Entries are being accepted for the Fair Share of the Common Heritage Award. Entries should be original contributions focused on the Fair Share of the Common Heritage, also referred to as Fair Share Capitalism. Submissions should develop theory or propose activism to advance the Fair Share of the Common Heritage Wealth and the public’s understanding of it. Creative works such as plays, poetry, novellas; art and non-fiction works are welcomed. Regardless of genre, entries need to explain how the Common Heritage Wealth could be democratically controlled for the common good and how the income from the Common Heritage Wealth could be fairly distributed to humankind and every sentient being.
The Fair Share of the Common Heritage mission says, “Every sentient being, human and non-human, has a right to a Fair Share of the income derived from the Common Heritage Wealth.” This wealth has two sources: the earth’s natural resources, land surfaces, sub-surface minerals and fuels, water and air, – indeed the entire physical environment. Secondly, the wealth includes humankind’s accumulated cultural knowledge, inventions, cyberspace and the airwaves, all of which should be democratically controlled for the common good.
Entries should explain or creatively demonstrate ways to accomplish the fair sharing of the income from the Common Heritage Wealth.
More information about the Fair Share of the Common Heritage is on the web at www. Fair Share CommonHeritage.org.
