What is included with this book?


Robert David Steele is an author, strategist, analyst, reformer, and provocateur, and a leader in the global movement to connect bottom-up citizen wisdom with access to information in all languages across the globe. A "recovering spy," he was instrumental in inspiring ninety governments to adopt Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) that can be shared in lieu of secret intelligence that is risky, expensive, and limited. Steele has spent two decades advancing the ideas of Pierre Tielhard de Chardin, H. G. Wells, and Buckminster Fuller, among others, and spreading the idea that technology is not a substitute for thinking. He regards The Open Source Everything Manifestoas a distillation of his life's work, which is the movement from top-down secret command and control to fully embracing the world of bottom-up, consensual, collective decision-making as a means to solve the major crises facing our world today. Following the UN list of global threats to identify intelligence priorities, he sees the issues of poverty, disease, genocide, and environmental degradation as given perilously little attention in contrast to such high-profile concerns as terrorism. The Founding CEO of Open Source Solutions Network, Steele is the "intelligence minuteman" who has defined the eight tribes of intelligence as Academia, Civil Society, Commerce, Government, Law Enforcement, Media, Military, and Non-Governmental Organizations. He believes that reform across all these "tribes" is essential for a true revolution of integrity and openness. Part philosophy, part self-help, part citizen empowerment, and part professional intervention, The Open Source Everything Manifestois especially timely for the 2012 presidential elections and the national debate now emerging about legalized fraud (Wall Street and elective wars) and the need to restore integrity in both public and private sectors. As Richard Kerr, former Deputy Director of the CIA said: "Robert Steele storms into the core of intelligence issues without fear. The scope of his work is impressive and whether you agree with him or not, you cannot ignore what he says."
