Nope, only a good idea on paper.
@NbladeMasterN, mostly because the power to maintain equality winds up in a select few hands, and those hands are prone to being greased
@NbladeMasterN, The world it paints is one I’d like to live in... the problem is that current humans are not culturally (or maybe even biologically in as much as bio effects our drives and minds) ready to enact it without F-ing it up. Maybe some day... I hope we hold onto that paper. It’s a good paper. Just don’t do it... not now, probably not for a few thousand years. But keep the paper. I like to think of that world sometimes.
@ Tobias Widower, all systems of government end up putting all the power in just a few hands
@ Tobias Widower, so it's not the leaders faults for making a corrupt system. It's those people over there that try to bribe them that's the problem. What are they going to bribe them with they have all the power, money, guns, and food.
@Landrover, agreed... but like pandemics or economic recessions, we know there will be another... but we can try to hold it off for a while. By remembering that the USA did not exist to be a single entity under a single person/ group. We live with a series of smaller, more controllable governments. It’s harder to buy all of those. By remaining active and keeping the power there, we can postpone any president or any Congress from having the power where there corruption would matter that much. We’ve been getting so fixated on the “highest authority” we forget that the real business shouldn’t be happening at that level. Our local and state governments should be doing most of the stuff. A federal government should be the...”So... murder is bad right? No arguments? Nice!” And also “hey you! You can’t pick on them. Only I can pick on them.” And that’s about it. Rant over.... sorry for screaming into the void that is internet chats.
@Canis Arktos, Amen!
@NbladeMasterN, is it really tho? Lets abolish the government and share everything what could go wrong?
@CocoasBro, well now that's an oversimplification of it.
@NbladeMasterN, not really. When you get down to it thats what they want.
@NbladeMasterN, an over simplification doesnt mean untrue, to be fair.
@Noctobo, that's fair I guess.
@NbladeMasterN, not even on paper though.
@Landrover, **begins handing out pamphlets for the libertarian party**
Damn, another dictatorship... maybe if we try it just once more time...
Not until we’re in a post-scarcity society.
@Hotchkiz, literally won’t ever happen.
How dare you
