Disturbing freedom

golden.jpg

 

What often bothers me in everyday life is the normative barrier. One speaks of freedom of speech, and yet it has its limitations: Not every subject enjoys the same acceptance. Why is fundamental virtue such as curiosity, the desire to learn and to ask, punished with rejection and contempt? In a broader sense, why society time and again trough the eras takes their current state of knowledge for granted truth?

Even in these modern days of ubiquitous computing and globally interconnected communication, people show little concern for expansing their scope of view. Sometimes, society seems, at least to me, to be along behind and not to be prepared what the next step, trough technology and newly known consciousness, is up to. In other words, technology and knowledge outpace (by far) societies progression. The years and decades to come are critical in terms of the path humankind will take, and I fear that the lack for curiosity, fundamentally the lack of reinvention and of rediscovery of oneself, is possibly going to lead us, as the sum of everyone’s absence of concern for novelty, to a renewed downfall of man.

Surely, my words seem somewhat sweeping and excessive, but in the end, it comes to down to our ability to throw our dated luggage overboard and to take new perspectives into account, to adapt and reinvent ourself, briefly curiosity.

The following entries are controversial, or at least provocative, elements of a non-exhaustive listing of disregarded ideas, concepts, or theories. It is in no way a representative mirror of my own thoughts, but it should illustrate my point about the lack of curiosity. Feel free to suggest further ideas in the comment section.
