BELOW: Video of Lakey’s talk at the People’s Forum NYC, January 2023 (1:15)
BELOW: Lakey’s video based on his How We Win guide (30 min.) explains why
“polarization is the forge that heats systemic change” now, as it did in the 1930s
and 1960s in the US and Scandinavia. Also see the Trailer for his new bio-pic.
BELOW: The Chinese character for “Crisis” means danger and opportunity.
Activists must use today’s crises to win major systemic or structural change,
as our ancestors did in the 1930s and 1960s in the U.S. and Scandinavia.
No need to “reinvent the wheel” — change is made from “ideas lying around.”
