昂贵福利计划是一个长期的项目,它是一次文化实验,它企图为非主流的、边缘的、底层的人群建造一种有保障的意识形态。Costly是一种创作题材。一种价值体系与审美标准。costlyboy昂贵福利计划将会为世界上一系列的非主流的、边缘的、底层的人群提供一种精神信仰与物质支撑。costlyboy昂贵福利计划旗下的系统族族zuzu)是一个纯粹的民族体系试验机构。也是本计划的执行机构,宗旨是为了民族而民族。目标是开发完善的民族框架,建立一系列的社会传播终端。系统成型后将会免费为国家地区提供解决方案。

现阶段全球社会上的主流思维极易影响及操控边缘人士,他们强势地透过各种媒介来释放他们的价值观,甚至法律在他们面前都会失去公正(例如美国加州的8号法案)。很多中立人士,权利机关迫于主流舆论或者教派的的压力,不得不作出违背真理的判决。所以,非主流的、边缘的、底层的人群,他们的利益、他们的意见、他们的话语权都将被主流的文明的法律机制所掩埋,这一切得不到传播、放大、理解,对整个人类社会而言是极其可怕的。当主流的审美得到大多数认同时,区别于主流审美体系的人将被认作是非美,当文明与合法对等的时候,那么,不文明即是非法。这种正统观念一旦被认可,便会豪无忌惮的合理的法律性的压抑小众人群。

昂贵福利项目正是以缓解这种矛盾为宗旨的项目,它试图透过物质的奖励和精神上的认同来激励小众人群反抗,减少主流社会对其行为和思想上的干扰,让他们保持独立的姿态、高度的自我认同以及持续的活力。这个活力不是指其存在与否或正在运行与否,而是指其创造的能力。很多非主流的事物,一旦失去其创造力,尽管其形式仍然是非主流的,却只有两种结局:一、消失;二、被同化。昂贵福利项目将透过各种传播措施不遗余力地传播非主流的,边缘的,底层人群的价值观和审美习惯。使社会中的少数族避免主流模式给他们带来的同化和改变,使来自这些群体的思想,行为,审美习惯拥有充分的话语权。同时,记录全面的,真实的历史也将是昂贵福利项目的义务。因为人们了解的所谓的历史,往往是大众版的历史,而不是以历史的真相为历史。族族将是这个计划的重要组成部分,我们将搭建一个虚拟和真实的地域平台,让不同心理素质的,不同经济基础的,携带不同文化元素的昂贵福利申请者在这一平台上讨论、创造、分享他们的个人经验。

Costly Welfare Project is a cultural experiment which tries to build a kind of ideology with guarantee for the non-main-stream,lower-class and fringe minority. Costly is a creative theme, a value system and an aesthetic standard. Costly Welfare Project shall provide its material and spiritual support for all kinds of non-main-stream, lower-class and fringe people in the world. Zuzu, an experimental organization in the pure form of ethnologic system, means and works for just the word of “nation”, and aims to develop a perfect nation framework and to establish a series of social transmit terminal. When it gets matured, Zuzu shall offer solutions for each station and district for free.

Nowadays the thoughts of the main-stream society influence and control those of the fringe people so easily that they release their value view through kinds of media in force, that even the law loses justice in front of them (Proposition 8 of California, USA).Therefore, the advice, the advantage and the speech right of non-main-stream, lower-class and fringe minority are buried by the main-stream law mechanism. This is terrible for the whole human society if none of the minority thoughts is spread, enlarged,and understood. While majority agrees with “beauty”, anything other than main-stream aesthetic appreciation will be considered“non-beauty”; while civilization is equal to legality, non-civilization is definitely illegal. Once this “legitimate” idea istransplanted into majority’s concept system, it depresses minority, “legally” and “reasonably”.

Costly Welfare Project just aims at alleviating such kind of contradiction. It helps and encourages the fringe minority, by material welfare and spirit agreement, to react against depression, decreasing the interference on thoughts and actions from mainstream society, sustaining their independent gestures, highly self-esteem, and continuous activity. The activity here means the ability to create, instead that whether it exists or has functions or not. Many non-main-stream things, once losing their own creativity, turns out just two endings, one is to disappear and the other is to be assimilated.

Costly Welfare Project shall try every means to transmit the value concept and the aesthetic manner of the non-main-stream, lower-class and fringe minority, enduing them with total freedom to think, to convey and to own speech right. At the same time, Costly Welfare Project shall take the responsibility to record the real history, as comprehensive as possible. People commonly understand the public history as the socalled HISTORY, rather than the history based on facticity. Zuzu, as one of the most important parts of this program, is a platform crossed with fictitious network and real area, which will be built in the near future. It is also a platform for Costly Welfare applicants with different mental qualities, with different economic bases and with different cultural backgrounds to discuss, create and share each of their personal experience together.
