Ok , I guess we may have made a start somewhere here.
So, what would make up a good world and regional governmental structure?
My thoughts would be around this...starting from the voter upwards.
Voter / Joe Public
Local Representative - This would be a person (elected, nominated, or part of a community service i.e. national service) who stays in post for a
period of time to act as a voice and ideas person for their community. Which could be a Post Code/Zip Code, Small village and so on. Although not a
paid position, they are there to gather data and dedicate a small amount of time to advising local government on peoples opinions and needs. This need
not be one person , it could be a team of people.
Tier 2 Government / Local Council
Local govs would be part of a two tier structure for regions i.e. counties or cities. These would have some control over providing locals services
and influencing decisions makers in tier 1. In the UK there are sometimes unity councils which control entire counties, and no control is given to
Tier 2 would also have some responsibility in high population areas i.e. acting under one cities tier 1 government.
Tier 1 Government
This would be the larger scale county or city councils . Control for education, health, roads and transport , security and police and so on. Policy at
this level is suggested in tier 1 and 2 , as well as views of local repetitive take into account.
At this level, civil servants have to have experience in some form or another to represent their department i.e. head of transport must come from a
background with skills and knowledge relevant to the job (This is not the case in the UK. Often heads are administrators more than innovators)
NB * In order to make sure that the community is being best represented tier 1 and 2 must have members of the public (Elected, Volunteers, or national
service) who can give a little time to take part in decision making)
Regional Government i.e. Region like east midlands, London and the south, or States if in the US.
These will have overall budgetary control and head up Health, Education, Spiritual , transport and so on. These level will have the overall management
National government –
Overall control of each country.
Full taxing and financial control (Could there be an internationally agreed level of tax?)
Full control over Law and Legislation, Laws and Leg have to be put through the World Council and agreed upon by all members. Things like legal age of
consent , marriage laws across all faiths, legal matters, business law and so on….all the big stuff.
Parties can not be funded by external interests. That leaves the government open to all sorts of corruption. i.e. in USA your government is funded by
special interest groups like oil companies. I’m sorry I just don’t believe you get a donation of several millions into your account from an oil
company and not be expected to do something in return….like look the other way when they knowingly destroy and African community and pollute the
Instead, the TV and Media could have slots which are allotted to the parties for their own advertising. A limited amount of funding should also come
from Tax, which it does anyway, to enable parties to communicate their message.
Governments and people are elected but this comes with a more altered mission. You would elect people you think would be best at managing the world
systems as well as driving policy if needed on an international scale.
