The Open Source Everything Manifesto: Chapter 7 Public Intelligence and the Citizen Extract I

Integrity, in my view, starts with the individual human being, and grows in a compounded manner from there.  The citizen must be an “intelligence minuteman.”  The next step in our exploration, beyond the individual human mind and soul, can be found in mass collaboration and particularly in collective intelligence.

. . . . . . . . . .

My point is this: the achievement of panarch is in my view inevitable.  The only questions are “how soon? and “can we avoid violence?”

. . . . . . . . . .

We are at a tipping point for restoring the intelligence and integrity of the Republic.  Time is the one strategic variable that cannot be replaced nor purchased.  I believe that all the conscousness and good intention in the world will be irrelevant if we cannot arm the public with intelligence (decision-support) on all topics at all levels of governance.

Our first challenge is to redirect “intelligence” away from secre obsession and toward open-source realities.  I illustrate this in Figure 20.
