We spoke with Peter how political parties doing things the voter doesn’t like. We had also a bit of discussion, what can be changed in that. I mean I am not a person who discuss politics every evening or at every beer. I am however irritated by how things go. Also my life was and still is steered by the consequences of political decisions. Therefore here is first what we do not like. You may look at following image for illustration of the following explanation.
We have political Party A,B and C. They all have list of topics they promised to be solved by them if they go to the power of steering the country. Voter look at it and choose the one which has majority of the topics he likes to be solve on the list. We do not believe very much in persons anymore so we do not tend to choose based on the person who lead the country or similar. In our example we decide to vote for Party A. What will happen unfortunately is that Party A will not have get majority of the votes and therefore it will be necessary to create coalition with some other parties. The decision will come for whatever reason on Party C to join Party A in leading the country. Any coalition of course needs to make compromises and therefore the final list of topics will contain more things we do not like then what was on the list of original party.
Result is that political party to which you gave your vote is doing things you never what them to do and which they even were not on the list of their topic before election. They change and it is not only under the influence of results to join with Party C, it is possibly result of political, and financial interest as well as rather often private interests of the people in those political parties at the power.
So we asked ourselves how to make this better system. Peter come with the information that 97% people in The Netherlands they do have Internet. Why not to create system where people could express what they want. What is the topics, issues they would like that government will solve. After such a list exists people will be hired who will make plan how to solve top 10 issues.
This way we may stop with political parties at all and create national government company which will present a project how to solve top 10 issue people of the country like to be solved. They will run for 4-5 years a country based on that plan and possible top ten issue and project can be adjusted every year slightly. Company will pay salaries to people who like to run this project and the profit will be profit of the country.
I am in no case political expert, more the opposite, but I certainly would like to hear from you what you think about this idea and how you think it can be improved and what its risks are. Thank you for that in advance.
