Harsh Words for Dreamers

Nov 15, 2016 8:09am by James Augustus Berens

—“There is a belief popular amongst people who’ve never accomplished anything in life, the idea that one must merely dream or think of what he wants, which is almost always material in nature, and as if by some act of divine will his subjective wants and desires will materialize, with little to no effort expended on his part. Achievement isn’t an act of wishful thinking, only western millennials have had the privilege to maintain such illusions– it is an act of physically imposing one’s will onto the external world. Anything else is an admission that one is devoid of any significant form of agency.”— James Augustus Berens.
