Following are the mission statement and vision statement of the Metagovernment project. These statements are summaries of what can be found elsewhere on this site and in the archive, and are stated here in order to potentially help with the creation of a formal organization.


The mission of the Metagovernment project is to create and promote the use of software called Metascore which can act as the sole governance mechanism of any community.


The Metagovernment project envisions a world where every person, without exception, can substantively participate in any governance structure in which they have an interest. We intend for adoption of Metascore to start in small communities and to spread outward until it has replaced every representative democracy with open source governance. We envision government which is not only more open, free, and democratic, but also which is more effective and less fallible than pre-internet forms of governance.
