    Action comes first, then blah blah about values, and changing the blah
    blah IS important - but talk of values is a shadow of the primary
    thing, the changed behavior.

People's behavior comes out of their values, and the values are
broader since they apply to many areas.  For instance, if you value
freedom, that will manifest itself in many different kinds of

Thus, the more important goal is to encourage people to value freedom,
not just one kind of behavior or another.

To refer to discussion as "blah blah" is rather dismissive.  Since
discussion is vitally important for communicating values, I think it
is counterproductive to refer to it that way.
