Beto Bait — a Letter to The Times

I am waiting for the right moment to advance my fifty year interest in creating #cybercommunities

Beto is said to need a BIG TICKET policy objective. This is the biggest ticket of all and no one else has grabbed it. Whoever does either wins or loses big.

Fantasy release — Beto O’Rourke thinks we could upend oil and automobiles and end up presiding over a nation that would lead the whole globe to a manufacturing renewal. That may be a bigger ticket item than anyone imagined but he is willing to combine his star power with the idea that the true culprit in today’s world is “being stuck with an economy that is destined to tank.”

O’Rourke thinks it is time to rebuild America, His plan to do so is not as much visionary as disruptive. It is an open question whether people will buy the idea. “That’s fine,” O’Rourke says “at least we will have a debate that could actually bring the country together.”

The heart of O’Rourke’s concept is the creation of communities that combine advanced high-tech and ideas drawn from everything from the Middle Ages to the latest Science Fiction.

The result would be a nation of walkable communities that integrate work, play, worship and commerce and a huge new industry to create the modular components of what would be a fifty year process of rebuilding the nation.

“We would be transiting from now into a viable future that would serve everyone, not just the one percent,” O’Rourke says.
