Why is it so hard for people to voice that globalization has been/is a failure.
Ditto, we are ruled by Corpocracy/oligarchy.
I'm just amazed by it. Some make excuses that since they can't do anything about it why bother, etc.
IMO, this government is failing and failure is desirable when you are racing toward the edge of a cliff.
Before we can discern solutions we must know the cause, the root cause of such failure.
Let's take a moment to understand the distinction between Democracy versus Republic.
IMO, we have too much Democracy. The Republic leans toward protecting the individual while Democracy, as a form of government, leans toward giving voice to the majority.
Couple the fact that we have too much Democracy with the fact that the elite, through their corporations, have used Democracy to usurp our form of Direct Democracy. They have been able to do this through Corporate Personhood law coupled with Money Is Free Speech law and of late, Citizens United vs FEC court rulings.
The result is a vocal (wealthy) Minority Group receiving most of the attention of elected representatives. That is why globalization and our government is failing.
Therefore, it seems logical that the solution to restore our Republic, national sovereignty, and the democratic principles we once lived by, is to abolish Corporate Personhood law and implement REAL campaign finance reform. CFR would mandate that all donations be managed through a private/public arrangement from the individual donor to a non-partisan government agency such as the IRS or FEC or a similar entity of the state.
Accomplishing those two reforms will relieve government of the money influence and renew the correct relationship between the people and their representatives.
But, and a big But, those reforms will never see the light of day through the Corpocracy. It will take a new 3rd party designed for the 21st century with a different political attitude to accomplish this.
Such laudable reform is the primary mission of the Republic Sentry Party, guardian of the REPUBLIC. Check it out, climb aboard.
Otherwise, we have the Corpocracy we deserve.
