Just me, but I think we’re all anarchists, in that we hate being told what to do, but we’re also all masochists, in that we wish somebody would make things easy for us, and tell us what to do.
Total freedom is still scary to us. Mostly, we’re descended from serfs.
Because we hate being told what to do, but also crave being told what to do, we’re always constructing reasons to be obedient where they don’t exist.
Do you want to put your heart and soul into making something? Do you care enough about it to take the hits and get better at what you do?
Then don’t obey your fear of taking a creative risk. That’s an order!
