Forum Post: Some Thoughts of Solution

Posted 7 months ago on March 24, 2014, 4:36 a.m. EST by bullfrogma (448)

What is everyone thinking would be the best solutions to the problems of monopoly and lack of democracy that we face? What needs to happen for continued, positive change to really become possible? I've seen a lot of things floating around the forum and am curious if it's possible to consolidate them into some kind of precise understanding.

How can,

truth be more a factor of our evolution?

money be less directly related to power?

education and effort be motivated?

I think all of them might be in on it, especially the president. That secret panel would have to be composed of ninjas with adamantine skeletons and laser shooting eyeballs.

No seriously, aren't most of these guys part of the same Country Club? I think that secret panel is a job for the NSA, but aren't they the ones making sure people can't fight back?

you're right, it isn't fair. I've come to respect the political system a lot more than I thought I ever would. it's those people though, who have the whole thing working for them, and I don't believe we even know who they are. we've been through this though. I like the conspiracy theory, too many instances have the same dishonesty, and i have my own reasons. it doesn't matter though. solution matters.

speaking of conspiracy, shout out to the jerk offs down voting everything i say no matter what.

Sorry I named the post after you, was just hoping to get a mixed bag.

I'll have to check those links when it's not my bed time. That wouldn't surprise me at all, that the people involved are proud. I've met people too many times who are proud of being evil. It's like being too weak to quit smoking cigarettes, and being proud of that. But Neil Young said it great, a greedy man never knows what he's done.

decentralization =/ deregulaltion

"Getting repelicans out is but the first step. "

How many decades has each side been attempting to do this? I mean honestly, how long is the nation going to run at that carrot before they decide to just toss the guy dangling it overboard?

"The achievement of socialism requires the solution of some extremely difficult socio-political problems: how is it possible, in view of the far-reaching centralization of political and economic power, to prevent bureaucracy from becoming all-powerful and overweening? How can the rights of the individual be protected and therewith a democratic counterweight to the power of bureaucracy be assured?"

What could balance public and private so not to create an abusable advantage?

What's wrong with killing innocent people and destroying hundreds of families just to make excessive amounts of money, while at the same time perverting a government to misrepresent an entire nation? You know I don't think anyone should be punished for being human, but that isn't really human, is it. People live out their life in jail for isolated acts of passion, not even this methodical or genocidal. One thing in possible defense is that gang mentality is compulsive, and psychotic behavior is a mental illness. As of now, while everyone is going to movies and sucking on milkshakes, we're the ones letting these people continue to drive. We have to unite, all of us, seriously.

Wow, fairness doctrine sounds pretty cool. Sort of like forcing the media to actually talk about what's going on and be honest about it. No wonder they nuked it. Outrageous.

Would a non fundable, standardized campaign process that gave candidates equal exposure be helpful to get money out of politics? If not, why not?

Here, do yourself a favor:

Not the most in depth, but a good starting place.
