Discussion of a new political view, sillyism

Postby The Derpy Democratic Republic Of Herp » Wed Nov 16, 2016 4:17 pm

Ok, so this is something I just thought up a new ideology for people sick of the left and right always bickering at each other: sillyism.

What is Sillyism: Sillyism is just going with the flow, putting the happiness of everyone before all else. It means that political parties would be real parties, elections would no longer be about who is the least worst candidate but who can make you the most happy.

I would mean no bitterness but sweetness. It would let anyone do or be anything, and It would add democracy to the workplace via letting anyone directly voting for or against a policy that would affect the economy or business.

Debates could be solved via shooting each other with water guns.


That is what sillyism is about.

So, this new view could change the world, I would like to hear peoples thoughts on it.

An interesting (if, at times, disputable) mishmash of ideas. It's getting late here in Britannia, so I'll (hopefully) give out deeper thoughts tomorrow.

Or hedonism, depending on how you view it. Well, one of those two, plus ultra-direct democracy and water pistols...

I say we promote higher education by adding more stories to all schools, and we end misandry in the work force by allowing men to become wet nurses.

This is a worldwide movement that will make the world silly again.

Moar yuuge then just the UK.

We will buld a cake and make Antarctica pay for it.

We will strip away the water gun laws that hold back so many.
We will make cannons a public transportation option.

Also, unicorns will be real.
