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.

For recent reflections, hit that skull to Stimulate Your Hippocampus. Thanks to all the lovers of ghosts who write. Please forgive broken links. I’m still reorganizing.
Sources for Synergy
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 a practice nearly forgotten and greatly needed during interesting times. The Greek poet Archilochus put it best: “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog one big thing.” Typhus arrived in Athens in 430 B.C., killing one-third of the Athenian population. Observers still noted how one sufferer harmed another. Some things never change.
The mattter of obtaining “ends” are questions of values, and on values, reason itself becomes silent. Combining interests to produce a larger impression 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. Therefore, the beginning is political before all else, and where people wander in pairs. Maybe a few “groups” the way Margaret Mead talked of it. Take care, you could come across a real Dick and Perry or Amos and Daniel or those in between. It really isn’t up to us to know when, why, or how. Bill Moyer called it a “guiding hand” and left it alone…so that’s the plan.
- Polarized National Politics Will Kill Us
Regional governing bodies, their perils, and benefits
- Design Restorative Cities by Region
Produce 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 can end planetary disruptions.
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 people’s voices 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.
The “states” of the Republic are becoming political relics. The short step by step, renewable version toward this logical end should follow with the use of your own Hippocampus. Explore, share, laugh.
