Political Visions.

Information

Political Visions.

Welcome to Political Visions.
The aim of this group is to learn about other peoples political visions and discuss those visions. How they envision the structure of the political system to be. The roles of the participants within the system. It could be a broad outline view or just an element or sub element of the political system. It is about political ideas whether they be socialistic, conservative, liberal, big government, little government, the role of the people within the political system, the role of government at all levels of your country. What you think should be in a constitution and a charter of rights and freedoms within a society. The obligations that those freedoms and rights impose on you as an individual.
Post your vision as a discussion to make it easier to discuss and understand your ideas for a political system.

Davy;

  Good call forming this group. I regret not having jumped in sooner. Thanks for the invite.

  For what it's worth, I'll offer a little context to help lend some perspective on my own personal political point of view, which may be even more fascinating to those of you that don't liver within the increasing unfriendly confines of this once-great nation known as the U.S. of A.

  The place: Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A., Earth

  The time: many years ago, so stay with me here.

  The story (and trust me, this IS "the short version"): As a much younger human, I got together with a couple of friends to go downtown and see what was being advertised as a free concert in beautiful Grant Park (Google it).

  When we got there, the park was teeming with not only "hippies" (some of you may remember them?), but also a whole lot of other arguably more "normal" folks as well. The pungent aroma of cannabis sativa (as opposed to today's indica variety) wafted through the air.

  There was a small ad hoc kind of stage way up towards the front of the park, and there were some people there addressing the assembled multitude about the evils of the "police action" in Viet Nam, as well as the generally corrupt condition of the Amerikan (sic) politicians who supported it.

  We were roughly 14 years old, and really didn't have a clue as to what all the "hub-bub" was about - afterall we were there to hear some music, dammit! When the speakers finished making their respective points, a little known rock band from Detroit began to play their first song, which started by the lead singer screaming out at the top of his lungs "Kick out the jams, motherf#ckers!!!"

  This band was the venerable "MC 5" (Google it) and although they weren't who we originally planned on seeing, they definitely got our attention. Sadly, they also got the attention of a metric shitload of Chicago police, dressed in full riot gear, who began to wade into the rather diverse crowd, billy-clubs first.

  Next came the tear gas.

  As the more politically astute among you may have discerned by now, the year was 1968, and we were in the midst of one of the first assaults that accompanied the legendary Democratic National Convention.

  Needless to say, the party broke up, and at that moment, amidst the gagging and choking (on the gas, not the weed) my political consciousness was awakened.

  It never went back to sleep.

  Below are some photos, obviously NOT taken by the fourteen year old me, but they sure do stir up some vivid memories of "demock-racy" (sic) in action.

  Nice to meet'cha.

I read a university study that said that elected representatives listen to rich constituents even if they don't contribute to their campaign because they might contribute in the future. What this does is establish a system that continues to help the wealthy and disenfranchise the middle-class and poor. They are unaccountable to the middle-class and poor. This is why average to poor income people have to pool their efforts through protests, letter writing campaigns and etc to have a voice that heard.

That's because they are unaccountable to the people!

In the U.S. federal politicians tend to represent corporate interests rather than peoples interests. That results in terrible laws and regulations. It seems to be getting worse.

Comment was by Davy on December 26, 2012 at 3:51pm

I just been not thinking and this thought pop in to my mind.

Politicians demand that everyone who is a government official including the people in the services to be accountable for their actions. But they are unwilling to account for their actions when they pass laws or do other things in relation to their contract with the people!

Here's some information about the U.S. political 'debates.'

Moderate Debates and Debate Moderators
Debate process needs more scrutiny, not less

10/3/12

The Commission on Presidential Debates, which wrested control of the debates from the League of Women Voters in 1988, is a nonprofit--financed largely by corporations--that is basically controlled by the two major political parties. The campaigns hash out secret agreements about every aspect of the debates, and, as the group Open Debates has pointed out for years, the campaigns actually get to vet the moderators.

Being praised by "political strategists" could mean you're exceedingly fair--or that you've managed to offend no one in power. The latter is not exactly an admirable trait in a journalist. But it's the kind of thing that makes it likely that the major-party candidates will let you moderate their presidential debate.

FAIR's repeated studies of the NewsHour show that Lehrer's reputation for moderation is based on a tilt toward conservative sources and a willingness to exclude perspectives that might challenge the elite consensus (Media Advisory, 5/13/11). When FAIR studied two months of the NewsHour in 2010 (Extra!11/10), we found four times as many oil industry representatives talking about the BP oil spill as environmental experts; none of the segments on the Afghan War included a peace advocate.

Thankfully, there are some alternatives. Democracy Now! is presenting a debate special that will include real-time responses to the questions from candidates shut out by the debate commission: Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party. There will also be a livestream special presented by OccupyTheDebates.org, offering analysis and commentary that will not be available in the corporate media.

Great group!  My political vision is that we need to keep evolving our concept of government.  I believe we need to strike a balance between opportunities for capitalists, social mobility of the labourer, and social safety nets for those with capital and/or labour challenges.  :D

Thank you Adriana.

I created it because there were no groups that you could specifically address political ideas and thoughts that you have. 

Comment was by Adriana on October 3, 2012 at 8:54am

Great idea for a group, Davy!
