From Stable State

Welcome to the Stable State wikipages!

The Stable State is an evolving ruleset for people aiming at living together peacefully, respectfully and true. It is a very pure form of democracy. It is our hope that some day real communities and states will be organised according to this ruleset and, thus, become real Stable States. The entire world could be organised as 1 Stable State, so it is even a project to politically achieve what commercially, communication- and travel-wise is already a reality: we are one world, one planet.

The stable state is based on 3 ideals and laws:

which we think all people of all religions (or non-religions) and races can and must commit themselves to. Within these laws, we believe in the freedom of everybody to achieve a happy and prosperous life. Also, these laws never change, they cannot be changed.

A StableState's constitution

The constitution of a a Stable State named XY, hence, is very simple "The state of XY is the people in its confines. It persues truth, respect and peace among the people, the nature and visitors. XY is true, respectful and peaceful towards its direct neigbour states and all states of this world. It assures to never attack or occupy land outside its confines and is open to peacefully and democratically merge with other Stable States." Note that it must not refer to any higher power, religion, race, nation or language. It must allow all people of all religions, races, languages, etc. to live with equal rights (and obligations) in the state.

All the organisational and processual details to achieve these ideals are defined with so called rules.

You may see the Stable State as a continuation of ideas and actions done by Thomas Sankara, Steve_Biko etc.

News and Discussions

2022-12-13: India and China fight on a disputed border in the Arunachal Pradesh region

Another rather strange fight because of an unclear border is happening between China and India. This is why the Stable State proposes very clear regulations regarding borders: mark them clearly and when these marks remain for 5 years, then this is the world-wide accepted border. The details of the regulations can be read under Constitution#C.03 Define the confines.

It may all seem archaic with mounting border stones but as this conflict as well as the Ukraine conflict prove: it is necessary to have very clear regulations on state confines and manifest them in reality. There were some 'Budapest contracts', papers, in the Ukraine/Russia case. But obviously these papers were not worth much and can as well be burned. If Ukraine would have marked the borders to Russia in 1990 so very clearly, and vice versa, then it would have been much more obvious that Russia breaks the law of peace.

Also, those fights are really strange in the reasoning. Why is it 'better' for a geographic region and its people to belong to state X instead of to state Y? Well, the only real reason can be that state X, the invador, wants to rob ressources i.e. break the law of respect or to deport or kill the people i.e. break the law of peace. Of course, state X can always claim "50 years ago, 500 years ago, 5'000 years ago this region belonged to a predecessor state of X". E.g. Germany can claim this for today's Kaliningrad, Ex-Königsberg. And many other states for many other regions. But those claims, if older than 5 years since the last attempt to change the border stones, must really internationally be forbidden to be brought forward. And every UNO country bringing such a claim must pay 1 billion USD fine. For example.

To summarise: The pure reason 'this once belonged to our state' must never be accepted or even brought forward by statesmen/women, to claim a region. And all other reasons to conquer a region are violations of the laws of respect and/or peace. And must be fought back with all military power of all democratic states of this world.

So, just stop these border fights, also between Serbia and Kosovo, Taiwan and China, etc.. There, the right of every region to become independent must also be respected. The Stable State's proposed regulations for this can be read under Constitution#C.05 Structure the inner territory into communities, namely C.05.3 Leaving a stablestate, C.05.4 Integrating a region from a foreign state.

With all people fully understanding the 3 laws and adhering to them in their thoughts and deeds, no further rules would be necessary to achieve stable and prosperous communities (as prosperous as nature's forces allow). But the reality shows that, first, not all people equally understand and, second, adhere to these laws. Hence, some rules are in need according to which states, i.e. people living together, are organised.

Rules encompass (a) the meta-rules, (b) definitions (contained in our glossary), (c) parameters and (d) regulations, the latter grouped in the 7 domains of:

  1. Constitution
  2. Persons Administration
  3. Science, Culture and Sports (Education)
  4. Inner Security (Police)
  5. Justice
  6. Exterior Security (Army)
  7. Finances

In contrast to the 3 ideals and laws, the rules are subject to change and optimization towards achieving the ideals. Rules are defined, modified or removed by democratic processes that must involve all citizens. There are no elections in which the legislative power can be delegated. Also, each rule must fulfill the meta-rules.

State Design Principles

Before we can formulate the priciples we need some terminology: A state is

- the set of persons living geographically together,

- the definition of this geographic space (i.e. the so called 'confines'), and

- the mandatory state interactions (events and actions) to get organised towards the ideals and laws of truth, respect and peace.

The rationale behind this definition is that while each person has the right to travel and move, even be constantly on the move, still, at a given point in time, each is located at a defined geographical location (somewhere). This means that we are geographcally forced to live and deal with other people; the closest, i.e. in the same home, hopefully carefully self-chosen and most others, our neighbours, are more or less not self-chosen. Within these people, we distinguish between permanent residents that are grown-up, i.e. the citizens and the visitors. However, there are any more persons-categories in-between and around those main categories as per domain 2, the persons administration and the definitional competence of the community

Freedom and self-responsibility

We believe that state interactions should be minimised and the freedom and self-responsibility of each person should be maximised. Having stated this one may defer that 'freedom' is never achievable to 100%. Hence, the word must be used carefully and never absolute. The freedom of one person is the limitation of the other. So it must carefully be balanced.

Assured equal rights and minimal standard of living

While freedom and self-responsibility of each person should be maximised, it is of utmost importance that equal rights and a community-defined minimal standard of living for all persons must be assured. The minimal standard of living must take the available natural ressources as well as human-made and maintained systems into account.

Visitors are not citizens

Visitors (short-time immigrants) are very welcome, must adhere to the laws and rules and have fair but reduced rights compared to the ones of the citizens. This is also true for extra-terrestrial 'visitors'. Note/12/2022: Currently, our definitions of persons are limited to human beings. Maybe, at some point in time, one should think broader.

Permanent immigrants have the right to become citizens

If visitors become permanent immigrants, they shall be given the opportunity and under some conditions be forced to become full citizens; the definition of 'permanent' again in the realms of the community.

The Agile State

Stable State basic decisions (elections and votes) are agile i.e. not delayable and taken at a given pace, the so-called state-cycles. Also, they are taken involving each community member equally. Hence, the Stable State is also known as Agile State and Agile Democracy. Also, the state's "event handling", i.e. the state's officials and/or automated devices acting according to the laws and rules is always non-delayable. There must be NO options to "play games" with delaying actions or decisions.
