The ideal government structure

We are in 2016, everything is changing fast from technology to individual rights …

Many countries around the world are trying to include more and more women in government, but still government compositions are still far from being ideal.

Here, i will try to list how governments should be composed:

1- Gender Equality: Half any country population is made up of females, so there’s absolutely no reason whatsoever to not offer equal number of seats to women.
Let’s be honest, politicians are not really selected according to their specific skills, so women and men are both equally qualified to serve their populations.

2- Minority Representation: The government should be representative of the people, if there’s 10% of the population that belong to a specific ethnicity, then they should have 10% of the politicians, and they should choose their own politicians.

3- Field of competence: Each one of the civil servants and politicians representatives should work in the domain that he/she is competent at. let’s see some examples:
Minister = secretary of state = member of government in-charge of a department.

so Minister of health, should be someone who have worked long in the health sector: doctors etc …
Minister of education, should be a teacher, professor …Interior Minister, should have worked in police or secret services …
Foreign Minister, should be someone that have lived in more than 1 country …

Reverse Human Migration

This blog post belong to my contrarian thinking series …

Humanity have successfully built a system to motivate individuals to work hard, and that’s good, except the majority of the human population have fell victim to this system, and this system is based on money and land ownership.
Earth is a planet that belong to all it’s creatures, no one creature can claim ownership of a specific part or terrain, from this perspective all states/countries and land ownership are fictitious.

This land have existed for millions of years, and it is capitalistic absurdity to even imagine that a person or a group of people have ownership on a land, region or country.

We are just a bunch of evolved monkeys that have migrated throughout the world and claimed ownership on the lands we inhabited, then some of the smarter ones appointed themselves kings, or declared themselves owner of the lands …

Then the next generation of smart monkeys, printed papers and convinced us to use them for trade, and the newest generation of smart monkeys realized they do not even need to print money, and are creating fortunes through the bank systems.

Have you noticed anything wrong with this picture? it’s all fictitious…

Let’s get back to the migration topic:

Past migrations / Early migrations:

The modern man originated from Africa, he migrated throughout the world in search for better environments, the modern man encountered a lot of humanoids, they mixed together and sometimes competed and fought.

below map shows the migration of the homo sapiens sapiens – or modern man

Another Early migration that took place is actually a reverse migration: when Eurasian farmers migrated to Africa 3,000 years ago –article

Hundreds of migrations have taken place since then, human migrations were initiated due to different reasons.

Current migration:

Current migration has some similar causes like the previous ones, mainly wars, and the search for a better life.
And, thanks to fast spread of information, these days migrations are often more polemic…
for example immigration to Europe , Syrian Refugees problem


Reverse migration:

Logically, the human should be searching for a better life, and that does not mean only better salary, but also means a better climate, and a less stressful nature, from this perspective you would understand why most of Europe’s Rich people go to live in Spain and the French riviera, while most of the US rich establish home in Florida, California and co …
What i find strange though is that very few people -not rich- decide to go live in countries where the weather conditions are favorable, especially when these people go to retirement.

It might not make sense for a family with kids to leave a rich European country to establish home in a poor African country, there are usually a lot lacking compared to the Western standard of life.
But it would make a lot of sense for an early 40’s or late 40’s couple to do that, i mean the money they have would be more than enough to live the rest of their lives in many African countries, or even to launch a profitable business, but there are some problems …

Establishing home in Africa is not that easy, as a white person you are immediately assumed to be rich, and probably you are, compared to the local standards, and that is an invitation for trouble, meaning, being mugged, robbed or even killed by thugs or criminals.
This was the case for example for many westerners and also for Lebanese communities in some African countries, where political events led to chaos and led to attacks on the Lebanese businesses and communities 1 2
So the problems are thugs and criminals -criminals are everywhere in the world- , and sometimes political instability.

But the fact that there are Lebanese communities and more recently Chinese communities, should be an indicator that reverse migration is a viable option.

How to implement Reverse migration:

If the reverse migration becomes a trend, sooner or later we might see a reaction from the local population, wherever the local population is … People feel threatened of losing their jobs or competition stealing their clients …
The best way to implement and regulate reverse immigration is through bipartisan agreements,
for example there are a 400.000 Moroccan in France, thus the Moroccans should allow at least 400.000 French in Morocco … and so on …
This way, local populations know that the foreigners are here in an equal number as their nationals in the foreigners country, that would be fair and reasonable.

Side effect: that would reduce racial tensions between communities, as when an immigrant goes to a country, he is allowing a foreigner to go to his country, which is a fair trade…
