Sharing the models of movement building post on the new EA Groups Resource Center.
I think that this is a very important post, so important that I think it should be included in the Introduction to EA Handbook. I think it's very important for people to know why you're doing what you're doing. If people think certain decisions are random or arbitrary, then they're going to feel less engaged/motivated by EA.
Back when FTX had just broken, there was a lot of criticism of EA. There were valid points and invalid points, but mostly a lot of it was hard to evaluate because the criticisms didn't really engage with EA movement-building theories of change.
