There are four main thrusts in the mission of the Plebiscitary, in order to effect more equality and access to governing than ever before possible. Each of these is a step in the right direction, but without all four protocols fulfilled, liberty and true democracy can never be realized.

The first protocol is to encourage transitioning from representational government to direct democracy by plebiscite, at all levels of government, which will eliminate special interest control of the political process, and far better reflect the will of the people, than can any small group of representatives of them.

The second protocol necessary for a renaissance of liberty, is to leave behind simple 50+1% majorities as deciding factors on legislation, forever, and move the bar higher, to a supermajority, at least a double majority (66%), to create laws to which we all must adhere.

The third mandatory protocol for ensuring the will of the public is truly reflected in the political process, is that access to the ballot process for voted initiatives should be made simple and readily accessible to all from their digital devices using a popularity based system for initiatives that must rise to supermajority status in order to become law. This combines the initiative and voting process, efficiently, giving access to all and affords society the ability to draw from the vast resources in human potential of the entire populace, for solving our common problems and reaching our common and individual goals.

The fourth protocol is also equally important, whereby a reform in how votes for a particular issue are counted – Abstentions must always count as No on any particular issue, so that the default position of all voters, is to not pass legislation unless they specifically mobilize their efforts to support it. The opposite situation holds true now, where people must mobilize their efforts to stop bad legislation installed by minorities, because abstentions are removed from the equation altogether.
