Revolution

 

During the 1984 Super Bowl, Apple introduced the Macintosh personal computer.  It was a symbolic vision of a totalitarian form of government and gave the impressions of no personal liberties or freedoms.  Of course, the implication was our dependence on mainframe computers and the controller of those computers behind the closed doors.

Cultural norms take away our personal freedoms. Who we are gets lost through years of adjusting to fit the success model of our teachers.  We behave, we listen, we believe, and soon metamorphism occurs. Later in life, our success is so dependant on living a lie, fear keeps us in check.

When they say no you can't go to New York to become a dancer, when they say no you can't quit your job to start a computer company, when they laugh at your idea to start a non-profit in Africa, when they make fun of your dream to write a book, then the time has come for your personal revolution.

Express yourself and throw the hammer into the screen.
