Yes, the world wants to stifle our creativity. And so many institutions are designed to keep us stupid, subdued, non-creative: the bureaucracy, the educative system… Of course, it is much easier to deal with non creative, dumb people.
We are swamped by things that want to keep us busy, away from the spark of creation. I am always amazed by the number of people spending their day playing on their phone (Angry Birds is of course among the biggest culprit these days).
The world is so nasty – the phone is even called a ‘smart’ phone. Yes it’s smart: it makes us dumb.
Let’s shake the straitjacket put on us by the surrounding institutions and find again our natural creativity. The one we had when we were a child. And when the world did not figure out that we’d better be dumb to be better controlled.
