Voices of Humanity - Order out of Chaos
finding our common humanity across
all national, religious and cultural boundaries

Welcome! The mission of Voices of Humanity (VoH) is to build an online community that will heal the world, bringing order out of chaos. VoH technology gives every community its own collective voice in an exchange capped by the Voice of Humanity-as-one. Once we take off, we will zoom!

More About Voices of Humanity

In the conversation between the communities of Planet Earth, women and men will use their collective voices to persuade the nations to cooperate. A kindly and intelligent human unity with diversity built-in is ours for the taking!!! Your participation could make the difference.

The collective Voices of Women, Men, Youth, Experience and Wisdom build gender and age equality into the foundations of the VoH online community. “Geographic levels” allow the scope of the online discussion to shift from Planet Earth to National, State, Metro and City levels. The global voice of women certainly, and perhaps also of youth can be expected to take the conversational lead. This global strength will reach down to the local level and empower women and youth everywhere.

Voices of Humanity is an initiative of Collective Communication, Inc. (CCI), a California non-profit. Roger Eaton as President of CCI is the project leader. The Board of CCI is looking to bring in women from around the world to take the lead on the Voices of Humanity initiative with the election of a woman as President of CCI by the end of 2016. The VoH online community is implemented via InterMix open source software at github under the AGPL license.

How it Works

The underlying idea is simple. Members of communities write messages and then vote on them. From new moon to new moon, the votes are counted up and the highest rated messages are made available. The top message overall is taken as the Voice of Humanity-as-one. The highest rated message written by a women as rated by women is the Voice of Women and so forth. These “winners” are easily accessed by clicking the “Voices of Humanity” button in the online forum. In other words, instead of voting to elect people, we vote to elect messages.

After geographic levels, the next major feature is communities and hashtags. It is easy to join or leave or create a community, and hashtags are also easily created simply by adding them to a forum posting. At this point (November 7, 2016), communities and hashtags are almost fully implemented. Coming by the end of the year, communities will be connected via “networks”. These networks will be organically created by the participants from the bottom up rather than inflexibly instituted from the top down. Finally, and this is going to be tough to do, the hope is to enable the communities and hashtags to be arranged in flexible hierarchies, also to be created bottom up by the participants rather than instituted from the top down.
