Neo-Sovereignism: Guidelines and Conclusions
When it comes to the term “law” neo-sovereignists are very reluctant to use it when determining policies for the country, city, municipality that they live in. “Law” implies that there’s a superior sovereign entity that is ruling over one’s life and that’s entirely the opposite of what neo-sovereignism stands for. Therefore, neo-sovereignists will always opt to use the terms “guidelines” and “conclusions”.
In the context of neo-sovereignism, Guidelines are a set of recommendations that address a specific matter, topic, issue or event. Guidelines are used to determine specific Conclusions that need to be reached at an agora.
Guidelines are also intended to guide and assist a Governance Council when making decisions that are not explicitly covered in the texts of the Conclusions.
From a neo-sovereign perspective, Conclusions are the “laws” of the land, the city, the municipality or the community. It are not laws in the sense that they can be unilaterally imposed, since the individual sovereignty is superior to the Governance Council’s.
In exceptional cases only, such as a murder or an other severe crime (which is determined and defined at the agora), a Conclusion may be enforced by the Governance Council, in accordance with the agora’s consent, in order to let justice be served.
