Very interesting and familiar ideas.These aren't new ideas at all

though! They've been around for about a hundred and fifty years under

the name of anarchism. This is very similar to how an anarchist

society would function on a mass scale. You've effectively

reinterpreted anarchist ideology into this movement without knowing

it. :P

 

 Perhaps what we're essentially doing is building a new society within

the shell of the old which is a valuable tactic and we should get some

type of slogan behind it. Building a new society within is really the

core of what we are and we need to express this more elegantly. I

think our one demand should be something like "People all over the

world organize!" to help further this idea. Obviously we shouldn't

call this an anarchist movement even though it essentially is.

Participatory direct democracy will work perhaps. That's what we'll

call our system.

 

We have a very unique situation and we shouldn't water it down. People

of all political ideology seems to be attracted to this system which

shows that it breaks the left and right dichotomy.

 

Those are my thoughts.
