Can't disagree with the points you make Teribus, but how many other "isms" have actually been put into practice?

Looking to the future there must be better ways of governance than "democracy" which is obviously manipulated by powerful pressure groups, and even more so by the "social media".....not to mention the interests of capital or personal greed.

Take "Socialism", a great theory, but to be put into practice it requires the demolition of the whole apparatus of Capitalism....a mammoth task to provide a level playing field...and a realisation that many people perhaps the majority are going to be worse off financially, with a lower MATERIAL standard of living.

Just like the Scottish referendum, most people don't want to make that leap of faith, so we continue to sink into the mire of greed ignorance and waste.

If the underclass are to be inspired into contributing to society, then the obscenity at the other end of the spectrum must be addressed

If we do not plan for the future, we will have NO future.

Ian takes a lot of showers, doesn't he......must be a right stinker?
