To change something create a new model that makes the old one obsolete"

Description of the
Nonpartisan, Nonhierarchic

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) that provides an overall strategy, common plans, tools, and funding-sources--for everyone in the world who so desires to work on change and reform completely peacefully--using nonviolent-techniques partially described in a Review of a Manual for Nonviolence.

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 related organizations.

Millions of outstanding-individuals around the world are working on change-and-reform--mainly alone or in stove-pipe organizations. But many others are using violence that will definitely not work. But we have not had a common-set of non-violent plans until now--the MGM&USP.

If we work peacefully--together refining and using the MGM&USP--we will do more than end wars, conflicts and poverty--we will have 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.

These problems-and-challenges include:

See more Problems-and-Challenges and Urgent Need-for-Reform.

This Movement and Strategic-Plan:

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

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

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

4.  Identifies Action-Plans that should be accomplished immediately including:

5.  The Summary of Funding-Sources shows that there is more than enough money to do all of this work, and eliminate deficit spending, etc. For example:

 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 (probably based on a combination of IBM's Watson and Microsoft's Professional Project).

The Zeitgeist Movement contends that the majority of the problems that 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 change 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 more-violent-faction would eventually take over.

By no means complete, the MGM&USP provides a framework into that more--additional actions, action-plans,   elements and ideas--can easily be inserted. Questions, comments, suggestions and help--to refine-and-implement the MGM&USP--is welcome 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 progressives 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.
