To me, the fundamental issue has to do with concentration of power in too few hands, causing the concomitant concentration of wealth in too few hands. These two things are inseparable (the Occupy movement has it only half right). The answer to both is to correctly address the first, and this is done by finding a way to redistribute power back to the people. This had been marvelously done with the US Constitution, with the idea of federation of states being truly realized and exercised. Since Lincoln’s war we have consolidation of power in the District of Criminals, and increasingly in the Executive Branch. I see cantons at every level of government, first locally, to be the correct answer to how we redistribute power away from special interests and the governments they control, back to the People.
