The world is long overdue for a completely new system of governance. If there was ever a need for political representation or a paternalistic and opaque authority, it has been removed by technology. Every political system we have tried has proven incapable of protecting human rights and dignity. Every political system we have tried has devolved into oligarchy. To effect the change we require immediately, to give individuals control and responsibility, to bring regional systems under regional governance, allow global collaboration and protect the heritage of future generations, we need a new political model.

About the author

Heather Marsh is a world-renowned philosopher and human rights activist whose work helped shape and accelerate international events like the 2011 15-M movement in Spain and the subsequent global Occupy Movement. Her views on power and organization, as well as her deep knowledge of global human rights issues, provided the backbone for the transition of the Anonymous collective into a global activist movement. She played a pivotal role in the early stages of Wikileaks in directing the focus of the organization's supporters onto human rights issues (and she left the organization in early 2012). She is the only person to have played a pivotal role in the formation of the three most influential movements of the last decade, Anonymous, Occupy and Wikileaks, as well as many more local movements worldwide. She has been featured at many global conferences and events and is also the only person to have ever had a talk censored by the Oxford Union.


In 2013, Marsh released the internationally acclaimed book, Binding Chaos, which deconstructs our current relationship with governance and the trade economy and offers a new pathway towards self-governance. She explores both idea based and action based mass collaboration, with her hands-on as well as theory-based experience making her the world's foremost expert in horizontal governance theory. The much anticipated second installment of the Binding Chaos theory,'The Creation of Me, Them, and Us', has just been released, along with the announcement of an upcoming twelve book series. She is published by MustRead Inc.
