RSA Animate series

I feel the need to confess. It's been some considerable time since my last blog post, my Hail Mary's come in the form of these animated videos from the RSA. These are my favorite, there are more on YouTube should you be inspired to view them.

Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us

Illustrates the hidden truths behind what really motivates us at home and in the workplace.

Smile or Die
Acclaimed journalist, author and political activist Barbara Ehrenreich explores the darker side of positive thinking.

Crises of Capitalism
Radical social theorist David Harvey asks if it is time to look beyond capitalism towards a new social order that would allow us to live within a system that really could be responsible, just and humane?

Watching these videos may be a fun way to learn information, but you can only learn so much by reading or watching videos. Effective learning is doing, practicing, experimenting, etc.

I also wouldn't post a video from a Marxist. He's bashing Capitalism, but it's really crony Capitalism, not free markets.
