Mobilizing goodwill

Synonyms:
Furthering goodwill
Spreading goodwill
Building bridges of goodwill
Description:
Bringing together people who care about the problems they see around them with the intent of developing a consciousness which emanates altruistic love rather than hatred and competition.
Context:
In an era of great complexity, social problems are so interrelated that it is simply overwhelming to focus action in one direction.
Claim:
Mobilizing goodwill recognizes that it is people's attitudes which, to a large degree, create the possibility of real change happening.
Counter Claim:
1. Mobilizing goodwill is an intentionally vague strategy. It is more effective for its practitioners than for society as a whole.

2. Focusing on attitudes alone does not produce actual social change.
