The Seven Pillars of Mutualism

1

For a free society to flourish, the exercise of individual liberty requires the acknowledgement of mutual responsibility.

2

Mutualism can thrive only when it is rooted in culture and choice, rather than laws and coercion; it should be encouraged as far as possible, and enforced only when necessary.

3

Legitimate economic and political power may derive from a variety of sources; what matters is how it is used, how it is checked and how far it is dispersed.

4

Markets are social institutions that should both offer rights to, and demand obligations from, those who seek financial gain.

5

Government has a duty to promote responsible market behaviour; to act as an effective umpire it should, as far as possible, avoid being a market competitor.

6

Mutualism requires an inclusive society in which all have equal access to the means to participate in it to the full.

7

Government has a duty to guarantee basic equality of access, but should, as far as possible, leave delivery to independent institutions exercising their mutual responsibility.
