Rant: "It Is What It Is"

You are, by now I am sure, aware of my utter frustration with the currently popular attitude of “It Is What It Is.”   I have, among other things, even called it the attitude of the willing victim. Last night while reading, stumbled upon the following George Bernard Shaw quotes: “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man"
 "I … have had to preach, as much as anyone, the enormous power of the environment. We can change it; we must change it; there is absolutely no other sense in life than the task of changing it. What is the use of writing plays, what is the use of writing anything, if there is not a will which finally moulds chaos itself into a race of gods.” Regards
