Weekly Wordsmith: Terrance Mckenna

My dear,

In this society people pay six-figure sums to go to good colleges and universities and leave to go work at five-figure sum jobs.


In this society products are bought every day in the millions so that people can be happier, yet deep down they know possessions alone can’t make you happy.


In this society people work, and kill themselves working, so they can buy themselves a life. And in the end complain they did too much working, and not enough living.


So, in this society, sanity dictates we stop doing what everyone’s doing.

But there’s a price.

The cost of sanity in this society, is a certain level of alienation.

Falsely yours,
Terence Kemp McKenna
