RANKING OF COUNTRIES ACCORDING TO LIBERTARIAN DEGREE = DEGREE OF DEMOCRACY - FOR ALMOST ALL COUNTRIES WORLD WIDE.

The System Theory of Anarchist Political Economy and Social Organization Research

THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC ALLIANCE
* LIBERAL SOCIAL DEMOCRACY *

PREFACE

Anarchy and anarchism mean "system and management without ruler(s), i.e. co-operation without repression, tyranny and slavery". In short an-arch-y = [(an = without - arch = ruler(s)) - y = system (included optimal order and law) and management, as, say, in monarch-y]. Anarchy and anarchism are efficient and fair system and management without top heavy societal pyramid economical and/or political/administrative - in income and/or rank, i.e. significant horizontal organization - real democracy. Real Democracy always means Real, i.e. including Green, Democracy. Anarchy and anarchism = liberal social-democracy.

NB! Anarchism, the libertarian and democracy, and degrees of this, is 100 % a question of influence on decisions. All other things are only relevant as far as they affects the influence on the societal decisions. To be more precise: anarchism, the libertarian and democracy is a question of influence on the societal decisions by the People = the Bottom of the societal pyramid, the decisions usually and mainly taken by the Top of the societal pyramid, i.e. the Bureacracy (authorities) broadly defined in privat and public sector.

The degree of democracy = influence on the societal decisions by the People = the Bottom of the social pyramid, mainly taken by the Bureaucracy (= authorities broadly defined in private and public sector) - the Top of the social pyramid, measuredrelatively as a percent degree between 0 % and 100 %, that is a precise measure on how much the People govern = democracy, i.e. the degree of it. Democracy, and more or less of it, is central to societal politics broadly defined, both economical and political/administrative, and in reality Real Democracy (NB! i.e. always including Green) and Full Democracy as an ultimate aim, is the one and only policy in the interest of the People, i.e. People's Politics. Real Democracy has a degree of democracy equal to 50 % or more, both A. economical and B. political/administrative, and Full Democracy has 100 % degree of democracy. The degree of democracy = the libertarian degree = the anarchist degree (within anarchy & anarchism), i.e. 100% - the authoritarian degree. Zero, 0 %, influence by the People on the societal decisions, means no tendency of democracy at all, zero degree of democracy, and the most ultra-authoritarian and totalitarian systems (extreme ultra-fascism, see map), i.e. 100% authoritarian = 100% authoritarian degree; the authoritarian degree is 100% - the degree of democracy = libertarian degree, in this 100% ultra-authoritarian case = 0 % degree of democracy = libertarian degree.

Totalitarian systems are all economic-political systems to the left, middle and right of the EP-Map, with more than ca. 67 %, exact 666,666 ... per thousand - authoritarian degree, i.e. ultra-authoritarian hell systems. Typically, the role of 1. propaganda (= lies, untrue information, also Orwellian "1984" Newspeak type lies and manipulations of the language) in dealing with the non-totalitarian world, and the use of 2. terror, are essential to this form of archy/rule/government. Totalitarian regimes seek to dominate every aspect of everyone's life, sometimes as a prelude to try world domination. 1. Cultural, i.e. intellectual, spiritual, and artistic initiative is dangerous to totalitarianism, as 2. mere political opposition. The consistent persecution of every higher form of intellectual activity by the totalitarian rulers springs from 1. their natural resentment against everything they cannot understand, and  2. total domination does not allow for free initiative (an important anarchists principle) in any field of life, for any activity that is not entirely predictable by the ruler(s).

Totalitarianism in power invariably replaces all first-rate talents, regardless of their sympathies, with those crackpots and fools whose lack of intelligence and creativity is still the best guarantee of their loyalty. Important strategic aspects are the use of 1. ultra-authoritarian controlled front organizations, 2. fake governmental agencies, and 3. esoteric false doctrines as 4. a means of concealing the ultra-authoritarian reactionary-radical nature of totalitarian aims and means, from the non-totalitarian world. Individual isolation and loneliness are important preconditions for totalitarian domination. The purpose of all these manipulations broadly defined is to gain economical and political/administrative power including money, as much as possible for the totalitarian ruler(s)/arch(s). [Inspired by Hannah Arendt (1906-1975): The Origins of Totalitarianism.]]

