It’s clear that there are way too many critics utterly lacking in the imagination to free themselves from chains of what appears to always have been & imagine a better future for all human beings — if only they could use imaginationd to see beyond the ends of their own noses.

If you think umair makes up stuff it’s because your education and your brain are limited by decisions in advance to reject new ideas challenging the canon of what you’ve been taught to accept as truth.

If serious change seems impossible it’s because your education seems not to have enabled you to develop vision and imagination.

And your youth leaves you lacking acquaintance with vast fields of literature offering different takes on human possibilities.

Unfortunately there are far too many who think as you do and that makes it seem it all has to be the only true way to see.

But if you have any acquaintance with the history of revolution in science, for example, you know there’s been one scientific revolution after another, with the space between each shrinking madly, so that we have conflicting scientific versions of “the world out there,” along with our our internal worlds existing simultaneously. And each has its own truth.
