The 9 roads to Victory

The goals of these mechanisms are a correct trade mechanism, which requires the proper and efficient distribution of power to all.
Democratic Authorities (Government)
Democratic Ventures (companies)
Democratic Investment (socially motivated investment credit)
Democratic Demarcations (land distribution).
Democratic Authorities Ventures Investments Demarcations or D.A.V.I.D. system for short. The reasons for this system are not tackled in this document. This document is a field manual for its implementation. See for one possible implementation of a D.A.V.I.D. model the proposed Constitution, in the second half of this manual. Extensive reasoning and additional non-essential details are elsewhere (at the time of this writing online at www.law4.org), but this manual should be enough to get the job done.

This proposed reform, revolution and uprising system has categorised 9 roads of increasing intensity to handle increasingly harsh repression against it, so that in general one would pursue all the schemes up to the one necessary. It can help to prepare and be ready with more intense modes of struggle then necessary at the moment to discourage the opposition to attempt to increase their repression in an effort to maintain their power. The nature of the schemes proposed here is in the area of organisation, sometimes principled goals and some general strategies. It is then up to the powers created to pursue improvements.

The first schemes can be done immediately in any nation without a harsh tyranny. In nations with such a tyranny or where one threatens one would need to prepare a military defence for these struggles, which is scheme o-5. One can for example start with the military organisation and once it is sufficiently menacing to parts of the establishment that would consider a tyrannical crackdown on the people, then engage in political struggle of the less forceful kinds. That way these people engaged in the 'soft schemes' feel better protected. Note that with menacing is meant its great military power and discipline, not that it would be an omni-directional mob of madness and mayhem (such mobs are our enemies). The armed uprising (o-5) against a tyranny that denies free speech and free assembly (the minimum democratic rights to solve all problems by talking and voting and being reasonable), is possibly illegal in some nations (although it may be legal if training is done with fake weapons). Military conquest (o-6) is an historical endeavour to secure the existence of a (new?) nation, and could take the form of a secession war against an empire. Distributed cell resistance (o-7) is a defence during an ongoing harsh tyranny which does not allow (immediately) one of the other schemes. The protection of truth (o-8) is for conditions that do not even allow a cell resistance, where even having certain information is actively threatened by a tyrannical government or criminal group. These roads to victory are detailed one by one in the following chapters ... good luck ! To do these things deliberately with discipline and attention should make all the difference. Even if only partial goals are reached the partial success should still be an improvement. All the parts of this system are not needed before the parts would function in some way.

Truth (o-0)

Everything that can be done to get people to have the chance to reject this proposal, which means enough of them understand it. Coalitions (o-0B): Single issue loose coalitions can be formed.

Fair trade (o-1)

The buying of products and services of companies promotes their existence, while not buying their products/services reduces the chances of their survival (obviously). Buying fair trade is a consumer investment in an economy with fairer jobs for more people, perhaps also for that consumer.

Finance (o-2)

Set up funds to create companies that are immediately or end up later being owned by the people who work in it. Loan contracts can stipulate when the company democratises (see also 6.3.a). The fund brings together investment capital from its members, for example in the form of donations, until the members deem the fund capital to be large enough. A separate money stream is directed to the operational costs of the fund, among which the wage (what would otherwise be the "profit" taken from the interest scored on the for profit loan repayment) for the loan making agents (called "investors" in the capitalist system, but here it is the fund members who invest, keeping the loan making agents in line by their power). The members ought to establish a democratic control system which has the ultimate power (for example the ownership), because that prevents the lending agents to be tempted to make interest bearing loans with labour abusing potentates. One idea for this control mechanism of the members is the voter-group model (see below). Beware of funds that work on a trust us model, that has been tried and failed enough times.

Companies that betray the lending arrangement while no recourse to the Judiciary resolves the matter can be destroyed by economic warfare operated by the same and/or other such funds in the scheme, or even dedicated economic warfare funds. Economic warfare: funding competitors at a cut-throat quality/price combination nearby, even at a loss to the fund itself, while asking for a consumer boycott of the offending company.

Under conditions of economic warfare from an existing for profit investment sector it might be necessary to hide the contracts, because dictatorial businesses and rent-seeking funds may attempt to bankrupt and shut out of trade everything they do not like for political reasons (their economic struggle against justice). Setting up trade networks between democratised and democratising businesses can defeat such tactics.

Funds can also be gathered to buy land. This should not be construed as meaning that the claim of ownership of previous a owner is recognised, only the Sovereignty of the People is recognised, their decisions about laws. The nation is the one who owns the land by occupation (not the Government). After the land is liberated into a distributive system, it could be managed as a sub-sovereign land distribution system. The sub-sovereign land distribution is a great excuse to set up a council government. Land distribution in this system is meant to be regulated by objective laws, justice maintained by the courts, with land for public use, nature (other?) subtracted first by the Government. (See further http://www.law4.org/fund/een)

Human scale organisation system for groups of any size

In this model there are maximum 2 election steps to a Government council from any individual voter. Voters organise voter-group of 50 or more persons for themselves, and then elect a delegate or spokesperson, who does not have to be a part of that voter-group, then 50 or more of so elected delegates can form councils: 1 election step. Those delegates also combine to elect one from between them for larger councils: election steps 2. By increasing the size of the delegates-group that elects another delegate from a few to indefinite, a central council of again 50 persons in the top can be elected. To adapt this voter-group system for smaller organisations is easy: reducing the size of the voter-groups and councils, until it fits the size of the group. One can play with these 3 variables, however the main idea here is to maintain a top council which has a certain massiveness to it, between 30 and 60, ideally perhaps 50.

Within this model one can organise the councils and/or voter-groups internally as well, because a debate between 50 persons is different then a debate between 10. The 50 persons groups can be divided into sub-councils of each 10 persons or so, who debate an issue and pass their results to other sub-councils who then do the same. The results can be passed back and forth between the sub-councils, until the time is right to put it before the assembled sub-councils, the council.

This flexible size is not replicated in the State model because the State model is a more serious organisation (Sovereign), and deals with a continuum of people in a wider area. They will have to measure up by forming properly sized voter-groups which all will carry a certain political weight by their number. The uniformity across the nation allows it to integrate.

Political parties (o-3)

1. Open market between the sister parties, each party does only attempt to organise a minority, for example maximum 10% of the people or 10% of the politically active people. 2. The DAVID sister parties, who can each have their own nuances in their interpretation of a DAVID system (or even disagree with important parts of it), play the proposed Constitution internally as a way of keeping the party loyal to the members, and to become familiar with the new system (and correct mistakes in it if any, or make improvements, or just being creative). 3. The party is internally an absolute democracy, no holding back. Because it is an absolute internal democracy, it is probably a good idea to get an idea that the people who want to become members do so honestly. Members shouldn't be loyal to the party, because even a party as democratic as this might go bad. 4. When there is a disagreement on the course of the party and a part of it wants to split away, then that split of the party is a good thing because it increases the offerings on the political market. The smallest group that splits away should get ample of opportunity to ask others to join the split, have access to make their points, and then the split can occur in good order. The parties can later cooperate at will.

5. The party runs empty pocketed, membership costs nothing and large donations are not accepted from any source except members, including the existing Government. Some nations have a system where political parties get public money, which may be fine for non-revolutionary parties, but in this system serious changes are the goal hence a financial dependency on what we want to change could produce political corruption. The same is true with banking interests, the rich, land owners, and so on, we can not accept their donations because they buy political loyalty with that money. Them buying our political parties is bribery. Things that cost money will have to be billed to those members that want them, everything brought together from donations from the members for that particular thing. This makes party finances somewhat of a headache, but it is probably worthwhile, and it keeps the people who are more active in the party in line because with fewer money they are limited in their activities. They may not like it, but it keeps power at the base: constantly having to ask the members if they support something means they are boss. A cash poor political party is likely more run by volunteers and part-time working persons.

6. Where there is no way to win power in Government being a minority party, for example in a winner-takes-all voting system, the parties will have to combine in confederations of maximum looseness, and break out into independence whenever possible.

7. The first attempt to destroy the Empire is by asserting national Sovereignty in the national Parliaments or other platforms of political power. A time frame to destroy the Imperial Parliament by infiltration is hard to give because the Empire will possibly 'strike back' with immoral legislation knowing this attack is coming. The majority will of the people has to be respected of course, but only per area. Secession is great, pulverising the Empire is better.

When we are strong in the nations and there is a good chance we can dominate an Imperial Parliament, the word it can be decided by a majority of the DAVID sister parties in the empire to suddenly participating in Imperial Parliamentary elections. To flood that system and then rip it out by legal measure. We should not get stuck in the Imperial political system but pull out all our people to the last man/women if we fail to destroy the empire in that operation. A plan should be drawn up to participate into what elections and when we have failed and pull out. We may then have to wait year or decades before trying again. If it is decided to pull this operation over several or one more election, then at least all the positions should be given to other people to prevent the DAVID system to get stuck in the empire.

