This was my halfway prize from my municipal liaisons for passing 25K words for NaNoWriMo last night.
Yesterday’s writing: inventing a government for Mars. It’s a parliamentary representative democratic republic with a unicameral parliament. And it’s got parliamentary sovereignty, too: it’s a committee of Parliament that determines the constitutionality of laws before they become Law, so there’s none of this screwing around with unconstitutional laws until someone has the wherewithal to sue it up to the Mars Supreme Court. And Mars laws are written and enacted with build-in feedback loops for quality assurance (yes, I got this idea out of a book), so that they’re evaluated to see if they’re effective, and are amended or tossed if they’re not.
Those are just some of the features of Mars Government. I spent lots of words on it.
There wasn’t a Dr. Seuss prize book for growing up Geek.
