2020 Social Sector Innovation.

When, confronted with the starving child, we are told:
“For the price of a couple of cappuccinos, you can save her life!”. The true message is: “For the price of a couple of cappuccinos, you can continue in your ignorant and pleasurable life without feeling any guilt.”

-Slavoj Zizek (2010). Living in the End Times.

Why do we allow people to make huge profits doing any number of things that will hurt the poor, but we want to crucify anyone who wants to make money helping them?

-Dan Pollotta

Without risk there is no innovation.
