I recently had a very interesting conversation in the back of an Uber. I rode with a man who has for several decades volunteered to mentor underprivileged boys, and in the course of our conversation, he laid out for me one of the key lessons he tries to teach them about responsibility. I thought this was great food for thought, as he named responsibility to self, to family, and to society as key values worth instilling in the youth who will make up the next generation. I tend to agree. In this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only podcast, I relate this story and this Uber driver’s message, which I think is worthy. I hope you agree.
