The comedy troupe Monty Python once performed a sketch called The Four Yorkshiremen. Four old rich gents sit on a fancy veranda, puffing cigars. One after another they start telling stories about how difficult their upbringings were, each story more ludicrous than the last. Finally, the fourth Yorkie finishes his story with the crowning phrase “And you try and tell the young people of today that, they won’t believe you!”
What is the greatest force on earth today? I would say it is culture. Culture has the greatest impact. When you read in the papers about lists of the most influential people in the world, they’re talking about people who carry the authority to influence and shape culture. When ideas meet with humanity, they create culture.
