The problem with theory

Knowledge maybe power, but a clean slate is freedom.

The problem with theoretical expertise, is that it isn’t embodied. Therefore, it is fragile. It creates a reinforcing loop to protect itself from change or destruction. Just when we are about to start something new, it gives us one more excuse to not do it. To not leap and to not act.

That is why curious young people who refuse to accept the status-quo are transforming the world. In the past, these young people did not have access to the factors of production. Today, all they need is a laptop and internet connection.

A fresh perspective is an undervalued asset.
