Things were getting pretty out of control there for a while… the decades following the sixties saw a gradual decay of our civilization that for half a century seemed to be unsolvable. Everything had seemed to go out of control and despite the multitudinous efforts made by countless organizations and individuals, our world just seemed to be heading for destruction. There was much talk about ‘the end of the world’ and even the most optimistic agreed that, at the very least, we were going through some really hard times.
Governments, corporations, groups, individuals and the masses alike all struggled for survival. Billions of humans suffered to say nothing of the unspeakable torture we inflicted on an astronomical number of our animals friends… loss of forests, entire species and precious resources meant the quality of life had fallen so far that, unless one was extremely rich, it had become a veritable hell. The GED (Global Economic Depression) had progressed so far that riots were breaking out in numerous countries and leaders everywhere feared the worst. The great economic engines we made no longer served us and the systems of society, commerce, education, military and government lay in tatters.
Then, just over one year ago now, the whole picture changed. It was like a new wind blew in – signaling that we could no longer do what we were doing and get away with it. And simultaneously with that came the tool with which we would forge a new age and a return to overall sanity – The Global Voting System – a simple website that performed a remarkable function – that of collecting and collating everyone’s opinions, thoughts and suggestions and making them visible for all to see.
The new system caught on very quickly and even became a favorite pastime for many. To know that you could speak up for yourself and that your voice would be heard was something that we, as a race, never had before and it stimulated so much activity that for a while there, it seemed like a supercomputer might be necessary to process all the billions of thoughts, suggestions, issues and ideas that poured in from all over the globe. The advent of comparatively cheap mobile phones aided greatly in putting this power in the hands of the people and suddenly, it seemed like we had a REAL use for technology.
But even more startling changes started to happen when the second phase was introduced – that of “piping” the results to the various bodies responsible for these areas. For the first time in history, our governments were able to know and fulfill the wishes of their peoples, agencies the wishes of their members and corporations the wishes of their customers. Everyone, young and old, was given the opportunity to contribute to rebuilding our world and it wasn’t long before we saw some incredible changes.
The first was an unprecedented and greatly anticipated change in governments and politics. For the first time, it was possible for the people to express themselves on any subject and for the government to know their collective wishes and TRULY represent them.
Armed with this new knowledge, policies and laws were totally redesigned and made dynamic in nature to always be “up with the times”. No longer were we shackled by archaic laws that seemed to be impossible to change. The dictates of the people quickly found their targets in the agencies that claimed responsibility for management of those areas. This had the effect of making everything run much more like the way it always should have and almost instantly cured the vast majority of problems society was experiencing. Groups acting to the detriment of others were instantly exposed and like cockroaches, the perpetrators scattered for the cracks to avoid the light.
A number of country leaders were finally made accountable for their actions, but not exiled to some filthy rat-infested jail or hung or punished in the way we used to, but actually educated to see the error of their ways and given a chance to prove their worthiness to live in the New World.
No longer was rampant stupidity tolerated. No longer was it possible for anyone or any group to act in defiance of the global imperative and no longer did we have to stand and feel powerless when some horrible doing by some unknown entity impacted our lives.
Now, a scant year and a half on, global consciousness has risen to the point where the Gates of Heaven are not only visible, but beginning to open and beckoning us into an age of unspeakable Glory.
