The Benefits Of Reforming Our Senate With US Senate As Model

by exegesisme

US senate plays crucial role in US politics. It equally represents each state, balances and adjusts the mood of people which reflects in US House of Representatives. It deals with much farther concerns and issues related to US benefits in long run, which integrate with the current benefits of US people represented by US House of Representatives.

Comparing with US political system, Canadian Senate is near to useless. Although we have the Queen Governor General system in Canada, which somehow plays partial function in Canada similarly to the role of US senate in US, we still need a Senate more similarly with US senate.

With a US Senate-like Canadian Senate, the benefits of each province and each territory are represented better in federal level, and some important concerns would be much better dealt through this mechanism than any other present mechanism. The reformed Senate would have many important and powerful committees for researching and understanding Canadian benefits in long strain. And also important, each Senator has the right to run for the Prime Minister directly, which increases the mental function of the position of Prime Minister, which means each senator who has right to run for PM in future, would naturally consider each legislation in the eye of a PM.

Canada should admit US political system is more advanced in both political theory and human natural expectation, which has already proved by histories of these two nations. I admit our political system has some advantage which US political system has not.

My argument is all in all, today we should have an ambition to unify the advantages of these two political systems for our benefits and the benefits of our offspring in future and far future.

      Sorry to say, but I lost my faith in this corrupt organization that serves the political will of a few super powers and does little to keep the peace, stop Russian and American invasions, and has no way to punish any member of the Veto-holding members. They consume a lot of money and are seldom objective as delegates (ambassadors) trade their votes for favors and money. http://www.defenddemocracy.org/united-nations-corruption-and-the-need-for-reform/
      Like the IMF, WTO, and World Bank, the UN has become just another organization that serves the elite who have their own agendas. Yeah they operate UNICEF and a few good agencies, but overall it is a political machine that favors western and specifically American foreign policies. http://www.economist.com/node/4267109

      The Increasing Mass Shootings In US Mark Human New Era
      By exegesisme
      1 This information shows the deadliest ​12 mass shootings since 1949 in US, half of them happened in recent 10 years, the rate increases from once ten years to more than once two years.
      2 What most remarkably happened in recent 10 years? That is the war against terrorism.
      3 I believe the model of the war against terrorism causes US inner tension, which would flow and accumulate in the society. The tension decreases the wellbeing of general people in US, and accumulates in special ones.
      4 Once other factors gather together, would breakthrough the borderline of the most tolerance of a weak and violent soul, and trigger a mass shooting.
      5 I believe it is the time to discuss the model against terrorism, which should not decrease the wellbeing of general people, should not increase the tension of the whole society, and should prevent the weakest links be broken. Considering the rising of ISIS and so many citizens take part in it from western nations, I believe the model now in using is absolutely failed.
      6 I study the information again, I find more details of the deadliest mass shootings. Their distribution in time is following: from 1949 to 1983, 2 times with 29 total dead in 34 years; from 1984 to 2006, 4 times with 71 total dead in 22 years; from 2007 to 2015, 6 times with 110 total dead in only 9 years.
      7 The increasing tendency is very obvious with the three periods. What is most remarkable for the three periods? Maybe, from 1949 to 1983 is before information era, from 1984 to 2006 is the growth of information era, from 2007 to 2015 and hereafter is post information era.
      8 In the post information era, it is much easy to look for information of any thing, and so to do any thing much easy, doing good things, doing bad things, and doing evil things are becoming easier. Everyone are much more powerful than before.
      9 Therefore, the wellbeing of everyone, and the morality and ethics of everyone are more important to the whole being than before. The tragedy of one is more likely decreasing the wellbeing of others.
      10 The inequality before emerges so obvious and so striking in eyes of everyone, the old answer can not explain the actual and fast naked facts. Therefore, the increased rate of the deadliest mass shootings is only a striking mark for the change of era. Everyone should confront we are in a new era with new traits, we contribute its issues and also are part of its answers. We are condemned to change ourselves, no one can escape.

      Xi Jinping May Reform Chinese Politics Historically​
      By Exegesisme
      On the synthesis of many messages from super-nature, human speculations, and my own intention, attentions and experiences, Xi Jinping may reform Chinese politics historically. The historical political reformation in China, may also play a role to promote the political reformation internationally.
      If this speculation is correct, the long expected Chinese political reformation will become the major un-open topic between Xi and the US President Obama in the scheduled state visit of Xi to USA, and the visit will be described as very successful by both nations thereafter, no matter other differences are there.
      I believe that Xi has been trying to form an domestic extensive political ally, and a major figure in this ally is Hu Jintao, and a figure is Wen Jiabao, each of them has his own reasons in the ally, and others. For example, Sun Chunlan, the secretary of the United Front Work Department, may be mainly responsible for forming this ally for the coming historical political reformation in China, and the traditional work of the United Front Work Department is responded by the first vice-secretary of the United Front Work Department. It is the first time that the major officers of the United Front Work Department of the communist party in China were arranged in this way, and this speculation is the most reasonable way to explain the arrangement until this moment. Also there are some arguments that the real power is not in Xi's hands, but in Hu's hands.
      Although the messages from super-nature usually are proved wrong, this speculation is near the core of my meditation and is not proved wrong yet.
      Major obvious changes are in the opposite direction, the signs implying this speculation are still in their subtle phases.

      The Unconstitutional Political Practice Should Be Ended Soon
      By Exegesisme
      The definition of democracy: is ruled by the omnipotent majority. In a democracy, an individual, and any group of individuals composing any minority, have no protection against the unlimited power of the majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man.(1)
      The definition of republic: A republic is a representative democracy with a written constitution of basic rights that protect the minority from being completely unrepresented or overridden by the majority.(1)
      From the definitions of democracy and republic, I found that politically a republican regime is more advanced than a democratic regime, and a republic is developed for overcoming the trap of democracy. The definition of republic includes the good part meaning of democracy, but the definition of democracy does not the more advanced meaning of republic. If I have right to choose, I choose to live in a republican regime other than a democratic regime, and I choose to live in a more republican regime other than a less republican regime. The reason is that, if I am one of majority, I dislike the omnipotent power, and if I am one of minority, I hope my fundamental rights are in good protection.
      As I measure the politics in Canada, I believe that it is a republic other than a pure democracy. We have a written constitution, we have the Chapter of Rights and Freedoms. However, I also notice that, in political practice, because of the Canadian political history, even the rights and freedoms of the representative function of a MP are under the limitation of the discipline of her or his own party.
      "Whether MPs should act as delegates or trustees, both views of representation are constrained by another reality of Canada's parliamentary tradition: party politics and discipline. Most MPs are members of a political party and, as such, are required to follow the wishes of their party when deliberating and acting in the House. In Canada party discipline is much more acute than in other western democracies. In the United States and the United Kingdom, for example, representatives enjoy considerably more freedom from their parties. Canadian MPs, however, are expected to follow the direction set by their parties' leadership and caucus — even when that direction is in opposition to their views or the demands of their constituents."(2)
      This corrupt custom, the discipline of a party has been put over the constitutional rights and freedoms, and also over the representative function, is unconstitutional, and should be ended as fast as we can. We, the Canadian people, should ask strongly that each MP should be really responsible for her or his riding, and we need more republic and good democracy, we do not need a false democracy!
