i was thinking about games a lot last year.
the games people play.
how some games are win-lose. zero sum games.
other games are such that by working together the overall reward is greater than the total of the zero sum game.
and so on...

there is this picture in population health of a tall guy and a little guy trying to look over a fence.
equity is supposed to be giving the little guy a box to stand on so the guys are roughtly the same height and can look over the fence equally well.

it's a stupid metaphor. but whatever. it's there. in population health 1010.

there was this health conference in NZ last year. there are videos of some of the talks / presentations.

there were some really nice mini talks.

one of the ones i liked was from a girl who has a disability (not sure what) and she... I don't know... does some sport. swimming? not sure..


she was like...

maybe the best person on your team is on the sidelines because you won't even give her a change because you think she's disabled.

your star player could be sidelined because you insist she's disabled.

why are they looking over the fence for? who designed that stadium? why put a tall fence there? maybe you need more people's help when it comes to sensible stadium design.

why are they side-lined anyway? what game are they playing?

why do disabled people not get to pick the game?

there is this... ancient... thing about there being a finite...
something similar.

i think that sometimes leaders become invested in keeping their populations uneducated and unhealthy and unproductive and disabled... because they genuinely believe they are taking for themselves the lifeforce... vitality... wellness... of their people.

so any improvement in their people takes away from them.

people have invested in the oppression of others.

very very much in this part of the world.
