Group Description

Imagine a voting system which:
1. one is a candidate from receiving only one vote from another.
2. all candidates are in a ranked hierarchy in real-time.
3. popularity isn't the only measure, strength of vote is also a factor.
4. it is peer ranking instead of popular ranking.
5. generalist selection is mandatory (two or more).
6. specialist selection is an option.
7. direct referendum votes are an option.
8. can be used in conventional organizations to form executive committees.

Structural Deep Democracy(SD2) is a transitive proxy voting approach to democratic-republicanism. SD2 uses TMMP modified PageRank as a centrality algorithm to analyze votes to determine the center of TRUST and CONSENT in a human trust network, then keeps those leaders accountable with frequent rank recalculations. The top three or five lead such an organization with one of them as the executive. This creates a small and efficient locus of trust and accountability to lead the organization.

PageRank, with the additional constraint of mandating that at least two proxy votes be chosen, Transitive Mandatory Multiple Proxy (TMMP), allows the best leaders to determine who the best leaders are, eliminating the popularity game of conventional populistic-democracy. SD2 can be used by nonprofits, businesses, government entities, but it is intended to be best for grass-roots activism for groups thirty or more, and is scalable to a global level. SD2 can also be used as DIRECT DEMOCRACY, by allowing voters to vote directly on issues AND vote for representatives, creating a DD/RD hybrid that encourages PARTICIPATORY DEMOCRACY.

"The results are amazingly accurate and display the inner dynamics of the group with astonishing accuracy...Nawab is next in seniority and first as a Technician. He definitely deserves centrality."
- Sardar Taimur Hyat-Khan, Leader in Sustainable Development and Chairman, Khidmat Foundation, commenting about a pilot study with Contact Youth.
