The Citizenism Project
Journey to Reclaim the Role of the Citizen in the Political Ecosystem
Pillar #1: We the People @ 250
Gross Flourishing Product
Theory of Change
The Citizenism Project theory of change builds on the fundamental democratic principle that the citizen is sovereign.
"The health of a democratic society may be measured by the quality of functions performed by private citizens." - Alexis de Tocqueville
Pillar # 2: WWJMD: What Would James Madison Do?
Symptoms and Diseases (Vices) of the US Political System
James Madison and Public Opinion
Our citizen oriented strategic plan is a roadmap for the journey to reclaim the role of the citizen within the political ecosystem.
It builds on the understanding of the first principles that were articulated in the Declaration of Independence and informed by the current challenges confronting the body politic.
The Citizenism Project contains a number of interconnected elements: initiatives, programs, and areas of focus that will be made public over the next few years.
We build on four pillars that will be introduced during the next five years:
What Would James Madison Do? WWJMD
Americanism and Our Civic Ritual of Freedom
Pillar #3: Americanism and Our Civic Ritual of Freedom
George Washington’s Farewell Address
The Civic Seder Ritual for Thanksgiving
Constitution Day: A Time to Reflect
The State of the Union
We invite anyone who shares our vision and mission to take part in our work, suggest topics, pose questions, write posts, and most importantly, contribute to the conversation.
