I don't agree with all of the proposals but I do really like it. Particularly some of the ways in which some things are presented - What I don't like: I don't particularly care for the highlighting of BLM in particular, that is making things about race but at the same time, I recognize, I understand. It is not all bad and it is bold. There's a lot of things that get politicized and turn into these vehicles or pollotical narratives with framing, which divide people and become the basis for two-party politics. Not hard to see through that at this point. Back to reality - there is much injustice done to poor communities (period); and because of the past racial segregation etc. in a capitalist society, capitalist world...
I forget where/how I found this site but I like it alot: https://www.rosalux.de/en/
As a Polish-German Marxist, Rosa Luxemburg (1871–1919) devoted her life not only to theorizing about implementing Marxist ideals and principles in a socialist revolution in Germany, but to actively helping her compatriots in their dire conditions of exploitation and marginalization by the powerful elites. While the late-nineteenth century assumption (surviving well into the twentieth century) that socialism would inevitably arise through the forward march of history does not appear to carry much weight in our world today, especially not in the West, a discomforting sense of the fragility of our socio-economic, as well as environmental ecosystems exerts its haunting influence on politicians and intellectuals alike. Some on the left side of the political spectrum turn to Rosa Luxemburg for inspiration.
Michal Valco is a professor at the Comenius University of Bratislava. This article is based on his presentation at the conference “Ho Chi Minh and Rosa Luxemburg’s Thoughts on Building a Good Society”, hosted by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation’s Hanoi Office in October 2021.
I wish to explore Luxemburg’s idea that the working class’s path to emancipation must lead through a thorough mental and spiritual development of the masses. Another inspiring thought from Luxemburg revolves around the idea that the success of a socialist revolution entails (among other things) a holistic concept of economic and technological development.
In the end, I think it would be helpful to compare Luxemburg’s ideas that are relevant to building a “good society” to the latest research findings of human, social, and political scientists. As an example, I have chosen one of the most prominent social psychologists and social philosophers today, prof. Jonathan Haidt, based on his book, The Happiness Hypothesis.
Love it. One needs framing of ideas. You need structure in which to hang your hat upon and to develop one's thinking. - Ideas -
- I wouldn't want to start a revolution of mass protest and indignation that results in senseless destruction but... the cultural apathy that pervades and the moral degeneration (this negative programming, this liberal programming ( - I am weak - I am a liberal - ) especially in our present culture/society can make it so, one needs much push to get people to react to them being driven towards a cliff; so to speak or you know, to take moral stands against what is bad and evil. - Myself included. I am not the greatest, I am not unblameworthy, I could have done more in life etc. - We all need the forgiveness and mercy of Allah, less no one would be left alive (- Quran verse).

By Green Science Policy Institute April 15, 2023.
- A recent study reveals that supposedly safe replacement PFAS used in food packaging break down into toxic compounds, contaminating food and the environment. This challenges the PFAS industry’s claims about the safety of polymeric PFAS, suggesting that the best course of action is to eliminate the entire class of PFAS from non-essential uses.
-> We need to make a shift towards a circular economic and "new economics". - Good luck achieving that without real science and a "social science form of politics/democracy"

When will they learn? Waxed paper worked for centuries. Industry wanted convenience and cheap.
Just now, looking at links on the scitechdaily site:
"Forever chemicals, also known as PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances), are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been widely used in various industries due to their unique properties, such as resistance to heat, oil, and water. However, PFAS have been found to have a persistent and toxic effect on the environment and human health.
Exposure to a mixture of chemicals known as PFAS results in changes in biological processes that are linked to a diverse array of diseases.
Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC have discovered that being exposed to a mixture of synthetic chemicals commonly present in the environment affects multiple crucial biological processes in both children and young adults. These processes include the metabolism of fats and amino acids. The disruption of these biological processes increases the likelihood of various diseases, including developmental disorders, cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, and several forms of cancer. "

A computational tool developed by researchers at the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change pinpoints specific counties within the United States that are particularly vulnerable to economic distress resulting from a transition from fossil fuels to low-carbon energy sources.
By combining county-level data on employment in fossil fuel (oil, natural gas, and coal) industries with data on populations below the poverty level, the tool identifies locations with high risks for transition-driven economic hardship. It turns out that many of these high-risk counties are in the south-central U.S., with a heavy concentration in the lower portions of the Mississippi River.
The computational tool, which the researchers call the System for the Triage of Risks from Environmental and Socio-economic Stressors (STRESS) platform, almost instantly displays these risk combinations on an easy-to-read visual map, revealing those counties that stand to gain the most from targeted green jobs retraining programs.
Drawing on data that characterize land, water, and energy systems; biodiversity; demographics; environmental equity; and transportation networks, the STRESS platform enables users to assess multiple, co-evolving, compounding hazards within a U.S. geographical region from the national to the county level. Because of its comprehensiveness and precision, this screening-level visualization tool can pinpoint risk "hot spots" that can be subsequently investigated in greater detail. Decision-makers can then plan targeted interventions to boost resilience to location-specific physical and economic risks.

Sounds great - I would definitely support politically, investments to help the poor and clean up the environment. Is a good thing, no doubt.
"He explained that while PFAS are no longer manufactured in Canada, they are still incorporated in many consumer products and can then leach into the environment. For example, when we apply stain-resistant or repellent sprays/materials, wash PFAS-treated raingear, or use certain foams to put down fires, the chemicals end up in our waterways. Or when we use PFAS-containing cosmetics and sunscreens, the chemicals could find their way into the body.
For most people, exposure is through food and consumer products, but they can also be exposed from drinking water – particularly if they live in areas with contaminated water sources.
Dr. Mohseni, whose research group also focuses on developing water solutions for rural, remote, and Indigenous communities, noted: “Our adsorbing media are particularly beneficial for people living in smaller communities who lack resources to implement the most advanced and expensive solutions that could capture PFAS. These can also be used in the form of decentralized and in-home water treatments.”

Early Islam had much confluence and mixing with the east...I think a lot of this "modern" spirituality could naturally translate to sufi practices", ways and understanding. The concept of "tawheed" is growing in the West. "There is no god but Allah". Ego and mind can think some crazy stuff. Self-control is also mind control/mental.

Good comment, I like:
Countries with parliaments (representative democracy) are in fact oligarchies (few lead). In order to be a true democracy, the decisions of the Parliament should be submitted to the approval of the citizens. The "fatigue" of democracy occurs when there is a big difference between the interests of those elected and the voters, so people lose confidence in the way society function. As a result, the poor and desperate citizens will vote with whoever promises them a lifeline, i.e. the populists or demagogues. The democratic aspect is a side effect in societies where economies have a strong competitive aspect, where the interests of those who hold economic power in
