It’s Broken

This link has a remarkable TED talk from Seth Godin. It’s about the fallacies of design. Seth points out, some things are broken on purpose, and others things are broken because the designers have created a product they don’t care about.

A heroic solution, a solution you really care about,  alters the source rather than merely treating the symptoms. If we create things that heroically revolutionize our lives, we’ll create true works of art that develop legendary young people into legendary adults, making everything, legendary.  

Tyranny

Tyranny is a tactic used by bullies. Bullies learn to bully from other bullies. Tyranny is maintained through lies.

Prosperity, openness, and freedom never accompany the fearful into their reign of terror. 
Before you become a tyrant, remember, the dinosaurs are extinct. Likewise, tyrants have their time then their reign of terror epically ends when a real hero steps in to save the day.
