Example text

Readers may already be thinking that the separation of international, national, state and city routes unrealistically closes off additional routes. This was done for simplicity. The reader may now wish to draw some of these in. For example, sometimes people attempt to influence their national government to work toward strengthening peacekeeping forces in the United Nations. During the Vietnam War efforts were made in some cities to get city councils to take a stand against the war. It was hoped that this would tend to diminish the tenacity with which the national government was pursuing the war.

Very surprising is how rapidly some have become effective leaders through the exercise of responsibility while receiving facilitative support. There is a natural tendency for people to turn to friends and friends of friends when searching for collaborators in a new activity. This may tend to isolate this activity from the larger community. CITW has helped groups to obtain links to new participants and related activities. This had been possible because research and involvement in a number of activities have given us broader knowledge of international activity in the city than most other participants.

In the early stages CITW provided most of these thing for the community projects in which it has been involved. Sometimes it is a delicate and difficult matter to withdraw this support, but this is vitally necessary if an activity is to become an independent organization in the community. In the community projects under discussion, leadership support has meant the recruitment of leaders out of people involved primarily because of interest in an activity. Those seeking power and influence largely for its own sake tend not to become involved in highly risky projects on apparently marginal issues.
