First, what is sortitioned leadership?
Sortition is a grass roots finding tool. It mathematically and scientifically duplicates, in smaller populations, the larger America. It does not discriminate, period. There is no gender, ethnic, economic, religious, or political discrimination. It goes a big step further. It also doesn’t discriminate by “resume”, “education”, “intelligence”, “beauty”, or “charisma”. Sortition finds 100% grass roots America, the bottom line, the common sense, the no-holds-barred America.
The primary mission of government is to set priorities. Priorities determine law, policy, and enforcement. Faulty priority creates failed law, policy, and misguided enforcement. Faulty priority leads to failure.
The primary mission of sortitioned leadership is not law, policy, or enforcement. It is the input and maintenance of proper government priority and genuine grass-roots civilian culture and civility. Priority maintenance is no small task. Witness Massey and BP slide away from safety. Witness war on terror morph into nation building. Witness financial markets morph into casinos. Witness democracy warp to oligarchy. Priority maintenance is no small responsibility. Faulty priority leads to failure.
The primary asset of sortitioned leadership is scientifically represented citizen life experience, knowledge, and values. “Resume”, “education”, “intelligence”, and “beauty” are “weighed in” only at existing population levels. Priority is determined by life experience, belief, and values. Priority maintenance is the specialty of sortitioned leadership.
Sortitioned leadership is the “conscience” behind government. It is grass-roots values, beliefs, and motives empowered to guide, mentor and coach government.
Government without “conscience” is tyranny. Sortitioned leadership provides government with “conscience” and a “soul”.
Step it up, America.
Citizen is coach to team democracy. Coach is responsible for success. It’s your call, coach.
