People lack autonomy. Our survival depends on our ability to build large cooperative institutions. These institutions help us gather food, provide shelter, educate us, ethically direct us, and keep us from harming each other. Institutional structure prior to now has been bureaucratic, and the bureaucratic model has proven itself ineffective. Bureaucratic institutions will ultimately be replaced by Cellular Governmental Units, (CGUs)
We are smart enough to stop repeating what we know will not work, but old habits die hard. Bureaucratic cycles are predictable. The bureaucratic body serves the head. That service to the head becomes increasingly harmful to its supporters as the bureaucracy grows.
Amassing power is the primary role of a bureaucracy. Serving its majority is second, and lowest on the scale of things important to bureaucratic institutions is individuals’ happiness, health, and safety. As each bureaucracy grows, its efficiency diminishes and bureaucratic heads tend to pamper themselves at the expense of their charges. They “fiddle while Rome burns.”
This destructive inefficiency is unnecessary. Each layer of bureaucracy can be replaced with clear business cells (CBCs). The CBCs are responsible, only to their mission. The purpose of the mission is to serve individuals, the group, and improve the institution, in that order. They are paid for kindly and competently accomplishing a cellular mission which is a part of the institutional mission. An administrative CBC may be paid a similar amount as a technical CBC. People will seek employment in areas of need, and in areas that they have aptitude. Nobody will be paid less because of the decision to feed the poor, in leu of pampering the rich.
CGUs are to government what computers are to communication. Advances in civilization can no longer be robbed from our children. They have in their grasp the fruits of trees that were planted long ago, only this time, eating the fruit is a good thing.
