Below is a set of video presentations that
were prepared in January 2014 after a presentation that was made at the 85th Annual Conference of the Southern Political Science Association in New Orleans. (click image to the left to see it full-size)

The first video provides a 66 minute long introduction to Lester Leavitt's seven years of research.
(This video is available on DVD in HD quality.)

The second video is an adaptation of a recent conference presentation. The title for the paper was, 

All other videos on this site were prepared in the first half of 2013 and some of the 
research and ideas presented in them has been significantly updated during Lester Leavitt's dissertation year. 

Notwithstanding, changes in the direction of the research and new developments in the theory have been minor,
and almost everything presented in the following videos remains substantially intact.

Those ideas that have been updated and adapted have been left on this site because of the 
role that they played in the development and growth of the MOCSIE Systems as a research model.

<------   Please take four minutes to watch this video that will give you a brief tour of the MOCSIE Systems web domain.

The idea of the MOCSIE Systems is to find a way to engineer a virtual institution that might bring together currently fragmented activist organizations and community groups. Once created, this institution could serve as the "voice" of a single cohesive globalized solidarity movement. 

Referenced throughout this domain as "glocalization," the idea of the MOCSIE Systems is that progressive, but otherwise disparate protest movements might be brought together in purpose and spirit by germinating diverse "sustaining institutions" to support (and at the same time unify) meta-narrative and micro-narrative communities behind meaningful, and feasible, policy-change demands.

Create a "glocal" (global-local) network for progressive policy change. (please watch the video --->)

Build sustainability into emerging solidarity movements, regardless of geographic remoteness or socio-economic status.

Establish a non-hierarchical direct-democracy system of "glocal" self-governance.
