Society with all the stratus and casts is going backwards at a rate of knots. Please allow me a bit of slack, I am 69 (non-out) so this is the old Gezer’s view. Today people who have barely lived 30-40-50 years, are THE Decision Makers of today, in the corporate world, politics, sports and about any HHRR managerial position of considerable influence?
Quite often the people ‘formulating’ or generating opinions, influencing the thinking and the feeling of audiences (we are talking about millions of newspapers readers, or TV viewers? C’mon, fair dinkum mate! – What is it with this world of ostriches burying their heads in front of the TV set, the iPhone screen, or the old fashion tabloid? – We all are voluntarily dumbing ourselves down, also our families and friends, by the mere fact of not opposing ‘the Wave’ (?) ‘the trends’ of society (?) – YEP, SHE’LL BE RIGHT MATE!
RUGBY LEGENDS? MAYBE – (On the field, not off it) YET THEY ARE NO EXPERTS, IN NEITHER ‘THE LAWS’ NOR THE SCIENCES (CONCUSSION, DEMENTIA DEPRESSION, SUICIDE, ALZHEIMER’S PARKINSON’S) TBI and CTE certainly degenerate into those diagnoses and sentences.
TV AND SOCIAL MEDIA (“THE INFLUENCERS”) IS FULL OF FOOLS WHO ARE LIVING IN THE PALAEOLITHIC ERAS! IT IS ABOUT TIME SCIENCES, EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE AND EMPIRIC RESULTS COMBINE TO HELP PROFESSIONAL SPORTS, AND… TO BE ALLOWED TO DO SO, NOT OBSTRUCTED – TODAY’S SPORTS ARE RUN LIKE WHITE ELEPHANTS DESTINED TO DIE, AND ADMINISTRATORS ARE JUST DELAYING THE DATE! – OF COURSE, SPORTS ADMINISTRATORS, LIKE POLITICIANS? THEY ONLY CARE FOR THE FOUR-YEAR TENURE… on the other hand, families and friends are here for the rest of the affected athlete’s lives! And Law Firms are happy to make a ‘motza’ defending one side of the counter, or the other! … psssss an obscene greedy circus!
