Press Release: The Open-Source Everything Manifesto – Transparency, Truth & Trust by Robert Steele Foreword by Howard Bloom « Public Intelligence Blog 2012-06-01


“As the US Government faces collapse from being too big, too secret, and too irresponsible, an insider with 30 years working across all aspects of the super-secret covert world provides a roadmap for public resilience and the restoration of our democracy. Former spy-turned hacker Robert David Steele empowers the public with The Open-Source Everything Manifesto, outlining not only the benefits of a more transparent government, but the steps the public can take in creating Open Society. The Open-Source Everything Manifesto is a distillation of former Reform Party Presidential candidate Robert David Steele life’s work: the transition from top-down secret command and control to a world of bottom-up, consensual, collective decision-making as a means to solve the major crises facing our world today. The book is intended to be a catalyst for citizen dialog and deliberation, and for inspiring the continued evolution of a nation in which all citizens realize our shared aspiration of direct democracy—informed participatory democracy. According to Steele, the future of intelligence is not secret, not federal, and not expensive. It is about transparency, truth, and trust among our local to global collective. Only ‘open’ is scalable.  With a foreword from bestselling author Howard Bloom, Open-Source Everything is a manifesto for creating a prosperous world at peace, a world that works for one hundred percent of humanity. As we strive to recover from the closed world corruption and secrecy that has enabled massive fraud within governments, banks, corporations, and even non-profits and universities, this timely book is a manifesto for liberation—not just open technology, but open everything.”
