VeniVidiVoti Library

A VeniVidiVoti Library is a web site where a community of persons can democratically write texts of (m)any type(s): constitution, book of laws, novel, newspaper, petition, specifications, rules, poem, etc. The principles are the most democratic possible, directly linking the power of a library to the number and quality of persons actively collaborating. It is in fact an attempt at a political system combining representative and participative democracies. Internationalisation of every text element can also be done collaboratively.

            Project is now dead

            Although the code is still on sourceforge, the projet itself is not improved on anymore.

            Instead there is now "parlement" (, a Ruby on Rails project, much much simple in scope, but still targeting Direct Democracy on Internet.

            See parlement (, and don't hesitate to test!
