Post by Molaskes »

The following is a selection of those parts

That person is then considered part of the Democratic World according to this Constitution.

(3) This Constitution does not automatically render ineffective any competing social orders, especially when they resort to violence, for instance in the form of a police, to force themselves upon each person they consider their property (“citizenship”) against the person’s free will. Overcoming such hostile social orders is dealt with in Article 12 Paragraph (7) and Article 13.


Article 2 — Basic Societal Structures

(1) All persons that according to Article 1 are part of the Democratic World, organize themselves for permanent largely autarkical social self-administration in Democratic Communes, associations of each not considerably fewer than 200 and not considerably more than 1000 members who organize their everyday life directly together.

(2) As long as persons that according to Article 1 are part of the Democratic World cannot with practicable effort find or form a suitable Democratic Commune according to Paragraph (1), they alternatively organize themselves in Democratic Groups, associations of each not fewer than 12 and not more than 50 members whose primary goal it is to found together with other Democratic Groups a Democratic Commune according to Paragraph (1), and who already follow this Constitution as far as possible to practice self-administration of their everyday life.

(3) As long as persons that according to Article 1 are part of the Democratic World cannot with practicable effort find or form neither a suitable Democratic Commune according to Paragraph (1) nor a Democratic Group according to Paragraph (2), they alternatively organize themselves as soon as possible in Launch Cores, associations of each not fewer than 2 and not more than 11 members whose goal it is to add further members in order to form a Democratic Group according to Paragraph (2).


Article 3 — Higher Societal Structures

(1) A neighborhood of abidingly closely cooperating Democratic Communes according to Article 2, whose combined membership size is not considerably lower than 4000 and not considerably higher than 20,000, can form a Democratic Association, if they each do not already belong to one.

(2) A neighborhood of abidingly closely cooperating Democratic Associations according to Paragraph (1), whose combined membership size is not considerably lower than 80,000 and not considerably higher than 400,000, can form a Democratic Union, if they each do not already belong to one.

(3) A neighborhood of abidingly closely cooperating Democratic Unions according to Paragraph (2), whose combined membership size is not considerably lower than 1.6 million and not considerably higher than 8.0 million, can form a Democratic Region, if they each do not already belong to one.

Article 5 — Self-Administration / Real Democracy

(2) Each societal entity according to Paragraph (1) uses at all times at least the three Administrative Sectors “System Performance” (see the Paragraphs (6) and (7)), “Education” (see Article 6), and “Conflict-Solving” (see Articles 7 to 9).

(3) Disputes within Administrative Sectors according to Paragraph (1) are settled by them internally with the goal of collective competency development, so that in the end there will stand a solution or decision that all involved managers with conviction deem the factually best one. Neither may majorities simply overrule minorities, nor age, experience, dominant conduct, or extroversion simply overrule younger age, less experience, gentleness, or introversion.

(4) All Administrative Sectors according to Paragraph (1) can each define for themselves types of decisions that be “subject to approval by all”, in which henceforth all of its managers must be involved that with practicable effort can be included within an availability period defined for that type of decision, or if such a period has not been defined, within 48 hours.

(5) Disestablishing for a particular type of decision the status of being subject to approval by all as defined in Paragraph (4) is for all Administrative Sectors mandatorily a decision subject to approval by all within the meaning of Paragraph (4), and can itself never be disestablished.

(6) The Administrative Sector “System Performance” according to Paragraph (2) decides for its societal entity which further Administrative Sectors will be needed besides those given in Paragraph (2), and defines their tasks [...]

And it develops methods for avoiding such conflicts, and teaches them to members of its societal entity, whenever and wherever there is need for that.

(2) Conflicts for the purpose of Paragraph (1) include firstly disputes, violence, coercion, or momentous manipulation

Unethical actions for the purpose of this paragraph are in particular the intentional, or with reasonable effort avoidable, infliction of stress, injury, or death upon any kind of being that usually, when it is not hindered to do so, will react to similar stimuli or threats by retreat or defensive action, except for actions that seem necessary to save, or that in all likelihood will significantly improve, the life of the patient.

