Solving real problems takes a lot more than committees, BS or continuing with the status quo. In fact the longer a society waits to solve a problem the surer the challenge will become a catastrophic crisis. Simply knowing the answer or thinking about it, is not enough.
Just thought alone cannot solve the problem for it is when thought meets action when problems are solved, setting up a system that takes into consideration highly probable future events is the genius that prevents any problems from happening in the future, however pure thought alone will not put a society on such a track or steady course to the Utopia we seek.
Many believe it takes the collective minds to solve the problems and that the age of the individual is now dead. Not so. The age of the Individual is not dead, as society needs them whether they admit it or not, because the masses without these individuals sinks into the abyss of political correctness, stifled into bureaucracy with laws set up for the biggest fool until only a fool would wish to live there. The pendulum will shift as history repeats, all hail the individual and thank you for his strength.
Often groups and teams move much too slow to accomplish the task and spend hours putting into minutes in committees what an individual entrepreneur can do in seconds. There is no glory in bureaucracy or incompetence. I challenge that notion, indeed I would go so far as to say that if evil does exist it is not in the details but rather he is stuck in committee.
So let's never let the Committees, Clones or Clowns create a crisis or catastrophe that cannot be corrected.
