Seven strategies for Democracy in America


We are entering a period of Constitutional Crisis in the United States: Partisan gridlock, fake news, elite money dominating the election process, hate radio, etc. All of these are likely to continue and get worse because our Founders who wrote the Constitution in the 18th century could not have anticipated our 21st century situation. And these make for an ever poorer collective thinking process and ever poorer Congressional decisions.

The Wise Democracy strategy is a simple, safe solution to all of this. But this strategy doesn’t usually receive the attention it deserves. Probably because 1) people don’t think it can work. (It can.) And 2) They are holding onto other more “common sense” solution ideas. (But they aren’t looking at them closely enough to see they can’t work.) Below is a chart to illustrate, to articulate and compare all the major, known solution strategies.

Here’s a pdf file which can be printed front/back. The front page compares seven known strategies. On the reverse page is a chance for the reader to articulate his/her solution perspective:
