Overcoming Symmetry

I have written before about the asymmetry of power when a small local community group goes up against a developer with his millions, his armies of PR agents and, often enough, the institutional (and taxpayer-funded) power of City Hall.  Compared to that vast arsenal, the few dollars that can be collected by donations to the group seem even more puny than David’s legendary slingshot.

However, skill and passionate enthusiasm can overcome a great deal as the No Tower Coalition has proven time and time again.  Now, they have managed to produce an intelligent 8-minute video explaining their position.

It is well worth the time!
