The Robbers-Cave Experiment


This is every single one of you dumb motherfuckers. Every. Single. One. Of. You. If you're reading this - it probably applies to you as well. Coincidentally, its also me. Or at least, it was. I've been slowly (oh so slowly) pulling myself out of every "side" of anything and everything I can apply it to over the last six years, and with it comes a clarity I dare say most don't yet recognise. I surely didn't. The first twenty times I read this, I applied it to the obvious, but the thing about knowledge is you cannot ever un-know. When the first wall finally broke (a lengthy, difficult, deeply personal process in and of itself) I was amazed at how many more had been erected behind it. I've been working to knock them down ever since.

Namaste, fuckers.
