No I Don’t Want That

The most radical thing you can do is eschew the things that society says you must want. Money. Status. Power. Beauty (if you’re a woman). It confuses people; frustrates them.

THEM: Don’t you want the Thing?
Me: No.
THEM: But everyone wants the Thing.
Me: The Thing is unimportant to me.
THEM: Sure, sure. But how about the Thing Even Bigger?
Me: No.
THEM: *squints* Come on.
Me: No really.

The second most radical thing you can do is embrace everything you’re capable of. If you think the first one freaks people out, you should see what happens with the second.
