We’ve won

We are the dominant species roaming the planet. We are at the top of the food chain.

To get there, we built a narrative to be fearful of everything around us. We can’t shut it off. It’s what has kept us alive for thousands of years. It’s what gets us to duck when we someone yell fore.

But now, the narrative that runs deep in all of us is working against us. The challenge isn’t to figure out who is going to kill us today. No, it’s how do we stop ourselves from killing each other…

Poking holes and unraveling habits we have accumulated to get to the top isn’t going to happen overnight. Alas, it is difficult to change people’s minds.

There isn’t anyone left to conquer. What’s left is how are we going to take care of each other.
