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.
