Direct Democracy proposal for Education
Amendments to the History curriculum to recognise that foreign lands were conquered and not 'discovered'
Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose that the National History Curriculum be amended to show how 'discovered' lands were actually already inhabited by indigenous civilisations.
In continuing to teach our children the lie that Christopher Columbus 'discovered' America [for example], we prevent our children from being able to see and acknowledge the mistakes of our past. We also encourage a false perception that we are 'whiter than white' and therefore, have nothing to address with regards to our place and the effects of our actions in the world.
"Imagine... you're an American Indian, you're on your land, foreigners arrive on boats then persecute, kill and exile you, then name your land the Land of the Free - after telling the world that your land was 'discovered' by them!" - Alex Romane [PA founder]
This philosophy was played out in the psyche of the nation during the Falklands Conflict [another land that we 'discovered' that happened to be part of Argentina before we stole it from them years before our reassertion of 'ownership' in 1981].
Voting for direct democracy outside a general election
It is up to us, the people [not the politicians] to use the power that we have always had, to choose to implement direct democracy as soon as possible.
This is not a protest campaign.
In accordance with Magna Carta Article 61 and with UN UDHR Article 21 and with all democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK is signed-up to], the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog is a UN-sanctioned and legally recognised voting format for UK reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
Vote legitimately for a peaceful and structured UK reform to direct democracy now simply by following the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog and when numbers reach a point of critical mass, we'll do the rest.
The People's Administration's constitution for reform to direct democracy and our voting protocols for implementing direct democracy have both been accepted by the UK Electoral Commission and the UN as legitimate. In a general election, the People's Administration DOES NOT have to field candidates to secure your vote on the ballot paper. Outside a general election, you can vote for a legitimate reform to direct democracy now by following @self_rule
