On Changing the World

"Margaret Mead once said 'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.' Generations of zealots have tacked these words up on various walls, never noticing that the two systems that run the modern world - markets and democracies - are working right precisely when they defeat these attempted hijackings by small groups."
