James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

The end of common sense?

I really do wonder if the world has gone mad?

How can we ever hope that people will be able to get along, in a global context, just look at the mess in the newspapers.

We have terrorists, pirates, riots, political chaos and much more that all can probably be traced back to the simple fact that we don not care enough about the small things.

And how do I get to that conclusion?

How can we expect people to understand and accept difference on a large scale if we can’t make it happen on a small scale such what we wear as cloths in public?

This conversation is again happening in the UAE.

Why is it happening?

People do not care is the short and simple answer.

If we can’t dress with a bit of respect in the mall how can we expect people to deal with larger issues of state and ideological difference?

Here is the conversation from Nightline what is your view?
