Proposed reforms

Post  polka23dot on Sun May 06, 2012 8:52 am

It is not clear if our organization should restrict its activity to Islam, or attempt to make a comprehensive political platform suitable for a political party. If we try to make a comprehensive political platform, we should address many political issues. Here are some of them:
1. Changing driving side from left to right in the UK. (Sweden switched in 1967, despite public opposition.)
2. Metric system in the USA. (Only three countries - Burma, Liberia, and USA have not adopted the metric system.)
3. Abolishing cash so that all financial transactions are electronic transactions. (The government of Singapore was going to do that a decade ago to reduce crime, but it changed its mind.)
4. Stupid, unemployed mothers have more children than smart mothers. 40% of German women with college education have no children. This selective breeding, called dysgenics, harms the genomes of future generations. The Israeli government and a few other governments support eugenics in order to improve the genomes. I believe that more taxpayers money should be spent on improving eugenic technologies.
5. Most high-caliber scientists believe that the earth is overpopulated. There are many ways to reduce the human population: propaganda, preferential treatment of small families, free quinacrine sterilization...
6. Prisoners are permitted to work to reduce the cost of their incarceration.
7. Business size is defined as the number of its employees. The maximum business size is 100,000 employees.
8. New international language better that Esperanto: http://www.ygyde.neostrada.pl/

My responses

Post  T.J. Donatello on Fri May 11, 2012 3:18 am

1 - No; it has no relevance and it will just create more problems than it will solve, if it solves any.
2 - Yes.
3 - No; electronic signals cannot replace real currency.
4 - No; we need people who are satisfied with jobs that require less intelligence, so that the jobs other people don't want to do will get done.
5 - The world's European population is not big enough to sustain itself. The reason the world is overpopulated is because the white-and-wealthy countries of the world give so much money (without asking voters their opinion) to Third World places like Africa. It is the Africans who are overpopulating the planet. I believe it is imperative that we stop funding and feeding the population growth in these places. No more free food, no more free vaccines... Africa has more urban area today than all of North America does, because they have been cutting down forests to create more slums for them to live in.
6 - I don't believe in the prison system except in a few cases; I believe that most criminal activity should entail psychiatric rehabiliation, fines, and community service. More severe cases should have a psychiatrist cure the criminal with LSD-assisted therapy. The most extreme cases should merit capital punishment.
7 - I don't support the idea of one international language, since I am against One World Government. However, I do believe that the world's European population needs a language to help bond them together. All of Europe, plus countries like Canada, the USA, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, and any other places where the majority population is full-blooded European, should begin learning Peano's Interlingua. Peano took the Latin language - which has influenced the development of all modern European languages - and he simplified it and removed most of the word genders and inflections, to create a simple and beautiful language that is known commonly as "Latino Sine Flexione", "Peano's Interlingua", or perhaps "New Latin".


In conclusion of this posting, I still oppose the idea of us becoming a political party. Do you think the Marijuana Party has ever achieved anything by becoming a party? Politics today in most liberal democracies is dominated by big political parties bloated with moderates. Let them have the politics if they like; if the Templars is successful in rallying like-minded people who have been reluctant to express their emotions to help change the culture, the moderates who dominate politics will be forced to accept us, or retire.

This argument is not convincing because the jobs that slaves used to perform are now done by machines. It takes the IQ of about 75 to be competent fast food restaurant worker, and yet the average IQ of black African is dismal 67. This means that most black Africans cannot be employed in the modern economy - they are permanently unemployable and they are prone to crime because they are unemployable. Australian Aborigines have the average IQ of 62 and incredibly high crime rate. Bushmen and Pygmies have the average IQ of 54. About 75% of our IQ is inherited.

There is more to eugenics than intelligence. For example, about 2% of blacks have a gene which makes it possible to consume large amounts of saturated fat without any rise in the blood's cholesterol. A few dozen of Italians have the same gene. (I am white and I have high level of cholesterol.) The Israeli government provides free genetic screening for future parents to prevent many genetic illnesses which are common among the Jews.

Electronic cigarettes

Post  polka23dot on Thu Aug 09, 2012 3:22 pm

All tobacco products that are smoked or chewed should be banned and replaced with electronic cigarettes. Preliminary tests of the electronic cigarettes indicate that they are nearly harmless, and yet some countries have banned them.Rolling Eyes Details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electronic_cigarette
If we have our own website, I will welcome advertisements from the Electronic Cigarette Association. (I do not smoke, do not use illegal narcotics, and do not consume alcoholic beverages.)

