"A child dreams of the new world"
I imagined the simultaneous realities of child like dreams- what it really must have felt like to imagine a 'new world' - to have the opportunity I am sure we have all pined for of a clean slate, a fresh start. The chance to build anything. Anything. And now to look back at this 244 year old experiment and really face the gravity of what really happened. The cultures lost. The countless people whos personal liberties and entire lives were given to try to build this dream, without their consent. The people STILL working, trapped, coerced, and exploited so that we can live out our delusion of material plenty. The lightness of childhood and dreaming and the gravity and weight of circumstance and necessity.
