Direct Democracy proposal for Home Affairs, Security and Policing

Review of freedom of speech and rights of self-expression laws

The People's Administration believes that outlawing and alienating certain groups because of what they may think or say actually makes our society more vulnerable [we lose contact, and then the knowledge of their thinking, perceptions and intentions]. This breakdown of communication and understanding leads to fear which eventually leads to negative actions. We can not stop people from getting together, thinking and talking unless we imprison them, which in the view of the People's Administration would be completely unethical, undemocratic and, not necessary. It is not the thinking or talking that directly threatens others, but it is the actions that express these thoughts, feelings and emotions that can potentially become the threat.

The People's Administration believes that we should all be allowed to think and say as we wish. Others do not have to listen or agree but, they should not have the right to prevent others from thinking or saying as they choose [if we criminalise conversations, we will impair valuable communication and, if we criminalise thoughts then we would all be in prison]. The only exception that we would propose is that people should not be free to consciously lie about others in the public domain.

It is the actions of people that directly affect others and so in a true and direct democracy, this would be the only aspect that others have a right to interfere with. If we feel the ‘need' to stop others from getting together and/or from expressing themselves, then what is it within our society that we're not addressing? If of a subversive nature, then what are the reasons for why people feel the ‘need' to get together in secret in the fist place?

We believe that addressing the fears of others increases understanding and the forward-development of relationships and, we believe that this is essential in seeking peaceful solutions and curbing negative actions. Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to consider all of these aspects in forming any related policy proposals.

Voting for direct democracy outside a general election

Direct Democracy - Audio

It is up to us, the people [not the politicians] to use the power that we have always had, to choose to implement direct democracy as soon as possible.

This is not a protest campaign.

In accordance with Magna Carta Article 61 and with UN UDHR Article 21 and with all democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK is signed-up to], the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog is a UN-sanctioned and legally recognised voting format for UK reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.

Vote legitimately for a peaceful and structured UK reform to direct democracy now simply by following the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog and when numbers reach a point of critical mass, we'll do the rest.

The People's Administration's constitution for reform to direct democracy and our voting protocols for implementing direct democracy have both been accepted by the UK Electoral Commission and the UN as legitimate. In a general election, the People's Administration DOES NOT have to field candidates to secure your vote on the ballot paper. Outside a general election, you can vote for a legitimate reform to direct democracy now by following @self_rule
