"My personal position is that we are far more likely to change this toxic system for the better, if we stand together and aggregate our collective capabilities and resources to accomplish that goal.
No one person can accomplish this daunting task alone for obvious reasons. None of us have all the knowledge, financial resources, and so on and so forth needed to create authentic positive change. But if a decent number of us stand together, then we can aggregate everything that we need."
