The KAG Public Interface
We're presently seeking to fund the setting up and operation of the KAG Public Interface, without which The Kingdom of the Almighty God (KAG) cannot become a reality. This interface will be based largely on some ground-breaking but unpublished portions of my revelation. It will have the following 8 features among many others:
[Example Feature One]
**A global kingdom riding on an online social administration structure, made up of communities, Cluscomms, Unicomms, and a global echelon. This structure is intended to gradually move humanity away from the failed concept of political rulership, and to instead embrace social administration. Once this fundraising effort concludes, we will register the kingdom as a company-limited-by-guarantee and operate in strategic stealth until the end of 2024, when we also plan to reveal and bring on board the Emperor, who will guide the kingdom into its next growth phase, which will include acquiring some sovereign land for the future KAG HQs.
"The backbone of the kingdom was its communities—though without firm physical boundaries, the communities were geographically grounded. Kingdom citizens could freely migrate to a new community, but an individual could not be a member of more than one community. Upon joining the kingdom, many changed their names, but the kingdom carefully recorded their former names."
"In the beginning, I saw a welcome link posted on the personal accounts of those not registered with a community, and it read, 'Join a KAG community or propose one.' The kingdom had mapped out the geographic locations of a great number of 'Clustered Communities' beforehand, many of them matching our existing county boundaries. As citizens joined a community, they were asked to suggest the name of the 'Clustered Community', or Cluscomm, their base community should belong to."
"As noted above, Cluscomms fell roughly along today's county boundaries, but since the communities themselves had no physical boundaries, the larger units they formed, for instance Cluscomms, would equally not have had fixed physical boundaries. Nonetheless, the present-day county and state boundaries were found useful for administrative purposes."
"As with the Cluscomms, the kingdom had mapped out an initial network of 'Unified Communities', or Unicomms. As more and more communities formed, this network kept evolving until the kingdom gained stable form. A Unicomm was essentially a KAG state, but the term 'state' was not used at any time during the kingdom's lifetime."
"Communities falling fully or partially within an area of significant urbanisation got the opportunity to contribute to the choosing of a city 'admin', who took care of the city's social services and physical infrastructure, using the revenue raised from local taxation and the funds received from the upper levels of the kingdom administration. The city 'admins' had no fixed tenures: they took up and left office in a manner identical to the other 'admins', as described further below."
"While the Cluscomms coordinated inter-community development and social connectivity, the Unicomms incorporated all the communities, cities, and Cluscomms within their administrative boundaries, and blended them into the kingdom's socio-economic infrastructure. The Unicomms also policed the areas which did not have city police units."
"As the kingdom message spread around the world, those designated as the kingdom 'founders' gathered and signed a document, and the young tree (representing the kingdom currency) was planted on a parcel of sovereign land that was acquired from an existing country via treaty. This enabled the kingdom to establish an example or model kingdom community and a small kingdom city, with its own police force, 'City Hall' as described further below, a mailing system, and car license plates. The other amazing distinguishables included the provision of internet as a social service and the popularisation of a global driver's license, which also served as a complete identification card. Now, the other kingdom communities had an example to follow. The kingdom's reserve bank building was prominent on this sovereign land though most transactions and bank announcements were made online. The commercial bank system had been gutted and renewed so it could line up with the kingdom's reserve bank. Many desired to be residents of this small city, not only because of their love for the kingdom, but also because of the city's liveability and unique features and facilities, which made it conducive for the transformation of their businesses. I also saw many people visiting for tourism, including what might be called technology tourism."
"Even before manufacturing and producing were globally standardised, the small city popularised the 'Made in the KAG' slogan."
"Many societies were eager to join the kingdom, and there was no exclusion like we have today whereby deserving cases have been denied statehood on a whim, from Somaliland, Western Sahara, Crimea, to Washington, DC."
[Example Feature Two]
**The interface's anchor feature, kBase, where kingdom communities will form up, and where Cluscomms and Unicomms will become a reality. kBase will bring together people from a given locality (say hommies) into a kingdom community. The sizes of communities will be expected to differ significantly and to keep changing over time, particularly as people begin to migrate around the world more easily.
"The interface's 'Kingdom Expectations' (think Community Standards) forbid people from forming exclusive communities, for example based on gender, race, ethnicity, heritage, education, age, or socio-economic status: membership to a community was based only on one consideration—the location of a citizen's habitual residence."
