Hopefully people will understand by now that we need an actual legal working mechanism that makes public servants (especially elected representatives) accurately follow the will of the people.
I feel very concerned that both main parties are automatically subscribing us to agendas of major powers and that these major powers are just fronts for power hungry corporations. I am communicating with both these webbies to see how we can co-operate;
I am not opposed to big per se. There are a significant number of wealthy people who are effective philanthropists.
So this site is about conscientious citizens voting on or initiating Legally Binding Referendums. Referendums are where an issue is decided by public voting, rather than by political party voting, or vague general political party policy, and the government is legally bound to implement Legally Binding Referenda, (assuming it is not demonstrable lunacy.)
To achieve wise and conscientious voting we need balanced and quality information.
The ultimate goal of this site is to work towards one officially recognised website where conscientious Kiwis, conscious of honouring our founding documents; the 1835 Declaration of Independence and Treaty of Waitangi, can then cast a legally binding vote on political issues that affect Aotearoa/New Zealand.
We have had political parties and ‘democratic media’ for centuries but these issues prove why we must have issue by issue voting that will allow every conscious citizen to become democratically enabled:
Our toxic rubbish is destroying the environment
And our toxic corporate food is destroying our youth.
My case here is that if a good case is made against harmful human practices with clear solutions to them, then the public will vote in support of changes.
If we really try and visualize how the environment can be repaired and how everybody can at least get basic human needs met, I feel it is an inescapable conclusion that political solutions must come from collective wisdom rather than political parties.
If this is true, then we really need to be joining together and thinking: “How do we make political decisions that are really fair and democratic?
Direct Democracy can allow us to focus on the issues as opposed to wasting all our energy loathing the Left Wingers or Right Wingers.
Quite often half of a whole society can get firmly behind a misguided cause simply because it is anti Left or Right Wing.
Or the whole country can be fooled into backing simplistic populist solutions such as either Debate A or Debate B when neither Debate addresses the true cause and details of a problem with Debate M being the only credible solution.
So can politics be simplified through a culture of transparent research and language and where the security of our decision making is with the people rather than some long compromised political party which always has its baggage, just like you and I do?
I think most people KNOW the political system should be transparent, inclusive, educational and enlightening.
Ever so slowly I’ll be seeking interviews about how the Treaty of Waitangi can be a win win situation for the everyday people and the page link will be here: http://thepeopleslaw.co.nz/treatyofwaitangi
Another thing that I would like to achieve here is have a page of ‘Model Social Systems’ that people can rate or comment on, regardless of whether those systems currently exist in this country, previously existed in this country or exist in some other country.
This will be the link to that page: http://thepeopleslaw.co.nz/modelsocialsystems
