20. Politics only? No. Democracy, the goal of which is utilitarian: the greatest good for the greatest

number. I'm sure everyone here has heard of that philosophy, which can be implemented as principle and method.

You can't compromise democracy. It's the voice, well recorded and represented -- when it's not chiseled away by expedience of con men and capitalists -- of The People.

When you do, you're no better than Putin, who runs on the 'ends justify the means' method in his federation. Means is covered up by some "show of democracy," like a parliament, or, when that's scorned by the people, force of civilian 'guards' or military guns and money.

And don't leave the restructuring of the other 49 states up to me. That's exactly why this party fails. It doesn't look at best practices that will win those other 49 states.

Yeah, pouring clean water into a bucket full of dirty water doesn't make it clean, but pour enough in, long enough, and it does.
