Invitation to the 2013 "Beau-Sejour" gathering, October 25-27 in St-Imier, Switzerland

Rethinking Democracy, Money and the Civil System

A small gathering of thinkers, change makers and social entrepreneurs willing to venture outside the box, organised by the Forum for Direct Democracy and

We'll start Friday evening by collecting a bird's eye view of existing and to-be-created projects that we think aim to build the new in the shadow of the old. This will give us a head start, laying out the terrain we will be covering on Saturday.

On Saturday, there will be no presentations, no planned schedule and no predetermined shifts between topics. This gathering will be a group exchange that is moderated only to guide the group in the flow of where it is going. This process will encourage the emergence of fresh, innovative outcomes that shift not the direction but the vision of the future work of all the participants. We will gain a higher understanding of why and how civil society will get to where it is going.

On Sunday we will continue and collect these results, look for ways to take advantage of synergies between the various existing projects and perhaps some new project ideas that have emerged. We will develop a vision of a way forward, identify the key projects that will help along on that path and layout possible directions for future gatherings in a larger, more inclusive context.


Please let me know as soon as possible that you are planning to participate by sending an e-mail to or by calling +41 329 41 41 41 (if you get the message box, please leave a message and I will call you back).

There is no set conference fee. We want financial circumstances to not impede your ability to participate in this gathering as much as possible. We ask participants to pay voluntarily what they can expend for such an event.


If you like help with your travel arrangements or accommodation, do not hesitate to contact us. If you would like us to arrange accommodation for you, let us know how much you want to spend and what comfort level you require. Please do not expect much if you want it to be free. We will provide a shuttle service to and from the conference venue within the surrounding area.


The main venue of the gathering is the Beau-Sejour Hotel near St-Imier:

Virtual roundtable on governance

..."When I think of very large scale state transitions in a very complex network of networks, operating at lots of levels, it seems to me, the transition has to be a fractal one, where things have to be created at a local level which are self-consistent, at the intermediate region level, nation level and global. If a system is well designed, the same principles ought to be applicable at all those levels simultaneously, and hence should be working in parallel at all levels, and change will happen more rapidly at some than others. My strong suspicion is that it will be local that comes first, and then examples of things that work locally will be tried regionally and then tried nationally and then finally adopted global. It's a high level way to prune strategic rules. They should be fractal and operate self-consistency from hyper-local to global."...

Framing politics as problem solving ...The process of governance design itself: "first state assumptions about what the problems are, to define a design challenge as you see it, talk about the resources available, the tools and technologies and other things that we have at our disposal. and then to come up with a prototype."...

...On the tension between individual freedom and collective decision making: "solution is that in a post scarcity world, most things do not need to be collectively decided - only once a conflict arises."...

What would be the incentives that we actually get people to participate... ..."We are passed ideology, ideology is dead, nobody can agree on anything. The only systems that seem to work on the peer-to-peer side are opt-in. Opt-in governance, there won't be one form of governance, there will be multiple competing forms of governance."...

Game design, a form of governance that becomes viral... "At a game theoretic level, it's hard to imagine something that will function to accomplish what needs to be accomplished and be opt-in. If somebody want to build nuclear reactors and does not want to opt-in to the system of governance, they can't be allowed to do that."...

..."Reputation architecture: how does nature itself opt-in to this form of governance? Future generations... They can't opt-in on there own..."

..."Markets are all about allocating scarcity, when they get to a global level you get a kind of copernican system of wheels within wheels of markets all interconnected, that nobody really understands but everybody knows how to co-opt. That hyper concentrates wealth and power. And over the long run that destroys middle classes and drives'em off to the periphery, it drives them all to low level of subsistence, where we all compete against each other for the limited number of jobs and wealth that the hyper concentrated entities allocate to us. That's what the future looks like, if we don't come up with something better to compete with it. There is no way to shut it down through pure violence. It leverages few-to-many systems, and bots. With bots, software bots in particular you can scale a system like that to where a couple of people can manage billions as we gain in sophistication. So, that's the timer on us, on what we are doing here. So, we better get cracking."...

