I am celebrating achieving over 10,000 readers this month with a recap of the best and (ahem) least popular of the blog pieces posted on this site.
Well, actually, its 11, 371 today, and a hearty thank you.
The most popular article I have written was on Fighting Nepotism with 700 individual readers (and discounting those who merely looked at the first paragraph).
The piece that seemed to resonate with people was this:
The key to fighting nepotism, is the same as the key to most social change.
I have been wrestling with the question of nepotism and its relationship to survival quite a great deal lately.
Shifting away from nepotism will require that people trust organizations and government to look after their personal survival more than they trust their friends and family. The trick will be for organizations and government leaders to be worthy of that trust.
