Business should be set be policed to crack down on the risk taking that lead to the recent recession and to safeguard the worker rights. Business should not be exterminated or prevented from growing; the main thing is to take down monopolies well ensuring that profit does not gain greater important than progress. Such notion may lead to better results then both planed economy and capitalist market combined.
Authoritarianism is over reliant on a single figure most of the time, leading to a single rash decisions leading to problems. Similarly oppression is not only morally pragmatic; it is inefficient. Why work your hardest if your foremen keep beating you up? It is said that when tyranny becomes a reality, revolution becomes justified. At the moment in our representative government we face problems that not everyone can just decide “I want to be a political figure” and have chance to win against the status quo, for the status quo is funded and familiar. We are also see corruption, political figures paid by lobbyists to do certain acts and a media controlled via monopolies that strive for their own power. Such must be dealt with to create a true democracy.
However; democracy can not emerge without government. Anarchy is not a solution; it is a force of the strong over the weak. In turn it is also would lead to groups emerging that strive to create order... via a dictatorship of the most harsh? Also direct democracy has issues. People are... not the wisest of things and may vote for the most ideoitc of laws... or worse the most oppressive of laws. We can get misinformed via media and we may seek that of the selfish as oppose to the selfless. How many of us would introduce a tax on ourselves baring the selfless? Things are short term focus now but may be short term focus then.
We must have a structure to allow good decisions to make... and the Civil Service of the society must be set to ensure the shortfalls of democracy are dealt with via proving the long term aims in management. Perhaps setting a house of a parliament to appointing senior figures of fields like Science, education, civil welfare, industry, merchants and such may be an answer to address balance? Maybe. Constructed via the fields elected the candidates for appointment? Maybe.
What is important is balance; harmony between order and chaos will lead to a bright future. Such be needed for the evolution of humanity.
