IV for a troubled world - 100% solution - stat

The 1/3 solution simply isn't strong enough to save our troubled world, already facing the sad human consequences, in ports all along the African shore of the Mediterranean, of global warming and species / habitat loss.

We can not expect to find either the breadth of answers or the width of consensus needed to salvage this planet inside national Cabinets that represent only one third of the voters and in actuality are doing the bidding of only 1% of the voters.

(Your guess as to which one percent.)

Only IV, inclusive voting and inclusive voices, not a cold-hearted mathematical electoral formula but rather a sincere warm-hearted moral pledge to ensure that all the world's governments and societies are as inclusive as possible, can save us now.

We need IV, taken full strength - with 100% of the world contributing ideas and help and 100% of the world sharing in the benefits - if we are all to survive.

But a move to IV to save this world won't come easy, because the resistance of the 1% will be fierce and deadly.

What IV really needs is people like the early suffragettes, people willing to chain themselves to fences, to go to jail, to be force-fed and even to die for what they believed in --- a more inclusive voting system , one that included the votes, and sometimes even the voices of women, in parliament.

What IV does not need, to be rudely blunt about it, is more people like the free world's Jewish population, 99% of whom were (between 1933 and 1945) unwilling to do anything that even hinted of public protest or civil disobedience, in their lacklustre efforts to save the lives of nine million European Jews.

Which Side Are You On ?

Green-minded activists will soon have to decide.

Most will choose to remain as deferential to authority (and as useless) as the average 1930s-1940s Jewish North American.

Others will choose to be as stubborn, unyielding, inflexible, unbending, intransigent, intractable, obdurate, mulish, bullheaded, stubborn as a mule, pigheaded, self-willed, strong-willed, headstrong, willful, contrary, perverse, recalcitrant, refractory, uncooperative, unmanageable, stiff-necked, rigid, uncompromising, implacable, unrelenting, immovable, unshakable; persistent, tenacious, pertinacious, dogged, single-minded (and as successful) as 1910s' suffragettes....
