Action

Action is a central concept in ZS, which values intellectual pursuits and due consideration of complex matters, but which values action toward concrete goals above all. All ZSers are expected to contribute, the oft-stated rule being No Passengers.

Although people are encouraged to contribute in ways and at levels that suit them, that latitude should not be confused with acceptance of total inactivity, or equating talking with activity. Everyone must do their part, however small.

Of course, ZSers may contribute in any number of ways, and their House is tasked with determining whether their contribution is worthwhile. If a would-be ZSer feels that another House would be a better fit for them they may always request to join another, but all ZSers must contribute in one way or another, by definition.

To make things easier ZS offers ten Action Modes, as listed below. ZSers are encouraged to support ZS and their House in any way they can think of, but the following modes are offered as a guide and starting point:
The Logic:

01 Golden Rule
The “Golden Rule” is generally understood to be a rule of reciprocity; to treat others as you would be treated. Within ZS, the Golden Rule is slightly more specific: That if you would be protected and supported by ZS, then you must work to protect and support other ZSers.
