Is it pragmatic to do what we are told when reason and experience tells us we will not succeed?
Is it expedient to divert ourselves from meaningful contribution?
Some achieve success by accomplishing little. They don’t create, they consume. They wring wealth from the sweat of another’s brow.
For the rest of us, playing along defies sense. We surrender our best selves to a creeping mediocrity which will eventually rob us of much more than we risk by acting from conscience now.
Why surrender to the group insanity of business as usual?
