The leaders, decision-makers have the benefit of information, ideas made available through various channels.
The outsiders can only suggest ideas, information and the possibilities which they consider as logical and sensible on the basis of limited information with them.
There may be many routes to choose with each having some plus and minus points.
It is for the leaders to choose the path which is comfortable, better for the interests of the party.
The outsiders may have fixed notions about adopting a particular path. They need not be right.
This moment cannot just pass! The popularly-elected president of #Somaliland escorted his predecessor to the airport in a familiar show of respect for former leaders who peacefully handed over power. This is yet another moral challenge to the outsiders to see #Somaliland. https://t.co/jFawC0W6Ul
@cr4yola the Outsiders and SE Hinton are my favorite book and author. I've been aware of the drama surrounding the book's mature content for quite a while. The book has been challenged by schools and communities and bored moms since 1986.
@parabasis I’m including Junior High because some of my faves were read there:
The Diary of Anne Frank
The Great Gatsby
The Scarlett Letter
Strangely, when I reread some of these as an adult they didn’t have the same impact. And I don’t remember 80% of what we read.
