When we have to put things in order.
This is the fifteenth in a series of posts reflecting on the importance of our actions and what we do to contribute to something, and ideally, something greater. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
Lacking the rigor of ants, humans have often been victims of their carelessness. Instead of systematically ordering their affairs, the accumulation of disorder has sometimes caused social landslides. Let me explain.
Past civilizations, and thanks to Paul for reopening my eyes on this recently, seem to have been victims of great changes. The fact that these big changes are happening is beyond our control, but we must ask ourselves a crucial question: Would things have been worse or better if we had done otherwise? Civilizations have let themselves go, of course, but if a particular civilization hadn’t have made this choice, which is in fact choice at all 😆, would it have been able to cope with neighboring civilizations that worked in this previous way? Disorganized civilizations hit hard by a catastrophe become the new barbarians of others. Could this orderly civilization have made it out alive?
This raises the question of whether order can overcome chaos, whether having a disciplined life can hold its own against those without one. If taking charge of your life is no worse than not doing so in a System based on chaos.
