Changed my mind
I just changed my mind over the last hour after looking through this. Time is running out in Europe, we gotta use our little resources wisely if we want to have any effect …
[You can watch with English subs!]
Basically, if we really want to be a social enterprise, we want to be valued for solving social problems. If consultancy contributes just to our clients’ indulging in academic discussions, and to politics as usual, it’s not worth the effort. Independent of any finances.
Which means, if we don’t have and follow our own agenda of what to solve and how, we’re not social enterprise. If teh consulting contributes to solve the problems we want to solve, all fine. If we do consulting to extract money from wealthy clients in politics and establishment, it makes no sense.
To the point: How to build a self-sustaining organization that brings on the revolution?
(The “revolution enterprise” will seek a democratic revolution of course, like it has been started in Iceland, sadly stuck now. But it has to be this profound shift in society that we all know has to come …)
@Nadia: We had a little discussion about this lately. Seems I changed sides now
