Since life first emerged from primordial chaos, the quest for growth and empowerment has been at the center of what it means to be alive, from amoeba to humankind. As human societies have grown in complexity, so too have their systems of economy and governance. Yet what are economies and governments if not a means to satisfy humanity’s most basic needs? — from material necessities to security, community, achievement, and self-fulfillment.
These systems have evolved alongside human societies with the ostensible goal of increasing human flourishing and agency on both an individual and group level. Yet all it takes is a passing glance at the current global paradigm to realize that something is out of balance. Now, armed with the power of advanced cryptography, it’s time to take back our sovereignty from those who would seek to control us for their own ends.
We proclaim these truths as paramount to the Zulu Republic vision:
- That the geography of one’s birth should not determine their opportunities or potential in life.
That empowering individuals to pursue their dreams and cultivate their talents is how truly prosperous societies are built.
That physical boundaries are no longer the most efficient means of organizing human endeavor and cooperation.
That people have a right to control their own identities and financial destinies.
That throughout history, technological innovation has been a profound catalyst for social progress.
We hereby declare our independence from the status quo, to plant the seed for a collaborative, decentralized economy that works for everyone, anywhere in the world.
While decentralized technologies like blockchains are still in their infancy, we pledge to be at the forefront of this revolution, developing more perfect decentralized solutions to the benefit and empowerment of humanity.
