Socialism is a political ideology that advocates for the collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods.

Socialists argue that the distribution of wealth and power in a society should be controlled by the whole community rather than by individuals or private corporations.

The roots of socialism as a political ideology can be traced back to the French Revolution in the late 18th century, but it was not until the 19th century that it…  Read more

If society's traditions conflict with modern values, should they be preserved or reevaluated?

 @9H6DWBKfrom Ontario answered…7mos7MO

Each persons culture is different and unique and people need to follow their own rules and expectations for their beliefs and culture. It’s important to respect that, because no one wants to be humiliated for doing what they are supposed to do.

How would you redesign the electoral system to better reflect the diversity of today's society?

 @9JRLDTVLiberal from Ontario answered…4mos4MO

In my opinion, redesigning the electoral system to better reflect the diversity of today's society is crucial for ensuring a more inclusive and representative democracy. One potential approach could be implementing a proportional representation system, which would allow for a more accurate allocation of seats based on the percentage of votes received by each political party. This would help ensure that minority voices are adequately represented in government.

Additionally, I believe that ranked-choice voting could be beneficial, as it encourages candidates to appeal to a broader range of…  Read more
