The Thinking Viking just saw some chickens. At the side of the road. So, of course, I thought about why they did not appear to have any interest in crossing the road. Apparently we are supposed to believe that, in the presence of a road, any normal chicken will cross it. Because it’s a road, that’s why.
Not the case. I think we need to ask a different question.
I think it’s a question of motivation. We should ask “Why did the chicken WANT to cross the road?”
These chickens clearly had poor management, some would say. I disagree. I think they were perfectly happy right where they were. Happy with what they had.
More people should be that way. Happy with what they have.
Think about it.
