What do you think about David Cameron`s idea of the `Big Society` ?
How are people persuaded to act in the way you want ?
(a).By the way of power-force them.
(b).By the way of money-bribe them.
(c).By the power of love and friendship.
Suppose you are in a position of total power and decide to share it with nine others. You are left with one-tenth of what you had.
Suppose you have £1,000 and decide to share it with nine others. You are left with one-tenth (£100) of what you had.
Suppose you decide to share your love and friendship with nine others. How much do you have left ? Not less but more; perhaps even ten times more. Why ? Because love, friendship and trust are the only things that exist by sharing. The more we share, the more we have.
Power and money both have the same result; if we win, you lose. If you win, I lose. With love and friendship we both win ! The health of a society depends upon them.
If this is what David Cameron and his `Big Society` is all about, let`s give it a go !
