About The Fatsmeagol Collective

The Fatsmeagol Collective is a democratic organization of like minded and highly talented polymaths. We are all in-fact Owner-employees and are breaking out of The Agentic State. The collective is based on the Pareto Principle - the 80/20 rule. A Socio-Political statement in the form of better organizational governance. There is an increasing shift in focus, away from the centralization of wealth to the redistribution of it. A growing number of us no longer care about being the next Donald Trump, Deepinder Goyal or Mukesh Ambani. But rather focus on doing amazing work with awesome people. This is why The Fatsmeagol Collective exists - we are a necessary outcome of a shift in consciousness. A democratic collective of polymaths with no centralized concentration of wealth. Every employee is an owner with shares in the organization and has an equal vote in how the collective manages it's finances. Today we live in a convergence economy - the time for polymaths to rule.

And we can’t act without some sort of direction from one higher. I call this The Agentic State; the individual yields to authority and in doing so, becomes alienated from his own actions." - Stanley Milgram
