One man’s vice is another’s addiction

 

“Virtues aren’t the only things that are habit-forming: the more someone behaves in a way that is damaging to self or to others, the more “natural” it will both seem and actually be.” ― N.T. Wright.

The “tipping point” according to Malcolm Gladwell  is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Just as a single sick person can start an epidemic of the flu, so too can a small but precisely targeted push cause a fashion trend, the popularity of a new product, or a drop in the crime rate. It might be the same delicate balancing point at which one person’s petty vices transform and become major addictions.

Quote of the week: “What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T. Gendlin, Focusing
