What really is Liberty?

Definition Liberty?

Defined by the government system

How one’s thoughts affect the government?

Liberty is completely found within myself: anarchy
Liberty is in everything we do as one; hive-mind.

 Different ways one can contribute their thoughts and influence the government systems.

Decentralized: let everyone come up with thoughts, and let the consensus decide

Distributed: find the person most qualified for the situation

Centralized: Free to have an opinion, but has little influence in what decisions are made

Ocracy Decomposition

Breaking down Ocracies into their underlying system theories 

Ocracies tend to drift in the indicated direction over time to incorporate other underlying systems; especially if the current system is not fully satisfied within one underlying system theory.

*Anarchy is argued as to whether it existed or not, as before written law there was always an orally understood system. No tribe that has ever been observed was a true anarchy.


Underlying System Theory

Every Government System is built upon an underlying System Theory.

No system/Anarchism

Self governance; the people of the society fluidly build and break down governing systems.

Every citizen has a say in the decision making process; each citizen who chooses to participate has the ability to affect matters of governance. 


public officials icon

Decision making is done by those with the greatest expertise; citizens can affect local decision making, but the broader the affect the farther the individual the decision is made. 


collaborate icon

Decision making is made exclusively through one person or group who oversees the health and wellbeing of the whole.

The thoughts and feelings of the whole are all as one; each person considers the health of the whole of society over one’s own personal circumstances. 

Government System

The spectrum of Government Systems that span the underlying System Theory spectrum.


collaborate icon

There is no official institution charged with lawmaking, decision making or law enforcement; citizens self-govern each other.


blueprints icon

Entities for decision making are as distributed as possible to the lowest and smallest group relevant to the issue. Federal, or nation-wide entities do not exist.


public officials icon

There is a need for federal oversight, but that oversight must be extremely limited to international affairs and security to the nation as a whole. The more delegation, the better.


collaborate icon

Each individual who chooses to participate can give their opinion when decisions need to be made. 


blueprints icon

Individuals are selected to represent a group of people in the decision making process. 


public officials icon

A small group distinguished by certain charactaristics (such as wealth, religious, political or military) are in control of the decision making process.

Fascism is an autocracy with democratic elements; decision making is done by one person whenever possible, but still has delegated systems in place.

One person is responsible for all decision making over the state.

Theoretical; decision making is done through the singularity of all human minds connected as one.

Ideals of Liberty

What each system holds as ideal


Anarchy hints to the paradise of Eden. There is no hierarchy, there is no system. Even God equates himself to Adam and Eve. There is perfect paradise until hierarchy is introduced.


Singularity is the concept of heaven to many where the conciseness of the whole of creation is brought to one consciousness, one thought, one direction.


People believe in an autocracy where one or a few are involved in the decision making process, thus streamlining it. This allows citizens to focus more on societal and economic aspects of life, and gives a greater level of freedom within societal practices and norms. As long as what is being done does not negatively affect the state, individuals are free to experiment with various systems to find what produces the best outcomes.


Libertarians believe in an Eden that, even though we can’t ever quite get back to it, we could move ever closer to that concept. Moving democracy to have fewer and fewer systems as systems are only an invention that represents the evil in this world.

Implications of liberty

What are the implications that these different governing systems mean to liberty?

Democracy has always been, by definition, decentralized that’s what makes it a democracy not an autocracy or an oligarchy

Decentralization is an inherent function of all democracies.
Decentralizing algorithms are inherent to democracy

If one wanted to make a more democratic system, they would inherently become more decentralized; in the same way, if they wanted to become more decentralized they would become a more democratic system.

The power source of non-democratic nations does not come from the individuals that make up the nation, rather it comes from the small group who is in power.

A democracy’s decisions are determined by the citizens. This may be done in many different ways, but the entry point and destination is the same as the thoughts of the citizens are translated into the actions the nation will make.

A non-democratic nation does not translate the thoughts of the citizens to national actions.

The democratic process may be different between democracies but a stable algorithm of how this is conducted is the cornerstone of what makes a democracy.

Over time, there is system drift

What end of the spectrum do various governing systems want to go toward?

The pull of liberty is this: one says ‘if we could share all our thoughts and ideas and move in action as one, this would be true liberty. If we all understood each other we would all agree, right?’

On the other hand, liberty is thought of as, ‘we only have our own thoughts to ourselves, if we could express those thoughts without any interruption, which creates suppression, this would give us a true utopia.’

These opposed views of idealistic society brings insight into the direction people want their government to shift toward.


  • Those who hold to a concept of Eden want everyone to have equal say, and little to no structure
  • Those who believe in the concept of a Heaven want everyone to be of one mind, one purpose and move forward as if the whole was one entity
  • There are those who subscribe to empirically based evidence and want a society that bases it’s structure on what is known to work, rather than striving for unachievable ideals.

Author's Concerns

Aspects of this topic that the author thinks are important, even if only implied.

Being Accurate to each system is ideal

Unfortunately, even though virtually all governments use democracy, it is in danger of being labeled as something it is not. This is true for both conservatives and liberals, they are just going in opposite directions. 

This would not necessarily be a bad thing if they were upfront about their intentions. However, it must be taken as a bad thing as people are being lied to. Even if someone agrees with the actual change, if the claimed changes are different from the actual changes, one should not accept this behavior. For a system predicated on lies inherently strips liberty away. The motives of a liar cannot be trusted.

Decentralization is an inherent function of all democracies.

Ultimately, the level of democracy is directly related to the level of decentralization.
