Joan Blades, the brilliant human that created MoveOn and Moms Rising, is now leading a new movement and meme,  Living Room Conversations. Below is the first draft of what has gone forward for possible elevation to a national conversation about THE issue of our day.

NOTE: The critical genius of Joan’s concept is the conversation first focuses on building understanding and trust face to face without regard to any issues. Appreciation for one another comes first. We consider this vastly more important than any transpartisan or activist movement because it crosses all boundaries and goes directly to “root” — our shared humanity.

We are splitting Open Power in three to make it easier for the different constituencies to work with what particularly interests them.The original will remain focused on the Electoral Reform Act of 2015.

Robert Steele Short Bio
Robert David Steele, born in New York in 1952 (63) is a long-time activist for intelligence reform (he is a former spy, honorary hacker, and a top proponent for Open Source Everything). Also a former Marine Corps infantry officer he returned to the Marine Corps from the CIA to be the senior civilian responsible for creating the Marine Corps Intelligence Center. He resigned from government to lead the open source intelligence revolution from 1993-2010. In 2011 he joined Occupy and tried to get them interested in Electoral Reform. In 2012 he was accepted by the Reform Party as a candidate for their nomination, and spent six weeks creating a web site that is still online (We the People Reform Coalition) and challenging all the other presidential candidates to come together on electoral reform. What he learned  is available online in his article, How I Tested the Boundaries of the Two-Party Tyranny. Recently, in consultation with selected transpartisan leaders, he has come to the conclusion that the time is right to mount a total offense that unites Independents and small parties — the Libertarian Party being the largest and best organized small party — to demand an Electoral Reform Act of 2015 that would make it possible to elect Libertarians and others across the country in 2016.  His overall campaign can be viewed at http://tinyurl.com/OpenPower, he has also created a Libertarian post at http://tinyurl.com/OpenPower-Libertarian. His strongest new realization is that we are all fragmented across multiple issues, and there is only ONE THING that can bring us all together and ONE THING that we can actually win on: Electoral Reform. Once achieved, Libetarians would have a level playing field for addressing each of their vital issues — without Electoral Reform, Libertarians will remain a side show. Robert is also the #1 Amazon reviewer for non-fiction, reading in 98 categories. His new book, Open Power: Electoral Reform Act of 2015 – Open Source Activist Tool-Kit has been #1 in Civics at Amazon Kindle, and includes hundreds of book reviews on Democracy Lost.
