Of problem solving, meddling, helping and hubris

I have nothing against working to solve new problems—like a flood or getting people out of a burning building. It is working on old problems which we have tried to solve and resolved to keep trying the same thing. How’s that working for us? We may have mis-identified the problem. Or maybe it is not a problem and our solution is. Maybe the people are not broken and we are meddling. Meddling and helping are two subtle ways hubris shows up.
