Knowing that the ‘Government-corporation-military complex-Greed Machine’ does not have our interests and health as concerns, the people have been meeting in public open forums across the world, using horizontal democracy methodologies to figure out how They themselves can solve their local problems and develop future plans. To imagine a future city you want, and to blend it with the communal vision, is to activate the manifestation of this dream.

In terms of eConomics, a more open system would see less middle men and more local/alternative currencies being used.
