Reinventing The World, We Can Do Better, by Ben Korgen, highlights the stagnant repetition of ineffective leadership and how we can break free.
Hope Valley, RI, USA — Ben Korgen’s Reinventing The World, We Can Do Better defines history recycling leadership spawning repeating cycles of prosperity, poverty, tranquility and violence.
This book suggests we can escape this by preparing political leaders for recruiting idea people, harvesting ideas, filtering out the best ones and subjecting them to worldwide referendums.
Humans will need fresh ideas. People tend to elect leaders whose image is a stable, solid citizen who can govern the ship of state with a steady hand on the helm. However, idea people usually do not make good leaders. Their most valuable thoughts pop into their heads at random in ways that prospective voters perceive as erratic and undesirable in leadership positions.
Science, engineering and technology have long histories of racing forward with little or no recycled effort. They have accomplished this driven by leaders who realize that maintaining the forward momentum depends on accepting the inputs of idea people.
This book addresses needs for a worldwide effort by offering a sample path for testing, adopting or discarding for something better. This path includes methods of world-scale recruitment of idea people, harvesting ideas, filtering them to winnow out the most promising ones and debating their value before worldwide referendums for approval and implementation.
