Greetings:

Thanks for visiting PeopleNow.org, formerly WeThePeopleNow.org.

This website describes and provides easy access to the various elements of the Nonpartisan, Nonhierarchic (no sacred rulers) Universal Movement and Strategic Plan for a Permanently Peaceful, Prosperous, Just, Sustainable World.

This Movement and Strategic Plan is a work in progress and by no means complete. It provides a framework into which additional actions and plans can be inserted. Your comments, suggestions, ideas and help to refine and implement this plan are welcomed and can be forwarded to PeopleNow.org via email to  refinetheplan@peoplenow.org and/or volunteer@peoplenow.org or fax 703-521-0849

This Universal Movement and Strategic Plan focuses on the U.S. Federal Government. Parallel Individual Movements and Plans for local, state and ultimately other nations are being developed beginning with Washington DC - see Highlights of the Movement and Plan for a Prosperous, Just, Sustainable Washington DC.

The primary purpose of this Universal Movement and Strategic Plan is to help coordinate, not manage, the efforts of the thousands of organizations, movements, campaigns, alliances and millions of individuals working on reform and change, most of whom are currently working either alone or in "stovepipe" organizations,  Many are duplicating each other’s  efforts, working on unneeded items, not doing many needed items and making  little real progress. Obviously, if we coordinate efforts better, share ideas and work from common plans, we will get much more done quicker with less total work.

The objectives of the Universal Movement and Strategic Plan include to permanently end poverty, homelessness, malnutrition, preventable diseases, wars, use of force, occupations, militarism, empire building, recessions, depressions, gross wealth and income inequalities, corporate executive control over public officials, environmental degradation, natural resource depletion, corruption, fraud, exploitations, state sponsored racism, the duress of finding work and providing for one's family and all other injustices.

PeopleNow.org with help from many individuals and organizations has thoroughly analyzed these injustices and other problems, their underlying causes and why despite our many  efforts, we have increasing poverty, the most severe and growing wealth inequality of all times, illegal wars and conflicts, unaddressed climate change and dysfunctional governments largely under the control of wealthy, corporation executives and lobbyists. This Movement and Strategic Plan is a result of these studies. In general:

We live in an Age of Abundance. There should be no poverty, malnutrition or homelessness anywhere in the world today

There should be no wars, conflicts or nuclear weapons. They are illegal

We are at a crossroad and despite our hard work, we progressive are behind and will be further behind if we do not work together from a common set of plans

If we continue with the current failed monetary and political systems and allow corporation executives to control our public servants, institutions and elections, we will have:


President Eisenhower on the Costs of War and the Military Industrial Complex (MIC)

President Eisenhower Quote on War Spending

"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed." —Dwight D. Eisenhower, "The Chance for Peace" speech, April 16, 1953

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist."
—Dwight D. Eisenhower, Farewell Address, January 17, 1961


If we work together, continually refine and implement this Movement and Strategic Plan  this plan, we will have a permanently peaceful, prosperous, just, sustainable world.

Thanks.

About Ron Fisher and why he created this Movement and Strategic Plan

Ron Fisher, honors graduate of the Naval Academy with a Master’s Degree in business management, graduate of the Industrial College of the Armed Forces (ICAF) and retired Navy Captain, served on destroyers and nuclear submarines and was Executive Officer of both a nuclear attack and a ballistic missile submarine.  During his early years in the Navy, as collateral duties he served as a Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) Trial Counsel (prosecutor), Defense Counsel and as a Summary Court Martial (Judge for minor infractions of the UCMJ).

During the last half of naval career he worked as a project manager and engineer in shipyards on refueling overhauls of nuclear submarines and worldwide submarine repairs.   He also served in various logistics jobs in the Washington DC area. His awards include the Legion of Merit.

His post Navy career includes working for two defense contractor and founding and managing a very successful non-profit fire safety and survivability company described at www.dfpa.org and a service-disabled veteran-owned small business described at www.VetsSS.org both of which received government contracts. DFPA, under contract with DOD, prepared a report that conclusively determined that it would impossible to protect ships from determined terrorists.

For more information about Ron go to: http://www.ronfisherforcongress.com/about.htm and http://www.linkedin.com/pub/ron-fisher-captain-us-navy-retired/29/b71/a65

Ron says: "The last submarine I served on could have single-handedly destroyed over a hundred bases or medium size cities and killed millions of civilians in a very few minutes from thousands of miles away. At the time, I never thought or talked to anyone about the deaths, maiming and destruction that our submarine could have caused.  Happily, we never had to fire those missiles with real warheads on them. I now realize how horribly wrong, immoral and illegal all wars, occupations, violence, empire building and offensive weapons especially nuclear are.

I also realize how horribly wrong and unnecessary poverty, homelessness, hunger, unemployment, etc. are.

I am convinced that many others will come to understand this also and we will end poverty and rapidly phase out all offensive weapons systems, armed drones and nuclear power.” 

Ron has worked years learning about and trying to change the world.  His strategic plan shows how we can permanently end poverty and wars and transition to a peaceful and prosperous world.
