It took me a long way to reformat my mind

I was trained as a theoretical physicist. What I started on October 14th, 2016 is a social experiment.

It took me a long way to reformat my mind. When growing up I was taught that only one type of social experiments can exist – a revolution; and it has to involve a whole country, and no individual can conduct his/her own social experiments.

Now we know that social experiments can happen on different scales, and anyone can initiate one. We also know that, as any experiment, this experiment can fail.

However, as I always say to a student telling me: “Mr. V, I don’t know what to do to solve this problem” – “Try something, anything, there is always something you CAN do!”.

In school I learned about one of the biggest social experiment of the 20th century – “The Grate October Revolution”. Now we call it “A Bolshevik Coup of October of 1917”.

I remember an interesting fact. The Bolshevik movement started from a printing a small paper, rather a flier, called “A Spark”. The motto of the paper was “a Fire will come from a Spark.”

And – for better or worth - it did!

I hope that this campaign will become such a spark and together we will make a difference!
