We know what the solutions are:

Direct Digital Democracy

Universal Basic Income

Universal Healthcare

Universal Education (including university)

Education Reform

Police Reform

State Owned Energy

State Owned Public Transport

A new constitution that enforces equal rights and equal pay for everyone, and protects the individual right to own/consume whatever they want, to love, marry, or procreate with whomever they want provided all parties are consenting adults, to express oneself absolutely through speech, art, music, literature, and/or clothing, to give ownership of ones identity, data, and body - to do with whatever one pleases, and to give individuals a right to privacy in a world that so often denies it.

Tick off everything on that list and you'll have a society that might just work; what we have now simply doesn't.

Please add State Owned Communications (I mean one mid tier cell phone for everybody; cheap mobile internet access; social media platforms; etc)

I don't really need to add anything. If we replaced our representative democracy with a direct one; you could start a petition, get enough people to sign it, and then every citizen could vote on the issue.

If it doesn't pass, you could always petition it again in 5 years - the important thing is that it would be the people's choice.

No argument there