What are the cultural biases that keep us from thinking of other ways of governing?...

..."We live in a two speed society. We have a rapidly self-organising civil society that is operating at a global scale, that's inventing new forms of governance and democracy. And then we have a much slower democratic governance system that is a bit in crisis and that seems to be quite slow at adapting new practices. I think the key is the bridge. We have to find a way that representative democracy can look at civic practices and inspire itself by these new civic practices."...

How can we experiment so that it becomes acceptable to change the existing forms?

Governance activity needs to be designed so that self interest is taken out of the picture, so that one primarily talks about helping to create policies for others, for society and impact on ones own live is neglectable in comparison.

Opt-in wouldn't work in the sense that everybody that wants to do something can just get together and do whatever they want. That is not what opt-in governance means at all, quite the opposite. It means that all other interests have a right to participate as well in the policy making and can therefor suppress activity when needed. Opt-in decisions have no legitimacy for those that were not involved in the process. In fact, they have no legitimacy for anybody that doesn't agree with the outcome. Opt-in decisions also provide no right to act where others are impacted, that did not opt-in to the process.

E-Voting: gesunde Skepsis und OpenSource ist nötig

via Balthasar Glättli:

Parteiübergreifend haben sich junge ParlamentarierInnen heute für ein überlegteres und sorgfältigeres Vorgehen bei E-Voting (vote électronique) ausgesprochen. Die «Generation Internet» ist damit kritischer eingestellt als der Bund.

Die beiden Motionen wurden gemeinsam vorgestellt von Isabelle Chevalley (Grünliberale/VD), Balthasar Glättli (Grüne/ZH), Lukas Reimann (SVP/SG), Jean Christophe Schwaab (SP/VD). Die erste Motion (Erstunterzeichner Jean Christophe Schwaab) will die geplante Erhöhung der Anzahl Leute, die elektronisch abstimmen können, verhindern:

Der Bundesrat verzichtet darauf, den Kantonen eine Erhöhung der Grenze des 
zu elektronischer Stimmabgabe zugelassenen Elektorats auf 50% bewilligen. Er 
verzichtet also auf die im „3. Bericht des Bundesrats zu Vote électronique“ per 
1.1.2014 angekündigte Anpassung der VPR.

Die zweite Motion (Erstunterzeichner Balthasar Glättli) will im Grundsatz Systeme der ersten Generation komplett verbieten, neu zugelassen werden sollen nur Systeme, welche sowohl auf individueller Ebene als auch für das Gesamtresultat eine Verifizierung zulassen. Übergangsweise Ausnahmen sollten allenfalls einzig für die Stimmabgabe von AuslandschweizerInnen möglich sein. Bei sämtlichen Systemen soll eine Offenlegung des Quellcodes zwingend sein (Open Source):

Der Bundesrat passt Art. 27a-27q VPR folgendermassen an:
1. Der Bundesrat stoppt E-Voting-Versuche mit Systemen der ersten Generation.
2. Zugelassen sind per sofort nur Systeme, welche nicht nur die Sicherheit und
   Anonymität der Stimmabgabe gewährleisten, sondern die es auch ermöglichen, 
   dass der/die Stimmberechtigte persönlich die korrekte Übertragung ihrer Stimme 
   überprüft und dass die Abstimmungsresultate ohne Bruch des Stimmgeheimnisses 
   nachträglich verifiziert werden können (Systeme der zweiten Generation). 
3. Ausnahmen sind allenfalls übergangsweise für die Stimmabgabe von 
   AuslandschweizerInnen vorzusehen.
4. Der Quellcode sämtlicher verwendeter Systeme muss zudem vollständig offen 
   gelegt werden (Open Source), um allen Interessierten die Überprüfung von 
   Schwachstellen und Sicherheitslücken zu ermöglichen.

Die Medien haben kürzlich darüber berichtet, dass ein Hacker das Genfer E-Voting-System hacken konnte. Zum Glück geschah dies aus pädagogischer und nicht aus böswilliger Absicht. Der Hacker hat eine Systemfehlkonstruktion ausgenützt, welche als „Ursprungsfehler“ dieses Systems der ersten Generation betrachtet wird. Ein solches Risiko für die Demokratie darf nicht geduldet werden.

