I would argue that your tenets are one hundred percent
obsolete. But I really have to run, my government is collapsing.

A new economic system that I have reversed-engineered from the Declaration of Independence that I call Robin Hood economics. Life, Liberty, and Happiness for ALL Humans!

Capitalism and socialism are surely failing us, and communism is hardly doing any better (at least, how it is currently being implemented, but considering China is going to overtake us economically soon, I think they are going to prove us wrong about communism being a poor system).

But under communism, you have to take one step back (sacrifice liberty). That is where Robin Hood economics comes in. You take one step forward, and then, two more! (You know, one step backwards to take two steps forward is only like taking one step forward, so why not just take one step forward AND THEN two more steps forward?)

I have studied this, and it will surely succeed.

Here's the problem for that - Happiness for ALL humans?

How? How do you guarantee happiness for all humans?

You can't make someone happy, and you can't guarantee happiness for a person even if you gave them every material want in the world. Even if some people had that, they still wouldn't be happy. Look at how many very wealthy people are still miserable. This is why the Founders only guaranteed people the right to pursue happiness because they knew if they tried to guarantee happiness there was no way they could succeed at that even if they could provide every material desire every person wanted.

I would argue that wealthy people are miserable because they know subconsciously that they are greedy, and it is their lust for glory that keeps everyone else miserable and subjugated.

Are you really so anal that I need to say "most" humans instead of "all"? Come on. I thought we all learned that being an english nazi is not cool...

Being more involved with their community. Start demanding a return to the law correctly. Hold elected official accountable. Investigate technology to eliminate voter fraud. Take local elections seriously. Open your mind to new ideas.

No...it's not subconscious all the time, and no, we're not miserable.

I'm certainly not wealthy, but I do well for my own.

The idea is right on top of consciousness! With education, comes great responsibility. What one does with that is questionable.

If you were wealthy and looked around the world, where would your ultimate priorities be? If you just recently became wealthy, you would say I want to help everyone! If you are wealthy because you earned it, you would say, "Let them earn their way!" If you were wealthy because that's how it's been since the dawn of time, then you would likely say, "Provide them the tools to earn wealth and help them when they are in dire need."

Just sayin....
