Hubris is a window to a power shift
The glorious thing about being striped bare is exposure to what we care most about.
Indulgence and entitlement grow like nasty habits, slowly, slowly…until they become rooted, hard to extricate. Petulant, complaining, fragile.
Years and decades of indulgence and entitlement, of privilege, remove the wild untamed creativity that comes from living constantly on the edge.
The most creative places in the world are not the ones awash in cash, but those where making do makes it through.
Looking at this from a meta level, entitled nations, even when entitlement is skewed into the hands of the few, have almost zero capacity to respond to massive change. Privilege breeds out resilience while breeding in hubris.
And hubris is a window to a power shift.
