If it is, someone forgot to tell me!
I don’t blame people who think Copiosis is a scam. After all, our economy has conditioned all of us to beware of things that sound too good to be true. I learned this lesson as a kid watching The Brady Bunch. What’s more, the way status-quo economies work, it’s very easy for scammers to take money from us against our will. It’s been done at nearly every level. It has left some people broke and bankrupt their lives ruined. It has left others merely angry or feeling had.
But just because all the answers to questions about Copiosis aren’t available on our website doesn’t mean we’re a scam. What we are is a small but increasing number of people who realize – like many people – that the world, the species that live here, and the human civilization en toto are in trouble. Instead of trying to assign blame, moan about the troubles we’re all facing or giving up to some inevitable collapse, instead of cataloguing the nature of those troubles (a lot of people have already done that), instead of attacking the right or the left, the 1 percent or shadow groups of elites running conspiracies, we’ve chosen to create and promote an alternative system + a viable transition strategy that actually will accomplish all the things we claim.
Copiosis is a company. It is a company named after our innovation, the post-scarcity Copiosis Economic model. Our innovation is a practical approach to realizing the dream of the gift economy, the holy grail depicted in many of our best science fiction stories. But golly folks! We’ve only been a formed company since July 4, 2013! That’s not very long. In that time though we have caught the attention of people in 27 different countries.
We’re making progress. But the best is ahead of us. I’m committed to making the reality Copiosis promises the global reality. It’s normal for people to think something too good to be true is a scam. I don’t blame people for initially thinking so. Keep an open mind though and you’ll see. Just like all rules, there are exceptions.
