The Philosophy Class

It’s funny how an off the cuff comment about how to effect political change sticks. To the point the woman leading the class wants to use it to help end homelessness. To the point where she’s drafting a letter with all our names on it and a group photo that will go the Atlanta City Council.

I had explained how to get the respect of politicians either willingly or begrudgingly. You kind of have to be like white on rice with them. When you think about it they’re people just like us. You’ll see them in the supermarkets, on the street etc. Just introduce yourself and ask how they’re doing. Then launch into a discussion on your topic and why you support the view that you do.

I hadn’t realized that philosophy could launch into action like that but hey glad I could get the ball rolling.