"The members of a given community identified the challenges facing them and discussed possible solutions, escalating those challenges which could not be addressed at the community level to the Cluscomm, Unicomm, or KAG level. Community members also came together effectively during times of adversity. They also helped each other in ways that were not possible previously, for instance by using the KAG Public Interface to establish and operate community foodbanks, children orphanages, and homeless shelters in places where these had not been heard of."
"The interface allowed citizens to set the entry pages from any one of several web experiences as their home screens; for example 'kBase', 'kMart', 'alpha¬Omega', and 'kAds Centre'. Nevertheless, the 'kBase' personal entry page was the most popular home screen (it had been designed to aid a citizen's navigation around the interface). After the interface had become extensive, and its activities dominated the internet, the kingdom developed specialised smartphones which were optimised for the interface; by then, people did not at all need SIM cards to engage in voice calling."
[Example Feature Three]
**Continuous polling, rating, and reviewing of serving and aspiring community, Cluscomm, and Unicomm 'admins' based on their agenda, as spelt out in their published platforms, resulting in unprogrammed leadership changes which will be devoid of the ceremony and drama of today's elections. Consequently, as the kingdom spreads its wings globally, elections and electoral laws will gradually fall defunct.
"All community members were encouraged to post platforms, and up to 50% answered this call in many communities. Leadership was therefore not the preserve of a few well-connected, rich individuals; it was demystified and seen as being inherent in practically everyone. Since the posted platforms generated wide-ranging discussions and were updated accordingly along the way, the communities and their 'admins' possessed virtually all points of view regarding the issues impacting their community. Every challenge threatening a given community got uncovered, analysed, intimidated by a million sets of eyes, and eventually defeated."
"The 'Kingdom Expectations' outlawed the reviewing, rating, and polling regarding serving or aspiring 'admins' based on their gender, race, ethnicity, heritage, education, age, popularity, physical build or fitness, or wealth. All reviewing, polling, and rating were based on an aspiring 'admin's' platform or the performance of a serving 'admin's' duties as per their published platforms. Further, 'admins' with consistently low ratings and polling were required to vacate their positions for those with steadily higher ratings; indeed, the AI-operated public interface indicated the changeover automatically. Low ratings and polling for serving 'admins' resulted from their failure to execute their platforms effectively and efficiently; for aspiring 'admins', their unconvincing platforms. This culture of rating and reviewing was ubiquitous; especially for anyone receiving a service from a kingdom official at any level, all were encouraged to rate the service rendered."
"Though Unicomm 'admins' arose through the same process as that of the community, city, and Cluscomm 'admins', it was the Emperor's duty to formally appoint a Unicomm 'admin' for each Unicomm—think of a Unicomm 'admin' as a state governor in present-day governmental set ups. Unlike for the other kingdom roles, one could post an aspiring Unicomm 'admin' platform in a Unicomm where he or she did not reside—this process was as straightforward as researching into the challenges impacting a given Unicomm and developing an actionable platform to address each of those challenges. This way, kingdom citizens from halfway around the world could contribute to the transformation of struggling Unicomms even though they did not eventually get appointed as Unicomm 'admins'. Also, the Emperor sometimes swapped Unicomm 'admins' on temporary basis, to give them different perspectives to socio-economic development and to broaden their skill sets and outlooks. Regardless of where a Unicomm 'admin' served, the daily reviews, rating, and polling carried on without ceasing."
[Example Feature Four]
**The ability for most citizens to actively participate in law reform and other 'representational' matters which would have necessitated the continued existence of national and local authority assemblies—with time, such assemblies will be viewed as yesterday's approaches to solving societal problems.
"Instead of extensive and ornate council chambers, the equivalent of our 'City Halls' consisted of simple offices for the city 'admin' and the necessary service delivery technical staff. The largest space was a public concourse equipped with hi-tech devices so that visiting citizens could air their grievances and upvotes freely; in other words, the entire 'council assembly' was online and consisted of all citizens."
"As the Unicomms operationalised, they adopted all the laws that had been applicable to their residents immediately prior to their formalisation, except as regarding international law. Those laws were then reformed over time to bring them into line with the kingdom's objectives and its emerging culture. The reforms were dramatic at times. For example, other than its 'Kingdom Expectations', the KAG Public Interface did not need any laws to effect leadership change: electoral laws would therefore have been of no use, and these were quickly struck off the adopted laws. Further, deliberation on law reform happened at the Public Interface and involved most citizens, while a small team of experts-in-law curated the deliberations and effected the actual changes on the online books of law."
