Ain’t we Perfect Soldiers?

Over the last few days, I’ve been watching a lot of Jamie Oliver. My new hero, I think (which you’ll probably know if you follow me on Twitter). Anyway, his Food Revolution and his so-depressing-it’s-inspiring TEDtalk has really motivated me to think about the interconnectedness of it all.

Because it is interconnected. We can’t say Health has nothing to do with Education, or Creativity has nothing to do with Business. In our globalised world, can we really say that our life has nothing to do with the life of someone living across the globe from us?

Take this blog – I’m from New Zealand. Where are you from? Canada? UK? Sweden? Japan? Our lives are interconnected.

The point here is, we all have a part to play in the big issues. Jamie Oliver is a CHEF who’s making a huge impact on education, family lifestyle, and small business vs. big corporations. A chef, people! And what’s he doing, really? He’s just doing what he loves, and doing what he knows needs to be done.

Watch the video below. It’s fantastic from an arty point of view and blatant in its message: We do actually have a choice. We don’t need to be perfect soldiers for the big corporations, and the billions of dollars of advertising.

But maybe I’m just preaching to the choir.
