Well Adjusted Debacle

The other day I saw a bumper sticker: it read (to paraphrase): what’s the point of being well-adjusted within a society that is mentally disturbed?

If you go along with the crowd, you cannot create original work, you cannot muster original thinking, you cannot evolve. To lead takes stamina, conviction, and purpose beyond the mundane.

Have you ever had an original thought, insight, or an epiphany? Original means something unencumbered by what preceded it; original is not a conclusion, but a revelation that takes off in a new direction.

Go on. Poke yourself into the demanding questions of your life; the alternative is unacceptable.
