the absurdities of Davos.
... Another thing about Davos was that it became painfully clear that most business people are unaware of their role in the system. .... What I found was that many powerful people desperately want to help solve these problems but they seem unaware of their role in perpetuating some of the ills. It was weird... I couldn't tell if such folks were clueless or delusional. [via apophenia]
As you rise up the chain, you forget. Same as most of us oldies (but very especially politicians) seem to forget what it is like to be a kid - that working all hours and being driven to success and attainment and all that stuff just isn't a driver for the majority.
