What’s Wrong With the World?

Something I have discovered in writing these posts is how easy it is to write a rant. Pointing out what is wrong with “x” is much easier than talking about how to do “x” right. Talking about the solution to a problem takes much more wisdom than revealing flaws. When I get tempted to focus too much on the negatives I see in the world, a story about G.K. Chesterton helps bring the world’s problems in perspective. The Times in Britain sent a request to several important writers of the time to write essays on the the subject, “What’s Wrong With the World?” Chesterton responded in a short letter with the answer,”I am.”
