R3: TH, as a political party currently in power, would set policy via referendum.

R4: THW financially incentivise men to enter professions that are traditionally female dominated (eg pre-school teaching, nursing, nannying, etc)

R5: THW hold truth and reconciliation committees for the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent decades of Franco’s rule.

OSF: THBT LGBT+ rights organisations when campaigning, should emphasise conformity to, rather than their differences from dominant culture as a strategy for improving the social position of LGBT+ individuals.

PAF: THS the creation of private primary and secondary schools in developing nations.

OF:Infotext: A ‘lease of life’ system assigns a pre-determined life-span to all products of manufacture when they’re first created. They can be sold and used within the time of their existence, but are declared legally ‘dead’ after that time expires. Legally dead items are subsequently destroyed and recycled by a government agency.

THW implement a system of ‘lease of life’ for all products of manufacture (such as: shoes, phones and machines).
