the doing: love letters

the submission:

what overwhelms you?

“it feels like this is the root issue, from which everything else grows. A lack of ethics is everywhere – from right at the top, seen in politicians making dubious decisions in favour of those who donate to their party; all the way down to anti- vaccinators trying to sway others against their own and society’s good (usually for their own status and wealth). If people overwhelmingly made ethical decisions, we’d have gone a long way towards solving housing, education, medical issues, poverty and reducing the harm we do to the environment.”

think time allocated: 60 mins

the rebel meetings were often rowdy, at times moving. there was vodka.  a consensus was reached.  the submissions were thunked.

winning idea

pvi rebels will pen handwritten love letters on our best pink paper to luxury cars from items of less value: other cars, the road, traffic lights.  these love letters were then hand delivered lovingly to luxury cars in port adelaide.

where does it need to take place?

personal confrontation but without shaming.

are there any legal implications to the activity?
