What is Metapolitik?

Metapolitik is a new approach to socio-political / socio-economic discourse and dialectic consensus-building, based on the three pillars of sustainability:

  1. Economic

  2. Environmental

  3. Social

The philosophical and analytic framework of sustainability draws on and connects with many different disciplines and fields. In recent years, an area that has come to be called sustainability science has emerged. Sustainability science tends to be problem-driven and oriented towards guiding decision-making and an inclusive, trans-disciplinary approach to the use of scientific data. Metapolitik applies this three-pillar model of sustainability to the concept of 'metapolitics'.




By sheer coincidence, these happen to correspond roughly to the three competing political camps and their corresponding views regarding society:

  1. Conservative / Republican (Economic)

  2. Progressive / Green (Environmental)

  3. Liberal / Democrat (Social)




Again, by sheer coincidence, this gives us three symbolic colors that just happen to correspond roughly to the three colors that are visible to the human eye:

  1. Red (#FF0000)

  2. Green (#00FF00)

  3. Blue (#0000FF)




If we visualize these colors by arranging them in a common Venn diagram, we see that there are three additional colors that are generated which correspond roughly to various non-partisan and independent schools of political thought (libertarians, Tea Party, etc.) as well as to various states of socio-political imbalance (fascism / corporatism etc.).

Each of these secondary categories constitute areas of shared-interest between the two parties that they are derived-from, as well as a polar opposition to whatever camp that they are 180 degrees away from. This gives us a complete ontological framework for discussing social, economic and environmental ideas and how they relate to one another in our social fabric.

  1. Cyan (Labor / Worker's Rights)

  2. Magenta (Neo-Feudal / Wealth & Privilege)

  3. Yellow (Libertarian / Individual Rights)

I'm glad I made your day. I have one more site for you to visit. It is why I joined OWS. Please tell me what you think.

Wow... That's a lot of nested links to pages containing nested links to more pages. Maybe you should try streamlining your message and only linking when appropriate or pertinent to the thread.

I am somewhat guilty of this as well, but I try to keep it to a minimum.

The information is necessary. It's for those who will join the KTC. But you got the just of it. Two companies that have committed unforgivable crimes. :(

Seems like they are just two on a long, long, list of offenders.

But hey, thanks for bringing them to our attention.

ADD-hominim attacks wont help you.

Communism is provin wrong and never works. You want to take away freedom and replace with a dictater. It will never happen.

How can I possibly argue with such a well formulated and concisely articulated counterpoise?

Your erudition and keen insight simply radiate from every well-chosen word that gushes forth from the fountain of glory that is your intellect. Let me humbly bathe in the radiant brilliance of your mercurial logic and drink deeply from the ever running cup that is the embodiment of illumination and insight.
