LeaderShiftIt’s time for power to go back to where it belongs; to the people. With politicians and the business elite making all our decisions for us, we are losing our freedoms each and every day, and our standard of living goes down with that loss.

LeaderShift, by Orrin Woodward & Oliver Demille, is a call for people to stand up and become who they need to be in order to take back our freedoms and prevent it from being lost again. It in no way supports Republicans, nor does it support Democrats; it supports the American people (and Canadian if you read it from my perspective).

It is written in the form of a business parable about the United States, but don’t let that fool you into thinking this is just for Americans. There are a number of proposals put forth in the book that could drastically change the way we run our society, and the principles behind them can be applied to any country.

It all starts with the Five Laws of Decline; If these laws are not addressed in the frame-work of a company or a nation, they will become its undoing. Leadershift will go through the details of how they apply to a nation, but the reasoning will become obvious as you go through them.

1. Sturgeons Law – 90% of everything is Crud (this includes workers, leaders, politicians…) This means that 90% of the people running for office (and being elected) can’t be counted on to do the right thing. Thankfully the other side to this law is that 10% of the people out there are good leaders. We just need to allow them to come forth.

2. Bastiats Law – People will do the least amount of work possible to satisfy their wants. This means that if someone can get what they want without doing anything or by getting someone else to do it for them, they will.

3. Gresham’s Law – When bad behavior is rewarded, more will occur; The good ones will be driven away. Through this law, If you need to be corrupt to get ahead in an organization (or country) those that aren’t corrupt will not even enter the field; if they are already involved, they will likely leave. They do not want to be bad people, and will not be part of something where they feel they will need to do something wrong. At the same time, Those that don’t mind doing something wrong will be much more likely to do so since they will be rewarded for it. (more…)

I just finished reading two articles by Orrin Woodward, on the subject of his and Oliver Demille’s soon to be released LeaderShift book, and I just have to share them. The first is an introduction to a book Orrin is currently writing, going through the history of past civilizations and pointing out what can be learned and applied from them. The second is more about what the LeaderShift book itself is going to accomplish.

Enjoy the articles below the awesome trailer for the book!

Why America & Western Society Needs a LeaderShift

The following is a portion of the introduction from a book I am working on about Western Society. LeaderShift is less than a month away from release and Oliver DeMille and I are pumped about it. However, there is much more to share on this important subject than can be contained in one book. The Quest for Concord is as old as Western Societies existence and has been attempted in every society since the Greeks. The LIFE Business intends to educate people on their history so we can ensure we protect the freedoms we enjoy for our posterity. Today’s reading is not light, but I promise if you take the time to read and comprehend, it will help you understand the pressing issues going on in today’s society. (more…)

Orrin Woodward recently posted this article on his site. He did a little introduction to an Amazing article by Oliver DeMille about the need for a new party. Although this article is about the United States, I believe this also applies to Canada. Even if we do have more than one party, none are what we truly need; we need a party of small business!

I’m super excited about the book LeaderShift, co-wrote by Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille. After reading Oliver’s FreedomShift and 1913, along with Orrin’s Resolved and Launching a Leadership Revolution – There is no doubt this book is going to be a top seller, and a book that will help change the course of our countries; in a positive direction!

Get the book. Mine is pre-ordered!

Enjoy,

Orrin’s article:

LeaderShift by Orrin Woodward & Oliver DeMille
LeaderShift isn’t a political party, but it is a freedom movement of productive members in society (of both left and right persuasions), who are concerned about the decline in dialogue, decision-making, and direction of our country’s political leaders. Oliver DeMille and I wrote LeaderShift to provide new thinking to an old problem, using the Five Laws of Decline to describe the process. Governments, by their very nature, tend to centralize and control. Indeed, local leadership and freedoms are inversely proportional to centralized powers and control. (more…)

19131913. It was the year everything changed. In his book ‘Freedom Shift‘, Oliver DeMille explained how nations go through what he calls world shifts. He explained that these shifts either put a nation on a path towards more freedom through a freedom shift, or towards more oppression through a force shift.

In that book he mentioned that the last shift, a force shift, started in 1913 and he gave a brief explanation on why. In his latest book ‘1913’ he spells out in more detail just what it was that happened, and why these events have had such on huge impact on our lives today.

What I love about this book is that it is not a doomsday book forecasting our downfall, but a lesson in history intended to educate us about the principles of freedom and why they are so important. Not only is it a lesson on history, but it maps out a plan for our future. By showing where everything went wrong and why he sets us up for his plan to restore freedom, which he goes through in the second half. He gives a road map to making sure the next shift we experience is a freedom shift and not another force shift.

I just finished reading Freedom Shift by Oliver DeMille, and the book is fantastic!

In this book, DeMille puts forth his 3 choices to reclaim our freedoms. Although written from the American perspective, the ideas he lays out can, and should, be applied to every country.

We can have an entrepreneurial revolution, a rise of the independents, or developing and leading new tribes. We are not limited to one choice however, and should endeavor to choose all 3.

DeMille starts off his book by going through the producer vs employee society, and explains how producers are more inclined to promote freedom than a society of dependents. Employees are dependents because everything they do or have is dependent on what their employer gives them, and so can’t truly do anything on their own.

Public schools these days don’t really teach students to be leaders or entrepreneurs, and that is exactly what this world needs if we are to reclaim the freedoms that are constantly being taken away by our governments. Public schools teach people how to be employees, keeping the low and middle class citizens in the low and middle class. Our schools don’t teach us how to get out of those classes, as employees are not meant to. entrepreneurs work for their own dream, while employees work for someone else’s. What our schools teach is remembering names and date and formulas, with very little meaning being brought to any of it. For example, when I was in high school, I remember learning stuff about history, but what it was about those times that made it important. What I learned (when I could remember) were names and dates of different events and people, that was quickly lost after the tests were written. I had gained no understanding or meaning from those people or events.
