The reformation and empowerment of enlightened democracy
- All issues to be considered in a holistic and integral context, such that all relevant factors and all affected stakeholders in any issue can be brought to the table in an enlightened and fully informed way.
- Every point of view should be represented within the decision process.
- We should study various forms of democracy, and look for a balance between the purely "bottom-up" approach, entirely directed by "the people", and a more top-down approach, that introduces expertise and skill and experience.
