The concept is this, There is no better way to teach than to interact. Therefore, we must educate in person, one on one with people every where, every day. But this is not just a catch as catch can casual conversation, This would be an all out campaign to inform the public en masse every where every day. I feel that environmental crisis is the most Unifying grass roots campaign to bring the general public to a new social awareness. I have a great format already fully developed with a tshirt focus point for the educators. Please contact me and lets get this thing started because we need to get to the Hundredth Monkey ASAP.

Funny you mention the hundredth monkey, we were recently talking about syncing and experiencing new ideas that were not our own. When you are watching for it, you'll see more of it, just like when you buy a new car you suddenly become aware how many of the same are actually on the road.

People come here to recruit, not to be recruited, and we are all very busy.

Can you share your system without me having to share my email? Copy-paste all your stuff, if possible.

Have a look at this, let me know if you have questions. Have you heard of the 99% Conglomerate idea yet?

Superstorm Sandy hit the town i live in on the Jersey Shore very hard flooding many of the homes. I was one of the lucky ones though, but not by much. I had left (Oct 27) two days before the hurricane hit for a 6 week visit to Alaska. Had my home been flooded, it would have meant returning home almost right away.

This iconic scene, (below link) of a roller coaster in the ocean is about 3 miles west...on the barrier isalnd where a new inlet opened which caused much of the mainland to flood http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNLGd5viASE

Then i just returned from another visit to Alaska where they have been having the warmest summer that people can remember. Much of the time i was there, it was in the 80s and low 90s even. A town called Talkeetna where hikers leave from to climb Denali, had a record breaking 96/98 degrees. The previous high was 91

Today my little town had a town-wide yard sale. As i rode around on my bike, I took time to talk with several residents to see how the storm affected their lives. One woman I talked to had just gotten back into her home in June as the walls had to be completely stripped of the sheet rock and insulation, and it needed to be completely rewired. She had also lost many belongings personal and otherwise.

Then I ended up talking to the mayor of our little town at his home. He told me how the state is playing politics with the aid to towns, and the towns that had elected officials who were connected got the most. Our town isn't one of those towns. I asked him if he thought that this has raised people's awareness that global warming is upon us, and that it is caused by man. He definitely thought so. I then went on to tell him that I was in Occupy, and what wonderful people there are in this group and the good work they are doing on raising awareness as to what is going on in this country on a whole bunch of different levels.

He was very concerned with his young teen daughter's future, so we went on to talk about university debt, and the lack of opportunities when graduating. He inherrantly knew that this country was in big trouble. I reminded him though that there are many altruistic groups working to turn this around....that networking and organizing are pervasive....that people are aware of the criminality that brought on the near 2008 melt-down, and that our government answers to banking interests, not ours.... I also reminded him that systemic change always comes from the bottom up. He was very receptive to what I had to say

I had more interesting conversations with people, some of which were only to ask them how high the water was in their homes, and/or to tell them of the great work Occupy Sandy has done, and to tell them what super people are in Occupy. I also met a retired commodities broker, who sees little hope of change, and who wants to continue our conversation.

Aside from having as many conversations as I can in my everyday life about what has been going on in this country for the past 30 plus years, I also leave informative flyers off at different businesses and libraries regularly, and they can be found from NJ to AK...lol

My point without insinuating I am doing anything special is; We should all be doing simular things to advance our struggle. That's all.
