Fundamental principles for state activities

1) The state is here for the people, not the other way around

The state is a services-providing organization. It provides services to its citizens, services which the citizens have paid for.

A citizen is entitled to all information on the activities of the state and its employees, only a fully informed citizen can responsibly determine whether the provided services meet his expectations or whether some changes are in order.


2) The state does not have rights, only duties.

The state must not take any action that it is not explicitly ordered to take by the law.

There is no such thing as the interest of the state, the state does not have a will.

Any actions taken "in the interest of the state" are taken purely in the interest of state officials or in the interest of a certain group of people.


3) The state must represent all citizens, without differentiating between them

The state must not give preferential treatment to any particular group of citizens by its activities.

The only exception is when the state performs its role as the guarantor of  last resort of solidarity between citizens.
