Whatever Happend To Common Sense?

It seems to me that many leaders in our modern-day corporations, businesses, and government bureaucracies have lost touch with common sense and a reasoned ethical compass.

Here’s a great example. A lifeguard named Tomas Lopez was recently fired for saving a drowning man outside of his assigned zone. His supervisor said something about liability and putting the company at risk by temporarily leaving his post. Here’s the link:

I wonder what this same supervisor would have said had Tomos sat there and watched the man drown.

I wonder what he would have said if it had been his own son flailing away outside of the prescribed lifeguard zone? What do you think he’d say? What do you think God would say?
