This is a bit of a follow-up to a couple of previous episodes…

How does a bottom-up government, like the Life: Earth Mission (aka Prime Directive Earth) one I’ve been sharing, work? Whatever way works! Just like in a healthy living organism, like a human body, each local area, be it a collection of blood cells, a kidney, or a hand, makes it’s own decisions about how it wants to make decisions, based on who’s there, and whatever they find most comfortable for how they collaborate. And, while a bottom-up, living organism system is definitely no utopia (as we all know, when our bodies get sick or hurt or, eventually, die), the goal of a healthy organism is to try to give every individual within the system what it needs to function as well as possible, while being flexible and resilient through complex networks that can temporarily work around malfunctioning areas until they can heal and be put back online and working for the system again.

The more the individuals focus on taking care of themselves in their small communities, organs/organizations, using whatever skills, interests, resources, etc. they happen to have on hand, and the more these groups network together, based on both geography and category of purpose, the healthier and more effective the system as a whole becomes. The health of the system grows exponentially, meaning that we can repair a huge amount of damage pretty quickly as long as we focus on actually doing so, freely, and with a goal of system health, rather than competition.

If you and a bunch of others were starting a new colony from scratch, on another planet, or just an island on Earth, what form of governance would you want to use? How would you want decisions to be made about about who does_gets what? discussion on Reddit’s /r/Futurology community

A proposal for governance in the post 2011 world – just a little something that I found interesting on the wikileaks website

The simple campaign to write in “Everyone” on the ballot, when it comes time to elect a politician, is a movement to create a better system that combines the more comfortable form of government that we call democracy (where every individual gets to vote for what they want in a government) with a more respectful and welcoming form of government where smaller, fuzzier, more localized groups are allowed to freely choose how they want to run things, independendly. Having a decentralized, bottom-up, non-authoritarian government where people are free to move from places with average or even bad laws and policies to places with better or even awesome laws or policies will give everyone a chance to take charge of their own lives far more enjoyably. It’s definitely not perfect, but it’s better than the current highly centralized, top-down, (winner take all) authoritarian option where we essentially are all forced into mediocrity, and exceptional progress is quite literally illegal.

Enjoy!

Everyone for President: the Campaign kicks off!

Vote for Everyone, including the trees!

Isn’t it time that we stand up for EVERYONE?

If you believe it is, then vote: Everyone for President!

BECAUSE: We intend to create a healthy, thriving, procreative system of government that functions as effectively, efficiently, and joyfully as possible while serving the needs of all individuals, so that we can all be our best possible selves

BECAUSE: We believe that when individuals are supported in getting their basic physical needs met we are naturally motivated, and able, to serve all of life by contributing high quality matter and energy to others, freely and enthusiastically, and that the physical need for humans are:

high quality food
clean water
fresh air
comfortable warmth
inspiring light
honest information
and ways to freely express the body’s excess solids, liquids, gasses, and energy

BECAUSE: We ourselves are motivated to invest our resources in increasing the ability of individuals’ bodies, personal spaces, communities, and global culture as a whole to flourish

BECAUSE: We understand that the most robust and resilient systems — as in all biological organisms — are self-organizing, bottom-up, free-flowing, nurturing, cooperation-based, emergent, and decentralized

WE CHOOSE TO MAKE A STATEMENT ABOUT MOVING TOWARDS A MORE FREE, RESILIENT, COOPERATION-BASED, DECENTRALIZED GOVERNMENT BY ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO VOTE:

(write in)
☑ EVERYONE FOR PRESIDENT

(and Prime Minister, and Chancellor, and Congress, and Parliament, and Governor, and Grand Poobah, etc.)

This is a bottom-up, do it ourselves, emergent campaign, where everyone is equal in their ability to participate, promote, and discuss the idea of moving past the win-lose, competitive, force-based, artificial, money/greed/hoarding-focused government and economic system, and towards a win-win, cooperative, nurturing-based, natural, health-focused government and economic system, in whatever way feels most compelling, joyful, and meaningful to us as Earthlings.

Feel free to join me specifically, or follow your own path in this campaign. If you want to discuss things, come visit the Everyone for President community on Reddit! And maybe download, print, and share the flyers here: EveryoneforPresidentflyer.PDF

Yay!
