We live in unprecedented times. Yesterday’s breaking news is all but forgotten the next day, and then the day after. It’s a monumental task just to keep abreast of what’s happening in the world, let alone respond and respond accurately, with the desired force, effect, and poignancy.
Our little team had started this project in hopes of drawing you all into the circle of all those who are deeply concerned with the state of the world and the direction it’s going, concerned enough to DO something about it.
Ours is a collaborative venture, a co-op, and its success is in your hands. We can’t do it alone. But if you bring the requisite kind of energy, commitment, determination, and passion into the fold, if you dare to imbue our modest attempt to change the world with these qualities, your personal, intangible qualities, then, who knows? – we may attain a critical mass and become a strong cultural force in its own right, and an effective agent of change.
That’s the idea. And that’s why we urge you to join our grassroots community for change, not only as passive consumers but as active participants and invaluable contributors to our joint venture.
We’re in the process of working out the details regarding some form of compensation for all manner of contributions. As soon as we reach a consensus, you’ll be the first to know. And although we realize that for many of us this is a labor of love, a necessary kind of labor, and a kind of labor requiring no compensation at all because it’s from the heart, we must embrace the idea of sharing, not only as an incentive, but as a demonstration of an idea whose time had come, an idea that’s workable throughout the greater society. Let ours become a microcosm of what’s possible.
This is your world, after all, our world, so let’s act accordingly.
