How to start a movement

How do social movements begin? What makes a real leader? In his talk for TEDDerek Sivers illustrates with a video that lasts less than 3 minutes how a social movement can be created.

The text is not too difficult and the video is a great help for listeners, so the talk can be used in both advanced and intermediate levels. With students within the right age range, the topic could lead to a very interesting debate in the sociopolitical context we’re living in at the moment.
