don't ask the boss
Once they have gained some traction, visions have consequences and those consequences deserve investigation not so much among the visionaries but among those who have attached their wagons to the vision itself. Don't ask the boss.
To my mind, this is an exercise that has relevance not just when assessing social activities -- the stuff on the 'outside' -- but also deserves to be exercised within. Sure, anyone can believe in god or money or whatever. Anything can have that shiny, come-hither capacity. Peace and relief and meaning and a hundred other benefits can beckon.
So much for the visionary. So much for the governor.
But as a kindness, I think investigating the ways in which the bright vision is executed is important ... and probably much more important than the vision itself.
Wallowing in brightness can starve a (wo)man to death.
