Ideapod – Democracy failing

Ideapod – democracy is failing

Gaurav asked – “Then tell me the best way to govern”

What do you mean when you use the term “govern”?

Do you mean it in the sense of a governor on a diesel motor – a thing that only has an influence when other systems try to take the “system” beyond a limit that is survivable (over-speed)?

What are the existential limits you are thinking of?
How do they vary with context?
How closely do our existing systems approximate such a thing?
To what degree have our existing systems been “captured” by levels of “cheating strategies” that divert value to the interests of a few over the interests of the many?
What does freedom look like when multiple levels of awareness coexist within the same sets of system?
How might freedom at one level appear to those at other levels?

At what level does one agree to negotiate levels of consensus across levels of systems and awareness?

Perhaps most important, what are the major sets of context present, and what are the major levels of threat – to both life and liberty, present in those contexts?

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see
