We will be doing a 3 minute promotional video for the 1000 True Fans – 1000 Global Villages campaign this summer, and a 15 minute documentary on OSE this fall. Sean Church – a student at the University of Missouri, Kansas City, Film Program – will be taking this on as part of his studies. He visited us recently, began taking footage, and we copied all of our old footage for him. We are planning time lapse photography in the mix. This looks like a great opportunity to distribute our message in a more professional way.
Regarding the True Fans campaign, we started it a year ago aiming for a 1000 True Fans withing 6 months. A year later, we’re at 70 subscribers – slightly below our goal. This reality is different that what we expected, and I think it is fair to say that people don’t really want to be free or take on the full responsibility for the world around them.
As scarce as truth is, the supply has always been in excess of the demand. – J. Billings
I’m not saying this lightly – as my conclusion comes from hundreds if not thousands of conversations on the important topic of human progress and evolution to freedom. Thousands of years into recorded human civilization, the government plantation remains attractive. This is a longer philosophical discussion.
I still struggle with answering why people are so satisfied with mediocrity, when things could be so much better. A good question still remains – exactly how much of this condition stems from a natural course of events, versus strict economic planning on the global chessboard. It seems to me that there is an uneasy feeling in the air, and change to post-scarcity is waiting to happen. Subscribe.