Empires that do not even have an Imperial Parliament, or who's voting systems are thoroughly unreliable will probably have to be destroyed by direct action. For example street revolution (o-4) supported by a scheme-5 or even scheme-6 military uprising (see below). There are no guarantees of military peace between the nations, it's called freedom. Empires are too big to be managed properly, therefore they corrupt, its people turn into intellectual children without the hope of having any influence until the empire finally destroys itself.

8. The political parties should not use shoulder insignia in the colours blue on white for the Constitutional positions because those colours are reserved for the revolutionary scheme (o-4). 9. These political DAVID parties have their own ways beyond the role society may have assigned to them. They are political parties in the widest sense of the word: groups of people that want something. 10. The international arena exists only as a publication of agreements or disagreements reached between two or more parties from different nations. There exists no organisation that bills itself as an international element, especially not exclusive. The international element exists as an ongoing vacuum of complete freedom, into which various parties their agreements and disagreements exist. It is important not to start up an Imperialist system of our own.

Flag of the D.A.V.I.D.-ist International, which is not an organisation but merely a banner below which to conduct multilateral party meetings.

11. Marches in this system are considered having little to no power, they are not a properly organised military revolution, but often appear to threaten such action by their numbers and location. They are potentially dangerous because violent enemies may make lists of participants and even ambush them. Marches can be engaged in combat through provocation, the violence will then be used to paint the people in the march bad.

The chanting and obstruction of traffic, sometimes occupations of buildings or squares, causes the demonstration to become a nuisance to some people undermining support for the cause. If numbers are not on our side we will simply have to retreat. Starting to scream and get in peoples way is not likely going to help, on the contrary.

Hence, in this system the demonstration is primarily for ourselves, to socialise and feel good. We dress nice, carry perhaps some signs but not too many not to appear silly. We do not (as a rule) obstruct traffic or occupy squares. The best rule is that small children find it amusing.

For the more serious efforts a trained internal order force should be set up (can be done along the lines of a military or police organisation) which is to quell rioters and hand them over to the authorities. This way we show that we are a safe haven for the Sovereignty. Our demonstrations are not a forced attempt on the buildings where power tends to be concentrated, therefore we can actively avoid such buildings. This calms existing order forces, perhaps opens them up for our cause. Then we will also have little trouble avoiding the association with rioters who have a tendency to congregate there. When we organise an armed force to overthrow the existing order, we will do so properly (see o-5, o-6 instead), not unarmed and untrained with with absurd combat strategies. An interesting activity during our marches is to hand out debating material both internally and to passers by, while allowing others to hand their materials to us so that we can find the best solutions.

A BETTER FUTURE ?

analysis

* We can not build without a political/economic solution: analysis, solutions, laws. A system of society/law must be invented, and then a way to get it (overcoming distortion of democracy by Capital). This sheet proposes a certain solution, worked out in detail elsewhere.

* Trading of products and services is (should be) a protection for the people that produce them. To be fair this demands equal power between all people.

* The things that go wrong without justification, are the result of the greedy and unaccountable management invested in by the gambling private financiers for their own sake (Capitalist distortion of the free markets).

solution

* All investment money becomes a democratic tool, no more private gambling with people's lives by the unproductive financial investment sector.

* Companies become democracies when the business starter leaves. Starter gets compensation and a share of future profits.

* Land for nature and public utility is subtracted from the total of the Nation first, what remains is divided equally. What you can do with it is limited by democratic government to prevent chaos. You can not sell/lose this right, but you can rent it out.

* Sectors of productivity where competition for consumer favour does not work because there can't be enough competitors or the cost of bankruptcy is too high that it can't be allowed anyway, are directed by democracy/negotiation.

* Money is transferred to a new (not global) currency to flush out private Capital. The money and debt of people is transplanted to the new money, but a maximum (30 times average?) is set for everyone, what is more is not transplanted to the new money (it stops existing).

* The maximum size of a Nation will be 100 million voters, each Nation will be fully sovereign.

method

* First thinking about (this and/or other) solutions, improving them where needed. See for theory, Constitution proposal, technology:

A PEOPLE'S GOVERNMENT ?


* Make sure the conditions are favourable: no international war threat because of these changes, National majority which has declared itself openly in favour.
* People group per 50 or (a little?) more, elect one voter block housekeeper. This housekeeper is responsible for proper voting procedure. Elect a delegate / representative. Any delegate can be replaced at any moment if the voters of its block elect someone else.
* Delegates group geographically per 50 or more to form Local Government. Delegates elect from between themselves a chair person; it has no vote, it is responsible for the associated voter block housekeepers. This Local Government Council first decides on a Council name by agreeing a majority vote has been reached on a name, handles emergency situations, sets and publishes its agenda points for the next meeting. Unless there are emergencies, agenda points can only be handled if they have been 7 days on the public agenda. Proposals for new law require more time: 2 month' on the agenda. Taking this delay serious prevents chaos and is more democratic. If there are a lot of delegates in a local Government body, they can group again together to form 50 groups of local delegates. Each delegate group sends one delegate for Local Government.
* Proposed/default meeting places: Monday 1st and 3rd of the Month in the city-centre or first suitable location to its North, if none there first suitable location to the east of the line city centre / North by rotating that line around the city like the arm of a clock. Tuesday every week the same in neighbourhoods (according to name or geography). Wednesday on 4 O'Clock in the neighbourhoods in the street which sorts lowest in the alphabet. Thursday the delegates which have been elected by other delegates in the city centre or neighbourhood centre.
* When you get things right, look at other cities and make sure they get it right.
* Entire Nation: Divide the Nation in blocks not larger then 100 million potential voters (adults or all persons). Divide this Nation in 50 blocks with (about) equal numbers of delegates. Each 50th of the Nation's delegates, elects one delegate for National Government. This "Country Council" works like the Local Government Councils: agenda points, delegate replacement. Elect the Electoral Committee (EC), that is 10 persons on a National ballot directly by the People, see Constitution for the rules. Decide whether you want a King Elect, if so the oldest in the EC will become King Elect. The EC can be elected and next to it a Referendum on whether the People want to start with a King Elect in place. This King only has power if the delegates create chaos and the courts agree this is the case. The EC can call new elections, also for themselves by stepping down. This King has to be re-elected after having had real power for one year (see Constitution for the exact rules).
* It is a system of Law, not a system of unlimited representative power, Referendum results are binding. The Local Government deals with local problems and can make law to the degree the Country Council allows it. The Country Council handles National issues, maintains the Constitution and Currency, solves problems between Local Governments. The Courts maintain the system: Courts of Justice solve legal disputes, Judge Courts judge potential mistakes there, the National Law Court interprets the Law if there are legal disputes on the meaning of the Law. There is no rules higher then the Constitution, the Police enforces the Law. The Courts will have to accept the new Laws, but all law that does not conflict with the Constitution, remains as is, until it is explicitly changed by the proper legal procedure.
* Take responsibility for the Nation, and be accountable. Uphold the law, fight crime. The Country is not embedded in an International nanny system, but fully sovereign to do what it wants. You will get the kind of country according to the effort put in.

Sheet 3

---------------------------------------------------------------------

A new form of Government:

A new form of Government can be established, where people group in small groups selecting a representative. These representatives combine to form councils. Below is how this is to be achieved in actuality. See also http://www.law4.org/plan_joshb/sheet2.txt (revolution) and http://www.law4.org/gov.html for additional ideas ...

Dividing into groups:


- The women will take the lead.
- The women will go to the houses if the people are inside.
- The men will stand on one side and the women on the other, two groups. The men will attempt to remain calm.
- The women will attempt to set up these voter groups properly. They will make proposals to the men, ask assistance of the men for certain tasks. The men will then reject or accept the proposals of the women and give the women their arguments. The women will then discuss that and see how to proceed.
- It is undefined in the (proposed) Constitution how the voter groups are formed, the idea is not to create women and men voter groups, although you could do that also if you like. The idea was to have mixed groups of men and women, men and women in the same voter groups, but that is neither an obligation of any kind. The proposed Constitution literally says:

       _3.1.d People Government
        One group of adults assemble out of their own initiative.
        Once they have chosen from between them a vote block housekeeper
        that is responsible for correct voter registration and verification,
        they are allowed to have one representative, which can be anyone in
        or out of that block. The People or in their absence the Country
        Council decide on the minimum size of a voter group.
       
        The minimum size for a voter group is: ..50 persons.

