The ‘Little Man’ Problem


One of the most persistent problems of human society is what we might call the little man problem. Generation after generation and society after society have had to accommodate it in one way or another… either that or fail. The little man issue underlies more or less all societal models. And so it is deeply important to understand it and to deal with it sensibly.



This is a very practical issue in that it examines a problem that I’d rather just leave behind, but that is nonetheless of great practical importance. It’s something we need to think about and find a way to address.
