Forum Post: Is panarchy a viable option for US?

The polticial and class divisions in this country seem more pronounced than ever with no resolutions on the horizon.

The political extremes reflect the growing class division; those who support the status quo maintain no real class divisions exist; that the people trapped in the lowest confines of the economy are basically there of their own choosing and deserve no support from the rest of the hard-working population.

On the other hand many of us believe that many of the social problems in our society including the terrible poverty are a result of a widening gap between the super rich and the working class. We tend toward a vision of collective effort, wealth redistribution, and horizontal government to achieve a classless society, in which all, who are willing, live decently with no great extremes in accumulated wealth.

Since so many of those who support the status quo believe that we, their opponents, should either leave this country or some such other ridiculous option, perhaps a panarchistic system would work, in which each person would make a choice under which system to live. The country would have two separate but equal governments.

Once a person chose under which government to live, he or she could not change systems without the acceptance of both sides. In this way each governing body would handle miscreants and malingerers independently.

Such a system sounds nearly impossible to maintain but considering the apparently irreconcilable divisions in our system, it may be a considered option.

Hmm; maybe the South will volunteer to secede again; this time we don't have to stop them. :)

They'd have to take a lot of the Midwest, too.
