Being part of something can be fun, isn’t it? It seems we (not you and me but all the others ofcourse) divide ourselves into parts all the time. We are full-time humans with part-time roles like man or woman, husband, loving husband, wife, inhabitant, soloist, civilian, tourist, employee, cardriver, scholar, bicycle driver, swimmer, holiday enjoyer, traveller, eater, drinker, fitnesser, weightwatcher, expert, sleeper, pet lover, bookreader, music listener, movie watcher, guitarplayer, taxpayer, shopper, philosopher, creator, co-creator, collegue, student, puzzler, player, swimmer, partyanimal, artist, participant, blogwriter etc.
Ofcourse this list is not exhaustive, it’s just to give an idea into how many parts (roles) we human beings can divide ourselves. But not all of these parts are fun. For example taxpayer. Or we accept the non-fun parts just because we have got used to it. Or because we think or assume there are no alternatives.
Now how could we transform our society so that most of the (partial) roles we humans play are fun, and the ones we all believe are not fun, get minimized? Would that be possible? I believe it can be done! If we really wanted to, we could “redesign” society so that most of the things we do (roles we play) together as a society are fun or feel good or are nice. Only because we want it to. Because we think it can be done. Because we want to have a nice world. Because we want to have a new Golden Age. Therefore we maybe need to transform from part-time thinking to party-time thinking. Embrace paradigm changes. Happy party-time hunting!