Creating these 'voter groups' is the first task at hand in setting up this form of Government. Only to make that go as smooth as possible is the initiative in that task proposed for the women, because they probably will do it better, and the most power hungry / aggressive men will not be able to dominate the situation for power games.
- If there is disagreement between the women then the oldest five women will form a committee of order and they are responsible for letting things go calmly and properly, whatever is decided.
+ In case these things happen with actual groups standing outside, it may be nice at some point if there is some drinks for everyone. Because when groups are outside either something good, or something bad may happen, but when everyone has something to drink how can something bad happen - then something good will happen. Everyone will calm down a bit, hopefully. Sharing a drink means friendship between all people. As a practical issue: bring your own cup out of your home ? In all the happenings it won't be nice if someone loses its cups by accident, or if people need to concern themselves with such logistics also on top of what might have to be done.
- The men can constantly say yes or no, and give their arguments, and the women can constantly make new proposals. If there is no solution then the women can propose to go on another day, and go home.
- If the men are unruly, the younger men must listen to the much older men as if they where their fathers and as if they where small children.
- It is best to take enough time for everything and not to rush, because in the rush someone may feel oppressed and jump up, and that may cause others to jump up, and then because of the rushing everything may break down. When in doubt, stay calm and do nothing, or talk to the person next to you and don't scream and shout and whatever.
- Some individual men should not think they should go and stand with the women because they think they can, they must all leave the women to do their thing. For a male to go stand there is to attempt to gain power and that is exactly the big problem with the men, more then with the women. By trying to stand with the women that man is rather proving he is exactly that kind of problem ! Just stand and wait on the women, remain calm. When the men are calm, they can be very smart and useful in the whole process, the women can use that.
- This would all take place per block of homes roughly, so the women and men of these blocks will form groups of what are going to be the voter groups once the people are properly divided. That dividing and making up the groups is the role the women have. Once the groups are formed then they rule by their mixed majority of men and women. It is quite a simple task, but it can mean chaos/failure if it isn't being accomplished properly. The women should not feel rushed to accomplish it, they can take hours or days or even weeks to get it together: what they want.
- Divide per 50 group houses in each street starting to count from house number 1. Usually: 1,2,3,...48,49,50. Then 51,52,53...99,100. Etc.
- The remainder in a street that does not have at least 50 adults in its group is to find another such group nearby to establish at least 50 persons. If none can be found they can ask for other groups who have more then 50 to join them until they also have at least 50 persons. If this is impossible or if there is only a few in the remainder, they can ask to join other groups nearby.
- If a group has more then 104 adults who want to join in this effort, that group can split in 2 groups each at least 50 persons. For example the part with the lowest house numbers and the part with the highest.
- Eventually all groups should at least have 50 persons, groups with fewer then 50 persons do not count as groups. Either they find enough people or they may want to disperse into the other groups. It is not important that groups have exactly 50 persons, a little bit more is better because if someone leaves you don't immediately lose your right as being an official voter group. Anywhere from 50 to 60 or even 70 (a bit large though) is fine, it is your choice. No matter its size, each group has only the right to send in one representative.

Choosing a representative:


- Choose someone who will be responsible for voting inside the group, and to maintain a list of who is in that group. That person is the administrator of that group, or its housekeeper, it's servant. It has no power whatsoever.
- Then elect a representative. The representative has no power whatsoever, it only has a right to participate in a council once properly elected. The power stays with the voter group, the representative is the servant of the voter group, not its leader, there is no leader of the voter group. The voter group leads itself through its own majorities and who wants to join that group and is allowed to join it by those already in it.

Rights:


- You don't have to participate with anything. You don't have to be part of any voter group, you don't have to attend any meetings of your voter group if you want to be part of one, you can quit any and all voter groups at any time for unstated reasons.
- You can choose of what voter groups you don't want to be a part.
- There is no rule that says a voter group must consist of people in the same area, you can form a voter group from all across the nation if you want to.
- The voter group can elect another voter group administrator/housekeeper any moment.
- The voter group can elect another representative any moment.
- You can only be part of one group. If you try to be part of multiple groups you are guilty of voting fraud and this may not go unpunished.
- Voter groups are only an election model, the voter groups do not comprise production groups or socialising groups or fighting units of whatever else. Voter groups exercise political power in their own interest by influencing their representative. Note that the common interest is part of that interest.
- Every 5 years there is elections of delegates, all across the nation at the same time.
- A delegate must do what it has promised, or the Court can replace it.
- The proceedings of Government are public.
- The Government is obligated to follow the will of the people.
- A block can elect anyone as their representative, the delegate does not have to be part of that voter block or live in the area.

Referendum:


- By gathering 10% of signatures for a Referendum, the Referendum must be held. The non-votes in a referendum are given to the concerning council(s), where each delegate will get an equal share. The combined tally of the votes and taken over non-votes yields a binding decision. This decision can only be broken by another referendum having more votes, but the number of votes that is counted for a previous referendum is slowly lowered when time passes so that a Referendum that happened about 70 years ago will have no greater power then a regular Government delegates decision. Also a two third amount of votes will break any previous referendum on the same issue. This system dynamically combines referendum power with representative power, where non-voters apparently choose to leave the issue to the representative system, who will then indeed actually vote those votes. The deterioration of the power of a previous Referendum means the future is not decided by the (distant) past, and eventually the power slowly comes back to the representatives.

Delegates:


- Delegates are to meet up with at least 50 to form a local council, the local council rules by its own majority on local issues. The local council is not sovereign, sovereignty lies at the national council, the supreme law court, etc. The local council does not own the homes of the people in its area, it does not issue its own money, it does not form its own army, it does not own the businesses in the area, and it may not have power over government activities and organisations that are doing work for a larger area.
- The elected delegates have a right to group in groups of 50 in larger or smaller areas, these 50 sections of delegates can all elect one representative, it must be someone from within that section. They can not elect someone outside that section. This way a council can be formed over larger areas, while within that area the smaller councils still persist. The area size difference between both councils dictate their respective responsibilities. This way local councils could be involved in highly local issues in a neighbourhood. Over the whole city such a city wide council deals with city wide issues, leaving the highly local issues to the local councils. The entire nation is divided into 50 sections of equal numbers of delegates to elect the national council, handling national issues such an the currency, the Constitution, foreign policy, differences between other councils, and so on.
- Because the nation is now divided into 50 section for the national council, it makes sense to elect in each 50th sector a larger area council as well, taking opportunity of the effort to elect the national council.
- Once a delegate has been elected by its voter group, and then was elected by a section of other delegate to represent them also, that delegate can not once more elect someone to represent him/her. There are two steps and no more. A third step is against the law, the police will have to step in and the court will have to dismiss such a practice if it occurs, following the rules of the constitution.

Operation of councils (obligations):


- Councils are to select a name.
- Councils are to publish one week ahead what they will be discussing.
- If they are going to discuss making/changing a law, it has to be announced 2 month prior instead of just 1 week.
- Emergency issues can be handled immediately.
- Councils are to elect a chair person, who will lose its voting right in any debate he/she is chairing.
- Delegates are payed an about average salary for their work per hour, with certain bonuses if they work full time / much.
- Councils are free to make up their own internal operations if the national council does not regulate it, but here some suggestions that may help:

Operation of councils (not obligated):


+ Divide a council into groups of 10 persons or a litle more.
+ Each sub-council will debate with itself proposals that come to its attention.
+ Once a sub-council has made up a proposal that is satisfying to it, the sub-council approaches another sub-council of its own choice.
+ That other sub-council can accept, amend or reject the proposal.
+ On rejection or amendment the proposal comes back on the desk of the first sub-council, who will then reconsider it with the remarks of the other sub-council.
+ Then the same procedure: the sub-council proposes its work to another sub-council of its choice.
+ Finally a proposal might make it past all sub-council and there seems to be at least a numerical majority for it.
+ The council convenes a meeting of all sub-councils.
+ Each sub-councils can elect a spokesperson, someone who can reasonably talk well in public and can represent that sub-councils and the people in it if needed.
+ The chair person arrives at the proposal, then a debate may occur.
+ After the debate the proposal may come to a vote or it may go back for re-consideration.
+ If it is voted upon and it wins a majority, then it is an official decision and it is to be carried out (if that council has the powers needed to make that decision at least, which are limited by the Constitution, the law and the power of other councils.)
- The delegates have no right whatsoever to force a made council decision on anyone, also not on the voter group it is representing. When there is a problem with the actual execution of a decision, forcing it through is a matter for the Courts of Justice and ultimately the police.
- The people always retain the right to change any and all previously made Government decisions, either through referendum or by selecting different representatives, or by convincing the delegates to make a different decision.

National council:


- The national council is the top Government, it makes both laws and decisions.
- The chair person of the national council is not the head of state.

