ABOUT THE PROJECT
The power is a force authorized by the people to govern other people, a complicated system of society administration. The power has special public functions, among which the most important are: 1) freedom of making the Laws to govern the society, 2) possibility of enforcing all members of the society to live under these Laws. As a matter of fact, it is the power to define, where to and which way the whole society should be moving.
On the other hand, the power are the persons very much similar to us. It is clear that the more competent, responsible, decent and statesmanship possessing persons come to power and leave their position in time, the higher quality of power and higher quality of society would there be.
It is hard to escape a conclusion: the decent civil society can be formed up, where each following higher level of power by quality exceeds the subordinate one, i.e. persons at higher level of power are better, than the ones at the subordinate level.
When so, it should be understood that holding various positions in power is not a voluntary process. It directly depends on the model the state applies for its existence. In imperial Russia, the throne passed on to inheritors, and the Emperor appointed to position personally. In the Soviet Russia, people moved upward due to the party membership. Nowadays any seat, including the Presidential chair, one may simply buy in many countries of the World.
Every one of us would wish to live in a decent civil society, where the peace and stability, confidence in the future, opportunity of self-fulfillment become key stone parameters for many generations. For that purpose a decent model of society formation is needed – creation of system of power in the society.
The above stated objectives help to define the main directions of the New philosophy project:
1) collection and analysis of all models offered in Russia for building a decent civil society. Assessment of their positive and negative sides, their efficiency in a short- and long-term prospect. 2) building up a model of a decent civil society, which would be free from system disadvantages.
