I am neither Left nor Right and was actually leaning towards No Party politics until I started studying Sustainability.
I use to think Green was the answer in that it is non-partisan (there are just as many Big C Conservatives in the National party as Big M Marxists) with one central goal...but that is just a pipe dream when the economy is good and jobs are not on the agenda...
Unbelievalbe that I actually kinda agree with Kapish
Lets face it, there is no true capitalism or democracy or communist or even socialist state.
UN Local Agenda 21 is about localizing economies of scale.
For example; you take a block of a neighbourhood (or a larger geocode area but still manageable). Now within that block you form your own 'governing movement' (funny enough, much like the Occupy movement). Each house becomes a specialist. One may be a solar array due to it's southern roof placement, another may be best for rain catchment, some may have an ideal unused yard for growing vegetables or chicken & eggs. Now the 'Socialism' part, if you can call it that is equal distribution of the self-sustaining neighbourhood. The food can be distributed to local businesses/restaurants, households and churches. Any excess can be put back into capital projects. District heating is quite popular in Europe (in Iceland there Geothermal heat is free) and some neighbourhoods and farms in Germany own their own utility companies. Feed-in Tarif often creates a profit for the community and when not upgrading or self-sustaining projects then the profit can be distributed (much like a dividend in a company like Westjet)
To control all this is a use of democracy in the strictest sense.
One person, one vote. Using this here inter web thingy.
There would be no centralization of funds or government.
Big governments and corporations will always exist but to give power to the people on a house to house level would be the only course we may chart. If a neighbourhood becomes self-sufficient think of how competitive that would become with other places to live and if people choose not to, so be it. That's where we are free to live how and where. Of course, why would you not live in a neighbourhood that has free electrical, hot water, water, eggs, veggies...hell, with Aqua-agriculture you can raise fish in the same tank as you grow veggies that is self-sustaining...
I was recently at UBC's Centre for Interactive Research in Sustainability and they are doing some amazing things there. Not just on Sustainability but on how we interact and govern ourselves (they vote online each day for the ideal temperature of the office they work in). Check it out if you get a chance. http://cirs.ubc.ca/
The whole point of this is for the people not to be dependent on their government for jobs or cheaper oil/utilities or affected by corporations commodity of food & water, etc...
Anyways, I love this shit, it's what I do now for better or worse
There is no such thing as climate change...there is no such thing as climate change...there is such thing as climate change...
