Intro

Have you ever wondered why humans are incapable of forming healthy, holistic, inclusive communities? We all live in communities- villages, towns and cities- but they hardly feel like communities. Why are we so slow to respond to shifting dynamics and what prevents us from implementing sometimes simple and obvious solutions?
Greed, corruption, competitiveness, lack of empathy etc are ‘obvious candidates’.
Many animals have many similar traits, so what’s the problem?

Groups of people larger than 30 have the greatest of difficulty speaking together about deep issues within reasonable time constraints, yet we all live in communities of 2000 plus. See the problem?
We also have a great, (often overlooked) biological handicap that affects our large group discussions- People cannot concentrate for more than 10 to 20 minutes which is a big issue if say 300 people come together for a chat and everyone has something important to share.

To overcome our tremendous ‘large group-speak’ disabilities we have developed various managerial structures in the form of committees, councils, teams, representational democracy etc. but they are often clumsy and seriously limited logistically by hierarchical ‘bottle-necks’, poor communications, etc. This primary flaw, our exaggerated reliance on the often over-burdened appointed authorities and leadership, often leads to corruption and various forms of system failures.

Success Stories- The paradigm shifter explained.

In 2011 the mayor of a small town called Jun in Spain introduced a local Twitter platform to connect most of the locals and the municipal personal all together creating the first online Participatory Digital Democracy in the world! (Details in the link below.)

Since then there has been several evolving large scale participatory democratic processes in Madrid, Portugal, Taiwan, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand and others, all using Online Localized Forums to introduce new laws, allocate millions to local initiatives, plus resolve heated or sensitive issues *(with people from all sectors of the local communities participating).
You can view the reports and success stories here on this Facebook page-
Mass Collaborations and Communications
A truly astonishing fact is that you will not find reports of any massive online localized participatory forum failures!!! (Google.)

*(For those who are not on Facebook, all that information will be uploaded to this website soon).

Although the above selected examples are impressive in scale, on closer examination all the examples in the above link have forums that are very limited in their scope and processes. They can only deal with a limited number of subjects within specified parameters and time-frames.

The forum concept presented here (on this demo website), is UNIQUE in that it can facilitate self-regulated various mass processes simultaneously, connecting locals not only with each other, but also with the many processes that affect them (24/7, with many languages participating in real-time).

One town, One voice, One people!
Why not?

  4. Hi nice website https://google.com

  5. How do I get involved? Can I suggest project ideas to the Mass Collaborative without becoming a member? Who do I contact?

    • i have great difficulty in visualising your proposed Johannesburg Forum Concept working..There are too many practical Problems 1/ People with no clear plan of alternatives all have a lot to say mainly not agreeing to whatever is put forward. 2/ The world as we see it today did not start with a documented plan, but evolves over time . When Henry Ford made the first internal combustion engine. he put in place a mechanical pollution of the air that we breathe . Once started it had a mind of its own , and evolved to the present day, when it is now almost impossible to change. Farmers Mass production of Food need tractors, Harvesters etc, and cannot be changed over night. So there is no miricle solution that a forum can propose and implement .Any proposed change has a knock on effect that ultimately destroys the whole delicate balance of billions of people living ,eating , clothed, educated, water, sewers, hospitals, and a multitude of factors that are all held together by a very thin balance. Any forum of people may be able to change a small town of like minder people ,but that’s where it ends. From then onwards Differences of opinion and no formulated plans would wreck all forums… This is a wishful thinking proposal but cannot work in practice.

      Whatever your concerns may be you can be sure that if your local community had a local forum, they would attend to any matter or process needed to make the forum function optimally. Instead of deciding how and what people should talk about before the forum is established,(as per usual), those matters are voiced and dealt with by the forum itself. My full response in the comment below.

    • A bit negative but I do hear you. EXAMPLE I am against 5G. I know a lot about it so am not talking nonsense. I have been on summits and read up on the harm to health, environment and privacy. Now, along comes some schmuck who works for Vodacom and makes money from 5G so starts being rude to me. How could this issue be solved on here better than on the classifieds. There will always be opposing views. How could this forum help. And with that sample it doesn’t matter on anyones opinion because the New World Order decides it will be rolled out ANYWAY. Right through my utopian village. Anyway.No harm in trying this out

        Hey Karen,The communities that have succeeded have removed the concept of us and them… one town one forum.
        You don’t like 5G, but what you going to do about it?
        Protest?
        The people in Madrid have stopped protesting… they have a local forum. If they don’t want something, they have a place where they can discuss it.
        I have re-written the site and I hope it reads better now and answers your questions better.
        Let me know what you think please-

      Madrid stopped protesting when they got a forum. They are not like minded- 16 million people, extremely volatile, corrupt government and so on.
      Perhaps this will help better explain how the process works…. the devil is in the details-

  7. Collaborations

    Dave you are correct…. everything starts somewhere and needs to grow.
    The astonishing thing about all the local forums that exist is that they have all succeeded and there are NO failure reports. That is because they use Hive mentality instead of our traditional herd mentality. A large well connected group of people sharing a common local and common issues is able to overcome issues in a manner you and I cannot even begin to imagine….. the power of Mass Collaborations!
