About

What could politics be like with no politicians? What if we could elect ideas instead of individuals? What if our voice was our vote and representation wasn't dependent upon participation? Could we get closer to true self-governance?

 

The Internet Government is a system of representation of perspectives, not people - a platform on which ideas themselves could seemingly debate with each other independent of human actors, fed with crowd-sourced contributions of research, rhetoric, and reason. This allows us to coordinate more complex and comprehensive social and political debates between conflicting perspectives, ideologies, and ideas. 

 

By systematically classifying the uploaded ideas from citizens, we can distinguish between textbook logic and textbook logical fallacy, and identify our clash in values so that the arguing can stop and we can start ideating legislative solutions: solutions which work for all of us. We would no longer depend on majority-rule, but instead a more sophisticated mathematical threshold to determine what legislative solutions address all legitimate concerns. We don't have to agree, but we need to compromise and move forward. The Internet Government facilitates that.

 

The Internet Government is a program of the {Benjamin Franklin} Society Library; a 501(c)3 non-profit based in the United States of America. The Internet Government's Abstract Meritocratic Model is appropriate for high-level deliberations, such as between ideologies concerning human rights and resource issues as topics.  As a model, its future is to be adapted and adopted to serve constituents of countries worldwide, as well as scale to enable a global conversation of human ideologies.