Electoral Committee and head of state:


- Across the entire nations, all adult people can partake in the election for the Electoral Committee. This should yield a list of names who have more or fewer votes.
- The persons not having made it into the 10 persons with most votes can choose to give their votes to someone who did make it into the top 10 (this can matter, see later).
- The person with most votes then has the right to take those votes he/she has more then the person with second most votes, and give these votes to whomever he/she wants in the entire nation.
- This yields a new list of 10 persons who have most votes, these 10 persons are the Electoral Committee. It is this committee that has the sovereign task to set election dates, by its own majority.
- The oldest of these 10 is the Head of State.
- This Head of State has no power over Government, makes no laws, no decisions.
- Once the Head of State has deeply familiarised itself with the Constitution, process that takes about 9 months, the Head of State becomes an inspection agency primarily aimed at corruption within the Government through its right of immediate and full disclosure of all Government information. This right does not extend into private homes.
- The electoral committee must always have at least 6 members, and it must at least achieve having 10 members every 30 years (meaning once one member steps down, there will be Electoral Committee (EC) elections after 30 years, unless 5 in total step down in which case there would be immediate EC elections.)
- The Head of State can take over the Government for one year if the delegates are in chaos, after that year of dictatorial King rule there is one month of regular government rule and then a new election for the EC and therefore head of state.
- The head of state is richly compensated for its services (if any), but the other 9 members of the EC are prohibited from working for the Government (they must have private sector jobs, to make sure they have a more distant and objective position toward the Government and the head of state).
- The Constitution provides in two modes for the nation: either with this active role for the Head of State, or with that role becoming dormant (meaning the Head of State has no special powers beyond the regular EC membership.) Either mode for the nation is to be decided on by a special Referendum.
- The EC and therefore head of state function is not hereditary, elections are open to all.

Constitution:


- The constitution can be altered through a national Referendum, following mentioned procedure for Referendums, but a constitution changing referendum must be announced 5 years before it is to be held.

Comparison neo-roman model:


- The rest of the Government model is more or less what we are already used to in many parts of the world: a government, a police force, a judiciary. Here taken to make up the separation of powers between: action (police), decisions on justice (judges), law making and decision making (councils), inspection (electoral committee and head of state in its role of sovereign inspector), control (referendum power and power to replace delegates any moment).
- There is no separation within the representative government as exists in the neo-roman model between a select ruling few often about 10 in number (often called ministers), a larger body to which those ministers owe responsibility and that can ask for new elections (often called parliament), and what is often seen is a second chamber which looks at law making and can reject a proposal for new law. In the neo-Roman model, these 3 parts of neo-Roman government are all formed from people associated with one of the parties (fractions), so that each fraction gaining enough votes will have its people in all these three parts. One could say that these 3 parts of government are more or less a fake separation, because they are all made from the same clubs that gained the votes. In this new model proposed here, the role of 'ministers' would be that of either servants or sub-council below the national council being given a specific management task in a certain area (for example to print and maintain the currency.) The role of law proposing, reviewing and passing all fall unto the council, but they need to honor the 2 month time restraint which is to make sure there is ample of opportunity to think the laws through. Essentially a law is a repeating decision, as such closely related to singular decisions. The suggested way in which councils could operate, the sub-councils model, also provides the mechanism of proposal, review, sending back, amending, another review, and so on, which is a task the second chamber of Government in the neo-Roman model engages in (often). But in this case it happens within the council, and it happens at least 5 times instead of at least 1.
+ It is not an obligation but a proposal: have the national Government travel around in the nation all the time, convening one week here, then one week somewhere else, so that it never puts down any roots in one particular city. This to prevent the national Government to see itself as a conquering force from that city busy with the task of hauling riches from the rest of the nation to that city.
- Government departments are to be located throughout the nation, this is a Constitutional obligation. It is good for transparency and protocol, it spreads the benefit of spending taxation money and Government associated jobs across the nation, it decentralises power.
+ Most notable changes: the national government would be much smaller in total size: only 50 persons (the Dutch Government comprises a "government" of ministers maybe some 10 persons, a 2nd chamber of 150 persons and a 1st chamber of 75 persons, total 285 persons). The elected persons do not necessarily represent fractions or parties (although that is also still possible), and therefore it is likely the debate would be less between entrenched fractions or party political games for power, it is more individualised. Because the delegates vote for the national Government and not the people directly, it is both easier and cheaper to re-elect the national government, and the campaign people may want to engage in is directed at delegates (mostly). The delegates in turn are expected to do their duty and commit to a more thorough investigation into the competence of their candidates (for whose election they of course will be politically responsibly, and answering for to their voting groups). If the Government is constantly and routinely on the move in the nation, that will be a very obviously different happening as well. In other words: no more parties, or at least if they exist (they are invited to) they are not the backbone of the system.
- The national council selects advice councils for varies issues, by its own discretion and majority, who have no power beyond (publicly stated) advice. This is a measure important for stability and competence. It may be that much informal power resides in these advice councils, while the national council weighs and selects proposals from all sides in accordance with the popular will.

Nation:


- Nations are not to be too large, an ideal size would be in the order of 10 to 30 million people. The Constitution states an upper boundary of 100 million people.
- People who want to set up a new nation from part of the present nation can do so by following the (extensive) Referendum protocols. They must have 1,000,000 people in favour or more, and win several Referendums in that area. After becoming independent they have a time where they can grow into the present nation by winning more referendums. This entire procedure takes many years. There must be two third referendum majorities 5 years apart to become sovereign after another 5 years following the second referendum. In these referendums the non-votes count as against-votes. There must also not be a referendum once with a majority to stay in the country during that time with at least half of all people voting in it. This means that if people really want out in large majority, they can, but not until it is quite well established they actually want to break away. The resources are equally divided between both nations.

More:

- These things are all worked out in much detail, the above is merely a summary of some of its aspects, not touching even on the most important issue of all: the economy. The above only handled the restructuring of the Government. The economic question is handled in 4 sectors: money and investment (common good), company ownership (free market and labour self rule), land and other natural resources (limited use right distributed to all individuals), infrastructure and other non-competitive sectors (common good). For all materials (all free), see http://www.socialism.nl (free trade in labour, services and products, free dictatorial ownership over entrepreneurial companies until the starter leaves and company has 10 or more full time employees.)

Transition to new Government:


- The police and courts should remain in operation and enforce the laws. Presumably there are no laws that forbid people to combine and organise, but if they do exist they are to be broken. The police and courts could refer to natural law, respect for the people, or being overwhelmed.
- The police and the courts should remain in operation. The laws are not suspended at any time, the new Government will take over most laws without any moment of there being no laws. All laws remain standing unless the councils actively change them in due course of their protocol.
- The new Government does not attempt to take over the buildings of the old Government, but either is not located in any particular building or if it wants to attempts to find another location. If the old Government wishes to vacate its buildings out of its free will, then these could become part of the governed public buildings under the new Government system.
- If the new Government fails then the old Government continues as if nothing has happened.
- If the new Government succeeds there will be two Governments. It would not be the first time in history that has happened.
- That Government which organises most people should be the ruling Government in case of conflicts. Ideally that type of Government that is not favoured by the majority melts away and merges with the newly formed Government. Both politically, organisationally, and infra-structurally.
- It may be that for quite some time there are two Governments, or that there is disagreement about what Government represents the majority. This disagreement may not be taken away in case of a Referendum with a close result, or if there was some kind of manipulation happening (likely to be claimed anyway).
- If the new Government is not the commonly accepted ruling Government by clearly a large majority, they should probably do best to take on a cooperative and service oriented stance with respect to the other Government, without sacrificing their independence and the potential sovereignty inherent in the organisation once completed. It is best not to attempt to steer the councils into conflict with a persisting old Government. Both Governments may view each other as their own advice council. If the other Government takes a hostile stance, this may cost them their remaining credibility, it would be a matter of time until they melt away. Over time the new Government is likely to get its things in order and work smoothly, this should mean gaining credibility and therefore power. Playing nice and for the long term is therefore probably best, while attempting to behave like a true Government should, which can also be taken as practising the new system. Power could come dancing into the quarters of the new Government because it wants to.
- The old Government shouldn't be completely dissolved until it is absolutely clear the new Government is up to the task at hand. It should be possible to quickly reinstall the old system with its people, even in a few hours, as if nothing had happened, just in case.

