It is not only how the political system is constituted and functions, it is how the judicial system is arranged, operated, regulated and restrained by the people. The final arbiter can never be the few and must always be the people. Without justice, a society will never function ethically. This portion of the website and its participants will attempt to revise our judicial system through a blend of a direct democratic decision-making, similar to the Swiss, and the free market in a advanced methodology that blends the very best in computer based communications, conferencing and voting with direct hard copy verifications as a checks and balance to determine both the concurring and dissenting opinions of Constitutional issues in a head to head social competition and experiment, against the current system. The system will attempt to provide superior judicial decisions over those of the existing Supreme Court Judges and gain the eventual favor of public opinion.
The experimental concept is that 1,000 to 1,500 Judges, (with or without BAR affiliation) if property organized, who are each locally appointed “directly by the Citizens” through an affidavit process and participate in a plurality determined decisions as compared to, 5 to 9 Judges, “that must be BAR members” and who are appointed by political methods, at producing decision(s) when deciding Constitutional issues. The more people participating, that are qualified on the complex issues, should provide better overall dissenting and concurring opinions, than the few now in the positions of power. We cannot of course initially have elections but we can select qualified people from around the country to help us test the software and computer system once it is created. We are going to of course attempt to test the system on past or current current cases being mitigated. The various proposed elements of the system can be read at the Summary tab. This is an experimental software system, with many of it’s components already in use in many applications today but we will need to put them together and into a easy usable system. Wether we can get the public to embrace our system is really as much of the experiment as the increased number of Jurists and how to best organize them. Switzerland has utilized the direct democratic approach since the founding of the Old Swiss Confederacy in 1291. http://direct-democracy.geschichte-schweiz.ch/ The origins of Switzerland’s modern system of Direct Democracy with formalized opinion polls and frequent referendums lie in the experimental phase of democracy in the 19th century when Switzerland was surrounded by monarchies on the European continent that showed little to no enthusiasm for democracy.
Most people prefer to believe that their political leaders are just and fair, even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is fraught with corruption, the citizen has to choose how he or she will live under such conditions. To take action against a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To choose to do nothing is to acquiesce one’s self-image of being socially conscious and principled. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker, but only to give cowards an excuse not to think or do anything at all.
Until such time as our world begins to focus on the ”solutions” to problems that have the greatest social effects, we will forever be held hostage by the ruling elites; political and economic powers who collud and corrupt the system for personal gain. The greatest of all political and economic power of any nation is maintained and controlled by the Judiciary. The judiciary controls what laws are legal and what laws are unconstitutional, therefore, despite what people believe, they control the Rule of Law. If the Judicial system is full of collusion and corruption, as almost all are throughout the world, then until such time as we solve this problem, all other attempts of solving various other social problems will be continuously corrupted by the judicial process. All government legislative and administrative actions require or force judicial review by the opposition of such law(s) and it is at that point that the final rule of law is created by just a few people at the highest levels within the Judiciary. Instead of a rule of law, we are instead living under a law by those who rule and it has not worked well for the majority of the world throughout history. – PERHAPS it’s time to CHANGE.
Many have dedicated their lives to the advocacy of the human experience. Like many before, it is a bitter-sweet battle as you meet many great individuals along the way. However, if you are one of the lucky ones, you are able to learn that the system is severely rigged and corrupted. The ruling class has since time in memoria, subjected the majority of society to a harsh and bitter existence for self-serving purposes, having blessed “themselves” by God knows who. The devil perhaps. The Salem Witch Hunts, the Spanish Inquisition, the Holocaust and the Christian Crusades are but a small example of the atrocities committed by devious individuals in political and economic power. They are however able to stay in power by the Judiciary who condone the laws that usurp liberty, that redistribute wealth for personal benefit and that protect those in power from legal recourse. The “Power to Tax is the Power to Destroy” and they will use this power against anyone who resists. When the majority is willing and makes the effort to take back control of the judiciary, I believe that it will begin a new age of peace and prosperity yet seen by the ethical Citizens of the world
