What’s Going on Here?

I’m really here to talk about four things, maybe five. If you were ever curious about how modern society works and why it works that way, you will want to pay attention. This post is just a short and sweet overview of what I’m going to opine about.

1. Ideas – what re the social and personal consequences of the ideas, beliefs, attitudes, and media messages we live by, or at least encounter daily.

2. Social pollution – The world is full of ideas, beliefs, attitudes, traditions, and mdeia messages that are illogical, irrational, or that undermine widely held values.

3. Sociological traps – errors in our thinking about how society works and about why people do what they do. The full list of traps includes economics, individualism, science, nature, religion/spirituality, social organization, and biology

4. Creative change – combining knowledge of the social sciences with techniques for brainstorming and problem solving to help imporve our ability to develop, implement, and sell beneficial social changes.
