Subject: The Science of Democracy II...

I repeat the following introduction:

This is an invite to my two most favored bloggers, Dave Winer and Doc Searls - an invite to cooperate in an effort to help solve societies current problems - starting with, what I consider to be, a fundamental and/or cause/problem.

We have a shortage of people
that understand and support

  "The Science of Democracy."

Please, above all, accept what I write as nothing more than a statement of my opinion - I have no need or desire to insult either one of you. My objective is to learn what I can about your opinions on the related points - and that, of course, is what Democracy is all about.

And now, on with Part II of The Science of Democracy and our lack of a fully functioning Democracy -- the effort of various entities to control the behavior of the citizens.

Barack Obama has a Foundation -- designed to control the behavior of the participants.

The Obama Presidential Center, while located on the south side of Chicago, near the University of Chicago and the Obama's permanent home, he says, seated beside the outgoing first lady in the video, will undertake projects all over the city, the country and the world.

"This will be your presidential center just as much as it is ours,"  Michelle Obama says in the video, inviting public input on what the work of the center should be and which young leaders and companies and organizations the foundation should be attuned to.

"True democracy is a project that's bigger than any one of us," the former president adds, "and thus is a job for all of us."

With that in mind, I had intended to present copies of the sites Terms & Conditions as well as their Privacy Policy; however, that might be pushing Copyright limitations, so you will have to check them out for yourself.

The fact that they fail to provide an email address, requires you to sign-up, accepting their terms and conditions, if you want to participate. A truly Democratic government must control this kind of effort on the part of some members to control the behavior of other members.

BTW, do I need to post a complete page to remind you that the present Donald Trump/Media controversy is nothing more than an attempt to control POTUS behavior. I wonder where the Media got all that gall.

to be continued (of course)

I don't provide for comments since that is a system designed to control the communication process -- I do provide an e-mail address!! (Please put a [MYWAY] in your title to get my attention).

(Special Note: My outgoing e-mail is temporarily out-of-order, so I will respond to any e-mails I receive with a post on this web site)

BTW, I am working on a replacement system for individuals -- and I sure could use some help. Please see http://pdmsb.com, a work-in-process.
