A Thrivable World in Which Heretics are THE Asset

"These days, the greatest asset that heretics have is that there are so many of them. They exist in every organization, balancing the imperative to do good works with imperative to keep their jobs and keek earning a living. Their greatest dream is to bring their work lives in tune with their personal hopes and dreams. Perhaps a corporation exists, in the end, precisely for its heretics.Perhaps in the long run is to help people expand their souls and capabilities by providing venues within which people can try things on a large scale--to succeed and fail and thereby change the world."
