The breakdown of relationship between change makers and the mainstream needs to be bridged. I thought I could, in the words of Buckminster Fuller, “build the new and make the old obsolete.” I no longer think it is that simple. I am more into this quotation from T.S. Eliot: "Hell is where nothing connects." Or this one from G.K. Chesterton: “In the breaking of bridges is the end of the world.”

My experience of change leadership and participatory approaches is that it demands people shift their world view. This means their beliefs about themselves, their work, their community, what results are, etc., all have to change.
