The fact is, this is the very thing we should be doing. We have the opportunity here to transcend the mundane. To put every human mind to the task of achieving its own vision of self-actualization. True freedom. It should be the aim of every human being, not just to reach for it on its own, but to encourage every other human to strive to get there too.

We should be ostracizing those who attempt to prevent others from making their own journeys towards self-fulfillment. A just society would want everyone to have the opportunity to excel. We’re a long way from that vision, but it’s within view. We just need to remove some psychological and historical barriers. I’m not sure we’re capable of doing that just yet.
