High time myths like democracy, limited resources, and the planet were buried. The purpose of a government is to provide external security, internal order including the protection of property, and a sound currency. None of that requires popularity, let alone elections.
Elections are part of providing security FROM THE GOVERNMENT that's all they are. NOW they make government MORE dangerous, not less. Not the economists' fault; blame the voters instead. They have forgotten why they are allowed to vote in the first place. It's not so they can gain out of it
The sun and the solar system have as compared to Earth unlimited resources of energy and of material, including the ability to create environments supporting biology. All it takes is property rights, profit, and will. It is happening. Then there are the multipliers of inter-connection, communication, education, and technology both physical and organizational. The surface here has only been scratched.
As to the ideology, the general good of the human population and the safety and freedom of the individuals are the purposes of the planet. If the polar bears or the whales are in the way, too bad for them. Likewise for Islam.
