It has always been true that trying to save people from their own demise has a high chance of turning in to a waste of time. Cameramen in documentaries will wait in the bushes as animals tear each other apart - just to get the perfect PG-13 shot - it is nature. We exist to learn and learning requires experience. You can't grow unless you change but if you change too much you end up in chaos. But then why do anything at all? How is your mental health?
The sun is a bonfire burning a billion miles away and we are sitting at the edge just far enough so that the world does not catch on fire. It often seems too perfect and seeming more and more perfect everyday. Meanwhile everyone is bored with this fact and so we make up stuff to get upset about. Internal wars and paranoia seems to be the order of the day. Fear is our new disease and it seems to have us by the peanuts.
I have always wanted to be fellow on a university campus. I do not want to be constrained by the future or the present trends. I want to see and move about without rigid constraints that are used to keep everything in a box. I want to solve problems. Not simply pick low hanging fruit until I get to clock out at the end of the day. People often place and confine each other in boxes in order bath in ignorance. If you are going to do something do it well or at least get a valiant effort. I want to learn from your ignorance and solve it - even if its only a little bit. I want to make things better.
