Decentralization

How can we reduce power and responsibility to individuals, institutions, communities and regions?

How can we encourage the flourishing of regionally-based culture, rather than a dominant mono-culture?

How can we have a decentralized, democratic society with our political, economic and social institutions locating power on the smallest scale (closest to home) that is efficient and practical?

How can we redesign our institutions so that fewer decisions and less regulation over money are granted as one moves from the community to the national level?

How can we reconcile the need for community and regional self-determination with the need for appropriate centralized regulation in certain matters?