Da die Sicherheit zur Zeit offensichtlich nicht gewährleistet werden kann, wäre das geplante Tempo bei der Ausweitung des vote électronique schlicht und einfach schädlich. So erfüllt eine Erweiterung der E-Voting-Versuche nicht die Vorgaben von Art. 8a Abs. 2 letztem Satz BPR („Missbräuche [müssen] ausgeschlossen bleiben. »). Das Vorgehen steht zudem im Widerspruch mit dem Motto, das mehrmals im „3. Bericht des Bundesrats zu Vote électronique“ wiederholt wird: „Sicherheit vor Tempo“.

Das Vertrauen in korrekte Wahlresultate ist für die Akzeptanz von Wahl- und Abstimmungsresultaten zentral. Um dieses notwendige Vertrauen in Vote électronique zu schaffen, muss einerseits der Quellcode der verwendeten Systeme unbedingt offen gelegt werden, damit er auch von Dritten auf mögliche Sicherheitslücken überprüft werden kann. Andererseits muss die Verifizierbarkeit der Resultate individuell – wie zum Beispiel in Norwegen – und auch für das Gesamtresultat gewährleistet sein.

in-vitra Kulturen- und Kunstplattform in Biel-Bienne

Wir setzen uns für die Stärkung und Förderung junger Menschen und unserer multikulturellen Gesellschaft ein. Wir bringen Menschen zusammen um gemeinsam unsere Gegenwart und Zukunft zu gestalten.

Der multikulturelle Reichtum und die Mehrsprachigkeit der jungen Stadtbevölkerung in Biel-Bienne bieten ein hohes kreatives Potenzial. Die Menschen in unserer Stadt kommen aus über 70 Ländern, es werden über 140 Sprachen gesprochen und knapp die Hälfte ist unter 40 Jahren.

Was ist in-vitra?

in-vitra bietet aussergewöhnliche Räumlichkeiten, drei grosse Glasräume, die Tag und Nacht als Plattform unsere kreative Zusammenarbeit von Projekten präsentieren. Ein Atelier und ein Treff dient Begegnung und Austausch. In diesen Räumen soll sich das reiche Potenzial unserer multikulturellen Gesellschaft entfalten.

Was wir tun und wie

Wir wecken Interesse mit Ideen und vernetzen unkompliziert durch Engagement in gemeinsamen Projekten. Wir helfen Fähigkeiten mit Begeisterung in Projekten weiter zu entwickeln. Innovative Ideen und Visionen, die das multikulturelle Zusammenleben fördern, werden hier realisiert und in die Öffentlichkeit getragen.

Im Rahmen des Projekts Infiltrierende Fotografie - Bieler Fototage:

Wie Bieler Biel sehen / Bienne vue

Im von in-vitra angebotenen Rahmenprogramm entwerfen junge Bieler und alle interessierten Besucher Fotocollagen, animiert von Künstlern. Ihre Visionen der Stadt Biel am Wendepunkt zwischen Gegenwart und Zukunft vermitteln sie durch zu Collagen kombinierte Handyfotos. In Ateliers, Austellungen und einer Künstler-Hommage wird zu Food & Beverages, Musik, Diskussionen und Performances individuell kreiert, zusammengearbeitet und Ideen und Visionen ausgetauscht.

Ein besonderer Anlass ist am Samstagabend, den 7. September 2013, mit der offiziellen Eröffnung von in-vitra. Dazu sind ALLE herzlich eingeladen. Sie werden einiges mehr über unsere junge Kunst- und Kulturenplattform erfahren.

Es gibt kein Recht auf unethisches Verhalten.

Andererseits gibt es jedoch jeweils ein gewisses Recht auf Freizügigkeit, was das Verhalten aber nicht ethisch besser macht. Auf dem Recht auf Freizügigkeit zu bestehen, wird somit zum unethischen Verhalten. Einer vieler lebenswerter Widersprüche.

Nuff said.
