…Our political system, and that of all other post industrial societies needs to begin to change immediately. This cannot wait. Destruction of our planet’s climate and the completely interrelated political and population upheavals can only be managed with effective planetary alliances supporting the well being of the entire population and entire biosphere. Allowing people to make policies destructive to our long term survival is not an option. Allowing the traditional models of semi-democratic rule to work on the assumption that common sense is all that is needed to determine the welfare of our communities in a time of complete change only guarantees failure. We cannot afford that . . .
Online, open communities need to self organize to address the political change that is needed. Direct democracy with ignorance actively denounced is the route to a new, effective human self government.
