Initiatives v Oligarchy

Our Founders' Warning: “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.” (Thomas Jefferson)

IQA Membership Size

(Also Charter 1.7)
The IQA shall initially consist of 500 Members.

The Assembly hall have a “rolling membership” such that at the end of each session, one-twelfth of the members shall end their term of service, and at the start of the next session new members shall bring the total number up to the full complement of members.

The IQA shall hire experts to advise on the long-term optimal membership size of the IQA and the number of days it should meet based on factors such as:

  1. Number of proposed Initiatives submitted.
  2. The minimum size of a group of Citizens who can propose an Initiative.
  3. Approval rate for Candidate Initiatives.
  4. Proximity of the IQA vote to the Electorate vote on each Initiative.
  5. IQA organization, effectiveness and efficiency
