Society (1)

Society —

A school of fish — never blinking, mouths opening and closing all the while, swimming about in tightly-knit groups, trying to not get eaten by bigger fish.

A school —

They teach us —

Always keep your eyes open and on your target; blink and it’ll be gone
So, they teach us to not blink.

Speak up! Else, someone else will speak up and usurp your position in Society!
So, they teach us to open and close our mouths, perpetually.

One who cannot live in Society is either a SAVAGE BEAST or GOD — most often the former one
So, they teach us to despise being alone — find a group or perish.

Q. I’m a son and a brother; can anyone usurp my positions as these?

A. You speak of your position in Family. Society bears a semblance to Family, yes; but the similarity ends there. The qualities possessed by Family may never be possessed by Society.

Q. Society means a group of individuals living together with mutual understanding — this definition fits a family too…

A. Mutual understanding? No. Your definition is specific to a certain type of Society — ‘harmonious Society’

This is not to say that all these answers are ‘right’ or anything of that sort; this is merely a discussion. You are welcome to join in.
