The Question (ID Number 408)...
...and the response:You're working with some false assumptions. My message IS being heard by people like corporate chairmen (see the story of Ray Anderson, for example). I recently spoke at the EnvironDesign3 conference in Baltimore, attended by representatives of companies like DuPont and Monsanto, where I received a standing ovation (and invitations to address corporate groups). Certainly some will hear without understanding---there's nothing unusual about that. Men like Einstein and Freud were far less well understood at this stage in their careers that I am. And certainly some will hear without being moved. Has ANY new message EVER won over 100% of its audience? Charles Darwin's ideas initially made him an object of derision, and after 140 years, they're still hotly disputed. Why should I be discouraged? Far from being discouraged, I never imagined I would reach as many people as I have.
