Alan Watts – Insecure societies and hermits

Insecure societies fear nonconformists.  Insecure societies desperately want everyone to stay the same.  They want everyone to be part of the system because those people who choose to be not part of the system reveal the ruse, the cosmic joke that it is all a game, it is all an illusion.  Truly confident societies revere the outsider and the hermit because they realize that such people are healthy for a society.  They keep the controllers of society in check because they are always there to show the people that there is an other way of living, that you do not have to be controlled by the system.

 

Words of wisdom form Alan Watts

America and the West desperately needs its outsiders more than ever before.  Who will serve as an example?  Who today is willing to withdraw there consent?  Who has the courage?
