The Directors Party

 direct markets - direct ownership - direct democracy - direct funding 

Subsidiarity

SUBSIDIARITY: an organizing principle that states matters ought to be handled by the smallest, lowest or least centralized competent authority.

Political decisions should be taken at a local level if possible, rather than by a central authority. (Wikipedia).

The Three Fronts

The political sector is known for parties that expound extremist ideologies on the left and right. The Directors Party is moderate, meaning it occupies the political center.

Economics has been divided into the capitalist and communism versions. Political parties have espoused one or the other of these positions. The Directors Party promotes direct ownership and direct markets.

The ecclesiastical sector is generally not addressed by political parties, we think this is a mistake. Religion is an important part of any right-thinking society.

The Directors Party is theologically Christian and ecclesiastical theocratic.

The Party is answerable to God.


 

Ecclessiastics:

The Directors Party if founded on: Eph. 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

People are not the problem; governments are.


 

Politics

The state is about the exercise of power and power creates the need for complex systems of control and this increases costs.

The Directors Party believes in the devolution of power down to the lowest possible level in conformity to the principle of subsidiarity.

The state originates in and must be re-established as the voice of the people.


 

Economics 

Capitalism is greed-driven. This works out reasonably well most of the time because it is not hard to convince people that being selfish is a good thing.

Communism accentuate empathy and a sense of charity. There are a lot of charitable people but not enough to outweigh the greed and selfishness of the majority. It does not take long for the more generous to become disillusioned at the selfishness of so many.  

It is not that communism is inherently wrong or unworkable, it is that too many greedy persons exist, and they will destroy anything that is open to being exploited.

Capitalism works better than communism because there are more greedy persons than people who will suffer a loss for the sake of the rest of us.

The success of capitalism over socialism is simply a matter of numbers. Capitalism reflects the nature of more persons than socialism does because capitalism paints a less rosy picture of human nature.

Directorism is an economics of the middle. It does not rely on empathy nor does it cater to greed.