  • disputes, violence, coercion, or momentous manipulation involving children, cohabitants, and/or guests of the societal entity,

  • and all kinds of intrapsychic conflicts (psychological problems) of members, children, or cohabitants of the societal entity.
(7) To end violence or other potentially gravely harmful actions, the Administrative Sector “Conflict-Solving” according to Paragraph (1) can use any means that in all likelihood will have less serious consequences for all the involved parties than the action that shall be thus ended, and will try to use the mildest means that can be used under the circumstances with practicable effort and at reasonable risk.

(8) Conflicts according to Paragraph (1) where the Administrative Sector “Conflict-Solving” is involved in itself, shall be handled by the Administrative Sector “Conflict-Solving” of the next higher societal level according to Article 3 or Article 4, or if there exists no entity for that, alternatively by any other societal entity’s (according to Article 2, Article 3 or Article 4) Administrative Sector “Conflict-Solving” that is likely to be capable of it, and is called for help accordingly.


Article 8 — Dealing With Dangerous Individuals

(1) For ethical and strategic security reasons, the Administrative Sector “Conflict-Solving” according to Article 5 Paragraph (2) can, to protect the societal entity and/or the environment, restrict, with the mildest possible method that serves the purpose at a practicable effort, the freedom of intransigent violent offenders, or intransigent offenders who committed another grave harmful action, for as long as the Administrative Sector “Conflict-Solving” considers them to be a serious threat.

(2) The freedom restriction according to Paragraph (1) shall be motivated and characterized solely by ethics; any “punishment” is illicit, for it itself would be conflictful.

(3) The offender restricted according to Paragraph (1) shall quite continuously be counseled psychologically by the Administrative Sector “Conflict-Solving” according to Article 5 Paragraph (2) with the goal of their full ethical (re-)habilitation, as long as this seems possible with practicable effort.

Article 10 — The Cooperation System

Each basic or higher societal entity according to Article 2 or Article 3 respectively can entertain temporary or permanent cooperative relations with any other entity of the same type on the same level, wherefore it can maintain a distinct Administrative Sector according to Article 5 Paragraph (6).


Article 12 — External Relations

(3) Each basic societal entity according to Article 2 should, as far as it presumably is necessary, and as far as it is practicable, secure itself and its members against violent assaults, encroachment, and other grave harmful actions that might be committed by parts of other social orders. These security measures should include personal security, object security, and data security, each both on the premises of the societal entity and on the road, including the accompaniment of visitors in either case.

(4) The risk of violent assaults, encroachment, or other grave harmful actions committed by parts of other social orders should at all times be minimized strategically by each societal entity according to Article 5 Paragraph (1), among other things by outwardly following any rules such social orders explicitly or implicitly demand, especially also against rules of this very Constitution, as far as this reasonably seems necessary, while cleverly preserving as many freedoms within the societal entity as is practicably possible.

(7) Especially as long as there exist hostile social orders according to Article 1 Paragraph (3), each societal entity according to Article 5 Paragraph (1) should maintain according to Article 5 Paragraph (6) an Administrative Sector for public relations that as effectively and quickly as possible counteracts any hostile attitudes or feelings against its societal entity or the Democratic World according to Article 4 as a whole [...]

(3) Should another social order according to its own rules (such as provisions of its own constitution) declare itself dissolved, and a large number of persons in conjunction with this become a part of the Democratic World according to Article 1, then in order to avoid chaos and emergencies, a transitional period is to be observed, marked by ethical, economic strategy, and security strategy considerations, in which the rules and structures of the old social order at first are adopted completely as they had been, and within three years, as quickly as it is practicably possible for each, and as it is ethical regarding all the involved parties, are replaced by the rules and structures of the Democratic World according to this Constitution here.
