A Conspiracy of Manipulation

It’s not easy to think for yourself when you’re constantly being manipulated. This visual thought was for a talk I gave to some young people.

A Community Interest Company therefore makes sense – an efficient business with a charity heart. However C.I.C.s aren’t necessarily trusted by funders or indeed attractive to investors – so possibly its a bit of no-mans-land? We’ll have to see…
