Which ideas shift and disrupt systems of injustice to provide a more equitable future? Who is catalyzing this type of social empowerment?
My essay will be centrally focused around the work of social entrepreneurs as change-makers. I am interested in exploring the rise of the not-for-profit sector, the themes of positivism, mental avidity, integrated responsibility, criticality of public perception, and systemic causation. With a selection of case studies, I propose to examine the impact of local community facilitators on the global landscape, with specific emphasis on retooling the machinery of politics in order to precipitate revolution.
This will lay the groundwork for a comparison between micro-finance and ‘micro-consulting’, extending to methods for harvesting knowledge capital created at the Beal Institute and making it both actionable and accessible to the creatively impoverished.
