Our resignation

This morning I read a word that seems to fit a lot of what afflicts us in our modern age—resignation: we are resigned to not being able to do anything—we cannot fight city hall, the world is too big, and anyway it is too technical, for us to make any difference. So we won’t try.

That perhaps explains why changing the world seems so bold. And it raises the question, Why do we think we cannot change the world? Is it we do not want to—perhaps we are afraid of engaging other people, or more precisely, other people engaging us? Or, have we resigned our commission as change agents?
