The Tao of Democracy
describes a new vision of politics and governance that can simultaneously
address our unprecedented social problems and build a society that
works for all.
It demonstrates how very different people can now find creative
common ground and shared wisdom together. And it tells us how to
use that fact to bring our dusty old politics up to speed, and find
the wisdom we need to safely navigate the 21st century.
While the political vision in The Tao of Democracy
is new, it is grounded in dozens of proven group processes, techniques
and political models which it describes in detail.
Based on the philosophical insights of modern systems thinking,
Eastern spirituality and recent developments in dialogue and social
self-organization, The Tao of Democracy
shows how a few relatively simple changes in our political institutions
can produce a wise government of the people, by the people and for
the people, at last.
The real-life stories, creative ideas and explicit how-to guidance
in this book offer inspiration and tools for everyone who wants
effective groups, healthy communities and a better world.
