Value clarification

September 30, 2009

The Chinese emissary to  the UK challenged Hard-Talk interviewer when asked, “When are you going to have Democracy in China?” The emissary was right, Hard-Talk was wrong. Here is the Value Clarification:

You can have true democracy with anything from a ONE PARTY system like in China to a THIRTY PARTY system like in Israel. The essence of Democracy is not the number of political parties competing for your vote. The essence of Democracy is a FREE ELECTION.

It is more democratic to have a one party system where you vote for local competing delegates than to have a multiparty system where you vote for a party list of candidates.

Did the president lie?

September 10, 2009

Did the president lie?

An un-enforced law is practically the same as no law at all, e.g., president Obama, on Wednesday, 9th of September, 2009, in a speech to Congress said that in the wording of the new medical coverage law, it does not cover illegal aliens. He was shouted “You lied” by republican congressman Wilson from South Carolina, who later appologized to the president.

 

What is the truth?

 

The truth is that illegal aliens who would apply for medical treatment will not be denied it because there are no mechanisms established by the new law as to how to prevent illegal aliens from getting the coverage. Thus, technically, the president did not lie, but practically he did so unknowingly.
