The Interstellar New Deal (IND) is organized in the order that I think that we should work through these policies. I will explain my thoughts and reasoning for this order in their respective sections
Basic Book Order
Effectively, the IND can be broken up into 3 essential phases which do not necessarily happen one after the other, but may happen in concert at many times, and, at other times, some parts of some phases have to happen before others.
Below are the three essential phases to the Interstellar New Deal, the bulk of which happens in the second phase:
- Planning for an Interstellar Humanity (1 section)
- Global Domestic Policies (10 sections)
- Evolving Humanity Beyond War, Poverty, and Suffering (1 section)
Ok, yes, to be fair the Planning for Interstellar Humanity phase probably should really be found within Phase II, but I think it really seems appropriate that my Global Domestic Policies are book-ended by both the inspiring call for Interstellar Humanity as well as with a Humanity that has Evolved Beyond War, Poverty, and Suffering.
Essential Structural Order
However, the real phases of such progress will need to follow as path like this:
- Universal Social Values
- Universal Declaration
- Reinforcement Framework
- Global Domestic Policies
- Evolving Humanity
1. Universal Social Values
Universal Social Values must come first in order to create a social values system which would allow the rest to follow. The bedrock for long lasting social, economic, environmental, or well… any change is a values change. If we do not change our values then any changes we force will be temporary because we do NOT have the values to maintain and support them.
2. Universal Declarations
Once we have established a Universal Social Values system which values Humanity and the Natural World, then the next step would be to codify protected rights for all which then can guide value driven laws. These would be codified into Universal Declarations to help educate and forge new policies based on the Values and Rights.
3. Reinforcement Framework
Then we use the Economies for the Common Good as a framework and model to help to reinforce values and rights through policy and economic reinforcement.
4. Global Domestic Policies
Using the Social Values and the Universal Declarations, along with the Economies for the common good framework we can then create policies to move Humanity forward.
- Electoral Reform
- US Machine for War and Terrorism
- Environment and Sustainability
- Planning for an Interstellar Humanity
- Social Policies
- Law Enforcement and Guns
5. Evolving Humanity
Lastly, with all that in place we then work to Evolving Humanity to the next stage of our evolution – a Humanity Beyond War, Poverty, and Suffering.
