Collective Action

Getting one’s mind around how powerless we are as individuals in obtaining food, shelter and medicine can be a disturbing discovery. Uncovering the layers of corruption that deprive us of a decent life or future as a species can be traumatic.

Realizing our power as networks, organized to oppose the forces of greed (institutionalized in free-market regimes like the World Health Organization and WTO), requires communication. Simply consuming information in isolation accomplishes nothing; only by discussing information and what can be done with it are we able to develop effective responses.

Networks only work when the nodes connect. Don’t be afraid to ask a question or make a comment; it’s how we move toward collective action.
