Project Manifesto

Welcome to the project manifesto

  • First it describes our technology, how our system will work, and stages in implementation.
  • The second, larger section answers the “Questions for Authors of Works on New Models and Systems” created by The Next System Project. Which is another exciting collaboration our team recommends visiting. -In particular their video about a Pluralist Commonwealth, which almost could have been a video for our own team’s vision.

The following is our project manifesto: the-library-that-becomes-government

 

TLDR:
Instead of building a better system and hoping everyday people adopt it, (which seems to not work in practice), we want to build a wiki for all solutions, that also provides tools for Open Source Governance. It will also have a time bank and other features to make itself interesting and useful to regular people, thus ensuring the spread of tools for direct representation.

 

As citizens we can gripe about how our governments are corrupt but at the end of the day what we need is a better process. That means we need to create one and spread it, which is impossible unless it is something that everyone, or at least a serious majority of people, can personally see value in.

 

So instead of staking out a position and trying to get everyone to come to us, we’re taking a queue from science and developing a better process. One built on the idea of a wiki for listing, rating, and discussing all our problems and ideas. Most importantly this will be done in a dynamic way, so instead of a giant pile of content, people simply click on problems to see all the best related ideas.

 

One of the greatest benefits to making a wiki where people can create discussions about problems with literally anything, is that we can also type in the name of the wiki itself. Meaning its every problem and potential solution will be listed and rated, enabling this system of governance to not merely outperform present systems of government, but to actually evolve itself rapidly.

 

Also in cyberspace we can manipulate the very space we call ‘group discussion’, we can communicate in ways that are literally not possible in physical space. Our project aspires to really dial that difference in using a variety of completely new communication tools.
