Letís build a democratic anarchy

 

A democratic anarchy is a new form of social relations based on the hierarchical structure of making decision about organising society, but the final power will belong directly to all of the people in society. We simply cannot cooperate everywhere. In the first place, we simply do not have time for it. Also, we have to pass our participation rights in the decision-making processes in society to people who are experts in the fields. Let's give the people freedom to do what ever they think is the best for society but those people must not disappoint us when they decide something in the fields of our interest.  

A democartic anarchy will enforce that by assigning every person an equal right and power to evaluate any other person. Letís say each person gets the right to evaluate three people positively and three people negatively every month. Each positive assessment should automatically bring a small benefit, let's say one dollar, to the assessed person. On the other hand, any negative assessment will result in a punishment of the same form. What would we get? Such a small power in the peopleís hand will make individuals respect each other strongly. Each member of society will try to create the greatest possible advantages for society, and to diminish or abolish creation of all forms of disadvantages. 

People will judge other people freely. That means an immoral person may evaluate other people dishonestly but it will not matter much because an individual power of one dollar cannot produce harm to anybody. If two people do not like each other they may evaluate each other negatively for years, which would not be a big deal. Getting or losing three dollars in the developed world does not mean much. Individuals will not have much power in society but independent evaluations of people joined together will be very powerful. Besides, the person who receives bad evaluations would never know who has evaluated him negatively. However, the result will be very affirmative because he would try to improve his behaviour towards everyone. A person who receives a large number of negative evaluations would try even harder to avoid doing anything inconvenient to other people and to produce betterment to all. As the result of it, a bully will not harass you at school, your boss will not abuse you at work, your neighbour will not produce noise at night, a salesperson will not cheat on you, politicians will not lie to you; you name it. They will all try to please other people in the best possible way. This is what will eliminate social evil and make a good society.

The higher position in society a worker has, the more responsible to society he would be. If you are an exposed person, for example a chief of a hundred workers, there is no chance you would be a jerk to the workers (which is by the way a very occasional incident today) because they might evaluate you negatively and it may cost you few hundred dollars monthly. By the system of evaluations, chiefs would immediately lose their privileged status among the workers. They will not have any other choice than to cooperate with workers. The president of the US for example, might get 100,000,000 bad evaluations from the American people for bad policies, lies, and for the criminal aggression on Iraq. That would cost him 100,000,000 dollars in only one month. On the other hand, I doubt that his supporters would certainly evaluate him positively because they might easily have higher positive evaluation priorities and would spend their positive evaluations before he gets in turn. Such a president would not be privileged by any means any more. He would run away from his position so fast that no one would have remembered him as a president. Only the most skilful and bravest individuals, willing to cooperate with all of the people, would dare to lead countries. They will not be authorities any more but our servants.

Everyone will serve others as much as he or she can. Everyone will try hard to please society in the best possible way and that will make a wonderful society. By the time, the system of evaluation will abolish the state laws, police and military force, and very states. Nobody will need it anymore. That would be a perfect anarchy.
