Vision Statement for the Liberty Movement - please share yours.Submitted by Tdogg8008 on Sun, 09/09/2012 - 20:22
I wanted to share this quick quote with you all. I've been reading The Fifth Discipline by Peter Senge (it's a book about systems thinking). This book is filled with wisdom, and provides practical advice on how we can think through what we're doing in order to make our plans more effective. I think the Liberty Movement could greatly benefit from the principles explained in this book.
An over-arching principle of systems thinking is "shared vision" in an organization. Most organizations have a vision statement, and I think the Liberty Movement should come up with its own.
Here's a quote in the book I think you'll find interesting:
"A shared vision is not an idea. It is not even an important idea such as freedom. It is, rather, a force in people's hearts, a force of impressive power. It may be inspired by an idea, but once it goes further - if it is compelling enough to acquire the support of more than one person - then it is no longer an abstraction. It is palpable. People begin to see it as if it exists. Few, if any, forces in human affairs are as powerful as shared vision."
Please feel free to share your ideas in the comments section below with what you think the vision should be for the Liberty Movement.
