Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The most direct way to address the benefit that incumbents would enjoy from a JG program is to institute an asset tax on all individuals with a threshold somewhere between the equivalent of US$2 million and $10 million. To be effective it would have to be highly progressive above that threshold. In the US almost all of the potential beneficiaries of such a tax would think it was unfair to those on whom it is levied. Sadly.

Well, I think the whole State/Tax thing and representative democracy are soooo Last Century, anyway ;-)

In the emerging reality-based and participative networked future the Party won't create the Policy, according to some misbegotten ideology - the Policy will create the Party.
