A new website sounds interesting, but what do you want to achieve with it specifically?
I’ve had my own ideas about what would be the most effective action - I think the personal growth spiritual side is extremely vital and I’ve often thought we need to incorporate that more, over just the political side.
Because to be honest, political action can seem boring if you’re not so personally affected by it. I’ve thought maybe we need a kind of ‘personal revolution’ first. For me it’s been massively more important to focus on myself and solve all the problems and issues with my own self/personality, rather than getting involved with politics by itself.
A website though is a lot of work (if people are unmotivated) and would need to be maintained, possibly by someone who needs to show a government ID, and you also would be wanting to use plain html to avoid problems with hackers messing with the site.
An interesting idea to me is more of an unfiltered discussion about what effective plans of action are… what ways would be more effective of drawing attention online. But then I’ve thought about it carefully and I realized that it’s probably for the best not to attract any trolls, hackers or burned-out negative discussions.
Mr. Robot has a website and Twitter hashtag participation thing - that’s exciting… but it’s also never quite clear enough, is it? How do we attract all the right people who are like us? Isn’t that our main task?
The record shows
I took the blows
And did it my way
It’s one of the very difficult questions and now that we’re in an era with the newer technology, maybe some new ideas can be had; or maybe this kind of thinking itself is way too complicated to ever be expected from anyone, and the only likely compossible ways forward are the more practical ways of putting a solid call to action out there and leading by example.
