crankyoldman: Lin Bei Fong is watching YOU [Legend of Korra] (lin bei fong (watching))

I do believe that one of the greatest problems we are facing in the human race these days is a lack of imagination.

And I don't mean the "oh look at my INDIVIDUALISM" hipsteristic type of imagination either. I mean being able to extrapolate and invent and create and all various other things. I don't blame people these days for being unable to be imaginative either; we live in a time of standardized tests and bullet point blog posts and reality television. We're being systematically trained to be Pavlovian and obedient and get rewarded when we parrot back information.

Keep in mind that I don't think we are all doomed. I do see the bright spots and I work with quite a few of them regularly. This is more me working through this in my head than anything.

Just remember that thinking outside the box is the default; people created the box in the first place. Try not to build too many boxes for yourselves, the world's gonna give you enough of them to fight with.
