Their are three inter related problems that must be solved. Voting is not enough
1: Over population; it leads to a perpetual state of crisis, each technological solution bails us out of disaster with continued innovation and tightening of corporate control. At some point the clever ends and the market corrects.
Control of Tax Law
2: Tax law; a two fold problem. First the modern trans-national corporation must be controlled, changing our relationship with corporations is fundamental to social, environmental and economic justice.
The second part of the tax problem involves access to credit for the poor and the challenge of wages as a source of income in an age of automation.
3: Our tendency towards fascism articulated clearly by Tommy Douglas when he stated
“Fascism begins the moment a ruling class, fearing the people may use their political democracy to gain economic democracy, begins to destroy political democracy in order to retain its power of exploitation and special privilege.” — Tommy Douglas
Our tendency towards fascism is clearly shown in our defense spending. We engage in wasteful spending when basic needs are not met.
