Why does change always have to be crisis-driven?
Is this simply another way of saying necessity is the mother of change? That necessity is driven primarily by crisis? Because we simply don’t feel a necessity unless it is actually hurting us? Is the average human society – the mob brain, the group denial, the short-sightedness of crowds – fundamentally incapable of responding to what it intellectually know is coming, and so doomed to respond only when it has become an immediate hurt?
Is it possible to change ahead of the curve? Individuals and groups have shown this to be possible of course. But will we ever achieve such foresight in a sufficiently influential extent?