[Example Feature Five]
**The 20 service delivery secretariats; among them Kingdom Finance, Kingdom Health, Kingdom Security & Crime Prevention, Kingdom Re-Settlement, and Kingdom Agriculture & Food Security—all will be created and operationalised after the end of 2024. As the first Kingdom Secretary, I will coordinate and supervise the functions of the secretariats, under the oversight of the Emperor, though each secretariat will be headed by a secretary. Additionally, each secretariat will host, moderate, and curate a Public Wall whereby citizens will bring together assorted information from around the globe, with the intention of aiding the secretariat to meet its set objectives.
"The Public Walls were great meeting places for experts, enthusiasts, hobbyists, and everyday people, whereby they exchanged views pertaining to each secretariat's activities and programmes. The walls also served as venues for the receipt of the latest ideas and inventions, helpfully grouped under the concerns of each secretariat."
"At the Kingdom Commerce Public Wall, traders brought to the attention of the kingdom some remaining challenges with tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade. Others were in disbelief at how easy global trade had become after the abolition of most border inspections, customs offices, and currency exchanges."
"At the Kingdom Finance Public Wall, established and start-up entrepreneurs posted on their challenges with business finance, venture capital, and unfunded inventions; some of them eventually linked up with banks and agencies that were willing to fund them. Interestingly, all this happened at a global scale, oftentimes eliminating local bottlenecks."
"At the Kingdom Agriculture & Food Security Public Wall, successful farmers shared their latest organic farming practices and the approaches they employed towards increased harvests. Others offered their farms for joint-venture use for the kingdom's model organic farms. I also saw some small-scale farmers exchange foodstuffs among themselves, as large-scale farmers initiated the donation of their surplus harvests to regional foodbanks."
"At the Kingdom Health Public Wall, healing enthusiasts shared previously unappreciated herbal and traditional remedies with medical researchers, some of whom took the remedies up for peer-reviewed study. Even those who did not take medicine, for a variety of reasons, but remained healthy, offered themselves for medical studies through this wall. Others shared their experiences with Eastern medical practices. Virtually every medical invention, remedy, healing practice, or worthwhile curative notion that had been out there made it onto this wall, making a significant contribution to the eventual annihilation of all diseases of the flesh."
"At the Kingdom Water Public Wall, one expert posted on a solar-powered invention which efficiently and practically condensed water from the atmosphere, while others posted or commented on threads which detailed approaches to ensuring everyone had access to clean piped water."
"At the Kingdom Environment Public Wall, I saw some discussions about the latest home-based recycling bins, while polluters, large and small, were exposed and shamed sometimes in real time, complete with video evidence."
"At the Kingdom Justice Public Wall, those around the world who previously had nowhere to report the injustices they had been exposed to found their voices here. As the villains languished in their shame, cases of injustice decreased measurably."
"At the Kingdom Labour Public Wall, women from around the world, many of whom previously had no voice, ventilated on their challenges at assorted workplaces, leading to the kingdom calling out the affected Unicomms and asking them to rectify or more strictly adhere to their labour laws."
"At the Kingdom Transport & Communication Public Wall, drivers who previously drove on the left-hand side of roadways shared their experiences, as transport systems, corridors, and equipment standardised to right-hand side driving."
"The secretariats were the vertical divisions into which the kingdom administration had been partitioned into, which facilitated its smooth, effective, and sustainable operation. The countless objectives the kingdom needed to meet in its mission of global transformation had been rationalised and grouped under these secretariats. They strived to achieve the assigned objectives through various approaches, including the formulation and implementation of policies and the execution of time-specific programmes and projects. Also, some secretariats had established quasi-independent agencies to help take specific services to citizens; for example the 'Global School' and the 'Humanese' Initiative, both under Kingdom Education."
"When necessary, the Technology Department would assist the secretariats to forge time-specific technology partnerships with private companies, for instance to enable the 'Global School' to take its services to citizens without first having to develop everything from scratch."
[Example Feature Six]
**An innovatively configured digital currency, much unlike today's struggling start-ups, designed to eventually replace all other currencies and to result in a seamlessly integrated global financial system. The ability for every citizen to make an annual contribution to (or receive financial support from) the kingdom will be one of the key features of this system.