Non-Sovereign prototype Government: slow burn revolution.
--------------------------------------------------------

o Considering that once the enemies of justice, peace & prosperity for all will probably launch vicious oppression and wars when they see our victory approaching while they still have power, we must be ready at the soonest possible to do the complete revolution and take over the nation, some nations, many nations, most nations, all nations, through, by and for the people that live there.
* Whenever someone decides he or she likes the proposed constitution, he / she attempts to join in with 50 + 5 reserve = 55 others who also like this proposed constitution, to form a voter group.
* It does not matter who assembles across the nation in a voter group, the constitution allows for any grouping, although some residency correlation is nice (people who live closer have a reason to join in the same group, but that is not a rule that must be followed: optional.)
* Any group, any political affiliation, any loose individuals, can join into voter groups and offer delegates, they all meet each other as equals under the same system with the same rights and responsibilities. (For extremely opposite groups keep in mind the right to form separate nations under the system later once it succeeds. Decide on a peace and unity for the moment, in order to benefit from that later, or it may all fail.)
* New voter-groups are not seeded with already organised persons, to allow the new group to form their own culture and ideas. Already organised people can assist as advisors to new groups, but they should remain organised in what voter group they are already organised. (This to prevent insidious control over many voter groups by a small group of people, who might end up steamrolling / brainwashing people into what they believe.) Leave it open, leave it to its own. If it goes against what someone wants then leave it to that group, ultimately the delegates debate & vote in the councils. It's all taken care off, live & let live.
* The group votes for a housekeeper and a delegate, and furnishes all with a position patch in the Sovereign colours dark blue on white (see elsewhere), because even though they are non-Sovereign at the moment, they are the full prototype of the Sovereign Government. Once the decision is made to be sovereign, that voter group is part of the sovereign constitutional Government of the nation.
* To denote their non-Sovereignty, a small red ribbon is placed diagonally across some of the symbol, in a way that it can later easily be removed.
* These position symbols don't need to be worn, not even once, but it is a good thing if they are at least ready to stabilise a possible full revolution (see especially sheets 2 and 3 for sudden total revolution).
* Once 50 delegates are chosen they form councils, and so on, all the way to the country council. Say as a rule a prototype country council gets elected once there are at least 50 local councils (50 * 50 = 2500 persons). This to prevent too many separate country councils to emerge throughout the nation.
* An EC is elected once there is a country council.
* In the case of empires, the local province is taken to be 'the nation'. Something of the size that fits between 1 and 100 million people (ideally 10 to 30 million people at the most). In large empires every geographic/boundary unit of that size would set up its own unified prototype sovereign country council.
* I think it is better not to attempt to resolve complicated historical issues of land ownership of separate ethnic peoples: first let's change the model all together 'hand in hand,' and then once the calm is established there should be time to resolve these issues peacefully. To try to do both at the same time risks civil war, and then everyone gets nothing. In return the case of peoples fewer then the Constitutional minimum for separation is heard and awarded in principle, but for this these people must have petitioned the country council before it becomes sovereign (in some way), or else the Constitution would have taken effect over them too, and their breaking away without doing the proper protocol would be a bad precedent of law breaking right away. If they have petitioned then the Constitution has not landed fully on them yet, until that petition has fully been reviewed and processed. Without that, the Constitution would take effect, which would lock smaller peoples in. Then their only way out would be to change the Constitution or revolution.
-> I hereby petition on behalf of all traditional native peoples, that their case is heard and awarded, before the Constitution has landed on their lands taking them in if this is against their will, even if they have helped in setting up this Constitution, even on their territories (provisionally, for the sake of the day). (Let's say that any land issues 'before the Constitution locks in' can still be resolved outside of the Constitution within the first 20 years of the Constitution achieving Sovereignty in those lands. In other words: the Constitution takes 20 years to land on the land after achieving sovereignty, which is the same time it takes to achieve a new territory under the Constitution. Nations can of course decide to add provisions of all kinds to the Constitution, change it in all ways wanted, which is of course the way it should work in general ... it's an open system.)
* If several country-councils find each other in the same nation, they are to merge their provincial divisions (after they verified the other system), and then set up a unified country council. (This is all separate from any group-internal constitutional system groups may be using, those group internal structures remain unaffected (obviously).)
* Taking sovereignty means full revolution, see also sheets 2 and 3.
* The prototype non-Sovereign country council proposes to take true Sovereignty to the grand country council (that is all delegates combined, who vote individually on an issue), the grand country council takes the matter to all voter groups. The voters vote individually, the delegates take these votes to the grand country council and add them up. The majority in each voter group is found and these one vote per voter groups are added up, and then the delegates vote on the issue one vote per delegate. These three results are debated.

There should be a strong ruling support from the people at large, being organised into this system already or not, or else an attempt to take true sovereignty could fail. Ideally the people at large pressure in great number for the taking of sovereignty by the new constitution and its prototype Government (best these people can do is actually join the system !). It is important to get the police and justice system on our side.

It may very well be the case that by waiting with taking sovereignty we will be afforded sovereignty. If things go right all we have to do is wait, and eventually the people will scream and beg for the new system to take over, and the police and much of the justice systems is stampeding to do the bidding of the new true Government. Anything short of that, and we risk throwing everything to the wind, because the sitting Government may retaliate by outlawing us and hunting us, to protect its own power under claims of insurrection or whatever.

Once sovereignty is taken, pursue the correct protocol (change all delegates, see elsewhere.) Sovereignty is claimed by removing the red ribbon over the position symbol.

Sovereignty means that whatever the councils decide gets done, within the limit of its powers under the constitution at least, regardless of what any other person or groups say.

* When in doubt: join. Everything merges into the sovereign Government of the people.

[_] Setting up the Government departments, establish the new system.

      [_] ^ Decide on what Government departments there should be, nations typically have departments for the major and routine tasks of Government. In this system it is proposed each Department is overseen by a council of 50 persons at the pleasure of the Government. This council can appoint subordinate heads who decide on what happens further down in the organization, or multiple heads for multiple sub-departments. How the department organizes its work is not necessarily of national interest and therefore the department and/or sub-departments can also organize their own internal democracy. The national government, the 50 person council ruling the department and the heads it can appoint decide on what happens and within what parameters, an internal organization democracy can decide on how it happens as long as it does not interfere with the national government needs.

      [_] ^ Find and ask people if they want to serve in the department councils.

      [_] ^ Softly set up a new democratic controlled finance system, which is to have a great diversity of funds. Think of it as farming, money is water and companies are crops. The water has to be distributed carefully, generally in droplets, not in one location suddenly in a giant amount. Tend the plants carefully, and also giving small loans easily to the many to have many new company shoots (ideally on collateral of course).

Notes

Temporary currency can possibly be denominated in value of average work-time at moment of payment for future taxation to the Government, + 10%. Such certificates could potentially have immediate 'real' value; since they could later be redeemed saving the owner taxation-costs. All fiat money is like this, but if such certificates are fixed to a working hour they could have a more solid value, perhaps attracting greater trust thus value. They could be traded as money. This system could give the new Government immediate real spending power, and attract it to the sovereignty by certificate owners' need for it being redeemable. Chart of action, the further down in this chart the fewer people need to engage in this action.


left: Black/white group symbols (voter-group, 1st council, 2nd council, sub-councils).
right: Blue on white voter-group system shoulder insignia
centre: Delegates-voter-group symbol.

Note: the sub-council system has the council divided in 5 sub-councils, who debate which each other and pass each other their ideas on matters on the table. The public is obviously privy to all that is going on, and therefore has a chance to interject its opinions. This system is not part of the proposed Constitutional model but could help with efficiency, transparency, making it more democratic and undercut power of minor tyrants.

Armed uprising (o-5)

Flag protocol: this is the scheme-5 flag or "green flag," which is used to identify this system. The 5 dots below signify freedom of speech, the dots are individual, while the circle shape in the middle denotes assembly. These two rights should be "above ground," which means they are respected in the area. If these rights are not respected they are buried below the green bar. The flag is either shown with the green bar up or down, depending on how these rights are judged in the area by the unit who flies the flag. The words "freedom of speech, freedom of assembly (for us and our opponents)" are ideally in the local language or the language of the unit in question.

The goals of the armed uprising is to secure the freedom of (political) speech and (political) assembly, because with those two rights in good order all other problems can be resolved by debating and voting. To keep these armies proper, they appoint their top and 2nd in command military commanders by an internal democratic system. One such group with a self-coherent democracy is called a fist, its size is from 2 fighters until 1 Army (~200 000 persons). See illustration for the ranking system of these armies. Small fists use only direct voting, middle sized fists up to 2500 persons (one regiment) use an adapted voter-group and/or supreme council size to fit their needs. Larger groups don't bother with setting up any councils except the supreme council for the fist, unless there is ample of time to train with these things as a way to get familiar with the new system. During training a complete council system can be set up, which then decides on the training that day. The internal democracy is called the House Command. The smaller councils are not needed to run the war, which his run by the military hierarchy, the Military Command.

Fists can merge into larger fists by merging their house command structure (see sub-council model above under o-2). A fist could also remain a fist and subordinate its top office into a larger fist. One army (wo)man is only part of one house command. When a military hierarchy integration is desired by roughly equal sized fists than the house commands can decide they will vote together on the military structure that is above all their individual sizes, while retaining exclusive authority over their own fist command. Such voting should be weighed by the strength of the units, rather then one fist one vote. The fist of such size naturally having a certain rank controls that rank by its house command. Smaller militarily integrated fists do not participate in such appointment.

