Is Too Much Creativity and Innovation Bad For A Cohesive Sense of Nationalism?
The other day, I was talking to someone who I’d consider your basic conspiracy theorist, yes, he listens to that all-night radio show Coast-to-Coast Am and believes that the UN, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Rothschild’s, globalists, illuminati, and the Skull and Bones on-campus club is out to control the masses. I love to give him a hard time so, I told him, if you were in charge of the world, how do we know you wouldn’t do the same? Okay so, let’s talk, because I often pose new made-up conspiracy theories to him all the time, perhaps it’s just my creative mind.
Indeed, I told him that the reason the powers that be are pushing innovation and creativity is that they want to take over America by dividing it into ever increasing fractionalized groups. That they want to diffuse our strength and our ability to all get on the same page to do great things such as we did in the 60s when we went to the moon, or in the 40s when we won WWII, or after the cold war when we became the only remaining Super Power.
Interestingly enough, he had bought my conspiracy theory hook, line, and sinker, even though I explained to him that I just made it all up out of the clear blue, or today, thunder-clouded sky. Nevertheless, is it possible that too much disruptive technology, innovation, and creativity could actually divide our great nation, destroying industry, jobs, and our cohesive spirit and beliefs in freedom, liberty, and pursuit of happiness? If we as Americans don’t stay on the same page we will in fact divide ourselves and in doing so conquer ourselves as well.
However, what if we made ourselves so resilient to change, so favorable to innovation, and so adapted to creativity that we worshiped it rather than fought it? We wouldn’t be afraid to try something new, because if it didn’t work, we’d make it work, or simply go back to what worked before. This could actually make our country stronger, rather than weaker. It would make us more agile for anything which came our way – this is a needed trait for survivability – adaptability of a species always has been.
Still, there is something to this double-edged sword here, because it allows us to get sucked into unwise moves, change merely for change sake, hoping for the best, rather than using our un-polluted minds reasoning without the fog of political correctness. Hmm? You know, maybe there is a conspiracy theory in here somewhere worthy of contention? Please consider all this and think on it.
