    Default The Authoritarian and the Creative

    We are very determined to maintain authoritarian control. We believe in the author, the author of books, the Author of the Universe, and the author of posts.

    We maintain authoritarian control by a catalogue of topics. But the catalogue is dead. Go into any library today and the catalogue front and centre has been removed and replaced by random access memory. RAM gives us a world of electronic tribes in the global village all sharing the same emotion at the same time across the world.

    The authoritarians police us with their dead catalogue of topics.

    The authoritarians say we need the catalogue of topics to avoid chaos, but the authoritarians can't tell the difference between chaos and creativity. And in saving us from chaos, they kill creativity.

    Authoritarianism is antithetical to creativity as a organic process, for which it seeks to control, it paralyzes the natural state of flow. Dictatorships stunt any sort of self-expression and hinders growth, progress, and knowledge rendering itself completely useless, out of control, out of homeostasis, and into endless toxic oblivion.
