FINANCING THE SYSTEM AND THE BEST WAY TO CREATE THE BASE OF
<1>There will be three sources of income for
the judiciary, administrative, and Elder bodies: <2>one from
the contributions of the twelve people selection; a second from
gifts from the believers; and the third through matching funds from
<3>The best way for the twelve people to be
the base of the twelve-people-selective system is that they all live
in a close area together, and if possible even in a large building
as a small community. <4>Therefore they would be able to
create strong bonds, progress together, do spiritual practices as a
group and be a comfort, strength, and protection, etc, for one
<5>Each individual or couple in these small
communities would give 10% (tithe) or more of their income to the
system which should be sent to the regional control financial
agencies to be used for the expenses of the system.
<6>The other financial arrangements in each
community depend upon the people involved. <7>One way to do
this is to identify the collective expenses and finance them through
contributions by all in the community. This can include
administrative expenses, etc., of the community.
<8>Another way is to surrender a fixed
percentage of each person's income or a fixed amount to be used for
community expenses. <9>The idea is that everyone shares in
making the community become a vital, organic unit. This of course
needs much compassion, understanding, sharing, etc. <10>However,
no one should become a burden on the community and/or system.
<11>Such elements should be supported with the minimum.
<12>If the twelve people are not living in a
community together, each individual should send at least ten percent
(10%) to the central financial agencies and support other collective
expenses of the community, such as expenses for the administration
of the group, etc.
<13>However, it is recommended that the
twelve people as the base live together in housing close by each
other, <14>or even use the recommended house which will be
explained in the next section (or something similar) so that they
can be close together physically, mentally, and spiritually.
<15>Also those who are not participating in
the twelve people as base, but are willing to support the cause of
the Lord and His System, should give at least ten percent (10%) of
their income (tithes) to the system, to be used to finance it.
<16>Another source of income for the system
will be gifts, direct contributions, donations, etc., to the system.
<17>These funds and the tithes, of course, will be tax
<18>The tithes (10%) given to the system are
a purifier of one's wealth. They are given as a thanksgiving for His
Kingdom and for the tranquility, justice, etc, which it brings.
<19>Thanksgiving is the first Law.
<20>If the system did not represent
God and became corrupt,
people can withdraw even this, so the system will collapse. However,
they can continue the communities and communication between them
until another true Hierarchy would emerge.
<21>There will also be a matching fund as a
percentage of the money generated in this fashion in each region
(from the people of the base and the tithes), by the tax money which
will be collected from the masses for the services that will be
provided by the government for them.
<22>If the money collected from the first two
sources (the twelve-base and tithes) does not seem sufficient for
the expenses for these bodies, then from the tax collected from the
masses, up to one hundred percent (100%) can be taken to double the
income of these bodies and for their expenses. <23>But this
matching money should never exceed the hundred percent (100%) limit.
<24>However, if the money collected from
tithes (also donations, etc.) was sufficient, no matching fund is
required or at least not one hundred percent. <25>Also this
matching fund can be used as an economical tool to inject or
withdraw money from the economy in order to control it.
<26>The reason for only 100% matching fund is
that the judicial and administrative bodies should be so respected
and trusted that people should be willing to join and support the
system as much as possible only through the first two sources of
income (twelve base and tithes).
<27>So if they became corrupt, these bodies
would not be able to use unlimited amounts of taxpayers' money and
continue their corrupt ways.
<28>When people do not have trust in the system any longer,
they will not support it and the first two sources of income will
decline. This will force the bank of matching funds to go down also.
So it will force the system either to correct itself or collapse,
then a new system will be created.
<29>From the income which is generated in
each region as described above, thirty percent (30%) will be sent to
the world body from each region, and seventy percent (70%) will be
used for regional expenses.
<30>Ten percent (tithes) of the money
generated in the world level government will be given to the world
Eldest to be used for his expenses and also for the expenses of the
Elders in the world level. <31>This is also true in the
regional level: ten percent of the disposable income -- after thirty
percent (30%) is sent to the world government, or the remaining
seventy percent (70%) -- will be dedicated to the
Elders and will be given
to the Eldest to be used for his expenses and that of the
<32>It is the Eldest (both regional and
worldwide) who has complete control over this money. Indeed it can
be said they should be given a kingly attribute and power, and this
money should be used to maintain their status.
<33>Of course, as it was described,
Elders should influence the system indirectly and the Eldest
acts as the Highest symbol as a
<34>The rest of the income in both the world
and regional levels -- the ninety percent (90%) -- will be used for
the administrative and judiciary bodies which include the
Temples and community centers. <35>The maintenance
and administration of the
community centers will be by the communities,
Brahmins (such as renunciates), and judiciary bodies. But the
administrative body would channel its
energy more toward the
administration of worldly matters.
<36>The masses will be taxed for the services
they require from the government, <37>and also the salaries
and financial requirements for maintaining and operating the Senate
(the House of Representatives) should be paid by the taxpayers.
<38>The financing of the candidates who run
for office through vote will be paid half by contribution from the
people to the candidates and the other half as a matching fund from
taxes by the government. Of course a ceiling can be put on how much
a candidate can spend.
