er.. no i am saying everybody should have a say, or be in agreement before any changes are made. everybody decides whats best, with NO rulers.
ie: not one man who decides everything, but everybody. the people are in charge not a few. but it would have to be localized to match the needs of that local area one rule does not fit all area's or is against the needs of certain area's.
And that is what we have today, localized representatives of areas, or states. And you can see how that went, and is going on today. No matter what you do people will be people, and business is business. So do whatever, it does not matter. No matter how you restructure it, eventually it will come to the same place.

I dont condone it but do recognize that their goal for a utopian society wont happen with criminal gangs and people on welfare, etc. If one of the goals is population reduction (google Georgia Guidestones) then why would they eliminate productive people and leave the parasites? Hitler killed people based mostly on religion and ethnicity (majority) as well as those who were crippled and mentally ill (minority)
no we do not, they do not represent the people, they represent their own greeds and needs,
regardless i was answering how we prevent bad people from being in charge, as somebody asked earlier, not coming up with the perfect method of 'running' things.
the fact is when ever somebody has a position of power sooner or later you are going to get somebody who will abuse it. so maybe you have a better idea than me on how you prevent that?

Of course the elite are attempting to do what's best for civilization. That's a given in my mind.
The Operative: It's not my place to ask. I believe in something greater than myself. A better world. A world without sin.
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: So me and mine gotta lay down and die... so you can live in your better world?
The Operative: I'm not going to live there. There's no place for me there... any more than there is for you. Malcolm... I'm a monster. What I do is evil. I have no illusions about it, but it must be done.
