I propose that we need to relearn what it means to be human.
Too often societies grab onto an idea and go with it, before it has been examined by time’s slow but careful eye. These ideas become trends, then norms. Then nothing short of social upheaval can seriously challenge the norm.
And some norms got in without paying their ticket fee, and deserve a good kickin’ out. And the bridge between this day and that day is built one conscious objector at a time.
I hereby refuse to blindly follow social norms. Join the minority, put some of your own bricks into the bridge toward a better future,
Question some norms, and find out that you truly benefit from them. Thoughtfulness will benefit you. Question other norms, and find out that rejecting them is the only way forward. Standing out will benefit you.
A wise person once said, “The human body is centuries in advance of the physiologist.”
Join with me, and relearn what it means to be human.
