When I see paid speaking forums with titles like “Is growing inequality inevitable” I get really annoyed. I know I haven’t heard the lecture but even if it concludes it isn’t and mountains of fairy dust rain down in the forum the title really sucks. The word ‘inevitable’ seems to be the catch phrase of the decade. Lets just debate the inevitability of rising inequality along with debates on guns or lets do torture just to spice it up or why not the inevitability of terrorism?
It is just plain brainless and lacks any real effort. Everyone is digging a hole to stick their head in. Nothing is inevitable it just takes sharp thinking and effort to find better ways to do things.
It is more the word itself that annoys me. Sounds like a cop out.
