I like these kinds of quotes from Medium contributors:
we need some time of awakening or revolution.
So my question is: Are we really ready to enact a revolution?
My experience suggests that Medium writers and readers are not ready. Rather they are content to sit at their computer screens discussing the incompetence of Mr. Trump and other politicians, somehow believing that world will change with such musings. In that way, they force change, but someone else will do all the heavy lifting. Good deal, if I don’t say so myself.
This well written article took about three hours to put together. Good writing is not easy, and my commendations to the writer for putting it together.
Three hours is also the time required to read my book “Tiered Democratic Governance (TDG). The TDG is an alternative system of governance, one that the likes of Mr. Trump will not rise to high office. Unlike other brandishers of utopias, I have given a four-stage plan for the early builders to move from western democracy to this new democracy.
But will the writer read my book? Experience says no.
Will Medium readers, who probably spend three hours a week on Medium want to read my book. No, they won’t, either. Rather they will relish the next well written anti-Trump article.
Sorry, revolutions require some heavy lifting. Fortunately, the TDG does not require guns and killing and a celebrity leader with leaning to psychopathic traits. Rather, the TDG first requires an investment of a three-hour read. If the new revolutionaries find the TDG idea worthy of pursuing, the TDG asks to pitch the idea to their neighbors and see if four or a few more neighbors want to spend a couple of evenings a month writing a local TDG constitution. Much better than guns, right?
It’s your choice! Where do you put your next three Medium hours?
