1.Personal - Authority

In the world of Netizens, there are not effective authorizing elements of the real world, for example age, position, degree, organization etc. All participators in the Net are admitted as "Personal" authority. It must be based on "Consensus" and is admitted by "Honor".

2.Voluntary - Motivation

Anyone don't force others and isn't forced by others. He/She acts by self-control based on valuntary motivation. The "Voluntary" means a netizen can do things that are important. The meaning of "self-control" is as following item three.

In the industial society, an private person was treated as like one of mechanical elements. But, an indivisual spontaneously decide to join them by his role in the society and organization. isn't enforced, and can do his favors in cyber world.

3.Self-control - Acticity
