A Letter to Ben Cohen

I sent this letter to Ben Cohen, care of his non-profit Stamp Stampede organization.

First, thanks for what you’re doing.

Corporations are a powerful engine for change, but like a chain saw, they need to be under control. Right now, corporations are in control, and that’s not good, because “Good for Business” all too often means “Bad for People”.

I began working on that problem in 2000, and identified a solution in 2005. I love the things that folks like you and Bernie are doing, and I support your efforts. But I believe that we need to circumvent the dominating influence that corporate money already has, in order to accomplish the changes we need. (After that, I suspect that many changes will happen, quite rapidly!)

I explain the rationale behind my proposal in the Voting Advice System pages.

If there is a way to collaborate on devising a solution, I would love to be part of that process!

thank you,
eric Armstrong
