We know very well the complexity of political representation in Democracy but the actual systems don´t answer to the political values of Persons: Liberty and her dear friend Responsibility! We must change the system of representation, more or less easily manipulated by the power of few (oligarchies) with a deeply division of powers. So we must create a strong base of participation of Persons before, during and after elections for anarchists don´t have reason: «the vote it´s the arm of People. Don´t vote for You don´t lost your arm» Before elections and during elections many democracies in the World don´t have primaries (freedom of choice candidates to representatives and programs), open lists (freedom of choice representatives), clear duties by clear programs voted by themes, one vote equal to all votes (national electoral circles) et cetera After elections representatives have to much power without control, without a strong responsibility, situation that we must change (intercalary evaluation of duties by Persons that implicate potential lost of representation if not respect promises, referendum for important changes ex post et cetera) We have more and more strong Persons with strong personalities that can participate in a Deeply Democracy and innovated means for participation, but oligarchies don´t like changes because implicate more complexity in it hard work of manipulation (with the control of media, education et cetera). So we must create a more and more complex system of representation to turn more and more complex oligarchies take the control of the power of Persons to a better World included to oligarchies :-). Trump and Brexit are good examples: the simplification of the systems create a strong and intolerable ambiguity; Trump was elected by a minority, and many Persons that voted in him, probably don´t agree with many decisions of him horrible Administration of USA; what was the real support of Brexit? A complex theme don´t have a complex referendum… Populism is a manifestation of a not Deeply Democracy… We Socialists and Democrats must contribute to great chances that turn Democracy more strong and protected of the strong threats that appear all days in all World, with tyranies and oligarchies installed in democracies! As the great Portuguese poete Luís Vaz de Camões said in XVI Century after Jesus Christ: «Mudam-se os tempos, mudam-se as vontades, Muda-se o ser, muda-se a confiança: Todo o mundo é composto de mudança, Tomando sempre novas qualidades.» And International Hymn said: «(…) No more rights without their duties, no more duties without their rights (…)» Love and Liberty will prevail over tyranny!

I am a male swedish highscool teacher, 35years of age, diagnosed with asperger’s syndrome and adhd as an adult. Since I has chose to be open about my diagnosis to reduce predujice and sometimes get support from society I have been subjected to discrimination numerous times from among others: Swedish authorities, Swedish schools and Swedish counties. The treatment of people with these conditions is a true modern human rights disaster! On the 1st of may 2017 for the first time In my life, I therefore chose to march with a sign saying “equal rights despite ADHD, Asperger’s” to press the importance of these issues! I marched together with my dear comrades in the beautiful and sunny city of Borås in Sweden! Shortly after the march, I showed papers from Swedish Social Security Authorities denying me a disability equal to 25% reduction of full time working ability. Authorities mock me for having Asperger’s syndrome and consider that the right job for me would be something within my areas of interests, where I have little or no contact with people, and all days are predictable and free of stress! Please let met get back to this pressing and very important issue once again when I have time! By this post I hope to inspire other young social democats around in Europe to work for human rights for people who have conditions like Asperger’s, ADHD and so son. I also hope to inspire other grassroot politicians like me who also might have neuropsyhicatric conditions like ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, Dyslexia, Tourettes syndrome and so on to come foward and help in the struggle for equal rights!
