7 June 2016
• Our values put people over money and work to overcome barriers and everything that has ever been obtained in our society that is for the good of the people had to be fought for and has to be defended because the Athenians are always at work trying to take any security or solidarity we have away from us. [...] • We have to have power to defend our values and the more power, relationships and clarity on our self-interest and values that we have the safer we will be and the more the world will reflect our values and not Corporate values and agenda. [...] AGITATION: Definition of Agitation: “Agitation is the act of helping someone gain clarity on their values and how those values relate to the other legs of their triangle.” List an example of when you were successfully agitated. [...] VALUES: What values do you hold most dear? Why do you do the work you do? SELF-INTEREST: Definition of Self-Interest: “The tangible manifestation of our values and what motivates us to act beyond our immediate wants and needs. [...] Power is organized people and organized money” Think about the powerful people on the board and write down how you are like them and define your power base, your ability to control, create and prevent change.
