1:19 – D: you’ll never ever be able to convince a person through logical argument or even brilliant rhetoric that a free and just society is possible. you can show them. you can start doing it. all of a sudden, when people’s horizons change.. conversations will change.
been working on a way to model – for 7 bill plus people – a way to leapfrog to betterness. [be\cause equity matters. and like learning to walk/talk – equitable way is via modeling. and leapfrogging be\cause sync matters.]
from Kevin Carson:
..there’s not much appeal attacking the system to people embedded in it who see it as inevitable and don’t see any credible/viable alternatives. .. they need to see something else modeled.. and the models need to be in place, creating a visible demonstration effect, for rapid adoption when the system’s crises force people to change.
