When you set the table.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the second in a series of posts reflecting on the importance of our actions and what we do to contribute to something, and ideally, something greater. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
This series of posts will take several elements from the previous posts. Only a few of you may remember these writings, even I don’t think I remember everything I wrote. We’ll talk about this later. Nevertheless, we will touch on concepts of evolution, living in groups, and common contribution.
So let’s start with that. Do you remember that we’ve already talked about our social role? Our society is structured to allow everyone to specialize in order to focus on producing solutions to our requirements. This naturally creates an interdependence that, over time, has become a stable but morally questionable model.
For example, anyone who specializes in a specific practice and is able to make a living from it, that is, to fulfil their social role and in return, receive the essential elements for survival, will not need to invest effort in broadening their horizons. In other words, specialization increases our interdependence, but also our vulnerability to becoming a victim of that dependency. We have already talked about this laissez-faire attitude that leads us to choose the easiest and most accessible option with the least amount of effort. But how has this morally affected our model?
