A Question For Frome


The Round Table

Can we have a Round Table for Democracy?

The display, when I enter the site, would be something like this:

                          /               \
                         /                 \
                        /                   \
   Sir William Rickards/                     \
                      /                       \Sir Jameson Quinn (3
                     /                         \

Thinking About Being Overwhelmed

Good Morning, Augustin

I'm flabbergasted.

I spent an hour before breakfast on Minguo, but sometimes on Linux. When I quit for breakfast, I was exhausted. I'd followed uncounted lines of thought, read "Hierarchy of contribution in Open Source" in its entirety, and found myself helplessly and completely lost.

Can this be helped?

I'm not sure.

The power in the site is overwhelming, not in a negative sense, but in the sense that there is so much more power than I ever thought possible - and clean power. Each action produces a crisp response, but there are just so many of them.

Thoughts on Democracy

If we are to have a voice in our government, we must have a way to influence the choice of issues the government will address and the choice of the individuals we think best able to resolve them.

Serving The Common Interest

To the extent we believe democracy should fit Lincoln's ideal of "Government of the people, by the people, and for the people", we must not ignore the 'by the people' clause. What has evolved in the United States is not government "by the people", it is a pseudo-democracy governed by the parasitical vested interests that control our nation's political parties.
