Hi Danilo and everybody, nice initiative but oversimplified.

> In present human societies, the most important roles, the powerful
functions of our organization, then the public administration, public
finance, education, culture, information, order, health and safety roles,
are assigned for life to certain persons, leaving the citizens disempowered
and excluded. As a matter of fact the State appears to be disjoined from
Citizenry. These two entities, that for social pact should coincide, should
be one only thing, as a matter of fact are frequently at odds and in
opposition, both in their aims and in their behaviors.

The powerful functions do not appear to be disjoined, they ARE disjoined
with the appearance to be not disjoined. Big difference.

> It is often written in the constitutions of the Countries of the world
that "sovereignty belongs to the people" (meaning to all the people!) but
the reality is vastly different. All the Countries of the world literally
belong to those persons who are assumed for life in the positions of the
State, whether they are representatives or their subordinates. Present
nations are in the hands of a real oligarchy --of a low level but spread
everywhere-- that still lords and subjects in a subtle, sly manner the
remaining part of the population. Nations are so prevented from a natural
evolution towards what the various situational ambits indeed demand.

As long as people are convinced that there ARE different nations nothing's
gonna change. Until that opinion changes all discussions are utopian.

> If we are not in agreement with our government's policies, do not lose
other time: let us concentrate our energies toward the removal of that
particular model of social organization that is the basis for every harmful
behaviour of the Governments and which supports multinational corporations
and economic empires. Public employment for life is the deep, hidden, mean
origin of the majority of the world's problems, be theese in ecology, human
rights, peace, economy or in any other area.

Which army do you have to impose this change ?
So until then the only way to get rid of an existing system is by
democratic means like the Pirate Party.
And no, public employment is not a mean origin of the worlds problems. Bad
management is though.

> Demand, therefore, for what it is impossible to deny the absolute
legitimacy: claim for a public employment at fixed term, equally shared and
of real common belonging. On the day in which this new social system would
come to the fore, no longer, for example, State radio/tv will make
continuous shameless propaganda for the single government thought, nor
public forces (persons that today are also them assumed for life, becoming
so faithful keepers of oligarchyc States) will rage against citizens
rightly demonstrating, least of all a bureaucratic apparatus could exist,
being fertile ground for every kind of corruption and misrule.

Big words to describe the need for changing the 'style' of management and
make better job descriptions / contracts.

> The seeds of a new society, without monopolization and exclusion, based
instead on equal sharing and full participation open for all, will take
root. On that day even such ambitious aims as to see every woman, every man
on Earth having a WORK, and therefore an INCOME, and, even more important,
a CIVIC POWER MINIMUM GUARANTED, will become much more easily attainable.
Unemployment and precariousness, and any other incapacity of the
governments to give an efficacious answer to the exigencies of society,
will become a bad, far memory.

Reasoning from work = income, you make the same mistake in authoritarian
logic. IMO taking responsability =  the right of anticipating the basic
life / culture.

> Public Employment for life is the reef against which all the best dreams
of mankind crush. Public Employment for life is the weak ring of an
otherwise indestructible chain that binds a whole world and keeps it from
achieving social progress and justice. Public Employment for life is the
ring that today, in the interest of all and in a peacefully, legally and
ethically unexceptionable way, we must definitively break.

Again, I do not see this problem of Public Employment in the context you
put it, I see 'only' a wrong conceptualization at large at work.
