Form and Function


To define the form and function of the World Wide Web Court of Public Justice, past, present and future it is necessary to follow the evolution of the traditional political governance institutions in parallel with the evolution of the natural partnership between the Human Family and its media venues, known here as the Public Justice system. If the traditional form of democratic government is considered the way the Human Family governs itself, then the Public Justice system is the conscience that provides regular feedback on the performance of the traditional system.  The real question then becomes, is the traditional system listening to its conscience and is there indeed a continuing and effective forum for such a process of evaluation? 

Out of the need for order and governance, communities of people have always found it necessary to meet, form their institutions of self government and then assign individuals and agencies to oversee and run those institutions.  In order to do so, someone must be appointed as the presiding voice to maintain order, hear different points of view, referee, interpret and present information in an understandable structure and format to the voting public for decisions on behalf of the community. This is a good representation of the basic public forum in action.

Diagram #1 depicts such a community meeting with the mayor presiding, the town’s people as the voting and decision making body, observing and listening, and two opposing points of view presenting the pros and cons of a proposal for town consideration. We can assume for our purpose that the issue at hand is the creation of the local democratic system of government.

Once the governing body is created by community agreement, then our system of community justice is in place.  In the case of our court room in Diagram #2 , we have simply revised the labels of the town meeting evolving into a typical court room environment with the appointed Judge as the presiding voice, a 6 to 12 person representative sample of the people are the jury and the two points of view being presented are the plaintiff and the defendant.  In this instance, however, the points of view are in an irresolvable controversy that requires public intervention through the traditional formalized court / justice system to determine the outcome. This is the typical civil case for consideration.  When a crime is committed and the people are called upon to decide the outcome, the defendant becomes the accused, and must present evidence in defense of his innocence and the plaintiff is the people’s assigned prosecutor charged with presenting evidence to prove the defendant guilty.  In a jury trial, it’s the 6 to 12 person jury representing the people who make the final determination.

Diagram #3 brings us to today’s over-seeing institution of Public Justice providing governance over those who govern; The World Wide Web Court of Public Justice.  This newly defined but all too familiar interactive media / public watchdog provides the much needed function of checks and balances and indeed, the very conscience and accountability of the formal governing legal / political and justice systems of the world.

The structure of the historical court of Public Justice, being a time honored partnership between the media and the general public is essentially the same as it has been for centuries with one main exception for today;  the internet and the magnitude of its use by international media organizations has given Public Justice the broadest jurisdiction in history, providing the Public Justice alternative for all issues involving the correction of political dysfunction within the governing bodies of today to every country and every individual in the world.  The greater the opportunity of bringing individuals together in one forum to deal with the issues of governmental checks and balances, the greater the opportunity of collective agreement, which galvanizes the power of the collective into action; achieving the desired result. The World Wide Web Court of Public Justice is not designed to usurp or replace the existing political / justice systems, however when justice has been corrupted or is simply dysfunctional or not available, and all reasonable attempts have failed for any one individual or group in the world to seek remedies to their legitimate complaints, then the Court of Public Justice becomes the court of last resort.
