I am a pragmatic communitarian libertarian socialist, and by that I mean that I believe the following:
- The state should not exist. If it is to exist, it should be run by the model of DDDD:
- At the municipal level, the legislative body should consist of all citizens.
- At higher levels (prefectural, provincial, regional; confederal; other terms may be used), voters elect delegates to the Diet (Congress, Senate, Parliament, Assembly, Council, etc.) of each level by single transferable vote (or some other preferential system). These delegates are proportional to the number of voters and are directly accountable to their constituents.
- At all levels, in order to prevent the tyranny of the majority, a proposal must be freely deliberated upon and modified until a consensus is reached before it is enacted as law. If the deliberation and modification does not result in a consensus, it is discarded.
- At all levels, the members of the executive and judicial branches are elected directly by their constituents by single transferable vote (or some other preferential system).
- Natural resources are common property; everyone using natural resources must pay some sort of 'rent' back to the community.
- In a minarchist or DDDD-based society, this would be implemented by a single land value tax which is then used to fund a universal basic income and community projects.
- In an anarchist society, this would be implemented by voluntary associations ensuring that all matters of natural resources are taken care of in a just manner; this also may be the natural state of an anarchist society. See 'Geoanarchism' by Fred Foldvary or The Natural Economic Order by Silvio Gesell.
- Everyone is entitled to the goods they made and to trade them for goods made by others.
- All people have the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and property, freedom of thought, speech, association, and assembly, and the rights to trade and to form contracts voluntarily.
