A powerful yet pragmatic road-map to a new paradigm for civilisation, that simultaneously offers a trenchant, unrelenting critique of the prevailing global order - the Open Source revolution - an all-encompassing approach to the eternal problem of hierarchy, and how so few people are currently manage to determine the destiny of so many.
Robert Steele's interdisciplinary 'whole systems' approach dramatically connects the increasing corruption, inefficiency and unaccountability of the 'intelligence system' and its political and financial masters with the escalating inequalities and environmental crises.
The Open-Source Everything Manifesto is a distillation of author, strategist, analyst, and reformer Robert David Steele life's work: the transition from top-down secret command and control to a world of bottom-up, consensual, collective decision-making as a means to solve the major crises facing our world today. The book is intended to be a catalyst for citizen dialog and deliberation, and for inspiring the continued evolution of a nation in which all citizens realize our shared aspiration of direct democracy—informed participatory democracy. Open-Source Everything is a cultural and philosophical concept that is essential to creating a prosperous world at peace, a world that works for one hundred percent of humanity. The future of intelligence is not secret, not federal, and not expensive. It is about transparency, truth, and trust among our local to global collective. Only "open" is scalable.
As we strive to recover from the closed world corruption and secrecy that has enabled massive fraud within governments, banks, corporations, and even non-profits and universities, this timely book is a manifesto for liberation—not just open technology, but open everything.
