SHOP enables persons to exchange things without the use of money.
At SHOP, persons can contribute things for other persons to use, persons can use things, borrow things, swap things, or persons can take things they need. All sorts of things can be available at SHOP.
A SHOP can be situated inside buildings, outside buildings, or it can be mobile. The things present at SHOP are labelled in different categories in order to show: that they can only be used at SHOP (yellow tag), borrowed (magenta tag), or they can be used, borrowed, swapped or if necessary, taken (cyan tag).
Any person can use SHOP. The initiator decides when the SHOP is accessible. The initiator of a SHOP decides which category the things present at SHOP belong to. If persons are motivated by profit to use SHOP, it is suggested that they try to understand the attempt to find other ways of exchanging things than through the use of money and the pursuit of profit.
Attention is directed to the logical relation between persons and the rights of persons. Persons should be treated as persons and therefore as having rights. If we deny this assertion it goes wrong: here is a person, but this person should not be treated as a person, or: here is a person, who should be treated as a person, but not as having rights. Therefore we can only talk about persons in a way that makes sense if we know that persons have rights.
Any person can start a new SHOP. SHOP requires a place, room or some kind of mobile construction. By informing N55 at firstname.lastname@example.org of the position of the SHOP, a list of SHOPs will be published on this website. If a SHOP is closed down, it is suggested that the things are transferred to another existing SHOP.
SHOP is maintained by the persons using it.
