Thinking about Change

Improving the world: I’ve noticed an interesting challenge. Someone sees an issue… something wrong in the world. Say, rapacious capitalism. They propose a solution, or a framework to a solution. Now it may be well-thought-out. Or it may be foolish. But the response always seems to be, “You proposal seems similar to X, and X didn’t work in the past.” Now if you get that in response to every proposal for change, it means one of three things. One is that most people prefer the devil they know to the one they don’t. Second, logically we couldn’t be anywhere else but where we are, since everything else is apparently worse. And third, people lack imagination.
