There are many correct and simultaneous modes of attack on the problem of the state. They involve decisions and knowledge at many levels and encompassing many individuals and social groups. In other words, no one of us knows "The Answer."
Here in The Zone, networking and affirming jurisdiction seem to be two crucial issues toward building a local based society that is tethered into the gaian ego of peoples. By networking - i mean making sure advances cross rapidly through space to get to people in ways that help them compete in the tasks we attempt to complete. Since the game is not winner take all, the competitions should have a technological transfer component that helps local people apply new technology to the local challenge of their own economy. Keeping people aware enough of what is going on can be done through formal networking with some organizational structure. That structure is built in service to the people and may have many local tap ins for people who have something to connect to. Sort of like 30 baseball teams reporting to the commissioners office. People compete in events of local, regional and continental levels - representing individual common interests, then informally cooperate at the social event associated with the games.
The system of politics currently used favors special interests, so the new system ought to favor any interest - if you put in the time to pursue the interest, you get connected to other people that have spent equivalent time/space units. There can be multipliers and dividents - product and counterproductive work efforts - but the games of competition have to be regulated fairly and evenly. The governance form which holds jurisdiction has employees that are the umpires on the field - seeing that the playing field remains equally rocky for all participants yet appropriated evenly.
