Systems of just and sustainable decision making, leadership, responsibility, and regulation

Sociocracy is a governance system designed to protect and apply the values and ideals of a democracy. Unlike most current democracies, it is also a governance structure designed to make sure those values are applied as equally as possible for everyone. It is a social ideal that values equality and the rights of people to determine the conditions under which they live and work, and an effective method of organizing associations, businesses, and governments.
