why we are in the 21st century building a society that is so dysfunctional, so dog-eat-dog, that we have to be nearly perfect in order to get by. What we as a society need to do is to be able to embrace and value the contributions of members even if they don’t have a lot of grit and resilience. A society should be inclusive; you shouldn’t have to fight like a dog to enjoy it. –Stephen Downes
