Contacting The Humanity Party®


All serious inquires and interviews can be scheduled with the Executive Board President, Michael S. Budge or with the Humanity Party® spokesperson, Christopher M. Nemelka. (Please click their names for email link.)

Before one can properly understand how THumP® makes its decisions, it’s important that one know a little bit more about THumP®’s organizational structure: who makes the decisions and who does the work.

There are basically two groups (Boards) that run the Humanity Party®: The Board of Directors and its Executive Board.

THumP®’s Board of Directors (except for Christopher Nemelka as its spokesperson) will remain anonymous and incognito for their safety and peace; mainly so that they can continue to live their lives and do what they do in gathering the information (largely through hands-on, first person, experience) that is important to THumP®’s purpose.

The Board informs, teaches, counsels, and explains world events unlike any other think tank that exists. Christopher is a member of the Board, and its only spokesperson, and the only one who will ever be a public figure. He meets with the Board of Directors once per week for as long as it takes for him to be briefed properly, or for him to brief them on the decisions made by the Executive Board.

The Executive Board is the legally registered entity responsible for managing THumP®. The Executive Board members make all the decisions regarding how the information is presented to the public. Christopher is also its spokesperson, thus designated properly as the Humanity Party®’s spokesperson.

The Executive Board consists of the following people, each with a distinguishing feature that expresses the unique diversity of the group and their personal passions that qualify them for the job:
