If you have stumbled across this forgive me, but if I directed you as a prospective partner, or purchased your services, double forgive me. The only political leadership thing I’m working on now involves is a period of reflection on System Change. I follow this with an analysis of the attending malfunctions.

All of the entries are unedited and await a final crunch prior to placement elsewhere. Spend some time reading my thoughts or observations, I would appreciate your comments. Thank you to everyone. With that known, read on, enjoy the development of a complex narrative on ideas I believe require full implementation.

The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations will produce an effect greater than the sum of separate efforts. Tweet-O-Rama will allow you to scan messages from about one-hundred change agent organizations and people. The question: How and on what issues do they combine to produce a greater effect?

Synergy creates a thing greater than the sum of its parts. It is an old word from the Attic Greek

About REX

My research gets organized, energized, or unified and mashed up by building a set of posts that allow me to scan messages from change agent organizations (here). I like stories about our urban life and the voices of people in political leadership intent on building the proof we need to become our better selves.


One well-established vision calls for metropolitan regions with complete political control. I see the force for this change is how the “states” of the Republic are becoming political relics. The short step by step, renewable version toward this logical end goes like this:

  • Polarized National Politics Might Kill Us All.
    Regional governing bodies, its perils, and benefits
  • Design Restorative Cities and Buildings.
    Produce positive urban recurrences through technology
  • The proof is the Only Problem.
    Data only has meaning in people standing face-to-face in a place.
  • Density is the Answer.
    Density and compacity can end planetary disruptions.

These are not matters for debate. They are the topics of “ends” that are questions of values, and on values reason is silent. Combining interests to produce a larger effect is mostly personal with a modest search for others seeking to share interactions capable of creating more than separate effects at the bottom of the system change ladder. The beginning is therefore political before all else in a world where people wander in pairs, maybe be part of a few “groups.” It is there where you could come across Dick and Perry or Amos and Daniel or something in between. It really isn’t up to us to know if or when, why, or how. Bill Moyer called it a “guiding hand,” and left it alone…so that’s the plan.
