The addiction to innocence

Unfortunately, this week I cannot write about my passion, branding, as the extreme violence against peaceful protestors in Turkey has left me worried…

Everything started because a child wanted to raze a park and put in its place a shopping mall, in order to sustain a cancer-like growth… Children cannot grasp that others don’t want what they want as they don’t have the cognitive capacity to see others as real and separate people. And to this date, a child continues to deny the reality, blame everyone but himself and show infantile rage…

Our only addiction, is the addiction to innocence. It’s not drugs or anything else… It’s the addiction to not knowing. Not WANTING to know…

James Hillman

Only a naive child identifies too strongly with being good, successful or right. And when that child is given limitless power, unfortunately this is what you get…
