platform would include the above bullet points.
Empowr is the MOST fantastic thing I have found on the internet. I love it and plan to be here a long time. I am excited about the potential of having a positive impact on its functionality.

Its citizens like yourself who understand the platform, and do their best to contribute, who are the reason the empowr platform will succeed. Its very impressive how you've thought through some important aspects that you'd like to see in your country - I'm positive that you'll be an excellent citizen in whichever country you choose to join! Or even - create! All the best, Will, and looking forward to see how you help to continuously improve the empowr platform. Thank you!

Well, If empowr can have more than 20 countries, it means that its no longer a community but a Planet and i am happy to be part of it.
But at the same time, i will like to drop 1 opinion here, As we are enjoying the fast growing of empowr economy, we should be careful on how we handle what brought the faster growing of that economy. because if we fail to handle it well, the economy might collapse.
E.g: The main reason the economy grew faster was the marketplace, and the main reason the marketplace is growing faster is because AMCO was promise to citizens.
So my guess is that, if the citizens fail to receive AMCO, they will definitely stop shipping item, and if there is a longer delay with AMCO, it will also affect the marketplace, and anything that affect the marketplace has affect the economy.

Greetings to all.

I am a little confused here, how could the marketplace improves the economy of empowr if citizens are using their matured earning only to purchase goods from other citizens, definitely there is a flaw here or misunderstanding!

24 months ago
Mila Sorensen

Hi Anthony :) You are correct that decisions made regarding the marketplace should always be handled with care, as empowr's economy is essentially its entire backbone. Without a functioning economy, empowr cannot succeed at its mission. Please keep in mind that when you have a successful sale, you are always awarded in empowr earnings. These earnings can be used to purchase more products and services of value. AMCOs have never been promised or gauranteed (after all, they completely depend on the cash that is left over and available to distribute). AMCOs are an added benefit in order to reward those who have contributed most to the economy. Determing the value of the contribution is completely dependent upon what is "needed" by the economy. As I'm sure you're aware, we've released a number of new features dedicated to taking much of the friction out of the marketplace. For example, we heard the community's frustrations regarding shipping, not having enough products to sell, etc. Because of these concerns, we introduced features such as sharing, services, and soon - transporting! We want to provide citizens with choices on how they earn and contribute. Also, keep in mind that AMCOs are not disappearing - but we will be giving countries the power to distribute them as they see fit. We love how passionate you are about ensuring that the empowr economy continues to grow. We're lucky to have you as an empowr citizen! All the best, Anthony! Thank you.

Wow! I find this so interesting and complicated at the same time in the beginning. Indeed democracy is fun but I agree it's really messy. However, there's a real beauty in forming country/countries according to our liking that nearly will satisfy most if not all citizens. But am just wondering how amazing our engineers will be working on different platforms of each country /100 countries. That's a lot of work I guess but truly this power given to citizens is just awesome. Am excited how this works. Really salute to these ideas. Empowr really rocks with so many things in the store for us.
Though we will have different country, working as synergy will make as one. Thank you JC, Pres. Brian for this new approach. Thank you Empowr and to my fellow citizens.

Interesting,

1-I am just curious of how much power and control does the creator of the country have? Can the creator of the country reject a request to join his/her country from a citizen? or it is 100% open to all citizens even if they don't agree to the terms and conditions of that country?

2-Clearly, the English language countries will have more members, does a country with a larger number of citizens be more powerful in term of economy and AMCO chances, or the population here is not important?

3- What are the downsides if someone decided not to join any country?

Thank you

The idea of dismembering the united Empovr into 100 new states reminds me of the collapse of the Soviet Union. There was a common economy that ceased to exist after the collapse of the general Union of Soviet Republics. And everything new was created with great difficulty, and for many years ... I sincerely wish that history would not repeat itself for Empor.
_________________________________________
Идея о расчленении единый Емповр на 100 новых государств, напоминает меня распад Советского Союза. Была общая экономика, которая перестала существовать после распада общего Союза Советских республик.

Mariam, thank you for sharing your concerns here. Please keep in mind we are opening it up to 100 countries but that does not mean that 100 countries will actually form. The 100 number was just a suggestion JC put out to start but this will increase or decrease as needed. Remember, in order to become a country, you will need to have enough Mission Points (how many times you hit your daily goal (all-time) and multiply that number by your all-time number of “item received” sales). So one person will not be able to form a Country, but she (or he) WILL be able to start a pre-country which people can choose to join or not. I hope this helps clarify and thank you for sharing your thoughts here! Also, if you have any needs or features you feel will be instrumental when Countries are launched please share them!