If top command is taken out of action (killed for example), the rank below have to temporarily rule by majority vote until single head command is restored by the house command. One could integrate several fists of equal size this way as well, which has an echo of the mutual strategic command. One could initiate cooperation like this and later install a top military commander for that unit. First testing out each other, and then bestowing rank properly with better understanding. If decisions are not decisive enough that way they appoint one of their own as the temporary head (while the house command is being informed and works to establish command properly...)

The strategic command needs of several armies are serviced, if so desired by the Generals and/or house commands, is serviced by high staff Generals without direct command, who operate as a group (or however they see fit). The relative ranking of these high generals is not that important, but can help in case of time pressure. The ranks above lieutenant General (3 star General) are for the duration of the job, a lieutenant General is therefore the highest personal rank in this system.

A special branch is trained to handle emergency Government after victory. It is to set up a system of civil government that is in line with what that people want. That system may not be what is proposed here, they should be capable of setting up anything that the people are likely to desire. Note that if the DAVID239+ system is installed the people can still use that to change it into what they really want. The people may want to use wearing symbols as a way to vote on this during Victory, because it will not be so simple to determine what public will really is. I hope the people will not be too outraged if a DAVID239+ system is installed against public will, which is of course a good chance if this system is used by the bulk of the military uprising, and instead use the mechanisms it gives the public to change that according to their will. They should hurry because once something is entrenched it becomes hard to change. Then again, is this system really so bad ? You be the judge of that, national diversity is certainly something to be desired. This special branch is called 'purple brigade(s)'.

After 3 month the mandate of purple brigades ends one way or the other, they ought to both step away from power and be dismissed from power.

Training is to be conducted in such a way that human dignity is preserved. Ideally people that already know each other form small groups, up to Sergeant. When a real uprising and larger integration becomes necessary they can integrate themselves into larger groups, either retaining their independent fist status (their own house command and military hierarchy), or merge into larger fists (unite their house commands). By being with people you know you can prevent your energies to become used by corrupt uprising systems.

A default uprising is for example a 10% of the people, respecting obviously the proposed constitutional age for this (Dutch saying "emergency breaks law"). A casual training of only 2.5 hours a week should already be enough to cast the ghost of these Armies over the lands, and make the would be tyrants toss and turn in dread in their sleep and tremble on their knees ...

In this system a fighter becomes an unranked fighter after having walked 40 kilometres within 24 hours, with 20 kilo gram on his/her back, after which hitting at least once with a projectile weapon a target the size of a torso. The fighter will have to determine for himself whether he will be willing and capable of murdering for the cause of free speech and justice if it becomes necessary. War is murder, it is horrible. Not waging a revolutionary war against a murderous tyrant can end up being worse. Trained soldiers and officers can blend sideways into the hierarchy.

These armies do never torture for any reason, and respect the human dignity of people taken prisoner. When fighting reactionary forces beware of every possible trick they could think of to see action. It is important not to torture, among other reasons, because if prisoners are badly treated the enemy will tend to be less easily persuaded into a surrender.

Military ranking structure: fighter ranks until sergeant (including), field officers major and colonel, personally held ranks until lieutenant General (including) ranks for duration of appointment captain General and higher. Maximum fist size up to captain General (Army). Mutual strategic command Generals are staff Generals without command advising the captain generals. Corporal General and higher are flag officers who must have a character capable both of surrender, or fighting on to the death for eternal Glory in the halls of Remembrance. The 2nd class is yellowish/gold the 1st class is light-grey/silver coloured, 1st/2nd class fighters silver.

Reaching the enemy rank and file with the truth and a better future, the goal these armies fight for "freedom of speech & freedom of assembly for us and our political opponents" may help persuading the enemy fighters and officers to join our side.

These armies do not conduct ideological campaigns within themselves, also not for a DAVID system, because that will possibly repel people who disagree with all those details from rising up within or with our armies. The idea is simply to establish these two rights, speech and assembly, no more and no less. Uniting behind the right to dissent, as it where.

These fighting forces (fists) primarily go off the directions of Brigade Generals or higher commanders, particularly when there is doubt about what actions should be taken. In general smaller units then a Brigade only exist as a potential but do not actually engage in actions outside the strategies of Brigade sized strength in the area. This is necessary to disown wild actions of small units. Note that this system as proposed here, these colours, are likely going to be abused by false flag attacks. An interesting way to combat people who commit atrocities and then try to blame us with their actions is to engage in an extensive investigation into each such false flag attack to expose the guilty party. We might even engage in guarding targets that might be attacked by a group pretending to be us, and engage in immediate investigation of such false flag forces to take them out of action while they haven't even been able to hurt us. Educating the public about false flag attacks may help to make the public less gullible to these strategies. The most likely source of false flag attacks as well as other forms of repression are those who stand to loose when the DAVID system is implemented (money, land, ownership of companies: power). A ruling class often operates loosely, each one pursuing their own interests: hence if one parts conducts an atrocity wearing our colours and leaving some signs pretending to be us, then ruling class media outlets might jump to the opportunity to lie about us even if they have no direct connections with the terrorist networks. They aide the terrorist units because they are both in the same front and recognise a way to hurt us. Perhaps we could even buy information on where we will be attacked. We have to tirelessly denounce terrorism as a strategy and individual acts of terrorism, both to our own forces and the public at large. (See further http://www.law4.org/post/004/phalanx)

Adapted the ranking structure for a possible police force. The "3rd class" ranks are red, they are for non-combat elements which might need a rank to have command to do some job (for example a medical doctor may need to have a command in a hospital, non-military people in a supply chain (optional)).

Military conquest (o-6)

Military conquest is an historical mission of a people, and is therefore essentially governed by their own creativity and not by this system. However it may be a good idea to use the laws about a new nation suggested in the Constitution to deal with the new borders. That way if people end up being inside what wants to be a new Sovereign nation they can vote on whether they want that. It would prevent a minority armed force to declare a new nation over more people who do not want it.

Resistance (o-7)

During ongoing tyranny it may not be possible to organise significant armies (yet), but it may be possible to organise in secret. The method proposed here is to use groups of about 5 persons, led by themselves. They try to behave as perfect and tactical as possible with respect to their secrecy, using code words and signals and having acceptable explanations for their whereabouts and actions, and B (and C) plans to switch to if the conditions are too risky. It is probably best only to accept a new member if everyone agrees to that first.

One should probably simply stop interacting with other groups or seek connections with other groups unless one can be certain it is not an attempt to infiltrate the resistance with fake resistance. It may be impossible to achieve such confidence with certainty. The tyranny will probably at least use a dual approach: direct open repression, and setting up extensive efforts to recruit people for the resistance including for a time doing some damage to their tyranny in order to attract people into their clutches. Some risks in resistance will have to be taken, because if the enemy can win by having everyone suspect everyone then they win by that effect, which is an effect they will probably want to promote in society (the baseless suspicion between people).

Protecting truth (o-8)

When it is not even possible to organise a cell resistance, then individuals could attempt to shield as much of the truth, for example these documents, until it becomes possible to act.

Schematic of action process
From open society:               From tyrannical society:
  --->              start          <---

(fair trade) o-1           o-7       (cell resistance)
(funds)        o-2       o-6         (army conquest)

                    C-3        (Constitutional Assembly, 3 laws)
                    C-7        (Consolidated Constitution, 7 laws)
                    C-50        (Condensed Constitution, 50 laws)
                    C-239         (Constitution with 239 parts)
                    end

An open society (like the Netherlands) approaches this from the left side, but also organises parts on the right side starting from o-5 in case it ends in civil war anyway (attempt at tyranny.) A closed society (like China) approaches it from the right side, and once it starts to win starts to organize things on the left side also, whenever it can.

Both roads end in o-4, revolution. This constitutes the new Government, in councils. That condition is itself a representation of the 'consolidated redux' Constitution version, a 3 law Constitution. Note that it adds a Referendum power, and that this is the first struggle against only having the councils there, to secure the will of the people over the Government. Hence it isn't a void step either, because pretences are one thing, but now the people may experience whether they do have the power or not. Whether it is all a scam or not. The first consolidation of the revolution is then the C-3 Constitution, especially its social substance above claims and words. Then a huge raging debate may occur about where to go next, if there are differences. If the model here is agreed to, it then becomes the 7 law Constitution, which adds a democratised free trade economy to a democratic Government. How do to that then exactly, one could use the condensed Constitution. But how to do that, one can then look at the 239 version, which is detailed enough.

A bit like a 9 armed candle holder maybe. Convenient to have the whole system in a simple symbol, and each has 4 steps so this is also easy to remember.

