There’s a video on the “Wealth Inequality in America” making the rounds on YouTube. It’s actually gone viral with more than 2.9 million views.
As is often the case, people will have differing opinions on the content. I’m not going to debate the content on this specific video – and yes, I tend to agree with the premise – but to what this video clearly shows.
No matter the issue, we all bring our own filters and biases to the table. And, as it is demonstrated in this video – they is always a major discrepancy between what we think vs. what’s ideal vs. reality.
Our personal story informs our beliefs and our perspective.
For me, the challenge is simple, I must remember to infuse my perspective and opinions/conclusions on any issue with reality. There in lies the opportunity – to beyond our personal story and immerse ourselves in our collective story.
Here’s the video … well worth the six minutes you’ll spend watching it.
Be well and make it a great day!
