Editorial- There are monsters in life do we chose to see them in our leadership, businesses and relationships. To be honest the number of monsters we encounter is subjective and based on our sensitivity but yet, some are inexplicably real and not ghosts in the corner. I know of a father from a good friend who I considered a monster. He had money, opportunity and yet, he would punish his children by not providing them support. He hit one so hard they were bruised. He gave his new step child more than his biological children. Further, he was horrible to his ex-wife. This is a monster, he has since been downgraded to a mini monster or monster in training as I remembered walking amongst real monsters who killed 12 million Jews, Romani, Polish, Soviets and Gays in Dachua, Buchenwald, Auschwitz and thousand of other camps.

Real monsters inhabited these spaces. In Russia they have an art piece that shows all the camps and the connectivity to acts that we today, cannot relate. Monsters were in the interment camps holding the Chinese to work the U.S. railroads. In slavery where the destruction of families for generations still occur after the signing of the Emanicipation Proclimation in 1863. The displacement of the lands and families of the Native American.

These were monstrous acts but is it now important to ask what could be the next act perpetuated on the masses. Could there be a monsters lacking care for the environment, its citizens and resources creating an infrastructural wasteland that leads to monstrous acts that can only been understood in reflection?

In the beginning of all acts they are small or micro acts that are perpetuated overtime that eventually become atrocities as good people fail to do nothing. Edmund Burke stated, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

This nothing can be extrapolated and applied to the conservation, durability and optimization of our resources through sustainable applications that support our businesses to provide jobs and innovation. The work to produce resources that are accessible and affordable overtime to maintain education, civil liberties and social justice.”

Is there a monster in the madness not be sustainable. Who are the losers? The domino effect is the continuous winners of exponential proportions.

If we play angel’s advocate what is the overall loss in sustainability? There are some short term profit losses that are minimal, as well as new learning is required but, consider this not done in launching of new idea, territory, innovation and/or exploration. The opportunity to produce sustainability is the opportunity to grow a stronger society that delivers efficiency and opportunities for growth.
