Last night, I suddenly became extremely disgusted by mankind. I decided to expand upon my feelings. Here's what I've come up with so far.
"There are rules. In this world, there are many rules. Said, and widely believed, to be beneficial, these restrictions do just what their moniker suggests: they restrict. They have hindered the growth and development of generation after generation. They, in effect, destroy any chance of an intellectual renaissance. These rules demand nothing of mankind. Nothing but unquestioning obedience. And the punishment? The consequences for disregard of the unspoken guidelines? Ostracization from everyone one knows, everyone one will ever know. Variation is society's rival; deviation, the nemesis of the status quo..."
That's as far as I could go; it's quite exhausting to try and gather your thoughts sometimes.
