I must confess, I am skeptical of the effectiveness and genuine positive progressiveness of our general political systems.
How can a political system ever work, when winning an election is more important than running the country?
Our political systems are no longer working or possibly have never worked.
Is there any evidence that the above statement is true?
Yes, just look around you, if world politics would have worked, we would live in peace, without poverty and with purpose, not only with technical evolution, but also with human evolution.
The hostility and absolute uselessness of political discourse is depressive and offensive, and it inflicts all levels of society with negative messages and behavioural models.
How can we ever have a constructive political system while major parties main objective is to win and to rubbish the other party?
Politicians were meant to be role models for our young generation; now, the opposite seems to be true.
It’s probably too ambitious to attempt to change a political system. For starters, most politician would reject it, after all it may cost them their job, or they may find it too boring, because they can’t play their political games anymore.
Maybe there could be a "Hypothetical Political Party", and it could be called "Holistic Democratic Party", maybe that way one can find out what type of ideas are feasible and what could be changed.
Wouldn't it be funny if a hypothetical political party would get more votes than a real one .. ?

Possible questions to find answers to:
Is it possible to have a system that is not focused on winning, but is focused on creating synergy and a grand plan of what is best for the country?
How and for what would we vote?
Would we vote for specific policies rather than a political party?
If a political party achieves to win an election with roughly 50% of the votes in their favour, do they really have a mandate to govern?
Is the role of the opposition to “oppose” everything, just to make sure the ruling party is not getting their way?
You tell me ….. in the meantime, I will continue thinking out loud ..
.. the next article will show the difference between a holistic political party and a conventional ideology based party.
