Ron Paul and Manhood

Here's a cool article on Ron Paul in NYTimes (of all places) "The Web Takes Ron Paul for a Ride". It is about how by decentralizing the campaign, people on their own took individual responsibility and created a movement on the web, all without micromanagement by Ron Paul campaign.

And it hit me as to being very similar to my experience with J2M. We (the dads who prepared and ran the rite of passage for our sons) were given general guidance with example by other dads. And then we had to run it ourselves. And I had a blast, overall, because it opened my eyes to the freedom and possibilities of being personally responsible: we were able to customize our rites to match our sons, and it was flexible to meet the needs of the families involved, not some formula we had to follow step by step.

By decentralizing and allowing individual freedom and corresponding responsibility, great things can be accomplished, as Ron Paul campaign is showing. On a smaller scale, the same could be said about home life, Sunday School lesson, homeschooling program, or entrepreneurial endeavors!
