Laurie – the Eyes have it

The Eyes Have It

Who do you influence?

A really good question Laurie.

I don’t know.

I attempt to behave in ways that will be a “good influence” on others (where I define good influence as increasing the probability of individual survival, increasing the opportunities for individual liberty, and increasing the probability of responsible action – where responsibility involves reasonable considerations of the impacts of our actions across time and space in our physical, biological and cultural contexts).

All I can do is my best guess in the moment.
How much influence it has is irrelevant in a sense; and I am extremely confident that the more people who adopt a similar approach, the better off we will all be.

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see
