Re: Scotlands Last Chance
You present a beautiful picture of a future, but offer little in the way of a roadmap to get there.
We should have Thorium fission plants, and be developing fusion instead of burning coal and gas.
We should be exploring space and mining the asteroid belt.
We should be governing by ability and vision rather than personality and greed.
Getting to these lofty goals should not include chopping the world's population into smaller and more idealistic chunks, because if you do, you'll end up just one idealistic chunk in charge of nothing, amongst thousands who care little for your vision - exactly where you are now.
When writing code, no matter how good the procedure you call is, the whole program is still crap if the main body is corrupt. Fix the recursive lobby/tax/elect/media loop in the core, you can worry about everything else later.
