Get where I'm going?
We have to take back the industrial age; however, with a sence of environmental responsibility. Rebuild yesterday with technologies of today.
You have GOT to be kidding me. Do you really think we could agree on that long enough to do anything? This is optimistic at the very best, and realistically would never actually be able to happen. The reason we have so many checks and balances in government, the reason the people are not the direct representatives of themselves, as it was with early greece, is both because our population is too large, and we're pulling in too many ways at once because of it. There's no way you're going to get enough people to go along with your plan and cooperate with you to make it work.
You need the government, housing our elected representatives, which are smaller in number, and pull in fewer ways, to achieve anything.
