Reflecting on some story elements in Morningstar. Got me thinking about that line from Suicidal Tendencies song Institutionalized
“I’m crazy? When I went to your schools. When I went to your churches. When I went to your institutional learning facilities. Then how can you say I’m crazy?!”
We teach children that life is competative and the world is a hard place. We train them to be tough so they will survive, then we are surprised when humanity commits atrocities against one another.
It’s true, we live in a tough world, but maybe the answer is to transform the world. To create a less brutal place. A more collaborative place. An ecosystem in the truest sense of the word.
Some would say that’s impossible, but isn’t accomplishing the impossible, one of humanity’s specialties?
Failures are just iterations of Success
