Interdependence


Various recent conversations had me worried that, (apparently) intelligent people still think of INTERDEPENDENCE as some radical, new, alternative to independence. Wrong!

Perhaps we have been so conditioned to strive for "independence", financial and political, it could go some way to explaining the economic predicament in which we find ourselves!?

Well, just to clear things up, here are the words of one ADAM SMITH:

“In civilized society [man] stands at all times in need of the co-operation of and assistance of great multitudes…man has almost constant occasion for the help of his brethren.”

Got it? He was an advocate of the free market too!

Just felt the need to get that off my mind on a Saturday morning…between episodes of Scooby Doo with my 4 year old daughter.

To further "rock the world" of any other Baby boomers out there:

the day started about the same time as my older kids occasionally get home

the particular episode was made in 1970…that’s nearly 40 years ago

I remembered it

the villain fancied he "would have gotten away with it if it hadn’t have been for the pesky kids"

…yeah right! Holly (the early riser) made the bad guy 5 minutes in!!!
