GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation and after four years of preparation and debate the GDPR was finally approved by the EU (European Union) Parliament on 14 April 2016. It was enforced on 25 May 2018 – and organisations that are not compliant could now face heavy fines. The GDPR has sister legislation across the globe including Singapore's Personal Dat Protection Regulation. JFK has been at the center of all international relations and policy design for data protection over the past ten (10) years. In public speeches he regularly states "our digital lives are not separate from our lives, and as that is a fact, all international relations must include thought leadership on digital barriers or sovereignty by the individual, institution, and state."
JFK was first to establish a Data Bill of Rights outline based on language he lobbied in data protection regulations in the US and abroad. When in office we will finally have the leadership to establish American regulations that lead the world again. We can do better than Europe & Asia's GDPR by harnessing the American ethic to autonomy & ownership. That's what JFK calls Inclusionism.

JFK on PROBLEM v SOLUTION
I'm not used to using the word I much, but I will here. A decade ago, before it was fashionable I establish the Data Trade Association, multiple Data Conferences, and The Data Union to build industry infrastructure for the coming wave of automation. Over the course of my career I've been called the foremost leader on issues of data and data rights by institutions like the Future Tech Congress and the World data Protection Forum. I was one of the earliest to submit documentation to Data Protection Commissions in multiple Europeans countries and regulatory bodies around the globe with the hope of not only establishing the opportunity to enforce privacy and security, but to establish the economic bounds of data. I think it important to note that as a capitalist, I view personal data as the most micro resource that individuals can own. This is important because the non-rival good that data is, is an input to all economic productivity at the corporate level per institutions that interact with us individuals. This is important because codify data in data protection regulations has been my core life's work to identify how we actually include people like myself, outside of the ownership class, back into the economy that has excluded us for the past 50 years.
Data protection regulations may make me seem like a cyber or technology fanatic, and it has given me access to nearly every type of policy maker on the planet to advise or think publicly, but my objectives have been simple. I want real inclusion, beyond gender or race or economic starting point. I know that people are valuable because I can see it in the data. Unlike a preacher when I say you have value I mean that I can show you in real time. It's high time that we start fixing the economy and our moral interactions based on the data. I started running for office, because I'm done writing policy. That mission has been accomplished. If you'd like to read more, please check out my 2017 book Personal Data: The People's Asset Class.
Codify "personal data" as a natural resource.
Give ownership of valuable data back to the people.
Leverage the value of data as an input to economic productivity, to establish the basic income dividend achieved in The American Value Act.
