A politico-religious meme created by Vos5 Jansen, an uploaded and enhanced clone of Vosia Jansen XI, Matriarch of Helen IV. Jansenism is characterized by a devotion to an anarcho-communist lifestyle, direct democracy, consensus rule, and large emotionally and physically unrestrained public festivals. Vos5 Jansen was persecuted for its beliefs by Matriarch Vosia Jansen and only survived because one of its disciples smuggled it out of the system on a visiting relativist ship. Today, Jansenism is most commonly found on struggling new colonies and in various fringe sub-cultures.
