The current political order has many dysfunctions which put it further
away form the ideals of democracy. The order does not put the same
level of responsibility on each political decision maker, encouraging
misuse of authorities against the society itself. And instead of
having the best and most responsible ones in the political process, we
have at the top of the process the most competent and merciless
manipulators. The people who are giving the legitimacy to the
government in the pseudo democratic system, due to the restricted
access to information and real image of the political reality, do not
actually have the possibility to elect the best, but, instead, are
doomed to make decisions based on deceptive, media shaped senses, and
not on common sense and knowledge.

The politically inactive individuals who give the legitimacy to the
government and compose the nation body are not directly responsible
for their political decisions. This causes a superficial approach
towards the political process and satisfaction of only low desires
with the effect of encouraging populist methods of government to the
detriment of rule of knowledge.

The new political order represents the rule of experts and most
responsible individuals or groups. With their knowledge and reputation
they receive the legitimacy to make concrete political decisions in
their areas of competency.

Imagine the following scenario:

The Forum gathers all relevant subjects, individuals and organizations
in the society who together cover all social questions. The
individuals who are bound by their areas of interest are mutually
interconnected, so that i.e. someone well informed in the sphere of
environment protection knows all other political subject in that
field. Based on public activities in the society and accomplishments
that have been recognized on behalf of the public and the profession,
it is known who is more or less credible, who carries a certain
authority and who is competent enough to lead a certain political

The individuals who compose the section of the network which is
involved in the area of environment protection, thanks to the
credibility based on the expertise and knowledge, become the source of
public opinion for issues on environment protection. Each individual
has the possibility, to the level of their reputation, to participate
in shaping the public opinion and distinguishing information from
disinformation, with the effect of having the public opinion created
free of manipulation from small interest groups.
This process “purifies” the public opinion of all destructive
influence coming from those circles which find the values of expertise
and openness of public affairs not in their interest. The consequence
is that promotion of suboptimal or damaging decisions is now
confronted with arguments which reveal its nature and prohibit its
legitimating. On the other hand the openness of the process makes it
impossible to create media oligopoly and misuse of such a position.

Having the Forum as the basic political reference base and Forum
members who guarantee the credibility of the information channel with
their individualized responsibility, any manipulation is promptly
revealed. Such a process creates efficient articulation of political
issues and implementation of their solutions though concrete political

The political projects are commenced by the most competent, or those
who see themselves as such. Individuals and/or teams who start a
certain project receive feedback information from the entire
interested public, giving them a stronger political background and
power they need for the project to be realized. If an initiated
project cannot prove any results it is possible to optimize it with
credible references, with help of all interested parties, or to shift
the focus on politically more relevant issues where the project can be
implemented easier.

In the case when individuals are not adequate to receive the
legitimacy to carry out a certain project, by associating with other
initiatives and forming a joint executive body based on the openness
of the goal and methods to achieve the goal, they can easily establish
new structures which will be able to receive full legitimacy at a
given time and implement a broader interest. Those individuals who
fail in this process are put on the political margins, while the
successful ones receive good reputation and adequate political power,
based on the ability to implement the political interests they stand

Simple insight into the whole process and the already mentioned
feedback mechanisms of the Forum point out inefficient actions and
enable better optimization based on the availability of the necessary
knowledge and the fact that everyone who is interested can directly
assist the individuals who stand for their common social interests.

Within the whole system, the most clever and skilful individuals
receive rapidly the earned reputation, while the established
communication channels between those subjects (individuals and other
political subjects) give space to articulated political power, to
proportions so far not seen.

Optimization of that network based on the established trustful
relations between individuals (network of trust) and groups, and
discovery of legitimate procedures of political decision making,
establishes the new political order, internet democracy.
