So much common sense from you. But, re the almost total corruption of government, could this be the ONLY practical solution?
1. Elect Politicians directly, at random, from the general, law abiding population for a fixed term with no possibility of re-election
2. Pay them well, with jobs/careers guaranteed and severe prison time for any corrupt activity
Of course, lots of other issues, all surmountable – but these principles are sacrosanct.
Could it be any worse than the current appalling corrupt situation?
PS I understand this system was tried in ancient Greece and Italy around WW1. We might be better at the logistics now?
A single government that is still not answerable to the people will not cut it. This is precisely the design of the European Project to eliminate any democratic process because they assume the people are too stupid to understand their vision. Those who dictate the trend of Europe known as the Troika, rule without any accountability to the people. There is no democratic process that any of them have to face. This is the European Project – a single government free of any democratic check and balance all justified to prevent war.
