Re: Discussion for the Constitution Table of Contents ¶
What about science and innovation? How come these do not get their own chapters? Shouldn't there be a basis for a scientific strategy and methodology built in right into the constitution of Asgardia?
In Article 36, we can change "Decision-Making and Implementation" to "Decision-Making and Reimplementation" - this change would accent the transitive nature of science as a collective effort of understanding the Universe and would imply that governance is modeled by insight. (As any model, it's expected to be succeeded by a better one)
In chapter V, I propose we add another entry "Innovation security" - this would cover Asgardian efforts to produce, disseminate and use scientific, methodologic and technological insight at a steady, sustainable and reliable pace. Understanding the pace of innovation is critical when exploring new basic research areas to invest into.
Also in chapter IV, I'd add "Meritocracy" - it's the paradigm we recognize in science, and as a scientific platform we will surely encounter problems where democratic and meritocratic principles clash. This should be mentioned in our Constitution. ( credit, where credit is due )
