SAP Shadow Cabinetry
This film, Wlad's campaign and the SAP conceit in general aim to end Big Body dominion, redeem human sovereignty and radically decentralize power. In other words, we target the orderly withering of the state (and its ruling corporate bodies) that Marx, Gandhi and Jefferson all dreamed about but didn’t quite know how to achieve.
These are all formidable goals, but the steepest challenge facing America's dark horse candidates is the public's inability to imagine an outsider's administration or how it could ever get anything done.
SInce SAP proposes leadership without bribes, fear or violence and a long forgotten vision of populist democracy, we're often asked how we hope to govern without huge orgs behind us or even cruder forms of force. We can't bare all our secrets this early in the film, but we can tell you a bit about Shadow Cabinetry, Green T and how this all will work.
Beyond Caligari's Corporate Cabinets
If we are going to pretend people sovereign again, they will need and deserve the best counsel for their decisions and, yes indeed, a trusted cabinet. Since it is famously easy to lead folks to places they already want to go—destinations like freedom, peace, and rapture, even a shadow cabinet that can get them there could wield enormous power.
Consider SAP's imaginal cabinet members below and the synergistic power of their ideas. All answer majoritarian desires according to polls, but all are feared or loathed by the corporate elite and deftly excised from the so-called national conversation, especially its electoral debates.
The Green T Prescription
Truth reveals our history and the lessons of battles lost. Tools include fresh tactics and strategems, including fierce new memes. And Big T or testosterone is simply shorthand for a body politic's courage levels, lust for life and evolutionary vitality.
Such are the secret ingredients of SAP's Green T as a political elixer and eco-social remedy. SAP plans to jolt the zeitgeist and electoral charade with Green T powers this year and we need little more than a twitter feed and a youtube channel to start releasing these ideas and get the treatment underway.
Shadow Cabinet Design
Since decentralization and diversity are such crucial campaign themes, Wlad's administration will set the first example by distributing its own internal powers and presenting its policy briefings directly to the sovereign people on line
All cabinet departments will thus be led by a troika of secretaries, two selected by the chief exec and the third picked by the initial two. (So instead of a Secretary, Undersecretary, and Deputy Secretary of Labor, we shall have three coequal secretaries each with an equal voice, vote and salary.)
Their chief responsibility is to inform the people of issues deserving their immediate attention and to offer DIY courses of action that strengthen our freedoms, security and well-being.
SAP Briefings: Coming soon...
Each department troika will thus hold at least one biweekly online briefing that introduces the biggest crises and opportunities the nation faces in their respective fields and presents their suggestions for how we should proceed.
Briefings may include invited guests and other A/V material or simply three-way discussions that address urgent issues and citizen questions from the web.
Their goal is to spotlight the core problems we face in all areas of governance today and generate practical post-corporate solutions that citizens themselves can kickstart on their own.
