“Society’s Breakthrough” is the application of Wisdom Council Process to the nation and/or globally. It's a distinct social innovation because this simple action promises to transform the System we currently inhabit —i.e. governance, economics, and the culture. So just exploring this idea in depth can feel threatening to the explorer ... or ... over-the-top-exciting!!
"The term "Society's Breakthrough" originated with the publication in 2002 of Society’s Breakthrough! Releasing Essential Wisdom and Virtue in All the People by Jim Rough. In 2007 Robert David Steele, long-time #1 nonfiction book reviewer on Amazon.com, said this book is "perhaps one of the ten most important books available in English." In 2019 Robert, a strong Trump supporter, revisited the book and his review in a podcast with Jim Rough (below): "Social Innovations to Heal Our World"
When Society's Breakthrough was first published in 2002 it was assumed that the Wisdom Council Process would need to be established by a legitimate "We the People" ... i.e. enacted as a U.S. Constitutional Amendment. However through many experiments we now believe that it can work even if started by just a group of concerned citizens ... and that the process has even more potential for change that first imagined. See the chart describing the difference between these two visions of Society's Breakthrough 2002 vs. 2020. .
