We glorify drama, conflict, and emergencies. And that’s what we get in media and that’s what sells.
But what we don’t watch or like seeing something being built, someone changing something for the better.
We’ll probably spend billions of dollars and millions of hours transfixed by media coverage of one disaster after another.
But what we don’t watch is an ordinary man building something or even helping in the true cause.
It’s easy to imagine that culture cannot be changed and we don’t have a choice in how things work.
But in fact, the culture keeps changing and if we pay attention to building rather than drama, the culture follows.
