The cultural mindset of individualism is a barrier to systems change. The focus on individual willpower as the reason for social problems and more of it as the solution, keeps people from seeing the power and potential of creating context-level change. The science of framing helps us identify strategies that can be used to pull systems thinking forward, creating a more balanced perspective on the cause of social problems and boosting support for systems change.
