              Government of the parties, by the parties, and for the parties -is this what the Framers of the Constitution designed? Is this the fate of the American Republic? Fewer than 5 percent of Americans today know that the party system is not in the Constitution. The Framers loathed pol...itical parties, and the sovereign position they designed for the American people-to rule over all parties and interest groups through our elected representatives-has been stripped from us. The Right to Nominate unveils this fundamental dysfunction that now permeates every aspect of American government. We the people have been so enfeebled by our loss of sovereignty that we are now helpless to stop politicians from shutting down our government or even bankrupting our country. Though the Constitution was purposely written to stop political parties from taking over government, today fewer than 1 percent of the people know where those antiparty clauses are. By exploiting one weakness in the framers' magnificent design, the parties have stolen the American people's sovereignty by quietly transforming the people's representatives into party representatives. The Right to Nominate shows how they did it, and what the terrible consequences have been. The Right to Nominate presents a simple but revolutionary answer for the political rebirth of America-for breaking the chokehold of party control, for the return of the people's sovereignty, and for the triumph of representative government. Two hundred years of electoral experience are distilled to reveal the missing cornerstone of representative government, the unredeemed right of the American people: the right to nominate. Amendment XXVIII, offered here, will establish a Constitutional mechanism for the people to nominate nonparty candidates, breaking the parties' stranglehold over elections by opening up more rights and more freedom for Americans.

              Lighting the Way: An Anthology of Short Plays About the Climate Crisis (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Lighting the Way: An Anthology of Short Plays About the Climate Crisis includes 49 inspiring plays by writers from around the world. The plays were commissioned for Climate Change Theatre Action 2019, a global distributed theatre festival that coincided with the 25th United Natio...ns Conference of the Parties (COP 25) held in Madrid, Spain under the presidency of the Chilean government. Responding to a prompt asking them to give center stage to the unsung climate warriors and climate heroes who are lighting the way toward a just and sustainable future, the writers offer a diversity of perspectives and artistic approaches to telling the stories of those who are making a positive impact. Whether exploring the definition of climate heroism, new technologies like mango leather, or giving legal rights to Nature, the plays go beyond the dystopian worlds and apocalyptic scenarios favored by blockbuster movies and sci-fi novels to tell nuanced and empowering stories - stories that give us the courage to get up in the morning and fight for the world we all deserve. Included in this anthology are plays by Hassan Abdulrazzak, Elaine Avila, Chantal Bilodeau, Yolanda Bonnell, Philip Braithwaite, Damon Chua, Paula Cizmar, Hanna Cormick, Derek Davidson, Sunny Drake, Clare Duffy, Brian Dykstra, Alister Emerson, Georgina Escobar, David Finnigan, David Geary, Nelson Gray, Jordan Hall, Kamil Haque, Monica Hoth, Zainabu Jallo, Vinicius Jatoba, Vitor Jatoba, Marcia Johnson, MaryAnn Karanja, Andrea Lepcio, Joan Lipkin, Philip Luswata, Abhishek Majumdar, Julie McKee, Giovanni Ortega, Mary Kathryn Nagle, Lana Nasser, Yvette Nolan, Matthew Paul Olmos, Corey Payette, Katie Pearl, Shy Richardson and Karina Yager, Kiana Rivera, Madeline Sayet, Stephen Sewell, Lena Simic with Neal and Sid Anderson, Caridad Svich, Elspeth Tilley, Peterson Toscano, Mike van Graan, Meaza Worku, Marcus Youssef, and Nathan Yungerberg.
