The Problem With Our Maps

Conventional cartographic techniques have caused us to have a skewed perception of the true size of countries. Can an equal-area map provide clarity?

December 19 marks the anniversary of the establishment of the Civilian Public Service (CPS), a World War II-era program that provided conscientious objectors alternatives to military service. About 12,000 conscripted men and many women volunteers participated, many of whom represented the three historic "peace churches": the #Quakers, the Church of the Brethren, and the Mennonites.

This program saw people tasked with labor in the fields of forestry, agriculture, and firefighting through agencies like the National Parks Service. Others worked in social services, including at facilities that addressed the needs of people with varying mental health experiences. Still others allowed themselves to be subjected to medical experimentation, including exposure to disease, tests on the effects of starvation, and more harrowing experiences.

The initiatives of CPS afforded these people ways to serve their country without taking up arms or engaging in conflict directly. For many, their time with CPS served as formative experiences that sparked lifetimes of service, and CPS continues to serve as an example of ways to serve in pursuit of peace.

Cussing alert in this post.

Nobody lasts long in this world of supporting people with disabilities without finding themselves in a WTF? situation.

There are few or no options.
The only existing options are segregated.
The expectations are abysmally low.
Even good people are unsure how to move forward.

If I’m wrong, and you’ve never been frustrated with a reality like this then reply to this email and tell me.

But I’m guessing that you can relate in some capacity.

Because this is such a common reality, people like the guests on today’s podcast have developed learning institutes, learning journeys, and person-centred planning approaches to explore blue space - new space where creative possibilities can be created.

This week on the podcast, Beth Mount, Hanns Meissner and Pamela Mansell discuss what it takes to create new spaces when what exists just won’t do. It takes bravery, finding your people and being willing to journey together. https://goodthingsinlife.org/137
