Concept of Online-Nations
In the "motivation" section of this page we tried to explain why we started Online-Nations.net. In the concept section we want to explain the basic ideas of this initiative.
State/Nation: Online-Nations.net provides a framework for states / nations (political entities shaped by their members called citizens ) and their coexistence and collaboration. For lack of a better term this collaboration with the goal of joint benefit can be called an " online commonwealth ".
Direct Democracy : like most online communities, Online-Nations.net can only work through participation and collaboration. Citizens take decisions in a direct democratic process. Online-Nations will be shaped by those decisions.When (and if) a critical mass of citizens (community members) is reached, we will together decide, how such a direct democratic system shall be implemented.
Laws / Legal System: laws and legal system on Online-Nations.net will also be shaped by a direct democratic process. They will define the commonly agreed rules for this online community. The Online-Nations.net framework will provide for starters a few very simple rules to make sure our legal system(s) stay manageable and comprehensible.
Education: a cornerstone of a multi-value-system framework like Online-Nations.net is the free distribution of information to satisfy the natural curiosity of intelligent human beings combined with "mentors" who can help to understand and find and evaluate information.
