Because I think what we value is the sociable fabric, the social bonding, that sense of belonging and that feeling of respect and self-respect mostly that you could contribute. That’s the whole is positive. My wife’s staff went to a seminar conducted by a Stanford Professor, talking about love, talking about what really makes your personal life harmonious and productive with his family blah, blah, blah, friendships, and sociologists have also done a lot of study about this whole Facebook phenomenon.
Why has it become so popular? If you peel all the onion, you find it to be really, really based on a very basic principle and that is human beings just feel more at peace with themselves when they can maintain these bindings with their surroundings. So maybe it’s your immediate family, maybe it’s your friends in the outside ring. I’m inside a lot of these concentric rings of relationships. We can extrapolate that and say you got these operating with the environment in today’s Craig-centric doctrine of course you’d say that as well but by now it’s about this harmonious relationships that you maintain and those people tend to be happier, live longer, and more productive life. Now, we then have to ask, why then couldn’t that be the case in business? Isn’t it ironic that we know more about…we now have a closer relationship with our High School friends, some of them we didn’t even know every much in High School. With women we actually have very little in common though, right? This is now 34 years later.
Versus the people that we work with day-in and day-out that even our customers whose paying our bill, why are we not maintaining a harmonious relationship with these people? Why do we treat each other like enemies or competitors, or whatever? Why? Isn’t it if from a Sociological standpoint that the way to make one more productive is this harmonious relationship, this mutual, symbiotic trusting relationship is the key. How do we facilitate that in business the same way we can achieve in our lives, private lives, and personal lives. Now there could be a lot of explanations. The way a Capitalist world like we are how we organize. Capitalist management is actually imperialistic.
