"We are proud to present you a new community project. Future wothout money!"
These were the words of the mayor of Nitra. He announced this as beign part of the project "For our people" which aims to make Nitra more self-sufficient and independent. So far we have seen succesfull projects to improve agriculture and energetic supply and information network of this fast growing town.
The idea is that for people living in Nitra, the products produced in the factories based in the Town (and near areas), will be free. At the beginning of each month every citizen would state their presumed needs of these products for the next moth through the internal communication network (which already provides means to vote in local elections for example). The complex software then calculates the data gathered from the citizens as well as statistic data based on consumption in the previous months and adjusts the production plan in the facilities accordingly. Of course the system is programmed to make a slight surplus in the production, so the people of Nitra would always have a safety net in case of misplanning.
"But what about the products, we cant make ourselves? Are we going to have to do without them?"
The local news reported asked a seemingly difficult question. It seems however, that mayor was ready for this kind of questions and explanied, that the citizens working in Nitra would still get their paychecks, so they can buy the things they want or need. The only thing that changes is the time they would need to work to provide for their families. As our readers know, fully automatic agricultural and industrial units arent any novelty in Nitra. Shops without the personal are a great hit and the services of town hall and some other institutes are accessible through the internal network.
"We ensured, that the basic needs of the citizens are met without the need of using money, so they could be free to work for whatever purpose they want and for however long they please and use their hard earned money to make their life worth living, not just livable. Thank you."
The mayor couldnt have ended the press conference better. I, myslef, hope the system catches on and I wish the citizens of Nitra to enjoy their new future. As for the rest of our country, let us follow the example.
