The Covenant

XXResponse to James L. Wilson: There are quite a few problems with the proposed fixes for restoring the covenant to workable form. There has to be a respect for individual sovereignty, with the knowledgeable acquiescence of responsibility to people who are temporarily willing to assume power in order to accomplish a societal goal. But how can we develop horizontal structures unless all the people involved in the governance do their homework and provide expertise and leadership in a specific area of their interest. We must regain the ability to have confidence in our own ability - to not have to ask for permission or forgiveness - but just to be.
XXOn another note, enjoyed visiting with Tonya and Brad and several others looking to connect south county youth to opportunities to learn. The Douglas County Youth Summit at the Fairgrounds next Friday is the place to be.
