I’ve just returned from a very interesting small conference in Arizona, where we were talking about philanthropy, discovery and education. And I have some questions for you all…
- What if the essential political questions of our time – the questions that ask “how should we do things?” – were not about right vs. left but bottom-up vs. top down? What would that do to the political spectrum and its discourse?
- What if our work was about creating space – for discovery, connection and collaboration – rather than narrowing down options and coming up with answers?
- What if accountability was about trust, intimacy and love, and not measurement, punishment and suspicion? How would we foster such a system? What would it mean for politics, governance, leadership and community?
I’d be really curious about your answers, or further questions that are suggested by this short list.
