Handover of Power - English Version

Structure of the book series

With this book series I would like to give the world an overall concept that can be used like a toolbox. With it, every person is able to build a family, a company, a city, a state or a federal state together with other people, which satisfies everyone involved. The volumes can be seen as tools.

The summary gives an overview of the overall concept, so that one can quickly and easily find where what is described in more detail and how everything is connected. Roughly speaking, it is a table of contents as continuous text that summarises the content of all volumes in only five percent of the number of pages.

The derivation describes the causes that made the book series necessary and possible in the first place. It contains the criticism we know from the daily news that so spoils our everyday lives and all too often robs us of hope for a better future. But because this series of books was created to give hope to everyone, no one is attacked personally, but rather a view of joyful solutions is offered.

The constitution is a summary of the overall concept in a legal text with paragraphs and numbered sections. As befits a constitution, all its articles are described in more detail in the volumes about remits and linked with footnotes. To ensure that it is ready for immediate use, it was modelled on the constitutions of the Canton of Bern and Switzerland. All adopted formulations are marked so that one can quickly and easily look up how these formulations are already implemented in practice in Switzerland.

After these three volumes, which are intended to give an overview, the following 18 volumes deal with all the departments. Because everyone can remember 18 things, one party and one ministry will be responsible for one remit. In the volumes about the 18 remits of state organisation, digital affairs, media, labour, planned economy, social market economy, barter economy, free market economy, finance, innovation, education, health, infrastructure, security, justice, foreign affairs, integration and family, proposed solutions are formulated as an overall concept. In the process, it becomes clear what a government programme for each ministry would have to look like and which areas can only be worked on together with other ministries. Footnotes refer to the chapters in the other volumes. In this way, all volumes become a mesh of ministries that takes into account the interdependencies in political states. The separation into 18 remits makes it easier for citizens and readers to assign responsibilities.

All 18 volumes are structured similarly because all ministries should be structured similarly in implementation.

At the beginning, the goal is described. Then the departments of the ministry follow. Each ministry has a central department, which takes care of staff and organisation, and a management department, which is there for the minister and cooperates with other ministries and the public. The European Department is responsible for cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the appropriate ministries in the other Member States. What is special about all these departments is that they divide up the work by specialising in their area of expertise. For example, the digital service of the central department from the Ministry of Digital Affairs also takes care of information technology (IT) in all other ministries and their agencies. This bundles expertise, shares recipes for success, avoids mistakes and saves costs. The remaining departments are different in each ministry and take care of the implementation of all projects in their remit. Finally, the introduction describes the tasks of the respective ministry that are necessary to achieve the goal described at the beginning. Roughly speaking, the table of contents is written as running text in the description of tasks.

In the main section, proposed solutions are described in the form of laws, procedures, authorities or examples. The descriptions are structured like a non-fiction book about a reality that does not (yet) exist. The mere theory, however, is described so pictorially that it reads more like political science fiction.

The conclusion deals with the changeover to the new system. It describes sequences of measures for a successful changeover or which laws or authorities should be unified, split up or abolished. Finally, the conversion of the old ministries is described. Using the example of the organigrams of German ministries and the constitutions of the Canton of Bern and the Swiss Confederation, the basic needs of a state are addressed in the book series. In the Constitution volume, all adopted formulations are in italics or underlined and associated footnotes indicate which article was cited. In the last chapter of the volumes about the remits, the adopted keywords of the respective organigrams of the ministries of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Federal State of Bavaria are listed. This makes it clear which department or division will be moved or abolished when the new system is introduced.

To return to the example of the toolbox, the first three volumes are the analytical tools that give the craftsman an understanding of what kind of building site he is dealing with, how he wants to plan his work steps and what measurements he takes for this. The volumes on the 18 resorts are special tools that do one thing very well, but can also support other special tools. In this way, the reader can develop an understanding without being overwhelmed by the multitude of possibilities. He can become a master builder for a new kind of political system for democratic interaction, be it in his family, his company or his community. In order not to leave all the motivated and convinced readers alone with their thirst for action, there is a contact form on the last page of each volume. This can also be found here on the website. This allows people to connect who would like to put the contents of the book into action together.
