The Principles of the Concept:

Dream of a New World Governance

Join with us in dreaming big. Dreaming of a new world.

Dream of a world where no direct elections to national parliaments take place. Nor direct elections to state assemblies. Not even to panchayat councils.

Dream instead of a world where parliament comes to the streets.

The whole world gets organized into neighbourhood parliament of about 30 neighbourhing families. Each neighbourhood of 30 families becomes a kind of a mini-world or a mini-nation

Each neighbourhood parliament has a neighbourhood cabinet, with a neighbourhood chief minister and ministers for various concerns like health, hygiene, environment, income generation, children’s welfare, adolescents’ guidance- and what not- that are relevant at its level.

Each neighbourhood parliament chooses its delegates to represent them at the village parliament. It too has its cabinet with a village chief-minister and village-ministers for concerns that pertain at village level.

Next is the third parliament, panchayat parliaments and their cabinets.

Thus come about respectively block parliaments, district parliament, state parliaments, national parliaments, international regional parliaments and finally the world parliament (mind you not United Nations but a world parliament) each with its cabinet.

The whole process is guided by certain principles:

Principle One : Principle of Numerical Uniformity.

 

 Once you have a certain number of neighbourhood parliaments you can automatically have a “village” parliament; and once you have a certain number of “village” parliaments, you can have a “panchayat” parliament ; and so on.

Hence no big “village” and small “village” and big “district” and small “districts” so on.

Actually the present territorial designations like that of block, district,state, nation and world are not in vogue any more. What we would have rather are various “tiers” or “levels” of parliaments. Like first level parliament (meaning neighbourhood parliament), second level parliament, and the like.

Principle Two : Principle of Smallness of Size.

 No more are parliaments with 500 and more members. It is a small, discerning community at every level.

(The ideal number of members here? Said Mr.M.P.Parameswaran of Kerala; “Not more than eighty five” Observes Guruji Rishi Prabhakar “Eighty five would be too much. It will still give a lot of scope for majority-minority confrontations. Why not the scout number, that is 36? The neighbourhood parliaments alone, in that case, can have a bigger number i.e.30 families and not 30 individuals)

Principle Three: Principle of Recall

 You don’t need to wait for five years to call back a candidate whom you “elected” from one level of the parliament to the next. As you are a small community at each level of the parliament, you can convene your parliament any time you want and decide together to send someone else who would explain and represent your concerns better.

Principe Four: Principle of Subsidiarity

 Subsidiary units get the focus here. Vitality, dynamism and power are concentrated more at the lowest levels possible. No business that could be handled at a lower level is taken to any level above it. Higher levels deal only with those matters that the lower levels cannot handle.

Principle Five : Principle of Convergence.

 This means once you have such a network everything converges at this network. Everything is done through it. This reinforces the structures further and further. Thus whether children’s programs, Adolescents programs, self-help groups or what not, everything is referred to neighbourhoods and their representative networks.

Well, what would be the world like if this dream were to be realized? Could you detail it out and tell us? What all would be there and what all would not be there?
