Liquid democracy

WHAT IS LIQUID DEMOCRACY?

Fluent democracy is a mixture of representative democracy and direct democracy. You decide how much or how little you want to get involved in different issues. If you do not want to get involved at all, you can do as today - give your vote to a party.

In short, floating democracy means that: You vote in the issues you want or delegate (give your vote) to e.g. one of the regular parties - so they make decisions for you in the very issue you delegate to them.

Imagine you log into our voting system. You happen to be knowledgeable in, for example, rural issues. Once you have logged into the system, you can choose to vote directly on all issues you want or you can delegate your vote on any questions you do not want to vote in.

We think that all issues can be categorized into categories corresponding to the eleven ministries:

  • The Prime Minister's Committee
  • Ministry of Labor
  • Ministry of Finance
  • Ministry of Defense
  • Ministry of Infrastructure
  • Ministry of Justice
  • Ministry of Culture
  • Ministry of the Environment
  • Ministry of Trade and Industry
  • Ministry of Social Affairs
  • Ministry of Education
  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs

You delegate your vote on all issues except rural issues. There you have skills and want to join and vote, as well as debate.

You don't have to delegate your vote to just one party. Maybe you think a party is particularly good in financial issues, while another is very good at education issues. You can thus delegate to several different delegates. For example, when a motion arises about finances, your delegate decision makes you on that particular issue and votes in our voting system. You can change delegates or vote yourself in an individual matter if you think your delegate does not make good decisions.

You can, if you wish, delegate all your votes and thus do not need to vote more than you do today. But, the difference with today's system is that you can always vote whenever you want if a question arises that you want to be involved in.

Fluent democracy is the solution to the question of time and level of knowledge in order to make an informed decision.
