Changes

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.

Sources

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 is old Attic Greek. It is a practice nearly forgotten and greatly needed during interesting times. The Ancient Greek poet Archilochus put it best:
“The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog one big thing.” The plague arrived in Athens in 430 B.C. and one-third of the Athenian population died of typhus. While prior to personal protection equipment observers noted how helping one sufferer harmed another. Some things never change.

Stop retweeting people you believe to be a credible source until Tuesday, November 3, 2020. You already know why that can be a mistake and how it occurs. The fox is messing with you, be the hedgehog.

Vision

My work gets organized, energized, or unified and mashed up by building a set of posts that allows us to scan messages from change agent organizations (here). Stories on urban life issues 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 fiscal control. The force for this change is drawn from a simple observation.

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.

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
  • Proof is the Only Problem.
    Data only has meaning in people standing face-to-face in a place.
  • Density is the Answer.
    Density can end planetary disruptions.
