FreedomTrain | No Blocks, No Chains

Members of the Underground Railroad often used specific terms, based on the metaphor of the rail way. The Railroad was often known as the "Freedom Train” which headed towards "Heaven" or "the Promised Land"

FreedomTrain is a "Douglass Community Economics" and Governance service. The Douglass Community and Freedomtrain are socially predistributive (not merely correcting inequalities after the fact), and ecologically regenerative (not merely repairing the damage previously done). The FreedomTrain distributed ledger is integrated into Douglass Community

FreedomTrains Douglass Community Economic service will foster and enable democratic control and community ownership of technology. The Global Douglass community will have a role to play not only in the rate of technological development, but more importantly in its direction.
