An Illustrated Guide to Life-Grounding Elinor Ostrom’s Principles of Managing a (Civil) Commons with Planetary and Population Health Life-Value Guiding Principles

http://www.onthecommons.org/magazine/elinor-ostroms-8-principles-managing-commmons

Elinor Ostrom’s 8 polycentric, subsidiarity, hierarchical, coherently-inclusive rule-making and governance-principles can be life-grounded and connected to planetary and population health via life-value guided-principles and strategies as illustrated here.

8 Principles for Managing a Commons

  1. Define clear group boundaries.

(System/Environment Boundaries) – Prerequisite for any rule-making system-design formulation be they thermodynamics / infodynamics / life-value-dynamics

  1. Match rules governing use of common goods to local needs and conditions.

(Grounding) – Prerequisite for the Integral world approach

  1. Ensure that those affected by the rules can participate in modifying the rules.

(Skin in the Game) – Prerequisite of accountability (A good governance rule)

  1. Make sure the rule-making rights of community members are respected by outside authorities.

(Sovereignty/Functional Autonomy) – Prerequisite of non-interference by those with no skin in the game/absentee owners etc

  1. Develop a system, carried out by community members, for monitoring members’ behavior.

(Transparency) – Another good governance principle, builds trust capital and social cohesion

  1. Use graduated sanctions for rule violators.

(Prosocial Punishment) – Opens choice spaces for learning from mistakes/tough love/rough and tumble play/reconnection/reintegration – to err is human, to forgive is divine)

  1. Provide accessible, low-cost means for dispute resolution.

(Knowledge evolution) – Use tension and conflicts in co-creative innovative ways to find solutions to unpredictable and uncontrollable human problems and challenges

  1. Build responsibility for governing the common resource in nested tiers from the lowest level up to the entire interconnected system.

(Principle of subsidiarity) – polycentric fractal holarchic governance inclusion of the above 7 principles – LIFE-NEEDS GROUNDED BOTTOM/UP AND LIFE-VALUED KNOWLEDGE TOP-DOWN

Primordial, Primary, Secondary, Tertiary and Quaternary -> Collective Life Capital Protection/Prevention/Rehabilitation Framework [Thanks to Prof John McMurtry for helping to crystallize the understanding below in CAPS]

  • Primordial Life Prevention/Protection – Life-grounded Public Sovereign Monetary System  – > SOVEREIGN LIFE-VALUE MONETARY SYSTEM – LVMS? with Rule of Life-Protective Laws to address LIFE-VALUE spending and taxing and regulations
  • Primary Life Prevention/Protection – Life-Coherent Public Knowledge
  • Secondary and Tertiary Protections – Monitoring and evaluation TO INTERVENE AND REMEDY FOR OUTCOME OF PATIENT/COMMUNITY LIFE CAPACITY GAIN AS TREATMENT DECIDER
  • Quaternary Prevention – Monitoring and surveillance to ensure no EXTERNAL capture OR INEFFICIENT use of LIFE OR MEDICAL resources WITH information ON ALL PROCEDURES publicly available in transparent EXPLANATION IN DEVELOPING QUESTION-ANSWER FORM
