Forum Post: Let's have a nameless system

I don't mean to alarm anyone but I think we can all agree that underneath it all, we are only human - descendants of apes, and it is a marvel that we've gotten as far as we have by keeping up this facade among the masses and convincing them that they are something else. The elite and some CEO's are the only ones who act purely with their egos, and I assure you that if they all suddenly vanished tomorrow, we wouldn't feel any more social or economic pressure coming from the top, down - this constant self-checking of following the law and maintaining an orderly system. Knowing this, instead of having these institutionalized and named systems, let us use democracy, the one power we the people have over intellectuals who impose a system on us to erase these words from existence and replace it with demands that we need from the people who own things and functions, rights, and facts-of-the-way-things-work-around-here, lest we decide to tell them to go fuck themselves and revolt. Things we need out of the land we live in (and list your own):

•Property that we own. "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered" -Thomas Jefferson

•That government does not deceive the people into war and provides factual and non-fraudulent evidence for a case for war UNDER PENALTY OF DEATH (i know you all shy away from a death penalty but you are now all suffering the consequences of tyrants who've acted on their self interests because they do not fear any significant retaliation from the people)

•I would say an abolishment of the private institution that prints our money and controls bank interest rates here but it was a ratings agency, AIG that acted fraudulently which created the sub-prime mortgage bubble that led to the 2008 crash. I'm not sure how to fix institutions meant to fix and regulate other institutions that are supposed to be more vulnerable to corruption.. Your input?

•The constant awareness that we have a right to live in the pursuit of happiness in this land as equally as those with wealth and control over many things. Well? What do you say The elite don't follow the rules of the game anyway and the people don't want to have to constantly concern themselves with them, so the only people who actually live their lives based on these rules are the nerds who came up with them. Let's get real here and stop trying to fool ourselves so we can stop the next American civil war shall we?

If you want to get really technical it's actually the Bureau of Engraving and Printing that physically prints the "Federal Reserve notes", and what good is an institution that's part of the executive branch and controls the very lifeblood of the civilized world, considering the dollar is the reserve currency of the world, when its transactions can't be audited and whose dealings are left to the gut-feeling of its chairman (Alan Greenspan claiming he thought he knew how markets worked and would behave when he dropped interest rates to near 0% after 9/11 against opposition made by former head of CFTC Brooksley Born who predicted such a move would allow predatory lending and create a bubble)?

Also your "demands a stable economy...proper investment" statement is hilarious considering all of this shit we've had to suffer and learn from, institutions we've had to create, rules we had to invent in response to human nature and regulations formed to check any abuses to powerful systems were all made to create a more prosperous and orderly society. Yet here we are, wading in stagnant waters and widespread poverty with a national debt that will take the next generation to pay off and an agenda from the white house to drive us further into debt and economic ruin by trying to create the right conditions to invade the sovereign nation of Iran in the next 20 years. What will make these warmongers cease and desist their relentless war path? Why do they not pay the cost of war out of their own pockets, or better yet out of the pockets of those who profit from it, the defense and construction contractors
