Being apposed to the animal livestock regime should imply we would also be apposed to the human livestock regime... There are many many instances throughout our cultural battlefield of ideas discussions where there will be this unacknowledged twist or turn that is only ever coherent within a narrative of politics that looks at the government fundamentally as shepherd and the population as sheep, easiest to see as objectively undeniable are the budget numbers for things like public education (1.3 trillion for year 2021 and yet no fully accredited, self paced, digital university freely available to everyone), deliberately out of date elections system (you gotta believe in freedom for spreadsheet analysis will eventually approximate to better choices) and this anti automation (where are the vending machines?) anti mercantile (lots of landscape deliberately designed with plants that don't produce value) nanny state regime that has destroyed nearly every civil liberty and exceptional silver lining that was supposed to make the word freedom mean something in this country

Not one politician has ever ever ever mentioned what the actual numbers are for the public budget usgovernmentspending . com / classic ... A vegan philosophy of government that doesn't look at the population like livestock would require a truly informed citizenry

I am a steps to Minarchism type of person, the government is fundamentally coercive in nature and now that we have computers, shedding as much as possible from the physical infrastructure of the state and then consolidating whatever is left over into a website, leaving almost nothing but some reformed version of criminal law enforcement, seems like the most in alignment approach to a "land of the free kings" type society this place was supposed to be...

That said, steps presumes that the government will stop contributing to problems and instead start solving them... Removing subsidies for animal agriculture and converting jails, schools and administrative cafeterias vegan are obvious things that are transparently the governments fault, how much they contribute to the 600k homeless isn't known (possibilities of totalitarian maniacs planning out the lives of poor people aside) but what is known is what they're not doing to help, Paul Elkins has a YouTube video where he shows his $150 bike camper... that would give these people the flexibility to not be chained to some abusive jurisdiction or crammed together with other people with problems... at the moment this is totally disregarded by the government, leaving it to incompetent and corrupt religious fundamentalists (the salvation army is a billion dollars entity and I went out of my way to share the idea years ago)... ensuring this cultural shift would be a needed step

There are a few of these needed steps, but it presumes you're already in government, actually getting our vegan politicians elected is a whole other list of steps with what at the moment appear to be impossible barriers... Trying to skip ahead seems to produce people like Corey Booker who shrugs at throwing the animals under the bus, translate no into Spanish for me... merely being plant based is not good enough so how do we do it? Order of Operations matters, starting with a city government seems most plausible, starting our own vegan city seems like the easiest way to not be co-opted by local omnivores who refuse to convert, minimum requirements depending on the state where the attempt is made but I'm imagining the best chance of acceptance would be a floatwheel city/farm in a low population county

Spelling out what a floatwheel is, education reform, litigation reform, elections reform, etc etc are details that may have future iterations but aren't needed in order to explain the core idea and are better served in their own separate threads...

Anticipated questions like "isn't a floatwheel a more complete form of central planning than modern politics, how could that be a step towards Minarchism?" Answer: If our goals of Minarchism are more than what can be achieved merely by being in a particular locality, we would need a locality that acted upon the national/international political body, it would need to be that much more awesome of an idea than the modern culture

Reformed Criminal Law Enforcement
Because of the #minarchist ideals, not having a military and exclusively guarded by Law Enforcement with weaponized drones, a blended form of progressive ideas and conservative norms, an all female version of Texas Rangers where they cross jurisdictions to catch and return criminals, assumption being excluding males will be favorable towards civil liberties on average... Changing abusive standards like bullying people out of their cars instead of booting the vehicle is another very important thing, using notification drones whenever possible to picture and deliver immediate summons order, 911 social media engagement responsibility, in person law reference tablet the officer is trained to use and show, still do the central command in the moment support, etc etc etc

#Floatwheel
Imagine you dug a donut pool around a river, middle is stationary while (originally think of what bolting dozens of ships front to back in a circle would look like) farm sections and workshops and two story homes all floating on tree logs (proof of concept in Seattle) but in the shape of an enormous disk absorbing momentum of inertia from the water (even a slow rotation is enormous amounts of in the moment energy), the middle stationary circular part has logs sticking out that act as gear teeth, today we can just translate the electric with motors but even as far back as the bronze age with Archimedes and his belts/pulleys onto much smaller floatwheels on top of the bigger floatwheel would have been enough power for the clunky lumber mechanisms the craftsman were capable of back then...

#educationReform
I have a dedicated post with comments in my activism booklet posted on my Facebook cover photo but to give a quick overview, the average for Washington State is 10k $ per student every year with 8 billion $ for higher education (4 billion $ just for UW)... Links to budgets and reports in the comments...
The alternate vision would be to give the money directly to the students who then put it towards material resources (which would build over the 13 years they're in school and that should last for their entire independent study and or into college) and then towards teachers directly (30 kids in one class while the teachers are making less than 60k $ means theres a lot of waste in the middle)... The cost of a self paced, self directed, fully accredited, integrated with social media, digital university that integrated something like "meetup . com" would not cost billions of dollars a year, they're choosing to not update...

You gotta believe in #spreadsheetAnalysis - #electionsReform
Don't get rid of the filibuster until you start talking about giving everyone spreadsheet analysis integrated with the elections system in some way... I'm arguing that eventually the elections as a concept should be consolidated into something like a 365 static facebook setting you can toggle at any time, spreadsheet analysis is something that should happen continuously... Also, get rid of the house (expecting you to be keeping up with more than a hundred people just for government is irrational) and make senate legislation voting be percentage of the population that has chosen them to represent them, so if Corey Booker has 10 million and Schumer has 1 million, Booker is 10x Schumer when they count the vote, every state still gets 2, you as an individual can pick your 2 federal senators from the list of senators even if you don't live in that state while who gets on the list is still from votes consolidated by neighborhood districts... until you give everyone spreadsheet analysis, what I just described is irrational so don't get rid of the filibuster
Default settings in the software are areas of debate, having a monthly default back to the locality, forcing 24 clicks a year to change to a non locality seems reasonable (children who changed it once and never pay attention again isn't fair to the locality, but then what if pressure from localities some day make that sufficiently abusive...) or perhaps assigning a democratic algorithm and defaults to the top two, adding emphasis to people so it's biased across others decisions (mother gets 20%, father gets 10%, etc)
Current events in the US political world is about the voting rights act renewal, telling people the reforms already happened when it's all still on TV instead of computers is either dishonest or gullible muggle thing (telepathy is real, the government lies and abuses people with it)... Having some sort of official physical representation that is in some local public square on an elevated platform you can see under should be mandated, just to let people know without faith, cash incentives so people will verify and broadcast inaccuracies if they ever happen should be advertised from the public budget

#litigationReform
A few points, first it makes sense to have an asynchronous trial so as to facilitate DIY (and/or collaborative) representation possibilities for people who want to use the Q&A bot and look up definitions or standards, secondly the jury system is a tyranny to the locality type thing whereas today it could be much more anonymous and high quality (people could be juror from anywhere, would have changed a few racist equitals, writtenhouse, etc), thirdly the supreme court should be restructured as a query across the whole of the judicial population (thousands of trained judges, not a handful)
