"No future triumph or metamorphosis can justify the pitiful blighting of a human being against his will." Peter Zapffe
should the term then be “grown downs” :D
Well, I think that any free human being has the potential to develop into a sane adult.
Unfortunately, we live in insane societies.
Having been around the block a few times, it’s my firm belief that children are way smarter than adults ever will be. I hate to go on yet another rant, but adults are just irresponsible and bothersome creatures that lie, bully, and enable. They form prejudices that children never had and they spend a good chuck of their lives trying maintain some make believe system so they feel right.
Adults enable because they’re afraid of change. Let’s say that there is this one guy who is different from all the rest; outside he’s different, but inside he’s the same. People recoil from him because he refuses to give into the make believe norms that have been set. It’s often said that if you tell a lie long enough, it eventually replaces the truth, so how is any of that right when he knows the real truth?
Gimme the facts over opinions any day of the week. Adults are afraid of the facts because they feel it threatens their worldview. Instead of looking for new ways to enrich their lives, they choose to stay cozy with their same old routines, and they stomp out all those that threaten that mediocre routine. Only a bully cites the status quo when they oppose the happiness of different people just for being different. Only a bully feels that his way is the only way when there are millions of other possibilities out there.
The worst part is when children point this out, they get cast aside and get punished. Some if not most even call them the bullies for just telling the truth. That’s why some of them lie, because they fear that punishment. They lie because they fear that they may lose their individuality. Can you really blame them, though?
That is all why I view maturity as nothing but a burden.
Maturity means conformity, to save face.
I hate it.
