In one of the chapters in my book I talked about the way that… If democracy is struggling in the form of governments, and our civic ways of organizing ourselves, and if corporations are increasingly… as usual taking out significant chunks of our lives, and our time, and our energy, why don’t we try to manifest more democratic principles within organizations? And, you know, Tracy Fenton has that competition for the world’s most Democratic Organization, and I think those willing to engage the possibilities of these network ways of working, will have a much more representative if you like, way of working as a Corporation. And this is my hope. I mean this is why I work with some people, look, you know, maybe people wonder why I’m working with them, but if I can just enable small cracks in the surface to expand and allow some of this to happen that’s a good thing.
I was just reading a really good article yesterday about the end of the Morphing of Democracy; how it’s really fundamentally changing and how Left to Center parties are just struggling for definition, and right-wing parties are becoming more popular in some parts in Europe as things get tougher, and it is clear that there’s a lot of things at the moment, really struggling and not working. And I think human nature being such we’ll work out and we will doing things. For the last depending on large corporations I know, I don’t know, I’m not… I don’t worry about that as well. Just for the nature of (…) the whole thing about been there to maximize shareholder value and blah, blah, blah. You would have to fundamentally rethink markets and the way they are driven, and the values that they manifest, before you could I think begin to trust the rest of society.
