Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 7/03/2023

Alan Weiss's Monday Morning Memo

Alan Weiss’s Monday Morning Memo® – 7/03/2023

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

That’s the Preamble to the Constitution. We haven’t wholly embodied it, but we’re striving to do so. We don’t always agree, but our disagreements are public and candid. “Polarization” is a vague and deceptive concept, because it is caused by a fringe on either side of issues. There is a difference between one person or group being “right” and another being “wrong,” and that constitutes debate within a democracy. But the notion that one party is right and, therefore, the other is morally inferior and undeserving of consideration is invidious and reprehensible. 

We openly debate and vote on issues including immigration, abortion, climate, taxation, education, social justice, discrimination, and legality. In many other countries these are not public issues but rather governmental fiats and ukases. In yet other countries they are more easily dealt with because they are nation-states of one people and one hertiage, and not pluralistic nations such as the United States.

And so I write here looking at one of our great secular holidays tomorrow reminding us that even in our differences the Founders provided the freedoms to disagree and to resolve, to lessen conflict and reach consensus.

Whether we choose to do so today is up to us.

The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence knew they would be hanged if the British had won. They were flawed people, as are we all, but they were brave people, as well. My hope on this Fourth of July is that we can all be brave in reaching effective solutions for our joint future.


Who ever walked behind anyone to freedom? If we can’t go hand in hand, I don’t want to go. —Hazel Scott

Americans always try to do the right thing after they’ve tried everything else. —Winston Churchill

People in power are trying to convince us that the villain in our American story is each other. But that is not our story. That is not who we are. That’s not our America. Our United States of America is not about us versus them. It’s about we the people! —Camila Alves

Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like me, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. —Thomas Paine

Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy. —Margaret Thatcher

We pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. —All 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence

Speaking with Alan: One of my most popular experiential events, run twice a year. Learn how to create, refine, deliver, price, and market a speech of any length. A small group practices and video tapes the components over 2.5 days. Are you charging less than a minimum of $10,000 per speech? Are you agonizing over content, or not drawing a sufficient audience? You need this session NOW! https://alanweiss.com/growth-experiences/speaking-with-alan/

Master Master Class II: This sold-out event in March was so popular that I’m running another in October in Newport. I accept 16 people in person (you may also attend remotely on our large screen) and we have 4 seats remaining! I’m creating new material, exercises, and challenges. Past “grads” get a discount. One person said, “I’ve known you for nearly 20 years, and this is the best thing you’ve ever done!” (Maybe I just wasn’t that good before!)
