Is there a movie, a TED talk, a podcast that was so impactful, that you changed your behavior?
Zann Gill and I have done some small circle POW!(Power Our World) sessions where everyone brought a trailer of an impactful movie to share. It turns out it is really hard to point to one that actually changed our behavior. There are many films that opened our eyes and changed our perspective, but very few that moved us to action.
It reminds me of that old Greek story where after one orator's speech people would say: "He is so brilliant with words!" and after the next speaker, they all jumped up with a fist in the air yelling "Let's kill Spara!" and rushed out to war.
As our phones an social media is woven into all of our lives, there is a small chance, that tonight's film The Social Dilemma is one that moves us to change, hopefully not out to war, but to do something about these dilemmas.
Please join us for the movie and the discussion afterward this Wednesday, September 9th 6pm PST. Sign up and get the Google Meetup link at the Social Dilemma" Watch & Discuss Party Eventbrite post.
