Society has been putting us into boxes - forcing us to comply to the rules of the box.
It’s time we break free.
We get boxed in as students, employees, consumers, voters, etc. It's a never-ending process that limits and constraints our very essence.
The boxes that simplify and control a complex world lack human dignity and respect for our environment.
Being constrained doesn’t work: it makes us feel smothered, silenced, and unable to achieve our fullest human potential. We end up suffering due to the intolerable limitations placed upon us. It’s no wonder people have become so anxious, stressed, disengaged, burned out, and depressed.
Someday we will all end up in a box, but we shouldn’t live our whole lives in one. We can no longer let the system of constraints keep us from experiencing and expressing our true nature – denying us our dignity and limiting our ability to co-create reality.
The Radical Manifesto
RADICAL – noun – a person who advocates fundamental social reforms by direct and often uncompromising methods.
Radicals live outside the box.
- We are one with nature.
- We trust the intent of the human spirit.
- We live with meaning and belonging.
- We believe in compassion and responsibility.
- We have dignity in our autonomy.
- We benefit from our collective intelligence.
- We organize and collaborate on our terms.
- We make a purposeful and positive impact.
Become a Radical, break out of the box and join the movement!
We are drawn to each other by our fundamental beliefs. Some of us have lived and worked in democratic work environments for decades, while others are tired of the social and human injustices that we have tolerated.
People are needlessly suffering.
Together we are the Radicals. Radical is a movement reigniting people’s awareness of our human needs and transforming our society to be people-centered rather than maintaining the unjust status quo.
Radicals are purpose driven and committed to honesty, authenticity, transparency, and treating everyone as equals. We believe in empathy, and above all, human dignity. To be a Radical is first and foremost to understand that our organizations must serve people.
Our goal is ambitious. Trailblazers are already making headway. If you share these beliefs, you too are a Radical.
What makes us do what we do and say what we say?
Internally, our neurological circuits motivate and drive us. Externally, we live by a set of norms defined through society, religion, government, etc. The two are intimately related. The Human Code is a set of algorithms that are the basis of our behavior and our society.
The Human Code model provides insight into what drives the motivations, behaviors, and decisions of individuals. It also helps us to understand why the systems around us aren’t working by giving us a reference point to help validate how we can improve our society.
We can change based on ideas or principles, but our fundamental selves will always be there. It’s time we take the Human Code into account and design to it rather than ignoring it.

We will continue to evolve the table, including making it interactive. Our thanks to Radical Doug Kirkpatrick for its initial development.
