The Struggle for Democracy – Part II


Many friends, colleagues and acquaintances have asked in that rhetorical manner ‘how do we fix the system?’  The brutal answer is that we don’t.  The current oligarchic system of government works just fine – for those in power.  One cannot fix what is not broken.  However, this is not the best system of government, nor is it a democracy (see last post). If the current system of government and bureaucracy do not work, what is a better state of affairs?  Granted we cannot go from A-Z without going through the alphabet, unless we want to go backwards.  That is an option, although common sense tells me it is not the wisest of directions.  We must take this step by step, a process that entails hard work, dedication, and determination for a better life for all concerned and not only the people in power.

ELIMINATE THE POLITICIANS (I don’t necessarily mean kill)
No current or retired politicians can be trusted to act in the interests of a democracy.  In my opinion – I write again, IN MY OPINION – all politicians are all lying, cheating, self-interested thieves and cut-throats.  This doesn’t make it true; it is what I believe the truth to be.  Admittedly, I’ve met many politicians in my life, and those experience has shaped my opinion.  Once elected, a politician’s only interest is in shaping their careers and re-election.  That is their only interest.  Granted, when these people are not play-acting as politicians, they are probably decent enough and want a happy life, like everyone else.

SO, GET RID OF THE POLITICIANS.  Convict them of Treason without trial and set about their immediate dismissal from power and from Canada.  Accomplished in one in one of three ways:

  1. Capital Punishment: Hang the lot of them. (It is a capital offence), that is bad karma, and not an avenue I wish to explore.  Granted in every political reform in the past, this was always used.
  2. Banishment:  Exile every politician, including their spouses and descendants to Baffin Island, along with every Deputy Minister, every Assistant Deputy Minister, and Executive Director and Judge.  Give them enough raw supplies to last them two years – and warn them they will never be allowed to leave, on pain of life.  Establish military bases and ensure their exile.
  3. Exile From Canada:  Send them to whatever countries will accept them.  Never allowing them to ever walk on her soil again.

In every case, everything they own is seized by the new State and used to help create a true democracy.  Once these people are gone we can set about getting down to work and creating the world’s first democracy.

Join me in my next post as we look at drafting a New Constitution.
