Who is responsible or can be blamed for all our misfortunes, problems and ills?
A list can be made like this:
- The political party you hate
- Military rule
- Load shading
- … and the list goes on
But only if life could be so simple.
A snap judgment is easier to make and gives us something to stand upon. We are then able to form all sort of logic and argument to “prove” our point. Blaming a single entity also makes it easier for us to criticize.
Unfortunately this thinking stops us to move ahead until that particular ill is removed.
Our world is way too complex than we can appreciate. It is impossible to even analyze some complex problems. In a complex world it is sometimes easier to design a new way forward than keep trying to solve an existing problem.
So what are you doing? Stuck with the existing system or designing a new way forward?
