Ed Brenegar on Ira Williams & Humility

A few days ago, I posted on the Ira Williams, ChangeThis manifesto, Speak Softly. Ed Brenegar has read Ira’s work and responded to it.

Humility is one aspect of a set of virtues that are the measure of a human life. We are a culture that is more than divided between Red state / Blue state. We are divided by a fundamental philosophy of human life. That philosophy is divided between the passive and the heroic.

The passive philosophy is a mindset that deflects blame and responsibility for problem solving onto others. It is a culture dependent upon other people doing what is in their best interest to do.

Read Ed’s entire post. And I’ll have more comments on the topic in a few days.
