Amidst a country in disarray because of the cascading effects of a multigenerational lack of real leadership and a persistent unwillingness to take ourselves on comes a plethora of charlatans gaining their fifteen minutes of fame from selling snake oil to the greater-fools of humanity.
Human rights lawyer, professor, humanitarian, and author Bryan Stevenson presents his remedy at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Feast on his Tony Robbins-style suggestions of self-improvement that ignore human excellence does not come from the perfection of human solipsism, supplemented with my response below.
The problem with humanity is that we bathe in the solipsism of our self-aggrandizing perfection, decoupled, ignorant, and disassociated from the principles of nature that define and regenerate human excellence. Nature controls us, and for humanity to improve, we must abide by nature’s principles, which are much less brutal and more predictable than the mind-forged manacles of humanity.
Oh, and one more thing. The world does not need to change. Humanity must change. So we fit more neatly in a world governed by nature. Precisely this depravity of reason symbolizes the human solipsism I refer to so often.
