    This may not be the right site for that but rather just one of it's branches.

    Here's my thought and a question for feedback:  To be effective in our current economic/political/cultural system we need to develop a structure with a goal, and a plan.  Else we're all moving like (who on this site said it?) cats in LA during an earthquake in the rain.  I believe this system has to have a core structure similar to a (non-evil) corporation or military unit where there is a leader/figurehead, a board of directors, VPs, Managers, and so on.

    This start of this structure may already exist.  So my first question, assuming this doesn't get lost in the comments, is what entities are potential candidates to assume this role?  

    I have a thought but I'd like to see others comments first.

    •  i think you have to define the goal (0+ / 0-)

      before your can decide what the structure is going to be or who is needed to be in that structure.

      I think the goal must be a concrete one with quantifiable benchmarks.  It can't be "retake the congress" or "promote progressive causes".

      There must be a clearly defined goal and then you can begin a discussion about how to organize a structure to support it.

      Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I will tell you what you believe. h/t MeteorBlades
