A word from the Think Inc Organisers
When we were kids, we were amazed by the world. We were fascinated by everything that we came in contact with; everything required closer inspection and scrutiny. Our parents would tell us about the hardships they had growing up; they’d tell us about the close-mindedness of forgotten eras that caused so much pain and suffering in the world; they’d tell us about the lack of technological innovation that made everyday life all the more difficult.
We didn’t worry about any of that, though, because this was the future, and we were a part of it.
As we grew older, we realised that we may not have been correct. Close-mindedness still permeated nearly all facets of society; critical thought seemed like something to be admonished rather than applauded; ignorance, intolerance and fear-of-change stifled social change.
We’ve come far. But imagine how far we could have come.
