Decent systems under the rule of law

Human beings negotiate between inner values and external values. Like the law, also system engineering creates a relation between systems and human beings. System engineers also function in communities and therefore there will be shared values reflected in the communal work that is executed.

They will be capable of formulating their values as well and people will also have an understanding of these. Systems can function in any place, any time. Human presence can also be bigger elsewhere then where it is here and now.

Autonomous systems are welcome in the community of people provided they behave decently. Decent systems function under the rule of law in which a person does not have to accept any system without one’s own consent, unless it is placed above this person due to the rule of law.
