We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that 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.

Let's Get Behind Gil Furbright...or whatever his name is.

Click here if you wish to access this video directly from represent.us website via their YouTube channel. (Note: by the way, by posting this I do not support their program to remedy the One Percent's ownership of the political system and government...and everything else.)

This same website has also developed another interesting video that is based on a Princeton research report that I haven't read, but I think you will agree that we don't need to read it.
