Government Guiding Principles
This topic is set up to facilitate discussion towards building consensus around Guiding Government Principles.
Government Priorities, Government Purpose, and Guiding Government Principles are three different but very closely related topics. The purpose of Government should be rooted in guiding principles that are the philosophical basis for the legitimacy and limits of its authority to act in the interests of the Governed.
Of course this view presumes an already adopted philosophical position that Government should serve the interests of the Governed, as opposed to impose its interests on the Governed with indifference to their individual view and interests.
With advancements in technology, including the Canonizer, people will increasingly be able to develop their own consensus as to Guiding Government Principles. This gives added meaning and merit to Brent Allsop's observation: "I always say, If you can know, concisely and quantitatively, what is the morally amplified will of the people, and if a leader isn’t voting for what the people want, shouldn’t he be voted out of office? And if that is the case, you don’t even need them, do you? The only reason we elect leaders now, is because we can’t yet know, concisely and quantitatively, what the people want, in real time."
