Stories

Stories used to be told to extend important messages into future generations; capsules of information meant to transfer knowledge and wisdom that would otherwise be lost. But now, stories are motivated purely by profit having caused them to devolve into artforms devoted to serving our narcissism, entitlement and infantile selfish wishes and desires. What is weak is portrayed to be innately strong. What is unearned is immediately awarded. Forgiveness is weakness and revenge is a sign of strength. Our modern day tales take what was learned from past wisdom but only to channel permission for self aggrandizement and entitlement into future generations. It is time to start telling stories and stop selling them.
