Tonight we are having dozens of friends at our event to watch the documentary “Fed Up”. Hopefully after the movie I will get an opportunity to share with everyone a brief idea of all of the information that I have gradually compiled on these pages over the days since April 1 this year.
If you don’t get a chance to come to the showing tonight, the documentary itself is available in DVD form from Amazon.com, where I got my copy that we will watch tonight, its available for rent or sale from iTunes store, and probably from other places where you can get documentaries online (Netflix).
Tonight is kind of the test run for taking the message of One Small Change at a Time to a larger, live audience. Not knowing in any way how large my readership may be, this will be the first time I will be speaking about these topics where I will be certain that there even IS and audience. I will be nervous and expectant for debate and thoughtful criticism. Occasionally here I have received helpful advice and criticism from a few voices, and I am always thankful for that.
Many of you I am sure have had questions or doubts that you just kept to yourselves. You didn’t want to interrupt, didn’t want to interject doubt, introduce debate. That’s too bad. All of science demands critical thought, and it demands questions and doubts. The comments here depend on your input, and when you had it I wish you had shared it. If you blog and I have been to your blog, don’t doubt that I read your words with a critical eye. Had I had a question or argument, I have posted it on your site, you might remember me. All of this is done with the goal of purifying the argument. It is done with the idea of strengthening the science and the commitment of the people who adhere to our ideas.
I love the idea of “One Small Change,” and I believe that the reasons for undertaking the first change are unassailable. I believe that the results of sticking with that change and adding a change every time you have mastered that last change will be overwhelmingly positive. I want to encourage you all to begin. Today. One Change. Small as you can reasonably handle. Share your results. On your own blog, or on my blog here. With your family or with a wider audience. Start. Now.
