To be ideal is to be foolish. That is what we are taught. But being ideal is not about being blissfully ignorant. It is not an escape to fantasy in the face of hardships. It is not hippy flower power nor is it the empty promises of Utopian dreams.
Idealism is a defense against despair. When the world taunts us with “stick to what you know”, idealism gives us courage to keep learning, growing, improving. It is the middle ground between the folly of perfectionism and the selfishness of apathy.
How much can you change? And how significantly? I don’t have all the answers and this not another crusade for truth; for truth is subjective. l am an explorer, a passive observer, a jack of all trades…
The Idealist Jack!
