We Can DO BETTER Wednesdays: Do Better Chapter 9 & Mapping the Later Years: Universals +…

This post is  the rough draft of  Chapter 9, section III. A. ch9A  of my non-fiction WiP, Do Better, fka Baby Floors.   This part of chapter 9 will introduce the later years of mapping out a path to get there for Phase III.

The overall objective remains that of putting a floor on poverty so that each and every baby born can have a safe childhood.


Once again, by way of disclaimer, the overall goal is now to explain why we need both equ. + justice, & why in 4 phases.  This chapter is part of showing what Phases I-IV could look like as potential roadmap for a fully inclusive society for all of us.  This vision is laid out in the hope that All HumanKind  will eventually have each person’s basic needs  met, without taking anything from anyone, and without violence, intimidation, nor coercion of any kind. 

(Chapter 9, section II. D. was last week)

Chapter 9, section III. A.

   Please see the 5th draft for this section, as linked to Do Better above, keeping in mind that it has now been edited, up to the 7th chapter (as of Friday, May 6th ’22…).

— (Next Wednesday: Chapter 9, section III. B. )


I’m considering this Rough Draft as the block of clay from which my book will eventually emerge, obviously, and some ideas for phases III and IV are still becoming more  fixed in my mind as I write, so the final version will likely look pretty different from this Rough Draft, and will need updating once I get to the very end.


And once again, yeayyy( !!)with regard to audience, I may have at least a couple of comps:  Walden Two meets The War on Poverty: A Civilian Perspective (by Dr.s Jean and Edgar Cahn, 1964).  I know that lots of people consider Skinner’s writing to be stilted, but I like the tilt of most reviewers, in that the idea is that a community should keep trying policies that members agree upon until they find what works for all of them.

As for genre, I’m still wondering:  clearly part of  Non-fiction.

Maybe also: System Change, Causes, maybe even Inspirational, but I doubt it.

  1. This can move from chapter 6 into either chapter 9 or chapter 10:

    “…private donors finding themselves with an
    overabundance of homes, and glad to give to the common good. Much like leaving a house to
    Howard University, as one of my grandfather’s relatives did, leaving property to the Bedsit Per
    Baby database could come to be seen as the highest level of philanthropy. “
