    Signals: How do honest people show themselves

    Indeed, the value in trust is so high that we can't afford to run a country without it. Imagine having to be able to double check every statement or transaction ? Those who sell verification services and security know this...

    Half of Canada contributes nothing to its tax base.

    Normally that's quite a ridiculous thing to consider, but these days....

    And he, in turns, pays foreign agents to pee on him in return for state secrets.... Good luck, now.

    Says the resident of the country whose leader was/is under investigation for being a foreign agent !

    Not true. We have American excess including hyperbolic rants.

    1. I'm glad you pointed out that policies have been in place 70 or 80 years, as I was going to do that. I would also call it forced charity. 70 or 80 years, though, is actually a very long time for a policy to live. So it's not a failure. You would need to replace it with an updated version that addresses shortcomings. 2. We had one interesting component of the discussion given to us on this thread: real wage gains. What are the other components?
  10. 1. Sure, but like evolution you will have an event that causes a great leap. Like the American revolution. 2.Now ? It's more exciting now than in the past, as evidenced by the 24-hour news cycle bloodsport. The soundbyte, YouTube clip and outrage meme IS politics. 3. Very true. This helped Trump too as people felt they 'knew' him from his show The Apprentice. 4. It's too complex, that's the thing. We could reduce the noise by just flat-taxing and flat-benefitting everyone. 5. I would say illiterate more than ignorant, and that doesn't mean not able to read but not connected to the literature and writing based publics for which democracy was designed. 6. Yes and that creates synergy. Good solutions come from intelligent and well-opposed points of view. Dumb arguments mean both left- and right- propose solutions are worse. 7. Well... the system as you describe it has the worse of our system. Appointments would soon become favourable to an inner clique. Our system is designed to become unbiased and it ends up being biased to the connected LibraCons. Good on you for thinking about this, though. I would submit something more open, but I have nothing to say on that. I do think that benefis should be administered and run by private agencies administered through a board, like Canada Post. Take more power away from government for things that we don't have politics about anymore.

    Well, the question was about whether 1/2 the population paying taxes for the other is the normal state of affairs, wasn't it?

    Are Cultural Laws against Free Speech?...

    Yes, ok. Not Liberal, but Canadian.

    Ok, you said Liberal.

    1. How is this the Liberal cabinet ? Zundel went to the Supreme Court during a Conservative government as did Keegstra https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R_v_Keegstra 2. The hateful things said in the bible and Quran are moral condemnations, not lies and race bating. Sorry you can't see the difference between Naziism and holy books. But even holy books can be disallowed by our Hate Laws and this has happened also.
