“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.
