Another great post Jon, thanks.
We create ideas. Then we create institutions to support those ideas. And then we build rules to support those institutions.
And it doesn’t matter whether the idea’s great or whether it’s designed to oppress creativity and individuality, we follow it because we’re conditioned to do so.
Until we realize we don’t need to do this. That we’ve been following someone else’s map for so long that we stopped wondering whether it was leading us where we want to go.
And while it’s scary to throw that map out and start to draw our own. It’s also exhilarating. And liberating. And life-changing.
Thanks again for the post.
