Safetyism - In a Culture of Comfort
How The More Comfortable A Society Is Lends To How Easy They Are To Control
How much are you willing to sacrifice for safety?
That is the basic premise of the social experiment that Governments around the world were running on their people over the pandemic.
The countries who fell in line fastest tended to be those who were to most reliant upon their government to provide them with safety in all things.
Franklin wasn’t wrong in this. For there are ever going to be people who are willing to receive your essential liberties, or freedoms, in trade for some temporary safety.
The real juxtaposition of it all is that safety, though necessary to a degree, isn’t the linchpin of a life worth living. In fact, it may be the single greatest cause for deathbed regrets.
We, as sovereign human beings, were meant for a life of adventure… not of safety.
But, until we each realize and claim our own personal autonomy upon your life and the choices you make in it, we will be subject and victim to those who tell us we have none. Or deserve none. Or are required to give ours up for everyone’s safety.
Break the cycle. Don’t allow these bad actors to hold power over your life, the joys and adventures it brings, and the opportunities awaiting us outside of our insulated ball of comfort and safety.
