Macron and other lunatics

Macron is a lunatic. Sunak is a lunatic. Biden is a lunatic. Scholz is a lunatic. They are all lunatics and they act without consultation with or concern for their people.

Doing their best to run the world into nuclear war. Wrecking their nations day by day.

Absolutely. All across the western world. as far afield as Australia.
And why/how can they/do they do this?

Because western people have been trained, indoctrinated, schooled to believe their interaction, input, to government occurs once every few years only. and that’s their chance to ‘fix everything’ magically somehow by casting a vote.

Usually for one Party or the Other. Which then will run things. Leave it to them. Your part done.

The people do not cast this vote for themselves. Not for themselves, their own wishes. Only for this or that Party which may or may not happen to share the same interests: usually not, at least not when it gets down to it.

So that’s it. You speak once every few years. And that’s it. That’s your ‘input’ to govt.

The people all know that’s the way of it. All the politicians know that’s the way of it. All the lobbying big business interests directing the course of the govts actions know that’s the way of it.

Hence the people are totally: but ‘totally’, discounted. Ignored. As trivial, unimportant.

And during that hiatus between ‘magically fix it all’ votes the people do in fact completely ignore the government.

At times of great stress they resort to marching in the streets and riot rather than attempting to use the democratic machinery.

Governing themselves is an idea and practice completely – but utterly and completely – foreign to the mass of the people. The ‘mass’ of them to something like 99.99% at a guess.
And yet they live in nations ostensibly devoted to ‘govt of the people by the people for the people’.

There is a clear need for a radical change.

The people need to be able to register their attitude towards the govt and issues of the day at any time. Any time. 27/7/52.

And they need to know what they are doing as a group instantly.

And they need to be able to do this easily. At the push of a button from a bed, an easy chair, within the car, anywhere, any time.

And today in 2024 technology and infrastructure has finally developed to where for the first time in the history of populous nations the above is now possible.

Given the right apps we would all have our account on the ‘national voters register’ which is what the app or collection of apps would comprise.

And we could push buttons to vote and to change votes. As easily as that.

And see graphically the numbers of us who’ve voted this way or that. i.e. watch what we are all collectively doing. In real time. And know we can believe what we’re seeing.

And vote on any small issues as they come up, too.
All with thumbpress on a smartphone.

That is not here yet.

But mini examples of this kind of thing abound: polls, surveys and govt statistics.

Pollsters scour the social media to take account of how the public seem to be feeling about this or that.
Marketers do the same thing and are forever running ‘market surveys’ on the web.
When it pleases them the govt does it too.

But all these polls and surveys and statistics can be deeply flawed as we saw in the American elections and in fact predominantly are.
It is almost axiomatic that the polls are wrong. Surveys interpolate inaccurately. Stats are interpreted wrongly.

And there are forces out there devoted to sabotaging truth. As we saw in the American elections again.

For on social media no one knows if an account is real or totally false. It may belong to a robot, i.e. no one. A person may have many accounts. And so on.
Just as in the American elections. The dead vote. Non existent people vote. Individuals vote many times, etc.

But honest Open Source apps built for the purpose: open source so that their integrity can be constantly monitored by the programmer community, would be at least as secure as your bank account apps.
And would be tied to real persons. And one account per person. Etc.

Such simple apps would fix everything, all the problems of our archaic voting systems today.

So we could have an app or a number of apps that together represent the ‘voting’ accounts of the whole population. i.e. the whole register of voters.

And say they all vote for a certain measure or action. What then?

It could be protested that there are no ‘teeth’ in this are there?

That the govt and vested interests don’t have to take any account of this clear desire/decision of the people any more than they take account of the polls, surveys and stats that they have had to hand prior to this.

Well no. They don’t. After all it is not their app, is it? Not their apps. They are Open Source, the code. The apps belong to the people not to the govt. It is not an official govt app with legislation demanding they ‘obey’ it.

So they do not have to take any notice at all of the ‘output’ from these ‘voting apps’.

But that is not really how it would work in the real world is it? On closer inspection we see there are ‘teeth’.

For this ‘survey’ is TRUE. It is quite definitely true, honest, real. Not fake. Not a beat up. Not a con. Not a publicity stunt. Not another erroneous poll.

We all know it is true. All the hundreds of thousands of highly skilled and intelligent programmers throughout the world can check the code and pronounce on the accuracy of it.

No. This represents one true person: one vote and every vote was made deliberately and with forethought.

This represents truth.

And what does that mean? It means that the elected reps who until now have happily disregarded their constituents once elected and obeyed only the dictates of the Party – lest the Party withdraws support for them and they lose their seats – now see the true honest writing on the wall.

If they do not do these wishes of the people they will lose their seats, Party or no Party.

We still have the totally inefficient and anachronistic ‘once every few years’ voting mechanism but now it has become a mere formality. Long before we ever get to that date the thoughts, moods, opinions, intentions of the voting public are clear to see.

Seeing the ‘writing on the wall’ individual reps would for the first time begin to represent their constituents on the floor of the house wherever that might be in that nation.

They would begin to argue with their Party because they see appeasing the Party will not help when the people are clearly against them.

We have the ability to run the nations ourselves, finally, now. With the help of computer, internet, smartphone.
And we need to do it.
