A Culture of Riots : Malcolm Gladwell Thoughts

This week, I've been diggin these talks with Malcolm Gladwell.

His ideas, as well as the article he references, "Thresholds of Violence : How School Shootings Catch On" have inspired another possible chapter to a possible book I hope to write in the future.

But until that happens, enjoy the soft and soothing tone of good ol' Malcolm Gladwell.

"You're not insisting on it. You're asking us to consider it."

"Forty years ago he would be playing with his chemistry set in the basement and dreaming of being an astronaut because that was the available cultural narrative of that moment. That would be the cultural narrative appropriate for someone with his interests.”

Pretty provocative with much to consider, if nothing else.
