What if the thin veneer of civilisation is an unnecessary fiction? What if it is actually an artificial constraint on our better natures, a means of maintaining power and status through fear and perceived dependency? What if underneath it we are actually less afraid, less divided, less cruel and more kind than we have been conditioned to think we are?
I really enjoy Euan’s inquisitive musings like this one. More of us should be challenging the status quo and ask these sorts of questions.
