“People are people” it has been said.
Indeed they are. We cannot preclude a person’s whims and desires, actions or intents from past experience.
Each of us is individual in our process and direction, for the most part.
But people are products of their environment.
Molded and shaped by their peers and preoccupations.
All according to the rules and regulations set by their governing body.
That is, society.
No matter where you’re from, be it a multi-cultural, western society such as Australia, or an enclavistic, Sharia state such as ISIL.
Each and every occupant must conform to the ‘norms’ that have become accepted by its occupants.
To operate against or outside these norms will result in social pariahdom.
Unsolicited shunning and isolation from the group.
This phenomena of social inclusivism is a great cause of distress and destitution for myself.
We cannot be ourselves, unless that person is alike to others.
If someone disobeys the rules, or deviates from the common path, they are cut loose.
This deviation causes fear amongst the masses.
“If they can do this, why am i going along like the others?”
“What possibilities must lie outside my eye’s grasp if others are leaving the race i have always been a part of?”
Decent is the enemy of the state.
The enemy of any established order.
For the comfort of the self, remain entangled in these webs.
Stick to your strand, and struggle not.
For once these strands are broken, and the web escaped,
It is nearly impossible to remember how you got trapped in the first place.
