Here’s a thought experiment: What is the business model of Radix Fidem?
As a matter of context, we don’t have a profit model because it works as a non-profit, a totally unregistered charity. That’s our effect in the business climate, a purely pragmatic issue in the context. But that’s just a small part of the larger consideration of the who, what, when, where, why and how. It ends up being more of a contrast than a comparison.
The first issue is introducing an element absent from all other businesses we know about: This is all about family. Our whole consideration is feudalism, and frankly it views people as the ultimate store of value. In that sense, it’s ownership of people, but the ownership is not any of ours. We are an agency of the ultimate authority of God as owner of all Creation. Still, the most challenging concept is that such ownership of humans is both morally good and necessary. You either embrace it or don’t participate.
So the fundamental business model is adding people to the treasury. We are seeking to expand the effective ownership of souls, growing a larger domain of mobile assets. This assumes a certain growth in attached physical assets, but we treat that as a variable after the fact. It’s not a matter of negotiation at all. The only deal we make is the person; people are the product of our business process.
It’s entirely voluntary, and we as agents treat it as fundamentally transient. Relative permanence is a matter of product development; it’s an indicator of maturity. For example, when an asset is moved, a mature asset will voluntarily work to reduce the shock of departure. The ultimate value is not in the physical proximity and direct contributions to the work, but in the indirect contribution of warmth and care. While warmth and care produce measurable results, there are no set guidelines for the thing itself. Each member evaluates it subjectively for the purpose of their own mission within the business.
This brings us to the issue of brand promotion. Obviously this rests entirely on what prospects can observe. It has to be a better choice in the market, but we never forget how it appears to those who aren’t part of our operation. A part of our branding is this warmth and care under the banner of “love.” It’s a love for all of Creation. While humans are the pinnacle of our business, a critical element in this love is placing people properly into the context of Creation as a whole. This is the definition of “love” for us.
We tend to organize this branding activity under the structure of Biblical Law. We define Biblical Law in many different ways, but as a part of branding within a business plan, it’s a matter of breathing life and substance into moral character. As we understand it, this is the whole essence of product development.
Product development is primarily the responsibility of the product. This returns us to the matter of voluntary participation. Nobody else is going to make it happen; the most we can do is put the next step within reach. Only you can make the move. Our currency of exchange internally is sacrificial compassion.
Welcome to the family.
