Democracy - Identification Friend or Foe IFF

We have launched this campaign to supplement certain costs associated with printing and an October mailing of our Democracy - Identification Friend/Foe (IFF) postcard as featured in this campaign's video. The  video provides a brief introduction to the thinking behind the IFF Quick Reference while Episode 5 of the Framing 2020 podcast provides an in depth description of how the IFF relates, to the Preamble of the United States Constitution, beginning at timecode [36:49]. That section of the podcast is titled: OODA Loops and the IFF - A cultural adaptation of the Identification Friend/Foe system.

In addition to the quick reference mailing, we hope the funding will help defray the cost of ongoing efforts to distribute Framing 2020 highlights (postcards) and transcripts (PDFs) to staffers within the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of federal, state, and local governments. We are also reaching out to influential people within the press to help raise the level of political discourse without becoming mired in the sophistries of excessively prominent, hyper-partisan career politicians.

The focus of the Framing 2020  podcast (www.Framing2020.com) is on comparing and contrasting partisanship and statesmanship, together with the features of authentic versus inauthentic democracies. It is a free briefing, presented without advertising, for a demographic that includes independent and undecided voters. To date, we have published six episodes of the eight part series. The seventh episode is currently in production and scheduled to publish during the first week of October with the eighth episode dropping in late December.

Two companion websites will be used to foster and maintain ongoing discussions about how to break a stranglehold the oligarchy currently has on struggling democracies across the globe. These discussions will be hosted at:

EOBC1st  (www.EOBC1st.org)

and

Intentional Consumerism  (www.IntentionalConsumerism.org)

In January of 2021, the sequel to Framing 2020 will be titled Roaring Twenties Reprise . The transcript for the new podcast's introduction is available at: www.RoaringTwentiesReprise.org

Any funds remaining after the covering the printing and postage for the October mailings will be used in the launch for Roaring Twenties Reprise.
