The Blueprint: A Manifesto for a New Age in Society
We need a group who will run for offices, will expect only the effort of votes and support, will use the science of psychology to get their messages across and will use the science of governing to lead and make choices for the public over the wants of the private. We need a group who will play the long game, not taking into account just the next election cycle; who will stand for the truly American principles of inclusion, prosperity, pragmatic sense, and a basis in reality rather than hallucinations and beliefs.
If the conservatives wish to make other stabs at eliminating economic and social democracy, we should get organized into decentralized, organized bands and make ready to fight if necessary to get our governments to work for the American people. I am not going to be willing to subsidize someone elses’ second luxury yacht if it comes at the expense of our schools, health, environment, technology, and overall prosperity. We should not be robbed of the wealth that we produce through our labor, nor should we be denied the right to live as human beings and pursue happiness in according to our needs, tastes, and desires within the bounds of safety, sensibility, and others’ happiness. I am sick of being told that my work isn’t valuable to an organization. I am sick of someone far away telling me how I can non-destructively live my personal life. And I can’t stand the amount of willful ignorance and logical contortions that the conservative opposition comes up with to continue to justify their poorly chosen stances and priorities.
It is time to govern with science and through facts and evidence as to how things are rather than how we think things are or want them to be. I am done being nice to the conservatives and the ideologues.
