: Each man has the right to:
: - Cast one personal vote
: - Receive votes from others
: - Recast votes received
: - Recall those votes and cast them for another

: Votes must be given to one personal acquaintance

: A representative must have not less than twice the votes of any one of
: his electors

: The highest representative rules

Sounds like one of those libertarian-anarchist shell games to me. My suspicions are aroused by the lack of any information regarding the mode of production already in existence when this 'constitution' goes down, for one thing. Would you recommend such a democratic arrangement at each workforce? Any democratic arrangement on the workforce? This business of amassing votes like stocks is very suspicious. The 'highest representative rules'---as in representative singular? Considering the centralization of both industry and democracy at present, this scheme is probably just what's going on now.
