Why you should read this series obsessively over the next few months:
- Learn how to say what you believe in 10 seconds or less.
- Explore how people are really experiencing your nation.
- Learn how to conduct a national census.
- Dissect our biggest (and costliest) mistakes.
- Learn how to rally your people around a cause.
- Discover how to create a prosperous nation that successfully supports the cause it represents and the people it serves.
And at least 19 and a half other foundational concepts that you need to know as the founder of your nation.
A is for A Small Nation
Before we jump into these concepts, we need to add a definition to the word “nation”. As the founders of our nation, we feel licensed to do this. Webster old pal, please forgive us.
Nation (n.): An organized, communal pursuit of an idea or cause that the people of the nation are committed to and willing to shed blood for. Not to be used interchangably with “business”,“tribe”, or “true fans” (concepts which can be used to support a nation, but not replace it or supercede it).
Do you have a nation? Do you want to build (or re-build) your nation? If you do, we made this series for you.
Meet the nation-builders
Our common pursuit is in rallying people together for a passionate cause that is worth fighting for. Any time that happens, in big or in small ways, we get a little teary-eyed. Meet the folks who are willing to shed blood for this nation. And in turn, for you and yours. (By the way, not every nation-builder is pictured here…just the human ones who collaborated on the series and are willing to wear costumes.)
Happy 4th, everyone! After we finish our watermelon, we’ll be prepping for our next part in the series: B is for Belief: Why just believing in your nation’s mission isn’t enough.
