again thanks to everyone,
i would like to make sure everyone knows. i dont claim to have invented this, and to the poster who added the links of other places using direct
systems, thanks you, i will go through those in detail.
my goal is not to roll this out tomorrow, but to discuss these ideas.
no system is perfect, especially one that people are involved in. this is the 21st century, and for the first time in known history we have access to
a massive percentage of the people on the planet. surely amongst all of us, world wide, we can come up with ways to design a new system.
im not suggesting we implement any existing direct democracy, im suggesting we all get together, even those who disagree (especially those who
disagree) we can find holes, and then, using our brains, design ways to over come them.
those of you who disagree are presenting some valid reasons in your minds why this wont work. and thats awesome, but. i ask again, think
hypothetically about the situation.
if you can see the hole, can you also see anyway you can plug it.
I think poeple prefer to be against something rather then for something. Its easier and more of a quick shot for the ego or something. I´ve been
flaunting direct democracy localy - globaly for years and it would be sad if it wasn´t so pathetic when you listen to poeples arguments as to why it
will not work and why they are opposed to it even if it could work.
im seeing that in the internet, but that isnt happening face to face. people are trained in schools and by the system to believe its the only system
that can work, even if it has flaws. even i find myself thinking "that cant work" but then i keep thinking and i usually realise if i let go of
something from the old system, and think of a new way to do it, it can work. and its only the old system holding me back
it is hard for people to let go. what they dont realise is, they dont have to let go ... no one is forming jackboot squads to implement this.
its just a conversation about how it could be done.
then, if a policy is formed, we still have to have members run in regular elections, to get voted into the old system with a view to gaining a
mandate to change. nothing like this could start from an october revolution.
whats your idea. not just politics, but things that keep us trapped to the system? if you could change one thing about our westernised world, what
would it be, how would u make it work?
free education for all? the abolition of mass media conglomerates? the abolition of jersey shore?
seriously though, i would love to hear what else you could see redesigned for a 21st century world. what else would we need to change to give power
back to all of us,
and take it from those who leech form us.
