Today I want to invite you to meditate on two quotes:
“It is a misuse of our power to take responsibility for problems that belong to someone else.”
“It’s a cry out against help, against charity, against philanthropy – all forms of colonialism”
These are both from Peter Block, who wrote Flawless Consulting, Community: the structure of belonging, and many more. He’s a bit of a hero to me because of his deep thinking on what it means to intervene in #complex #systems… and he’s not a raving libertarian or an ungrounded realist.
Yet I find that these two quotes deeply challenge some of our most fundamental assumptions. What do they say to you?
