There are so many classic songs that grab you because of the lyrics, but can be vastly improved by modifying the lyrics. Songs, like all art, involves a beholder's stake. The intrinsic ambiguity of art allows us to mold its meaning to ourselves.
The Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel has always grabbed my attention. Paul Simon wrote this song when he was 21, but I doubt he could have predicted the emergent interpretations that listeners found in his song.
The Disturbed version of the song has an appealing interpretation (same lyrics). That captures that feeling of helplessness in a world of apathy.

When Francis #Fukuyama, in his 1992 book, disclosed the "end of history" #thesis, he became a world celebrity.

The formulation was simple, but devastating for the left: faced with the evidence of the disappearance of the #SovietUnion, he could affirm that #communism had failed..
and that #capitalism emerged victorious as the only system that guaranteed #peace, #freedom & #equality.

However, in 2010 Fukuyama acknowledged that he had not understood the meaning of the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the #European socialist bloc.
Fukuyama had believed in the drunkard #Yeltsin (the face of the gravedigger & #thief who prevailed with blood & fire, supported by the #West, with the coup d'etat in #Moscow in 1993) and in the capacity of liberalism to satisfy human needs and, In addition, in 1992, ...

On Challenging Ideas

1/5

Many are unwilling to challenge established ideas for fear they lack the knowledge necessary to advance opposition.

But truth accommodates the dissident far more than those hoping to maintain the commonly accepted.
2/5

2 important points to understand:

1) The power of refutation lies in epistemic asymmetry; it requires far less information to refute a theory than to support it.

2) All attempts to assess a model’s validity must remain agnostic to the tools used to build and promote it.
3/5

This means theory exists in a constant state of susceptibility to counter evidence, and that countering does not require familiarity with the language used to defend a model.

SFI President David Krakauer introduces our annual board of trustees symposium on New #Complexity #Economics - follow this thread for live coverage of talks by @EricBeinhocker @AKStanger @ole_b_peters @JacksonmMatt @cmoncap & W. Brian Arthur today...
"I think we have to be aware that we're not just discussing financial systems. We are discussing the future of the stability of the planet."

- David Krakauer
on #Complexity #Economics
"What is the #economy? I would argue that it doesn't exist in the physical world. It is a product of our #imagination. It is made out of #ideas. It does have an effect on the physical world. But the imagined order that we have is not succeeding."

YOU WILL HAVE MORE THAN ONE IDEA | I spoke to a young man recently about a business deal. He was more concerned about the money he would make than the opportunities he would gain. #Thread #Ideas #Entrepreneurship #Career
Sometimes when I talk to entrepreneurs, they seem obsessed with people stealing their ideas. They assume they will have only one good idea in life. They think a single deal will be their only source of prosperity.
Employees do the same. They hold on to jobs desperately. Some embezzle funds because they are not confident of another chance to "hammer".

@petedako @Citytv @CBCToronto @CTVToronto @TheAgenda @PnPCBC @TheCurrentCBC Thanks Peter!

It’s interesting, this time 4 years ago several debates had already taken place. I also learned that many of the debates were specifically held for specific Candidates- a way to use the airwaves to promote if you will.

My platform includes electoral reform.

@petedako @Citytv @CBCToronto @CTVToronto @TheAgenda @PnPCBC @TheCurrentCBC It’s possible to ensure an inclusive, accessible, democratic Election.

I believe the demonstration of #inclusion #accessibility #democracy in our Election is part of ensuring #CommunityWellness

Vote D!ONNE Renée on Election Day for Mayor of TORONTO!

#AGreatLesson

I once asked a very successful woman to share her secret of success with me.

She smiled and said-“I started succeeding when I started leaving small fights for small fighters-
✅I stopped fighting those who gossiped about me
✅I stopped fighting with my in laws
✅I stopped fighting for attention
✅I stopped fighting to meet public expectation of me
✅I stopped fighting for my rights with stupid people
✅I left such fights for those who have nothing else to fight
And I started fighting for
✅My #vision
✅My #dreams
✅My #ideas &
✅My #destiny.

The day I gave up on small fights is the day I started becoming successful."

Some fights are not worth your time.
Choose what you fight for wisely and success will surely follow
