Simultaneous Policy (Simpol) is an international association of member citizens championing a new democratic political system based on global cooperation rather than destructive competition. Simpol is taking practical action to advance evolution by demonstrating that the solution to solving many of today’s global problems is the urgent evolution of global cooperation between nation states. An evolutionary worldview has the unique capacity to reveal how the world needs to be organised and governed to solve the many problems that threaten us.
Simpol is disrupting the current pseudo-democratic political system. They are actively driving nations to implement Simpol through existing elections in their countries. Simpol member citizens use their voting power to influence politicians to implement solutions to global problems such as climate change, wealth inequality, tax avoidance and more. The implementation of Simpol within the current system is achieved by campaigning for citizens to pledge their support via the Simpol website. By signing on citizens signify to politicians that they will be giving strong voting preference at all future national elections to politicians or parties that have signed the pledge to implement Simpol to the exclusion of those who haven’t.
Founder: John Bunzl
Simpol has been in discussion with, and informed by, leading evolutionary thinkers, psychologists, theorists and practitioners, from around the world with the aim of showing how creating a new level of global political cooperation is essential to humanity’s survival and further evolution. Simpol has on-going exchanges with leading evolutionary thinkers including David Sloan Wilson, Ken Wilber, John Stewart, Ervin Laszlo, Jonathan Rowson, Carter Phipps, Steve McIntosh and others. Simpol’s founder, John Bunzl, has had a number of articles published in The Journal of Integral Theory & Practice. An interview about his book, The Simpol Solution, conducted by evolutionary biologist David Sloan Wilson appears in the online publication Evonomics. Beyond that, Simpol works with citizens and politicians to enhance their awareness of their role in the evolutionary process and how the Simpol campaign can enable them to fulfil it.
