Our political and economic systems in the western world now seem well established. Yet we are far from the democratic ideal, a model of government, "by the people, for the people". The purpose of this essay is to go in depth into the idea of letting citizens express themselves on the type of society they wish, and considering the synthesis of these data defines an objective given by the citizens to the decision-makers. This idea establishes a paradigm shift that leads to elaborate new institutions: a new economic model, improved decision-making processes, and new ways to promote decision-makers, while guaranteeing an efficient and dynamic system. These give shape eventually to a new model of society, a " collaborative " model, where everyone finds their logical place.
