ok i just bashed the keyboard without editing so the following is a mess, but I reckon I'll use this thread to draft and refine my thoughts. I work better with an audience. I can acually write without going off on tangents btw. Just not today. Anyway I've paused and posted the first bit and ill continue the rest in a bit.
So I went on a proper Athens kick recently, in particular reading Thucydides history of the pel war. It reignighted my wonder at how the fuck Athens was able to do all the crazy shit they did; not just basically invent Western Civilisation but also create an empire then bully everyone and nearly conquer Greece until they fucked it all up trying to conquer Sicily as well and the Spartans got bankrolled with jew persian gold and shut it down. Shut it down for... a year; as always the democracy itself was the target for outsiders but as always the polis quickly organised a counter revolutionary force and ousted the oligarchy (I'm gonna get to firearm ownership later).
Basically Athenian style democracy aka demokratia (the term I'll use from now on to distinguish it from modern "democracy") unlocks terrifying magical powers in a country that is equipped to handle it. Powers such that the only thing that stopped Athens was Alexander shutting the demokratia down by force, then the Romans keeping the boot on their throat so they couldn't recover. Powers such that in the Greek city states oligarchies of aristocracy and wealth constantly had to brutally put it down (if they could) using outside help. Essentially it removes all power of special interests and transfers power to the demos (the citizens at large). The average australian/american/brit knows what is best for himself, his family, his town and his country, isn't cucked to special interests or ideologies and therefore, on average, makes the best decisions for the state. Athens fucking proves this time and time again. The assembly gets together debates shit makes a decision bam; they can move quicker and more flexibly than their opponents and one-up them every time. The flip side is justice: the courts were simply juries chosen by lot with no lawyers or judges; prosecutior and defendant plead their own case and the jury of 100 to 1000 is judge, jury and executioner. It is also the most sovereign body and defender of the constitution aka law: if the assembly made a decree or policy unlawful the courts could can it. So it doubled as the Supreme Court as well. As the annual jury aka court was 6000 average Athenians chosen by lot, it was pure justice: money couldn't win court cases. Punishments could be brutal, depending on the crime. But it was always just, and no one escaped; as the accuser/prosecutor you yourself could be convicted and punished for wasting the court's time. It was infinitely more involved than this ofc; there were magistrates for small cases (almost everything was contract disputes), hundreds of public officials and panels (ministries pretty much, for ship building, the marketplace, public works yada yada) etc; all chosen by lot and subject to the dreaded Audit at the end of their service. Some fun maybe-related court facts: bribery got death, killing a man caught sleeping with your wife/daughter/sister was justifiable homicide, and killing thieves caught in the act came under the modern law doctrine of self-help. One time a nigga was convicted of assault and his friends were convicted and fined too, simply because they were there and encouraged him. There are a million examples of amazing (sometimes hilarious) court cases I could name, but lets just leave it at this: no one escapes Athenian justice. It ain't some crusty old lawyer cunt aka judge with a shitty opinion judging you; it is your fellow countrymen.ANGLODEMOKRATIA, OR, THE RETURN TO BEING WHITE
wooo I can use headings nigga. Anyway letting the mob have power has always been the secret weapon of the European; in fact the more power the mob gets the greater heights the state and people ascend to. This is how it's done (I'll use Australia for simplification purposes):CITIZENSHIP: THE FOUNDATION
Full citizenship is offered to Australian men of 20 years age and older, who are at least 4th (maybe 5th?) generation Australian on both sides, and have done their 12 month military service at 18 or 19. If the state votes for war then naturally you're on call.
Women are great and I love them dearly (they're all nice to me and either wanna bang me or be my mum for some reason) but they can't be trusted with affairs of the state. Our forefathers going back to homo erectus knew this; we thought we knew better but the last hundred years has shown they were right. Disappointing but I ain't crying about it; facts are facts.
The 18yo thing is bullshit; I was a fucking idiot at 18 and so were you. This needs no discussion; it has no relation to drinking laws FYI.
4th or preferably 5th gen means only real blood and soil Australians get citizenship. Anglo Saxon and Aboriginal Aussie blokes who are tied to the country, care deeply about it and each other. This automatically and easily excludes all ethnics and immigrants. This is an absolute prerequisite above all else; the rest of the system will fall apart without it, because the foundation is trust based on common race, heritage and culture. This is self explanatory so I won't go further.
The year's military service is also copied from Athens, and it serves several crucial roles. Firstly it will be harsh, so it will dissuade the pencil-necked power hungry goobers from applying for citizenship. Secondly, it must be understood that unlike the lies today's failed system tells, nothing is free; to take part in the demokratia is a fucking privilege and carries with it heavy responsibilties; more responsibilties than rights. Finally it will leave citizens extremely well trained and proficient with their battle rifle (I guess right now that'd be the M4 though it's not a rifle). Citizens upon graduation will keep their rifle; their will cherish it, maintain it, keep practice with it. There are no restrictions; citizens can open carry it if they wish. Non-citizens will be banned from ownership of such weapons with extreme prejudice, because the rifle is the symbol of demokratia: this shit isn't based on gay abstract concepts like natural rights or people's sovereignty or divine right of kings. The demokratia derives its authority from force, and the ability of the citizens to apply it. This system would nullify the power of all the powers that be and you never know how far they're willing to go, so being always ready to defend the democracy is actually extremely important.

And I fucking blame you fuckwits who voted for Trump in the primary, classic low information voter.
We need pull taxes, to cull the opinions of DINDU's and inbred Trump supporters.
