Transforming the Electoral Oligarchy of the United States of America into a participatory democracy

Start Local

If we are going to take control of our government, and transform the oligarchy into a democracy, the place to start is to mobilize to use our neighborhood associations to democratize city governments. We can use these models to show how the people are in fact capable of governing themselves, and from there progress to combine city and county democracies into statewide democratic forms that leave no room for career politicians and big-money corporate and special interests. Once we are all participating directly in governing our communities, then we will all be more prepared and able to work together to devise more democratic systems for state and federal level governments. But feel free to begin that discussion here.
