In comparison to most existing systems of governance, the global governance model proposed here has an inherent effectiveness both for handling global challenges and risks and for mitigating, and sometimes precluding, those challenges and risks even before they arise. By its very nature, it is more effective at every level since it follows natural patterns and principles. Just as a cell is a stable and self-organizing subsystem aggregated into the larger system of an organ, or as an organ is to the body, every tier is a self-organizing system aggregated into the larger system of global governance.Each tier can largely take care of its own needs, especially once the autonomous township/village has been established. That which can be resolved on the local level gets resolved, and if it requires further intervention, only then are higher, more distant tiers engaged. This increases effectiveness by reducing complexity and easing communication.

This self-organizing network allows many decisions to be implemented organically at every tier of the ten-tiered system; others are easily implemented when a decision is made because of the shared goals and values on which the system is based. Older established systems of governance tend to assume that competing individuals and groups have incompatible goals and that they see themselves as separate from each other and from the natural environment, so these older governance systems have a built-in lack of effectiveness for meeting global challenges and risks and for implementing decisions. They are largely unable to see anything instructive in a natural ecosystem that is in balance, carrying out extremely diverse functions organically.

Conversely, the worldview of harmonious coexistence recognizes in such an ecosystem exactly the paradigm for effective global governance. Individuals and states then are no longer assumed to be in isolation and in competition. Instead, they are assumed to have the capacity for synergy and effectiveness of organ systems in a healthy body.

Only by starting with this assumption that such effectiveness is perfectly normal and therefore expected at every level from the individual on up, can a global governance system actually achieve such effectiveness. All tiers of the system are mutually supportive. The basic unit of the entire system, the team or family, lives out this same cooperative synergy on a day-to-day basis. The tension that may arise frequently among individuals or families or townships, and the ongoing resolution of that tension, is itself essential to effectiveness because no individual, family or township can have the depth and breadth of experience, awareness, and wisdom available to the whole. Even so that dialectical progression of tension and resolution is governed by the sense of responsibility of every participant for the effectiveness of governance, of the whole.
