ENVISION THIS: A system of governance that enables mass collaboration, human rights, and local sovereignty.
Heather Marsh is a political theorist and a human rights and internet activist. She is the author of BINDING CHAOS, a study of methods of mass collaboration. As editor in chief and administrator of the Wikileaks news outlet, Wikileaks Central, she used the media attention on Wikileaks in 2010 to 2012 to shine light on human rights and transparency issues and support revolutions around the world.
In her blog at http://georgiebc.wordpress.com, Heather explains her radical proposal for governance. Claiming that “The world is long overdue for a completely new system of governance,” she proposes a system that would not devolve into oligarchy and corporate controlled economic systems. “Old authoritarian systems can no longer bind the natural chaos of a free society, but we can show the power of chaotic order, the beauty and creativity of collaborative freedom, if we build the right structures now.”
Heather will share with us “methods of mass collaboration which would allow us to effectively communicate and create on a global scale while still allowing us autonomy and regional choice.” We look forward to sharing her radical ideas with our listeners.
