Very few people know that I was accepted as a candidate for the Reform Party nomination for the presidency in 2012. I used that experience to seek out wizards across the country and consolidate their transpartisan wisdom (not to be confused with bi-partisan complicity) at one web site, We the People Reform Coalition.
On 28 February 2015 I will be facilitating a workshop on Open Power at the Economics of Happiness Conference, an event I recommend to one and all — Jerry Mander will be there, one reason I am personally excited about attending.
Below are the read-ahead documents I have just finished loading to the event post at Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog, where I curate over 80 truth-telling editors from around the world, but most true-blue sons and daughters of the USA.
PART I OF OUR WAR FOR INDEPENDENCE DEMANDS CONVERGENCE
If we do not come together on the ONE THING [#ElectoralReform] that is arguably in the best interests of the public irrespective any given ideological, religious, or financial circumstance, we will continue to be destroyed by a system so corrupt that its leading members are easily indictable in any International Tribunal or World Court.

PART III OF OUR WAR FOR INDEPENDENCE DEMANDS A NEW MIND-SET
The one-party winner-take-all systems is DEAD. It is harmful to all of us. We need a completely new mind-set that is oriented toward conversations and deliberative dialog at the neighborhood level that is NOT organized around parties but instead around common concerns and shared facts. We need a completely new (actuallly indigenous and original) approach to governance in which everyone has a role to play, and ALL elements of society are represented from the town council to the national Cabinet. Below is one notional representation of what an honest complete and effective Cabinet might look like.
