This website concerns the application of advanced social technology to law and government. The prevalence of war, crime and poverty indicates that our society does not work. How to change it? The core of the problem seems to be political. One need only review the political situations in various countries around the world to see how poorly the different systems function, whether in dictatorships or democracies.
The established institutions of our society are quite resistant to change, but change is possible. One may cite the example of how the British parliament came to hold absolute power, while the monarch retains a purely theoretical power. Monarchy did not work for ordinary people — a parliamentary democracy is much better — so parliament gained power without actually overthrowing the monarchy. It is still possible for new institutions to spring up, leaving parliament and the legal system only a theoretical power. Such institutions could work much better than anything we have, if they were based on the advanced social technology of the near future.
