“You are constantly being trained to be heroic only in the service of your masters – only in slaughter and sacrifice and subjugation. But there is no heroism in serving your masters. Real heroism is questioning why you have masters at all.
All these stories, all these fantasies, all these superpowers – are designed to steal heroism from you, to make it impossible, fantastical, remote, and unachievable – and make you useful to your masters (as a hit man, if needed). What is the opposite of this?
The opposite of fantasy is philosophy. The opposite of mythology is integrity. And integrity is truth in action.”
