On Pushing Boundaries II
It is my belief, based on historical review, that progress is primarily advanced by culture and technology, with government policy lagging behind. And how does culture and technology advance progress? By individuals pushing against the moral and political boundaries that have been erected before them. Progress doesn’t happens through political action before it’s happened in hearts and minds. And once something has taken ahold of hearts and minds, it’s inevitable that government policy gets changed. A more effective vote for progress than at the ballot box, is for each individual to identify the undesirable boundaries erected before them, and take direct action pushing against them. Courage may be required. And that’s today’s two cents.
