Dumb romantic ideals that our parents tried to teach us in so many simplistic ways intelligent people never would truly understand. In the same way our grandparents did in a common practice that existed since humanity evolved.
So it beckons the question, are we always doomed to repeat the same mistakes and learn nothing from them? Are people just going to eat the younger generations alive and we forget our personal histories?
Chickens do that for survival when the conditions are shit… In some ways… I guess people are like that.
