GM, It’s Colin, your secret weapon to becoming a better human.
You’re awake when you realize that nothing exists outside of you without your permission.
There is nothing more powerful than a self-thinking sovereign individual.
Humanity has goodness built into our biology, because that was conducive to group survival. Love, appreciation, and belonging are byproducts of raising children and surviving in a harsh, unforgiving wild.
On the flip side, humanity also has the capacity for immense evil, which is correlated to our Us vs. Them tribalistic nature, which keeps us wary of outsiders. Today, our problem is our inability to work on shared values because we are too busy fighting over differences.
Today's danger is collectivism—trying to dictate morality and control the masses through elite-represented mob rule.
Instead, if we let the individual flourish without the need for propaganda, indoctrination, and the madness of crowds, we would produce the safest and most prosperous human world ever.
Resist collectivism. Resist tribalism. Resist propaganda. Resist indoctrination. Resist the "Greater Good."
