1. Have been exploring relationship between shift to #RegenerativeEconomy, #SustainableDevelopment + #Diversity, which has led to discussions on tolerance/hate, racism/fascism, political divides. Maybe atypical territory for sustainability, yet it's key imho. Some findings:
2. Beliefs are hard to change, "convincing" people is not a viable tactic, arguing w facts only serves to further entrench if listener isn't seeking to understand. Can be frustrating - feels like arguing against gravity sometimes. Critical to realize I too am entrenched. #Listen
3. Focusing on what's wrong/bad generates energy, but not the energy we need. Better: emphasize real e.g.'s of positive alternatives, while not ignoring horrific realities. Reminds me of #BuckminsterFuller's "build new better system/render old obsolete" guidance. #Evolve

💥 THREAD 💥 #NeverNDP (1 of 13)

The #ON #NDP are not the answer. #Horwath as failed time and again. I have no idea why the party has kept her in this long. This will be her 4th? 5th? loss. It's a very dumb party. Any other party would have replaced her after the 2nd loss. ...2
Don't believe what you read/hear about @fordnation! Slanderous lies and fake narratives that everyone just runs with; even the media.

He's not a drug dealer. For heaven-sake! Ridiculous lies. Did he sell weed when he was 18? Who knows. F%ck, it was the 80s. Who didn't? 😜 ...3
He loved his brother. He tried so hard to help him; to protect him. Rob (a great guy) was mentally ill. An addict. At the lowest point in his life. And the media (the Toronto Star mostly) completely butchered him. What he needed was compassion. ...4

... or we must conclude that 20-25% of Ontarians who intended to vote for PC for months & years, suddenly in the last 2 weeks abandoned all their principles and decided to vote for NDP b/c of some NothingBurger attacks.

You be the judge. I believe that's IMPOSSIBLE!
