    Realizing what is not working can be useful.

    Community self-assessment can be useful.

    Understanding the dynamics can help us redesign for greater effectiveness.

    Learning >> Workability >> Effectiveness.

    "Fault" and "Blame" are not workable. "Make wrong" is not workable. (And by my making those observations, it is my intention to NOT be blaming anyone, or accusing anyone of blaming anyone, or finding fault, or accusing anyone of finding fault.... rather, I'd like to point out the difficulty in our language of crafting truly empowering, win-win communications... which is ultimately the basis for "what works".)

    Dis-empowering our allies for doing less than they could or should weakens our alliances.  But sometimes temporarily we may need to go thru those emotional and mental processes -- "What's wrong with me?" -- "What's wrong with you?" -- "What's wrong with us?" -- "What's wrong with them?".... to be able to activate the learning processes that lead to designing workable approaches for working together to make things better.

    Learning >> Workability >> Effectiveness.

    What is at stake is, well, everything. Therefore effectiveness is, well, important. Therefore letting go of old approaches that were less workable and designing and adopting new approaches that can be more workable ... would be, well, wise.

    Everybody on this thread is well meaning. Everyone cares about the health and well being of our ecosystem. Everyone here is way ahead of the curve compared to the mainstream of the citizenry. But even we are just feeling our way forward, making our own ways from old paradigms as we craft the seeds of something new that will be sustainably workable for life on planet Earth.

    Learning >> Workability >> Effectiveness.

    Let's move beyond, and co-create what is workable.

    Learning >> Workability >> Effectiveness.

    #3: ensure network neutrality; #2: ensure electoral integrity; #1: ensure ecosystemic sustainability.
