Very interesting. In Normandy, during the yellow-vest episode, we tried with a few anarchists and traditional-left activists a new way of talking in public, we called this "pow wow"; people take the microphone and speak their mind one after another and when everyone has spoken his mind the microphone return to the organisation; in rare cases people had nothing to say and handed over the microphone to their neighbour. Surprisingly, shy people, especially women, who thought they had nothing to say, where found to have a lot of interesting sayings. And sadly this experience only lasted two or three meetings, as it infuriated the more 'traditional" "ego fueled" left activists, who tend to usally act in those meetings as leaders or preachers thus depriving people to speak their mind, and those egotics were disoriented to see that public interest may shift to the humble, instead of them. Only the anarchists did really endorsed this experience. Fun.
