The best thing for everyone would be if every MP and Party we have stood down and agreed to never stand again. The problem is, big money would just replace them

There is a twisted hilarity to hearing the words come from your own mouth and almost watching them solidify as they cross the air, forming the sentence ‘Out of the two candidates running to be PM, Boris is by far the better choice’.

The problem for us all, is that when the choices you have from an entire Parliament and political system are so desperately bad, you at some point have to recognise that without a genuine alternative – rather than just another politician who looks and sounds different, and may well wear a different colored badge – we have actually reached the point in the downward spiral of this bolted-shut ecosystem where every change is just going to compound the problems and make everything worse.

Yes, the reality is that stark!

Whilst we cannot vote for a real Polternative, Boris and the entire muppet show or wannabes and out-of-touchies that surround him on all sides of the so-called political divide, are all that we can choose from. And this grim pool of self-servants will continue to block every seat to our Parliament until the disasters they are collectively responsible for have fully unfolded, and all of us outside of the Westminster bubble have woken up to reality and accepted that they no longer are the de facto choice.

We must wait, because they will not do the decent thing and walk away, as they ALL really now should. To do so would require them all to be very big and to have a level of self-awareness that is clearly absent, as the reality is that the UK would otherwise be nowhere near the situation that we now are in. Knocking on the door of a catastrophic downturn that may well signify the UKs role in the end of an entire world epoch, as we now arguably are.

However, this imaginary moment or lapse from their usual reason would be wasted if it were to happen today, as the big money that influences and controls everything that all of our standing politicians already do, would simply fill the void with other stooges who would do exactly whatever the money wanted them to do.

Sooner or later, we are all going to realise that the only way to break this seemingly perpetual cycle, where life is always dictated by how those in power, with influence or with great wealth believe it should be, will be to turn the entire top-down system on its head. To restore and rebuild our democracy with a focus on localism in its truest sense, from the grassroots up, and create a system of governance that puts human beings, life, the way we live, balance and fairness at the forefront of all public policy. You know; the way it should have always been!

This Money and Greed obsessed world wasn’t the only option. The alternative has always been with us, hiding in plain sight

Perhaps the most deceptive part of the reality we live in is the idea that the money and greed obsessed world and the way that it functions and has taken over everything around us is and has only ever been the only available choice.

To be fair to many, the intoxicating way in which a world that perpetrates self-interest at every turn works, leaves the option to see the mechanics of the deceptive lie and the myths upon which our whole way of being sits, very difficult to see, and even harder to believe for those who genuinely can.

In fact, the level of self-awareness that it takes not only to understand but also accept the role that each and every one of us is guilty of playing in this very unfair and imbalanced form of life is indeed the antithesis of everything this whole system has been constructed to be and how it governs and influences every part of our lives.

However, just because we cannot see the alternative, doesn’t mean that it isn’t there.

It doesn’t mean that the alternative to all this isn’t available to us right now.

It doesn’t mean that the alternative to this world hasn’t been a genuine option for us, all the way along.

Money is the lifeblood of this upside-down world and that lifeblood floods our heads when we are hanging from our feet

What we fail to realise and understand, is that in an upside down world where all things money and material have become the benchmarks upon  which we qualify each and every aspect of life, it simply doesn’t matter what your tribe, your group or your politics are, because we are all operating upside down.

In this upside-down world, where we unconsciously perceive benefits from the differences that we believe to exist materially between us, every value we have is completely upside down or belly up. So the failure of one is the failure of all and failure for any one of us is exactly the same thing.

Selfishness and self-interest are borne of exactly the same value set, whether they are politically left, politically right or sat in the so-called political centre ground that sits in between.

It is only the forms in which that selfishness and self-interest is manifested, interpreted and perceived that is different, whilst the outcome for individuals, communities and the country alike, are exactly the same things.

This is a world where nobody wins – not even the elites who think they control everything. Because when any part of a world that operates on a values system that is upside down continues to exist, it is inevitable that it will always pull everything and everyone back to earth in a journey that will always end with a crash or a bang.

The Basic Living Standard is the practical living formula for a people centric, vales-based world that is balanced and fair to everyone in each and every part of life

July 5, 2022 2 comments

Success and results are always related to the use of formulas, whether it be in the form of an algorithm or what we learn through our experiences in life.

Creating and maintaining a people-centric and values-based world is no different, and the Basic Living Standard is the formula that once adopted universally will lead to a fair, balanced and values-centric life.

