Storyboard Text

  • As John Lock said: "When there is no property, there is no inquiry." Man constructed his own elaborate cage of society through his evolution of reason and logical thinking.  The only way to escape this trap is to find the psychological Golden Age through nostalgia (the youth of the world). What will one achieve then?
  • A return to the nascent man, one who maintained a golden mean between the indolence of the primitive state and the petulant activity of our own amour-propre!
  • Tools and mechanisms were made to revolutionize daily tasks
  • As the formation of islands, natural disasters, and other environmental forces further became an inhibiting force, families became particular nations unified by morals and character
  • People grow accustomed to consider differences, acquiring ideas of merit and beauty. This constant evaluations was furthered by the increased time for leisure activities such.
  • Jealousy arose from these differences, discord triumphed. The gentlest passions received sacrifices of human blood
  • The idea arose that Man needed more suppression in Civilization to make him gentler (ignoring the fact that there is nothing as gentle as a man in his primitive state)
  • As morality became associated with certain actions, there was the necessity for a punitive justice system. The law was used as a filter to weed out those whose beliefs didn't align with the mainstream
  • And what about labor?
  • The natural inequalities supposedly manifested themselves in a logical manner into the existing social inequalities
  • Specialization of labor from an agrarian society added socioeconomic markers to inequities
