From Metagovernment - Government of, by, and for all the people

Jump to: navigation, search

Das Ziel des Metagovernment-Projektes ist es, die Entwicklung und Nutzung von Internet-Tools zu unterstützen, die es den Mitgliedern jeder beliebigen Gemeinschaft ermöglichen, vollständig an der Regierung/Führung dieser Gemeinschaft teilzunehmen. Wir sind eine globale Gruppe von Menschen, die an verschiedenen Projekten zur Erreichung dieses Zieles arbeiten.

Wir erwarten, dass eine solche Regierungs-Software zuerst in kleinen Gemeinschaften eingesetzt wird und sich von da ausbreitet mit dem Potential, schrittweise viele Institutionen der repräsentativen Demokratie zu ersetzen durch eine neue Form der sozialen Organisation, der sogenannten gemeinschaftlichen Regierung.

Wir stellen uns eine Welt vor, in der ohne Ausnahme jeder Mensch in der Lage ist, substantiell an jeder Regierungsstruktur teilzunehmen, an der er/sie ein Interesse hat. Wir stellen uns eine Form von Regieren vor, die nicht nur offener, freier und demokratischer ist, sondern auch effektiver und weniger fehlbar als die Regierungsformen vor der Entwicklung des Internets.