The Basic Living Standard can be defined as:

Adults, working a full working week in any job at any level, must be able to feed, house, clothe and provide adequately for their own transport needs, whilst providing basic necessities such as communication themselves, without the need for credit, loans, benefits or third-party support of any kind.

A Systemic and Financial Collapse is now inevitable, but a Great Reset as the WEF see it is not. We can define our own future, but it means doing politics like we have never done democracy before

If you have taken a close, objective view of every part of the Government response to the Covid Pandemic, you will see just how much power and influence can be brought to bear on normal people, by politicians and government officers when they want to use manipulation to bend people to their will.

With months passed since the end of Social Distancing measures, there are still many people who believe everything they were told about the risks of Covid. So much so, that they continue to allow fear of the virus to dictate how they live their lives when there is no need to do so.

Do consider your own experience of how messages from the Government and the Establishment were used to control the public in a situation that existed purely because the politicians we have are incompetent, were afraid, and thought that control was the only way they could lead.

The fear of politicians on all sides of Politics drove the Government response. It directly led to them making decision after decision that has contributed to the cost-of-living crisis we are fast descending into now, along with the inevitable financial and systemic collapse that is on its way.

The unavoidable collapse we are facing was supercharged by the Government response to Covid. But it has also been pushed massively by the response to the War in Ukraine and by Brexit before.

The Government responses to all three of these world-influencing events have catalysed the coming collapse. None of them alone or together were the actual cause.

The cause of the coming collapse are the ideals that have driven the way that everything around us has worked and has been governed for decades.

The entire Top-Down system has always been about putting the interests of those at the top first in all circumstances. Only lip service has ever paid to the problems that a greed-driven hierarchical structure inevitably causes for everyone else, and ever since the Gold Standard was abandoned and FIAT money was adopted in its place in 1971, it was inevitable that the piggies at the trough would keep going further and further with the aim of accumulating as much wealth as they can.

The people who have been controlling and driving the system that has enriched them at our collective cost, know only too well that the system of governance they influenced into being and developed always had a terminal flaw.

The flaw in this darkest chapter of a self-interest and greed-driven system was the inevitable growth of income inequality and with it, the rich – poor divide.  

Those of their number who have been clever enough to come up for air, knew that in time, the mechanics of their self-serving system would push that divide too far. That through a systemic collapse that would likely involve complete societal breakdown, their system as it stood would meet its end.

The people responsible are the world elites. They come together in organisations that we know of such as the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). So-called Public Bodies that have become the sanitised or ‘acceptable’ face of everything their self-interest is really all about.

They have known for many years that their system and the way that it functions would come to its end. But in the same way that Government rolled out its narrative to control all of us during the Covid Pandemic, the Worlds elites have been developing narrative about ‘The Great Reset’ to establish the idea in the public consciousness that their control both through and beyond the collapse that they created, is already a done deal or an inevitable thing.

But the elites never banked on Brexit, Covid or Ukraine. They certainly didn’t factor in the knee jerk way that governments such as ours would react, looking to the creation of non-existent money to solve all the problems that they faced, in the very unimaginative and unnecessary ways that they did.

The alarm bells started ringing just as soon as the Covid Virus emerged. They went into a frenzy once Government responses to the Pandemic and the Lockdowns began.

Those at the top knew they were out of time. That is why the amount of propaganda being pumped out of Switzerland began flowing at what feels like a constant rate.

The elites have always known what is coming. It was always just the question of when and not if.

The elites know what a systemic collapse will mean.

The elites know that the only way that they have any chance of remaining at the top is by creating leverage through systems of societal control that are aimed to maintain their position throughout the collapse, so that they can then ensure they dictate the ‘resetting’ of everything so that they maintain the Top-Down structure within the new world that follows beyond.

However, the elites also know that the power they have to succeed in their aims comes down to everything that we already know and that we continue to believe.

Right now, all the things that the WEF and mouthpiece Klaus Schwab have talked about really could happen. Not because anything they have planned is inevitable. But because we could easily miss the opportunity to take control of what happens during the collapse and The Great Reset, and because we fail to make the Great Reset (or whatever you are comfortable calling it) our own.

Everyone in power today, is tied into the Top-Down hierarchy that swirls around and fuels the whole system that tips its hat to the worlds elites.

Many of our Politicians don’t even know what they are doing or what they are really doing it all for. Pretty much everyone and everything is coin operated at the top!

