Fuller As A Trim Tab

by

Quoting Fuller: “Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary – the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there is a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab. It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab. So I said call me a Trim Tab.”

Though he did not have the powers of nations or governments, what he could do he realized, was think for himself and act on his own. He was, he decided a trim tab.
