When the system itself no longer ensures our liberty but instead pits us against each other, then it becomes our duty to reform it. This is a fundamental right built up and reestablished in documents like the Ten Commandments, the Koran, the Magna Carta, the US Declaration of Independence, the UN Declaration of Human Rights, and millions more trying to set out the rights and responsibilities of individuals under various forms of government.
That government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security of the people, nation or community; of all the various modes and forms of government that is best, which is capable of producing the greatest degree of happiness and safety and is most effectually secured against the danger of maladministration; and that, whenever any government shall be found inadequate or contrary to these purposes, a majority of the community hath an indubitable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to reform, alter or abolish it, in such manner as shall be judged most conducive to the public weal.
~ The Virginia Declaration of Rights, 1776
However, as this blog illustrates; corruption is not layer on top – but woven into – the social readiness and material organization were not always working well; and corruption has had its share of luck in our evolution. This state of affairs is anything new. In fact, throughout our history there have been many times when people like you and me have had to stand up, right wrongs and wrestle the system back from the edge of insanity.
As each technological age builds upon the previous ones, so does the evolution of our voting system – working in cycles where the flow of power and wealth become dangerously concentrated and after enough cross feeding of technology, growth and conflict; voting system gets reformed to push democratic boundaries beyond what the vast majority of people would think was possible or normal. At times these progressions are mind-boggling fast; at other times they’re painfully slow.
As we try to use this wiki to brainstorm how vote sizing is our next enormous step towards resolving a lot of conflict (including with the material world that sustains us); we also realize that it’s only a matter of time before the elite find new ways within this system to corrupt things and tip the scales back in their favor. As we go through this conflict, and the ones which await us in our future – vote sizing itself will be built onto how we get along and grow in the universe, and help us continue to think forwards and find solutions before the problems become dangerous left unresolved.Click here for reuse options!