Before the last month of the delay starts, the ratification Referendum can be done again, the Referendum with most people casting a vote will decide. _1.1.b Scope The constitution is the supreme set of rules. _1.1.b-1 False law Laws and Government decisions conflicting with the Constitution are void. Police is not to enforce, the Judiciary is to reject, and the Government is to retract such laws and decisions. _1.1.b-2 Unity of Law The constitution is one and the same across the entire Nation. _1.1.c Flag The flag of the Constitution is divided in a top and a bottom half. In the middle a shape resembling an Omega letter. This represents a pair of scales, symbol for democracy, it is the peace flag of the Constitution. The peace flag of the Constitution is to be displayed alone by itself or in the highest position above an identity flag. _1.1.c-1 Flag of war When a Government is at war - or orders to use weapons greater in power then needed to kill a lion to subdue other human beings - all the Constitutional flags in possession of the Government are to be turned upside down. This represents a bull head with horns, symbol for war, for when the Government is at war, it is the war flag of the Constitution. The war flag of the Constitution is shown under a flag which denotes the identity at war. Nobody is to accept any order from any commander to wage war without the official widespread display of the war flag. Exception: see Article 3.2.b-3.1, Weapons Authorization. _1.1.c-1.1 Flag democracy A Constitutional peace flag signals a wish for peace and not war, referring to the the identity of the identity flag if one is shown. A Constitutional war flag - which is the Constitutional war flag below an identity flag - signals a wish for war action by that identity. A reversed Constitutional peace flag without an identity flag above it has an unidentifiable meaning, it is a display of error on the part of the display construction. With the Constitutional flag display can be displayed ribbons in several colors. A black ribbon signals there is not currently war or peace as it is wished by the Constitutional flag shown. A white ribbon signals there is currently war or peace as is wished by the Constitutional flag shown. A blue ribbon signals a wish for change of the Government identified by the identity flag. A green ribbon signals a wish for the present Government identified by the identity flag, to remain in power. A golden ribbon signals a wish for King Rule in the Country identified by the identity flag. See Article 1.4.a, King Rule. Articles 1.2: Territory _1.2.a Territory The Country assembles not more then 100.000.000, one hundred million, potential voters. _1.2.a-1 New Territory Groups of 1 million residents in a consecutive geographic area can step out of the Country if they achieve a Two Third Majority in a Referendum where abstentions count as votes against stepping out, two consecutive times with an interval of 5 years between them; without there being a Majority against leaving the Country with at least half of the local people voting in it, within 10 years after the first of the two consecutive Referendums. Then the region is independent and out of the Country, 10 years after the first Referendum. These Referendums must be widely published in the concerning area, or they will be invalid. The New Country is formed by taking with it an amount of natural resources equal to the combined total of resource rights for the people who come to live in the new territory, including an equal amount of non-distributed natural resources - such as nature and public land - according to the percentage of people that will be living there. _1.2.a-1.1 New Territory, lost When the new country contains fewer then 1 million people before 100 years have gone by, the area falls back to the original country, unless the original country decides to reject it. _1.2.a-1.2 New Territory, border The border of both Countries will not develop enclosed sovereign areas. It will be a simplified line, in such a way that both Countries will have a coherent shape necessary to easily determine in what Country a person is. _1.2.a-1.3 New Territory, more An area bordering a New Territory will join that New Territory before 10 years have passed of it having become independent, if they reach a Majority in Referendum where abstentions count as votes against joining, if the New Territory accepts the application to join. _1.2.a-2 Larger Territory The Country Council, see Article 3.1.d-5, Country Council, can accept a new area into the country. _1.2.a-3 Territorial Limits The territory extends as far as the eye can see into uninhabitable territory - such as the sea - with respect to that right for other Nations. _1.2.a-4 International Territory When a petition of Nations representing more then Two Third of the world population is offered regarding an issue on International Territory, the petition will be read before the Country Council, see Article 3.1.d-5, Country Council. Articles 1.3: Nation of Law _1.3.a Equality All people living in the Country are equal under the Law. None are above and none are below the Law. _1.3.a-1 Lasting Freedom When no National Laws in the common interest, no decisions to favor the common interest from bodies created by the Constitution in the common interest, curtail a person its freedom, that person is assumed to have an active right to make any decision desired. A person can not lose or sell their right to make decisions: a person can not sell itself into slavery. A person cannot lose or sell their entitlements and responsibilities awarded to them by the law. Articles 1.4: State of Chaos _1.4.a King Rule The Electoral Committee declares a state of chaos when the Country is in Chaos, at which time the King takes over the Government and the making of non-Constitutional Law. The Electoral Committee can end the state of chaos at any time. The state of chaos lasts not longer then one year and one day, after which there is one month of normal Governmental rule. One month after the end of the state of chaos, new elections for the Electoral Committee are being held, unless the condition of Article 1.4.a-2, King Rule, Stability, has been met. See Article 3.1.c-1, Electoral Committee. See Article 3.1.c-1.8, King Elect. _1.4.a-1 King Rule, Banner During the state of chaos, all the flags in possession of the Government are to fly a golden banner. _1.4.a-2 King Rule, Stability When the same King is re-elected after a period of King Rule, then gets another period of King Rule within one year after that election, and after that second closely following period of King Rule is again elected King, then the obligation in Article 1.4.a, King Rule, to elect a new Electoral Committee after a period of King Rule is suspended until the King loses its Kingship. ________________________________________________________________ Chapter 2: Structure of Individual Protections Articles 2.1: Individual Protections _2.1.a No Harm The human body can not be harmed. Not for the purpose of of extracting information (torture), or for the purpose of punishment, or any other purpose against the will of that particular human body (person). _2.1.a-1 Compensation The People or in their absence the Government will set compensations in case of convicting innocent people. _2.1.a-2 Animals Animals are not to be treated with cruelty. _2.1.b Free speech People have the right to express any opinion they want. _2.1.b-1 No insult People have a right not to be repeatedly, apparently directly, apparently purposefully insulted in public areas, in a difficult way to escape. _2.1.c Freedom of Assembly People are free to assemble themselves in organized groups. Groups who have as their aim the changing of the Government and/or society system in whatever way, can not be disbanded because of their ideas. _2.1.d Property Right Your legal property can not be taken away from you. You can not take away the legal property of someone. _2.1.e Privacy A person has a natural right to Privacy of his personal belongings, body and home. See also Article 3.2.b-4, Police and Privacy. Articles 2.2: Justice _2.2.a Fair trial All people when sufficiently suspected of a crime are tried by an objective, impartial and competent judiciary. Equal cases are treated equally. In case of a public prosecutor, neither the prosecution or Judges know the defendant personally or have a direct relation with the defendant. In case of two claiming parties, the Judge knows neither personally or has a direct relation with either. Justice is done according to the published Laws that held on the moment the crime occurred. _2.2.a-1 Presumed innocent People suspected of crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty. _2.2.a-2 Equal pleading effort Someone suspected of crime has the right to plead its case at least for one and a half the amount of time as its accuser(s) are pleading. _2.2.a-3 Competent Defense Each person accused of a crime appearing before a Court is either represented or assisted by someone competent in the Law and evidence. This competent defense will attempt to make it appear that the accused person is not guilty. Judgement about guilt must be left completely in the hands of the Judge, to no extend is it the job of the defense. When the Judge believes the defense is significantly lacking in the quality of its defense under the Law, the Judge will resolve the matter after consultation with another Judge, until a competent defense and objective Justice is being provided. _2.2.a-4 Observe Trial Trial proceedings can always be observed by anyone willing, unless vital interests of presumed victims or accused person(s) or witnesses would be significantly undermined beyond the court case, not including the potential of being mistaken as being guilty by the public, in which case the doors may be closed. Doors of a Court case can never be closed for someone who is a Law Court Judge (see Article 3.2.a-3, Law Court) or observers appointed directly by and reporting only to a Law Court Judge. _2.2.a-5 Trial not Punishment The proceedings of the trial may not themselves become a form of punishment, beyond a reasonable duty to work with the Judiciary as an innocent person, in the common interest. Persons who have previously been convicted and been to prison for a crime of greed, may be held in less comfortable environment during trial. A valid trial only occurs once with the same evidence. _2.2.b Fair punishment People being punished to have their freedom of movement removed, have the right to ask for segregation from other such convicted people for the duration of the punishment. _2.2.b-1 Fair punishment, reading People convicted are never denied the right to read commonly available materials. Articles 2.3: Additional rights for Children _2.3.a Right to be cared for A child which does no longer wish to live with its parents, is cared for by the Government. A child which wants to live with its parents, is released to the parents. A child has the right to know who its parents are and where they are. The government can not keep parents away from a child if that child does not want its parents to be kept away. The child in Government care does not pay, at any time, for the care it receives, but has the right to hold Government responsible to the same extend parents are responsible for their children, at any time. ________________________________________________________________ Chapter 3: Structure of Government Articles 3.1: Structure of Government _3.1.a Government Intention The Government decisions are the accurate representation of the present will of the People. The task of the elected Government is to find out and carry out the will of the People. The elected delegates together attempt to steer the Government Majority into accordance with the will of the People, and avoid going against the present will of the People. _3.1.a-1 Declare opinion The elected delegates express their personal opinions of the moment regarding issues the Government is concerning itself with, or the area they concern themselves with in particular. _3.1.a-2 Task Accountability If a delegate or a representative elected to Government by the delegates, does not perform a clear and specific task it claimed to carry out after being elected, then the court of Justice will appoint someone most willing and sufficiently able to carry out the task in its place, using the same authority as the replaced representative. _3.1.b Referendum The People make direct decisions by way of referendum, voting of all willing people individually and directly. The number of abstentions is divided by the number of representatives in the body concerned with the referendum, each representative is allowed to add that number of votes to the option of its choice. The abstentions-adjusted result determines fractions with which options won votes in the total of votes. Decisions are made by majority of the votes that want at least a certain minimum decision, the greatest common denominator. Representatives can continuously change how their abstentions have voted. New representatives take over the power of representatives that have left the governing body when determining what abstentions have voted. Exception: see Article 3.1.c-1.1.1, Electoral Committee, mandate eject. Exception: see Article 1.2.a-1, New Territory. _3.1.b-1 Initiative Referendum The People can take the initiative to have a referendum, by showing signatures on a Petition for a percentage of the People. A percentage of local people for a local Referendum if the issue is local, a National percentage is the issue is National. The minimum percentage on a Petition to have a Referendum: ..[10%]. _3.1.b-2 Scope Referendum, particular When a referendum on a particular issue breaks laws, the scope of the result of the referendum is limited to the decision made. _3.1.b-3 Scope Referendum, law When a referendum explicitly sets a new law, the new law can not be curtailed by any other non-Constitutional law or Government decisions. _3.1.b-4 Transparency All referendums are to be announced clearly in the same location, in generally understandable and sufficiently short language. _3.1.b-5 Decision Repealed All decisions of Government can be repealed by the People at any and all times, about any and all decisions. _3.1.b-6 Representatives Repealed All members of Government, elected delegates and employees, can be ejected from their post any moment by the People using a Referendum. The People or in their absence the majority of elected delegates appoint a replacement. When it concerns a delegate, a replacement remains in its position at the pleasure of the People or in their absence the Government, until the next elections for the Government body it concerns. Voters thus deprived of representation remain deprived until the next elections. _3.1.b-7 Authority The outcome of a referendum containing two thirds (2/3) of the People's - not abstention adjusted (see Article 3.1.b, Referendum) - vote for a particular choice, has the highest Authority, but it does not circumvent Constitutional duties required to change the Constitution (see Article 1.1.a, Power.) _3.1.b-7.1 Vote Decay Referendums follow a rule of decay in time, so that their power eventually becomes nothing, but has a clearly defined power in the near future. _3.1.b-7.1.1 Vote Decay, speed Referendums lose present-day power with the same speed that people on average die. _3.1.b-7.1.2 Vote Decay, addition Referendums on the same issue but different in time have their numbers not added together, but the largest decay adjusted count of people in favor of a certain choice, retains the monopoly of the present-day count, the lesser absolute count majority being ignored, unless the condition of article Article 3.1.b-7, Authority has been met. _3.1.c Electing Government Delegates are elected every ..[5]. years. _3.1.c-1 Electoral Committee Elections are ordered to occur at a date set by the Electoral Committee. _3.1.c-1.1 Electoral Committee, mandate The Electoral Committee is always elected in whole, unless a two third majority Referendum as defined in Article 3.1.b-7, Authority overrides this rule to replace selected members. Each voter votes for one person. Each person who gathers votes, but is not in the top 10, has the opportunity to award all its votes to one person in the top 10; these votes can not be sold or bought. The person who then has most votes in the Electoral Committee is allowed to award the votes that it has in excess of a majority over the person who has second most votes, to anyone, whether already standing in the Electoral Committee elections, or not; these votes can not be sold or bought. After this, the 10 persons with most votes comprise the Electoral Committee. The number of members is minimum 6 and normally 10. The Electoral Committee reaches its normal strength at least once every 30 years, through elections. When it has less then 6 members, there are- immediate Electoral Committee elections. See Article 3.1.c-1.1.1, Electoral Committee, mandate eject, for re-election before the mandate period is over. _3.1.c-1.1.1 Electoral Committee, mandate eject To eject one or more members of the Electoral Committee, a Referendum to eject, replace, or re-elect has to have more votes for change which are not compensated by votes against ejection, replacement or re-election, then the time adjusted - time adjusted as defined in Article 3.1.b-7.1, Vote Decay - value of the total of votes for all currently elected members of the Electoral Committee. It also has to have more votes then a previous such Referendum (time ajdusted.) When this condition is met, the entire Electoral Committee is re-elected, unless the condition of Article 3.1.b-7, Authority has also been met, in which case the outcome of the Referendum is to be carried out. The Government has no vote in the Electoral Committee re-election Referendum, it does not fill the abstentions, an exception to Article 3.1.b, Referendum. See also Article 3.1.c-1.1, Electoral Committee, mandate. _3.1.c-1.2 Electoral Committee, vote The Electoral Committee decides by majority vote, always a majority of 10. At least 6 members must support the decision. When no majority can be reached, new elections are assumed to have been ordered. The vote is public. _3.1.c-1.3 Electoral Committee, sovereign The Electoral Committee does not order new elections if neither the Government nor the People seem to want it. Its decision to order new elections can not be repealed however, neither by the Government or the People, and not by removing the Electoral Committee members from their position. When in doubt on the wishes of the People, the Electoral Committee calls for new Elections. _3.1.c-1.4 Electoral Committee, free Electoral Committee members have no other obligations to the Government, are not employed by the Government. Exception: Article 3.1.c-1.8, King Elect. _3.1.c-1.5 Electoral Committee, salary Electoral Committee members receive one month median salary per year. Exception: Article 3.1.c-1.8, King Elect. _3.1.c-1.6 Electoral Committee, immunity The members of the Electoral Committee can not be interfered with in performing their Electoral Committee duty by the Government, the Police, the Justice system, or other Government agencies, etc. _3.1.c-1.7 Police Loyalty Every individual policeman is directly Loyal to the Electoral Committee when it can concern the duties for which the Electoral Committee exists: such as ordering elections, changing Government through elections. _3.1.c-1.8 King Elect The oldest electoral Committee member is crowned after three months the King or Queen, Head of State. The day of a new King is a National Holiday when only emergency workers work. See also Article 1.4.a, King Rule. _3.1.c-1.8.1 Duty of the King The King or Queen will write with the hand, in the morning, one Law of the Constitution, such as this Law `Duty of the King,' until one full copy of this Constitution is completed. Then, when the evening comes, the King or Queen will write their version of the Law of the Constitution that they wrote in the morning, at least different in words, but optionally different in meaning as well. The King may choose one day in the week for resting. _3.1.c-1.8.2 Sovereign Inspector The Elected King or Queen has total and immediate access to all Government and Private Company places and information, from the time the King has completed its hand written copy of the Constitution, to the time a new King or Queen has been Elected. The King receives the Insignia of Sovereign Inspector after completing its Constitution copies, see Article 3.1.c-1.8.1, Duty of the King. The King exalts Emissaries Of The King by allowing to carry the Insignia of Emissary Of The King. The Emissaries of the King exercise the access of the King on its behalf. Any economic damage that might have occurred because of an inspection by the King or its Emissaries is reimbursed by the Government. _3.1.c-1.8.3 Speaking to the King No person speaks to the King bearing Insignia, without the permission of the King. No person denies the King bearing insignia, its rightful immediate access. Whomsoever insults the King in either of these two ways, has attacked the Nation. Such as who get in the way of the pleasure of the King, are thrown in jail on tasteless food and water for one month. _3.1.c-1.8.4 Protect the Throne The present King may buy out a person standing for Electoral Committee membership election. Once that person has accepted the sale, this person will not stand in that election. _3.1.c-1.8.5 Protect the King The King or Queen may choose up to 100 persons, either willing or from the army, that will protect the King, wherever it is or needs to be. _3.1.c-1.8.6 End of Reign The King's office can be removed by a Two Third Referendum majority. If in 130 years, the King has not needed to come into action to save the Nation, the last King will complete its reign and then the office of King will become dormant. _3.1.c-1.8.7 Start of Reign A Referendum majority can start up the King's office. _3.1.c-1.8.8 King Income The Head of State, King or Queen, receives a monthly income an equal amount of times the average monthly income as the amount of times for maximum wealth in Article 8.2.a-8, Capital Monopoly. It is also awarded the use of wealth no less then four (4) times the Constitutional maximum, payed for by the Government, which is not counted as personal wealth. The King or Queen may privately own one third more then allowed for non Royalty, until its death and regardless of Royal status. _3.1.c-1.8.9 King Election, fraud From the start of the day of a new King, any procedural errors or fraud in electing the Electoral Committee are only punishable to the perpetrators, and do no longer influence in any way the authority of the result.
