Jacob: Local communities can surely agree on and find really innovative ways they can provide for each other.

Arty: The magic can only happen with the existing system being out of the way and space being created for the people with the spaces and the people with the programs to work together around the shared interest.

Willem: Our culture has all these impediments to navigating complex systems in wise ways. We should get out of the way of people we have more power than and listen to the system and provide resources to the system.