"The kingdom money I saw was thought of as 'the alpha' due to its pre-eminence and might. It was free from the shackles of national, ethnic, and tribal borders and sentiments. Even though it had initially been cross-registered and acknowledged by multiple pre-kingdom jurisdictions, its DNA had remained unaltered across-the-board."
"At first, the kingdom currency, 'alpha', and its intelligent digital wallet, 'Omega', were thought of by many as a US$-denominated 'token' and its wallet, respectively. But this was not the case, and I will use the following example for illustration—Among the first Kenyans to buy 'alpha' coins was a student who bought 10 'alpha' for 1,050 Kenya Shillings, pegged at the prevailing US$-Kenya Shilling exchange rate. This was the approach used with all currencies until they had traded in sufficient quantities and established a market-determined exchange rate with 'alpha'. As per the agreement with 'alpha¬Omega' users, the shillings were placed into a reserve bank account as Kenya Shillings. Notably, the kingdom had placed a cap on the number of coins that could be minted during a given period. It had also enabled wallet-to-wallet 'alpha'-to-local-currency exchange, and it used each currency's previous day's average exchange rate as its mint conversion rate. Some of the wallet holders were large agencies, including commercial banks. After about a year, the value of the student's 10 'alpha' had appreciated significantly."
"Later, the scenario above began to take place at scale, involving many countries' currencies, and 'The Lord's Treasury' (KAG's Reserve Bank) in the end mopped up a huge amount of cash in the form of numerous currencies. What is more, as the value, recognition, and use of 'alpha' as a medium of exchange improved consistently, the value of those mopped up currencies was decreasing, disincentivising those who had purchased 'alpha' coins from reclaiming their pre-kingdom-state funds from 'The Lord's Treasury'."
"By the time the Unicomms began to operationalise, the value of the cash reserves 'The Lord's Treasury' held was depreciating at such a high rate that the kingdom was forced to use those reserves to buy illiquid assets in the countries of origin, before the money could become completely worthless. For this reason, 'The Lord's Treasury' had to mint new 'alpha' coins that were not backed by cash reserves, to help fund the Unicomms' urgent expenses, on condition that their citizens paid local taxes and contributions to the kingdom in a timely manner. That is how the value of 'alpha' became untethered from pre-kingdom states' cash reserves. After this period, it was time for 'alpha' to face off with the US dollar and other 'hard' currencies. And despite their vigorous resistance, their defeat was certain since the difficult work had been done in stealth, and also because the full might of the kingdom communities was behind 'alpha'. From this point on, 'alpha' coins were minted and burnt as per a carefully crafted monetary policy, which ensured the socio-economic transformation of the world, just as the Almighty God had intended."
"Every user had a functionally intelligent digital wallet which generated various reports, including an anniversary statement, which displayed the financial contribution due to the kingdom or the support due to the citizen. The contribution regime started off as a use-dependent anniversary fee in support of the digital currency system maintenance (think credit card annual fees), later evolving into an advanced equivalent of our federal taxes, only that this was happening at a global scale. Notably however, the digital wallet processed the anniversary statement on its own regardless of the complexity of one's transaction activity—even those who had created it did not fully grasp how it performed the calculations. Some people paid the contribution along with a donation to the kingdom, with most contribution revenue being reallocated back into the Unicomm where the contributors lived. Donations and dividends from the ads, e-commerce, and money transfer businesses, on the other hand, were used for global activities and programmes. Early on, citizens paid the kingdom its due contribution using the digital currency (to account for all its use), but filed tax returns with their cities and pre-kingdom states using their local currencies. This went on until all remaining currencies surrendered to the kingdom money; from which point onwards, citizens settled their kingdom contribution and the city, Cluscomm, and Unicomm taxes using the digital money."
[Example Feature Seven]
**The Humanese Initiative, which will leverage on social connectivity and technology to develop a one-world language.
"Later, the KAG Public Interface used only one language (I called it 'Humanese'), which was based on the structure and script of the English language, but with a significant proportion of its vocabulary having been borrowed from other languages, as suggested by ordinary people."
[Example Feature Eight]
**Three internet-based social enterprises (start-ups) that are intended to aid the kingdom's long-term financial sustainability as they leverage on its currency and communities.
"After incubation was complete and their respective profitable operations ascertained, 'kAds', 'kMart', and 'Omega Xpress' were restructured and re-positioned as standalone companies, each headed by a CEO. Nonetheless, as business constraints allowed, the Kingdom Secretary would on occasion request them to undertake minor operational changes, aimed at oversight and at smoothening the journey towards the fulfilment of KAG objectives. On the other hand, 'alpha¬Omega' moved over and became the foundational element of 'The Lord's Treasury', a quasi-independent agency under Kingdom Finance."
