The Solution Trap
Is the question: "What are some solutions?" a trap or cop out?
When conversing on subjects deemed revolutionary, conscious, or woke, I've noticed we come
to an impasse when said question is laid on the table. At first glance, you think: "Wow.
This is a novel concept, speaking on solutions rather than problems. Maybe I should switch
my focus." BUT...Have you noticed how the conversation's pace slows and many of the
solutions people come up with get torn to shreds by skeptics. "We already did that." "That
doesn't work" "Where will we get the funds". Instead of using the phrase as a call to
action, it becomes a spade card in debates. A shut down device with a lot of answering
questions with questions combined with circular logic, and then we're back to square one.
I have a solution: TRY NEW IDEAS BEFORE RUNNING THEM THROUGH A MENTAL SIMULATOR TO FIGURE OUT HOW THEY WON'T WORK.
It's good for you!
