An animated look at the “Powerlessness of Positive Thinking”
I love sociology, psychology, philosophy, theology and pretty much anything else with “ology” at the end of it. Lately I’ve been fascinated with these RSA Animation videos. Being a left brain, right brain kinda guy I’m blown away by both the lectures and the illustrations.
In this particular video the illustrator creates a visual landscape for a lecture on the damage the so-called “Power of Positive Thinking” movement has created. I don’t endorse everything stated by the lecturer but it certainly is food for thought. There is a particularly good summary on the “keep it quiet” mentality that led to the sub-prime mortgage crash of 2007.
Give it a watch. I’m sure you’ll be impressed as well.