There is no original thinking. No real leadership. And worst of all, no care or consideration for the lives of real people driving this Country – as in a democracy there always should be.

Today normal people are nothing but playthings at best. Slaves within a financial or wealth-related prison at worst.

For many, whole lifetimes revolve around an unnecessary fight just to be able to live.

Many of us do see the wrongs of what is happening, even if we don’t really understand why. Some of us even know who are to blame, but see it as a conspiracy, rather than being the result of the way that any small minded and selfish person would behave if they had the same wealth, opportunities and power that these very self-obsessed people have, and wanted to maintain all of it at any cost.

The existential risk to our future – as we face challenges that none of us have ever experienced – is that we will keep falling back on the same people and the same ideas to try and change things, in the very same ways that we have always done before.

Instead of accepting that we must all embrace a very new way of doing politics that puts people first and functions from the grassroots-up, we are in danger of falling back on what feels comfortable, relying on personalities, individuals with a loud voice or anyone who promotes a message that suggests the same as we’ve always had before: Only they know how to lead. Only they know what’s best. Only they and their own set of special chums have the secret formula for success in a system that has already closed its doors to them.

Approaching political change with the tried and tested formulas that have always failed to break into or influence our political system before.

Doing so again will only help maintain positions for the same self-interested politicians we already have in power or waiting to bask in it – whether they are Left, Right, Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat, or are motivated just the same with a different name.

There are many false prophets who are talking up change to us today. But they are quietly linking up with the same old faces, the same old stories and the same old motives as all the people who have wronged us have done so before.

The more obvious are groups like Tony Blair’s ‘The Britain Project’. But then there are many others like those who missed the realities of single-issue politics who have been left over from the Brexit movement too.

What they share in common is a hope that they can become some kind of phoenix that emerges from the ashes of an already broken system, that will work better once they lead it. They are unaware that their current behaviour and outlook amounts to little more than the same sum total as the motives of the ‘leadership’ we have already got.

However well intended any of them might look, their motivations and failure to connect with real people or even read the room will only help to make the strategies of the WEF and those around it all the more secure.

This isn’t to say that none of them have anything to offer us. It is simply the case that no public representative will be putting any of our needs first, if the system they work within and benefit from is based on ‘Top-Down’.

If you really want to experience the genuine freedom that only independence from a system of governance based on material wealth can bring – before the opportunity is lost, you MUST embrace your own Power first.

Now is the time to collaborate and contribute to your community with everything you have the ability to give.

Everyone is waiting for someone else to come up with a plan. But the plan we are on the arse end of right now, was someone else’s plan too.

If we don’t come together and make a new grassroots/up, community-based form of politics and system of governance work, the somebody else will do it for us.

The WEF and the Worlds elites will continue to live gilded lives. But their ever-increasing fear of what will happen when enough of us do wake up to the myths they have created, will drive them to use every form of new technology they can in order to increasingly control our lives.

If you think that life is shit now. Wait and see how you feel about everything then.

We are approaching the crossroads and the way out will soon be here.

But there is no easy option when it comes to the road to real change.

A fair and balanced system of governance that works for and on behalf of everyone is not the easy road.

What works for everyone fairly will not be represented by anyone or anything that feels familiar, makes feel comfortable, or makes you feel like you are the one on top before even the slightest amount of work has been done.

A happy future is about having faith in yourself, the people immediately around you and taking a massive leap into what appears to be the great unknown.

Are you ready to embrace and take yours?

The Basic Living Standard (BLS) | How it works in practical terms | The BLS Wage (BLSW)

The Basic Living Standard (BLS) functions on the proportional division of what a working adult would earn for the equivalent of a working week in the lowest paid role.

The BLS Wage must itself always equate or be equal to the minimum amount necessary for that same adult to live safely, securely and healthily in a self-sustainable way, without the need of any kind of subsidy, or the requirement to engage in debt of any kind.

It is likely that the immediate thought of many reading this will be something along the lines of ‘But that’s not the way that wages work. We get paid and then we see what we can afford!’ – or something like that.

But this is the thinking of the old age. It is the thinking of the system and the governance that we are now leaving. It is the thinking of a system that is about what’s best for somebody somewhere else. It is the thinking that always prioritises someone other than us – all too often without you, me or any of us realising that’s the way that it always works.

Once we have set the framework that says the first rule of the new system will always be the principle of the BLS Wage, then everything that relates to or relies upon it, will have to redirect, recalculate, reform, reset and even restore.

