A library of society's ideas, ideologies, and world-views
a tech-development library focused on creating new ways of collecting, categorizing, and presenting information online.
...and how we define and defend our human rights, civic resources, industrial development, and everything from international to interpersonal relations. The Society Library's mission is to archive humanity's ideas, ideologies, and world-views and present them comparatievely for future generations to more holistically understand, scrutinize, and more willfully choose to adopt or adapt.
Humanity passes down ideas, ideologies, and world-views generationally - through various types of socialization. The Society Library believes that as the internet becomes an increasingly significant socializing agent, centralizing humanity's ideas, ideologies, and world-views into one database will be a necessary educational resource which may help overcome filter bubbles, echo-chambers, and other world-view biases as well as create more intentional generational inheritance of the ideas which affect public life. We want to contribute to a culture of free and open minds by making humanity's ideologies and world-views easier to consume; in scope and depth.
The Society Library is inspired by Benjamin Franklin's Junto club, in which debates were conducted "in the sincere spirit of inquiry after truth, without fondness for dispute or desire of victory." In the same spirit, the Society Library's mission is to archive and contextualize humanity's ideas, ideologies, and world-views in sincere inquiry after truth, understanding, and education. Our mission is an educational one, therefore the archiving of information is processed through an inter-coded content analysis platform to detect and defend against our potential bias as we systematically identify, organize, and present information in the library.

The Internet Government is a developing program which will be a digital platform on which people may upload their perspectives to be represented in a programmed political deliberation. Essentially, politics, without politicians. This effort is to help identify the valid logical arguments and incorrigible values of each perspective applied to a given debate topic and generate responsive legislative suggestions which can be scored on more sophisticated mathematical thresholds than just approval by majority rule.

Recycle Your Essays is a campus-based campaign in which students donate their scientific essays to the Society Library database, to be received and treated as unique qualitative data sets for the library's use. By working with student-led environmental organizations, students can collect and "recycle" essays - digitize the content for submission to the library, and then compost or recycle the papers and paperclips/staples. Students essays can also be submitted or donated online. The essays will processed via content analysis and applied for educational and archival purposes --- because intelligence is a terrible thing to waste.
Information arrives to our minds from a variety of socializing agents and media sources. Teaching critical thinking skills is necessary for new generations to navigate sources of information so as to not be impressionable towards misinformed, misrepresented, abbreviated, or extreme information. The PIWPEW (People of the Internet of the World Public Educational Wavelength) channel is an educational series which teaches kids of various ages about logic, the history of ideas, science comprehension, and critical thinking.
