    How to explain "systems theory" to people who have a localized view

    It seems as though many people I talk to do not understand a systems view compared to a localized view.

    How do I explain this to people?

    For instance, one of my friends is convinced that if people like me and her were in Congress - everything would work just fine. I try to explain why this doesn't work, but I don't seem to get through to people. People are still not understanding that it's not the politicians, its the system that produces them and perpetuates their behavior.

    My favorite, hope it helps...

    edit: its a political system.. Everything is a system and part of a subsystem at the same time. you and I are a system and part of other systems..If you express the word system after most anything, in applies, in my view.

    The planet is a system, reverse engineer...as above so below.

    It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.
