For no light matter is at stake; the question concerns the very manner in which human lfe is to be lived.

The Cult of the Professional
and the lock-down of creative thinking
Co-creating meaning since 2001

'Professionalism' as a cult
Shaw said unreasonable people change the world, the reasonable keep it as it is. I'll go further and say that it is amateurs who change the world - that is, people who do things for the love of it - professionals are paid to keep things as they are.
Modern life has become too reasonable and too professional - humanity's best hopes rest with the passion and imagination of unreasonable amateurs.