Instant-runoff voting

Post  polka23dot on Fri Aug 10, 2012 5:49 pm

Some voting systems are better than other voting systems. More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voting_system

Instant-runoff voting is rather popular and probably deserves our support. More info:

Ban on cigarette sales to anyone born after the year 2000

Post  polka23dot on Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:36 pm

The Australian state of Tasmania is considering a ban on cigarette sales to anyone born after the year 2000 in an attempt to create a smoking-free generation... It would be the world's first such age-based ban and is also reportedly being considered in Singapore and Finland. source: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/australiaandthepacific/australia/9492504/Tasmania-considers-cigarette-ban-for-anyone-born-after-2000.html

We need better voters

Post  polka23dot on Sun Sep 30, 2012 12:52 pm

"Every country has the government it deserves." - Joseph Marie de Maistre (French Diplomat, Writer, Philosopher and Politician, 1753-1821)

When compared with the autocratic government of Singapore, our Western democracies look like banana republics. They are dysfunctional because our voters (according to the polls) do not care about political platforms of our politicians. We have bad politicians because we have stupid voters. To improve the quality of the politicians, we have to improve the quality of the voters. For example, we can restrict the voting rights to those who have the minimum IQ (intelligence quotient) of 100.

We need more standards

Post  polka23dot on Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:29 pm

The lack of standards harms industries and users of industrial products.

There are several dozens of mutually incompatible alternating current power plugs and sockets. Almost every electronic camera uses expensive, proprietary batteries that cannot be used in other cameras. When the proprietary batteries are no longer manufactured, you have you discard the camera. Almost every automobile uses different kind of windshield wipers. Most laptop computer parts are not interchangeable. Manufacturers of inkjet and laser printers not only make incompatible ink and toner cartridges, but they threaten you with voiding the warranty if you use cartridges made by their competitors. (In many countries voiding the warranty is illegal.) Our automobiles are badly damaged in a minor collisions because they either have no bumpers, of they have bumpers mounted at different heights. There is also lack of standards in medical records and terminology.

Automobile turn signal lights are ambiguous because they are used to send two different messages:
1. I want to make a turn.
2. I am making a turn.
These messages should be conveyed by different blinking speeds. Slow blinking should mean that I want to make a turn. Fast blinking should mean that I am making a turn.
Fast alternate blinking (left, right, left, right, etc.) should mean that I am yielding to a pedestrian or a driver.

British mains plugs are the best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEfP1OKKz_Q

EN 13402 is a European standard for labelling clothes sizes. It is based on body dimensions, measured in centimeters. source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EN_13402

The International (shoe size) Standard is ISO 9407... known as Mondopoint... is based on the mean foot length and width for which the shoe is suitable, measured in millimeters. A shoe size of 280/110 indicates a mean foot length of 280 millimeters (11 in) and width of 110 millimeters (4.3 in)... Mondopoint... is... used by NATO and other military services. Mondopoint is also used for ski boots. source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoe_size

Obesity

Post  polka23dot on Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:36 pm

USA is the fattest nation on earth because Americans spend most of their life sitting in front of television sets and computers. The best way to reduce this record-breaking obesity is re-designing all television sets and computers so that they are powered by stationary bicycles. We also need "junk food tax" which is proportional to the amount of saturated fat and sodium. (Salt and animal food should be exempted from this tax.)

Fat children living in Singapore are separated from their classmates and ordered to do more exercising until they lose weight. source: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6124732/ns/health-childrens_health/t/singapore-takes-strict-steps-against-obesity/#.UGhKfq7mG7M

Using the latest cutting-edge techniques, researchers discovered that doing 15 minutes a day of moderate exercise lowered a child's chances of being obese by almost 50 per cent. As long as the activity was at least of the level of a brisk walk - enough to make your child a little out a breath -- it seemed to be of benefit.

Edible insects

Is veganism child abuse? http://www.salon.com/2014/06/26/is_veganism_child_abuse/

Catholics and Orthodox Christians do not view themselves as engaging in cannibalism when taking communion, as it is believed that although the bread and wine become of the same substance as the body and blood of Christ before being consumed, they remain bread and wine in all ways to the senses. Catholics refer to this as transubstantiation; the Orthodox believe the change occurs, but hesitate to attempt a description of the mechanism, believing it to be a sacred mystery. In most Lutheran denominations, the consumption is described as all four being physically present, but only two being detectable to the senses. Most Protestants and other Christian denominations do not believe that transubstantiation (or any actual physical presence of Jesus in any form) occurs at all. source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taboo_food_and_drink#Humans
