Curators are Essential

Eric Weinstein – Right again

Things I Got Wildly Wrong: An Occasional Series. #1 Curators/Curation.

I Used to Think: Curators are intellectual parasites.

What I Think Now: Great curators are rare & essential. You haven’t been fully heard until someone ELSE sees meaning beyond what you saw while creating.

Emerson on Improvement of the Individual Rather Than Society

I thought of Jordan B. Peterson when I read this this morning,

“As our Religion, our Education, our Art look abroad, so does our spirit of society. All men plume themselves on the improvement of society, and no man improves… Society acquires new arts and loses old instincts.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I thought this was very close to Peterson’s saying of,

“If you can’t clean your room, don’t try to change the world.”
