The fifth most important plank in the presidential platform is the Continuous Nation-Building Function of governance:
- Nation-Building must be dedicated internally and externally to advancing civilization to meet the changing conditions of our human and ecological environment.
For America, this means building upon the Standards of The Prosperous Community to empower a Freedom Culture and elevate the exchanges of our Free Enterprise Marketplace (see Figure 6). It means Freedom-Building to generate Nation-Building.
Figure 6. Nation-Building
As may be noted, Nation-Building “nests” Freedom-Building that, in turn, “houses” Community-Building as follows:
- Homes generate Mechanical Capital Development or mCD.
- Schools generate Information Capital Development or ICD.
- Colleges generate Human Capital Development or HCD.
- Governance generates Organization Capital Development or OCD.
- Business generates Marketplace Capital Development or MCD.
Community-Building provides Community Capital Development or CCD as the foundation for Freedom-Building.
Where CCD is a product of networks of Community Components, Freedom-Building is a product of Networks of CCD. Together, these networks of CCD generate increasingly elevated levels of Freedom Capital Development or FCD:
- Cultural Relating at the highest levels of collaboration and interdependency.
- Participative Governance at the highest levels of representation and enlightenment.
- Free Enterprise at the highest levels of capitalism and entrepreneurism.
Freedom-Building provides the foundation for Nation-Building: Nation Capital Development or NCD.
Where FCD is a product of networks of CCD, Nation-Building is a product of Networks of FCD. Together, these networks of FCD generate increasingly elevated levels of Nation Capital Development or NCD:
- Peace as a function of Interdependency-driven Cultural Relating;
- Participation as a function of Enlightenment-driven Participative Governance;
- Prosperity as a function of Entrepreneurial-driven Free Enterprise.
Nation-Building provides the foundation for Global Capital Development or GCD.
In summary, Nation-Building is dedicated to continuous Community-, Freedom-, and Nation-Building in the global village and its marketplace. The ongoing function of American governance is global leadership by accomplishing The Generativity Mission.
