Lions Roar : January 2005
SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2005 97 tion I hasten to add, has made the idea of localism less and less likely, in a country where there is a proud tradition of localism and local control. I think what we need to do as communicators is find a way to restore that localism, which is the main- stay of public discourse in this country. Is the problem then that the discourse is too national, that it’s taking place at a level where it can be controlled by a few very sig- nificant forces? Should we be talking about returning public discourse to the local, town hall level? DVORKIN: Well, when you say local, it doesn’t mean that all people want is local information. They’re seeking a combina- tion of local issues, rooted in the place where they live, and intelligent discus- sion of national and international issues as well. KINGWELL: That’s an important point to keep in mind. I don’t think anybody wants a complete turning away from these responsibilities, which is sometimes what local focus can mean. It’s a cliché to say, “Think globally, act locally,” but it does remind us why all of these issues are so important to us. It’s not because we are citizens of this or that country, but that together we are all citizens of the planet. American policy has a dispropor- tionate effect on what happens every- where on the planet and that’s why those of us who don’t live there nevertheless are concerned with it. This is a classic case of concern, and the question then is, What can we do so we can actually make a difference as individuals? © *** Shambhala Sun, ISSN 1190-7886, published bimonthly.
