The Power of an Idea 

All great works begin with an idea; it is initially visible within someone's head. Then the visionary works on the idea. As others join in, the idea produces activities which everyone can see. This effort may lead to a new institution. The idea has acquired a structure within society. It has materialized.

It is that process to which Jesus referred when he said: "The kingdom of God ... is like the mustard-seed, which is smaller than any seed in the ground at its sowing. But once sown, it springs up and grows taller than any other plant, and forms branches so large that the birds can settle in its shade." (Mark 4: 30-32)

This web site is about the genesis of a timely idea. And what is the idea? It is about government and political power. It is about how to gather the power within one's own hands and reshape society to become what it ought to be.

Right now, the United States of America is the most powerful nation on earth. Its power is held by elected officials beholden to an economic-financial-legal elite. Money is the force which holds political power in its hands. Yet, the power belongs ultimately to the people. If individuals can become united in any single course of action, they can do as they please.

Both major parties today are agents of the status quo. Both are beholden to moneyed interests. To keep political power in the hands of a few, the mass of people must be kept at each others' throats. Demonization of one's opponents and, ultimately, of ourselves is how the game of two-party politics is played.

What vision is left of a good and healthy society? There is none. We are at the mercy of political leaders who may not have our best interests in mind.

This web site is meant to be a clearinghouse for discussion of ideas related to reforming the political process and creating a better society. This is an invitation to take part in the project while it is still in the discussion phase.
