Learn how to be effective in helping create a better world by using curious activism, which Robin Good defines as, "The compelling desire not to sit for any major worldview floating around you, but to learn and master how to become your own reality producer." *Introduction*. The sociocultural-political-economic world is a matrix of control. Just how ineffective is traditional activism and community organizing at affecting this matrix? What would be needed to create a "better world"? Imagination is freedom. *Inner work*. Awareness of the situation. Acceptance of the possibility for change. Creative activities connect us to our passion and power. *Engagement*. Shifting our attitudes and ways we behave. Learning about the matrix of control. Observing the matrix and our local communities. *Creating emancipation*. Disentangling from the matrix of control. Transforming our local communities. Choosing ways to intervene that stop harm to others.
