The name of this blog, Rainbow Juice, is intentional.
The rainbow signifies unity from diversity. It is holistic. The arch suggests the idea of looking at the over-arching concepts: the big picture. To create a rainbow requires air, fire (the sun) and water (raindrops) and us to see it from the earth.
Juice suggests an extract; hence rainbow juice is extracting the elements from the rainbow, translating them and making them accessible to us. Juice also refreshes us and here it symbolises our nutritional quest for understanding, compassion and enlightenment.

Working in the System (Pros and Cons Survey)

I'm interested to know what those of you who have been working for social justice think of working within or outside "the system".  What are the pros and cons of each?

If you are interested then please complete this survey within the next week or so.  I will then collate responses and write up the results in a future blogpost.

Just a word about terminology.  When I mention working "within the system" I'm thinking of governmental bureaucracies, local government, political parties etc.  I hope you get the drift.

Anyway, here's a link to the survey.  I hope that you enjoy the thinking that it may stimulate.

Postscript (added 25 September 2012).
The results of this short survey have now been written up as a 3-part posting.  Part 1 looks at the pros and cons of working inside the system.  Part 2 looks at the pros and cons of working outside the system.  Part 3 explores the effectiveness of working inside or outside thew system.
