Forum Post: Why use the term "Demands"?

I've noticed that there is a tendency to use the term "demands" to state desires.

I think we should think carefully about that. Saying we "demand" something makes it look like we believe we have the power or right to impose our will on others whether they consent or not. That is not good and in reality is also not accurate.

We need to expand and to persuade others of the justice of our cause. Instead of "demands", how about "goals"?

Nope. Demands are firm and absolute. This needs to made clear. However.. I think I understand your wariness.. So far the demands released have been moronic and without any understanding of politics & economics. There need to be fewer, more coherent demands.
