What's in a Name? Commonwealth vs. Equity Union

Think of transitioning towards equality of "ownership" as a transition strategy and a compromise strategy, an olive branch held to those who consider themselves workers who have earned their property from hard, dangerous, smart, and/or risky WORK (I do not include investment risk as work).

Eventually, they/we may accept the concept of "usership" (i.e. the completely unselfish, unqualified, sharing of everything by everybuddy). That's the goal, right. If and when we get there, we will get to the moneyless economy, as well. No?

We're not writing about "soup kitchen" and OxFam type handouts, we are talking about genuine equality with respect to quality of life considerations.

With respect to the term common wealth, I'd like to point out that it has been reported to me that the great majority of the people on the planet live in poverty and the current prognosis is not promising.

We need an equity union before we can reach common wealth.

How do those terms and concepts translate into other languages?

World Unity!
