Do we need to be governed?

When trying to introduce this site to others, I surfed various websites, such as those advocating socialism, anarchy, the zeitgeist movement and so on. During this process I got into an interesting discussion with the Socialist Party of Great Britain ( http://www.worldsocialism.org/spgb/forum/genera...

Is direct democracy good or bad?

Now that I have set up this new system and started spreading the news, I have come across a few articles citing arguments against "direct democracy".

To that we can add the thousands of its military bases around the world and constant meddling in regime change. The US spends more than half its budget on the military, more th...

Defragment media

In 1987, Ronald Reagan repealed an act which stated that a news company must speak the truth if it wants to act as a news agency.

Citizen's United is a recent ruling by the Supreme Court whereby companies can be considered like people and are therefore entitled to express their opinion. This includes unlim...

campfires and beer

Vancouver lacks an area, besides perhaps one of the remote beaches in Stanley Park or Reck Beach, where people can gather and play music together around a campfire. Kits beach is pretty central and I think something could be organised without having to "bother the neighbours". And not being able to ...

Legalise marijuana!

B.C. bud is world famous. Why should Ottawa, some 4,000km away, dictate what we can put into our own bodies? It's just a lovely plant!

In need of inspiration?

Some might instinctively say that the system is immovable and that we little people don't stand a chance against the big boys. Or that your little contribution of suggestions or voting on this site will not make any substantial difference. First of all, if enough of us stand together and demand chan...
