When entire systems such as finances, health care or higher education, break down, corrupt and confound intelligent people, it’s time to power up the brain and reboot ethical practices to simplify. How so?
Let’s fact it – taxes today tax your brain! Beyond the clutter of financial policies, written to confuse honest tax payers, lies opportunity for a simply stated and ethical economy. Who will lead the charge to remove tax related clutter in ways that transform financial practices from fear tactics?
Behind convoluted bureaucracies, that cling to bloated barriers, awaits supreme innovation for brilliant systems – in simply stated tenets. Those who call for systemic excellence, will want to support smart skills that cut through bureaucratic debris with unpretentious style. Who do you support?
Past broken secondary schools that gasp for breath amidst rows and increasingly complex money demands, stand highly intelligent teens. Learners come to class daily armed with multiple intelligences, and mental wealth to solve complex problems. Who will simplify neuron pathways to capitalize on their real riches?
Ahead of universities in crisis, where tenured faculty fight for crooked benefits and complex myths shape tired traditions more than human brainpower, curious leaders-in-training await straightforward solutions. Who will lead a higher education built on human brainpower without confusion or disadvantages across entire communities?
Some experts say that complexity, confusion and cynicism will drive any system into corruption, and we hear daily of the scams that result. Greed follows from that few in that field who learn deceptive ways through its mazes for personal gain. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow added that, “In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.”
I propose that pretentious prose may remove accountability checks that otherwise come form honest people, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Amazing brainpower flows beyond current seas of complex cynicism. Let’s toss simplicity back into the ring – the kind that mixes intelligence with ethics and splashes hope. You?
