I watched the video, and it was interesting. But when I encountered the words “fix the system. . .”, I didn’t see this movement as a solution I could support.

This movement still is, very much, about bending the will of those who aspire for political office. It is not about average citizens actually playing a direct part of governance, you know, making those tough decisions that usually require balancing of several trade-offs. Until many more average citizens participate fully in societal decisions at some point of their lives, we just won’t have that collective understanding to “grok” the complexities of our modern societies well enough to make those great collective decisions.

We really need to remove ALL political parties from government for political parties bring 12 limitations that effect societal decisions for the worse.

We need to sideline that power accumulation instinct that is in many of us. We need to find people who see their election as service to humanity, not a contest for status, influence, and power.

And we need to learn how to make consultative decisions. This is not as easy as the platitude suggests.

I will concur that this movement could reduce political corruption in the USA. But I don’t think reducing that corruption to levels typical of, say, Canada, should be USA’s final goal. Big money still has too much influence in the “kinder” Canadian democracy.

From what I gathered from the video, the leaders of this movement realize that USA is looking at two decades to effect these changes. On one hand, I would say they are realists, whereas people in political parties cannot think past the next election. On the other hand, two decades are what I think it would take for Tiered Democratic Governance to be built. I say why bother patching up a Ford Model T when you can have a brand new electric Ford car in the same time?

Spend three hours with Tiered Democratic Governance.
