From: List for transpartisan leaders and innovators [mailto:TRANSPARTISAN@LISTS.THATAWAY.ORG] On Behalf Of Lawrence Chickering Sent: Friday, March 14, 2014 8:52 AM To: TRANSPARTISAN@LISTS.THATAWAY.ORG Subject: Re: [TRANSPARTISAN] The Uninvolved Citizen and Transpartisanship

Dear Don,

Thank you for this powerful statement. Your vision of Spiral Dynamics aligns

completely with my own view of advancing consciousness of the self, which I

adapted from Rudolf Steiner's teachings and is also aligned with Hegel's writings

on consciousness of freedom. I am attaching two papers I have written on

related subjects: first a background paper I wrote in 1997 for an Asia

Foundation U.S.-Asia Dialogue on Community and Citizenship; and second,

published in Policy Review in 2012, a paper on Educate Girls Globally and its work in

the most traditional and tribal communities in India. (I dislike the title; our title

was 'Empowering the Poor: The Role of Civil Society Organizations'.)

EGG's experience shows it is possible to promote changes in the concept of self

fairly quickly in a way that supports movement toward modern democratic

and economic institutions and values. Since the process is entirely organic,

it is also politically stable: we have not encountered any significant opposition

or conflict in 7,000 schools serving about 800,000 children; and governments

in India are now pushing us to accelerate expansion of the program, while

funding significant parts of it.

I would of course welcome any thoughts or comments you may have in

response to these.
