Dear [FNAME],

Progressives can learn from the ancient story of the blind wise ones, who were put in a room and instructed to describe what was in the room. One said a rug, another said a hose, another said a rope, another said a tree trunk and another said a spear. There was an elephant in the room. Progressives value democracy, collective cooperation, equality, empathy, compassion, interdependence, transparency, justice and fairness. These are all, listed separately, progressive values. But I believe they add up to be dimensions of the bigger picture I characterize as a bottom-up way of seeing and be

The indigenous people of northern Canada's Nunavut have 50 words for snow, because they need that many to survive and thrive. Progressives will be more effective and successful if they have a better understanding of their "elephant," and see all the dimensions of their Progressive values within the bigger context of bottom-up values. The opposite of bottom-up is top-down which includes domination, hierarchy, centralization and power-over.

There's a bottom-up revolution well under way. It is changing everything, wiping out Industries, creating new Industries, catalyzing revolutions and creating new ways to communicate, connect, cooperate and coordinate. The reason this revolution is so powerful is that humans evolved to be bottom up over the course of millions of years and we have literally, hundreds of genes that make us bottom up.

My book, The Bottom-up Revolution, (Beaufort Books) explores many of the dimensions of this revolution, looking at activism, politics, power, economics, arts, media, health, religion, patriarchy, civilization, business, organizing, networking, connection and disconnection, and the many ways the bottom-up revolution is affecting happiness and personal lives. I believe that understanding bottom-up and its relationship to top-down better empowers people to tap the latent, repressed bottom-up power they possess. Seeing through a bottom-up metaphoric "filter" opens peoples' eyes to seeing opportunities and possibilities they didn't see before.

I would love to share these ideas on bottom-up and top-down with your audience. Reply to my email and I will be happy to send you a PDF copy of the book or/and a print version. I'm also including a link here to a file which includes the introduction, the first three chapters of the book, and 50 endorsements for the book. Find out more at

Below I've included several of the endorsements from noted progressives.

"Just as The Tipping Point provides an explanation for big changes, Rob Kall offers a unified explanation for the magic behind the success of the biggest tech companies, the Arab Spring, Occupy and the social media revolution" An important, big picture, visionary approach weaving together technology, economics, evolution, science and personal relationshipseven happinessto describe a wave of change as significant as the invention of the printing press that is well under waya wave that could rescue the planet from the top-down system that afflicts the planet." Thom Hartmann, wrote the preface for the book and is host of the nationally syndicated Thom Hartmann Radio Program,

"Kall's well-researched book integrates knowledge from philosophy to economics and ecology. He shows us how, all over the world and across many fields of endeavor, we humans are organizing new and rewarding ways of acting for the common good.

Mary Pipher, psychologist , and #1 New York Times best-selling author of Reviving Ophelia and Writing to Change the World
