The current issue of The Intelligent Optimist (formerly called Ode magazine) has a cover theme “How to fix politics: More engaged citizens, less business as usual”. In their introductory essay “Join the party: An invitation to renew and revitalize politics”, editors Jurriaan Kamp and Marco Visscher write “While searching for ideas to modernize our dated version of democracy, we encountered the work of Tom Atlee…[which] attempts to incorporate the citizen – and his or her responsibility – back into democracy through a relatively simple, practical method.”
The following “How to fix politics” section features a long and excellent article by Atlee, “Voting is not enough”, well edited from excerpts from The Tao of Democracy and Empowering Public Wisdom, as well as an essay on citizen deliberative councils, an interview with Atlee, and an announcement of a webinar with the author on October 18, 2012. (See the webinar page which features Atlee’s TEDx talk via Skype to Warwick England at http://www.odenow.com/empowering-public-wisdom-with-tom-atlee/)
You can find Atlee’s, these, and many other articles in the online version of the magazine at http://epub02.publitas.com/710/0912USIO/#/spreadview/66/. We encourage you to join the Intelligent Optimist community at http://theoptimist.com/join and join us for the webinar on Oct 18.
