I am very pleased to announce the next COMM-ORG working 
paper, by Moshe ben Asher, titled "Secession is Not the Solution."

This will be an interesting paper for those of you concerned with 
how to truly make politics, and government, local.  So much of 
community organizing is about taking back local control, but we 
have very few models of how to institutionalize such control.  This 
paper presents one possibility.

You can find the paper linked from the COMM-ORG "Papers" page: 

or directly at:

As always, Moshe and I welcome and encourage discussion of the 
paper.  Feel welcomed to send comments to the list or directly to
