Proceed with impudence, humour and hope! It rests with you.
Artists, typists, and retail associates!
All have flocked to the cause!
All have sung songs of victory, thoughtful and proud!
Can you feel the earth sway and tilt beneath your feet?
The coming twilight season beckons.
As the ice cream stands fold up shop and the snowbirds prepare for their inexorable journey south, what most becomes a revolutionary?
Resistance? Persistence? Snowshoes?
What will you do now?
Exercise your mental marksmanship! Brandish your wit!
Incite your own actions! And remember that the correct handling of contradiction among the people
We are filled with fear and exultation. Consideration Liberation Army says: Throw yourself into the mad embrace of big ideas! Demand consideration and give it without restraint!
But, how to be heard? Above the rattle and clang of developers dreams, through the fuzz and holler of advertisers clamour?
How do we reach beyond this somnambulistic miasma?
How does one measure the success of a revolution?
By inches, decibels, or magnetic resonance imaging?
Calipers or sick days taken? Birth rates, death rates,
Consideration Liberation Army asks:
With what instruments can one weigh a good idea?
With what analytical tool can one describe the euphoria
of actions well pondered? What mode of statistical
breakdown would adequately draw the picture of peoples
joined together in hope?
Acrobats, dishwashers, and firefighters…
Television personalities, and literati…
Be concerned. Be aware. Be forewarned.
The Summer of Thought is upon us!
Consideration Liberation Army is an unstoppable force dedicated to a summer-long reign of thoughtfulness. Winnipeg will be overcome with introspection, consideration will abound, and ideas will dominate. Concepts will be traded with the ease and fervor of hockey cards. Metaphor will be irresistible. Kindness the new normal.
Can you stop us? No. Can you join us? Yes. Cast off the sunblock and burn with the incandescent glow of revolutionary thought. Watch the video communiqués, listen on the streets, monitor the website, and raise a glass to revolutionary bliss!
This is the Summer of Thought, 2007
