Choosing Life Over Death
Win O'Toole • 20 December 2003

Responding to the "Autopsy" article (Boyer, 17/12/03), what purpose does it serve? How does it inspire people?

The root of 'autopsy' means to see for oneself. I see death as a predominant metaphor in your pages.

An approach which purports to bring change must be different. It must bring something unique.

Movements do not die; they have no presence. They are derived from human desire and spirt. It is insitutions that die when their inspirations are no longer felt. Human desire, agreement, and inspiration are indestructable.

Is leadership about pronouncing death or breathing new life into dying institutions that are meant to support human inspirations and ways of life.
