LIBERTY: whereby we secure the full spectrum of human rights – political, civil, economic, social and cultural – against violation or infringement, particularly by unchecked corporate power and unjust governments; where we preserve the public availability of common spaces and other resources, using free and open technologies to promote the free flow of ideas and information.
PEOPLE POWER: whereby everyone’s voice is heard, and no one is marginalized; where decision-making, in every form and at every level, exists by the will of the people, and neither wealth nor history alone will justify power.
PEOPLE BEFORE PROFIT: whereby we value human dignity and needs over monetary gain, elevating them to a place of primary importance; among these are the rights to meaningful and/or fairly-rewarded work; a decent home; abundant sources of clean air, pure water and natural, nutritious food supplies; and free, comprehensive healthcare and education.
FAIRNESS: whereby we call on all who enjoy society’s benefits to accept their share of society’s responsibilities; where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive and power is shared equitably by all so that no one is allowed to exploit, oppress or enslave another.
EQUALITY: whereby we reject all forms of individual, systemic and institutionalized discrimination and oppression, on any basis, including but not limited to race, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, national origin, nationality, ethnicity or economic standing.
JUSTICE: whereby transparent and accountable social, political, legal and economic systems work to benefit all, not just a privileged few; these systems are restructured or replaced when they fail to do so.
ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP: whereby the wealth of our economy emerges from the health of our environment, and therefore all societal activities are conducted with respect, humane treatment and foresight to ensure that all life is sustainable and that the natural world has room to flourish, now and for future generations.
PEACE: whereby non-violence is aspired to as a way of life, and we resolve to live together in harmony and celebrate principles of compassion, appreciation and respect for diversity and differing views.