Interesting concept but I guess we will have to suck it and see if it works. I am here for the long game and only ever saw AMCO as a bonus so I will continue selling and sending products. If I get to start a country, this will be the part that will be most important. Out here in the South Pacific, our communities are very distant from each other with many rural citizens. Transporting and services are not so practical for us so selling and shipping would be number one priority for AMCO. Happy to be part of this experiment but feeling for the coaches right now who have to put this into words for their students

This decision has ripened long ago, and it probably is correct. In a small state it is easier for all to perform their functions. However, today's news began with the fact that there is not enough money to pay AMCO. Then there are the questions - if there was no money in a large community, where would they come from in 100 small ones? But the economy will not be able to develop so quickly if the money spent selling the goods will not be returned to the sellers. Due to what will there be new communities? Perhaps the answer will follow. We look forward to 8 hours and new explanations about the work in the new conditions.

24 months ago
Mila Sorensen

Hi Kobri, thank you for contributing your thoughts and questions. It's clear that you're really thinking these concepts through thoroughly. As JC points out, there is currently an extremely low amount of AMCOs to be distributed on a per-person cash out basis. Due to the community's recent marketplace success, the size of each individual citizen's cash out is shrinking, based on the current means of qualifying for AMCOs. This is why we are seeking a way to give citizens the power to decide how, and to whom, AMCOs are distributed. In order to distribute larger AMCOs (when available) more fairly, we believe that its best that localized countries have the ability to make distribution decisions. As JC points out, empowr will provide 97% of the cash back to the country, and will match the cash dollar for dollar. Another reminder, is that empowr is currently working on introducing a new lottery feature, which will also allow for the distribution of increased AMCO (more on this soon!). Also, remember that empowr sellers are always paid in empowr earnings for successful sales.
In order to give citizens other means of earning and contributing, we've recently introduced a number of new features - such as sharing, services, and soon, transporting! Oh, and don't forget - we're still hard at work lauching other features (i.e. the empowr app platform, the advertising feature, etc). as a means of growing the empowr economy even further. So if you'd like have a say in how future AMCOs are distributed, be sure to join the right country for you - or, create your own!! Thanks Kobri, and we appreciate your support! Thank you! :)

Thanks for sharing these wonderful ideas.
I have a question that the countries being in cyberspace only, can citizens create one of their choice, while themselves physically coming from different places of the planet, like if I want to create an "Islamic Republic", can people from all over the world join it or they must be from my native country?
A clarification: There is a mis-perception purposely spread by vested interests confusing Islamic dress code with women's rights and freedom. Firstly, such a dress code is not part of ONLY Islam but of all three Abramic religions i.e. Christianity, Judaism and Islam, then why single out Islam only. Christian Nuns follow same dress code, Jewish practicing families follow same dress code, even stricter than common Muslims (they use the same type of Burqa, which is common in Afghanistan). Secondly, Islam, besides giving much more rights to women than the so called modern world (it may not be confused with tribal traditions, which have nothing to do with Islamic teachings), considers the women much more precious than any of the worldly valuable things like diamonds or gold and you will never want your diamonds or gold lying in streets, How strange is the logic of so called modern world that men are considered free while wearing full clothes but for women the rule is opposite, they are considered free only if they show their charm to those who don't deserve to have a look on them. It will become a lengthy discussion to quote pre-Islamic condition of women and how Islam gave rights to them who at that time were buried alive at some places and were considered as animals at others. In short better to avoid referring such things in a manner the very same forces refer against whom this Empowr platform was launched i..e a minority sucking blood of whole humanity. A Muslim women not yet affected by propaganda of rights and freedom by Godless world will cover herself being in a Jungle where no one is watching her because she know Allah (God) is watching over her. We cover ourselves out of our own free will because we believe in Allah, His Books and His commands communicated to us through His Books & Messengers and when one accepts Islam either by birth or by conversion he/she accepts all of His commands including dress code. While those who are propagating so called women rights & freedom are practically bent on delivering rights & freedom to humanity through third world war which is surely going to be nuclear. What a pity.

Muhammad Aleem Rehmat

Thanks for clarification. I knew it would not be your intention to offend such a large part of your community, but pointed it out because it used the same language which is used in biased propaganda while such things are too sensitive to us as we (the followers of monotheistic religions) cannot accept any type of moderation in our religion in the name of liberalism or whatever as God-sent religions are already liberal, and something strange, which otherwise has nothing to do with real liberalism, cannot be inserted into these religions as they are already complete in all respects. There are no faults with God-sent religions, and it can never be, it is other way around i.e faults are with us, the people that we do not properly follow the commands of God and try to mould His commands to fit our worldly desires. Dress code for Muslim women is a law from God (The Creator) not from men (the creation), therefore it cannot be moderated or criticized by creation. There is a logical example about women's Islamic dress code law in a decision of an old case by a US Court. A man intentionally placed his briefcase on the road to see who picks it up and does not contact the owner (himself). Some people picked it up and returned but then one came, picked it up, the owner followed him and found out that he was not interested to return it. So he decided to go to court. The judges, after hearing the case, handed down much harsher punishment to the owner than the one who stole it, on multiple counts, one of them that the owner intentionally invited him to commit the crime. In Islam women are much much precious than any of the worldly wealth or diamonds, hence Islam wants us to adopt modesty to prevent crime and corruption on earth. Thanks
