The TLP Platform:
These are the things that we, the Thermodynamic Law Party believe in and hope to accomplish:
Governance Obeys The Laws Of Thermodynamics: All things of the Universe obey the Laws of Thermodynamics, why would we think that our government should be any different. By applying scientific, Thermodynamic thinking to the problems that face our nation, we will be able to come up with proven solutions that the apologists for the status quo would never have dreamed possible. A full awareness of the nature of Entropy, the Universe's natural movement to disorder and chaos, as stated in the Second Law of Thermodynamics, will give us insight into the course of societal decay and show us how to maximize our political energies to offset its effects. By using a Thermodynamics-orientated, "Make Sense" approach to government, we will be able to offer policies that are in harmony with the Universe thereby insuring a problem-free government.
Technology Is Our Friend But Not Our Master: It is clear that the new century will see the full blossoming of the Information Age that began in earnest with the creation of the first analog computer and the laying of the first trans-atlantic telegraph cable in the Nineteenth century. This age will depend on technology more so than ever before. When used for good, this technology has the ability to expand human potential. We feel that Information Age technology should be used in government as a tool, but that we should never let it dictate how we live. Like our view of politicians, we feel technology should serve the people, not the other way around. By using the new means of communication that this technology allows us, government can be made to be more responsive to the needs of the people. We think this will take various forms including: electronic town meetings, e-voting replacing antiquated "butterfly" ballot systems, and real-time feedback of policy effects. Computer modeling, using the Laws of Thermodynamics, should also be employed as a tool to help those in government to understand the effects of their actions.
Better Standards Make Better Living: In our society increasingly dependent on scientific and technological knowledge, measurement is important. As William Thomson once said:
"If you can not measure it, you can not improve it."
We feel that in order to fully realize the society-improving potential of Twenty-First Century technology, as well as the Thermodynamic principles that underlie all technology, we must rid ourselves of old, clunky systems of measurement and replace them with "Make Sense" ones. Therefore, Thermocrats wholeheartedly support the Metric movement, and related advances in quantification technology. By fully switching to the Metric System (SI), we will not only benefit by the ease of use that a base-ten system will give us, but we will be bringing ourselves into sync with the rest of the industrialized world which has already embraced it. We also support the International Metric Time Initiative adopted at the Bern Summit, and will work to convert our nation's clocks to Metric Time. Furthermore, we support the switch to the SI Kelvin temperature scale. The Kelvin scale will give us absolute measurements, instead of the relative ones of Fahrenheit and Celsius, and its use will be enforced on TV weather reports via the FCC and bank clocks via the FDIC.
Return To Traditional Values: Although we look forward to the future, we also look back to our past. The traditional values that our nation was founded on need to be strengthened, and in some cases restored, if we wish to continue being the nation that the World looks to for inspiration. This can be accomplished by applying the Entropic Principles that Thermodynamics teaches us. As can be seen by using the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the root cause of the decay in our values and the breakdown in the American Family is Entropy. By using Thermodynamic-orientated solutions, we will be able to cause a local decrease of Entropy in American values by creating a larger Entropic increase elsewhere, such as in organized crime or racism.
Educational Reform: The decay in our nation's schools is also rooted in the Second Law. By supporting proven concepts and innovations, such as school vouchers, national testing standards, Kelvinian Meditation, and Head Start, we will be able to cause local decreases in Entropy in our education system. An emphasis should be placed on science, technology, and communication related instruction to give our children the tools they'll need for the Information Age. Equal time should be given in geology classes to alternate, Thermodynamic theories of the age of the Earth, instead of forcing a single theory on our students based on shaky radiometric assumptions.
Economic Growth The Thermodynamic Way: By supporting free trade over protectionistic policies, we will insure that our economy is an open system, thereby allowing Entropic decreases under the Second Law. According to the First Law, wealth is neither created nor destroyed, it only changes forms. However, this does not mean the we can't gather more wealth since much of our nation's wealth is untapped, in the unrealized potential of our people's talents. To unlock this potential, we will form a scientific task-force that will find ways of decreasing people's personal Entropy using proven self-realization technology such as Kelvinian Meditation. This wealth source, although limited under the First Law, is vast and will last us for many millennia to come.
Defense Through Non-Entropy: The "Make Sense" approach to national defense is a pro-active one. By using Thermodynamic principles we can safeguard against negative foreign forces. We will do this by decreasing the nation's Entropy through extensive use of Kelvinian Meditation, tapping into the natural reservoir of non-Entropic energy that only KM can let loose. By doing so, the Entropic forces that threaten us from without will be pushed back, much like how adding fuel to a fire pushes back the cold. This is known as the Kelvinic Effect, and has been scientifically proven effective. We can accomplish this goal as part of our larger counter-Entropic policy. With public school children and government workers all practicing KM, Entropy will decrease quickly. Furthermore, as an extra defensive measure, special military troops will be trained in more advanced forms of Thermodynamics and KM. This will not only be easy to implement but will also save money, since less will need to be spent on weapons. With only 3% of the military strategically deployed and practicing Kelvinic Levitation, the influx of non-Entropic universal energy will be enough to create an impenetrable Thermodynamic barrier that will repel missiles, invaders and terrorists alike.
Energy Policies That Make Sense: Our current policies regarding energy consumption and supply are myopic. We propose that in order to maximize our nation's energy resources, we must view the nation as a whole as a Thermodynamic system, such as a heat engine. By using this "Make Sense" approach, we will be able to apply Thermodynamic techniques learned in Industry to increase our nation's efficiency and decrease our dependency on foreign oil.
Senior Citizens Are Happy Citizens: Our party values our senior citizens. We will work to insure that Medicare and Social Security are there to serve you when you are in need. This will be done by applying Thermodynamics to our nation's senior health programs, thereby cutting costs and increasing standards. We will also start a campaign to promote KM for use to stop the Entropic effects of aging. Social Security will be strengthened by applying sound Thermodynamic investing strategies which will grow funds as Entropy decreases.
Protecting The Environment Protects Our Nation: Conservation of our physical resources is important because they are limited, as the Laws of Thermodynamics teaches us. Realization that environments must succumb to Entropic increase unless off-set by extrasystemic Entropy, will lead to new ways of thinking about the Environment -- and new Thermodynamic solutions! By working with business, instead of against, and using scientific advances such as cleaner burning fuels and Kelvinian Meditation, our nation's environment can experience unprecedented slow-downs, and even local decreases, in Entropy!
The Thermodynamic Law Party Stand On Radioactivity
For too long the hoax of radioactivity has been perpetrated on the American people. Money that has been spent on so-called nuclear energy and nuclear weapons -- things that are in fact pseudoscientific mumbo-jumbo -- has actually been embezzled by corrupt government officials. The Thermodynamic Law Party will seek to expose these acts of malfeasance and to bring the truth to the American public about the non-existence of radioactivity, and the many lies that have been derived from it and other anti-Thermodynamic falsehoods. These include: the Earth's spontaneous internal "radioactive" sources of heat; an age of the Earth that is more than two orders of magnitude too large based on "radiometric dating"; the theories of evolution of species through transmutation, for which there was not enough time, and spontaneous generation of life from primordial ooze, which is in violation of the Laws of Thermodynamics; the silly idea that harmful microbial organisms can be rid from our food by exposure to "radioactive" elements; and the unwarranted fear of non-existent "radon gas". Since the Thermodynamic Law Party is grass-roots and independent of the political establishment, we will be able to work against the forces that are trying to spread these Entropic lies.
