Systems thinking

Gave some examples of how what might solve a problem in the short term, a fix for a symptom, might not get to the underlying problem. For example, homeless shelters might perpetuate homelessness despite providing temporary relief.

See also Adam Day, States of Disorder, Ecosystems of Governance for similar discussion of this mistake of fixing symptoms rather than fixing systems.
