Quote – “The Constriction of a Utopia” – 7/29/2020

“All man-made peace is as lasting as the union first gathered. Its duration ends upon the constriction of that collection, down to the smaller units, until it becomes the individual whose mind has questioned what is. For it is that the utopia can only ever be true, when individualized. A person whose mind is not at ease will make the rest not at ease. When such occurs, the individual is either killed or exiled from the group.

Any person’s peace is their peace, not the world’s own. The world does not know peace, when it knows war. The individual becomes a dictator, when their peace becomes the world’s war.”

– Modern Romanticism
