An Analysis of Systemic Cultural Change

An Analysis of Systemic Cultural Change

There are people that see the corruption of the current system and love it because they benefit from it. It’s naive to think that these people will allow change to happen from the inside.

Then, there are people that don’t see the corruption of the current system because they are blind. The blind lead the blind, and they are all headed towards the ditch.

Then again, there are people that see the corruption of the current system, but are immature and overzealous and do more harm than good trying to correct it. These jump from one ditch directly to the ditch on the other side of the road. They get nowhere.

Then, there are people that see the corruption of the current system, and are mature and know what to do, but refuse to do it because of fear or apathy. They also are the aforementioned naïve, thinking that things will just change from the inside.

Then, there are a few who see the corruption of the current system, are mature enough to know what to do, knowledgeable enough to know what corrections need to be made, and are not afraid to start small and get it done with boldness, faithfulness, and patience. These people create change. They also inspire systemic change that appears to be coming “from within” but is really a response to being provoked from without as a response to either competition or new leadership.
