Leadership and Organization [IC][WIP]




STRUCTURE AND ORGANIZATION

Resilient Acceleration is neither a supranational organization nor an executive international body. Rather, it is an advocacy group; a political alliance, structured as such, acting as such, whose primary activity is to lobby, pressure, and communicate with national governments.
.

Forum
The Forum, or (pejoratively) General Meeting of Shareholders, is every member of Resilient Acceleration. Currently, there are 616 full members from all across the world, representing various interests, RA-aligned political parties, movements, NGOs, and businesseses that supports the organization's mission of resilient accelerationism. The Forum also contains 1300 more "interns"–lower caste billionaires, millionaires, politicians, and scientists—though they lack voting rights. As the organization's highest body, the Forum holds an exclusive right to obtain information and make decisions for the organization.

The Forum exists as a convention (whether online or offline) of all full and intern members, and is divided into two kinds. The first is the Annual Meeting, which is obligatory for the Board to call every 12 months. Its purpose is to set the annual budget and agenda, review comissioners activities, and finally appoint a new Board and Speaker—where incumbents can reappointed without term limits. The second, Special Meetings, are called by the Board to decide or convene on issues they deem important.

Being founded by tech entrepreneurs, the majority of RA members loathes top-down decision making processes ala Illuminati. They prefer consensus, similar to software development process, aided by an open-source artificial intelligence to make the process rapid and easy. In fact, under Speaker Arka Pasca's administration, special meetings has been called at an average of twice month, setting a tradition of consensus-based leadership. In this process, every member has a different "weight" based on how much financial, political, or institutional powers a member have—similar to common general shareholders' meeting. Decided and updated in real time by an AI, this weight is represented by a grade of letter, with 75 H-ranked member being equal to a single SS-ranked member. Through the same process, RA also put the opinion of the public into consideration, to make sure that those decision are implemented smoothly.

Membership are public, and in general, each member is a representative of an entity, such as a political movement or corporation.

It is quickly apparent that most organization members largely cam from one of these three factions:

  1. Multinational tech corporations,

  2. Large, pro-businesses, pragmatic conservative parties, and

  3. Non-governmental organizations, movements, and academia.

This diversity reflects the true nature of the RA as a joint alliance of various groups, as opposed to a top-down secret organization ruled by an all-powerful central committee. In fact, some members, especially Eurosceptics parties in continental Europe, are opposed to the organization's missions and joined forces only to work together in bringing down one of the organization's top worldwide "rival", the EU and its protectionist, pro-privacy regulatory regime.

Board
The Board is the sole holder of executive powers within the organization, responsible for its day-to-day operations. Members, called Commissioners, are appointed and dismissed by the Forum at a convention, with the Speaker having the right to both appoint temporary commissioners and call for emergency conventions. Each Comissioner is the head of a Comission, which is comparable to a ministerial department. The Board also serves as a "representative council" of the dominant countries and corporations within the New Community, since all Comissioners already posess sweeping influence in their respective countries or industries and thus are expected to be able to implement Board decisions with relative ease.

As Resilient Acceleration is structured more like a pressure group organization or political party alliance, rather than an actual executive government, the primary job of Comissioners are to be the world's "prime lobbyist" communicating, and pressuring national governments to pass and implement RA decisions. This is also why many national political party bosses are given top spots in the Board, as they can directly tell their national party, parliament, and government back home what to do.

Speaker
Unlike the Board, the Speaker does not have any executive power. The role of the speaker is to be the "head of state", chief representative, spokesperson, and public relations manager for the organization. This role is especially critical since by design, the Board's authority is actually pretty limited, as the organization operates as a "consensus-based, down-top community", so a figurehead to maintain unity is necessary. Meanwhile, the executive authority of the organization's current (and as of today, only) Speaker, Arka Pasca, as a "head of government" instead comes from his position as Prime Comissioner, which is a separate role. It has to be noted that the Prime Comissioner position can't actually pass anything significant, as executive authority lays on the Board as a whole.
