political economic theory hopism
Hopism is political theory written by an ordinary person with ordinary aspirations for life. Hopism recognises and accepts human nature’s weaknesses and strengths and tries to build a realistic framework to create a society of low tax, high social service and low waste.
This is Hopism-Beta-Edition, republished again after a four year break due to background issues. It is still edition 1 and could do with some editing, better english, slicker graphics, some videos and many more diagrams. That will get done sometime during rainy dark November 2014, together with a discussion forum, where this rough idea can be beaten into shape and better written by contributors.
The end result is more useful work done, a happier society and more free time to enjoy your life - whilst knowing that social obligations are met.
Hopism is short and sweet
Hopism is under development, there will be bits you like and bits you dont, maybe there could be different splinter variants. The theory itself is simple and should take less than an afternoon to understand. There are around twenty texts on the webring, each less than a thousand words.

The point of folkcracy is perfectly illustrated as you read the ideas of Hopism. It is inevitable that you will not agree with some of the proposals. It will then be up to you to persuade your fellow citizens to vote in a certain way when that issue comes around to be discussed and voted for. Everybody will get to follow their exact opinion, and vote for their exact opinion.
The old joke, ”it doesnt matter who you vote for, the government always wins” will no longer apply.
The people will decide and the people will get what they vote for.
This brings alive the true notion of democracy in all issues and policies according to the true definition of the word and values of ”democracy” i.e. the people to rule.
If politicians are unwilling to consider a switch to folkcracy through conventional political will, folkcracy will be attempted via a plebiscite on 2nd February, 2022 and worldwide plebiscites will be encouraged locally thereafter.
