Here is a topic you and I agree on (rare???) I like it, want in on the
discussion. Please forward this to the list; I am away from my home
As you know from my own website, I am big on positive connotation and
solution-focused thinking. My variation: A visionary view Discover, Dream,
Discover: Where are the inspiring stories about alternative energy? Let's
have a government / media cooperative effort to publicize them.
Dream: Based on this, sponsor symposiums / articles / festschrifts /
publicity about the nation's dream of energy independence. Talk about how
it will enrich our nation, how more resources can shift to education and
how our nation can again be the leader of the world, this time in energy
independency. In other words, foster exchanges of dreams.
Design: Based on the two above steps, what does our next step look like?
Where are the choice points, the inflection points? What will cause the
critical mass to tip (tipping points)? How can Spiral Dynamics contribute?
Delivery: Demonstration and feasibility projects, private enterprise,
social psychology efforts to energize people using those choices. What can
we start to do today? I ride my bicycle to work (yes, in spire of owning an
SUV) in decent weather. News stories on "what I did today to defeat
islamofacisism." Encourage each person to 'do something today'
We have two senior republican senators from my state, and what I am willing
to do (since I can't ride the bike until spring comes) is write repeatedly
to them. Bennett will clearly be re-elected. He is a man motivated by
vision. He put tremendous energy into the Y2K problem. I can try to
influence him. What can others do? Republicans will almost certainly
control both houses post election, so we need to talk to them. Perhaps
others could encourage the Dems to tone down the attack speech and worth
together, post 04?
