Parallel democracy model is a variant of traditional participative democracy
approach aiming to provide a new method of convergence toward quasi-optimal
solutions of diverse perennial political and social challenges. Within the
framework of the model, such challenges are operationalized into variables for
which the authority can associate possible value. The value which is assigned to
the variable in a moment T of system’s history is called an active value. Every
couple {variable, active value} represents a functional property of a given society
and the genomic vector of such properties can not only describe, but also determine
the functioning of a society under question. In majority of occidental societies,
the authority to assign values to variables is delegated to parliament which assigns
values to variables by means of aggregated voting. The government or other
institutional bodies subsequently execute actions according to such activated values.
In almost all modern political systems, the value->variable assignment is
done in sequential (serial) order for example by voting for one law proposal after
another during a parliamentary session or a referendum. Any reform of the system
—an update of multiple variables— is a costly process because a change of
value for almost any variable requires a new vote which, in majority of societies,
involves the relocation of vote-givers to a vote giving location during a period dedicated
to voting. The progress of quasi-perennial storage systems and databases
in combination with communication networks make it possible to aggregate and
store information about numbers of votes related to potentially infinite number
of variables. Therefore a method by means of which the values are activated and
assigned to variables does not necessarily need to be sequential. Given the condition
that the act of voting is identic to the incrementation of the chosen value
stored on the medium, it is not necessary anymore that the decision-makers shall
meet at one point in time in order to give their vote to the value they want to
activate. Even the condition that they must meet in one place is weakened since
the vote-giving place can be purely virtual. Kyberia.sk and kyberia.cz domains are
domains where first tentatives to implement such a system were implemented «in
vivo» for a limited set of variables. The aggregated voting of already registered
kyberia.cz users determine the number of votes which a registration application
of a new user needs to obtain in order to be accepted. Kyberia.sk senators can
decide what motto shall be displayed at the top of the page —the option which
receive the biggest number of votes becomes the active title. Since both variables
are internal constants of kyberia’s engine, no human intervention is necessary
after a value becomes variable’s active value and the system automatically reconfigure
its own code.

One can imagine, for example, a tribe inhabiting a village located in an environment so hostile, that in every moment of existence of the village, at least two thirds of adult men are patrolling at different spots on the circumference of the village. It happens from time to time that some warriors die in the battle and sometimes their chieftain dies as well. Given a security constraint that forbids the majority of men to meet at one spot and vote, thus leaving the perimeter of the village unprotected, what method could assure that the village shall always have a chieftain respected by the biggest number of his comrades ?

One can imagine the following answer: to every man of the tribe, a distinct color is associated, be it the color that only the man himself can mix. It does not really matter whether the knowledge of color's preparation was revealed to a given individual during a certain rite of passage or whether it was transferred to him by his father —what matters is, that any adult member of the tribe can use a distinct color as his unique identification token. In the middle of the village, there is a group of totems. One of the most central totems is divided into sections, for example stripes colored in different colors. The old legend states that once a man is able to mix his own distinct color, the spirit of the village shall allow him to do two things: Firstly, he can paint his stripe on the totem, hence creating his own section. Secondly, if ever he meets a man worthy of his respect, he can paint one and only one line into the stripe colored in the same color as is the tattoo on the forehead of such a respectable man. And if ever, after engraving such a line into the chosen section of the totem (let’s say green), one finds out that the chosensection contains more colored lines than any other section, one’s duty is to go and seek as much comrades as one can find in order to tell them that the village’s new chieftain is a man with a green tattoo on his forehead...

In this example, the totem represents a variable. When considered as a set, the group of all colors of different sections of the totem $chief represent the type of that variable. When taken individually, every colored section of the totem represents a possible value of the variable. Lines on different sections represent votes which a given possible value had obtained and the section which had obtained the biggest number of votes —i. e. a stripe with the biggest number of distinctly colored lines on it— represents the «active value» of the variable $chief. The act of writing a line correspond to the act of voting and the act of counting the lines within all the sections and the subsequent choice of the section which contain the maximum number of lines can be interpreted as aggregation of votes.

There are several crucial aspects to notice in the above «totem» scenario...

Noda system configure je moderated a obsahuje len take nody ktore sluzia na realne nastavovanie premennych kyberie.

Vsetky otazky ci pripomienky tykajuce sa PDM (ci jej konkretnej realizacie v podobe funkcionality 'system configure') prosim adresujte do tejto 'diskusnej' node.

Tak sa zda ze na zaklade nasej ideje publishnutej tu: http://wiki.kyberia.cz/doku.php/parallel_democracy_model_pdm niekto zostavil celu knihu: http://www.betterworldbooks.com/parallel-democracy-model-id-6133095644.aspx

vidim v tom tieto problemy:
a) ako suvisi tento navrh s kyberiou? Co je na kyberii 'kasta profesionalnych politikov'? Bude moct hlasovat kazdy uzivatel, alebo iba obcan? Avatar system je zneuzitelny tym, ze je mozne vytvarat si neobmedzene mnozstvo alter-eg.
b) system PMD treba naprogramovat. Aktualny system nepodporuje ani 'zmenu nazoru' a teda stiahnutie hlasu. Rovnako kazdy novy navrh nezavisi len od hlasovania, ale aj od programatorov systemu. Odhlasovany navrh sa nenaprogramuje ked nieje cas.
c) je to pouzitelne iba na zopar pripadov, ktore rataju so zmenou behu systemu.

Odpoveda niekedy hromi na podobne otazky?

Z mojich skusenosti na 90% nie.
