Imagining an External Authority

In Uncategorized on April 10, 2015 at 9:22 am

Sadly, most people lack the self confidence to be their own authority.

The responsibility and burden of liability for damages created by our mistakes is just too uncomfortable.

To lessen this stress, most people look for an external authority to swear allegiance to and live their lives under.

Our collective imaginations create governments as we try to establish a safe environment for our egos.

When someone accepts an external authority, they immediately care less about the effects of their actions.

“I was just following the law” becomes a shield against liability for our mistakes.

Once agreed upon and established in society, this lever of power called government, allows a small group of people the ability to manipulate and control large groups of people.

For those with fear and greed in their heart, this power to control others is extremely attractive.
