Trust and government

A government system can only act efficiently and bring about great change if it enjoys the confidence of the population.

Great changes in China. Since decades in most cities, gasoline scooters are no longer eligible. Then the rapid expansion of high-speed rail lines. A few years ago the rapid change to a cashless society. The conversion of the auto industry to the electric car industry. The energy transition.

All this is possible because the government, the government system has the full confidence of the population. For example, AliPay and WeChat practically have a monopoly on cashless payments. No problem for a Chinese who trusts the people's dictatorship: "If such a monopolist makes nonsense, such as introducing high transfer fees, then the government will be on our side and knock him hard on the fingers." The state is there for us, the state is on our side.

For many decades, the standard of living in China has been rising steadily. Thus, the population's confidence in government and government system has grown steadily.

  Sustained loss of trust

Since 1980, the standard of living of the poorer sections of the population in the USA has been falling. Systematically, the US population was split into 2 political camps. The one side commented on the government work of the other side basically only with polemics and hate. A climate of greatest distrust against the government. In the greed for power, the two major US parties have made the country virtually ungovernable.

Nothing of what the Chinese government has achieved in the past two decades is possible for the US government. Expansion of high-speed railways? That would lead to an immediate protest storm against wasting tax revenues and violating the free market economy. Quotas for electric cars? California failed with the CCAA - California Clean Air Act. To celebrate the victory over the CCAA, GM then took away all EV1 electric cars from all lessees and scrapped them.

If there is a cartel or monopoly in the US where it exploits financially and harms citizens, then the US citizen is sure the government will be on the side of the cartel. This creates a society of mistrust and conspiracy theories.

Too many illogical conflicting conspiracy theories, too much stress with mistrust against the government, all the ideas of what the government might do to the people soon, then leads to the final stage of conspiracy theorists: the flat Earther.

Politics - political targets of PEGE Politics - political targets of PEGE
Nonpolitical, pragmatic, on the other side of ideologies counts in our politic only one target: A long time lasting civilization able to develop further on a stable base.

Long-term planning and stability have to be the guiding rules of politics. A philosophy based on the mathematic branch of games theory.

Living standard
What is living standard? How is living standard correctly measured? Is it possible, that our living standard declines drastic, while uncorrect numbers want to make us belive it's like paradise?

Taxes tax politics
The consequences of the tax politic for humans and environment. The politicians claim to fight for humans and the environment, but the tax politics shows the exact opposit.

Energy politic
Decades of wrong energy politic. Instead of more living standard with less energy usage, partial the contrary was reached. A result of the wrong tax politic.

  2017 politics

Unfortunately, no problem solving skills are apparent to most politicians. On the contrary, the make problem worse skills are overwhelming

Black Friday: US attack on Syria
Is it possible to make a professing climatic change denier reason? No, Donald Trump shows that irresponsible handling of facts is a standard for him.

The 5th term of George W. Bush
Sometime in 2009, I wondered where is the difference between Barack Obama and George W. Bush. On April 7, 2017: Where is the difference between George W. Bush and Donald Trump?

Donald Trump's speech to the United Nations
What does dictator rocket man worry about the total destruction of North Korea? Nothing, because if he were concerned about the population, he would have already resigned.

US military budget US$ 700 billion
What could begin with totally superfluous US$ 600 billion military expenditures reasonable? This shows what a crime against humanity this budget is.

STRATAGEM: a suppressive game
As unfortunately not to be expected otherwise, a game to completely ignore all of today's opportunities to advance a developing country. A training in wrong concepts.

          Trust and government: A government system can only act efficiently and bring about great change if it enjoys the confidence of the population.
