Activist Community Development Center and Alternative Library
As members of Earlham's activist community we are all in the process of
further increasing communications between different campus groups and
thereby allowing each of our groups to gain a larger collective presence
on campus. Therefore I hope you will encourage your organization to
support the proposal of an all campus social action newsletter. The
purpose of such a newsletter is to combine our groups efforts to educate
the Earlham community about issues of social concern, and to increase the
visibility and vitality of activism on our campus.
Everyone has grown up in a paradigm of three worlds. Everybody knows the
story, about how the First World is so 'democratic' and sunny, while the
Second is totalitarian and gloomy. The Third World, in this paradigm, is
terribly impoverished and exploited by the first two.
Fourth World activist newsletter is entitled so, because we
envision a Fourth World. In this vision, the paradigm of the three worlds
is subverted and transcended. The Fourth World represents a world of an
entirely new creation, free from all binding aspects of our current
We need people to write articles and poems and book or music reviews.
Anything that you can contribute will help make The Forth World Happen.
Without your support, more issues of this magazine will not happen. If you
are to busy yourself,
find someone in your organization and make sure that the issues that you
are working on get some attention.
For more information on the Forth World, to submit a contribution
or to request a copy, talk to Mike Oles at peace house or e-mail him at OlesMi@earlham.edu
