of people feel left out of modern life. And when it comes down
to it, that may be about 100% of people.
A lot of people have never found their voice. They have the
feeling they have never been listened to.
If you pass a talking stick, and sit in an approximate circle,
everyone is included. You don't need to speak, you can just hold
the stick for a while and you have the feeling that you are
there and that other people know you are there. When you hear
other people say things which you also have experienced or
believe are important, you will find yourself speaking.
The more people who participate in getting the world back on
course, the better our direction will be.
Otherwise it will be a coup! Those who know they can speak, will
speak at a meeting, and although they are maybe only one third
of the number present, that will be the direction the group
thinks it is going in. A coup!
POWER OF THE POSTER
can put an idea on a poster, handwritten in a good style is not
bad either. Print off 20 or 30 at very low cost on a PC's
printer, and put them around town two weeks beforehand, and
maybe 50 people will turn up in the local Park you put on the
poster, and you can have an interesting time. And people who
thought they had no voice in the world, will find they actually
have a voice and that they can be heard.. they can participate..
and they can listen, and consider and think.
It's an exhilarating thing to call a meeting, and then see it
happen. It can do so much good. The waves spread outwards from
all those who attended, through society, and across the land.
