Search: smart nation intelligence reform electoral reform national security reform


Lovely to see a search like this.  Here are the core references and then a comment and then a number of other references, but the reality is that this entire website is about creating a smart nation, and world brain, and four reforms: electoral, intelligence, governance, and national security.

Afterthought:  all the references from the early 1990's are sad but still relevant.  99% of our “managers” have been repeating the same year's experience each year for the past 20-30 years.  There has been no cumulative learning, no strategic development, and that is why we need the four reforms and a smart nation–all of which is rooted in creating a defense open source intelligence grid that is capable of Multinational Engagement that leverages 90 militaries to create two-way reachback across all eight tribes in all languages all the time.

NOTE: It's all connected.    Cannot have smart spies in a dumb nation, cannot have proper education within a two-party tyranny that screws the middle class, blue collar, and poor in order to enrich the corrupt few–this is as true in small towns across America as it is at the federal level.  See Deer Hunting with Jesus–Dispatches from America’s Class War