The BLS and The BLS Wage will mean that people and personal freedom through material independence will ultimately be assured.

The BLS Wage and The Basic Living Standard will dictate that greed or the accumulation of wealth of any kind, will no longer lead the way for everyone in how they conduct their lives.

Personal Freedom through material independence is how life should always be.

This broken system that is hurting us all, has a name: It’s called ‘Top-Down’

If you want to live in a different kind of world, where everyone is valued for who they really are and not what they have or what they can afford, it’s important to recognise what the building blocks that will make that world real will look like.

It’s also very important to recognise what represents the key tenets and elements of the old world, and the thinking that will keep the majority disadvantaged in some way, whilst benefits of every kind continue to be funneled towards those either at or very near the very top.

The system that we have and that we are in the process of leaving, functions with people in positions of power and responsibility for the lives of others. People who believe that they are special and behave as if they are special in some way.

It doesn’t matter what the behaviour, skill or attribute might be that makes them believe they are special, whether its knowledge, popularity, position or wealth. If any person of group of people who have influence over or responsibility for others believe that they are different and better than those other people in any way, the system that they are influencing will always be about them and never about anyone else.

The people with power and influence who consider themselves above others, look down on everyone that they believe they have that power or influence over. This is the very basic mechanics of the system of ‘Top-Down’.

In its broader sense, ‘Top-Down’ is a hierarchical system. Power is always funneled from the many to the few above them. Then from the few to the one or two that are then above.

The process can and does repeat itself over and over again and often resembles the shape of a pyramid.

It’s a relationship that thrives on the creation of distance. Because those with power we are in direct contact with and easily able to access in a way where they listen, are often much further away from those that they themselves are subservient to. This means that those who we should most be able to rely on to do what’s best for us rarely even understand the rules, diktats and instructions that come from their own hierarchy ‘above’.

You will recognise those who are beholden to the ‘Top-Down’ system, because they are always better in some way than us. They thrive on peddling the myth that there are those ‘in the know’ and that they have special skills or special knowledge. When in fact all their ‘position’ or ‘role’ does is give them an excuse to avoid truth or avoid make decisions based solely in the moment and on doing only what is right for everyone – not just their masters or themselves.

Question the integrity and values of anyone who presents themselves as a leader at any level, who has come from management within a large company or corporate structure, has been in a leadership role within community organisations or within local councils, or has been a politician and member of one of the well-known parties and not demonstrated an ability once elected, to stand out without their party on their own.

Beware the people who have said a few things that have struck chords with some people and given them what appears to be great popularity. Popularity and leadership skills in the untested are usually two very distant things.

Above all, be on your guard against anyone who tells you they have knowledge and networks but cannot give a credible and open overview of what they are or how they attained them. Run a mile from anyone whose credibility as a leader rests purely on a name or who they are directly linked as nepotism is one of the most insidiously destructive and corrupt elements of the Top-Down system by far.

The Withdrawal of Collective Consent: Don’t riot or engage in civil unrest. Start building our new fair and balanced future for everyone instead

If you are of voting age in the UK (18 years or older), the chances are that you will be able to remember the 2011 Riots, which are sometimes referred to as the London Riots too.

During a period of 5 days and nights that August, many people took to the streets in different places and engaged in civil unrest.

You didn’t have to be there or in the middle of a riot, or anywhere near a shop being looted or burned to the ground, to be shocked, concerned or frightened by what you could see was going on.

It doesn’t seem normal or rational for people to behave this way. But we all need to understand that when fear and desperation leads beyond frustration to anger, and people no longer believe they have anything else to lose, there is no logic, no form of words and no out-of-the-moment promise that can be made to them, that will make the desire they have to act irrationally or without care, go away.

If people in the area you live begin to engage in any form of civil unrest, or you yourself feel desperate enough to join any group of people which has taken to the streets, please think about the point that we have all already collectively reached, and what we can all do together constructively without damaging anything or the relationships that we have with anyone, who or that can become part of the new system we can build from what we must now replace.

You may see policemen, paramedics, firefighters, soldiers and public sector representatives as representatives of the system. But they are real people behind their badges or uniform. People just the same as you and I.

We do not need to destroy anything or hurt anyone else to achieve change and to create a new system. We only have to withdraw our collective consent from the one that we must replace.

