Where’s the outrage?
MH-17, Middle East, Russia, Syria, North Korea or the RDC, guns in our schools, the largest prison population in the world is in the US, climate change… where is the outrage?
We are collectively asleep. We are content with our hot running water and smartphones. We’d rather enjoy what we have and close our eyes to what’s around us. That’s fine, I understand that. It’s wrong, but I do understand it. What bothers me more is the lack of outrage by those with genuine power. Where are the CEOs? Where are the statesmen? Where are the faith leaders? Where is academia?
Will someone please stand up and get angry! Will you demand action? Will you empower it and resource it?
That’s actually the subject of my book The Critical Century Manifesto. I’m not distributing it quite yet. I will soon. But for today I just wanted to ask the simplest question: where the heck is the outrage?
