I’m kind of a radical. I say “kind of” because I’m fairly sure that at 32 my days of living in treesits and getting teargassed at endless pointless protests that don’t change anything are pretty much over. But I learned a lot along the way and these days I tend to see those lessons or principles as the most valuable part of the ethos. The old lefty idea of a messianic revolution that will solve all our problems is pretty much completely discredited. The good news is that there hundreds of mini revolution happening around us all the time. And the more experience I get in the business world the more strongly I believe that horizontally organized peer groups are more efficient and productive then the standard top-down management structure that typifies governments and most businesses.
