Shira Destinie Jones Booth Hall Porter Faxio Mayo Manzilla West, author of the Community and 4 Freedoms blog, is a published academic and  community author and an aspiring Historical Fantasy novelist. She has also been a community organizer, Voluntary Simplicity adherent, RankedChoiceVoting advocate, and educator. She is still working to build strong Public Domain social Infrastructure (#PublicDomainInfrastructure), and welcomes others to join in this work:
1.) Public Transportation,


2.) Public Libraries,

3.) ProBono Legal & Consumer Education particularly around housing issues, &

4.) Universal Health Care.

She believes that our Public Domain social Infrastructure, starting with these four key parts,  need to be under girded by adopting a Universal Basic Income, possibly supplemented by a Federal Jobs Guarantee.  She has organized community events such as film discussions, multi-ethnic song events and cooperative presentations in her native city of Washington, DC and abroad. She is also a writer of reviews and stories on:……

Working to help build peace, cultural change and cooperative community by helping to restore and rebuild our Public Domain Infrastructure (#PublicDomainInfrastructure): Libraries, ProBono Legal & Consumer Education, Universal Health Care & a Universal Basic Income. This follows, imho, in the example of William James, Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and R. Hillel.   Some ways we can all help do this include:

0.  Sharing Non-Violent Communication and the Holocene Calendar to build inclusive cultural change via reading library books, writing each person’s autobiography or story or song, and advocating for each other, thus helping to change our culture,

1. Banking small (Credit Unions, Nef, Credit Cooperatif),
2. Buying local (local Coops and farmers markets),
3. ‘BMW’ing (Bike/Metro/Walk),
4. Using renewable energy providers (EnerCoop),
5. Living Simply: RRR, go Veg./Locavore, FreeCycle, Compost, etc…
6. Supporting Worker’s Coops, Food Coops, funding for HeadStart and early childhood programs,
7. Living in Intentional Community that uses Participatory Decision-making or consensus based decision-making, advocating Instant Runoff Voting, learning about Sortition…

#PublicDomainInfrastructure is a set of parts of our social infrastructure, those institutions that keep our social fabric together, which are, or ought to be, free and freely available to all members of the public, hence part of the public domain. I have picked 4 items I see as most crucial, only for simplicity’s sake:

1.Free and full access to well funded and diverse Public Libraries
2.Pro-Bono Legal aide and Free intensive (especially debt-related) Consumer and Financial Continuing Education,
3.Universal Health Care on a Single Payer System,
4. Good low-cost extensive Public Transportation.
