Ok, I understand that they're asking us to do more than talk, but to do something else. ("Movement, protest, or campaign" is a little vague, don't you think?)
The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it. When is the last time you stood up against something you did not agree with. Did you just sit back and complain about the topic, law, or idea. Why did you not start a movement, protest, or campaign. As humans it is your duty to be an equal, to stand up and fight for every right we are to be granted in life.
I'm not used to thinking of thousands of minds as a collective. Is that similar to the hundreds of minds in Congress as a collective? Granted, Congress has lobbyists, corruption, greed and all that stuff, but they are a group of hundreds finding their own direction after agreeing on a course of action. Is Congress a good analogy?
So it is anyone's guess which direction it will go in the future, it's the result of thousands of minds as a collective.
What happens when there is disagreement? Does work on that question come to a halt? Majority rules? But maybe I'm over-thinking again.
There is a lot of disagreement, but we are divided by none.
