Life on this planet is feeling increasingly complicated lately. Have you noticed? To a certain degree, modern society has always been this way. Rules, paperwork bureaucracy. Life should be simpler.
Thoreaus’s quote is not meant to suggest that we should have no order in society. However, when the mechanisms that hold it in place are bloated and corrupted, we must re-examine how we’re doing it. I am positive, humanity is capable of doing much better than this. Question is, will we?
