  2. The attempt to compel fairness with structure will ultimately result in a system corrupted from within. If the goal is a fairer society, there’s only one legitimate use for the nudge: to get people to consider the question before them in the light of what it will mean for them and for those they care about, and for the society they will inhabit – in other words, to give due thought and to place each important or less important decision in the context of fairness and even compassion, and to ask people to choose, daily and deliberately, a better culture.

    There’s a guy. He has cancer. He needs help. That happens, on social media. You do what you do. Some of them speak to something in you. Sadly, because life is what it is, some of them don’t.

    And some of them shout. Like this one. Because this guy has a buddy and that buddy said to me: 

    He’s a great friend & poet & facing it with determination & fire.

    And suddenly it’s personal. It matters. Maybe it matters partly because that’s who I hope I would be, in this situation this guy is in that clearly sucks beyond anything human beings should have to measure. Maybe because his buddy just shrunk the distance between us and now he’s inside my circle. I don’t know.

    With great determination and fire.

    Fuck, yes. That fire is called “life”.

    Sean Flaherty, ladies and gentlemen. Reblog this. Share it on Facebook and share it on Twitter. Donate if you can. If you can’t, pass it along so that someone else can make their own decision on that. Please. And carry that with you for when you need it.

    With great determination and fire.

    Fuck, yes.

  10. The BBC commentator mentioned that Costa Rica manager Jorge Luis Pinto has a motto: the braver the bull, the better the bullfight. And then he said: “and Costa Rica have been very brave.”

    That’s the thing: Pinto knows his team are outsiders, but he doesn’t think of them as the bull. He thinks they’re the matador.

    Somehow, in England, we think of our team as the bull. And deep down so do they.
