HOUSTON. IT IS TIME FOR A NEW SOCIAL PARADIGM.
Is fundamentally based on values, expectations, and obligations
Centers around who has the ability to do "what" in our society
Primarily focused around democratic principles involving:
Collaboration and Conflict
We will endure much conflict with little chance of collaboration, if we cannot develop a new social paradigm.
Houston's new social paradigm emerges as the strain of a new and difficult time demands focus,
a re-examination of the terms under which Houstonians live and work with one another.
Evolving Awareness of Our Common Bonds
The new vision will initially feel uncomfortable and unfamiliar as it forces society to deal with
previously unrecognized demands. Ultimately, if the vision is a true one, a new sense of values,
broad agreement on common responsibilities, and obligations will emerge.
Connecting Communities for Critical Conversations
