How do you fix a government through passive resistance in the modern age? I think this is a question that has been pondered for decades, but with this crazy Administrations of Trump and pulling back the veil of how corrupt the GOP has been since the 1980’s, there is a need to think of a plan “B”.
TLDR: Form a Blue State Coalition of SOE Banks to put Federal Withholdings into escrow when a corrupt Federal Government goes against the majority of it’s people.
Every State in the Union has the right and plenary authority to own State Owned Enterprise and assets. One such enterprise in this case is a banking system, California almost passed CA SB930 to create an online Bank for Cannabis. If a coalition of Blue States joined to create a business licensing and banking system of this nature, they could force a system that puts Federal Withholdings into escrow accounts if a Federal government, be it a President, judge, or politician steps one toe out of line and is corrupt, or in the pockets of Wall Street. It would mimic Anonymous LLC’s and Shell Companies today so that the business is agent to the State to force the Federal Withholdings pass thru.
Ideally, this Government is beyond repair, and the ping pong match is guaranteed to not fix Climate Change in the next ten years, which is a global threat at this point. Is there any other option, is trying to voting against Trump going to work with toxic GOP at the helm Stonewalling anything and everything? I don’t see violence happening in our “Netflix and Chill” society where this is how Authoritarian plutocracy are designed to operate: the working class is given just enough to live, yet with no upward mobility.
If and when Trump runs his campaign as the Mueller report details, with GOP support to suppress voters, judges to nullify elections similar to Bush and Gore, or with Russia and Saudi Arabia hacking the election, what is our plan “B” suppose to be? Violence won’t happen, not when the majority of people are just trying survive the hamster wheel of income inequality and a rigged economy.
Ideally, Gandhi used passive resistance against the British where the PR and money spent was so damaging to England they had to abandon their imperialism. I see that here with Blue State unifying as well under a movement to empower it’s labor and people against this “Cold Civil War” the GOP. It would allow labor to be a form of protest and with States like California or New York stepping up to the plate could stifle a corrupt Government in less than month in a peaceful and safe way.
When the American Revolution started it was a small monitory of people based mainly on an entanglement of economic and religion issue that spurred it on (there are a lot of parallels we have today, income inequality, Christian Zealots, Tyranny). In this case it’s safe to say that the majority of the country is feeling this Government is running against the needs of it’s citizenry and needs a system to be a check against the bad faith of a Presidents, judges, or politicians that gets voted or appointed in, yet panders to Wall Street or foreign influence.