The Anarchist Economic-Politcal Map describes & maps mainly all types of economic-political systems of the world along two dimensions, A. the economical and B. the political/administrative, and sheds light on the authoritarian degree = 100% - the libertarian degree & 100% - the degree of democracy, of the systems in general, including 1. marxism, 2. fascism (including populism) 3. the third alternative (Frisch) - anarchy & anarchism, and 4. liberalism, and 16 different types of systems within these 4 main forms. The map consists of 4 Quadrants, one for each of these four main forms of systems, and 16 Sectors for different types of systems within these four main forms, four Sectors for each Quadrant.

This system theory is also about 1. calculating the societal degree of democracy = libertarian degree = anarchy degree (within the quadrant of anarchism on the map), from A. the degree of economical democracy (socialism vs capitalism defined in terms of influence by the People) and B. the degree of political/administrative democracy (autonomy vs statism defined in terms of influence by the People), and 2. presenting political-econometric indicators for empirical, practical statistical estimation of these variables. The degree of democracy = libertarian degree = 100 % - the authoritarian degree, see the EP-map below. The degree of democracy is 100%, and the authoritarian degree is 0%, at the top of the map, the democratic ideal = full democracy. The degree of democracy is 100% = libertarian degree is 100% = anarchy degreee is 100%, i.e. the democratic ideal, full democracy, is also the libertarian and anarchist ideal, where the People have all and everything to say, equal to 100% influence on the societal decisions by the People, the decisions mainly taken by the Bureaucracy = Top of the societal pyramid.

This system analysis also includes political-econometric research, indicators for A. the degree of economical democracy (socialism vs capitalism defined in terms of influence by the People) and B. the degree of political/administrative democracy (autonomy vs statism defined in terms of influence by the People) aggregated to the societal democracy degree = libertarian degree, for a whole system, say, for a whole country or an organization. There are several political-econometric indicators for practical statistical measurement of influence by the People in democratic perspective, among these are two indexes; 1. the Rank-difference-index - RDI indicating how top-heavy the political/administrative rank-pyramid is, and 2. Gini-index for income, indicating how top-heavy the economical pyramid is. Top-heavyness of a societal pyramid in this connection contributes to less influence by the People it is assumed, but there are also some other indicators in this political-econometric research, see chapter V. B. below.

The research has also, via using the political-econometric indicators combined with the best of the bad lot of UN, other international plus national statistics, and some well educated guess, calculated preliminary estimates of the influence by the People, the Bottom (of the social pyramid), on the societal decisions, mainly taken by the Bureaucracy, the Top (of the pyramid), relatively as a percentage degree between 0 % and 100 %, = the degree of democracy, for almost all of the countries in the world, and also ranked the countries according to democracy degree (= libertarian degree). More information about this topic, including the concrete statistical indicators used, and so on, see chapter V. B. below and footnotes at ranking. NB! Authoritarian degree of more than 100%, i.e. for extreme evil authoritarian economic-political hell systems located below the map, is not impossible, but is just briefly mentioned in this document.

The estimates are approximately figures. © IIFOR/IJA ISSN 0800 - 0220 2007 and later. Anarchy = here social-individualist anarchism; Soc. dem. = social democrat marxism; Populist = here moderate parliamentarian democratic fascism; Cons. lib. = Conservative liberalism. See economic-political map at System theory and EP-map. Ranking of countries according to libertarian degree, estimates of the libertarian degree in general, and information on methodology, see Ranking and System theory - Chapter V.B.. According to ThesaurusLegend: approximately = (of quantities) imprecise but fairly close to correct. Thus: The estimates are approximately figures = The estimates are imprecise but fairly close to correct figures. We have used " , ", the European standard instead of American/UK standard, i.e. " . " as decimal separator. The term "ca" is an abbreviation for the latin circa, which means about or approximately. A gini index below 35 indicates socialism, and above indicates capitalism.
