I am a social ecologist completing my disseratation in educational media studies. I believ consensus basesd participation is critical in helping the people to educate themselves. I'm also working on trying to esstablish a GA based political party. I am one of the founders of the Justice Party of California. I am not here to push any kind of agenda but I want to help in establishing empowerment networks.

I came on late at 8pm due to a class I teach biweekly, so I missed quite a bit. However, I was in a breakout with Drew and got a fairly good earful of some of the planning and visioning re: website and a little about strategy.

I'm interested in knowing more about the Justice party. I read a bit about Rocky Anderson a couple weeks ago, but haven't seen any more since watching his interview with Amy Goodman on Democracy Now. I'm across the bay from you in Novato.
Looking forward to having you join our weekly call conversations and online.
Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
