We are drowning in information,
while starving for wisdom.
The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers,
people able to put together the right information at the right time,
think critically about it,
and make important choices wisely.

It’s A Crazy World Out There When . . .   Leave a comment

It’s a crazy world out there . . .

When people slowly and clumsily put each of their items in the overhead compartment while pretending they don’t notice that you and sixty other people are waiting to get to your seats.

When an up-scale grocery store sale Velveeta cheese at $6.99 when the package displays a suggested retail price of $4.99. (Source: Personal observation.)

When a big, new innovative idea is proposed, armies of critics soon gather and try to tear it down. (Source: The Diversity of Life Edward O. Wilson)

When people create the false dichotomy of democracy vs. republic

When the incoming GOP House majority abolishes the select Committee on Climate Change.

When people think tax cuts for the rich will slow the economy.

When the “Deficit” Commission proposal represents a major transfer of wealth to wealthy Americans.

When a Congressman denies that unemployment benefits are an immediate benefit to the economy.

When people start eating while they’re still going through the buffet.
