Guest post: bettering the world

I usually just live my life with my own thoughts and ideals - without really expending any energy to convince anyone else that one way or another is better. I guess I'm used to seeing others do something "wrong" - and I can just think I'm better than them, without worrying about changing them. But I'm starting to think more like a leader: if I want to live in the world I want to live in, or if I'm going to make it a better world, then I need to spread what I believe in and convince others to adopt my ways. Leading by example is good, but better if you're public about it, and try to raise awareness and convince others to see the light. That's how you can impact the world better, and hopefully make it a better place. -JS

Remember who used to say "You can't get shot for what you don't say?" Not really a good way to live unless you are in Stalin's Russia...

Great idea!

Yeah, totally, you gotta spread the word. Personally, I was really glad to see Bloomberg initiate "bike only" streets on weekends this summer, and sponsor legislation making it illegal to keep air-conditioned store doors open in the summer, two things I railed about in my blog. While I have no way of knowing where he got these ideas (aside from the letter I wrote to him 7 years ago), I like to imagine that these thoughts percolated through the public consciousness and eventually made their way to him.

You should start a blog!

I guess the other course of action could be more passive aggressive: ride your bike as if it is a bike-only street ... live in the reality you want to live in, and then maybe others will have to accomodate and live inthat same world.
