Main World is the first worldwide democratic website that allows you to virtually influence the future of the World about given topics such as education, economics, politics, science, ethics, environment, security and many others.
The decisions you are asked to make are based on shared values which you want the World to aim to.
Those values are chosen by subscribers and continually updated and can relate to peace, harmony, wealthy, social justice, education and
health care for everyone, common choices, unpolluted environment, poverty reduction.
Everyone can make decisions according to their conscientiousness and their own concepts on ethics, culture and religion, giving their personal contribution for a better World. The data might as well be processed by a sophisticated algorithm that results in predicting whether the initial values proposed can be reached or not.
In an experimental section of the website you can compare your choices with other people's choices by means of an advanced decisional method.
The final purpose is to validate a decision when shared by all participants, no one excluded.
Decisions made by this way can be very different from those ones made by the conventional method of majority implemented on the website, indicating that the future of the World has to take into
consideration the general interest.
In the 'Learn' section you can improve your knowledge on the given opics, so that you can make aware decisions.
Interestingly, the decisions following the gathering of information and a deep study are more responsible, mature and exposed to be challenged by the comparison with other people's choices.
As a figure of speech contrasted to "Main Street," the term "Wall Street" can refer to big business interests against those of small business and the working of middle class (Wikipedia).
With this name I want to compare the decision-making power of the powerful of the Earth who decide the fate of the World to the power of non-existent people.
