We are not the enemy (if we try)

Seth Godin Blog

Fewer than 1% of our population works hard to divide us. To pit people against one another for their selfish aims. These are the pundits, divisive politicians, media companies and short-term trolls who have decided that schisms and fights are a good way to achieve their aims.

Or do you say it when you're engaged, winning, changing things and in the groove? Because the more you rehearse this feeling, the more it's going to happen. We get what we expect. And we expect what we get. The easiest way to change this cycle is to alter the scale we play in.
