SIXTH CORE PRINCIPLE

THE PRINCIPLE OF
SECURITY

All beings seek security in happiness, prosperity and well-being. No being in all of existence seeks suffering upon itself. The Human Individual, possessed of knowledge, wisdom and sovereignty is bestowed the responsibility to bring forth this security and freedom from suffering upon himself, his nation and the world.

The wise establish this security and protects the world through love composed of goodwill and compassion. Goodwill is the development, establishment and promotion of this security in happiness, prosperity and well-being. Compassion is the eradication of and guarding against suffering that hinders this security in happiness, prosperity and well-being.

What we do unto others we may expect in return. The wise, recognizing this, act with goodwill and compassion to establish security for themselves and the world.

In line with the above, Noble Nation establishes security for all Individuals through the following seven tier security model:

1st Tier

Spiritual Integrity of the people

The first tier of National Security protects the spiritual integrity of all Individuals in the Nation. Every Individual is enabled and encouraged to attain to the best of their abilities through education and practical mastery, forming a society of secure Individuals established in Wisdom, Love and Science.
This is the bedrock of a secure nation.

2nd Tier

Unity and concord of the people

The second tier of National Security is the unity of the Citizenry. This unity is rooted in this constitution based on Wisdom, Love and Science.  This unity is practically manifested through the institutions of noble society, economy and government and specifically through the direct democratic process of the assembly of Citizens. To safeguard this security, the Nation must ensure these institutions operate as intended by this constitution. The integrity and security of the National Information Framework is paramount, as these institutions of unity, concord and the engagement of the people operate on this platform.

3rd Tier

Economic Prosperity of the Nation

The third tier of National Security is the economic prosperity of the Individuals and the Nation. Economic wealth is the basis of all material strength. The frameworks and Markets of the Noble Economy are designed to create sustainable economic prosperity in union with a healthy and happy society. To safeguard this security, the Nation must ensure these institutions operate as intended by this constitution such that people are motivated and empowered to innovate and be enterprising  in economic activity.

4th Tier

National Service Delivery Hierarchy

The fourth tier of National Security is the National Service Delivery Hierarchy (which includes Emergency Services) that ensures timely, efficient and effective delivery of services to the People, enabling the Nation to run smoothly and efficiently. To safeguard this security, the Nation must ensure the National Service Delivery Hierarchy operates as intended by this constitution .

5th Tier

Friendship with Nations that Respect the Noble Principles

The fifth tier of National Security is good friendship. A Noble Nation is a trusted and dependable friend to all other nations. Extending a hand of support in noble endeavor, providing assistance whenever in need and receptive to requests for help. This friendly international cooperation will take place as a matter of course in line with regulatory guidelines up to the 5th tier of National Security. Assistance at the 6th and 7th tiers of National Security can be offered or requested only with the authorization of the Citizen’s Assembly. To safeguard this tier of security, the Nation must engage in this cooperation, maintaining the highest honor and dignity, as stipulated in this constitution.

6th Tier

Intelligence

The sixth tier of National Security is the encompassing awareness and knowledge of the Nations environment that has a bearing on the Nation’s security and well-being in line with wisdom-love-science. Intelligence agencies are fully subject to Root Law except with a case by case consent of the council of elders having determined a root law threat to the Nation under the Third Core Principle.

7th Tier

Military Defense Forces

The seventh tier of National Security is the Readiness of Defense Systems to protect the Nation from external attack. While a Noble Nations has no enemies within or without and seek the well-being of all, there unfortunately are in this world foolish, depraved and deluded actors who wish to harm those who are harmless. Where all other tiers of security have failed to convince these actors out of their delusions, and they attempt to harm the noble nation, this tier shall activate only as a last resort.

The Nation may never attack pre-emptively; may never pursue a retreating enemy with intent to destroy; may not do these things even by proxy. In conflict, the Nation must uphold honor and human dignity and consider the protection of human life as its ultimate duty.

The primary focus of the military defense forces shall be to develop and maintain readiness of defensive technologies that can neutralize every known offensive weapon, technology and tactic. 

The first four tiers are the internal tiers and the next three tiers are the external tiers. As long as the internal tiers are healthy and strong, the Nation cannot fall. If the internal tiers are weak, the Nation is as though fallen, no matter how strong the external tiers may be.

Commentary

  1. The purpose of the external tiers is to absorb and protect the internal tiers from acute attacks from external forces. But the internal security tiers of the Nation should be so strong and glorious, that even when standing alone, it may stand firm and composed, even in the mightiest of onslaughts.

  2. Total transparency of government activity while ensuring privacy and freedoms of Individuals is essential for all the tiers to operate effectively. This will eliminate room for abuse or corruption in the system, permitting all good people to act with unity and concord.

  3. The NIF must maintained in an open and transparent manner where bugs and vulnerabilities are rapidly identified and quickly patched by a large and open community of developers. The NIF must be highly fault tolerant and distributed. 

  4. History has shown that the greatest danger to economic prosperity is the greedy efforts of a foolish few to pervert the economic institutions for their profit. The next gravest danger to economic prosperity is the malaise and demotivation of the people in engaging in vibrant and innovative economic activity. The Noble Economy is designed to avoid both these.
