An interesting book, FreedomShift (2010) focuses on three shifts which, according to DeMille's thesis, - if taken - will lead to an environment that promotes Freedom. These three areas are: Entrepreneurship, Independents (as an alternative to the older two party division into Democrats and Republicans), and the building of New Tribes; especially virtual social networks that are built in the age of the Internet, and forming communities which learn from that which has worked in past and current tribal cultures.

Entrepreneurship is pretty self-explanatory, Independents are continuing to grow as people become more fed up with the current iteration of politics, the last area of focus, or choice as Mr. DeMille, puts it I find interesting.

The age of the Net and global reach has allowed groups of like-minded individuals to transcend national boundaries in a way that would have been unthinkable 20 to 30 years go; it makes me think of the related observation in a PLA publication (1999) of the rising importance of non-state actors; NGOs, social activist groups and so forth.

One slight, possible anachronism, I think though is the overly positive view of the freedom of individuals to band together on the Internet; this is in light of the current wave of censorship and cancel culture which has especially plagued previously free and open social platforms these past couple of years that simply did not exist a decade ago.

A worthwhile read, if possibly a bit dated, in the third section; I would very interested in an update to the third section in light of recent societal events and cultural shifts. ( )
