Creativity refers to the potential to produce novel ideas that are task-appropriate and high in quality. Creativity in a societal context is best understood in terms of a dialectical relation to intelligence and wisdom. In particular, intelligence forms the thesis of such a dialectic. Intelligence largely is used to advance existing societal agendas. Creativity forms the antithesis of the dialectic, questioning and often opposing societal agendas, as well as proposing new ones. Wisdom forms the synthesis of the dialectic, balancing the old with the new. Wise people recognize the need to balance intelligence with creativity to achieve both stability and change within a societal context.

Opinions of the populace:
When will you understand that the 'future' of this country is 'dependent upon you'!
Not expressing your ideas, belief's, and common sense reasoning diminishes the society to exist!
And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It’s our duty to look after ourselves and then to look after our neighbor. My meaning, clear at the time but subsequently distorted beyond recognition, was that society was not an abstraction, separate from the men and women who composed it, but a living structure of individuals, families, neighbors and voluntary associations.’
Shall "WE" not take charge of our destiny and lead it into the future for our children and grandchildren or should we diminish our hopes and dreams and let government rule over our lives when it is "US" that supports it's very existence?

Crayons, colors ... words, pictures,... books and memories.

Pretend you`re an artist ... and share a moment.

Volunteer to create a smile on one face everyday. Someone would honestly
feel blessed with that alone, especially if 'they' may be alone and anxious
in 'our' world(s) as it is today.

"WE" are often not the brightest bulbs in the room. Your partisan gibberish is proof.

In this article, I address the question of what role does creativity play in the evolution of cultures, and argue that intelligence, creativity, and wisdom are dialectically related. In essence, intelligence is a largely conservative force within a culture that serves to help individuals in adapting to already existing environments. Creativity is a largely radical force within a culture that serves to help individuals in shaping and redefining these environments. And wisdom is a balancing force that seeks an equilibrium between intelligence (adaptation) and creativity (shaping).

Here are my definitions:

.Intelligence is the ability to see how pieces fit.
.Creativity is inductive reasoning, which seeks to test new ways of fitting the pieces.
.Wisdom is the ability to not take either of the first two abilities very seriously.

I will.

"Creativity forms the antithesis of the dialectic, questioning and often opposing societal agendas, as well as proposing new ones."

Creativity is the foundation of dialectics.

Science dialectics is arguing to form a consensus.

Religious dialectics results in schisms, sects and holy wars.
