Continues from The Future of Democracy
Under the pressure from democratic anarchy, an elected government will surely follow the needs of the people. If the authorities are not sure what the needs of the people are then their responsibility, clearly defined by the fear of peoples’ evaluations, directs them to discover love towards peoples’ participation in decision-making processes through referendums. In this regard, they will develop a simple, fast, and efficient method for direct decision-making of the people, most likely over the Internet. The authorities would certainly not dare to make most important decisions for society alone because they can easily make mistakes that might bring about the wrath of the people and a large number of negative evaluations.
The macroeconomic policy of the society will certainly be directly created by the people, because it is the foundation that directs the economy and that means a complete society. How? Quite simply, one first needs to enable every person to decide how much money from their gross income they want to pay for taxes. The average values of all the peoples’ expressions will determine what percentage of salaries each worker will put aside for taxation. Furthermore, in the same way, each person can decide on how tax money is spent. Each person will decide how much tax money they would set aside for: the defence of the state, public safety, education, health, housing, recreation, infrastructure, etc.
Theoretically, the people can decide on a collective consumption within the consumer groups as much as they want. All these groups of shared consumption will have a far greater overall impact if they are democratically allocated. Following the living experience, the people will learn how much money should be collected for taxes and what the best way to spend it is. Thus, this spending will follow the needs of people in the most efficient way because it will no longer be alienated from the society. In such a way, the people will become active members of society and so; they will accept their community a lot more. Given that the new system offers stable and good relations among nations, people will no longer allocate money for the needs of armies and armies will cease to exist. In the democracy I have proposed, war will no longer be possible.
The people must directly make strategic decisions in society, because that is the only way the policy of society certainly follows the interests of people. All other decisions could be made by professionals and they will be directly responsible to the people for those decisions. Once people get the power to participate in the decision-making process of their own interests and when they have the power to judge those who make decisions on their behalf, that will present the most developed form of democracy. There's no better political way. Such a democracy will realise all the dreamers’ dreams in the history of mankind. Once such a democracy is accepted, people will become so satisfied with it that they will not allow anyone to seize it from them.
