The challenge  to all of us young and old is to look at the systemic patterns that have happened  from the 1890's through to today in our world. Look at the consistent wars, interventions, invasions, the military expenditure, the military industrial complex, the paranoia, the crisis of over production and under ability to purchase - get to the root of what is wrong with our system. Why is it terminally ill? We must root out those deeper causes. We have two systems to compare capitalism and scientific socialism. Social democracy leaves us with the same capitalist system Scientific socialism provides a completely new one. While discussing and examining history we need to make a comparison based on our findings.

You can NOT reform the system it must change to a new one. With reform you are left with the same system of booms and busts, rich and poor, The rich getting richer as the poor get poorer. What system you want needs to be discussed widely and once decided by consensus plans need to be in place of how to achieve the goal. It should be a system that makes people the owning class not the rich. A new system that puts people first.

We saw an interview on television RT QUESTION MORE of Peter Kuznick historian and Oliver Stone Academy award winner. Oliver Stone to RT: "US has become an Orwellian state." In the discussion Kuznick responded to RT question, "Do you think these superficialities in the conventional wisdom that we hear are perpetrated to keep us in a perpetual state of war?", as follows - "I don't know if it is quite so deliberate, but that seems to be the effect - dumbing down the population to the point where they cannot think critically and then you can pull anything over their eyes. They have a five- minute attention span and a five-minute memory of what happened in the past. We are saying learn your history, study it and think about what the alternatives are, think in utopian ways how different the world could be, how better it would be if we start to organize it rationally in the interest of people, not in the interest of profit, not in the interest of Wall Street, not in the interest of military, in the interest of our common humanity the six billion of us who occupy this planet."

As the author of this blog John would like to say that while he agrees we need to add dialogue - talk to your friends neighbours and school or university friends. It is dialogue that will help us all to come to a correct decision of what is to be done.

Canada has approved two major takeovers of energy firms by Chinese and malaysian state-owned bidders. "Harper said  both bids represent a 'net profit' to the country (Reuters)

The natural resources of any country a said to be the heritage of all its peoples. As such they are in need now of government expropriation to regain that status. That requires a revolutionary change of our present system. We have enough parties to do the job but all of them are committed to keep the capitalist system or at best to reform it. After you have done that you have the same system. The present one is terminally ill and it is time for a new one.

Start examining that and talk about it. We do need a political movement designed to focus on people before profits. A movement with a 'put people fist program' arrived at by consensus of the majority.

for the 2013 BC election

Whereas: The present liberal government continues with transit changes made by ex-Premier Campbell.
And whereas: The new appointed Translink Board seems unable or unwilling to carry out their mandate.
And whereas the present government fails to make business pay a fair share of tax burden based on income

Therefore: we the undersigned pledge that we will only vote for candidates in the upcoming 2013 BC Elections who declare publicly they will support and/or introduce the following three points in the BC Legislature.

  • Restoration of Translink Board made up mainly of the former Mayors of the South Coast BC.
  • Remove 'contracted service' from such services and make them corporations like most other companies in Translink-Coast Mountain Bus Company.
  • Abandon the wrong economic policy of "trickle down theory" And introduce a fair tax structure for all including business based on income and a progressive taxation.

Print Name                                            Write Name                                          City Postal Code 

This pledge is made based on the 'honour system'. It is your honour.
Only you and your conscience will be aware that if none of the above points are introduced by whichever party forms the government you are to blame. 
The third point is vital to resolve the Canadian economic crisis. Profit records show that it is a lie that their business will go under if taxes are increased. In 1940 an excess profits tax was introduced by the Government of Canada. It said you can make 100% profit, after that the government will take it all. To our knowledge no business failed after all a profit of 100% surely is enough!

Do you have a conscience?
