Integration cannot be rationally realised within an EU constitution or for any member state unless it is something worth signing up to or defending. It seems to me that it has no future if it is not modelled on an informed choice, but just imposed through the back door. Carefully consider: a) Representative democracy registers the right of the citizens' capital to form congresses of interests b) Delegated democracy registers the right of the citizens' votes to form congresses of...

There are reasons to be pessimistic; for the possibility of the unbiased vote given an ethical constitutional choice: clearly we cannot vote for a different constitution given the party system is already dogma. Suppose we can vote for a constitution, the cynical will just say it will be decided by those institutions and corporations that have the most capital. If so, what is the point of spending the time and money to make it happen? Well if their power and influence becomes more and more...

    My worry is the power that such a body can have if it is answerable to none but parliament. If run by the particular interests of the largest corporations, it needn’t be the will of the state even if its citizens are brainwashed to think otherwise.

Potentially these have very grave social costs. As I have suggested with other...

Manifesto defining a government for the Delegate Party: Within the Republic the government shall consist of delegates, each one being elected from the congress of their direct interest.  Any person has the right to register a direct interest in their profession or work. Once registered any other person may become a member of that congress. If they register an interest in any other congress this will not increase their votes within it. Once formed, the members of the congress may...

Instead of a head of state, a chairperson should be elected for a fixed term. This chairperson will be responsible for keeping the order of the proceedings that include the reading and debate of any proposed legislation within the senate. When they decide that enough time is given to the legislation, the chairperson will call on the delegates to vote on it (they act on behalf of the congresses that stand for the direct interests of the Republics citizens). If passed, the chairperson will...