"From the beginning, the Technology Department had set 'alpha' as the only currency one could use at 'kAds', 'kMart', and 'Omega Xpress'—before initiating a transaction, people would load their local currency into their 'Omega' digital wallets as 'alpha' coins. At their maturity, 'kAds' utilised ad space around the extensive KAG Public Interface, 'kMart' was a truly global e-commerce enterprise, while 'Omega Xpress' rode on the 'alpha¬Omega' network to become a cheap and ubiquitous money transfer and merchant services behemoth. The fact that 100% of the dividends from these three social enterprises would end up assisting the customer's community was an important pull factor."
"At a time when virtually all advertising had gone digital, and the advertising industry had grown tremendously in tandem with the transformed world economy, this interface had the highest market share, in a context where its competitors were several times larger than today's internet-based enterprises. Dividends from the kingdom's ads, e-commerce, and money transfer businesses funded a significant proportion of its budget, contributing to the enhanced and wide-ranging social services it offered citizens around the world."
[Assorted Features from the Book]
**A host of other features as alluded to in the book.
"The Kingdom Anthem was a catchy instrumental piece, named, 'A Prayer for the Kingdom'—as it played, citizens wished the kingdom well, silently and unostentatiously."
"Most of the existing federal and nation-state agencies were reformed and regionally rationalised, and they served all Unicomms without discrimination; others became defunct, for example the present-day federal courts of law."
Guarding Global Peace
**During the revelation period, the Almighty God and His angels kept showing me the unseen bodiless beings (see Chapter 2 of the book), who are opposed to the actualisation of the millennial kingdom. They worked tirelessly as they set about confusing, discouraging, and deceiving those whom the Almighty God worked with to set up the kingdom. Additionally, they pitted people against each other by negatively affecting their minds and inclining them towards conflict. To defeat the designs of those evil forces, the Almighty God asked the angels to ensure that:
"The model kingdom community that was established on a parcel of sovereign land was not aligned or allied to any of the existing countries. As the kingdom eventually replaced all those previously existing countries, I pondered how difficult this would have been had the kingdom been a surrogate of one of them, noting that such a country's global diplomatic positioning and its existing and emerging conflicts would equally have been the kingdom's."
"Security at the model kingdom community depended only on the Almighty God, advanced technology, location, geography and physical features, positive public sentiment, and the city's police (though they were armed only lightly while on the beat around the city). The idea of location being employed as an approach to security reminded me of how one cannot reach the Vatican without travelling through Italy."
"The kingdom did not lend moral or any kind of support or encouragement to violent protestors and demonstrators who had been stopped from interacting with the kingdom by their countries. Instead, I saw people slowly move out of hard-line countries to regions where they could join kingdom communities freely; this is what eventually caused the implosion of those federations and nation-states. As they increasingly lost well-educated citizens, their economies shrank, and their currencies were no longer viable."
"The kingdom continuously campaigned for the dissolution of armed forces around the world, so that more resources could be available for police departments and the research into effective, non-lethal, technology-based policing tools."
"I would be available from the very beginning to take up the position of the first Kingdom Secretary, so I could help to establish the kingdom exactly as I saw it evolve in the revelation: from nothing to the most transformative thing in human history."
We hope to raise at least US$ 45 million, which will also help to fund the book's translation to other languages, the production of audiobook versions and downloadable apps, and a 4-year global marketing campaign—the marketing of the English version of the book will hopefully restart by the end of April 2021 (the Almighty God first needed to prepare the ground before post-launch marketing could take place). The effective and continued marketing of the book during the pre-2025 period will be crucial to the success of the kingdom; for one, it will galvanise the book's readers around the kingdom agenda and the currency in the post-2024 era. All book-related matters will be handled by a 'Book Hub', which will be separate and wholly independent from the KAG Public Interface. Consequently, during the pre-2025 period, there will be no publicly discernable connection between the book and the KAG Public Interface, which will indeed operate under a different, less obvious name; this approach is of vital strategic importance. As an alternative to the 'Book Hub' arrangement, an agent or a publisher may buy the rights to the book. In such a scenario, I would allocate all the received funds to this fundraising effort.
So far I've been funding all operations on my own, and I urge you to assist by making a donation via GoFundMe®.
