The Johnnies' Demands
(i) School courses in Gnostic philosophy and history. No, church and state should be separate.
(ii) Total income equalisation. Impossible in a market economy where commodities, including labour power, are sold at their value and trained labour power has a higher value.
(iii) The phasing out of materialism, hypocrisy and injustice. This cannot be legislated.
(iv) World peace and universal disarmament. This cannot be effected by any single government - but the present government could propose an international conference with these objectives.
(v) End the occupation of formerly hostile countries and spend the money on social uplift at home. Why not also spend it on social uplift in the formerly occupied countries?
(vi) Amnesty for rioters. To comment on this, we would need to know more about the circumstances of the riots.
