The Occupy and Arab Spring movements reflect a worldwide frustration with how 1% of the population
controls everything for their own benefit at the expense of the 99%. Countless millions of us are finally
ready to take action, but we first need to agree on which policies to support. The info on this site suggests how
we might bring reason, fairness, freedom and opportunity to all the people of the Earth.|
A single, worldwide government would end wars between nations and the threat of nuclear war.
The problem isn't big government, it is corruption and inefficiency in government. An Informed (direct) Democracy
would provide a means of controlling these problems, without the problem of mob rule, by placing immediate
power in the hands of the people.
10% of the U.S. population owns almost 90% of the wealth. If they could get by with only 80% it would
DOUBLE the standard of living for 90% of the population. An "Exchange Tax" at the same rate for everyone, with
no loopholes and no other taxes, could make this happen.
Government competition with private enterprise in areas of basic necessity would reduce prices and
provide guaranteed employment for everyone. This would end unemployment, welfare and homelessness, while
everyone would still be free to make as much money as they want.
Huge reductions in military spending could finance projects that benefit the people directly. We could
have free health care and free education -- and all digital media, including music, movies and software, would
be available free, which would solve the digital pirating problem.
The construction of one-building cities housing 100,000 people or more could cut the cost of living in half
for those fortunate enough to live there.
Worldwide enforcement of environmental regulations would prevent pollution and eventually stop the
climate change problem, deforestation and depletion of fish stocks.
Replacing the Federal Reserve and the practice of fractional lending with a government bank would end
inflation, stabilize the economy and provide low interest small business loans to the masses.
Legalizing freedom of choice in the pursuit of happiness (the freedom to do anything which doesn't harm
others) would cut crime and prison populations in half.
And there is much more that can be done.