Nobody has to continue working for the existing system. But it will help us all if those who have public responsibility continue to fulfil the genuine purposes of their roles, and help and protect all others, whilst sense begins to be made of what we all need to do to ensure that above everything, each and every one of us is safe, has shelter and the things we need, and has access to enough of the basic essentials with the priority always given to basic foods.

A new, fair and balanced system, can only be built from the Grassroots-Up

There is no part of the system we have today or the governance framework that allows it to function and dictate every part of our life, that has been left untouched by somebody somewhere changing it to further or to protect their own interests in some way.

Whether it has been local public service provision, local interpretation of planning law, the way non-government organisations are run, the rules that govern imports, exports and supply chains, or how public policy is designed by civil servants in Westminster, EVERYTHING at EVERY LEVEL has been built to serve the mechanics of a system that is Top-Down.

If you are anywhere in this hierarchy or pyramid at a level which is below the top, it has only worked for you by giving you things you have been led to believe you need, but which you actually want that are outside of yourself.

The price will have been that to some degree or another, you will have forgotten something or perhaps everything about real life, real values and the fundamental building blocks of who you really are.

How we interact with others and with everything in the world outside of us, is a mirror image of the person inside us at that very moment. Its who we believe we really are at that time.

If you pause and take that in, you may begin to see the part that everyone has played in allowing the world to become the place that it is today.

However, rather than dwelling on the things you’ve said to others, or the things you have or haven’t done, the way to put that behind you and play a role in shaping a world that is fair, balanced and works in the best interests of everyone, is to put the value back into everything in your life, and make everything that feeds into your life experience have meaning. This is not only your first building block of a new life for you, it’s the very first step towards the creation of the new world around us, beginning by changing the way we think about everything around us. Its how the old world will be replaced.

YOU ARE THE GRASSROOTS – no matter who you are, where you come from, or what you have or haven’t already done.

Before anything else, it is you, the Grassroots that must come together as neighbourhoods and then as communities. We can then work together to rediscover, reinvent and reinterpret localised systems that work for and on behalf of everybody. Always prioritizing peoples needs before anything else, and not what money or profit can be accumulated, or what glory, status, power or influence can be attained.

Top-Down is over. It’s all about Grassroots-Up. And it’s the people who are the GRASSROOTS who must always come first.

Thank you for your support – Here’s the best way to get value from Levelling Level:

April 11, 2022 Leave a comment

Before anything, a big thank you to everyone who has visited Levelling Level here (in its Blog form) or has already downloaded the Book.

Since I began to publish the Book broken down into blogs last Tuesday, the number of visits has been more than I had expected. I have really appreciated the likes received from some of you, that have reflected a lot of interest in pages such as Food: What we need and The Basic Living Standard. This has been rather heartening, bearing in mind that creating and then maintaining The Basic Living Standard is what Levelling Level is ultimately all about.

Clearly, many of the ideas and suggestions I have made in Levelling Level stand up on their own at first glance, to those of us who are already receptive in any relevant way to the need for change.

Yet I am acutely aware that the complexity of the problems that we all face together are such that we cannot and will not succeed in fixing them or implementing real solutions that will work, unless we take a very different approach to the one that has led us here. We must seek to address each and every problem in its own right, but also in relation to each and every other problem, one-by-one and one-and-all, as never before.

The fact that even people who have a vested interest in rejecting a Basic Living Standard do at least unconsciously appreciate how it would work was illustrated very well to me just yesterday, when I went out for an early morning walk. Bumping into a very successful business owner who I have got to know by passing the time of day, the subject of us not meeting over the past 6 weeks came up and I told him that I had been writing and publishing the Levelling Level Book.

Their rejection of the idea that everyone should have a fighting chance of success as a stepping off point, instead of so many of us having lives that revolve only around a lifetime of fighting to keep our heads above water (and in many cases failing, as the system has developed to so easily allow us to do) was palpable, just because they had experienced a very challenging start to life.

Once we had passed the accusation that I could only propose such things because of the privileged position that I now had, and that had been put to bed by referencing the back story that I have had, we very quickly moved into a number of suggestions that they were making – which are a natural follow through of where we really are all now heading – but which from their current perspective, they were adamant would never be practical or work.

As things still appear to be for many people today, they certainly appear to have a point. The intrinsic values crisscrossing society are all based on what we have or what we can get after all.

In fact, before starting only to touch the nuts and bolts of what Levelling Level is really about, I had already warned them that they might find what I was about to say controversial in some way. And that’s why I have written the whole proposal, suggestion or philosophy that is Levelling Level in the way that I have.

