Weve lived so long under the spell of hierarchyfrom god-kings to feudal lords to party bossesthat only recently have we awakened to see not only that regular citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Achieving real democracy through harmonization
Richard Moores Escaping the Matrix is one of the most exciting books of ideas Ive read in many years. I couldnt put it down until Id finished. He goes to the root cause of the cancer that is destroying life on our planet today. He does so with a simplicity that is deceptive and an argumentation accessible to anyone of a right mind. His proposals for escaping the Matrix are equally simple and at the same time profound. This is a book that needs to be widely read and debated.
