: What I'm looking for is a system which offers the following:

I followed your list and thought I would ask how is this;

": 4) An expansion of freedom to its greatest limits."

....To be achieved when in order to meet these goals;

": 1) A commitment to green politics, i.e., a sustainable use of resources, with paramount importance given to protecting and conserving the natural world;

: 2) A commitment to labor rights, human rights, and civil rights (with room for animal rights, should that movement to change hearts and minds finally succeed);

: 3) Diminishing the gap between the haves and have nots as much as is possible, so that no one is very poor, or very rich. Equality should be the ideal, not an afterthought"

....Will require by definition the obligation of people to tend to them?

What if lots of people did not wish to tend to one, two or all three of these goals - or wanted some parts but not others?

The above goals require people to do things, what if they dont want to? How does one set about getting them to do those things without compromising goal #4?
