Learn about three powerful proposals that could make Congress less violent!
Is Congress violent? Of course, it is! Nearly everything it does makes peaceful people do things they don’t want to do, on pain of fine, imprisonment, or death. Those are acts of aggression by any definition. So…
Would knowing about the Zero Aggression Principle help Congress change its ways? Perhaps at the margins. But mostly no, because nearly all members of Congress have the strange belief that voting can turn wrong into right. What can be done about this?
The Zero Aggression Project is trying to share the Zero Aggression PRINCIPLE with as many people as possible. After all, citizens are more likely to get the point long before the politicians do.
We think change can happen from the bottom up because politicians are followers, not leaders.
But bottom-up change takes time. So can anything be done to make Congress less violent in the meantime?
Perhaps you’ve heard of the three bills created by Downsize DC…
- The Read the Bills Act
- The One Subject at a Time Act
- The Write the Laws Act
All three of these bills have been introduced in Congress multiple times, most recently by Senator Rand Paul. Each of these bills would do profound things to limit congressional violence, setting the stage to move American politics in a more zero-aggression direction.
You can learn about these bills, what they would accomplish, why congress would have to obey them, and a strategy for passing them (much sooner than we can get Congress to adopt Zero Aggression), Please check out the latest episode of Gracearchy with Jim Babka!
