Hey, actually it could be the best idea in a decade! Your country needs something new indeed! Think it well and start it! About 8 months ago we the
Romanians actually started a new movement back in Romania, and ATS was my inspiration in a lot of things
. We are still in the beginning but we are
going quite well.
Our party will be based on collaboration and it will be meant to replace the pyramidal system. We simply consider that being altruistic is not a part
of human nature , so the political system where you elect someone to represent you is obsolete.
So, the system we are working at is bit like this:
1) We creeated 16 "categories" that can cover all the aspects of life. Example - Health, Education, Energy , Infrastructure and so on.
2)Every member of the party will be allowed to choose 3 categories where they can have decisional power (to vote and be voted etc)
3) In every of the 3 chosen domains, you can come with ideas , suggestions , complains and so on.This is a way to "propose a project"
4) All the members - regardless of their favourite domain - can "RATE" your proposal. Using a 5 star rating system like the one on Youtube.
5) The projects that are rated above 4 out of 5 stars , will be promoted as the project of the "party".
6)after the project is accepted , it can start - so people can propose solutions , how to solve the problem or how to implement the idea . It is
nothing more than Project Management , but the people deciding the steps and so on will be the specialised ones (if you choose a certain domain you
should at least be above average on that field )
The party is centred on projects - how to solve problems. Every project will have a "project leader" (volunteer, forgot to say). This will be
elected by the members . The method - dynamic election. What is that ?
Well, you vote one guy. If this is not doing the job properly, you can just log-in, take the vote away from him / her and give it to someone else - or
even "park it" . In this way , elections are a permanent process, so you do not have in vain promises for nothing.
I am still working on the software - i use PHP-MYSQL to create the tool for all above. Unfortunately I do not have any English translation of the
material , but if you want to help out i can translate the materials, then give you the source code as it will be all Open Source .
O, forgot to say - this concept is called "Government 2.0" , and it is based on the concept that people should decide for themselves instead of a
small politico-corporatist elite .
I encourage you guys to not stop here with the idea. The time of classical politics has come !
WE THE PEOPLE !!
