For the development of the Manheaven Project,
Fossil Politics is a necessary step before lifesaving democracy.

Remember, democracy never lasts long.
It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself.
There never was a democracy yet
that did not commit suicide
John Adams

The essence and origin of democracy, arguably, is dividing up work, not "people rule" or the intervening concept of divisioning people to rule. The democratic process evolved to legitimize the logical right of each person to earn and own their daily bread by the sweat of their brow. All definitions of democracy which have lasted more than a few regimes have attempted to establish people's right to work and receive the fruits of their work, to own their labor. The Greek origin of democracy, in word and work, was divisioning of people to rule--demos cratia. To rule on what? The use of their time to survive--work! Can there be any greater embodiment of democracy than democratic capitalism  and 24 in 4: By better managing our human resources, we can have a 24 hour workweek in 4 years with more time for self, family, church and community. Or, if we do not share the work through the timeclock then we will share it through higher rates of crime, inflation, interest and stress. We can share job time or jobless crime.

Better democracy decreases the time between problem-origin and problem-solution. Optimal democracy minimizes the time-lost. Optimal democracy requires level rights.

Democracy versus depotism compared to fitness vs. adiposity

  1. Benefits can only come from exercising ballot or body.

  2. If people won't exercise ballot or body then fat

  3. Without exercising democracy or body, people suffer pork or porkers.

  4. The benefits of democracy are like the benefits of dieting--both require regular exercise of each.

ABC Index


  1. Democracy as divisioning of people to work--demos cratia. Consider how an individual rules on the problems of his life: He works. Work is solving problem.

    1. For people to rule on their problems (demos cratia) they must work.

    2. To have optimal democracy, one must have optimal work or divisioning of work--see optimals.

    3. To have optimal work, one must have an optimal workweek so that work is divisioned optimally among abled-bodied workers.

    4. To have optimal workweek, the length of the workweek must be adjusted to have no overtime while people are unemployed, underemployed or misemployed.

    5. An optimal workweek is a must part of the Manheaven Project to save life on earth--the primary moral imperative.

  2. Democracy as a divisioning of people primarily to work rather than to rule because if one does not work, one cannot rule the probems out of one's life. A priori to a people ruling on problems is individuals working enough to solve the problems or cost of living. As the Washington habitual politicians show, rules don't solve problems if people don't work. (Playthetic)

  3. Democracy is nothing more than a self-similar expansion of basic four-steps of problem-solving: define, prescribe, organize and motivate.

  4. Like the interesting relations of legere/legein in forming the inter-related words that are infrastructure of Romance languages and daily activities so is it interesting that Greece gave humanity the problem-solving twins of democracy and economics. Optimal democracy solves the public problems shared by individuals. Ecos nomos solves the private problems sowed by individuals.
