We must, to a great extent, limit the power we give to humans.

Anarchy would work in your ideal world.

You know where I'm from Clyde, have you ever bothered to take a look at and examine a different reality?

Unfortunately, those humans given the power, or those replacing them in the future. Will, to those who truly understand human frailties and history. Use their authority to increase their power and enrich their wealth to the detriment of the people, as has always happened and will always happen.
Until we can ensure that only benevolent, moral and ethical humans will be given the power.

Checks and balances. Put a GOP in white house, require democrat majority in congress.

Are you trying to tell us that you are a member of a superior alien race & not a human?

It would seem to me you are viewing the world as being either Capitalist or Socialist, without understanding there are many shades of government.

Unrestricted Capitalism is a system of the 'haves' and the 'have nots' which over time means the gap gets wider and the number of 'haves' gets smaller but still grabs a bigger slice of the pie, by allowing money to buy votes for the policies they want. This is Trumps dream. The danger is similar to the French Revolution where the 'have nots' rise up and decapitate the 'haves' if they don't flee.
Social Capitalism restricts the variation by limiting the slice that the 'haves' own by various means but notably by increased, but not crippling, tax rates over certain limits and using this to support the 'have nots' so that they do not slide into absolute poverty. This was GOP view some time ago.
Socialism heavily restricts the 'haves' and uses the 'one person one vote' to ensure those that would be the 'have nots' have a reasonable chance of rising out of the gutter. Obama's view.
At the far end of socialism is Communism where everybody gets the same reward for their labours. Except of course 'somebody' has to have the overall plan and lead the country, and this 'somebody' and his cronies lives in absolute splendor out of sight of the masses. Putin's dream, an outcome not very dissimilar to unrestricted capitalism and with a similar outcome, collapse.

Somewhere between Social Capitalism and mild Socialism lies the 'American Dream'.
Trump is applying the last few cuts that will kill the 'American Dream'.

Another malevolent and personal attack by Sirius B.
Pretty straight forward English. To show otherwise, would you care to explain just who we are if not human? For a retired teacher your choice of words betray you.

Who in in your learned opinion should have that power?

Which humans should Control Centralized Power, AKA Socialism, Communism and other Centralized Power beliefs?

If there is no Centralized Power. There will be no Centralized Destruction of 'The People'.

Which has, and will always, destroy 'The People'.

Hi Mr. "Socialist" awaiting your disagreement, and why, to the following.

Socialism is a belief there are benevolent, ethical and moral humans who will use the power given to them for other peoples good.
Unfortunately, those humans given the power, or those replacing them in the future. Will, to those who truly understand human frailties and history. Use their authority to increase their power and enrich their wealth to the detriment of the people, as has always happened and will always happen.
Until we can ensure that only benevolent, moral and ethical humans will be given the power you wish to give someones evil humans.
We must, to a great extent, limit the power we give to humans.


Why did you not answer my direct question but instead choose to drivel on totally off topic?

Yes Clyde's understanding of things is very limited and fancy a certain person demanding answers when he can't do so himself.

Shame on you continuing to post and refusing to answer my direct question. Do enjoy being intellectually bankrupt?

You're doing a first class job of deflection from the topic. Whatever happened to your "mantra" back on topic?

Once again JUST who is this "Mysterious we" you keep mentioning?
As for not giving centralised power to "humans" are you of the opinion that you along with all other humans are best controlled by a computer?
You really do need to choose your words carefully as all you are doing is giving those who read them, plenty of chuckles. So many, you would do well as a comedian :-)
