Through Liquid Democracy to Sustainable Non-Bureaucratic Government
We summarize the concept of Self-Service Government (ss-Gov)
as presented earlier and explore how the principles of Liquid Democracy (LD)
can be applied in ss-Gov for collaborative decision making. We provide a
thorough insight into the history of LD and summarize its recent developments.
By combining ss-Gov and LD, we develop the concept of Sustainable,
Non-Bureaucratic Government (SNBG) as a novel, blank-slate approach to
government of eligibilities within- and towards governmental systems. We argue
that such entanglement of LD with ss-Gov results in a closed-circuit system
that can provide end-to-end self-management of jural relations. Thus, we argue,
SNBG is a vision concept capable to enable morphable self-managed government
which requires virtually no mediatory human agents for government. We discuss
the feasibility of such approach based on a Gedankenexperiment featuring a
modern parliamentary decision-making process.
