Isn’t this an act of “preaching to the choir”? This appeal is to North American youth who are already on board. The North American division, by and large, is on board:
We must become intolerant of institutional injustice. (We already are. That is why we are already ordaining women and will continue to do so.)
We must value and maximize the power of our influence. (The fact that we have done so is why we are currently in crisis)
We must take a renewed interest in the role and responsibility of our investments. (We are currently intensely interested and all of our investments are currently in jeopardy because of that interest).
You will find no ideological argument, by and large, from North American youth and no matter what they do, they will be opposed by those in geographic areas of the work where there is overwhelming popular support for GC policy. A revolution among North American youth has been in progress for several years and it is expressed in the attrition statistics. One must make the case to these young people that engagement (which they view as complicity) has value over whatever else they might find to do with their time and energy.
