How we can start to fix our broken democracy

-

THOUSANDS around the country are waking up to the fact that our democracy is broken and we need to do something radical to repair it. We, the people, urgently need to take back control of our democracy. Trust has gone.

People are realising that the contract between them and their elected representatives is getting weaker by the day. Their faith in this broken system is melting away as one narrative after another is exposed as the agenda of vested interests and powerful elites towards a CCP-style totalitarianism is made manifest.

Perhaps the time has come for those who recognise the shortcomings of our democratic system to come together and create an alternative or at least a reformed version. The solution is most definitely not to have another general election which only replaces one useless, degenerate mob with another useless, degenerate mob.

Unfortunately, most people in this country are hypnotised into thinking that this repetitive system of democracy that we have is the only system that works even if they recognise its imperfections. History has taught us (maybe not the younger generation unfortunately) that any alternative system of government would be worse.

But let’s think outside the box for a moment and see if there is a way to reform our current rotten system so that it better reflects the wishes of the people and at the same time monitors and restrains the excesses of those privileged to represent us. I know many will say checks and balances needed to keep our democracy safe are already in place. But no one can have failed to observe that over the last two and half years, the state has awarded itself extraordinary powers that run counter to the spirit of our unwritten constitution based on common law and the principles of individual sovereignty and liberty. Once the state has taken these powers, it is very reluctant to give them up.

There is very little opportunity for the public to contribute to our current system and even less opportunity to change things within a parliamentary term of office if they see that politicians are not performing their duties with due diligence.

So what can the people do to ensure that the governments we elect behave honourably?

First, we need to write a people’s charter – a 21st century Magna Carta that defines and protects the individual rights and sovereignty that our forebears fought for and gave their lives for. We innocently assumed these were already enshrined by our government and the various international organisations that were established to protect the interests of the people but, as we are now discovering, are now being erased by an insidious elitist agenda.

Every country, every institution, is under threat from the technocratic, transhumanist ideology that has ‘mission crept’ its way into every structure and institution of our society courtesy of the WEF, the Trilateral Commission, the banking cartels, the World Bank, WHO, Big Tech, Big Pharma, billionaire elites and the various UN backed organisations.

Second, we need to identify the areas of society that need to be reformed to eradicate these insidious ideologies.

Third, we, the people, need to write a manifesto of the people, for the people, and by the people. Once the manifesto is agreed we need to hold an election where we elect the party or representatives who can best present their case for implementing it. This would be true democracy, or at least a better version of it than at present.

In addition, there needs to be an assembly or people’s council that has oversight of the government. The assembly’s purpose would be to review the government’s performance and standards. It would hold regular sessions at which every member of the public may make their contribution.

Is this workable? Maybe. Are there weaknesses in this proposal? Probably. But in my opinion there is very little opportunity for the public to contribute to our current system and even less opportunity to change things within a parliamentary term of office if they see that politicians are not performing their duties with due diligence.

We need to start the conversation and see if it sparks a revolution in our democratic system.
