Firewood Exchange

Exchanges are bible-based economic modules or markets. Exchanges are designed to combat and overcome liberalism and its social costs by linking our ways of living with the instructions in Scripture. Rationalists believe this is a specifically conservative approach to solving our social problems.  Rational Exchanges are a Christian way to defeat the agenda and social costs of liberalism. Liberalism is the main vehicle through which statists promote their globalist and antichrist world view.

It is best to familiarize yourself first with the Basic Exchange structure if you have not already done so. A Firewood Exchange is the basic Exchange with an accent on the provision of firewood using the  economic model provided by Scripture. A Firewood Exchange is a specialized organization created as a way to provide members with low cost high quality firewood. However, the process serves to promote the reliability and truth of Scripture.

The Firewood Exchange functions as a Democracy. Power therefore remains at the base of the organization. To shift power upwards is to create social costs.

The woodlot from which the firewood is obtained is preferentially owned by the Firewood Exchange. The users of firewood are paid by the Exchange for all work done. They also own the Exchange. If the users of firewood do not replenish the trees they cut to supply them with firewood they will either need to buy a new woodlot or be without their own source of firewood. There is, ergo, no benefit to not charging sufficient value for the firewood that permits the maintainence of the supply. Ergo, we have carbon neutrality without the need for government intervention. Using the Exchange model there is no benefit to creating social costs, that is costs that the community will pay later. The community creating the costs is the community that will ultimately pay the costs.

An economy is ultimately a closed ecosystem. Inputs must equal outputs. If we are taking wealth from the planet we need to restore this in some way. We must think of our political jurisdiction as an island. Those in the jurisdiction trade with other jurisdictions but the focus must be on maintaining the health and integrity of the local jurisdiction.

An Exchange can be viewed as an isolated market or a business engaging inhouse transfers. It makes no sense for a business to create a shoddy product or service for a department. If one department needs a machine to produce the products it sells it make no sense for a manufacturing arm to produce the machine in such a poor way that the machine does not work as it ought and suffers multiple breakdowns. This holds true for an  Exchange. Business activity is similar to in-house transfers within a conventional business.

Social costs are what businesses call an externalized costs. These are costs created by the production produces but not contained in the price of the products or services sold, thus the uncovered cost accrues to the account of society and future generations. This only makes sense within the context of a social agenda. The formation and pursuance of social agendas is the hallmark of liberalism. Exchanges are a targeted way of combatting the social agenda of liberalism.
