People's March for Climate control, a march to keep the average
temperature of the planet from going 2 degrees Celsius above the 1960
temperature will be a successful march, in the sense of many people
taking to the streets to influence their political
representatives to pass laws that will limit the amount of energy in
the atmosphere. But, the real question is, "Will the
representatives pass the laws?" In other words, will the will of
the people become the will of our representatives?
is a hypothetical question. I believe the threat to the planet and
all of life on the planet is real, immediate, and perhaps, already
inevitable. But I think that representatives of law making bodies are
influenced by immediate, what you can see for yourself, problems.
Climate change now has consequences that are easily easily seen. The
representatives, after our communal request, will probably pass the
laws to lower the energy content of the atmosphere, by reducing the
amount of greenhouse gasses pumped into the atmosphere or physically
or chemically removing them from the atmosphere. Probably....
there is no certainty that the representatives, from all the nations,
will try to get such laws passed, let alone succeed in getting them
passed. The U.N. is a debate society. Its resolutions are not
binding on anyone. Our Congress is a 1% bought and paid for group of
$200,000 employees of the people who make ten times that when they
leave office as payment from the 1%. See ex-Representative Cantor's
current salary. Will the representatives save the world and not take
advantage of getting tens times their salary? I think it's doubtful.
But a majority of informed and insightful representatives can
Association for the Advancement of Actual Democracy is adamant in
trying to remove the "CAN" from that statement. Our wishes,
plainly expressed to the Representatives, can be made into law. But
instead of that uncertainty, that 'CAN

expressed by the people but it must be VOTED ON BY THE PEOPLE.
should no longer be begging our representatives to set their personal
self-interest aside in favor of the 'greater good', the will of the
people. Today that will, when frustrated, leads to us taking to the
streets to show our common desire for the 538 law-makers of our
nation to decide in our favor, as we see it, after long and
considered debate, which has been ignored or frustrated by
'Political' means. Our wishes, our conclusions, our needs and hopes,
must be expressed, not in just words, but in VOTES THAT COUNT. We the
People are responsible for the laws and should make them ourselves.
Not being able to do that today has led us to the point of having to
beg our representatives to save our civilization from a real problem
that can, and if ignored will, destroy all life on this planet. We
should never again permit such a scenario to transpire. We must Amend
the Constitution so the people vote directly for their laws, for
their Chief Executives who execute and administer the laws, and for
their Judges who interpret the laws. Nothing else is freedom. Nothing
else is political equality. Nothing else is DEMOCRACY.
the march the politically active members of the march, the organizers
of the march, all who supported the march, financially,
philosophically, and with their presence in the street, have one more
cause to work for, the cause of removing the need to ever go to the
streets again to express their common will, but instead, go directly
to debating, analyzing, and then voting on the laws that they believe
are required. See http://www.assosactualdemocracy.com,
