Hey Umair reader!
I think Umair is right on this issue. But Marx predicted it a long time ago. Pure capitalism will fall in on itself. In my opinion, it is only the intervention of progressive ideas that has, so far, kept the fall from falling a lot sooner.
Umair doesn’t seem to have a solution — except for the election of Ms. Warren. The problem is that 40% of the population is going to hate her guts if she is elected. Can you imagine a job where 40% of your co-workers hate your guts? How much “change” can you really get done?
Please read Umair’s theories of Eudonamics to create a better world. They are great. The problem is that we won’t be able to get there if we insist on western democracy.
We need a totally new system of governance. Maybe one that has a foundation of Eudanomics in the first place. The conflict, contention, and contempt of western democracy just don’t fit in Umair’s utopia.
