If any Federal Political Party is to make any real significant headway in the upcoming election then radical ideas would have to be presented to the voters. Addressing the short and long term health of all life on this planet must and should be a top priority/issue.
The Green party like the other three popular mainstream parties are but playing out our wrongly evolved capitalistic game that is destroying the planet.
We know what is wrong but none of them dare question our destructive evolved ways.
Included in these wrongs is the “Free Market” which we, and them, the political parties, are not allowed to question. A mere mention of these words would have the media (owned and controlled by the wealthy and influential) shut them out completely.
Our freedom to use and abuse resources (because we have the money) as we please should also be questioned yet again we/they can not!
Any party who comes out and says outright that they will introduce some of the ideas and/or policies below would gain ground in the upcoming election. People do care and would understand that they would be doing this for our children’s children!
1) Tobacco must go! Phase it out within the next 5 or 10 years. Production, imports and sales.
2) Alcohol; as people are too weak to control themselves, it would/should have to be regulated. No one should be allowed to consume more then “X” amount per week or month. If we all have to have an in-bedded chip to control our consumption, then let it be the way.
3) Home/house sizes; How dare we allow people to build 6, 8, 10 thousand square foot domiciles while others are forced to share small or below grade spaces! Bachelor, one, two, three … bedroom homes/house, all should be limited in sizes as per type.
4) Personal vehicle; It must be phased out over the next 10 to 20 years on a Global scale. Why not start the movement here in Canada! As we allow more vehicles we create more bottlenecks. Fix one two or three more appear. It is a losing battle! It is a serious pollution that should be addressed.
5) Online porn and gambling; governments should not be involved in gambling at all. Its effort should be to stop/close every site now accessible to its citizens. They are not involved in porn site but they too should be absent from the Internet.
6) Disposable electronics and appliances; All items should have a 10 year warranty and easily fixed! What we are now producing and made available to people are items that can not be fixed and end up in the garbage stream further destroying our lands, waters and air.
7) Stop imports of products that we can produce ourselves. Cargo tankers are an environmental catastrophe accidents waiting to happen.
8) Chemical production of all kinds should be minimized.
9) No more military, except for humanitarian, planetary health causes.
10) Uneven distribution of wealth; Limit wealth and you limit power. Limit power and you get closer to true democracy! Tired of living in a “Hypocrisy”. Wealth from Canadian resources should be shared by all not just the few who know how to manipulate words, numbers, guns, or people.
Yes the Green party has a Vision page but it is very short sighted Canadian package with no real concrete long term tangible ideas to help the health and safety of all life.
We must no longer be selfish spoiled Canadians but rather, Global citizens.
One Planet One People One Future Wake up and see the truth.
Grow up take a stand for what is needed. Declare war on the real issues facing Mankind.
Only us, Mankind can fix our woes as we are the only ones who have caused them!
