Co-hosted by Zim, see below for his post & ask to discuss:

"I’m envisioning a world where citizens know their rights and know how to exercise/protect their rights. Where ethically ambivalent actors are drawn toward serving and protecting people over harming people for selfish gain.

Because in this future, we’ve created platforms that allow people to take matters into their own hands, and organize effectively to create and enforce regulations and to dole out justice and punishment.

Put another way, we need something between petitioning legislators and lobbying politicians to change or enforce laws set forth to curtail wrongdoing and protect us/our neighbors/the environment. And taking to the streets and protesting doesn’t quite do it. I’ve been diving deep into class action law, and believe it to be one of the untapped gems that can be used to empower everyday people to collectively push for sociopolitical change (and enforcement of existing regulations).


1000x more effective than petitioning or protesting, x more affordable than legislative lobbying. Is anyone here interested in discussing this topic (the problem or the proposed mechanism)? And potentially building a company around it?"
