So here is a selection of inspiring and hopeful news and ideas that I have gleaned in the past week. My intention is to inspire our hope and encourage us to get into action!
From a talk given by Bill Twist, co-founder, The Pachamama Alliance
“Being political” is a charge that is used a lot. But what people really mean is, “it sounds like you’re trying to create conflict.” People think that politics is about conflict. “Being political” means being committed to use our governmental structures to create the future that we want. We want to be engaged in using our structures of government to skillfully resolve differences by having people come together using our democratic processes. That’s democracy!
