Hacking the system

Really interesting article here from Mitch Radcliffe which

suggests specific hacks to the existing system that can transform the energy rising today into a continuing political reality that liberates individual initiative and collective will to solve common problems without establishing a new political power hierarchy that must inevitably be overthrown. If a system is “emergent,” that is if it allows new order to rise of out disaggregated action, it must be architected to sustain maximum freedom to innovate while facilitating, at minimum, semi-permanent organizations that can apply political and social capital to social decisions over time. Without a mechanism for people to agree on principles and practices that are appropriate to solving their collective problems, politics cannot exist.
