< Clumsy Fumblings About Narrative

~tlf


Part of the lack of healthy narratives is because of the individualist and industrial attitudes in the West. Anything or anyone can be a component to be used and replaced.


It's permeated even our entertainment where superheroes celebrate the isolationist who goes it alone and comes out on top.


This can probably even be traced back to Descartes' "I think therefore I am" statement. Whereas in Africana philosophy you have the opposite,"I am who I am because of who we all are".


We need to put the humanity back into these ideas of ourselves first in my opinion. Then we can create fitting folklore.
