Crowdsourcing Creativity?

I saw this phrase on a Wold Economic Forum agenda . It is a pretty interesting post and I encourage you to read it. The main point is to attack “corporatism”. You might ask, “what’s that?” Good question.

I am still not sure. But at least it includes the idea that large institutions should be protected rather than challenged. This is a pretty interesting dynamic. Surely we sometimes need to “protect” things. And sometimes we need to “challenge” things.

What is the balance?`I do agree with one point — the balance is NOT to avoid conflict. It is NOT to pursue an “all quiet on the western front” attitude. Conflict is an essential part of our human inheritance. I do not mean violent fighting. I mean the struggle by individuals to assert autonomy. That assertion and the resulting autonomy produce conflict. And that is ok.
