Tim Livestreaming The Organizers Of The DNC Gathering
Organized by: Tim Anderson
July 18, 2016
EVENT DATE Jul 21, 2016
I just can't resist driving with a group from Seattle to Philadelphia to help with and film the events around the Democratic National Convention. I will by Advertise"> focus on livestreaming the protest organizers themselves as they deal with the changing situations and try to make our nonviolent movement successful. I will post the deliberations widely so folks back home can help via Comments! YAY! Crowdsourcing! What a concept!
Volunteers back home will monitor comments, analyze trends, note brilliant new ideas and send them back to me. I will offer these inputs to the organizers personally. Viola! Semi-direct, inclusive democracy!
Since middle school I've noticed progressives have a tough time organizing themselves. People are just weak at getting huge numbers working together. For decades I've been analyzing this and trying solutions, and I want to try this one at the DNC.
Of course I will also have suggestions as to how to run spokescouncils, come to consent, by Advertise"> be power-equivalent, inclusive and transparent! That's just what I do. But simply livestreaming itself will have a democratizing effect. When your movement is watching you, it's sobering. It makes you more responsible. It inoculates against power-mongering, grandstanding, smoky back-room deals, going off the rails, and getting intimidated or overwhelmed by aggressive "anarchists"/agents provacteurs. This livestreamed democracy in action will have to be an essential part of the movement in the future. Let's start now!
Here's the classic Next Step Together website which explains the ideas behind this hyper-democratizing, reVillaging, consent-ocracy mission.
