International Module of Communication and Action
Inventory of the means of exchanges in the alternative networks
The wild economic universalization of the groups of individuals gathered to be opposed to the drifts generated by ultra-liberalism. The fight is organized everywhere for reasons and with objectives often rather different. This mosaic of international dispute undergoes the mocking remarks of the states and the media whose objective is to minimize the range of action of these groups. In this being useful for model of the Taylorism set up since many years by the capitalist system the media try to reduce the range of the dispute by comparing it to a disorganized and not very effective anarchistic model.
If it is true that the actions carried out by these groups do not have strong impacts on the market economy, their force precisely lies in the flexibility of their structure and the impact which they impose on the individual conscience through the media aspect their actions.
New communication and information technologies made it possible to these militants to set up means of diffusion and exchanges on a planetary scale to make known their actions and to help them in the organization of the demonstrations. Internet sites devoted to these forms of disputes are compost which supports the emergence of the ideas, which allows the synergy of the knowledge to make individual and collective, makes it possible to think a new form of total social relation. In addition to the sites specific to each movement protestor, there are gates which allow: to reach quickly the various sets of themes of each group, to constitute data bases, to exchange by the means of the forums.
One sees well for these example that the dispute begins again on its account by diverting them the models and the tools thought by the capitalist model. It however misses in the structuring of its contacts towards outside an organisational system which allows compatibility between groups the objectives different and yet complementary, this report justifies the proposal for a diagram of reflexion and installation of a modular organization whose objective is to optimize the communication and the action between various nebulas of the movements protestors.
Mica like modular model of design
A coherent structure based on a simple mathematical model is enough to build a complex and flexible system at the same time. It has the advantages of requiring only one moderate adaptation to the operating mode of each group while supporting multiple mode of organization which can constantly to be composed and of breaking up according to the cases. It is based on the observation of natural phenomena and it takes again the principles of them. The element which is used here as model is the mica a component of the granite.
The granite which constitutes most of the lithosphere is present on all the continents it is the material common to all the companies. Its molecular composition consists of feldspar, mica and quartz. The mica is him even made up of a quartz crystal assembly. Quartz (If, O4) for its part is symbolized by a tetrahedron whose each point consists of an atom oxygenates, the heart is a silica atom.
If one compares each protestor group with a quartz molecule, then the assembly of the various groups to form the mica little. So that this alchemy is possible it is necessary that each organization can reflect and propose a diagram compatible with the structure of quartz.
Modeling could take this form:
The silica core represents the entity in its organization and its objectives.
The first of the point represents the sphere of its collective know-how
The second know-how of the individuals which constitutes the collective
The third experiments and reflexions carried out by the group
The sphere of the last point represents a link tended towards the other organizations
If each structure can set up this type of module, then the construction of the M.I.C.A. will be made possible.
MICA like social organic form
This project does not plan to take again the rigid structure of the mica such as it exists in the mineral world, but to adapt it to create a flexible structure with the liking of the needs present or to come. In this direction the MICA could be compared with a play of Lego which makes it possible starting from a single brick model to create all the combinations of forms with a flexibility of déconstruction and astonishing rebuilding. The MICA will be then closer to an organic form than of its initial form mineral. It will in particular make it possible to create synergies by creating bridges between the organizations for specific or longer-term actions, to cross knowledge and competences, to organize the formation to compare the experiments? but also to consolidate the effectiveness of the existing structures in particular the data bases Internet. The MICA by its flexibility of adaptation to the constraints will be a form of organic life made up of myriade of individuals who will have the will of mutualiser their knowledge to make and knowledge-to be to them, without other constraint that those which they will have chosen.
It could be desirable to build or adapt a gate Internet whose missions would be to centralize and mutualiser the information of all the groups which will have chosen the MICA like constitutive model in order to facilitate the access and the exchange. To constitute a single place of access to all the causes and all the forms of fight which they are adherent or not with the principle of the MICA.
Operation of the MICA
The gate will be able to facilitate the request and the answers suitable of the groups. One can imagine for example, a collective located in a distant geographical area with financial means the weak one and which wishes to be equipped in computer equipement and Internet site, to call upon the existing competences indexed in the base of data. It will then be enough for them to contact the structures which have according to the diagram of the quartz crystal the knowledge to make individual or collectives necessary for: the creation of site, the recovery of old computers, financial means to ensure transport, formation with the tools.
In the same way the sphere of the experiments will be able made profitable by and for all. It will allow mutualiser the experiments, to adapt new behaviors, to reinforce the means of actions.
This proposal is prone to evolution, it is only one outline of a principle of organization to come to reinforce the effectiveness of the means of action and the visibility of all the movements protestors and citizens. It does not have the aim of calling into question the internal organization and the motivations of each group, but quite to the contrary to support the mutualisation of competences and creative energies of each one.
