“If there is technological advance without social advance, there is, almost automatically, an increase in human misery, in impoverishment.” –Michael Harrington
Social Advance is being developed as a citizens action organization open to members of any or no political party. Our goals are:
- Moving power from the alliance of big government and big business to an active citizenry.
- Moving the economy from profit seeking and continual growth to caring for the planet and for each other.
- Moving elections from a two-party system dependent on big donors to an open political system responsive to voters.
- Moving social relations from domination over others by violence and intimidation to respect for the rights of all people.
Our primary tactics will include:
- Informing, educating, and activating the public with an affiliated online news and information service;
- Endorsing, supporting, and recruiting candidates for public office best able to advance our agenda; and
- Persuading public officials by using lobbying and other methods.
