I would definitely dial that enthusiasm down a little. Anyone who cared 
to check
knows how important of a role Stanford plays as an arm of the military 
complex. Regardless of how many "transformations" LTT (claims to have) 
we are not living in some fairyland! Love and music are both great, I do 
SF "yt" lectures, nevertheless there is no room for naivety, no time to 
on projects / initiatives steered to lead  nowhere. Without going into 
pleas please please don't be this naive, you are actually harming 
people. Let me put
it clearly, people might *die* because of such naivety. How many 
whistle-blowers died because of people like you? How many hundreds if 
not thousands
fell victim to wikileaks and all the "good" people knowingly or 
unknowingly propagating
their carefully constructed image? Do you _know_ who the people in that 
org are?

No, you don't

Please, don't harm people
