The golden rule – adapted

  Yesterday, in the c if their respective college/university only provided online learning (due to the COVID pandemic). Institutions, like Harvard and MIT, were prepared to fight the policy in court, stating: “The effect — and perhaps even the goal [of the policy] — is to create as much chaos for universities and international students as possible.” (From the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court) Beyond the chaos, several blogs and articles on the topic shared […]

How do we break away from the fear, […]

To Censor or Expose?

It’s psychologically uncomfortable to be on the wrong side of the truth. When we are, we want to saddle, control and dominate the truth. Censor and suppress it. Lie and manipulate the truth to make it seem like a falsity, and the falsehood seem like the truth. We can’t handle the truth. Yet, it’s exhausting to maintain falsehoods and lies (Just like sucking in your tummy after Thanksgiving dinner.) Unethical, as well. Which made me […]

Mandating righteousness (and other myths/lessons)

Let me start with the following statement: Leaders don’t need to be perfect, but they need to show up. By now, a significant number of Fortune 500 leaders have provided some sort statement of about the killing of an unarmed black man George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police. This incident sparked nationwide protests to dismantle systemic racism in this country. This, in turn, sparked looting and destruction of property, which sparked a militarized response, […]
