I stumbled across this lovely little animated story from This American Life. While it closes with a wonderful moral lesson, it also does a great job of demonstrating how things spread. Because so much of what we do is the result of our environment and those around us, it’s easy to see why many things can feel like a great idea – or acceptable – at the time. Even the idea of making pretend little cameras and filming others can seem normal.
Being aware of how the environment and those around us impact what we do is a great first step when considering how to change behaviour for the better.
