Going Green

How many people does it take to create a trend?  A revolution?

This one made the rounds a while back, but it is interesting to think about it in the context of events in Iran over the last several months.

An interesting parallel is highlighted by Roger Cohen.  Here are some earlier thoughts by yours truly.

The Cowboy recently met David Gill, the leader of the social council that led the  citizen’s takeover of the Berlin Stasi headquarters in the German Democratic Republic (DDR) when the wall fell.  Some background here.  Yet again, you see how people are caught up in history, how events push and pull them along, and how pressures build until a dam bursts.

Whether in business or politics, the actions of individuals, in all of their mortality and frailty, are the ultimate cause of change.  People can and do make a difference.
