Winning the Battle for Hearts and Minds
Winning the Battle for Hearts and Minds

How do we transform our anger about assassinations, false flag attacks, torture, war crimes, corruption, war-mongering for profit, and the psychopathology of our current leadership into something that speaks to and sustains joy, community, and life?

What does it mean for our life, our families, our community, our spirit?

How do we recapture the rights, wealth, opportunity, image, and grace
that have been taken or destroyed?

How do we move forward with certainty into sustainability,
personal, social, familial economic/environmental health and well-being, survivability, and vibrancy?

There is a need for spreading insight, perspective and information,
for fomenting inquiry, for fostering awareness and mindfulness,
for empowerment of person, collaboration, community ...

but can I do more?

Can "we" collectively have some impact?

If so, what should be our focus?

As Lt. Col. John Boyd (USAF, deceased) (referencing and improving upon Clausewitz) would ask in war-like terms, what is our schwerpunkt?

What is our "weight (or focus) of effort"? What is the glue that holds the degradatory, destructive, criminal nexus together?

How can we improve our outreach and efficacy?

How do we win the battle for our own and others' hearts and minds?

I asked these questions of Magda Hassan...
  • her response, my own thoughts, some material from Justin Boland,
  • a short look at 5GW (5th Generation Warfare) [size=12]and [/SIZE]
  • a glimpse at alternate reality games

have all been posted
at E Pluribus Unum.

Member participation over there will start in about 8 PM GMT on 6/5/09.

Other material and articles will be added over time, and hopefully some cross-talk and cross-collaboration, fresh ideas, expanded awareness about functional and effective approaches, etc., will follow.
