If you’ve read my book, The Happiest Corruption, Sleaze, Lies, & Suicide in a California Beach Town, or signed up for my online course, Double Dias: Adventures in Local Government, you’ll have picked up a message that runs through them, and through many of the links I’ve posted to books and Ted Talks.

- A public that has had enough and has the courage and generates enough people to stand and fight.
- A public willing to set aside gender, political, race, religious, and party divisions to fight together for honest representation.

- Engagement of the press and media on a state and national level.
- Engagement of political representatives up the line at the state and national level.
- Mobilization of individual groups and factions working together with a common goal—to replace the corruption with good government.
