Stay Open-Doored

The Point

Institutions will always irritate people and create problems. Eventually, everyone learns just how optional those institutions are. Trump has thoroughly exposed that for the American political establishment. Rome was another example.

Don’t be afraid.

Don’t fear the Colosseum’s collapse. Don’t fear what people will say when you exit first.

Institutions were made by men. And, like any construct, they were meant to fall at the hands of men. As for the good ones, like the castles of old… Their doors stay open because of superior craftsmanship, though they did shift in their purposes.

Don’t be afraid of waves; make them.
