Based upon fear of its people

Our society is based upon fear of its people. Leaders of governments fear the “chaos” of people actually talking with each other—they may take control of their community! So limited access is the rule. Representative democracy is limited democracy.

How do we get beyond this? What about people who will vote their fears, will not open their vulnerability and truly meet? The answer has to come from the people, because the people is all we are, all we will ever have. That is to say, let’s work out that tough question and all others we may have in the only way that works: together. I will not win; you will not win: we will both be changed. There is a way.
