Plan 2015: A new light for the future
By Scott Cole, Anchor Point
This goes out to all the people I love.
In the days of my youth
I was taught what it means to be a man.
Now I think the world
Has come of age.
And its time for all people
To make a stand.
I would love to change the world
And I know just what I’ll do,
I’ll leave it up to you.
Send this message to my brothers and sisters.
Let the whole world believe
They’re blind, deaf and dumb.
Someone has to change
the shape of things to come!
My vision of Alaska’s future
Is that of a new state.
Unique within the history
of the world.
Using a system of voting
Designed to give each citizen
A real belonging within it.
Using a concept that has never been
Presented in the past.
Technology is what makes it work.
We now can create a system
Where each person has their own voting site.
Designed for communicating ideas
And relaying problems
Creating a new form of communication
To give each citizen the opportunity
To express their ideas.
And then by compiling similar ideas
We can make better decisions
Creating a quickly evolving system
Controlled strictly by the people.
Thus creating more firm decisions
For all to see and stand by.
Imagine all the people of the world
Living life for the future.
Peace is ours for the taking.
And now I’m back to where I began.
Whisper words of wisdom.
Live well and prosper.
