10 Greek drachma

Ethos, Pathos and Logos of Lions Gate Club

The question that forms the basis of this dialog is best efficacy, and assuming it’s necessary to own a Self-sovereign ID (SSI); what is the best way to get one? where’s the best place to keep it? who will be watching over it?

Then, as it relates to the Club; How can we collectively monetize our numbers to generate the necessary revenue, to not only secure the SSI data but to also pay for an outreach program with money for marketing? In in the long term, how could we create a sustainable revenue model to generate opportunity for new digital careers?

How can we attract the best and brightest minds, as we strive for excellence in blockchain management systems marketplace?

Business Model

How much does it cost and how do we pay? In simplest principles if we pay $3.33 forward for the future, then pay $3.33 back to the people who introduced us. Next have $3.33 for the cost of servicing the tokens that house our blockchain. Lions Gate system acts as a control panel for our collective digital assets and provides us mobile phone apps to access and use but the actual SSI is on a 3rd party.

For $9.99 per month you are now in business with your SSI being your asset but it will take time until your membership grows through your own contribution, over time, Golden ratio math, same as a seed in a sunflower, from the middle towards the outside edge, where you begin earning $3.33 per month (profit) cash back and it continues to grow from there. The revenue is sustainable.

Self-sovereign means just that, you own it, you are the King of your own domain and it’s your name but it needs to part of a large group that you participate in by growing, long term because of your faith in this idea. The idea is a virtual corporation with a share the growth business model, based on a club.

Knowledge is power, words are weapons and your name is an asset given to you by God. The plan is to co-operate as crypto speculators and form virtual legions of individuals in a hive-mind, working together on a common enterprise.

The purpose of Lions Gate is to help you learn how to obtain, maintain and remotely host your SSI in a encrypted and decentralized cloud on a blockchain. Then capitalize on the incentives of recommending the club to other people, to participate in a revolutionary new “Share the Growth” business model.

Ethos or the ethical appeal, means to convince an audience of the author’s credibility or character. Pathos or the emotional appeal, means to persuade an audience by appealing to their emotions. … Logos or the appeal to logic, means to convince an audience by use of logic or reason.

Why Lions Gate Club?

The modes of persuasion, often referred to as ethical strategies or rhetorical appeals, are devices in rhetoric that classify the speaker’s appeal to the audience. They are: ethos, pathos, and logos, and the less-used kairos.

Aristotle‘s Rhetoric describes the modes of persuasion thus: Persuasion is clearly a sort of demonstration, since we are most fully persuaded when we consider a thing to have been demonstrated. Of the modes of persuasion furnished by the spoken word there are three kinds:

  • Persuasion is achieved by the speaker’s personal character when the speech was so well spoken as to make us think them credible.
  • Secondly, persuasion may come through the hearers, when the speech stirs their emotions.
  • Thirdly, persuasion is effected through the speech itself when we have proved a truth or an apparent truth by means of the persuasive arguments suitable to the case in question.

In rhetoric, kairos is “a passing instant when an opening appears which must be driven through with force if success is to be achieved.”

Kairos is the most compelling reason for Lions Gate Club

Now having provided all that preamble (see above) to provide you, the reader, with context for this blog and the Raison d’être (reason for being) of Lions Gate Club. In the days ahead, each day, I will present information to persuade the reader of the importance of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI)

Part of the rhetoric here is directed towards defence of the “Club” organization versus a standard corporate business model in the development of this project. The primary reason for the club, or collective ownership model is to avoid the temptation of selling or renting the data and or meta data. Also, a Club with a charter for the protection of the data and a mandate to secure, harden and test the security of the data management systems, constantly and endlessly.

Just because we’re a Club doesn’t mean that the members can’t become wealthy from growing and managing the enterprise. It’s just not realistic though, to create a “for profit” corporation that will not break it’s promise to not sell the data, or as I mentioned the meta data, which in and of itself doesn’t jeopardize the security of the individual member data but put’s the company on a slippery slope.

As a Club organization we will be able to achieve a much higher standard, adopt stricter protocols, enforce tighter rules and attract the brightest minds. Ultimately, the intellectual capital of our brain-trust is our main advantage and unique selling point. Brain power to defeat AI (artificial intelligence) hands down.

Humanity in a focused group, or Club can defeat trans-humanism by using the mobile device as the end-point of technology at the hand, and keeping technology outside of the human body. The IoT (Internet of Things) can exist without including humans being connected. Lions Gate is the key and our mission is to defend the freedom of choice of the individual by guarding their self-sovereign identification and educating people how to remain sovereign.
