Wisdom & Process

A Barry Schwartz´s 20 min. speech on wisdom as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy.

He ties in together ethics and wisdom, quoting Aristoteles who once upon a time defined practical wisdom as the combination between moral will and moral skill.

Schwartz brilliantly relates how today´s extended practice of just over ruling and giving incentives, when trying to solve several issues, keeps people away from thinking, away from the real development of their potential.

As the professor says, it might be very confortable, even often brings a kind of short term safety, but at the end of the day... also assures our long term mediocracy.

Check out this new Christian band that just released their first album.

From what I heard on the samples site, they sound really good.

Introducing the new Christian National Anthem: Guns & Jesus.
