Theme of communications
Go5.org is a little like a
neighborhood association. The theme of the organization
consists of harmonious interactive communications
amongst the general public. The secondary objective is
to discuss issues that pertain to the community. The
organization can be organized by zip code.
Experience harmonious interactive
communications with your neighbors. Establish
Learn more about your community and
provide protection in the neighborhood for children and
Establish a working relationship with the
police so we can help them to protect us.
Communities that interact together have
People are trustworthy and rational. We
trust a jury to make very important decisions.
Issues separate us in our private worlds.
In harmonious interactive communications, issues become
better understood. The controversial
aspect of issues is defused into a common understanding
of the variables and the unique differences amongst
The more we understand people around
us the more we understand ourselves because our own
comparison is based on other people.
We have gathered together in churches and
in neighborhood associations as citizens for many years.
The Go5 group is more like a neighborhood association
where each person will function in his or her group of 5
people like one member of the board of directors. Each
personís voice will be heard.
Discussion Groups Structure
Letís assume there are 50 members
showing up for a meeting. The leader gives a 2 minute
speech to open the meeting and start the theme of the
subject. At the end of 2 minutes (120 seconds) the
group will divide up into 10 groups of 5 people. One
person in each group is a moderator. The moderator asks
pre-established questions and prompts the other 4
members of the group to contribute equally to the
subject being discussed. The moderator is not allowed to
voice any opinions or supply personal information.
At the end of 25 minutes the group
gathers back together into one large group. Each of the
10 moderators will have 2 minutes to discuss the
findings of his or her group.
A secretary is appointed who can
take notes on what each moderator has to say. These
results will be posted on the Go5.com web site.
The last 4 minutes of the meeting
consists of the leader making a brief comment on the
meeting and announcing the subject for the next meeting.
Study is recommended for all meeting discussions.
Program reading material will be provided for the next
meeting for those without an Internet connection. Readings
will always be available on the 78749.com web site.
The groups can take place in school
auditoriums, library meeting rooms and peopleís homes.
The nature of the issues will
pertain to the community. Anything beyond that must be
carefully discussed and approved by a majority of the
leaders. The leaders will be the BOD of Go5 and any
government official who wants to participate in our
endeavor. Our initial affiliation with government is
through the local police. Any subject that
pertains to government on a higher level will also be
under the direct observation of that branch of
Religious issues cannot be
discussed because any time a religious belief is placed
on the negotiation table it takes away the freedom of
religion of all other people at the table. This does
not mean you do not bring your religion with you. Bring
your religion with you as the base of your being. It is
the foundation upon which you establish your character.
Please consider that we do not vote for the religion of
another person. We vote for a common political leader and the
winning candidate represents all people.
We do not intrude into politics
directly. We do not promote political candidates. We do
not influence laws. The primary reason is because we
have not been elected by the people and we have not been
appointed by any elected official. It can be said that
we discuss issues and since politicians deal with issues
our discussion might cast enlightenment on the way we
In politics we often refer to
conservative and liberal. Those attributes can be used
to divide us for the sake of controlled dissipation of
hostile energy. However, these variances can be combined
in a constructive way to enhance our joint contribution
to society. Group communications brings about
understanding in a constructive way. As an example take
the terms conservative and liberal. The terms
Conservative and Liberal are relevant terms that
actually apply to human characteristics. Liberals are in
general more open minded in their pursuit of creativity,
novelty, and diversity, whereas conservatives seek lives
that are more orderly, conventional, and better
organized. Seventy five years of research have
confirmed these characteristics. The results have an
effect on a personís openness to experience and
conscientiousness. These variances are revealed in the
way people evaluate themselves. It shows up in their
beliefs, values and preferences. It is evident in their
social interactions, their personal possessions and the
spaces they occupy. Our political world is designed
around these characteristics. Any global effort to
improve civilization should be well aware of these
characteristics. We can use these
characteristics for a controlled release of hostile
energy or we can combine those characteristics in a
constructive manner to create a better world. The
solution is centered around harmonious interactive
Most people can read faster than
they can listen. Therefore, group email is of value for
more elaborate opinions by those who need more time to
compose their thoughts. We do not recommend that group
email takes the place of live communications. There
will be 2 email groups. One is for general chat and is
not moderated. The other is strictly for official
communications and all messages are strictly monitored
and filtered. The purpose of the monitored group is to provide
pertinent information to all people regarding official
business and no general chat is allowed.
This group email is for those who are already overloaded
with email but need to know the essentials.
While we are not an organization
that promotes speeches we will occasionally have a
special guest that initiates our discussion with a
speech that does not exceed 20 minutes. Due to the time
used we may have each moderator post their group
findings to the secretary via email who in turn
publishes to the web master.
We are working on the bylaws and
many other aspects of the program.
