    Presentation to the NEH Presentation to the NEH Presentation Transcript

    • FUNDAMENTAL ISSUES REQUIRING IMMEDIATE CORRECTIVE MEASURES   In context of the published NEH 2007-2007 Mission Statement which is not being fulfilled completely until the remedial actions are taken. This is an independently funded and produced report with a sole intent of supplying information required for a more complete wisdom overall.
    • Democracy Can Break Down
      • When the communications channels required for this process to function become overloaded or overly complex.
      • When citizens have personally experienced this breakdown to the point of disillusionment over the system
      • These problems are not the fault of anyone or organization, rather they are inherent due to the complexities of today’s world.
    • The Founders of this nation could not have predicted the exponential technological progress of and information overload we live with today.
      • As communications become too complex for both citizens and elected officials to handle, the process starts to break.
      • When citizens have repeatedly and unsuccessfully tried to use the proper channels, disillusionment results.
      • Unless such is halted and reversed, the application of democratic principles will deteriorate faster and faster.
    • Reverse the Sense of Disillusionment over the perceived failure of the democratic process through action.
      • There will likely be trial and error involved.
      • It is of great importance that the intention and actions are made known to every citizen keeping true to equality under the law.
      • Citizens should feel their voices are heard, have some confirmation that such is the case via personal response.
      • Some recourse to address matters which have not been fixed yet must be easily accessible to all.
    • Recommendation: parallel pursuit of three items
      • Inform the public this problem has been recognized and corrective measures taken. Request their participation to collaborate on the solution.
      • Creation of a mostly technical committee to address technological issues.
      • Creation of a PR committee to address the Humanities side of the problem
    • A Collective Vision for the Future
      • A nation where the original principles set forth by the founders are still fundamentals, simply adapted to the changes of today.
      • Equality under law, where all voices are both heard and acknowledged, where injustices are corrected when identified.
      • All Rights granted under law are guaranteed to each individual in the real world tool.
      • The faster this process can be set in motion, the sooner the deterioration can be reversed.
    • Summary
      • The most critical element is the reversal of the sense of disillusionment that seems so common today.
      • Here is where the NEH, artists and musicians can accomplish the most good, reaching the greatest percentage of the population quickly and be trusted sources.
      • A journey of 1000 miles starts with the first step.
