What’s the difference between we and they?
Those who argue that they have no choice but to somehow salvage an unsustainable way of life are absolutely right. They really do lack any choice in the matter…until they’re able to see otherwise.
But we, being much smarter than they, seem capable of doing whatever we like, which includes making changes as the need arises…even if it means changing our way of thinking.
It’s very much like the Flat World mantra: Don’t go near the edge or you’ll fall off. And who does that apply to? Only those who believe it. All others (we smart ones, for example) are free to sail around an edge-less world.
Put another way, an empty closet can secretly ‘house’ any monster (or skeleton) you care to imagine…until you dare to open it.
But that still leaves the question: Who’s we, and who’s they?
That’s an easy one. They almost always agree there’s an answer (whatever it is). We, seldom do…agree, that is.
If you can figure out what any of that means, please let me know…
