Empowerment, Wellbeing and Diversity

I, like many people have ideas and thoughts that pop into my head.

I have decided to write down (the ones that are publishable and legal), so I don’t forget them and they may be of assistance to you.

I have recently been wondering what are the ‘great lies’ of the 21st Century and I think three of them might be:

  • Empowerment
  • Wellbeing
  • Diversity

What I mean when I say they are the ‘great lies’, is that I believe they hide the darker side of the human condition, power, greed and entitlement.

I agree with the aim of all three; however, how abused are each of them by people to justify unjustifiable actions.

How much is it used to silence debate and critical review of the topic and its value to everyone involved?

How many businesses pay lip service to each of these?

How many people exploit each of these to fulfil their own agenda, while claiming it is for the greater good?

If people are unwilling even to question the validity actions in these areas because of social pressure, what is there to hide?

As if the purpose has complete integrity, then there should be no problem with a challenge or two.

I have written more on each of these three in:

  • Empowerment – permission to stay up on a school night
  • Diversity – knowledge, skills and attitude
  • Wellbeing – How much responsibility do you have for others?
