Another Ted Talk about bicycles.
Activism by accident….the building of something good because someone helped someone else….and the word got out, and soon….a lot of people were being helped and a “movement” was begun.
It’s funny how that happens.
It’s funny how small efforts can be such huge tipping points.
It’s funny how something “small” can turn into such a fulcrum for change.
And…it’s funny….in a different way….that simple efforts have “legal” stumbling blocks to overcome in order to move forward.
It’s good to be “protected”, but you have to wonder how much isn’t even attempted that might help other people….because of all the red tape you have to wade through to even get anything off the ground.
Maybe guerilla activism is the way to go?
What did my friend say? “It’s easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission”?
Maybe that’s where it’s all at? Start small, make change, keep going….and ask forgiveness when the MAN tries to shut you down?
I like this story….I like how good things can build from very humble beginnings.
That’s pretty inspiring.
After all….I already know how to do “small”.
I can handle small beginnings.
