Changing the World

The only way to change the world is to invent something that a lot of people like.

The item you invent can be anything from a paper clip to a philosophy, but it must fulfill this criterion.

In the past, it was possible to change the world by inheriting a crown and exercising its power.  But today, the only way to obtain political power is to invent a persona and/or platform that a lot of people like.

If you think that you can change the world without inventing something, then you will probably end up becoming a disposable tool for an ideology or organization that someone else invented.

Then to change the world, you must understand what people like, or perhaps even more importantly; how to persuade people to like something.
