Capitalism: still an ideal to be known...

One of my long term plan is to eventually move from the corporate world into the social services sector. However, the only difference being that this move will be from one service sector to the other. And will incorporate a movement of the skills that I will acquire and sharpen from the Management Consulting domain in which I am currently working.

This is the very reason by Social Entrepreneurship as a concept has fascinated me for so many years. Its a blend of business and social work, and can give sustainable solutions and not just idealistic talks.

Capitalism is the only system geared to the life of a rational being and the only moral politico-economic system in history - Ayn Rand
I have always been a big fan of Ayn Rand. Her writings have had a great impact on my thought process and have shaped my value system. Individualism as it exists in the modern society need to draw inspiration from such sources if its intended at created a positive and affirmative impact. It might again seem contradictory that one has to turn to individualism to become an change driver but as goes her famous quote on contradictions -
Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong. - Ayn Rand
Its easy to stay put on the face of external ambiguity but impossible to bear internal ambiguity. And the worst part is that the such internal conflicts can only be resolved by checking the base assumptions, which most of the people are plain incapable of doing and which is the cause of most of our miseries.

A life worth living will be one in no ideal is unknown or latent. The unknown ideal will be finally accepted and embraced not just a way but the way of life.

Striving for balance...

On a crazy tuesday at work the tought of having checks and balances in life strikes me. Living a fuller life and experiencing everything to the core is what one should strive towards not only at an individual level but collectively as well. And for us poor bachelors organisations should go ahead and implement... "Work-Eat balance"


PS: I am halucinating about food since morning, more so of Nalen gurer sandesh
