Our governance process is a strictly voluntary system. People have the power, what they need is a choice. This system is a mix of Swiss Direct Democracy and Benjamin Franklin's Junto.
Benjamin Franklin prided himself on the art of doing good. People make two choices, who best represents the art of doing good between themselves and who has done good between everyone at large. Eventually the 'who has done good' gets whittled down to a small number, and the 'art of doing good' down to 8.
The final 8 are tasked with tallying the votes and distributing funds appropriately to those who have done good, and to make a statement regarding what they see wrong with society and how we can do better. So in the distribution of funds it is a direct democracy, but in the determination of ideals or warnings it is representative.
There is no authority to punish, only a delegation to lead. All distribution of funds are determined by the whole, funded by a 501(c)3 non-profit in Tennessee founded by a politically active tech developer.
