- The proper, legitimate, and just reward of labor.
- Security of person and property.
- The greatest practicable amount of freedom to each individual.
- Economy in the production and uses of wealth.
- To open the way for each individual to the possession of land, and all other natural wealth.
- To make the interests of all to co-operate with and assist each other, instead of clashing with and counteracting each other.
- To withdraw the elements of discord, of war, of distrust and repulsion, and to establish a prevailing spirit of peace, order, and social sympathy.
— Josiah Warren, “Equitable Commerce,” 1852
