Democratic Political Party
Robley E. George, Director

The purpose of this Democratic Socioeconomic Platform is to present a new, fundamentally just, democratic and systemically consistent political platform capable of democratically enhancing the General Welfare of All Citizens of a Democratic Society.
Expressed in other terms, the purpose is to indicate how Socioeconomic Democracy can and will resolve or significantly reduce a wide variety of already-acknowledged, serious, costly yet unnecessary societal problems -- and do so simultaneously, a natural gift/property of a successful systemic solution.
These problems include (but are by no means limited to) those familiar ones involving: automation, computerization and robotization; budget deficits and national debts; bureaucracy; maltreatment of children; crime and punishment; development, sustainable or otherwise; ecology, environment, resources and pollution; education; the elderly; the feminine majority; inflation; international conflict; intranational conflict; involuntary employment; involuntary unemployment; labor strife and strikes; sick medical and health care; military metamorphosis; natural disasters; pay justice; planned obsolescence; political participation; poverty; racism; sexism; untamed technology; and the General Welfare.
A further gift/property of Socioeconomic Democracy is that it will immensely increase facilitation of the realization of many of the other fundamental changes that are necessary and must and will be made by and for human survival, sustainability, grateful satisfaction and spiritual/humanistic development.
