The Great Pretenders

We’re terrified of being equals because it means we’ll have less. The world won’t be at our feet and we’ll have to confront the waste of our fathers. It’s easier to look away. It’s easier to pretend like we’re helping people; working to eliminate poverty, hunger, disease, war. But if we were serious, it would’ve been done before.
