From Humble Beginnings


Wiki > Chapter 2: Tyranny > From Humble Beginnings

Before we race ahead to see how vote sizing can change the way politics is run, we should take a brief moment to examine some of the other ways it can he applied. We don’t want to dismiss the rich variety of places, other than politics, where voting occurs. Vote sizing reforms can be utilized in such places as communes, partnerships, boards, co-operatives, unions …really in any kind of organized human group. (Corporations are already well suited for these kinds of adaptations − all that would be needed is the formation of some kind of internal market where limited, exclusively dividend bearing shares can be exchanged for limited, exclusively voting shares.) All these places provide fertile breeding ground for smaller, less ambitious vote sizing enthusiasts to test and refine their theories, while accenting the diversity of its members and hopefully enhancing the flexibility of the group’s mandate. However, it should be noted that most of these associations are geared for profit before all else (leisure, commission, sustainability) which makes them very different from the strictly regulatory role of government − but after all, if vote sizing can help these alliances succeed in what they do, then why not our government?

All the above examples will help get the vote sizing word out, but in order to show its large-scale, long-term implications, our focus in this book is to grow the discussion group into a political party. Vote sizing is relevant wherever people cherish the vote and feel passionately about evolving their democracies. The most ambitious and motivated among vote sizing backers will set the goal of establishing a team of national political parties, spread out all around the world helping underdeveloped countries become more functional and financially secure while encouraging developed countries to slow down, do some soul searching, and become better global team players. In order to qualify in each country, usually takes an official mandate, a delegation of duties (president, treasurer and administrators), a designated office, a specific number of signatures, and a slate of candidates.

Now, does this mean that every party, regardless of location, will have the very same agenda? No – with vote sizing representing what the core of the population wants, the DEP is able to be true to its doctrines while reflecting each voting bloc’s cultural identity. Although the vote sizing method can cross borders, it doesn’t mean that it will be the same party getting elected. Would the Philippians – represented through a weighted vote – have the same desires as the Chinese? Or the Thai? Absolutely not! In fact, by fully representing what the people want, vote sizing is more able to accurately reflect the range of cultures out there than the current ‘democratic’ parties. Vote sizing is a global movement but not a global party.
