The problem with talking problems out.

2 years, 11 months ago

Consider a problem and two people disagree. A logical and safer solution would be to have a formal or a safe argument. now the only way for a problem with two solutions to work out is if they both go hand in hand but there wouldn’t be an argument if that happened but another solution would be to compromise which would mean that elements of both solutions have to be removed in order to work but the problem with that is that it won’t satisfy anyone for long and eventually the argument will arise again. Now another solution is something we commonly call “Democracy” the most amount of people on one side of an argument will ALWAYS win. Even with logical evidence, if the most amount of people follow a side of an argument that you know is wrong then you still lose. This leads into the next stage. If both sides are still on an argument and have a fair amount of supporters, violence may ensue to make someone submit to one’s ideas. This is where war becomes a possibility. And we all know that war is bad but in some cases it is inevitable because there are enough people to fight it.

Thoughts?

hence why republicans don’t like to support education.

You have education, and the more logical side of things becomes clearer to a greater population.

@Rehum P, Peaceful demonstrations and strikes are two ways I can think of. It did influence us getting out of Vietnam (altho wasn’t always peaceful). I also think that when a democracy becomes a plutocracy, where having the most money to sway opinion and influence voters, buying votes, practically, then there is a real problem. Laws need to be changed in which 1) corporations are not considered people, 2) news media that out and out LIE should be fined, and 3) there should be more direct voting. For example, most people in the U.S. believe the 1% should pay higher taxes; however, politicians are indebted to corporations and rich people, so they will not accept this.

And, 3) there should be more direct voting on issues, such as when a majority of people think the 1% should pay more taxes but politicians will not vote this in because their souls are owned by the rich.

A republican style government with democratically elected representatives is probably the best possible system. Democracy in itself is shit because the general population is not fit to rule. But generally no one is fit to rule when influences detract away from what is best for the population. Corporate influence on government seems to be the problem but the real problem is that every human wants something that they are willing to make certain sacrifices of principles and duty to attain. It is either a matter of just giving the politicians all they want or permanantly eliminating what they want, perhaps a bit of both.
