Alright then, it’s FUN to throw pie at the faces we don’t like in the arena of Politics. We’re told ”people have been doing it” for a long time. If we show some seriousness about the issues it balances -off and leaves us not feeling too frivolous. Well I’d like to trade a bit of the frivolous action for more of the serious stuff. And that’s unlike Homer Simpson telling you he wants to see less donuts and more course cereal. So I’ve been working on something I’ve long envisioned—which in today’s climate of bumkinesque—I personally think we need desperately.
Submitted then for your inspection is YOU THINK GOV. What is it? The somewhat crude graphic I’ve included shows a mock-up of a front page for a web application placed on an actual website.
The work deals with finding a way for people to act in the best spirit of Self-Governance. It also sets the stage for providing a clean filing system for “the voice of the people” to be gathered and a simplified method of organizing references and other data. The allusions to a clean, like-it-or-not-here-it-is system of measuring public support is fairly obvious.
The references to “printed-up money” and its cost over time are designed to get people to think about “creating money out of thin air” to pay for all of the facets of “National Defense”—which only a fool would believe is limited to guns and armies—but which extends to include all of the issues “the group” must raise before “the individual”. So how much money does it take? Should Social Security payments start to be decreased after somebody has made their first ten million? Shouldn’t I be able to get early SS payments at 10 times their present value since I’ve saved populations now and in the future untold amounts of money with this introduction of a new-fangled system of self-government? Somewhere in the midst of all of this are sliding scales that must be set according to circumstances---that’s what rational self-government is all about in this modern era.
I’ve put up about half of the pages that will complete this and will do an update here when it is finished.
