What would a world look like where we win, where the system is seriously changed.

I believe the answer is a bottom up, connected, connection conscious culture and economy, moving away from a top down system/economy.

Let's start with this list of top down versus bottom up characteristics I've put together:

Some of the biggest factors among this list include:

1-getting rid of big and bigness.

Create laws and regulations that make it illegal for corporations to become too big, for billionaires to exist at all. Restrict ways that centralization, particularly with algorithmic controls, can be applied. The alternative to bigness is decentralized and localized.

We need to develop technologies and sciences of small. Fund business academicians to work with small businesses to develop new approaches to help them stay small while remaining successful, exploring how to avoid growth by merger or acquisition, exploring how to reap the benefits of economies of scale without creating bigger, centralized behemoths.

It's also about creating a cultural set of values where small is good and big is immoral, distasteful and offensive.

Change the way liberal think tanks and foundations think. We need new, better ways to support smaller, decentralized efforts, programs and groups. We need to develop new ways to make it easier to support 1000 small projects instead of ten big ones.

2-Ownership, Open Source, commons, and creative commons

Top down power tries to consolidate ownership of property as a way to build power. We need to take property back for the people and return it to the commons. That applies to land, patents, copyrights, businesses. We need more employee owned cooperatives and publicly owned utilities and companies. The Bernie Sanders campaign proved that socialism is an okay idea that has become accepted by a majority. That will grow as people reap the benefits.

3-Systemic, Ecological Consciousness and policy
