“An idea that is developed and put into action is more important than an idea that exists only as an idea.” - Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta
I have a few ideas, as expected, for what I want to write about, but most importantly, I want to have this outlet to frequently share ideas, thoughts and positions, that could just maybe change the world. Too many people have the foolish and naive optimism that they can change the world, but that is only because of perceptions of what it means to”change the world”. While I would like to say that I am not any less ambitious, I feel that changing the world is only possible through ideas.
“An idea that is not dangerous is unworthy of being called an idea at all.” - Oscar Wilde
There is some truth to the above, ideas are powerful, they can change the world – like we all say and believe. Ideas affect societal power dynamics and thus can face resistance, sometimes the resistance is good and sometimes it stems from dark intentions.
“Good ideas are common – what’s uncommon are people who’ll work hard enough to bring them about” – Ashleigh Brilliant
Truth is that part of what I am trying to accomplish is getting enough people to think a certain way, then we can work together towards figuring out how to act the right way.
