UN-Till Then Farming

POLI the AI asks, "Where can we agree?" Until the climate emergency & impending global food security challenge is over, a United Nations (UN) pact to speed the adoption of low-tillage regenerative farming with industrialized nations agreeing to assist farmers with any out-of-pocket conversion cost for equipment, crop rotation, crop diversity, cover and new crops. The overall benefits of low-till and regenerative farming are well known but farming is a grueling profession with thin profit margins, and all change is difficult. ONE PARROT plows that to feed the world we can't risk changing current practices for yield or monetary reasons. THE OTHER PARROT sows that caring for the soil increases carbon sequestration, yields richer soil, healthier foods, requires less water, less synthetic fertilizers and phosphates, less herbicides, less pesticides, and produces higher quality & quantity of calories per acre. Do you think a majority of each role would be in favor or against?

Should gov't support the low-till farming conversion?


Let’s get horizontal, Politics 4.0 makes strange bedfellows

Turn your phone and your perspective horizontally
Widen your views, literally and figuratively
Politics is a landscape not a self-portrait
You’ll need both your left and right thumbs
Widen your views — left and right
Let’s knock down some figurative silos
Let’s sit on the 50 yard line, not just one end zone

This unifying theory of public policy is based on the ground truth, “There’s a time to save and a time to spend, there’s a time for freedom and a time for laws, where can we agree?” The PolicyKeys™ Gameboard is a one-page narrative tool which drives an AI to check for possible forecasting discrepancies. Now that public policy solutions can be fairly scored with a replicable and scalable system, the best nonpartisan public policy solutions can rise up to the National Idea Leaderboard to take the mystery, sleight of hand, spin, and outright sabotage out of identifying the best public policy for America. This makes somewhat dry public policy read more like a delicious restaurant menu and the sports page. Politics 4.0 transparently presents the theory, four laws of public policy formation, methodology, process, and examples for truly-interested open-minded citizens. Is it better to be a wonk or a parrot?
