The first thing everyone must understand is humanity cannot endure more conflict.  Therefore we must find a quick and amicable solution which will meet the demands of everyone.

This must allow lives, families and society to continue without further hardship and allow everyone to maintain there own sense of dignity.

And it is very easy to do based on Occam's razor, also known as the Keep it Simple Sweetheart (KISS) process.

All people who watch and follow politics in democracies know this.   Their representative is elected by a secret ballot by those who live in the region they will represent.  They also must know that their elected representative cannot represent their wishes honestly.   This is due to the implementation of the public vote in all legislative houses.

I completely trust, and so should all of mankind, that at least 70% of people will always do the right thing.

The reason the wrong thing is done most the time is because those who we elect to represent us do not get to represent our wishes by a secret ballot.

And when voting is open and public (in Canada the Parliamentarians are obligated to stand and call out their vote) they can be bribed with all sorts of rewards and if they do not do as they are told they can be punished.

It might take a generation to change the fortunes of everyone but with this one simple action, the secret ballot, we could turn the world around. 

This is a three step process.   First it must be demanded, second it must be made secure and monitored and third it must be properly represented and done immediately.

1) Everyone stay on the streets and demand the governments of the world institute an incorruptible secret ballot for every legislative house, at every level, in every nation.

2) Demand a paper ballot counted by people and watched by representatives of all sides to ensure the count is fair and accurate.   No electronic programmable voting machines.

3) Demand all new elections with smaller areas for representation such that the people, the citizenry, can have a chance to get to know the representatives.    In some cases this might require many more electoral areas.
