Society is a veil we’ve thrown over our own heads to escape the responsibility of being the caretakers of our planet.
sometimes we feel so separate, that lonely is all we can be, even when we are not alone
we are all mostly nothing, with a small percentage of something made up of trillions of individual parts that are all essential to giving meaning to nothing
A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.
We assume that because we have refined our laws over centuries of use, they cover every contingency we can conceive of. By our reckoning, our prison systems are supposed to discourage the crimes that can result in full prisons, but law does not prevent crime, it defines crime. Law does not discourage crime, but encourages criminals to be ever more creative so as not to get caught.
The current system of law does not address the problem of crime. It addresses the problem of public control, which in turn creates the oppressive environments that result in crime, and a false need for law.
When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President. Now I’m beginning to believe it.
…To die, to sleep;
To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub;
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil.
Learn from the mistakes of others. You won’t live long enough to make all of them yourself.
