At Sudbury, the judicial system is already keeping record and acting on
interference, and this has been effective. Just imagine if they desired also
to take on monitoring examples of positive influence and making these public
issues. The social reinforcement of public acknowledgement & support of
creativity could perhaps explode the SVS culture into new realms. Just
remember to objectively double check the general direction once in a while.
