That's the feeling I got when I saw the results of the Neighborhood Summit held just a month ago. See my 8/29 post. The plan is to start right up with Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). That's the smiley faced invader who knocks on your door and wants to know all about you 'for the community.' You'll be asked to answer a questionnaire about your talents so that you can then be 'volunteered' to do your part in the 'community'. This is called 'mapping'. Yes, you'll be entered into a data-base that is coded to your location, and identifies your responses as well as the observations of the 'interviewer'. These questionnaires are very detailed, extremely detailed, and break tasks down into many parts so that much will be known about you. The way you respond, your attitude, the condition of your home, who is in it with you, what books you have in your house, your comments, all will be recorded.
Because you'll be needed to do mandatory volunteering, or perhaps because you won't, or aren't able to do it, and that is important information.
Listen, my friend. This is serious. We truly are in a deeply dangerous time. Share this information with your friends, family, neighbors, in casual conversation. Spread the word. Asset based community development is here.
You are the asset.
