PUT YOUR BEST THINKING
AND INTENTIONS INTO ACTION
Mike Cohen, Candidate for Presidential
Nomination in 2004
asked about my candidacy
Why are you not forming a
political party to support your candidacy?
A major purpose of a political
party is to organize and demonstrate public support for a platform
and candidate and thereby gain further support for them. My platform
consists of learning to use and teach the Process to
meet our challenges, including the challenge to get people to
use the Process. Using the Process
can do this within the present political and social structure, including existing political parties.
A vast majority of Americans
full well know that we can not continue exploiting natural systems
in the environment and each other without increasing our troubles.
We have to add a component to our thinking that deals with this
issue. The opportunity my candidacy presents is to use the Process to demonstrate that it enables people to "walk their talk."
Since there are already a wide
range of parties operating. It is a waste of energy to repeat
what they have already established. If my platform and Process
makes sense, people's natural attractions to it will bring it
into existing parties. I encourage you to introduce the Process
and me to the party or institution that best represents your
viewpoint. Their experience with it will demonstrate that the
Process deserves their support.
The Process is known and respected because it helps us thoughtfully
makes a valuable contribution to contemporary life, not because
it is "sold" via the repetitive conditioning of advertising
and other media. Although such electioneering is effective, it
is not based on reason. Rather it is a form of subconscious programming
via repetition and glitz. It is costly and thereby usually only
available through and subject to the influence of those who have
money and power . Such leadership is part of our problems, not
