The world needs creative solutions for many problems that plague our lives.
Yet, creative people struggle to achieve success. The world rejects ideas and people that it actually needs.
This is the paradox I see.
Is there a systemic , psychological bias towards mediocrity ?
It happens time and again. A certain kind of people ( who are neither creative nor bright) tend to grab and hold on to power and leverage them successfully. They take decisions that affect many people. Most of them perpetrate the status quo and the problems remain unsolved.
This is true in every country and setting- urban, rural ;young, old ;men , women.
Why is it so?
What is the solution for this ?
