Hey, people! I am from Ukraine. I want to make direct democracy in my country with something like the US Bill of Rights. What do you think about this?
==========Project of Authority System Reform
Let us imagine, that citizens of Ukraine directly approve laws, decisions and decrees without president and without parliament, by the use of technical facilities.
For doing so, it is necessary, that several computer systems, which duplicate one another, be installed and connected to Internet, and, that every citizen of Ukraine have electronic keys, allowing him to vote for various projects of law, decision or decree in those computer systems, by the use of Internet terminals (such as laptop, smartphone, etc.). In order that project of law, decision or decree should be approved, it is necessary and sufficient, that more than half of all citizens of Ukraine vote for that project. For preventing contradictions in legislation, prioritizing is used. One ought to give the law, decision or decree higher priority if it was approved later, or, in the case of approving at the same Vote Day, if it had more votes. If some projects of law, decision or decree, which have been approved at the same Vote Day, have the same number of votes, then priorities of the projects are determined by their registration numbers.
In order that anyone should be able to verify correctness of operation of those computer systems, it is necessary, that at the evening of a Vote Day the systems publish on a DVD the results of voting, and, that the DVD contain information how each citizen voted in that Vote Day. In the case when "considerable" number of citizens of Ukraine detect, that their votes have been taken wrong, it is necessary to cancel the results of such voting, and to investigate and judge the operation of those computer systems. Moreover, for preventing fabrication of votes, it is necessary, that the Register of Citizens, which contains the biometrical and contact information about every citizen, be published and be publicly managed, so one should be able to verify personally whether a certain citizen really had (had not) voted for one or another project of law, decision or decree.
For sure and well co-ordinated legislative process, it is necessary, that Vote Days be conducted about monthly, for example, at first Mondays.
Laws, decisions and decrees of citizens of Ukraine have legal effect on the whole territory of Ukraine. Laws, decisions and decrees of citizens of particular regions (oblasts) have legal effect on the territory of the corresponding regions (oblasts). Laws, decisions and decrees of citizens of particular urban or rural districts have legal effect on the territory of the corresponding districts. The Constitution of Ukraine has the highest priority and has legal effect on the whole territory of Ukraine. The Constitution of Ukraine contain, in addition to human rights, technical manual and operating instruction of the computer vote systems. Changes in the Constitution are made only by Nationwide Referendum.
P.S. I suggest the next plan of actions:
1. Inform famous people about the project, so that they inform other people.
2. Inquire appropriate departments of Google, Microsoft and others about solutions, which they can offer.
3. Choose several solutions from the best ones.
4. Begin to gather money for development of technical designs by companies, that offered chosen solutions.
5. Pay money to companies for their technical designs.
6. Choose the best technical design.
7. Begin to gather money for construction.
8. Pay money (partly, if it is possible), install equipment and distribute electronic keys to all interested citizens of Ukraine.
9. Start up the system in demo mode as the system for sociological survey.
10. Farther - Life will show next steps...
==========Project of Monetary System Reform
Let us imagine, that selling/buying acts in Ukraine are mainly done by the use of so called "promissory notes", and not only by money symbols of any of state banks (such as the National Bank of Ukraine, or banks of the USA FRS, etc.).
Let us examine the next simplified model. Let (fig. 1a): "A" be a metalsmith, that produces implements for farm work; "B" - a peasant, who can do that farm work; "C" - a farmer, who has fields and mills. Let us assume, that the metalsmith has produced the implements and the peasant asks him to give that implements. Because the metalsmith considers the peasant as a trusted payer, he gives him the implements and in return the peasant verbally finalizes the promissory note with the metalsmith. Under that promissory note, the peasant owes 10 conventional units to the metalsmith (fig. 1b). Further, the farmer has found the peasant and asks him to reap a harvest from farmer's fields by peasant's implements. Because the peasant considers the farmer as a trusted payer, he does the farm works, which farmer asks, and in return the farmer verbally finalizes the promissory note with the peasant. Under that promissory note, the farmer owes 14 conventional units to the peasant (fig. 1c). Further, the farmer makes flour from the reaped harvest by his mills. Further, the metalsmith has come to the farmer and asks him to give a sack of flour. Because the farmer does not consider the metalsmith as a trusted payer, he requests, that the metalsmith make some transaction, so that the farmer's debt to the peasant reduces by 5 their conventional units. The metalsmith takes his mobile phone and makes transaction - calls to the peasant, tells him, that he, the metalsmith, charges off 5 conventional units from the peasant's debt and asks him to reduce the farmer's debt by rate 1:1, i.e. by same 5 conventional units (fig. 1d). After part of the peasant's debt has been charged off, the peasant calls to the farmer and tells him, that, due to the metalsmith, he, the peasant, charges off 5 conventional units from the farmer's debt (fig. 1e). After part of the farmer's debt has been charged off, the farmer tells the metalsmith, that he, the farmer, considers him, the metalsmith, a trusted payer and, that he owes him 5 conventional units (fig. 1f). Further, the farmer gives the sack of flour to the metalsmith and in return the metalsmith charges off the just confirmed farmer-to-metalsmith debt by rate 1 sack of flour per 5 conventional units (fig. 1g).
In the same way as described above, every man in Ukraine has the base right to do selling/buying acts and manage his finances. For doing so, it is necessary and sufficient, that every man in Ukraine has dedicated communication facilities. That is, for doing such activity, there is no need to obtain any "permissions" from a body of state authority.
Citizens of Ukraine regularly approve the Public Account, which is intended for financing organizations, that provide so called "public services". I.e. the services, which, on the one part, are needed by majority of people of Ukraine, and, which, on the other part, it is either impossible or unreasonable to identify particular person, who uses such services, and the extent, with which he/she uses such services. Therefore, it is supposed, that all people of Ukraine use public services equally.
Services mentioned below are public services:
- maintenance of computer vote systems;
- significant investigations of criminal and other activities;
- significant scientific researches and engineering developments;
- significant works of art;
- defence of people of Ukraine from terror attacks;
- enforcement of law
- and similar...
Services mentioned below are not public services:
- medical care (an organization, that provides such service, has the ability to identify the person, who demands such service and who must therefore pay that organization for it by oneself);
- education (an organization, that provides such service, has the ability to identify the person, who demands such service and who must therefore pay that organization for it by oneself);
- maintenance of highways (having installed automatic record machines at the entrances/exits of highways, an organization, that provides such service, has the ability to identify the person, who demands such service and who must therefore pay that organization for it by oneself);
- keeping pensionary gold deposits (an organization, that provides such service, has the ability to identify the person, who demands such service and who must therefore pay that organization for it by oneself; because service of keeping precious metals should be paid!)
- and similar...
Because it is supposed, that public services, which were approved by citizens of Ukraine, are used by all people of Ukraine equally, consequently it would be fair, if every man in Ukraine pays equal Public Dues, the size of which is quotient of the size of the all expenses of the Public Account to the number of all people living in Ukraine. That is, the size of such Public Dues does not depend upon man's income, his age, "status" and other similar discrimination. At the same time, all income taxes, VAT and other taxes determined by "a fact of a transaction" are abolished.
Moreover, for stability of capitalist relations, it is necessary, that every man in Ukraine possesses enough capital, leasing of which would be sufficient at least to pay Public Dues. For that, it is necessary, alas, to make revision of the results of privatization.
Please, see a picture here:
P.S. The only question is whether it is possible and reasonable to make all of that.
