How to turn the latent need of better, less expensive, transparent, responsible government into an urgent need that gets people involved for the long run? How to somehow possibly apply sales techniques to the job of selling another way (is there something that we can learn from the Seth Godins of the world?) since dry facts and bullet point campaigning haven't touched the emotions of machine voters the way tribal voting (eg.: I'm Black or Serb or Catholic and and Blacks Serbs Catholics always vote Democrat) or going with the vast majority since you're not cool if you don't (Republican's can win Lake County elections) have done?
Until we find a way to get people to realize they want better government, we'll get people like Blumenberg all the live long day.
