The world is not normal

Culture is the invisible human operating system working overtime to get us to be compliant and to fit in. To be a cog in a machine. We have been brainwashed to believe this.

As a result, we believe the world is normal and we are not. But really, it is the other way around.

Yet, from an evolutionary standpoint, if we didn’t fit into the tribe, we would be kicked out (and likely died and not make children). Today, we don’t have to worry so much about being thrown out of the community. If one doesn’t work, we can simply choose another.

This means we have a choice. We get to choose to stand up against injustice. We can choose to speak up against inequality. Because someone else out there is doing the same thing. And we are looking for each other.

The bravest thing we can do in our day in age may not be what we can do with a gun but what we choose to say and do on a day-to-day basis.
