I am concerned about the health of our democracy. (Update: I no longer describe Canada as a democracy. It’s a corporatocracy or something else,, but not a democracy.)
Information is empowering.
It enables citizens to take back power and control, to assume responsibility.
We take back power
by connecting with each other, to create critical mass.
We work together transforming information into action.
To improve and change the way things are.
Values are at the base.
We have the power and the choice to create the world we can imagine.
Will it be human values and democratic, de-centralized governance?
Or will it be utilitarian values and corporatocracy?
