by Anonymous

This book creates a hypothetical organization called "Word of Mouth Democracy for the 99%". The book is based upon the Spiritual and organization principles designed by Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. His system which is referred to as a Corporate Spiritual Democracy has proven to work successfully with a very mixed background of personalities and with an exponentially growing membership for over 75 years. The book demonstrates how Bill Wilson's 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, 12 Concepts and 6 Warranties can be applied to an organization with the following goals: • Progressive reduction and removal of ego and self-centeredness from our personality; • Continual spiritual and moral character development within ourselves; • Establishment and operation of a national “Word of Mouth Democracy for the 99%” Corporate Spiritual Democracy fellowship for U.S. citizens; • Selecting, electing and placement of political candidates and government leaders of high moral and spiritual quality; • Lobbying for government legislation and regulation of amoral capitalism; • Providing service to our membership so that our “Word of Mouth Democracy for the 99%” Meetings can always remain open and easily available to anyone wanting or needing our information and fellowship. This book provides many profound and innovative ways to rethink and plan the direction we are headed individually, as a society and as a nation
I am retired as an environmental health and public health professional. I am now writing books about the Spiritual Awakening techniques and organizational methods created by Bill Wilson the founder of Alcoholic Anonymous. I refer to his entire life work project as a Corporate Spiritual Democracy (or some combination of those three words) which has been successfully implemented as 12 Step programs in our country and around the world for over seventy five years. Not only did Bill Wilson create a simple method for one to become Spiritually Awakened, but he created an organizational system of respect for your fellow man, common sense and dignity, and service to others that provides a democratic spirit of equality for its members. It is one of the most pure forms of moral and unprejudiced democracy to be found on the face of this earth Rather than deciding to keep these brilliant ideas in obscurity, I believe in accordance with Bill Wilson that " many people, nonalcoholics, report that as a result of the practice of AA's 12 Steps, they have been able to meet other difficulties of life. They think that the 12 Steps can mean more than sobriety for problem drinkers. They see in them a way to happy and effective living, alcoholic or not" (Foreword to Bill Wilson's, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions). In Bill's book, AA Comes Of Age, many of the AA nonalcoholic founders of AA, such as Bernard Smith, Attorney; Dr. Harry Tiebot, M.D. and Rev. Samuel Schoemaker PhD. agree. However in order to respect the 12 Traditions of AA, I must remain anonymous at all levels of press, radio and film. Therefore I request that all those who read my profile, respect my anonymity as well. I am not trying to make money from these books (in fact I have spent quite a deal), but I believe that my writing will do more with helping others that many other techniques I use.
