    Yes most definitely, a complete overhaul of the system is needed. Out with the old and in with the new.

    Yes, certainly. The problem with party politics is that the party becomes the focus of allegiance rather than the country. Thus, the outcome of an election amounts to little more than an interparty divvying-up of the spoils every five years. For this reason it may be prudent to eschew the word “party” when referring to DDI. DDI is a movement, not a party.

    Again, yes, of course. When the historian Richard Pipes characterised Fascism and Bolshevism as “heresies of Socialism” he had his head so far up yonder as to miss the point completely—Socialism is itself the mother-heresy, the original, socially-fissiparous (but highly moral!) flouting of ethics. Seen aright therefore, Direct Democracy is the only ethically sound and worthwhile (perhaps in association with Georgian Economics, q.v.) game in town.

    A quotation; “where a People fear a government, there is Tyranny; where a government fears a People, there is Liberty”. It scarcely surprises one, upon contemplating Mr. Jefferson’s words, to sense the covert avidity with which Articles 47 and 48 were deleted from the Constitution of 1922 and hidden from view ever since.
    (Why, by the way, am I and the good Ms. McDermott the only ones commenting here?)

    A quotation, specifically for the Irish People. “It is a great truth that there never was for any long time a corrupt representative of a virtuous people, nor a mean, sluggish, careless people that ever had good government. If it is true that the government forms the people, it is equally true that the people impart their character to their government. Such as you are, sooner or later must parliament become”. Now people, stick THAT in your Aquascutum, ok!

    I went to Categories, there on the right, expecting to see a DDI position on this matter of taxation. There is none, and I wonder why not?
