Here's a little game I'd like my Unitarian Universalist readers to play, and clarifying questions and comparitive statements by non-UUs are welcome.
If the UUA went broke -- it nearly happened once, but imagine a senario where investments sour and loose value, planned gifts dematerialize, the Annual Program Fund collapses, bad property purchases return to haunt, and the North Sea's natural gas gives out:
- what gets saved?
- what gets cut away?
- who picks up the work in both?
- how would the programmatic business of the UUA be accomplished?
- how would the decision be made?
- how would the transition "be appealed" to the general Unitarian Universalist constituency?
I'll wait for comment before weighing in because I'd like this to be a values clarification exercise. This is a follow-up to the General Assembly voting post cast in a way everyone can play, and where the outcomes have deliverables and opportunity costs.
