Mission Statement

We exist to engineer society’s transition to a direct democracy by educating, inspiring, and igniting a collective force and consciousness necessary to shatter exploitation and respond to genuine world needs.

Description

At The Necessary Society, we envision a world where society is powered by the people's will-where the disproportionate influence of a corrupt system, corporate interests, and select powerful individuals is replaced by a collective decision-making process that prioritizes the wellbeing of all, respects nature, and embodies fairness. We foresee a sustainable world where direct democracy flourishes, allowing for social equity, environmental rejuvenation, and the true empowerment of every individual.

Our existence is a direct response to the glaring disparities and injustices perpetuated by the current system. We reject the paradigm where profit is placed above people and the planet. We reject the notion that this is the final version of society. We reject the outcomes where the few who contribute nothing to society gain the most. We reject the society where children can suffer and the masses go unheard. We are committed to dismantling the existing structures that concentrate wealth and power, marginalize communities, and exploit natural and human resources.

Our ultimate aim is to establish a direct democracy framework across all states and at the national level, creating a governance model that truly echoes the collective aspirations and requirements of society. This transformational shift will ensure that decisions affecting billions are no longer dictated by the few but are deliberated and determined by the many.
