"We" the people!
In the discussion under the Money And Interest post, Pascal challenged Ronald because Ronald was saying "We" should do this and that about global problems. Pascal asked "who is 'we'?" and "are you really in a position to do something?"
Ronalds answers by singing the praises of each of us personally owning even big problems, and I want to back that up.
Sure, we all sometimes feel small in the face the problems of the world. But the world is changing all the time, and those who make the changes are those who say "we" and "I", not "they" and "you".
I personally feel that just the ownership alone will actually change things in the real world, even when we don't do anything. We are creating the world, and the more we own it the more we influence it.
