Why don't politicians consider what is Best for All?
I was listening to a story on NPR a few days ago detailing Obama's recent speech about the Israel/Palestine conflict. The story focused on whether or not Obama was potentially causing a rift among the members of his Democratic political party as a result of the position he took on the issue.
The point that stood out the most for me was the fact that the Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid, was 'ticked off' with the President for his remarks that Israel should be willing to recognize Palestine as a legitimate state and to swap certain geographic locations with the Palestinians as part of the 'peace process'.
The reason why Harry Reid was so 'ticked off', according to the news reporter, was that there is an election coming up and Reid has to defend a certain number of seats in the senate to prevent them from falling into the hands of the Republican party. Meaning, if the President were to say things that caused voters to turn away from the Democrats due to his position on Israel, then this would cause the Democratic party to lose certain elections and thus no longer have the majority vote in the Senate.
Now, looking at this, I realized just how messed up modern politics is, and how from the perspective of the news program, this dispute was perfectly normal, legitimate, and defensible.
But, why wasn't anyone considering whether Obama's remarks actually made sense?
Why wasn't the decision to either stand by his remarks or to argue against them made based on whether his stance was actually Best for All or not?
Instead, the politicians are only concerned with keeping themselves and their like-minded compatriots in office. Which inevitably requires them to compromise what is Best for All, usually to secure backroom deals with corporations to pass legislation in their favor just to secure enough money to get re-elected.
In an Equal Money System, government administrators will only be allowed to make decisions based on the consideration of what is Best for All. And any decision that cannot be shown to be mathematically certain to accumulate in the Best Interest of All, will simply not be considered as an option.
In an Equal Money System, we will no longer accept and allow ourselves to compromise our Principles in the name of money. Politicians (if we even continue to call them that) will hold positions of responsibility because they actually care about Life, and not just for the sake of personal power or money or to perpetuate their own limited beliefs and ideas about reality.
Equal Money is both a political and a Democratic solution to this world's problems.
