Giving every child a Fair Start in life is the only way to empower those children without disempowering others. And there are specific ways to do that.
Fair Start helps shift unjust concentrations of wealth and power towards funding all children with equal opportunities in life and a natural, biodiverse environment. This is not charity – this is fundamental justice, or ensuring that the true costs of all wealth are paid back into communities in the most effective way possible, to liberate people in the only way possible.
This is something no other group does. Nothing has a greater impact. Urge any group you support to disclose the destructive impact of their family policies on the progress they claim. You will be surprised.
Per our recent Newsweek piece and multiple peer-reviews, it is physically impossible for us to orient our lives and actions from a just and empowering place – or for governments to create obligations like property rights – without ensuring fair starts in life for all children.
THe Most Effective APproach
A fair start in life is the first human right – it overrides all others. It is what children are entitled to under the Children’s Rights Convention, and what allows them to eventually be free from the power of others, and truly self-determining. And that means climate and ecological rewilding through birth-equity redistribution of wealth, by all means effective.
Wealth at the top was built by using growth to convert our town halls into shopping malls, which disempowered us. We have the right to take the difference back, and invest it in our kids to to ensure birth equity and climate restoration.
If we start equal, we end free.
