I was going to make this Jesusmas Week but I had a realization while responding to a post by my friend Crystal Andrus about blame and this quote came out of it.
Category Archives: responsibility
We saw this quote on the wall at Santa Fe Cattle Co. (it’s a restaurant)
when we were out getting laurel bushes for our back yard,
so I don’t know the author.
I loved the example of something that contributes to a catastrophe
in such a small way that it is impossible to blame that thing.
Nonetheless without that one thing, person, ceo, bureaucrat, etc.
and a million more like him/her the catastrophe would never have
So, what is the lesson when you really can’t place individual blame?
Is it to not let bankers gather in large groups at resort spas? Maybe
don’t let too many talking heads on TV at one time? Or maybe we
should do what people in the mountains do to prevent avalanches,
shoot a cannon in their general direction and disperse the danger!
