Massive Global Movement and Universal Strategic Plan
For a Permanently Peaceful, Prosperous, Just, Sustainable World

This website describes the Massive Global Movement and Universal Strategic Plan (MGM&USP) which provides an overall strategy, common plans, tools, and funding sources for the millions of dedicated individuals and thousands of organizations working on reform and change all over the world, in particular to help them to work together better. The MGM&USP is not intended to slow or stop ongoing, meaningful work.

The MGM&USP initially focuses on the United States. Parallel Individual Movements and Plans that mimic the MGM&USP will be prepared for cities, states, other nations and the United Nations and its affiliated organizations beginning with Washington DC and the UN - see Highlights of the Movement and Plan for a Prosperous, Just, Sustainable Washington DC.

The MGM&USP will do more than end war and poverty, it will provide peace and prosperity for all. To have this happen, the MGM&USP shows that with today's productivity, technology and accumulated knowledge, the tough problems and challenges that we face can be overcome--if we work together. These problems and challenges include:

See more Problems and Challenges.

This Movement and Strategic Plan:

1.  Outlines all significant Actions including the Millennium and Sustainability Development Goals, that must be accomplished to have a permanently peaceful, prosperous, just, sustainable world, in the Common Agenda of Actions and Action Plans (with related Actions grouped into about three dozen Action Plans);

2.  Requests individuals and organizations add their own Actions and Actions Plans to the Common Agenda and volunteer to work on or take the lead on specific Actions and Action Plans in which they are interested;

3.  Lists all organizations and individuals working on reform in the Massive Global Matrix Network (MGMN) in the cloud.  The MGMN lists individuals by partner organization issues and actions that they are interested in, and their nine-digit zip codes which define their neighborhoods, communities, cities, states and political districts;

4.  Identifies the following Action Plans that should be accomplished immediately:

Ultimately the Action Plans will be on the web sites of the organizations or individuals taking the lead refining and implementing one or more of the significant Actions or Action Plans with a central office coordinating the prioritizing and sequencing of Actions with an advanced project management and communication system based on a combination of IBM's Watson and Microsoft's Professional Project.

The Zeitgeist Movement contends that the majority of the problems which plague the human species are "Symptoms" born out of an outdated social structure and calls for the installation of a [completely] new socioeconomic model.

In his book, The Sane Society, Eric Fromm states: "Change must be a simultaneous change in economic, education, political and cultural spheres. Changes restricted to one sphere are destructive of every change."

This all requires hundreds of significant actions, thousands of tasks and subtasks and making changes in essentially all “spheres." Also, most of this work must be prioritized and sequenced. The thousands of organizations and millions of individuals working on reform around the world need a common set of plans and ways to coordinate the massive amount of work that must be done./p>

This must be done rapidly and absolutely nonviolently. Violence will not work and even if it did another faction more violent than us would eventually take over.

By no means complete, the MGM&USP provides a framework into which additional actions, action plans,   elements and ideas can easily be inserted. Questions, comments, suggestions and help to refine and implement it are welcomed and can be forwarded to PeopleNow.org via email refinetheplan@peoplenow.org or volunteer@PeopleNow.org fax 703-521-0849.

President Eisenhower's Warning to America

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."
—Dwight D. Eisenhower Text of Farewell Address, January 17, 1961

As depicted in Dwight Eisenhower's Warning to America

President Eisenhower's warning has gone unheeded. Wars, poverty and wealth inequalities unnecessarily persist.

We are at a crossroad and despite our hard work, we progressive are behind and will be further behind if we do not work together using this or a similar set of common plans.

If we continue with the current failed militarism, monetary and political systems and allow corporation executives to continue controlling our public servants, institutions and elections, we will have:

1.  Increasing worldwide unemployment, poverty, malnutrition, hunger, diseases, homelessness, wealth divide and a massive depression

2.  Cuts in social security, Medicare, welfare programs and public services

3.  Endless wars, occupations, militarism and empire building

4.  Increasing global warming, rising sea levels and super storms

5.  More torture, abuse, extraordinary renditions, false arrests and non-judicial killings

6.  Chronic water and energy shortages, environment degradation and natural resource depletion

Please review the parts of the MGM&USP in which you are interested. Subscribe to receive emails, work on specific Actions or Action Plans from the Common Agenda with others, and/or have your organization or you become an Equal Partner in the Global Nonhierarchical Matrix Network and/or read more in the Executive Summary of the MGM&USP

I wish to thank all who have contributed to this Massive Global Movement and Universal Strategic Plan and apologize for not finding the time to acknowledge all the contributors.

It is still a work in progress and by no means complete. It provides a framework into which additional ideas and elements can easily be inserted. Comments, suggestions, and help to refine and implement this plan are welcomed and can be forwarded to PeopleNow.org via email refinetheplan@peoplenow.org or fax 703-521-0849.

If we work together, continually refine and implement this Global Movement and Universal Strategic Plan, we will have a permanently peaceful, prosperous, just, sustainable world.
