There is a great scene in the Tom Cruise movie where he passionately tells Cuba Gooding Jr (I swear I am not talking about this clip because he has good in his name – that is just awesome good luck), to Help Me, Help You.
It is a funny and energetic scene from a good movie, whether or not you subsequently think Tom Cruise is a lunatic or not. He is as wired as we have ever been believing in the power of people working together to serve both of their interests. If both people are helping each other, who really cares which effort came first, and reminds us that we need to respond to the people that are trying to help us, since after all, They Are Trying To Help Us.
