What People Are Saying

“Futurists and humanists Smyre and Richardson, along with an eclectic team, have taken a totally and totipotential novel approach – futures can be prepared for, change and complexity, as expected and natural, can be abided with tools AND human BESTs, and seamless transformations AND transitions can be better aligned, utilizing their mentoring.” Read more– Dr. Frank M.

“This is a fascinating and timely book that is sure to change the way you think about democracy. The book takes our democracies forward into something that our founding fathers never dreamed of. To be sure, the author’s words concerning the Second Enlightenment are epochal.” Read more– Steven H.

“What is underway – according to authors Smyre and Richardson – is a Second Enlightenment. Just as the 18th Century Enlightenment gave the Founders the intellectual and moral framework to create the constitution and governance structures, we now need to draw on recent thinking to forge a political model that will work in the 21st Century – a world that is connected, changing, shifting at an ever-increasing pace.” Read more.– Tim W.
