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.
—Frances Moore Lappé, excerpt from Time for Progressives to Grow Up

My contribution to a revolution (a work in progress--I invite suggestions or comments

I have in the following four posts and three sections, entitled "A Revolutionary Model" describes what I believe to be the mostly likely to succeed proposal for a positive revolution in the USA.  Part 1 explains the assumptions that inform my revolutionary proposal; the second and third posts deal directly with the proposal, and finally the fourth post focuses directly on the reactionary measures we might expect to threaten such a movement and the preparations we need to cope with such methods.

I especially invite others to contribute suggestions to these posts.
