Mike Rowe – Safe Space

“Everyone wants to go home safe at the end of the day.  Safety ‘always’ would be a delightful bromide, a wise platitude.  Safety ‘first’ is the stuff of idiocy.  It allows us to begin to believe that somebody other than us might care more about our well-being than we do, and the minute we buy into that nonsense we embrace the warm grip of complacency.  So, no, safety’s not the enemy.  But if you make it the priority, then let’s just wrap ourselves in bubble pack and drive at speeds approaching five miles an hour and never assume anything that could ever be confused with risk.”
