🗳️ Policy Votes (beta)
Policy Votes are a dynamic way for shareholders to update my opinions, policies, and principles with an ‘always on’ voting system. This initial test of the idea uses the same voting framework but with an extended "always on" voting period.
My position on cryptocurrency was put to a vote in September of 2019 and it was decided I would be "Interested: KmikeyM is fascinated by the promise of crypto but has a wait and see approach regarding the implementation because involvement requires a high technical understanding and few safeguards. He would not advise anyone to invest more than a token amount."
A lot has changed since then and using Policy Votes we can have a more adaptable view on the issue.
[Pioneering] KmikeyM is a crypto advocate and believes that the tokenization of physical and digital assets will be the gateway to unlocking new microcosms of value for citizens everywhere. KmikeyM looks forward to exploring options for a working crypto solution to his own market.
[Positive] KmikeyM is a crypto enthusiast and believes cryptocurrency is an exciting new wave of financial innovation. He holds a number of positions in various projects and expects crypto investing will outperform the regular markets.
[Hopeful] KmikeyM is optimistic about crypto and enjoys collecting and holding tokens as a way to participate. He encourages people to get involved and believes the crypto “killer app” is just around the corner.
[Greedy] KmikeyM feels like investing in cryptocurrency can be a lucrative opportunity, but does not believe crypto is a long lasting mainstream happening. KmikeyM will invest to make profit, but holds no ideological belief about the technology.
[Interested] KmikeyM is fascinated by the promise of crypto but has a wait and see approach regarding the implementation because involvement requires a high technical understanding and few safeguards. He would not advise anyone to invest more than a token amount.
[Skeptical] KmikeyM believes that crypto is an interesting idea, but is skeptical of mainstream adoption and wouldn’t advise participation beyond entertainment purposes.
[Negative] KmikeyM sees crypto enthusiasm as another in a long line of technical utopian dreams of Ayn Randian thinkers who will no doubt end up very rich causing great harm to society.
[Anti] KmikeyM sees crypto as nothing but a form of unregulated gambling designed by swindlers and con artists as another way to separate a fool from their money.
In 2019 the shareholders approved my use of psychedelics with 82% support.
The question I posed then remains the same: Are the potential advantages of taking psychedelics beneficial enough to overcome the low likelihood of getting caught breaking the law? Put another way, can psychedelics and capitalism coexist?
Super Hero Movies
In 2017 the shareholders decided I should not watch "superhero movies" (or television). Since then there some testing of different ways for shareholders to guide my media diet, but the concept of restricting the "junk food" of movies and TV still makes sense.
Using Policy Votes we can now include a few different ways to restrict or control the consumption.
No Super Hero Movies or TV: Don't watch any of them. It's all garbage.
Watch ALL Super Hero Movies: This is the "smoke the whole pack" strategy. Watch EVERYTHING and see what happens.
Watch Whatever You Want: No shareholder control. Just watch what you like.
One Exception Per Year: Choose wisely and pick one per year to watch.
Only If They Win Awards: If they win some (major) award then fine, they have proved some merit.
Only If You Know Them: Living in LA you're going to meet some sound or VFX person (or become best friends with Paul Rudd) and it will be weird to not watch what they helped make.
Note: For simplicity sake we're including all movies and television under the Marvel or DC banner in this policy. Indie publishers are excluded.
