This chapter provides a straight-forward means for restoring self-governance by using modern information and communication technologies to reconnect We the People with both real-world real-time intelligence, and with our tax dollars that are looted the minute we lose sight of them.
Working with Joe Trippi and Jock Gill, among others, we have clearly established that $1 trillion a year is achievable in very small donations from many individuals across the one billion rich. We do not need governments as intermediaries for funding the big-ticket items–Collective Intelligence has now matured to the point that governments are stupid and the people are not. As Norman Cousins has noted, only the people can perceive the great truths. Click on the cover for the entire book, below for this chapter only.
