Subject:   [september17discuss] Re: can we try to come up with one demand?

Congress is ostensibly not real democracy, it was specifically

designed by landlords like Madison and Hamilton to ensure it was not

democratic because of the fear of the unwashed masses and has been

accomplishing this job for the past 224 years. It's no different from

most parliamentary systems.


They themselves said it was not democracy. 224 years ago, corporations

were not an influence on politics unless it was the great colonial

companies of France, Britain and the Dutch Republic.



Additionally we're still falling in the trap of electoralism when we

could make a demand to the people. Assemblies, everywhere.


The thing is the vast majority of the people who obsess over the one

demand have placed themselves as enemies of the movement to begin with.
