From Stable State

The Stable State's meta-rules are formulated to guide the development and evolution of the rules. All rules must fulfill the meta-rules.

MR.01 everywhere and anytime The rules must be possibly applicable everywhere and anytime.

Example: this means that no cities, countries or regions or whatever geographical names must be mentioned in the rules.

Comment: this does not mean that a rule is valid at all times for all regions of a state. Instead, each rule is introduced at a point in time, possibly modified several times and possibly revoked at some time. Also, the stable state knows a system of rules-pilotage which means that certain rules (and hence definitions and parameters) can be defined only in some and not all of the state's units.

MR.02 for all The rules must be applicable by and for possibly everybody.

Example: this means that no individuals names or groups that not everybody inherently and automatically is or might become part of must be mentioned in the rules. So, it is correct to talk about the groups of unborn human beings, young people, the superannuated, the females, the males, etc. in the rules, but not about religious groups or all people whose names begin with the letter "A"

MR.03 1 world state The rules must make sense also when all human beings are united in 1 state.

Comment: When all human beings are united in 1 state, still, there is need to prepare for state-external attacks, by non-humans that is.

MR.04 obvious can be challenged Some facts or definitions are considered obvious. However, if a substantial set of citizens (p_percentage_of_citizens_challenging_obvious, 5%) requests to execute the prescribed way to define it, the state must execute this prescribed way in the due delay which is also prescribed.

Example: An official state language of Germany is German. However, if the given percentage of citizens of Germany wants to challenge this, then the defined way, the standard democratic procedure, must be executed in the next state cycle.

MR.05 do not limit top performers If a proposed rule or existing rule limits the freedom of human beings that behave truly, respectfully and peacefully, then it must be abandoned or revoked by the next state cycle.

Example: A proposed rule that limits the salaries in a company by defining a limit to the maximum salary as 10 times the minimum salary cannot be part of a stablestate ruleset. Reason: the maximum achievers must not be limited by the minimal ones. If the maximum salary receivers are untrue, not respectful or not peaceful, this is another story and must be covered by other rules.

MR.06 only necessary rules If a proposed rule or existing rule is not necessary (and/or is too specific), then it must be abandoned or revoked by the next state cycle.

Example: A proposed rule that defines the shape of bananas to be sellable is not needed. Instead, a generic quality of service/product rule can be formulated and each provider publicly defines the available quantity and quality of his services/products. So, the customer can decide. Only if the delivered services/products do not fit the promises, then other generic rules come into effect. Actually, this example could even be directly governed by the 2 laws of truth and respect.
