I followed the link, and what piqued my interest initially is that Kees Boeke was a Quaker, and my male line ancestry stems from an English Quaker immigrant who knew the Founder George Fox and the Colonizer William Penn, although I personally am not of that persuasion. If I am understanding it correctly, this idea of Sociocracy seems to start with each of us, individually, and perhaps first of all we need to know our "Self", as true Philosopher-Kings should, if the interpretation of Plato by Pierre Grimes is correct. The "Neighborhood Meeting" at the lowest level that Boeke describes seems to correlate somewhat with the "Town Hall Meeting", which so many of us have already, and Claude has mentioned that, though we are all together there numerically equal as human beings, there is bound to be someone who is smarter, richer, or more influential, etc. than others at this meeting (first among equals?), and perhaps he/she would be invited to be a representative to the next higher level, the "Ward Meeting", IF he/she is deemed as trustworthy for that position by his/her peers. Could "Democracy" and "Hierarchy" work together that way, or am I being naive?"Sociocracy", or "Dynamic Governance".
This is where I founder, or perhaps rather stall, on this idea. Though it seems to me that we already have a model for the Neighborhood Meeting with the Town Meeting, how does the next higher level, the Ward Meeting, get organized? I can see about 150 people fitting into a Town Hall for a Neighborhood Meeting, but then you need some kind of place and pretext to hold a Ward Meeting of about 6000 people, which is quite a different story. This pyramid "scheme" of moving onward and upward could take many years to accomplish, practically speaking, if at all, in my opinion, especially if one hopes to involve the whole world in this eventually. However, I realize that this is a new concept for me to grasp, and I may be missing something that I haven't learned about it yet.
To conclude my initial observations on a rather whimsical note, this is a rather auspicious time to discuss a possible "new world", as Archbishop James Ussher calculated that the Creation of our "old world" began at the "entrance of the night preceding" October 23, 4004 BC. Happy Birthday, Great Mother Earth!
