Making the Connection

What, realistically, would it take to unite us in community? What are the most basic understandings that we can agree upon as a basis for connection to one another? According to the Interaction Institute of Social Change, the process involves three key components: network building; power, equity and inclusion; and love as a force for change. That is a policy platform that I could stand behind were it to be implemented effectively. Can you imagine the US government using love as a force for change instead of force as a deadly assault on change?
