If the public doesn’t care….
If the public doesn’t read anymore, one can make videos to deliver the message (given the time and the proper equipment).
If the public is easily bored and is saturated with interactive entertainment, then one can make quizzes and games and even mobile “apps” to compete for their attention (given the time and the proper equipment).
If the public doesn’t donate, one can search for a way to raise his own money to support the effort.
If the public is stuck on faulty paradigms, one can write extensively to disprove those paradigms and to offer better ones….and then turn those writings into videos, games, and other entertaining forms of communication.
If the public (or the media) won’t spread the word on one’s efforts, one can search out ways to promote his own efforts (if he can raise the money for it).
But what can one do if the public doesn’t care?
Suddenly, it is no longer the message to the public that is the matter at hand, but the reformation of the public itself. It is hard to imagine a more fundamental problem than this, or one of any greater scope. Indeed, the problem of the needed public paradigm shift is orders of magnitude greater than the mere problem of organizing a collaborative solution for the decline in the rule of law amongst interested people.
Thus do we “leave our finger” here at the ROLR website while we go off to work on the more fundamental problem. It will come down to whether individuals can be converted from their current passive nature into effective leaders of others. It will come down to whether they will adopt the paradigms of rationality, truth, and self correction, which all should be prerequisites for anyone seeking to change the paradigms of others.
Time will tell. So much is at stake.
