The community, organizing sentiment into action, sets standards of behavior and holds each other accountable to these standards. That’s the origin of the social contract.
Our community expresses it’s sentiment in the social media space. We’ve already outlined our standards of behavior. It’s time to hold ourselves accountable to each other. Hence, #TheSocialContract
We’re going to launch a contract for us all to sign, pledging our intent to Move To Detroit. Clearly, this isn’t a legally binding contract. This is a comittment – a show of hands – an effort to organize a group of people that would move into Detroit, if only they had a network / community of friends to support them.
We’ve already got the community.
This community needs to hold itself accountable and not just be another group of people sitting and talking, but a group of action. Sure, signing an imaginary contract isn’t action – but it’s a start.
If you told 50 of your friends you were moving into Detroit, do you think they’d hold you accountable? I bet they would.
Let us help you tell more than 50 of your friends. Let us help you tell the world.
Who’s ready to sign #TheSocialContract?
