A simple poll... and other ways to gather ideas

Near the bottom of this blog I've posted a simple poll titled "What could be a broad-based revolution objective?" It is a very limiting instrument and there are some choices I've thrown out including an "other" choice which encourages you to send me a twitter with your ideas.  But there is a better tool at -- as the webpage states in the registry area, "You are about to create your own website where your visitors can vote on existing ideas and upload new ones."  I encourage you to please vote on the simple poll I've set up below, but in the near future know that I will be embedding something else into this blog from the AllOurIdeas site that will let visitors to this blog contribute collaboratively to the formation of revolutionary objectives, consistent with the principle of 'revolutionary love' as described in the opening statement of this blog site.

The need for revolutionary love

There is a need for revolutionary love in a society which is transformative -- with greater frequency, violently so.  What is that?  What it means, I am thinking, is to really apply love in everything you are doing in a revolutionary way, so that if you plan change in society, the change you are planning can be developed as a way of enhancing the total well-being of people who you are working with, but it should also be designed to imbue the change you are performing as a type of love for the people who may routinely perceive change resulting from new movements as difficulty or hardship for their system or way of life.  As this concept develops further and as revolutionary practices and concepts are posted here, the revolutionary love idea will be developed further.
