We Have Bought Into A Model Of Life
To be accepted in this world, we tick the ‘right’ boxes to fit in. We learn to think inside the box, and consider ourselves decent people. If we do not buy into this belief system, we become an outsider.
Industry may say it wants innovators to ‘think outside the box’, but that’s only to sell more products; innovators don’t allow themselves to wonder if those products are actually needed.
Conscience may feel a conflict between right and wrong, but we hold on tightly to what we think we have, squeezing ourselves into a totally mundane world. As things don’t feel right, we lack confidence and might become hostile to any suggestions that there may be more to life. Basically we don’t know what to say because we have only learnt what we are told.
What a relief not to be a part of hostilities!
