Came across this post today on applying Complex Thinking to current events. These six tenets that Michèle espouses are a great framework for engaging with the bevy of complex debates in our modern society.
Patience, Effort, Courage, Retrospection, Tension and Thoughtfulness are all required across our debates in the public square–and especially in the private sphere. No matter your position on religion, politics, or even sport; all are required in greater measure.
As she writes:
I believe in Complex Thinking. And it is the antithesis of knee-jerk reacting. It requires the kind of emotional and intellectual self-control that feels insensitive under such heartrending circumstances.
