We do stupid things, but we are not stupid. We are afraid.
People are irrational. In our minds, we know what is right, but we don’t do the right things. We think that’s not our business. Somebody else should be in charge. We are only following the crowds. We are afraid of making decisions. We are afraid of taking responsibility.
We also do wrong. We race, drive aggressively, yell behind wheels, get in fights. We are afraid people don’t know how many we are. We buy lots of big shiny things that we don’t need. We are afraid people don’t know how valuable we are. We try to be heroes, by doing the wrong things.
We think, talk, and procrastinate. We know what we should do. We are not stupid. We are afraid.
