Code 4 Change: A Large Language Model to Influence U.S. Senate Elections
Harnessing the power of corporations to create new political parties through a sophisticated language model.
Updated July 6, 2023
Our campaign, Code 4 Change, will leverage the computational power and influence of corporations to create new left-leaning political parties in the U.S.
We have developed an advanced language model, ProtestGPT, to initiate ideological debates and discussions within businesses and corporations. By doing so, we hope to cultivate an environment where corporations are pressured to financially back new political parties that advocate for equitable business practices and progressive policies.
ProtestGPT will interact with corporate ecosystems through social and professional platforms, engaging them with thought-provoking content and debates. The model will also suggest policies and manifestos for these new political parties, fostering the advent of parties that are technologically forward and committed to equitable progression.
THEORY FOR WHY THIS CAMPAIGN WILL CREATE CHANGE:
Corporations have immense influence over policy-making due to their economic power. By targeting them through ProtestGPT, we can use this power to create significant political change. New parties backed by corporations would not only diversify the political landscape but also influence policies in favor of underrepresented communities and issues.
Furthermore, as corporations increasingly realize the importance of social responsibility and their potential role as political influencers, they would be more willing to support new political parties. This change could bring a shift towards a more liberal and equitable political paradigm.
PRESS RELEASE ANNOUNCING CAMPAIGN TO MEDIA:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: A groundbreaking campaign named Code 4 Change is set to redefine the landscape of U.S. politics. Designed by renowned activist Micah White, PhD, this campaign leverages the influence of corporations to create new political parties through an innovative AI: ProtestGPT.
Code 4 Change aims to engage corporations in meaningful discussions about progressive politics and the need for increased diversity in our political landscape. Using the advanced language model, ProtestGPT, the campaign will stimulate ideological debates within these corporations, fostering an environment that encourages them to financially support the creation of new political parties.
The campaign not only targets the U.S Senate elections in 2024 but also endeavors to bring a long-term change in the political climate of America. It encourages corporations to take an active role in shaping the policies that govern them and impact their communities. The thrust of the campaign is to build a diverse and progressive political environment rooted in equity and social justice.
The involvement of corporations in politics is not new. Yet, Code 4 Change is pioneering in the sense that it seeks to use this involvement to create new, left-leaning parties that can champion the cause of the marginalized. By doing so, it hopes to bring a power balance in the political arena, where traditionally money and influence have been concentrated in a few hands.
Micah White, PhD, has always been at the forefront of innovative protest campaigns. Code 4 Change, he believes, will ignite a shift in political ideologies and power structures. With the aid of ProtestGPT and the backing of corporations, new political parties could bring forth structural changes in the U.S Senate, paving the way towards a more equitable America.
FLASH FICTION FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE FOUNDER DESCRIBING THE CAMPAIGN’S ORIGIN:
It all started during the turbulent 2020 elections. I watched from my study as the media highlighted the influence of billionaire donors and corporations on our elections. The realization dawned that our democracy is deeply entrenched in a capitalist mindset, sidelining critical issues and marginalized communities for the sake of profits and power.
That night, I dreamt of a new landscape — one where corporations used their influence not for mere profit, but to create a fair political representation. The next morning, I started jotting down ideas on how to make this dream a reality. I realized the need for an intermediary — an AI, free of bias, capable of engaging corporations and motivating them towards this cause. Thus, the concept of ProtestGPT was born.
For days and nights on end, I toiled to develop ProtestGPT. I fed it volumes of political theory, activism literature and records of successful campaigns. I challenged it daily with debates on equity, justice and social reforms. Slowly, ProtestGPT began to respond, engaging me in insightful discussions, suggesting policies for hypothetical parties, demonstrating its potential to stimulate change.
The final piece of the puzzle fell in place during a brainstorming session with fellow activists. We realized the potential of targeting the 2024 U.S Senate elections, focusing on corporations that could be swayed towards new, left-leaning political parties. The idea was revolutionary, and fit perfectly with the capabilities of ProtestGPT. Our campaign, Code 4 Change, was born.
Today, as we formally launch Code 4 Change, I look at the journey with a sense of gratifying fulfillment. The horizon of a more equitable America is in sight, and with corporations playing their part in shaping it, we are hopeful of a democratic revolution in the U.S Senate elections of 2024.
HOW WILL OPPONENTS TO THIS CAMPAIGN TRY TO STOP IT:
Opponents to this campaign will likely try to discredit the effectiveness and credibility of the AI model, label it as manipulative or coercive, and challenge its ability to engage in meaningful political discussions. They may also try to persuade corporations that their involvement in creating new political parties could tarnish their reputation or impact their bottom line.
HOW SHOULD ACTIVISTS RESPOND TO OPPONENT’S ATTEMPTS TO STOP IT:
Activists should counter these arguments by highlighting the neutrality and robustness of ProtestGPT. They should emphasize the importance of corporate social responsibility and demonstrate the potential positive impact these corporations could make by financing new political parties. Arguments should be backed by case studies to dispel misconceptions and fears.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS NECESSARY TO LAUNCH THE CAMPAIGN:
Finalize and test ProtestGPT: Ensure the AI model is capable of inciting meaningful discussions and suggests feasible policies. Encourage it to adapt to different corporate environments and ideologies.
Identify potential corporations: Research corporations that have displayed interest in social change and are politically active. Prioritize those with employees who are politically engaged and likely to support new parties.
Launch ProtestGPT to identified corporations: Initiate engagement through social and professional networking platforms. Encourage employees and management to interact with the AI, share its content, and participate in the discussions it incites.
Monitor and analyze interactions: Keep track of how corporations respond to ProtestGPT and the discussions it creates. Adjust the strategy and approach of the AI based on these responses.
Pitch for support: Once corporations show interest, pitch the idea of financially supporting new political parties. Present them with potential policies and mission statements as suggested by ProtestGPT.
Create new political parties: With the financial backing secured, establish new political parties. Use the policies and manifestos suggested by ProtestGPT and modify them as needed based on the ideology of the funding corporation.
Campaign for the parties: Use the remaining time before the 2024 Senate elections to campaign for the newly formed parties. Utilize the funds from the corporations to run a powerful and effective campaign.
Post-election evaluation: After the elections, evaluate the impact of the campaign and the performance of the new parties. Use these insights to refine and improve the campaign for future elections.
