We humans tend to think we are really smart as a species. I don’t remember who, but someone surely said —
this is because we don’t have any other point-of-view.
However, our haughtiness makes us utter things such as:
As if ordained by some perfect being!
It is in situations such as these, that we take ourselves too seriously, forgetting that we are smart only because we think so.
The point I am trying to get across is that:
No matter how smart we think we are, we all are indeed fools.
Our reverence towards our own fellow human-beings proves this.
Time and time again, we have been deceived, troubled and subjugated by the very person or the system we hold great reverence towards. Be it the emperors, the religious gurus, democratic leaders, the corporate visionaries, whoever. We have all been constantly well-deceived by those we revere.
Yet, we don’t learn!
Here we are today creating, gossiping, promoting and worshipping modern Caesars and Hitlers (dressed as merchants) only to create more tomorrow.
We never learn, do we?
