This is the most political open source project I've seen in a while. I love the idea that it's designed to sit inside a progressive society where we all agree we have a social contract to the state. That is very different to a lot of similar efforts, and at the very least it's an important part of the discussion.

Right now it's vaporware, but I'm very interested in its release. I'd love to help give it a friendly face and integrate it with existing open source social platforms, to make it easier to send and receive money regardless of your technical ability.

Where is this social contract? What are its terms and where is my signature?

In the case of modern countries: The contract is the law + the Constitution (or your local equivalent if not in the US) and your signature is living in and benefiting from the nation/society you live in.
