Friends. It is my birthday today. Hurray. Now that is out of the way, I want to kick up a special stink today, you can call it the STINK of ROB, and I have the idea to do just that, kick up a stink. Watch this clip. It is very well done. Moreover, it clearly lays out Canada’s problem with inequality. We in the ranks of the Activists already know this stuff. So say we do something to move this knowledge a little higher up the ladder, to those not in the ranks of the 1%, but those that have a greater influence than us; City Mayors, City Police Chiefs (so they understand why we protest), to city Chamber of Commences, to presidencies of service clubs, like The Rotary Club, the Knights of Columbus, Kiwanis, the Legion, and whoever else we can think of. If you can look up one or more email address(es) and email this clip to them asking, or suggesting that they watch this, then maybe this knowledge would be moved up to a place of power that is not in their jurisdiction. Do it in your City and send it to friends in other cities across Canada, and ask them to catch the vision.
The idea is to normalize this information, so that these people of influence are not feeling that they are stepping out into a place that is unpopular, and unknown. We can help them to step up to take a more leadership role, when we need those from one step above us to step up.
I truely believe that this is a way to push the movement forward; if we commit ourselves to send at least one out, or if you see the wisdom, and the vision of this to commit yourselves to send out 1 a day, or 1 a week. Save what you write to a word processor and cut and paste, inserting the correct name, or title of the person you are sending it to, you can send your messages on with less effort, but to greater effect. And if you would like the help, I will dig up the email addresses to help our anyone that would like to join this initiative, then you would only have to put the address on your email, put in the correct name or title, and cut and paste the saved message and pop, hit the send button and you are done.
Thank you for reading my rambling dream. And if you can add to this idea, please contact me. We all have great ideas to share and some greatness in us all.
PS: I commit myself to 5 sent out today