Levelling Level is about the present, immediate and longer-term future of my Country, The UK. But the principles and suggestions are relevant to wherever you live or may be.

Levelling Level is written as a book that journeys through how we got to where we are today. It covers the role that events such as Brexit, Covid and Ukraine have played as the catalysts of a massive change that has been in development over decades. It then discusses how we will have to change the way that we live and everything that we are used to in order to survive and manage through the challenges and difficulties that we will experience in many forms as events force everything we know to change.

Levelling Level reaches its conclusion discussing how we can harness the learning from the experience that this challenging time will provide us to mould a better way of living for ourselves, whilst ensuring that there is a genuine safety net in place to ensure that nobody is from that point ever left behind.

Through the lens of the very material and money-oriented world that still surrounds us, the numbers of people receptive to the change now required may be growing. But for the majority, that need for that change will not be accepted or real, until events have led them personally to experience the pain that lies ahead.

When that pain arrives, it is essential that we harness the power of an opportunity to change life for the better that can only come at that flashpoint or seminal moment. A point in time when everyone will know and accept that the way we have been living and treating each other is unsustainable and can no longer go on.

From this perspective alone, I will make a suggestion: That any of you who are already receptive to the level of change that events and circumstances will soon force us all to embrace, will benefit most from reading Levelling Level in its original book form.

Sharing Levelling Level has never been about making money or charging any fees. The Book for Kindle is modestly priced, and I will be happy to provide a PDF copy of the text by e-mail, Free Of Charge, in receipt to any legitimate request. (Please email levellinglevel@gmail.com )

Levelling Level is linked on Twitter (@levellinglevel) and Facebook (@levellinglevel) and I would really appreciate your follows, likes, shares and your taking the time to ask questions or make comments that might be helpful to all of us in some way.

Thanks again for reading. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

Levelling Level | The Return to Values

Values and self-worth reflect in the way that we interact with others and how we come together with respect and care for others as a community.

Levelling Level is a way of being that recognises the only way to achieve and maintain the outcome of having a system that is fair and balanced for us all as individuals and as a community, is to create and secure a system that is fair to the poorest and most vulnerable individuals within our society before anything else.

Levelling Level | What Levelling Level will look like

When a system exists that is balanced and fair for all, many of the societal problems that exist and that nobody seems to be able to fix today, will simply vanish or quickly go away.

Poverty, debt, inflation, knife crime, antisocial behaviour, the cost of living, educational standards, drug abuse, theft, restricted social mobility, prejudices, political disenfranchisement, fake news, the lack of community, the failure of public services AND many other issues will be addressed, when enough people understand, accept and are ready embrace the inevitable change that will allow us to help others as we go through a process of helping ourselves.

Levelling Level is all about creating a system that takes care of every individual, every person in the same way no matter how many degrees of separation lie between us.

When we get it right for everyone else, it all comes full circle, and we get it right for ourselves.

No, this is not wishful thinking. It is about giving everyone at every age and from every background the reason to rediscover and give them back a sense of value and self-worth.

Levelling Level | Government from the grassroots up

We quite literally need to look at every part of government and what the public sector does, and rethink who should be making the decisions about how they function and what they do, based on the who, the why, the what, and with only the delivery itself becoming an issue of cost.

The technology now exists to ensure that even if operational delivery is implemented at a broader level or by a service delivery organisation of some kind, the decisions about that delivery can now be taken as locally as it is possible for them to be.

Levelling Level | We should all be able to access and communicate with the Politicians making decisions on our behalf

The argument that we can no longer have free access to top politicians because it is not safe for them, underpins the reality that power has now been focused and concentrated too far away from us and towards too few for the decisions that affect us every day to make any real sense to those who are supposed to be solving our problems.

When decisions that have meaning in our life are taken by people we can access and talk to, we feel and have a much greater sense of responsibility and of being in control. Yes, there will always be exceptions, and there will always be people at every level of government or who have responsibility who will be intoxicated by any power and influence that they have got.

But by bringing every decision back to the level of community or the relevant level where people and businesses can actually see and feel their influence at work or see the real-life stories and experience that give them the opportunity to learn and think differently, society will work better for us all.

Levelling Level | Governance from the Community up; not from Westminster down

As you read through this book, you are increasingly likely to see that there is a vein of commonalty running through many of the issues or existing policies that Levelling Level looks to unpick.

That commonality is the mechanics of a top-down, hierarchical or centralised structure.
